City Councilor Michael McGonagle's purchase of the former Seafood Etc. building on Amesbury Road doesn't show up on the city assessor's office online data base.
The reason is, according to the assessor's office, property transactions taking place after Jan. 1 don't get updated until the following Jan. 1, due to the city's billing cycle.
However the information is available at the assessor's office. It shows that McGonagle, under Mac&D Realty LLC, purchased the building on March 29 for $605,000.
Some friends and relatives of McGonagle plan a retail pot shop for the property.
Landmark sign down
The old green and white Magnavox sign that for decades drew attention to the Haverhill TV and Appliance store on Washington Street was recently taken down.
Word is the store's owners, the Battistini family, kept possession of the sign.
Country music recording artist Jillian Cardarelli, a Haverhill native, recently released a new song titled "I never do this."
You can see the music video on Youtube and listen to the song on other media outlets, including Spotify, Apple Music and Pandora.
Cardarelli has been making a name for herself in the country music world, spending much time in Nashville and performing on the country circuit.
Haverhill attorneys Marsha Kazarosian, Walter Costello Jr. and Marc A. Moccia have earned rankings in the 2020 edition of "The Best Lawyers in America.''
The law firm Kazarosian Costello LLP represents plaintiffs in a wide array of practice areas, including personal injury, medical malpractice, civil rights, employment, discrimination and divorce.
