Residents concerned about speeding on 
Wyatt Avenue

[APRIL 28, 2000]  Lincoln Daily News offers an ombudsman service for readers who report specific community complaints, concerns and problems. The most recent report came from Wyatt Avenue residents who said, in part, “The problem we have is that a lot of people drive very fast on this street.
