Farewell Gordon Stone.
If I had a nickel for every evening I was delighted by his playing at Hunts on Main Street in Burlington, I’d be wealthy.
He elevated every group he played in.

Dave's Corner 💭
As a tax payer without school-age children, I find it frustrating that I do not have access to the track at the high school for running laps. In other parts of the country where I have lived, outdoor public school athletic facilities are accessible to the whole community. With the padlocks and security cameras, the Burlington High School track feels like a prison yard. I am sure there is some security justification, but I wonder why it exists in Burlington but not the numerous other communities I've lived in.

- Transportation and Parking Improvement Request
The crosswalk at the corner of St Paul & Kilburn is nearly faded away. Cars often don't know that there is even a crosswalk and it has become dangerous to try and cross there. I would love to see this repainted so that we can cross more safely.

- Traffic Signal Problems
At the intersection of the East Ave entrance and Main St, the crossing signal call buttons for the Main St crossing (both on the East Ave sidewalk, and on the median) seem to be non-functional. The East Ave sidewalk call button gives an audio response when pushed, but will not cause the Main St lights to turn red at the next cycle or enable the crossing signal if cars are waiting on East Terrace. The call button on the median appears to be stuck, and does not depress or give a response when pushed. The call button on the East Terrace side is functional.
