"My Town and Yours" Thoughts and Observations of Mark Lange
They Really Weren't Listening, but I Like to THINK They Were...

All that sidewalk/crosswalk construction on Sixth Street and along Willow Street looks like some progress for Vincennes. They are actually putting in curbing for a few feet at least. Maybe the powers that be were listening - well I like to think they were listening. They weren't - the project was long in the works before my recent blog on the subject. I do wonder why start in the area of the hospital's huge construction project. How many huge construction trucks and other heavy equipment will run over the corners in the process of building new buildings and tearing down old ones on the GSH campus? How many of the new corners will be ruined? Didn't our engineers talk with their engineers? They both are based in Indianapolis I'm sure and probably get together for lunch regularly at St. Elmo's. Maybe they could talk about working together while savoring their second bourbon on us?
