It’s spelled D-U-C-T, not D-U-C-K, right? Not so fast. As I was researching the origins of this ubiquitous and arguably the most useful product known to humanity, I stumbled upon the most interesting facts. One of which is that, indeed, the product now known as duct tape today started out as “Duck Tape” in World War II. Like some of the adhesives I wrote about last month, the military has been quite instrumental in many of the

In the interest of full disclosure, let it be known that the author of this article is married to the Mayor.
With Mayor Julie Van Domelen en route to Africa, Mayor Pro Tem Kirk Udovich got a chance to bang the gavel at Monday evening’s Board of Trustees (BOT) meeting. It was the first “real” meeting for the newly elected Board, where they actually got to “take care of business.” And, things went smoothly for Udovich, once the emergency flashflood-warning test announcement stopped interrupting his efforts to open the proceedings.
