You're lucky if this is your worse problem. My front walk is a bus stop with 8 screamingRead Moreadolescents , I can't walk on my front walk to leave for work in the AM, I have summer camp counselors screaming LOUDER LOUDER! On megaphones all summer (judge refuses to stop them), garbage trucks coming as early as 4:30 AM on SATURDAY morning (Pre-K), 8 story hotel going up, business in back of me where people look into my windows and look at me on my BACK porch (have to keep blinds & curtains closed now all the time). I'll trade you your nice quiet bottles any day if you want to live in this hell hole. I pay $12,500 taxes to live in a dump, no driveway or garage, either.

I think "still waiting for answers" is a good way to say it. The fight over Common CoreRead Morei s far from being over, I fully expect it to start back up in full as we head toward the new school year. As long as that fight keeps going, the assessment leak rumors and Cummings involvement are going to hang around.

I think I know who you mean! Does he have a lot of tattoos and hang out around Bloomfield ave? IRead Morewor k on that street and saw him gesturing a lot the other day.

Thanks for responding! I was beginning to think my friends and I were the only ones seeing thisRead Morehuma n! He often has strips of clothing (or something) tied around somewhat random portions of his limbs. Def. wears lots of beaded necklaces. I once saw him pounding some rocks on a street corner and whispering words. The next day the rocks were assembled and there was red stuff on the concrete. I did not dare approach the scene. More recently I did see him "gesturing a lot" as you said. It's like he's moving the air? Today I saw him on yet another corner, but this time with a wooden staff in hand?

I live in the area and attended the meetings. What is amazing is that Tom O’Beirne, asideRead Morefr om offering to pave the road and improving the property in the PUBLIC RIGHT OF WAY where people walk, said at the meeting that he would be willing to contribute an additional $50,000.00 towards a historic restoration. He also posted that on line. NOT ONE OTHER RESIDENT OF THE STREET CAME FORWARD TO MATCH THAT OFFER. So now they want us to pay for their special road. What about their curbs and sidewalks, if they are so worried why don’t they fix them up like O’Beirne did. That answer is simple, they don’t want to spend their own money. Pave the road. Jim Jacobs
