[0:00] This week’s show is taped at Crompton Collective, a mall of antiques and artisan goods, right off Kelley Square.

[2:16] Palladium saved! (When I told Bruce “Snow Ghost” Russell about this, he said, “Oh yeah. Metal always wins.”

[3:01] Front Street reopened after years of being blocked by a mall.

[5:00] Pulse magazine’s “Ones to Watch” list. As is our annual tradition, we go through the list.

[7:05] Worcester Magazine picked Tornadoes owner Todd Breighner as Person of the Year. Mike thinks this choice was risky and thought-provoking. Chris thinks this was a terrible choice, Mr. Breighner being “the parasitic clown who robbed a bunch of local businesses as he sunk the Tornadoes baseball franchise”.

[9:55] Worcester has a closed coal mine. Also, a door in the City Hall Christmas tree. Much more in the latest Happiness Pony.

[12:02] If you want previews and aftermath news of city government meetings, sign up for our email list.

[15:00] Panhandling. City Council slated to discuss proposed anti-panhandling ordinances next week. With luck, this’ll be the first public forum where elected officials address, rather than avoid, the controversial parts.
