Seeking a Healthy Start to the Day

I have lately changed my diet, as many of us tend to do as we pass through out lives.

I’ve looked over many possibilities.

I still eat eggs without frying them in butter.

I use a dab of oil.

No more bacon or ham…simply too much sodium and sodium is a killer.

Sugar is almost as bad. What to do?

According to my sister, who is an expert at this stuff, oat bran with raisins with a handful of fresh blueberries on top in the morning is a good start.

Last week’s primary did not draw a large vote. It didn’t draw even a modest vote.

Order of Engagement Chosen

By Josh Resnek

Final ballot positions for the November 5 election have been chosen by the Election Department for everyone who is running for public office.

In a political world where every edge a candidate can carve out for themselves matters, ballot position can be crucial or it can be irrelevant or it can be both at the same time.

In the at-large councilor race, being first on the ballot can often mean as much as a 2% – 5% uptick in the total vote.

Councilor Stephen Simonelli, trying to become an at-large councilor, was chosen number 1.

Simonelli recently finished 8th in at-large balloting in the primary. Ticket topper in the at-large primary vote, Wayne Matewsky, appears last on the ballot in a bit of electoral irony.

Matewsky has won before appearing last on the ballot so he was unphased by his positioning.
