  • What's wrong: White painted cracks, all over the north end.

    [image-1] Who's responsible? Shaune MacKinlay, City Hall, 490-4000. Remarks: People are reporting lots of the "fix me" white painted cracks, some of which have been this way for months. But this is actually a good news story, says MacKinlay, the city's PR person. Recently the city has acquired some new machinery and so has stepped up the crack repair schedule, which includes a lot of inspectors driving around looking for cracks to fix. Four hundred slabs have been fixed, and 2,000 more are scheduled, says MacKinlay.

  • Scheduled: Jim Guthrie, Heck Yes!

    Lovelywonderful Jim Guthrie is making a pre-Sappy stop at the Paragon on Thursday, July 29. He'll be joined by The Skeletons who look cool as balls. $10 at the door. Next to Aaron Riches' alter egoRoyal City (who Guthrie plays with now), Mr. Guthrie is my favorite Guelphian. His album Now, More Than Ever is one of the most beautiful, perfect things I have ever heard. Listen below (the song is synched with a commerical, which is dumb, so just close your eyes....)
