Jack Hummel really got one over on us –
In yesterday’s Ben:
When Don Olbrich goes to the annual streets and roads convention in Hawaii, they’ll think he’s an old-timer.
Them: How much experience you got, chief?
Olbrich: Three blizzards in double digits.’’
I am sure that the county workers that Magazzu is firing will be happy to know that Don Olbrich is going to Hawaii on the county dime. Is Hawaii the ONLY place in the world with streets and roads? These sorts of conventions to exotic vacation spots are a travesty and a grand scam on the taxpaying public.
In today’s Ben:
“I am responding to the remark published in the Feb. 16 BEN column regarding my supposed attendance to a convention in Hawaii.
“For the record, there is no streets and roads convention I’m scheduled to attend in Hawaii, or anywhere else.
“I would appreciate you publishing this correction in your next column.’’
— Don Olbrich,
director of public works
Some people actually believed that!
“Streets and road convention in Hawaii’’?
What would a streets and roads convention entail?
The latest asphalt?
New white line paint?
The latest in plow blades?
The latest in ince melters?
It was meant to laud Olbrich for withstanding tremendous pressure in only a few short months on the job.
Good job, D.O.!
