  • Lawmakers pass state budget Friday night

    Following some concessions, lawmakers agreed on a two-year, $17.1 billion spending plan last Friday evening, halting a potential shutdown of much of state government on July 1.

    The main difference between the House and Senate was funding for the state's schools most in need of replacement. That problem was solved early Friday as the final bill would allow state matches for category five schools that levy a nickel tax. Category five schools are considered to be in the worst shape.

  • Thoughts on the election

    The primary election is history, and what an election it was.

    As usual, my predictions were mostly all wrong, proving that if I had ever placed wagers on such things, I'd surely be living on a friend's sofa by now.

    I tend not to get too excited about elections. I do enjoy covering them as a reporter, but I seldom get too wrapped up in the results.

  • Lowell Avenue gets new steeple
