MUST TRY - Spasso's Crab Ravioli
I suppose anyone can be a restaurant critic, but I don't have the culinary knowledge to really deconstruct the finer details of exquisite cuisine, nor do i pretend to. Like anyone, I know what I like and that's pretty much my gauge for food comments. So, here's one I think you should try.
|The Best Crab Ravioli I've Ever Had!|
Last week I was heading over to Spasso's for dinner with Kim when someone told me to try the Crab Ravioli. If it wasn't for my indecisiveness towards the menu, I would have gotten any of the many others dishes. I'm glad I didn't. Truthfully, the Crab Ravioli is one of the best dishes I've had in a LONG time, ANYWHERE! Very nice job, Spasso's
Rails to Trails - Aston to Middletown
This is a really cool project that I give a lot of credit to Mike Fusco and his group for their fortitude and endurance over the last 10 years to make this happen. In this week's Town Talk, the Rails to Trails project is moving forward with bids for initial construction going out soon. I wonder what they'll do with the trestle that goes over Pennell Road. That's the only segment of those rails I haven't traveled.
Cats on Franklin Street
I've read a few comments and heard complaints about stray/feral cats on West Jefferson Street. I took a ride down there last week to see what it was all about and didn't come across anything unusual. I don't know what I was expecting, but I didn't see cats strutting around all over the place. That's not to say they aren't there, but if this is a problem, please leave comments that describe the situation. I'll try to get some awareness towards this issue.
Penncrest Football Fundraiser
Congratulation to Penncrest Football for putting on a great fundraiser last night at the Middletown Firehouse. I got to meet Coach Stroup who is a great guy and quite excited about this upcoming year. I had always thought the football field was in great shape and much better than when I played, but like anything that may be outdated too. With many schools going to turf fields(think what the Eagles play on), Penncrest is also hoping to someday have one also. A about a million dollars, we'll need a lot more fundraisers.
Media's Wawa Project
If I said it once, I've said it a 100 times: If anyone has a better idea of what should be built at the site of where the proposed Wawa should be, let's hear it. It's not going to be a hotel and it's not going to be a park, but it will be something. If anyone wants to deal a big box pharmacy over Bob Linn designed Wawa done exclusively for this town, let me know now and perhaps I can save everyone a lot of time and hassle. People on borough council were elected to SOLVE problems and if that includes anticipated traffic issues, then stand-up show LEADERSHIP!
Mayor Bob McMahon, WE WANT OUR MONEY BACK!
|Mayor McMahon - Mis-managing Taxpayers Money|
July 5, 2012We're going on ten months and still nothing. If you remember, this was the same company McMahon was told was investigated and fined by the Florida State Attorney, but he and Council President, Brian Hall proceeded with them anyway. This job never went out to bid to local producers who could have done it for less and would have had it DONE by now.
“McMahon mentioned that the filming will start in August and will be broadcast in the fall.”
