Fact is, Santa, we use a bazillion plastic bags. We use them in every, single garbage and refuse container in town. We use them to pick up dog poop, assuming we pick up dog poop. And some of us — and more importantly, some of our guests, the ones who foot the bill for our lifestyles — use them when they buy groceries and gifts. With the grocery stores doing a great job of steering people away from plastic bags, I can't fathom why we want to go all Rambo and ban them.
And finally, Santa, please give our elected council folk and mayor the extra strength they need to begin to tackle the really hard jobs coming up. They've done a great job of fixing some of the easier things, but stuff coming down the road is going to be a lot harder, as evidenced by the shameful reasoning behind ramping up user fees at Meadow Park. Let's see, usage — and therefore revenue — going down, staffing costs going up. What's wrong with this picture?
Thanks, Santa. The cookies and eggnog will be in the usual place. You know where the brandy is.
