Some good news on the environment – I have mentioned that we have been working to protect the wetlands where they want to build a 160,000 square foot store in our small county. Â The developer (who is developing this on speculation) says that the wetlands isn’t really a wetlands so shouldn’t be protected. Â An independent firm was hired … one that our mayor hand picked. Â Our mayor has run on a platform of promising a discount store – no matter the cost to the environment. Great news!! Â The independent firm said that Wetlands 4 IS a wetland!!! So very good!! Â We shall see what happens now.

Today is also another big day in our town. Today is election day and we shall see if we can get some people into town offices that can take some creative action to get our town back on track. We have some real work to do (as many places do) to get the finances balanced and the schools doing great again. Â Unfortunately this same mayor had slashed art, sports and music when she first came in to office and lots of students then “choiced out” to other towns … and took the tax money with them. Â This school choice started in Massachusetts awhile ago and is not working for our town. All in all I am hopeful that we can get some people in office who are not running on their personal agendas!!
