Farmers Market + restrictions = Berwyn

The new restrictions at the Farmers Market this year will guarantee that it bombs. Customers lining up on the north side of Lake Street to shop on the south side? Won't happen. Customers cannot touch the produce to determine ripeness or damage? Great idea. Doughnuts, but no band nor coffee? Now we're no different from Berwyn's market. 

Cara Pavlicek once again shows her incompetence as village manager. Village President (not Mayor) Taleb commends her for working every day since March 19. Why? There's not that much going on. And she should work every day for her exaggerated salary. It's about time taxpayers get their money's worth from her.
