Message from the Mayor

If you've noticed that a large, concrete structure has popped up in Midway Station in the last couple of weeks, your eyes do not deceive you. That is the much-often mentioned Lakeshore Learning Materials distribution center beginning to take shape. The company is on target to open on Nov. 3 and will begin hiring in August or September. They will eventually employ at least 262 full-time workers and another 140 seasonal workers annually. I can't wait to hear about the Midwayans that are hired on out there. On April 22, the Midway Parks Board and volunteers will be planting 300 trees in Walter Bradley Park from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. Half of the trees are pink dogwoods that will line the perimeter of the park along Newton and Dudley streets and also along the Northside Drive entrance. I'm willing to bet that, in time, many Midwayans will look forward to their blossoming every spring. If you'd like to help plant trees on the 22nd, contact park manager John Holloway at or leave a number for him at City Hall and I'll make sure to get it to him. As mayor, I often deal with subgrade failure in roads, but as a father, I can't believe that it took six months before I had to deal with subgrade diaper failure in an infant. The incident occurred on a Tuesday at approximately 5:45 p.m. at the Midway Presbyterian Church. The two subjects made a beeline for the home base, where the laundry was started and a bath was had by mayor and son. I've recovered from the incident and am on the lookout for more subgrade diaper failure in the future.
