I know it's good news. Can't help but feel like sand castles on the beach.
In a second issue on Monday, the council voted 5-2 to ban city purchase and use of a class of insecticides called neonicotinoids, which are suspected of harming honeybees. The ban does not apply to private use.
The practical effect of this is about zero, unless you count headlines.The measure does not affect the parks department, which is governed by the Park Board. However, the parks director told council members that neonicotinoids are not used in city parks, council members said.
Welcome to democracy.Another political decision not backed by research. A little tired of these knee-jerk reactions.
