Here’s The Scoop … Under The Midwest Weather … Happy Passover & Happy Easter …

April 20, 2011 by Barbara

THERE’S STILL NO SPRING IN CHICAGO …

Dear Readers … Under the weather .. The Buckingham Fountain in Grant Park was officially turned back on amidst gray skies…and rain and cold temps have continued on in the days that followed…snow..more rain and golf ball size hail …you name it…As a result not only do we suffer from the lack of sunny skies.. and figuring how many layers to pile on if we dare to go outside …but sickness abounds from all around coming from those in various stages of having the common cold …ugh!..

This writer has been on the cusp of being a full fledged recipient …and dodging that bullet ….thus far… I did take the time to watch the presentation to the the Commission from April 12th after dealing with  computer “buffering” issues on the day of …I previously posted that portion would be part 3 of the posts covering that LBTS Roundtable and it will be…but I need some time to ponder just how I want to write it up… Those who missed it can find the backup and the video on the Town’s website  … http://www.lauderdalebythesea-fl.gov/ … or for some insane reason it can be found in the backup for tonight’s Planning & Zoning Board meeting at 6:30 pm as Planner Cecelia Ward will be making a second presentation to them…The question for me is ….WHY?… The Town should have required the members of this board to either attend or watch the meeting on the 12th or watch the video online afterward… The board should then have been asked to submit any questions they had of Ms. Ward to her… According to the P & Z backup online this is the only item on tonight’s agenda… What a waste of time and money to have staff there as well as the TAtty. …as well as opening the Jarvis Hall for a repeat presentation that most likely will be given to 3 or 4 members with no audience (if previous P & Z meetings are any indicator) …  and due to this being Passover and Easter week …And if that isn’t bad enough … It conflicts with the Open House for the Welcome Center at the LBTS Chamber of Commerce set from 5-7 pm!…  Bad planning indeed!…

This writer will take the weekend to mull over the part 3 post in between birthdays…holidays …dodging germs …and freezing at the first Cubs game I am scheduled to attend this season at Wrigley Field on Sunday according to the weather forecast!…Double ugh!…

Happy Passover and Happy Easter to all … & of course ….enjoy and be thankful for sunny .. warm LBTS!…
