    Why is the County Board meeting on a Friday?

    Better get Al Gore on the line to find out what’s causing this.

    Maybe the wind storm will knock down the rickety fences around the Four Mile Run community garden. Then the county will finally replace them. Those split rails look like they were recycled from the OK Corral. That area is so trashy looking.

    Get ready for a sandblasting! The county seems to have laid down its remaining itty bit of salt Monday night/Tuesday morning.

    I am so sick of the windy winter weather. I hope this blows winter right out of town. I want longer, warmer days!
