  • Residents concerned over zoning of old Brooks School

     HILLVIEW - Some Hillview residents believe that a new trucking company moving into the city would cause an increase in noise, among other issues.

    Those residents made their own noise for the Hillview City Council during a public information hearing at the city’s government center.

    Brooke White, a former Dolphin team member, served as Thomas’ assistant coach this summer.
