Mayor Buckhorn announced a plan, 90% paid for by TECO, to light up the city's bridges. It's a Beautiful plan/idea that will draw attention to our city's great resource-the Hillsborough River. Being a former Upstate New Yorker, Syracuse the snow capitol of the USA, this plan makes me think of Niagara Falls. Why the Falls? Because anyone who has been the US side of the Falls knows, well say it nice, the US side of the Falls Stinks! It's really does. It's a State/National Park, one that needs a LOT of TLC. Its old and dumpy. While I must say the Canadian side is a mini version of Universal Studios, it's a Tourist trap but a nice one with a Casino. But a few years ago the US & Canadian Gov't decided they needed a new hook, Lights! Lights that change colors! It is a sight to see at night and finally gives the USA something to cheer about.
Now Mary Mulhern is upset cuz she was not informed or in the process to bring this program to rivers bridges. Come on Mary! I know your gonna use that "we didn't follow protocol" BS but we have to move this along. You see, Mary, its not the Gov't Reg's & Oversight is a bad thing or we have too much of it. Its people like you who make a 5 second decision a 1 year odyssey. Seriously people like you give City & County Gov't a bad name. So I guess should let you know I plan on Painting my spare bedroom this sunday...My wife wants eggshell and I want a light blue hue, can you help us?
