Private firm to run LPDC

“We don’t know exactly what we have,” Stone said. “We had submissions that there was some bond money missing, and we don’t know if it was taken or if there was an error.”
The commission has been facing a budget deficit of about $100,000 but has about a $400,000 fund balance leftover from last year.

Fashion Week? Not for me

Purple is the new color, or so I’m told. We will likely see purple polo shirts and popped collars galore this spring, thanks to this manna passed down from the runway to a T.V., department store and eager consumer near you.
Knowing this makes me feel good about life, mostly because it reinforces the idea that there is an audience for everything and one person’s feelings won’t stop the wheels from turning.
Purple?
