For the last 3 days, Community Matters has taken a backseat to a family event. Our only child, Lyndsey was married this weekend. Graduating from the Cleveland Clinic Medical School in 2 weeks in Cleveland, she married a young attorney from Seattle, Washington on Saturday at the DuPortail House. By the first of June, Lyndsey and James will be moving to Chicago for the start of her residency at U of Chicago Medical Center. (BTW, if anyone has contacts for a young attorney in Chicago, please pass them on to me — it would be much appreciated. James is taking the Illinois Bar at the end of July and will then be looking for a job.)
Between the Friday afternoon Bridal Garden Party, Rehearsal Dinner, evening wedding on Saturday night and a Wedding Brunch on Sunday at our house, it was a whirlwind of activity this weekend. With an out-of-state bride and groom, all wedding events and details, including making truffles fell to me! With the stress of the wedding beginning to subside, I’m starting to pick-up the pieces on other things, including Community Matters.
There is a Board of Supervisors Meeting tonight at 7:30 PM; here is the agenda. Although the agenda appears to be brief, we know from past experience that the discussion during ‘New Matters’ can often be the most noteworthy and compelling. Recalling the last supervisors meeting, I would suggest that certain Board members might want to try a different, more conciliatory approach towards citizens and their questions. I heard through the grapevine that the chairman would not be attending tonight’s meeting. If that is the case, vice chairman Paul Olson will preside over the meeting. This in itself could prove very interesting . . . !
