"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

Slightly Indisposed

An eye test procedure  at 9.00 am has blurred my eyesight for most of the day.

Hence no post. Thank you for the comments.

No progress reports  have been provided yet on the Joint Work Space.

I would have voted to eliminate the more extravagant items in the design.; specifically the green roof and a complete floor of space  with no purpose  identified.

I believe the site location is completely inappropriate.

I  urged Council to step back and take time to assess.

The majority voted otherwise. The decision to proceed  was made.

I do not expect any change.

Obviously there is concern in the community.

 I think comment  is  always legitimate

In the matter of the food pantry and financial support from tax revenues.

I do not agree the town has authority to impose taxation for contributions to charity ...any charity.

I believe dependence on food banks in this Year of Our Lord  2014 is a both shame and  a disgrace.

That it co-exists with extraordinary affluence makes it even less acceptable.

Do take care. It cannot be nice to be stuck with listening to the voices of the media and being unable to retreat into a book. Music ?

I quite agree about using tax money to fund the food bank - were it not for the fact that other organizations do very nicely on the tax-payers' dime.
If it is not right for one, it should not be right for any.

Social assistance is the purview of higher levels of government, isn't it?

Judging from the # of radio stations that have already switched to all Xmas music, they must all be suicidal. Way to drive people to electronics & elevator music.

Used to be you heard Christmas music at the Church
Carol Evening Service-[ optional -1], the school afternoon Christmas Concert [ optional -1]. maybe for an hour on the radio from a department store [ optional- 5 ] and perhaps some bell ringing from the Sally Ann.
Now it can drive you completely bonkers.
