Contagion

If two nurses wearing hazmat suits can contract ebola, what does that mean for the rest of us. Flu season is upon us. How do you tell the difference between ebola and the flu? Would be nice if the government provided some answers.

To the Anonymous Piece of Trash

You know who you are. Your earlier comment was not posted because it was a personal and inappropriate attack on someone in the business community. As for your most recent comment directed at me, it has been flagged and forwarded to Google. If you ever send me a comment like that again, I will contact the Anonymous hacking network to have you hunted down and publicly exposed for the disgusting, poor excuse of a human being that you are. You're not really anonymous. Don't ever forget that.

Fired Up!



I received an email this afternoon from a resident fired-up over what he witnessed happening on Chatsworth Avenue related to the Palmer Avenue Streetscape. Ricky, the owner of the Corner Store was helping customers in his store as there was no plank for them to walk on. "As the cliche goes, it was a lawsuit waiting to happen," noted the resident. Ricky was then forced to close his business for the remainder of the day so that concrete could be poured in front of his door. Meanwhile over at Nicky's, their business was shutdown during the lunch hour as the crew poured concrete on the right half of the front entrance way. It is bad enough that businesses are being inconvenienced by construction, but forced to close down during normal business hours?! This was not supposed to happen. A matter of fact, when I talked with some of the crew a few weeks ago, they made a point of saying that quick drying concrete would be used for front entrances during OFF HOURS. Not sure why this happened today, but VOL needs to make sure it doesn't happen again. And while they're at it, they need to check the quality of the contractor's work. The resident mentioned that the work is sloppy with many of the sidewalks not aligned properly. Doesn't look like things are getting off to a good start.
