A few thoughts

We survived Christams once again. Christmas Eve our son, his fiance, and myself went to my parents for chili and a little get together. Christmas we all went to my in-laws. We brought the ham and all the trimmings, and I got my homemade chocolate chip cookies from my mother-in-law. I hope everybody else had just as nice a time.

The next big thing for us is the indoor car show next month at the Expo Center in Rock Island. I think it’s neat that you can drive through the snow drifts, with the heater going full blast, park your car then walk into a car show. We’ve made it just about year since it began. We’ll post something about it when it gets closer.

With the new year approaching, we have the stoplight cameras being turned back on. Then on January 15th, the speed cameras return. If you’ve got a lead foot, you might want to remember those dates.

A little later next year, we’ll be voting on the Davenport Promise. I’ve made no secret of the fact that I’m against the program in its current form. Even with all the questions Mr. Malin answered for us it still seems like a bad idea to me. We’ll also talk more about that.

We’ve also noticed that the pothole fairies have been very busy. All I can say is that I’m glad I sold my little Escort because some of these potholes look big enough to swallow it.

Comments on these subjects, or just about anything else are always welcome.

    On West Locust where they filled, or better stated, over-filled, the potholes during the late spring, the mixture was up too high and the first snowplow that went over it ripped up all the patches. With luck they should get them over filled by july.

    The servie road off of East 46th Street to the American store/Game Stop intersection has three large potholes. We’ve encountered a problem in determining who is actually responsible for the repair of these potholes. I am becomg increasingly frustrated with the lack of interst in this problem. I have been researching the owners and contacting their support staff regarding this problem since November 18, 2008.

  3. I was just wondering the other day whose responsibility those roads on the west side of Elmore are, and whether they were city streets. If they’re not city streets and the property owners aren’t interested in fixing them, I’d contact the surrounding businesses and let them know you won’t be shopping there until their driveways are repaired.
