Rest easy, Leslie! You were one cool local cat!


Well here comes the stop lights, crosswalks, flashing signs etc etc on Broad. Personally, I’m tired of traffic taking a back seat to pedestrians making bad choices!


I hate to break it to you, but a lighted crosswalk has been under construction at approximately the location of this fatality on Broad Street for several weeks already.
