I haven't read the article yet, but the border ads are both for Gilbert Auto so that made me chuckle!

I was pleased to see that the excess funds will be returned, and that wiser heads on the board prevailed. The bond now has a chance!

I agree that his statement invoked an emotional response from me. I would like to vote yes for maintenance, classroom improvements, and many other things that are much needed. That said, I think the essential improvements can be done for less than 48 million, and we can't afford that much as a community at this time.

Do we really want someone on our school board that is so inflexible that they will stand by a decision until they die.? What if new facts emerge? Sounds like he will spend all the taxpayers money no matter what or how...Wow.... I'm thinking this will cost the district their approval vote...they just lost my "yes"

It is nice! I work for myself and do take breaks to observe the world and occasionally comment. Interesting how you assumed I was stealing someone's time. Sorry, I have no openings :)

Wow where are you watching the traffic? At the corner of Negative and Bitter Streets?
I'm looking at Alder Street traffic now from my office and I'm not seeing the 50% plus you mention breaking the law. Nor do I see any unlicensed minibikes. :) However I did just return from a Seattle trip, so perhaps I am just appreciating WW traffic and drivers after that!

janrocks 1 year, 8 months ago on CrossRoads pulls up stakes

I am very sad to read this. The majority of people who can afford to eat out now are the tourists, and unfortunately CrossRoads is just a bit far away to catch that traffic. I used to eat lunch out at least 3x a week, and now it's about 3x a month. I'm sure many others are doing the same, stressing the downtown lunch businesses. :(
