The blitz came to light at the bimonthly meeting of the mayor and council, when Councilman Mike DuPont said he had been besieged with complaints by merchants and restaurateurs over warning letters for signs some of them have had in their windows for decades.

“Many of the restaurants I visited complained bitterly,” said DuPont. “I heard all about it.”

WHERE HAVE I SEEN THIS?

Where12_07

See, kids? This is where having a particular expertise comes in handy.

Retromedia Sound Studios owner John Noll used his specialized knowledge in sound technology to identify last week’s ‘Where‘ as a picture of a loudspeaker atop 1 Broad Street, home of Heritage Liquors (at the corner of East Front Street).

Or maybe John just notices things above street level more than than average redbankgreen reader.

Either way, thanks and congrats to John.

Can you identify this week’s image? Email your guesses to us, please. (And is it just us, or does staring at this photo make you crave an orange Italian ice from Strollo’s? No, that’s not a hint.)
