The Gold Seal

In TechnicolorGroundhog Day was cancelled in Lake County. Pistakee Phil is still waiting for a road crew to plow the snow out of his groundhog hole.

Haha j/k.

Lake County's roads are making news, however. The Daily Herald says the Lake County Department of Transportation is ...
requesting $540,000 in motor fuel tax funds be spent in hopes of preserving two segments of road before more extensive repairs are needed. The technique is called "microsurfacing" and is being targeted for about three total miles in northern Lake County: Deep Lake Road from Route 173 to the Wisconsin state line and North Avenue from Deep Lake Road to the state line.
Lake County considers new technique to preserve pavement
The technique is similar to sealcoating your driveway. The difference being you don't end up tracking tar all over your house.

In related news, county planners made a surprise announcement: the Route 53 Extension will be paved with gold. One source told your LakeCountyEye that the price of gold is at a five-year low. "If we buy now," he said, "we just wait for the next gold-market bubble, and the Route 53 Extension pays for itself."

That's all your LakeCountyEye has. No phony goldbricking here. Dude.
