Signs of the Times

I saw my first Mike Kennedy yard sign yesterday as my wife and I were walking on the Dike Road shortly before sunset — on Denny and Cathy Davis place. It was blue and gold, like my old Gridley High Bulldog colors. If those colors do for Mike what they did for the Bulldogs, he’s in for a long Election Night. We won 3 or 4 varsity football games during my four years at good old Gridley. I’m glad I played baseball rather than football. At least we won a few baseball games. Around the corner, Mary Souza had a coupla Fort Grounds yard signs up — one at Chip Althen’s (Ironwood Athletic Club), I believe. Then, Dan Yake, the third wannabe running for Councilman Ben Wolfinger’s post, has staked out the coveted corner at the three-way stop on Lincoln Street. Meanwhile, former councilman Chris Copstead was telling everyone who’d listen last week at City Hall that, contrary to rumors, he won’t be running for the spot this year. Stay tuned.
