1 HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! Why not prove your love by mashing your face into someone else’s for a couple of days?
2 JOE COUTURE ON THE FIRING OF PLANNING DIRECTOR BOB BJERKE Good article. Go read it. That’s an order. And also keep in mind this story isn’t over until we see evidence that the city isn’t suddenly changing its development direction, which we have been cautiously positive with some concerns about, to something completely insane. Prairie dog’s City Hall team remains on red alert. Shields are up, phasers charged, photon torpedoes are armed but hailing frequencies are open. Oh my god I’m such a nerd.
3 APPARENTLY EVERYTHING IS NOT QUITE 100 PER CENT FIXED IN THE MIDDLE EAST Protests, protests, protests!
4 RONALDO HANGS UP THE CLEATS The soccer, sorry FOOTBALL legend calls it a career. And what a career.
