  • Alcohol petition making its rounds

    With two weeks left, more than half the signatures needed to include an alcohol-by-the-drink question on the May Primary ballot have been gathered.

    Last week, Kehoe said, about eight people began a door-to-door campaign to collect the remaining signatures.

  • Love and break ups

    The other day a friend announced that she had "broken up" with her daughter. She laughed as she said it, but there was a hint of seriousness to her words. At any rate, she was obviously upset.

    "What did your daughter say about it?" I asked. I couldn't imagine a mother actually doing something like that, although I'm sure it crosses most moms' minds at least occasionally.

    "Oh, I didn't tell her!" she said. "I broke up with her secretly. Besides, I don't think it's possible for a mom to break up with a child."
