Q: We are considering converting our (married) daughter's bedroom into a walk-in closet — a lifelong dream of mine, probably leftover from reading movie magazines as a girl. Anyway, I want it to be as glamorous as possible without spending a fortune on a carpenter. Did you once write about using kitchen cabinets out of the kitchen? Would that work here?
A: The answer is yes to both of your questions.

The meeting started at 8:32 PM and in a departure from the regular order of business, Mayor Tedesco led off with a discussion of the reason the meeting was so late in starting. It seems that there was supposed to be a budget proposal, but Tedesco claimed that at the last minute, items were injected into the budget plans that forced the delay that evening and that the budget proposal would be held at a separate meeting on Tuesday, August 25th at the Borough Hall.
