    Dear Mr. Sabatino:

    This email is in response to your verbal and written request for public records received by the City during the Council meeting on June 23, 2015.  On July 17, 2015, the City provided you with a list of law firms in response to your request and indicated that we would provide you the remaining information on or before August 6, 2015.  Government Code Section 6253 subdivision (c), requires that City indicate“the estimated date and time when the records will be made available.”

    We have worked extremely diligently and actively on your request, however, given the high volume, age of the records and location of the records that you are seeking, we must adjust our estimated date of disclosure.  The new estimated date of disclosure is August 24, 2015 at 5 pm. 

    Please contact me if you have any questions.

  • The Tufts Get Going! "Earth Wind & Fire Encore"

    in Entertainment

    9:00 AM Eastern, "The Tufts Get Going!" host Rosanna Tufts:

    "That's the Way of Earth Wind & Fire." Danceable, powerful, elegant: Few groups combined these better than the lush harmonies and bracing brass of Earth Wind and Fire! Remember "Reasons," "Shining Star," "Fantasy," "That's the Way of the World," and their funked-out version of the Beatles' "Got to Get You into my Life?" And how "Boogie Wonderland" formed the backdrop for a jam of dancing penguins in the animated film "Happy Feet?" Take a peek inside the brilliant minds that created all these iconic songs, as Eleanor Wyche and Patsy Anderson interview original members of Earth Wind and Fire.

  • The Tufts Get Going! "Small Budget ... Big Business"

    in Marketing

    9 am Eastern, Wednesdays, "The Tufts Get Going!" host Rosanna Tufts:

    "Small Budget ... Big Business." Does your business ambition exceed your financial capacity? It used to be that the only way you could promote your business was through really expensive gatekeepers (newspaper ads, spots on your local radio/TV stations, and the Yellow Pages -- remember them?) Now, it's easier than ever to get your business message in front of thousands of people, for far less cost. But the options are so many, now, that you have to sort through them all, to determine what makes the most sense for YOU. Frederick Johnson is on hand today to talk about how to Grow a Big Business on a Small Budget -- a talk he will be presenting on a national stage at T.D.Jakes' MegaFest in Dallas!
