Silence of the Lanta

Hannibal Lecter has been offered parole on the condition he restrict his diet to Hamilton Street bus riders. Once a month he will be permitted an Asian merchant; on thanksgiving he may have a preselected blogger. Mr. Lector will be micro-chipped and given a new Hamilton Street loft apartment. He will be monitored by the new surveillance cameras. Mayor Pawlowski and Armand Greco will provide more details at a press conference early next week at the new Lanta Terminal.

UPDATE: Hannibal wasn't eating those Asians fast enough, they were forced off Hamilton Street by eminent domain in 2011.

What's happening with Bicentennial Park? Did we miss something?
Also, did you say some time ago that the former PennDOT building next to Queen City Diner is now going to be a car rental headquarters? Currently, lots of expensive renovations taking place.
And finally the parking lot at the new "Scottish" themed bar and restaurant operating in the old Benningan's Saturday night had so many patrons, overflow parking in the Bob Evans. Exciting news for this new business, that's for sure.

Bicentennial Park will remain a baseball field with no games with local kids playing on it. Maybe NO kids if the out-of-town league chooses to move elsewhere.
