Tough neighborhood. Man shoots ten-year-old for ringing doorbell, running away. I’m pretty sure that the statute of limitations has expired on this so I’ll confess that I might have played such a prank back in 1963. But that was Riverside.

38 Locust Road, on our western border, was built in 1995 and placed on the market in 1996 for $2.950. It didn’t sell so the builder/owners stayed there and in 2007 tried again at $5.2 million. Four years later, they’re down to $3.195 – I suspect that with a little negotiating you can get that 1996 price.
STRATFORD — If you’ve retired from the town in the last five years, you are likely earning a pension that is greater than or nearly equal to your former salary.
Among the 71 town employees who retired between 2006 and January 2011 and for whom human resources officials provided data, more than half are earning more or nearly the same amount of money in retirement than they did from their former base pay. Pensions exceed former salaries for 74 percent of the top-earning pensioners in this camp.
Moody’s Investors Service last week downgraded the town’s bond rating, citing a $2 million operating deficit, low revenues, high expenditures, a weakened grand list and a failing pension fund.
Stratford’s top-earning pensioner is Mark DeLieto, a former police captain who left the department in 2008 after 27 years on the force. DeLieto was 54 when he retired with a $134,525 pension — nearly 160 percent of his former salary.
If he lives to 75, the average life expectancy for a white male in this country, DeLieto’s $11,000 per month pension will cost taxpayers $2.8 million.
New York says bad comments are okay, but I’m trying to stay away from them. Still, aren’t they fun?
This Dandy Drive home asked $1.425 May 18th and sold via bidding war for $1,455,729 13 days later. The winners of these bidding wars haven’t done well over the years but perhaps this time is different.
Nothing I can see on the list justifying burning gasoline on. Almost all retreads, the rest are overpriced, with the exception of 5 Jofran, which I saw, and liked, this weekend.
Woman offers just $1,000 to knock off the father of her illegitimate baby. Found a taker, too. I’m pretty sure the going price used to be ten K.
Germany opens its nude hiking trails for the season. I personally have never seen the attraction of hiking in clammy clothing but aside from some very remote, distant routes, I bow to local custom.
UPDATE: lest we forget, Mr. Weiner on protecting children from sex on the Internet.
