News That Matters
Good Friday Morning,
Shopping Putnam: My car problems were resolved through the purchase of a 2005 Jeep Liberty a couple of weeks back. I bought the car with some trepidation from a used car lot, something I have never done before. So far the experience has been pretty good.
The car came from Putnam Auto Sales, a small, unprepossessing lot on old Route 6 behind Put Plaza owned by Luis Carranza. The staff was as helpful as they could be, had the car ready on time and the paperwork in order. And when the check engine light came on the other day, they organized a repair right away with no hassles. Thanks to Andrew, Ulysses, Brian and Andrew for making the experience a good one. And if you go there, tell them I sent you.
As expected, last evening the County Legislature voted 6-3 to approve the lease agreement for Tilly Foster Farm. The meeting ran way late, too late for me to make my class at Arts on the Lake so I must publicly apologize to my instructor, the remarkable Lora Lee Ecobelli, and my class partner for not being there.
The three Legislators who were brave enough to vote in favor of fiscal oversight and responsibility were Tony Fusco, Sam Oliverio and my personal hero, Dan Birmingham. You owe them a debt of gratitude.
There's an awful lot going on this weekend and I hope you're all quite flexible for you're not going to want to miss some of the events, many of which overlap. Tough decisions are going to have to be made here!
PS: Rebecca, I'll write soon. I promise.
As always, some of the entries come from Manna Jo Green's monthly events calendar. We love her.
