THE FINE PRINT:
Published online since 2005 by the City of Treasure Island Public
Information Office for exactly 1262 mostly calm and
reasonable online subscribers. For more sublime reading pleasure, back
issues available here.
We're a big fan of fans but it's that time of year, when air conditioning is second
nature to switching on the light, where we'd thrill to giving our fans
a vacation from their non-stop whirling since, oh, about May.
There are signs autumn is approaching, though - moist rooms of budget
workshop deliberations are history; the TI Art Guild shows are
back at city hall; Dockmaster Les at the yacht club is looking for Holiday Boat Parade
sponsors; and, yes, Canadian
Thanksgiving is just about three weeks away ... virtually a nippy cold
front of TI autumnal events are upon us. And fall? Conveniently
scheduled to begin next Tuesday at 5:18pm. And our fans? No vacation for
them, not for a few weeks yet ...
Is it a flock of Canadian geese sensing fall? (5:18pm Tuesday,
you know). Perhaps someone learning
Morse Code in their car? No, most likely it's happy drivers on Isle of
Capri and Palms honking their horns in extreme pleasure as the long-awaited
road repaving project comes to their street. Smooth, triple-blade Gillette
razor quality roads should be finished by the end of September. Click the
clicky above for a list of streets that will be made as black as midnight
on a moonless night.
Using a complex formula made up of deleted health care reform pages,
old phonebooks and sunspot cycles, we've come up with a nifty,
new, one-size-fits-all residential holiday
trash collection schedule. Simply put - after a holiday, we collect one
day later. Yep, that even means Saturday
collections for Friday holidays (the exception is when
Christmas or New Year's is on a Saturday - and we'll deal with that
later). The backstory on devising the schedule is here
but there comes a moment at work when you've made up your mind that you
just aren't doing anything productive for the rest of the day
... probably around the same time this newsletter shows up ... so you
might want to read it then.
