Evanstonian Lori Rotenberk has sent us a letter suggesting this spring would be a good time for folks to turn over a new leaf in their lawn care habits. We'd like to know what you think of her suggestion that -- among other things -- lawn care companies should be banned.
It seems to Ponzi that just about everybody who asks is getting a handout from the City of Evanston these days. Which leads the pink pig to invoke the old Mike Royko motto for Chicago -- "Ubi est mea?" -- or "Where's mine?"
When it rains, it pours. On Feb. 22, Gov. Quinn in his budget address said Illinois faces serious budget issues. On March 2, Mayor Tisdahl in her state of the city address said Evanston faces a challenging economic climate.
All quiet on the City Council front this morning. Aldermen cancelled their Monday meeting to attend the National League of Cities convention in Washington. Ponzi wonders if they economized on the trip.
