The clocks advance one hour and Phil is taking a well deserved vacation. I will be pinch hitting, Monday-Friday, with Chris McCarthy similarly hustling the bases during my shift. Too bad the weather ain't on our side!

I come endowed with decaf green tea, oatmeal and the percolating pleasure of interviewing all six Ward 3 New Bedford City Council candidates, 3/13-17. I wonder how each would have decided Thursday's 5-5 tie vote? There's an eye and an ear opener. 

Monday 8:30: Guy LaRock; 9:00: Bethany Fauteux

Tuesday 8:30: Kathy Dehner

Wednesday 8:30: Mark Zajac

Thursday 8:30: Jill Marie Ussach

Friday 8:30: Hugh Dunn

Who needs sleep with the candidates, green tea and me? Remember to set your clock one hour ahead, for 6:00 AM [EDT]. Brian in for Phil.
