If nothing else, it dispels the lies and rumors of the actual calls. there is nothing like the truth.
It's the transcripts not the audio recordings. They would release the transcripts sooner or later anyway, it's the law.
,.. which left them in the Red. Yet still black had and has a negative connotation,
Nixon (100 years later?) Closed the gold window. Allowing the price to float. Prior to that the U.S. stabilized the spot price at $35 / oz. A similar situation arose in the late 70's or early 80's with silver when 2 brothers thought they could corner the silver market. As the price was driven up I saw lines of people down at Sam Sloat's selling family heirlooms of sterling and silver-plate to make a buck. The stuff went to melt, along with coins. Those coins today are semi-rare in date not due to their extrinsic value but there intrinsic value.
FYI there is more gold in suspension in the worlds oceans than has ever been mined. The price of gold is still artificial.
But this is about encouraging people to go out and shop for an upcoming holiday(s). Black is a rather glooming moniker View Comment
Actually I don't understand why the marketing pro's decided on ' black'. After all it's not always the best part of an idiom. black clouds, black sheep, black plague, black mark(on ones soul), black death, black rain, I'm sure there are plenty others. Not exactly an uplifting, exciting enthusiastic expression to get people in the mood for the start of something. View Comment
Pit bulls, which make up 5 percent of the country’s dog population, were responsible for 23 — or 61 percent — of the deaths, the group reports. Half of those killed were children 8 or younger. View Comment
I think geography has a part to be played but probably not to the extent some people think.
I have received many of the newer fluorescent bulbs from them for free.
An energy audit for free plus at that time they did a lot of caulking and gave me about 25 foam discs to put behind outlets and switches and wrapper my electric hot water heater for me,( as well as plastic for windows that you apply with a hair dryer, all free ).. something that would have cost $20 from Rickels.
Sign up for one of your local utility company sites they have offerings from time to time. Hand out bulbs at Fair's and Home Shows, recommend energy efficient appliances and their operating costs as well CL & P was selling light fixtures for inside and out a few years ago. They do have many programs for people that have low income. If you add $1 to your bill they pool it in a fund for people that cannot meet their electric / gas bills in winter.

How ridiculous. As a neighboring citizen I can't report a light out? When the police report a light out, do they know who to report it to? The city must. Dimness! It would be brighter with any working bulb. I'm sure there is a book that states what size bulb to use. If the city decides on brighter illumination, it wouldn't cost anymore to upgrade to the new request as bulbs are blown. I hope the city requests a refund for overpayment of undelivered services. It should be, that anybody that notices a light out could report it and get a thank you and it gets logged on to a work order.
How many suits does it take to screw in a light bulb?
Two years, that's just unreal.
If the city requests additional lighting, how will that work when the people responsible for the existing lights can't keep up! View Comment
I hope this is resolved safely and with great dispatch. How many time are Officials going to post ' this is not a test '? People become complacent when they don't see the qualifier with each urgent message. On 911, there was never a red banner, streaming any type of needed information at the bottom of the TV screens where I worked. Without that, the first 20 minutes looked like a long trailer for a movie. Only until people began receiving cell phone calls did it become a reality for them View Comment
