The Feds Could Be Watching–The Train Gang–Gofer The Good Stuff

September 16th, 2010 · 15 Comments · City Council, Development and Zoning, News and Events

City officials must be super careful about the effort to push through a regional wastewater treatment authority with Trumbull and Monroe. It has all the makings of déjà vu all over again. Lots of money involved processing waste, it’s an underground ca-ching machine. Let’s hope decision makers in this process don’t risk their liberty. Dozens of people, if it comes to fruition, are […]

Someone Call Ruby

June 28th, 2008 · 49 Comments · Analysis and Comment

All this talk on OIB about retirement parties has me thinking (that usually spells trouble) about where I’d have my soirée, although I’m a long, long way from a gold watch.
