What I'm curious about is ... why is the Other Paper totally MIA regarding MaxPak this week? Haven't seen the dead-tree edition yet, but there's nothing online.

News is Best

Ron,
you mean they slipped up? maybe the farm team editor is to busy listening to those "speak out messages for Somerville & Cambridge now.

Whatever

I'm guessing they won't write anything until they have some facts, not the rumors that get posted here. And, it's hard to get to the bottom of things when the politicians avoid your calls:

"And a Glorious Fall It Will Be"

CambriTalk.................

In a surprise move today, Alderperson MA Heuston announced that the KSS property has been sold to the "Cambriville Center for Rat Research". The non-profit company plans to build a 45 story research center on the five acre parcel and will focus on the eating habits of Cambriville's rodent population. Heuston will submit the necessary zoning amendment but cautions that it is subject to early withdrawal.
*******************************
CNN, NESN, Boston Catholic Television and Al Jezera will televise the scheduled meeting discussing the restoration of the "Joanie Batzek Memorial Brick Wall" on Tuesday. Co-hosting the event with Joan herself, will be Ward 6 Alderperson Rebba Geewiz. Can't wait.
*********************************
The hearing on the Condo Conversion ordinance has been postponed to a latter date. Alderperson Tom Taylor, currently converting his home to 5 condos, requested the postponement.
*********************************
Alderperson Bob Trane's recent foray into Progressive World on election day has resulted in his hopitalization at the Cambriville Center for Communi-cable Diseases. After his visit to Progressive World Headquarters Trane developed a severe rash across his entire body as well as heart palpitations that were "off the charts". Get well soon Bob!
************************************
The fun-raiser for the Mayor aboard Herb Chambers yacht the "Deep Benz" was a hugh success. The yacht, currently moored at the Winter Hill Yacht Club and Keno Parlour, will also serve as the "Winter City Hall"(otherwise known as the "Hall of Smoke and Mirrors") according to mayoral spokesperson "TT the Bear" Champion.
*********************************
Former Clerk of Courts candidate Alderperson Bruce Desmond will be having a bake sale and crafts fair today at his home. Co-sponsored by the Cambriville Arts Council, all proceeds will go to assisting Desmond to retire the campaign debt he recently incurred. Artists from across the city will display a wide range of origami objects made from discarded "Desmond for Clerk of Courts" campaign signs.
*************************************
Adding a little sparkle to today's Liberty Band performance on the Joseph A. Curtatone Concourse at City Hall will be the Uzbekistan National Symphony Orchestra. We hear that the local host for the four member orchestra was none other that former alderperson candidate Larry Paoella. A sumptuous meal of roast dog, dandilion greens and jackass milk wine was prepared and served by Larry at his home last night. Sorry we missed it! Also scheduled to perform at today's event will, of course, be the "Von Roche Family Singers".(subject to successful performance fee negotiations) Showtime is when Bill Roche says it is.

Tomorrow in Cambriville's Food Section:

"Progressive Soup" - Just add nuts!

MH"s Trash ordinance

Speaking of Ms. Heuston and her rodent research, has anyone else followed the discussions concerning the Trash Ordinance. Her committee works for months to draft an ordinance that had more questions than answers. MH was visibly angry at the BOA meeting when her colleagues questioned some of the items in the ordinance. She was then quoted as saying that the ordinance was fine, 'we copied it word for word from Cambridge's ordinance'! This is what her committee spent months on!? Then at the committee meeting held to iron out the problems, she was one of the people proposing changes (which was difficult to do since she didn't have the proposal in front of her, just an old draft copy which didn't match the final product!). There were grammatical errors, there was a provision that homeowners must clean the front of their homes, and 'to the middle of the street', which several aldermen were smart enough to get deleted, despite Roche and Sullivan stating that they thought it was a good idea! And did I hear wrong, or did it specify that the new required barrels would be purchased from Russell Disposal? Another moneymaker for the Russell-Koty family! Ms. Heuston and her committee looked like a bunch of clowns!

A young Dr. Sister McCarthy

During the olden day's when Dr. Sister McCarty was just moving to Somerville as a young nun,
a minister whom she once had a crush on decided that a visual demonstration
would add emphasis to his Sunday sermon.

Four worms were placed into four separate jars.
The first worm was put
into a container of alcohol.
The second worm was put
into a container of cigarette smoke.
The third worm was put into
a container of chocolate syrup.
The fourth worm was put into
a container of good clean soil.
At the conclusion of the sermon,
the Minister reported the following results:

The first worm in alcohol -
Dead.
The second worm in cigarette smoke -
Dead.
Third worm in chocolate syrup -
Dead.
Fourth worm in good clean soil -
Alive.
So the Minister asked the congregation -

What can you learn from this demonstration?
Young Dr. Sister McCarthy was sitting in the back,
quickly raised her hand and said

"As long as you drink,
smoke and eat chocolate,
you won't have worms!"
