E-coli? In OUR water supply? Excuse me.
Goats? How many goats around a crucial drinking water source? Say what.. 450 goats and “1,000 animals in virtually a few months.” (Newburyport Current, Friday, November 24, 2006.)
Definitely a no-brainer. 1,000 animals would probably cause trouble to the water supply for the City of Newburyport, that happens to be on this particular piece of property. Yikes.
The “twins” the aspiring consultants to the Newburyport Political Blog want in the worst way to comment on this one. (Shall we let them?)
The twins, C. G. Cushing and G. C. Cushing of Frog Pond at the Bartlett Mall, believe that anyone having had the pleasure of kicking a kickball from the Kelly School playground into the Bartlett Mall could tell anyone that it is a “gross” experience retrieving such a ball. Yuck.
The twins, who really know zip about ecology (you gotta remember that these are 2 twerpy little frogs) feel that it is obvious, that if you have a lot of frogs in or a lot of animals around a water source, it’s going to be “gross.”

Aspiring Consultants to the Newburyport Political Blog
George Cushing, of Frog Pond at the Bartlett Mall, the true consultant for the Newburyport Political Blog, is rolling his beady little eyes and is somewhat perturbed with moi for even thinking, much less giving the “twins” any sort of input, even if it is inane comments about “gross” water supplies.

Luckily Paul Colby, Newburyport’s Water Operations Superintendent, Mayor John Moak and John Morris, Newburyport’s Public Health Director were on the case ASAP. And according to the Newburyport Current, December 1, 2006, things are much improved (I think) (and the e-coli never made it to the public water taps.)
This is the drinking water for all the 1,300 new folks from Plum Island that are going to be joining us in drinking what those of us originating from New York City (namely me) call the “mayor’s water” (as opposed to bottled water.)
And when I watched the last Newburyport City Council meeting from the comfort of my comfy chair, the hard working Brendan O’Regan, the Director of Public Services, seemed to indicate that the water treatment supply thing, being very old and with a possible add onto, will cost the tax payers mucho money. Prepare ye for another very necessary possible override.
Better figure the whole water supply, water treatment thing into the City’s ongoing, endless fiscal woes. A big “Yikes” on that one.
The more I blog, the more complicated this whole “how in the world are we ever going to pay for everything” gets. Hence my moving from the “left” and sniggling towards the political “center.”
