Your morning news roundup for Thursday October 4th, 2007:

Mayor Miller is considering having a panel of outside experts do an assessment on city spending. Perhaps this should have been done a while ago?

The wreckage of The Orcadian, a schooner that sank in Lake Ontario in 1858, has been found by two American researchers. The wheat it was hauling is surely water-logged.

Beware the butt-grabber. Police want to warn residents in the area bounded by Yonge/401/Bayview/York Mills that there's a man out there that has an offside urge that he acts on.

Drivers may not like them, but a number of proposals are being put forth to help curb our serious traffic problems including road tolls, extended no parking hours, scramble pedestrian crossings, and more.

Speaking of roads, three of Toronto's made it into the top 20 list of Ontario's Worst Roads: Steeles Avenue, Bathurst St, and Dufferin Street.
