State of the City Address

There were no surprises in Mayor Joe's State of the City address before the City Council.  Money will be needed from numerous sources to make sure the City Levee passes inspection.  Money will be needed from numerous sources to make sure there are some street repairs in the coming year.  Money will be needed from numerous sources to make repairs to sidewalks and curbs.  Money will be needed from numerous sources to add sidewalks out Main Street to Clark Middle School.  CIty government IS about money.

With limited money we'll need to prioritize and I'm afraid the addition of sidewalks out Main Street to Clark Middle School are a luxury we'll have to forego.  Remember the walk up hill both ways your Middle School (woops Junior High) days didn't hurt you.  How good were the sidewalks then?  George Rogers Clark walked into Vincennes in the mud - and walking to Clark Middle School along the mud besides Main Street - remember there are no curbs out there - would be a great lesson in history.
Besides - in today's society "Build it and they will walk" won't work.  That's what mom and her SUV are for...
