Good morning, Roy Kelley that's a wise decision made by the people of Rockville.... every town/city across the country should establish that rule as gospel.

Roy,  good blog! Keep it up. Blogging needs to keep Google happy so that you show up high, page 1, in Google's search engine rankings. Consistency is critical for SEO success.

This is good news, Roy.  New York City is doing the same.  I hope other locations will follow.

That is quite the impact on just one area, Roy. Have not heard what, if anything, is happening in my area in this regard.

Wow Roy, that is hard to believe for restaurants, guess they have to go back to wraping there food in foil to stay warm.

Good to hear they are taking steps to get rid of this nasty product.  I'm sure the food industry will find better alternatives. Funny how that happens, when we have no choice. Ha.

Drivers, please remember to allow at least 3 feet when passing a cyclist. Bicyclists also must follow all the rules of the road when riding in traffic. Always be on the lookout for one another.
