Wow, spending my money wisely once again!!! So if this newspaper's website was anywhere near up to date as the Record Journal's website, these readers here would know that our lovely town officials bought the old MyBar building, took bids to resell it, 2 bids came in lower, and they're probably going to sell it at a loss!!! Brain surgery at it's best. And of the two bids, Mr. Florian's was the lowest, and so sure, let's sell it to him, he'll own yet more of downtown Southington and we will call it Florington soon. Oh well, once our politician's broke up Ma Bell, and they have let that recreate itself again. So in a week and a half we have to vote yet once again if we want to fund a Town Hall renovation again, like they're spending money so wisely now, let's give 'em more!!! So let's talk about how they are ruining West Street also, try and get out of a side street since "Tarjee" opened up, and oh yeah, like we need another home improvement center...oh yes we do, Mr. Florian's gonna need more supplis!!! Gotta get out of here soon, it's just not the country life anymore here.

Off of Summer Street is East Summer Street and it is out behind there. Another way to look at it is straight out behind the Chinese restaurant. Been there for a lot of years, NOW it is considered dangerous??? Wonder who they're gonna sell that land to???

I thought Goat Island was on the other side of the street? I was always told it was behind where F&F is now? And the little alley way between the package store and the littke market was the access road to get back there?
