Out on North Powers Avenue along the stretch that runs from Yosemite Avenue to the fire station, city crews were busy Monday blasting paint off the pavement that separates the bike lane from the travel lane.
Tucked at the bottom of a trinket box that I brought with me when I moved several months ago was a trophy that I assumed was one of the Little League tokens handed out to every player when the season concludes.

If you listen to the politicians and pundits in Washington, D.C., every move being made by President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats and Republicans is all about the 2010 midterm elections.
