Klaatu barada nikto

Go to Phoenixville's homepage.

Click on "calendar."

Watch February's calendar appear.

Remind yourself that it's March 20th.

I can't wait for the saucer to land in Reeves Park.

Gort, where are you now that we need you?

Ignorance is no excuse

Willful ignorance is even less of an excuse.

Other than Councilman Buckwalter, who has attended numerous courses and has been designated as a Certified Borough Official, have any of the present Council Members, either newly-elected or incumbent, ever taken any of the courses to inform themselves about their responsibilities as Borough officials?

For $150 and two days of their precious time, Council Members could have taken the "Newly Elected Borough Officials" course, which was offered on February 15th and 16th in Media or March 7th and 8th in Fort Washington.

Ask your Council Member what he has done to learn about what he ought to be doing.

Ask your Council Member exactly how much longer he intends to remain willfully ignorant about the job to which you elected him.

Give us a reason. . . how about a good reason

It's March 16th. The Borough's now-official website still doesn't carry a single set of minutes for this year.

There must certainly be a reason.

The problem is that there's no good reason.

Why should Phoenixville tolerate more government in secret?

There is, however, a link to a really important piece of government business: an Easter egg hunt.
