Mayor Bury Booed at Cinco de Mayo Bash?
Was Mayor Sandra Bury booed last week at a St. Germaine outing? A St. Germaine parishioner let us know that Mayor Sandra Bury attended the parish’s recent Cinco de Mayo festivities. This is what he wrote to us: “Mayor Bury was booed at St. Germaine Cinco de Mayo party like Rodger Goodell booed at the NFL draft. Vorderer brings her around to introduce themselves. Nobody cared. Our table laughed at them. They stopped after the 5th table. There were 40 tables. Lol.” For the non-football fans out there, Roger Goodell is the NFL Commissioner who is relentlessly booed at each and every selection of the first round of the NFL draft. Goodell reportedly told the fans to “bring it on”. No word from the Mayor on whether the event was “amazing”.
Oak Lawn Goes One Way While College Students Go Another on Publishing Newspapers
The Xavierite Newspaper known as the “eyes and ears of St. Xavier students” has ceased publishing its newspaper. After 85 years, the student run operation has decided that the printed newspaper no longer makes any sense. Instead, the students will continue to publish the news online. The move to online publication is in keeping with the newspaper industry although the Village of Oak Lawn is fighting that trend with the decision to publish its own “newspaper”. One Trustee has promised to eat his shoes if the newspaper loses money, which according to virtually every expert in the publishing business, is a certainty unless the village uses creative accounting.
