Is it a "nightmare"? No, merely a challenge. "The nice thing about Northport," Ben Wetherbee remarked this morning when he came in for a browse and a visit, "is that you can walk anywhere in town you need to get." Older, more jaded voices ask, "How long is this going to go on?" Well, it just started on Waukazoo Street, and it seems to be moving along pretty fast, as far as I can see. We should definitely have downtown repaved and easy to navigate by the time summer visitors arrive. For now, anyone brave enough to come this week, park around the corner and WALK to Dog Ears Books is welcome to a 10% discount. Just say you read it on "Books in Northport." Post beneath this one is my literary offering for the day--two postings for the price of one.
