Name that bridge

Posted By on Fri, May 12, 2006 at 4:34 PM

If it's good enough for the Huckabees, why not everyone else? If you don't already know -- and judging by our e-mail, lots of people do -- there's an on-line petition drive underway to name the pedestrian/bike bridge being built over Murray Lock and Dam for County Judge Buddy Villines, who pushed for the project.

While we're at it, what say we start a list of other projects suitable for renaming in honor of famous personages. Naming the federal bankruptcy courthouse for Tommy Robinson is one idea that pops to mind. You didn't ask, but the only place with which I have deep enough association for at least a small memorial plaque is, alas, defunct -- the D&D Cafe.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
