Pem: Here's where you can do a little investigative reporting. Breakdown that $5.6 million increase in the grand list to: How much is from the increase in the completed Hotel; how much is related to new building (and # of units of new builds); and how much is in improvements to existing buildings. Then compare the growth to 5 years ago and 10 years ago (before the recession). The Building Dept folks should have that info on the tip of their tongues. I can hardly wait for 2016-2017 for that drop in debt service. I hope we haven't already spent it, but I suspect the spending vultures are circling already.

Boo to the bird park. Yay to the communication and shelter improvements. Though it would be nice if we'd stop getting hit with hurricane's more often than Florida.

Barbara, if you want to continue griping about the annual town meeting coverage do it here! If you want to express support for Cliff McNeely and his family, do it on the other story. Geeeeeez. And sorry if I sound bitter! I am not! I am cranky!! You know why?!?!?! Because I still haven't eaten a proper meal today! Barbara, for you, I will put off doing so until after the annual town meeting story is done. So, my apologies, you are going to have to put up with my crankiness until then.

Pem: I didn't make the "bitter" comment. I prefer the adjective "frazzled" So eat, sleep, write refreshed.

Yes! That would be accurate. Frizzled, frazzled ... and feeling much better after having had some dinner. ATM story posted on the front page.
