Sounds Like a Deal Now

The first discussions about replacing the Washington AVenue bridge over Kelso Creek in Vincennes were certainly attention grabbing. Over a million dollars to replace the short span. No busses or fire trucks over the bridge. What are we going to do? How will we ever pay for the work?
Now the county highway department comes up with a price less than half the sky is falling price and it looks like a deal to everyone. Well the county highway department says there's a price that's half the price brought up before. At my house we usually get the price of something BEFORE we get all fired up about how expensive something is. In the future that might be a good way for the highway department to figure out what they need.
