Beyond the vote

OK, now that the counting is done, isn’t it gratifying that we common folks can once again tread softly on the hallowed byway of Howard Street?

Seems the majority of voters didn’t support a gated community in their backyard. Oh well, at least the city public works department rewarded the residents of that compound with a new paving job. Say, how about repaving the basketball court as well? After all, the city paid for the original.

As for the City Council, boy, some things never change. Almost like a revolving door with few exceptions. Along those lines, a heads up to David Nealley. One afternoon years ago at Geaghan’s restaurant, the late Bill Nealley was asked why he never ran for a second term. He simply replied, “Ya can’t beat ’em.” Good gosh, Kemosabe, wonder what he meant by that?
