The NFL certainly has been going all out with their cracking down on people for various things. Dwyer and Michaels are apparently unable to use the "SB" words outside of a news-type atmosphere for fear of angering the NFL. I guess this is why baseball is the best sport.
Here's a Sunday morning assortment of random stuff:
-A multi-car hit and run accident on the Centennial Bridge, a disturbance at Genesis East, a man who had to be extricated from his wrecked vehicle on W. 6th, various domestic problems, and the one that will make the news, a stabbing/attempted murder of a woman in Goose Creek at about 5:15 this morning. You wouldn't guess that it was 7 below zero last night by how busy the cops were. The night before I heard a police call for kids egging cars. It was around zero at that point! Come on folks, save your tomfoolery for summer like normal lowlifes.
-Speaking of law enforcement, tomorrow is the deadline if you want to apply for one of the toughest and least recognized jobs in the field: the police dispatcher. Its a county dispatcher, but that doesn't make the job much easier. Also, I don't understand why Scott County only leaves its job openings on its website for a matter of days. I find it humorous that both the "New listing!" icon and the "Expires soon!" icon are both present on the dispatcher listing. I guess you'd better not be out of town when the job you want is taking applications. It doesn't seem like the best way to get a large pool of applicants though. But what do I know, its not like I have a degree in this...
-Did anyone make it to the Figge, Symphony, or RME events last night? Knowing that I'd be out during the cold nights this weekend, I chose to stay in yesterday afternoon. Of course the negative folks will jump all over low attendance to prove their favorite thing, failure. We wouldn't want to look at all the circumstances, such as weather, or anything.
-The Crescent Warehouse District website has added more content, including all the floorplans for the Crescent Macaroni and Waterloo Mills buildings, in addition to the 4th Street Lofts building. Even my floorplan is up there... Maybe some of you will notice that many of the market-rate rents exceed $1000 a month before saying how we all get cheap rents.
-Verizon rolls out high-speed network to QC -QCTimes
I meant to say something about this back on Thursday when the article was in the paper. What in the world is the Times doing reporting this now? I have Verizon, and EV-DO has been working here since sometime in November or December. Apparently either Verizon just finally got around to announcing it, or the QCT finally got around to reporting it. I guess I should have reported it back when I first noticed.
-I hope to be posting some renderings soon of what the new police station will look like, because I'm not sure if those of you complaining about it already realize what it will look like when its done. Or maybe you do and you're just against it like everything else.
-I'm snarky enough this morning to change my name to SnarkyGuy...
