The Muddy Cup on State Street inside Proctor's is open until 11 p.m. Beats Starbucks any day.

Forget about going to the diners and greasy spoons in Sch'dy. Many of them aren't even open on the weekends at all.

I am very glad they are moving the bus stop back from the Armory to the Library. The number of near misses from folks turning onto Washington Ave is frightening. I am also happy to hear a mid-block crossing is being installed. There are waaaaay to many people walking down the middle of a 4 lane road not paying attention, hopefully this will give them a safer, faster, path to the other side.
