Jill’s chitchat: The Mayor is caught kissing Misty Saunders

Mayor Cord Bennett’s door keeps revolving and the current woman through his door is Misty Saunders, a Lily of Lincoln Falls member who is well-known for her break-up pumpkin loaf.

The couple was seen together at the Coffee Carafe chatting and laughing over cafe lattes. As they left, the mayor was seen leaning in for a kiss. The Coffee Carafe is not Mayor Bennett’s typical location for a date. He usually prefers taking his dates into Richmond.

Misty Saunders also isn’t his usual type. Everyone knows the mayor prefers blondes and Misty Saunders has copper red hair. Is he expanding his repertoire?

Since he’s taking a break from his type, I wonder if this relationship might be more permanent. Oh wait, I forgot who I was talking about. The mayor does temporary, not permanent.

This whole relationship has me confused and I’m left with many questions that I hope will be answered in coming weeks, if the relationship lasts that long. With the mayor’s track record, I have a feeling that Misty Saunders will soon be baking her break-up pumpkin loaf for herself.

Jill’s chichat: An interview with Mayor Cord Bennett

Jill: I have a special guest this week. Mayor Cord Bennett has agreed to join me. I hear you have an announcement to make and it can’t wait until the next quarterly town meeting.

Mayor Bennett: This is something that is going to make many of the citizens of Lincoln Falls happy. We’ve needed it for awhile and I’m pleased to announce that we are finally moving forward with the bike trail. We’ve hired a company that will add a bike lane to Main Street. That lane will then turn off onto a paved path that will go around the lake.

Jill: A bike trail? That’s your news?

Mayor Bennett: Yes. Isn’t it great? I’ve received numerous requests for a bike trail and, at one point, I received a petition from 100 residents.

Jill: Those residents will be thrilled.

Mayor Bennett: It’s perfect for everyone. Parents can take the kids’ bikes to the lake and let them ride. For the physically fit and more adventurous, a separate path will split off from the lake and go up the hill.

Jill: Isn’t that a bit steep?

Mayor Bennett: It is, which is why I said it’s for the physically fit. We don’t want someone to have a heart attack.

Jill: Right. I’m glad you decided to come in for the interview today. Now, for something a bit more juicy. Who are you currently dating?

Mayor Bennett: No one.

Jill: I don’t believe you. You’re always dating someone.

Mayor Bennett: It’s none of your business. I didn’t come in to discuss my private life.

Jill: My readers want to know. Are you still dating triplets?

Mayor Bennett: I’ve never dated triplets.

Jill: That’s not what my source tells me.

Mayor Bennett: Your source is lying. I’m done. You got your interview.

Jill: Cord . . . wait.

Mayor Bennett: Goodbye.

Jill: Well, that was awkward. Congratulations to the residents who fought for the bike trail.

See you next week!

Jill’s chitchat: 4th of July in Lincoln Falls

The 4th of July is Tuesday and there are a number of events in Lincoln Falls that you won’t want to miss.

At 11 a.m., you’ll want to be on Main Street to see the annual 4th of July parade. Mayor Cord Bennett will be on top of the American flag float. Will he be flying solo or will he be with the latest flavor of the month?

After the parade, the Lilies of Lincoln Falls are hosting the annual picnic at the lake. Mrs. Scarlett Flynn is looking for volunteers. She claims she has a list of all of the citizens of Lincoln Falls and will know if you don’t volunteer and payback is a…well, you can finish that one.

Stick around after the picnic for the pig and goat races. If you’re daring, join the annual leech contest. Remember the last person standing wins. How many leeches will you tolerate before you pass out? Because Huck Lucas lost too much blood last year, two ambulances will be on the grounds.

The day will end with fireworks at 9:30 p.m. Crazy Ed will be on his barge for what he promises will be the best fireworks show ever and he promises no explosions like the last couple of years.

See you at the festivities and I’ll be back next week!
