Monday’s open line

The Boomtown Rats didn’t like Mondays, but they’re as good as any other days for some common-sense talk. Or flights of fancy. Or anything in between. Keep in mind a few of the things going on today. Henderson officials are meeting with The Ferguson Group, the city’s D.C. lobbying firm, at noon at the Municipal Building, and we hope the talk includes a water reality check. Mayor Clem Seifert has a 3 p.m. meeting with state Department of Transportation representatives; the city’s contract for maintenance of state roads and the much-discussed Chavasse Avenue rail crossing could be discussed. On a less contentious note, the Little Miss Kerr Lake pageant is raising some money with a fish sale for $6 per plate at 220 Seafood from 4 to 7 p.m. Now it’s up to you to fill our virtual plate with the topics of your choice.
