City sends woman a $4,700 water bill as an early Christmas present Lest you think the city doesn’t have a heart, “The city agreed to reduce the bill from $4,000 to $1,000, which is still a big jump from Baylous’ $10 a month bill.”

City’s pension plans lose $1.9 billion in value But, the experts assure that there’s nothing to worry about.

Ooooo, a Bob Stein-sighting!
