Water Treatment Plant No. 4, that is, as we coalesce the various and sundry developments and lawsuits in the WTP4 saga. Water under the bridge, this ain't.

Next up, a rundown of what's happening with City Council this week, including tweaks to the city's historic zoning process. Lastly, we break down the lessening disparity between crack and powder cocaine sentencing, and bid a fond farewell (we mean it this time!) to judge Sharon Keller. As always, Jordan Smith and Wells Dunbar are banging the gavel.
