City Attorney Dan Callaghan
NEEDED $5000 to get an answer from city hall. Read on about this continuing saga …
Alcohol had city council members a bit wobbly as they hashed out the pros and cons of adding Preston Park to the list of parks where beer and wine could to be consumed. The parks where alcohol permits can be issued are all downtown except for Mill Mountain.
The council debate pitted teetotalers against the more alcohol tolerant council members – except for Mayor David Bowers who’s known to partake during Irish heritage celebrations. Bowers, an attorney by day has seen the damage alcohol can inflict in DUI cases. Hence the reasoning for his objection.
That was Monda

Today, OfficeMax announced plans to join with Office Depot to create a stronger, combined global company with a wide array of services and solutions that enable you, our valued MaxPerks customer, to work more efficiently and productively.
The combined company will build on the best of both organizations to give you even more product choices, advanced technology and printing services, and new innovations to help you work better in business and at home every day. By integrating our network of retail stores, direct sales, telesales and online environments, we’ll provide you multiple ways to connect with us.
Over the last six months, OfficeMax has added new technology support, cloud and website services. Recognizing the impact of economic and tax changes to the bottom line, we want to help make every dollar you spend work even harder by providing more everyday MaxPerks and weekly promotion value. We’ve expanded private brand products that offer strong performance at great value. Our commitment is to continue building this value as we serve you.
We expect the merger transaction to close by the end of calendar year 2013, subject to customary closing conditions. Until then, OfficeMax and Office Depot will remain separate companies, and each company will maintain its current rewards program.
