Going round and round

So Glens Falls Mayor-elect Akins is reconsidering the roundabout at the five-way intersection. He's probably one of those people who avoids the intersection by taking side streets. That might get you around faster, but it's not exactly the way to promote new businesses downtown. Before Mr. Akins makes up his mind, he should try to drive through the five-way at 4:30 p.m. on any weekday, or sit there at 3 a.m. on any night waiting for the light to turn.
