Go Ahead Have Another Cup (Or Two Or Three) Of Joe

Any morning begins like every morning for me at work: coffee. java. cup o joe.
Before my day begins I do the ‘java jive baby.’
Everyone at work knows to leave me be until I have my first cup of coffee. Building on fire? Hacked off reader? Treasury agent at the front counter inquiring about counterfeit $20 bills? (This actually happened by the way.) They will all have to wait until after I’ve had my first cup of coffee.
People say I drink too much coffee. Through endless staff meetings, sales calls, e-mails, customer complaints and other related activities my coffee cup is never far from my grasp. At work we usually have the stuff brewing all day. On weekends I can drain the pot. Well as it turns out the stuff that I thought bad for me may actually be good for me or at least not bad.

House Demolition Program Is Getting Some Positive Feedback

Over the past year and a half Fairbury has knocked down literally dozens of homes that were unfit for habitation. Some have applauded this measure as a positive step to dealing with the type of people who are typically drawn to living in substandard housing. Others are not so happy as rat trap rental properties are taken off the market, both as a source of income and as a means of cheap living.
The problem we have in Fairbury with run down and substandard housing that is allowed to be inhabited is not an issue unique to our community. The same problem exists everywhere. Other communities are now taking notice of Fairbury’s handling of the measure and want to be clued in as well.
