On a Tuesday afternoon, Branch Line, in the Watertown Arsenal, transformed into Mulberry Wine Bar, featuring shareable snacks and American crafted libations with a casual vibe. (Think pet nat from Maine and ros in a can.) High top tables without chairs anchored the center of the space, encouraging patrons to mix and mingle. Savvy industry types were first to arrive, followed by a crowd of neighborhood regulars soon after..
One of the few is me. In my location, only the old “corner” stores selling general goods have them. They are as ancient as me! I can still remember those years when I was a young student staying in a student hostel in New Zealand, I used to hide my tongue cleaner and only used it discretely in the common lavatory when no one was watching! I knew even then, for sure that those Kiwis had never seen a tongue cleaner in their lives and might faint if they ever saw me scraping my tongue with the “nauseating” metal object.
“I still have 3 hours until I get to go home,” you fret to yourself. You succumb yet again to daydreams about your next adventure until your next phone call, but this time, it is from your spouse telling you that the kids will be away at grandma and grandpa’s for the weekend, and that the two of you should plan something. Your mind races.
Stewart and Colbert is where people are turning for humor in the 18 49 demographic. Letterman is about to retire and Craig Ferguson is holding on with his fingernails. It gotten very, very hard to make money at the business of being funny. Also, most jellies can be canned using rather than waterbath. You simply put hot jelly into jar, screw on lids and bands, flip over for five minutes, flip back over and let sit 24hrs.

The business received multiple extensions from the council since then to stay at the site, most recently in January 2015.Shortly after a 2016 Chico City Council ordinance that amended the Chapman Mulberry Neighborhood Plan and allowed the local recycling business to stay on East 20th Street, Move the Junkyard called for a referendum, gathering more than 9,000 signatures, 5,000 of which the county certified in January 2017.Instead of putting it on the ballot, the city sued the group and Move the Junkyard then also took legal action against the city through a petition for a writ of mandate, a court order to a government agency to undo a former action perceived as illegal.The dismissal is the latest significant development in the ongoing litigation between the business, city and Move the Junkyard since January when, in another case involving the parties, a Butte County judge upheld the citizens group referendum on the 2016 City Council ordinance. The business and city have since sought to challenge that decision and the matter is making its way to the 3rd Appellate Court.Herriman said in representing Move the Junkyard and the Northern California Environmental Defense Council, his duty is to represent the public interest, and in this case that meant dismissing the petition, a recommendation his clients agreed with, while allowing the other case to stand on its own merits.was no reason to run up the city or Chico Scrap Metal attorney fees to try the case if the intent was to have an election and let the public try it, Harriman said. Second reason is that I just thought it was in the best interest of the public for the public to have a say.
