WDT: Friday Night

   The nightmare of Factory Street extends back to Mill Street soon as that closes at times and motorists and businesses endure the painfully slow project. Bankers hours for the contractor. No end in sight for all of us.
     Councilwoman Teresa Macaluso uttered a big "so what ?" to the Time's spanking in an editorial this morning.
     Meanwhile names are fluttering about already for next year's Council race.  Incumbent Steve Jennings has told colleagues he is running. Ms. Macaluso is non committal and an old friend's name is out there in Jeff Smith who has several years on the board. 2015 hopeful Cliff Olney is widely considered to be running again, and Deputy Fire Chief Russ Randall is being mention. Chief Randall has been outspoken in the current disputes and is a regular attendee of Council meetings. He would likely be retired by then, so it wouldn't be a replay of last year's debacle.
     At Pete's tonight an electrical problem threatens dinner, so I may have to move up the street. No they got it fixed although pre Millennial staffers were upset when the computer POS was down.
     And word surfaced today of a massage business called Asian Spa on Coffeen Street. Sounds like Watertown has a happy ending in its future.

Sure. Good idea. How about a retired chief of police and DPW boss so everyone can take care of their own. Isn't that what it's all about?

Ive heard that happy ending joke so many times I don't bother repeating it anymore...but that's because I know a lot of people who routinely get massages.

Quit your belly aching about Factory street construction. You want them to keep both lanes open and not close the street? Move to another side of town. Its just not worth spending the money for you north side losers. that money was already spent on state street and Coffeen street reconstruction projects.

If it makes you feel better, they shut down Holcomb. But that's because over hear we WANT them to so we can use the side streets and the threw traffic finds a different way.

Because the council meetings can go no longer than 3 hours Danny, that's why not.
