Are they toying with us?

I am very confused or very stupid. Will somebody help me understand the process that ultimately ended with the selection of the names “Hansen Way” and ‘Tinloy Street” for the two frontage roads in Grass Valley?

It was my understanding that the City Council had opened the decision up to the public and was accepting suggestions a week or so ago. I read in The Union that the most recommendations received was for the name “Wolf Creek.” So, logic tells me that one of the roads would have been titled Wolf Creek Road or Street or something. Am I nuts?

One wonders why a call went out to the public for suggestions. Are they toying with us? Are we supposed to believe now that we have a say in anything at all? Mind you, I have nothing against Tinloy or Hansen; I just want to understand how things get done in this wonderful little town of ours.
