No news is good news

Nothing new to report in the County of Howard today. But I've got a few things to say nonetheless.

First, there's another potential winter storm brewing for later this week (Thursday and Friday). The National Weather Service--which in case you didn't know provides the baseline forecast for all of our local weathermen and even the national chain sites (these folks then tweak their forecasts based on...intuition?...guesswork?)--is playing it close to the vest, saying we're in for any combination of rain, snow, sleet, freezing rain, and/or locusts. As the week progresses, we'll know better if there will be another edition of Weatherman Accountability. Stay tuned!

More to the point of this blog, the county Department of Planning and Zoning has updated its Town Center Charrette website. They have even built a Post Charrette Update page with two-page FAQs about relevant issues and an announcement about a "Charrette Focus group," which will be meeting this Wednesday, December 14 at the county office complex (click the above link for more info). Of course, in true bureaucratic fashion, the meetings of this focus group, apparently comprised of 20 various community members, will be open to the public, but only those who can attend during regular working hours--3 pm to be exact.

Of the people, for the people, by the people. Right.
