Today’s the day
American Education Week will be observed today from 3 to 5 p.m. at Kiley School with some impressive guests scheduled. Deputy Commissioner of Education Alan Ingram will be joined by Lovely, Speliotis and Leah Cole.
Clothes horse alert
If you’ve got so many clothes you can’t wear them anymore, there’s a solution. You can donate them to the Peabody Public Schools, thereby getting the schools a rebate from Bay State Textiles, which plans to pick them up. There are drop boxes at each school and at the administrative offices in Kiley Brothers School.
Wanted are clothes, towels, sheets, shoes and household textiles. Some of this will go to “developing countries where demand for secondhand clothing is particularly high,” according to a press release. Some of it becomes wiping and polishing cloth. Some of it could wind up in your next couch. And about 5 percent “is unusable and not fit for recycling.”
You must have spilled something on it.
When TriCity Taxi Service’s Igor Likterov asked the Legal Affairs subcommittee of the City Council to consider increasing the number of taxi licenses from 30 to 45, he got a favorable response. Everyone agreed to recommend the change to the full council.
“One thing,” Likterov added.
“You’ve already got what you want,” warned Chairwoman Anne Manning-Martin. “Things could change.”
