Looking forward to my 1st Spinners game of the year, Wednesday night with my daughter.
Ulowell ran a Kayak program on the River and a BIG shout out to the staff who were great with the kids and my 11 year old daughter will be kayaking and maybe rowing because of her time at that program.
Speaking of Ulowell don’t forget . “A Conversation with Stephen King” – set for Friday, Dec. 7 at 7:30 p.m. at the Arena, tickets are on sale now.
3 Weeks between Council meetings seems like a nice break, with the “Summer” schedule it doesn’t appear a huge need for weekly meetings, why not go back to the twice a month model and schedule the “Special Meetings” (Auditor, Clerk and Manager reviews) on the off weeks?
Thursday August 16th, all eyes will be on the Greater Lowell Tech. School Committee meeting to see if Mike Lenzi resigns!
The Lowell School Committee has been out of the limelight and appears to be working well with the Superintendent. Sometimes No news is in fact good news.
Where is that State Inspector Generals Report on the LHA that was supposed to be out in July?
I have 3 questions ready for tomorrow’s night’s City Manager’s Roundtable reviewing his past 6 years. Wonder if I’ll get to ask all 3 in the 90 minutes we have?
Thanks to George and John for letting me barge in and discuss the Taupier /Gitschier Post this morning on City Life.

Over here in Centralville / Dracut area we have had 3 Frozen Yogurt Shops Open in the past 2-3 weeks. My wife, daughter and I have tried all 3 and here’s our combined thoughts:
FROZURT in the Sunrise Plaza next to SAL”s is our favorite of the 3. Flavors taste the best and the toppings are good (though no Hot Fudge) and the seating and atmosphere are enjoyable.
ALL MIXED UP is the best place to hang, nice and bright with much color but the flavors aren’t has strong as Frozurt. The toppings are great (they have Hot Fudge) and fresh and if they can get the frozen yogurt to have just a little more flavor then they would be my #1.
Both Frozurt and All Mixed Up have plenty of Parking.
BerryRich is in the strip Mall next to the Sunrise Shopping Center. It is the smallest of the 3 and Parking along with getting in and out isn’t always easy. They have plenty of flavors but aside from the Banana which my wife loved, they don’t burst with flavor. The room is small but bright and the topping are good.
