The minor disagreement over the ultimate funding of the proposed Memorial baseball palace and surrounding areas will probably be resolved warmly by the “Love and Roses” date of February 14, 2024.

This will just be a current follow up to a March 17, 2023, breaking news article in this publication wherein the former car dealer king in Choo Choo City expressed his strong feeling for his legacy contemporary on the high pedestals of Hamilton County leadership as follows:

“We get along fine,” he said. “I enjoy his youth and enthusiasm and I think he enjoys my dad jokes.”

In the event the slight spat is not resolved by February 20, 2024 another kiss and makeup session is scheduled by the East Brainerd Chamber of Commerce at WTCI/PBS Station from 11am-1pm. The localized arm of the neutral big brother group (CACC) will lend their leader and CEO as moderator (CW).

It is rumored that CW was a talented slow pitch softball hurler in his younger days so any viewer should expect a lot of soft lobs.

(His hurling performance will be hard to match that of my old friend, GG, on the previous daily channel 301 public service announcements non-political program.)

PS: It is appropriate that one of the sponsors is a composting company.
