County Commissioner Joe Briggs commented on the city’s choice not to sign the amended memorandum of understanding concerning the Board of Health (BOH) governing body earlier this week saying it was their choice, but he doesn’t like being out of compliance with the law, after the county meeting on Thursday.

Aubrey Gordon collects vintage diet books. She has amassed almost 100 titles, including the 1973 volume “Slimming Down,” written by Johnny Carson’s sidekick, Ed McMahon. “Slimming Down” — which featured chapter titles like “The Breadstick Conspiracy” and “Two Martinis Into Connecticut” — is the book that began Ms. Gordon’s collection.
