Council conflict over Jones contract

In a split vote, the Joliet City Council approved an agreement this week with GovTemps USA to allow Steve Jones to continue working as interim city manager until a full-time replacement is hired. The deal works under the assumption that one-month extensions are automatically granted so long as the permanent city manager position remains unfilled.

2019 Mazda MX-5 RF

Thirty years. That’s how long the Mazda MX-5 has been around. It was a hit from day one and now it has reached icon status. When Mazda tried to change the name from Miata to MX-5 diehard fans refused to go along. Many people still call it Miata, so do I. But in the interest of journalistic accuracy I’ll use MX-5 in this space. What made the MX-5 so popular was the fact that it was a roadster and over the years Mazda has had the good sense to keep it a roadster in the best British tradition of Triumph and MG. What that means is a two-seat lightweight ragtop with a great power to weight ratio. And they’ve added a hardtop convertible for those who want to drive in cooler weather. I had the hardtop and driving it was still a lot of fun. I had the six speed manual; there is a six-speed automatic. I could and did skirt through traffic. The car had great acceleration and maneuverability; it was not overtly fast but it was awfully quick. Interestingly enough I never felt like I was in a small car until I got out of the MX-5. Still, the interior was not cramped. Shifting was easy. Other than the windows, everything was manual: the seats and the tilt telescoping steering wheel. Outside noise got in but somehow it wasn’t road noise. The sport suspension was firm but not harsh. Cornering was great, the brakes were solid and the sight lines were good. Never did I feel overwhelmed or undersized by other vehicles. At first I thought the steering wheel could have been a little thicker. But after a day or so I found it to be just the right size. This is the fourth generation of the car and what they have done is bring it into the 21stCentury from a connectivity standpoint. It now has USB jacks and it can stream and it has satellite radio amongst other things including Bluetooth and a navigation system. It even had heated seats. Designers pinched the hood and grille and they now swoop down to meant the front fascia. They did the same thing in the rear. They added LED headlights and LED daytime running lights. They tightened the sheet metal and overall gave the MX-5 a much more contemporary look.
