-Boro council meeting is tonight. Work session begins at 7:00 o’clock. The regular meeting starts at 7:30. Those who wish to be heard regarding watering the planters should be sure to attend. Boro council seems very responsive to citizen issues so I am sure the trip will be worth your while. My opinion: If the issue is money, I hope Boro council finds a way to water the planters. Main Street could use more polishing not less. To invite business Main Street needs to be decked out…and if we could only do something about the appearance of those circles!?
-The State of the Union address is at 9:00 o’clock tonight. Please take the time and have the patience to listen and see whatever we shall see or hear. My opinion: The union is in deep distress, both at home and abroad. Thankfully, this is President Bush’s last address. He landed in stormy waters not all of his making but sailed us into other dangerous storms of his making. May the next master and commander be more seasoned in navigating us through stormy waters and lead us to calmer ones, at home and abroad.
-Please stay with the Lonegan issue. The corruption in Trenton with double dipping and pay to play in this failing economy is unconscionable enough but now there is reason to think under Governor Corzine's administration there is abuse and manipulation of our rights as American citizens as well. Steve Lonegan wants a federal probe into the matter. Maybe that's not such a bad idea.

Bob Ingle who blogs “On Politics” for the Courier News makes some more interesting revelations here. See his post “ Are Corzine’s pig and pony shows stacked?” Seems the governor may be manipulating the questions during his town meetings on his toll hike, shades of Hillary and the Iowa caucus a few weeks ago. If so, Lonegan’s complaints about his right to dissent being violated seem all the more poignant and credible. My opinion: Folks, we must be vigilant and express our condemnation. Our Constitution is not going to be preserved by Tinkerbell throwing around her magic fairy dust. If Governor Corzine is cutting constitutional corners, he will do so until we “just say no”.
