The Traffic Guy hears ...
… that the City is refunding about $5,000 in parking ticket fees to many people who received parking tickets on Sheridan Square in the past three years.

The check will serve as an apology.

Hooked on Fishing: The Wind and the Rain and the Fish
The wind and the rain are both having major effects on fall fishing, but one is a good effect and the other is not. The rain is the bad guy in this scenario.

The sudden temperature rise took water temps up to summer levels again just after the fish had started to move into fall transition patterns. The large rainfalls have swollen all our rivers and made them muddy messes. The rain has also created high water on a number of our area lakes forcing “No Wake” warnings on Lake Geneva, Lake Delavan and high water warnings on the Chain of Lakes.
