Editor’s note: At press time, The Daily News learned a proposal to construct two silos on the riverfront was withdrawn from the Board of Adjustment agenda.

11. Defining the Basics: Bike Lane Expansion -

Our current administration’s platform desires to be brilliant at the basics, but what is the definition of basic?

12. Overcoming Opioids: The Quest for Less-Addictive Drugs -

The “about” part is significant since those kinds of statistics are more carefully hidden than proudly claimed.
