This will be going on for weeks - it would be nice if JC's Twitter could update and say where and when street sweeping and milling will really be happening. Better if they just ended street sweeping till all is done.


Agreed. They could easily put out a blast saying Zone 5 street sweeping suspended until further notice.

1. Do not try to bypass Historic. You will be caught, most likely by neighbors. It's really not that much of a hassle.

2. The historic PROCESS is not expensive. At times, historic MATERIALS are more expensive (eg. windows). But it is likely that going from wood to iron is bringing the property into historic compliance in which case you were planning on spending the money anyway, it seems.

3. I have no idea what this means: "with all the changes is this still the case". What Changes?

Many downtown streets were milled last week for the repaving process. There are no signs up indicating that they'll be closed for repaving tomorrow (Monday). If common sense prevailed, this would mean no street cleaning because a street sweeper should not drive on a milled street. But then again they might just ticket cars for the fun of it.

Nothing on the JC Parking twitter feed mentions this.

Anyone have the inside scoop as to if alternate side of the street parking will be enforced between the milling and paving phases?

This business needs to take a little pride in themselves and their community. Early-morning runs along the waterfront reveal litter everywhere from its patrons. Plastic beer cups, discarded cigarette packs, etc. line the benches just outside of, and stretching north from, Lutze. While in a perfect world slobs would clean up after themselves, the reality is that in the absence of such common courtesy, Lutze should be cleaning up after their patrons and/or refuse to let customers leave beer cup-in-hand.

weirdly, certain streets (example: 3rd btwn Coles & Jersey) have this signage too, though it was just milled and paved like a month ago. They better not be going through the expense of doing it again. What's there now is NOT a temporary paving, it's final...stop lines painted and everything.

The solid metal gates are prohibited. The permitted ones must be the open "mesh" type. If you see solid ones, they're either a) getting away with it, or b) leftover from the past and will be replaced with the right kind eventually.

The law isn't stopping you from being a Catholic. It's just stopping you from treating other people like subhumans. Your arguments are identical to the ones made against interracial marriage, desegregation, and abolition, fyi.

Your concern trolling about the Constitution would make a lot more sense if you had the vaguest understanding of how it works, and if you weren't constantly harping on about nonsense like tiger murals scaring awful drivers.


The law requires people to call Jesus a liar on marriage. Jesus said, "A man leaves his father and mother and clings to his wife and the two will be one flesh." Religion does not stop when you leave your house of worship. Granted this is another topic. The Supreme Court also said Dred Scott was not a citizen. So why is the Supreme Court right now?


The Bible, in 1 Timothy 2:12, also says, "I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet."

I don't see you being quiet here, so please stop cherry picking your verses.

The supreme court disagrees with you. But, feel free to continue to posit yourself as a constitutional scholar.

Re: Landlord Charge for AC Unit Installation

I would caution that if the tenant convinces the landlord that he can't charge him due to the lease wording and then tenant installs on his own, ANY damage done as a result is legitimately deductible from the security deposit. If you rub landlord the wrong way by being a stickler over this, he could eventually charge you more than the cost of the install.

A basic understanding of cities shows that elevated rail was detrimental to their livability. Would you like to reconstruct the lines down CC Drive?

I only used Uber Eats when I had a $5 off code to basically equal no delivery fee. $4.99, what a rip off. I usually use FastBoy if they're running a promotion, but between all options (Fast Boy, Uber Eats, Grubhub, Seamless, Delivery.com) you can generally find a discount and it's rarely with Uber Eats.

Would you care to share some of the research where you've been learning about vaccination? I think it would be helpful for us all to get a sense of what you've been reading.

dumb. Just allow home owners a front driveway, and also change the law to allow a second car parked on the street in the driveway spot. That way you get 2 fewer cars looking for parking spots around the neighborhood (the car parked inside the driveway + the car parked on the street in front of the driveway). Everyone else on the block benefits as there is less competition for the remaining spots.


1. You can already do that if you have a legal driveway
2. Your theory is flawed. Many times, nobody is home, or just one person is home. In either case, an on-street space is forced to remain vacant whereas with no driveway it would be occupied. A property owner does not inherently "own" the 12' of curb in front of his/her house. This is true for people who expect to find parking a hop-skip-and-jump from their front door, and equally true for those who think they're entitled to a driveway. Have you ever driven down a street full of driveways? It's hideous, and that's being polite.

As a point of comparison, last month I reserved a unit at public storage for $50/mo at the same size that it cost over $110/mo at Liberty Self Storage. It was worth the hassle of moving.

That said, PS needs to get their act together because they weren't well organized and seemed to be pushing larger/more expensive units. So, just go in there well informed about what you want.

Does anyone know what the situation is with parking at the LSP park & ride during snow. Will any cars left there be effectively plowed in by their lot maintenance, or is it a good option?
