Tuesday in the 13601

       What do you do with 700 HP ?   The showroom at FX in the Bay was loaded with Dodge Challengers including one of the Hellcats priced at $70,365.  Sure it's fast, but what good is that. You can outrun the cop but not the radio.
       It's a statement.....Like a gold chain and a cigarette boat at the public dock with a couple babes on the bow.  Still, it's not for me...besides in a couple months it will be sold on TV at three in the morning for $35K.
       Besides I ordered a new cooler today....a Perlick, the Cadillac of coolers...No BeverageAire for me !
       Had a ton of comments today on the snack bar at the Arena. Why are they pursuing this course ? It's crazy, costly and not making the City look good as they roll out the Arena.
       This idea of groups holding events doing concessions is just plain wrong and contrary to the bid specs nobody responded to. As someone who holds licenses to do what I do, I have no interest in watching amateurs wing it on the public dime.
        President Obama was criticized today for going to a baseball game in Havana....Give me a break. What was he going to accomplish by rushing back to DC to "deal" with the Brussels bombings?
       Arizona and Utah tonight.....Gotta tune in to see what happens.

About the arena & city leadership: It's high time we no longer allow the tail to wag the dog. People living in this city pay a pretty fair amount in taxes. Is competent leadership to much to ask for? I'm sick and tired of this city manager not owning the choices she makes. No accountability begets incompetence, thank you madam manager but we are all stocked up here!

Gardner got an order last night, she better well damn carry out that order and do her job. If she cant' handle a concession stand, how the hell can she be a qualified department head??

The City previously ran the stand with much less people in a cramped space and now all of sudden they can't run it? You could get the place running in 24 hours....wait, the City should hire you back to run the stand as a part time employee. Has anyone seen the new Arena sign on Coffeen? Again, another blunder...too small and cramming to much to read as one passes. Just like the scoreboard ubdersized for the job.

She's qualified because she ran an Adult Home......And the Powers that be said she's qualified.........Almost as funny as the JCIDA Ag Specialist telling there's windfarms being looked at in the southern part of the county.....And the location is a secret...Time for the Pension-seeking overpaid man to be relieved of his duties..........Which are???????

Addison will not discipline her friend, she has so few.

Maybe the city should hire some fast food workers as consultants, and teach parks and rec how to run a small food stand.

Just like anything it takes work! Not what all the people at City Hall are looking for. Work is hard. 😕

It is hypocritical and telling that our mayor(on hiatus) is so eager to defend leftist Obama about his distasteful baseball outing, but when Christie was criticized for not leaving the campaign trail to personally plow the roads after a blizzard, the mayor joined in with the criticism.

Jeff,

I think you would make an excellent Parks and Recreation head! With your business experience, leadership skills and familiarity with the workings of the city you would be a natural.

If you promise to keep the Syracuse game on, I'll come by the bar and buy tons of drinks.
