I’ve put up a couple of items on the Virtual Assignment Desk for the coming weeks. I am going to the Council meeting, but won’t be able to make the inauguration. I’m also thinking of keeping a scorecard of important Council votes for the next couple of years that could be spun into a voting guide, so I welcome any thoughts about what might constitute ‘important’ votes.
Dee Wells posted some thoughts from Virginia Ryan on Worcester retirees’ increased Medicare costs.
Bill discusses more rumors of Best Buy’s impending move here and here, with Sam’s Club thrown in for good measure. (Also, Worcester compared to the usual suspects here and here.) More rumors about the former ShBooms site from Paulie.
Daily Worcesteria (Jeremy) updated his pictures of North Lake Ave to show where it’s wearing away.
Cumberland Farms has an updated logo.
I would love to see more people blogging, especially about topics and events that the news media doesn’t cover. (Yes, Emily, I’m talking to you!) So, if you’re on the fence about whether to start a blog, consider taking an event from the Virtual Assignment Desk (or something from this wonderful list) and writing about it. Be sure to contact Jeff so that you can be included in the Worcester Blogroll.
