civic responsibilities

Yesterday, I sat on a jury for a traffic citation. Took my embroidery sample along. Court clerk chewed gum the entire morning and read a book while waiting for us to knock on the door. No witnesses to the contrary, we went with a small fine. The business office was festooned with handpainted wooden bunnies. The judge went to a funeral in between cases and we waited again while a replacement for the prosecutor was brought in. A surreal experience.
They had on display in the city hall lobby the architectural drawings of the new medical complex going up nearby. Quite a huge undertaking. The traffic is going to be horrendous once it is completed. I expect traffic lights will replace some of our stop signs. Less city income from traffic violations, more from taxes on the commercial property.
