Talk of the Sound Editor: My Christmas Gift

January 03, 2012 - 16:51

If you're a regular reader of Talk of the Sound you may have seen some of my Photo Funnies popping up on the site over the last few months. Further, I manage the calendar and co-host the Talk of the Sound Radio program with managing editor Bob Cox. Thus, if you're up on the TOTS happenings, you may have come across my name and/or username -- my face, however, might still have remained a shrouded mystery: UNTIL NOW!

This Christmas season, I had the opportunity to give a gift that might really lift the spirits of someone in need. On Christmas Day, I sheared off almost 18 inches of hair specifically for the purpose of donating it to make a wig for a child in need. This was the second time I cut my hair for Locks of Love and intend to grow my hair back and do it all over again on Christmas 2014 and encourage anybody else in this unique position to do the same!

Merry Christmas*

Parking Change Where Is It?

January 03, 2012 - 08:49

The city of New Rochelle was to make parking changes today on the downtown street meters and in some downtown lots.The changes were that the meters in the certain lots would increase 100% from 50 to a $1 a hour and the meters on the street would be extended to 12:00am.
Well as of 3:30am Tuesday morning no signs were changed no meters changed no lots changed.
I wonder what happened. Will this loss of revenue effect the budget will Firefighters,Crossing Guards and Dpw workers get threatened that there jobs be cut.Because the city has no money.
Or maybe the city will hire someone else at a salary of $100,000 to tell us that we need retail in our city.
Again this city has failed to notify downtown business owners of the change to the parking rules as they said they would.
Let's wait and see what the city has to say about this one.I would love to hear from the people who read this site.
