I commend the city's Department of Streets and Parks for sustained prompt, efficient and courteous service over the last year. They've never failed to haul away huge piles of tree branches and other brush
Aristotle defined happiness as "activity in accordance with excellence." Billtown's street cleaners must be very happy people, indeed. Local government agencies, being closest to the people, are the most efficient organs of the state. I'm also impressed by our local police department. Military retirees might well rank them up there with the Navy Seals or Army Rangers in protecting Americans.
