I think Glen Bell hit the nail on the head in his response to the bridge discussion. That bridge has been a topic of discussion for 30 years hasn't it? Seems it was when I moved there in 1971 (or it came up shortly thereafter).

Each year the price increases, and the same pros and cons keep surfacing. I don't think anybody really knows how the bridge, if built, will be maintained, how much it will cost, or who will do it. That bridge could be a boondoggle, or it could be a very good addition.

Beating a dead horse? Probably. I'm turning my attention to the LIVE horses at Del Mar Race Track beginning this next week.

Hope you all had a good July 4th. And, good luck to the Little Leaguers in Sitka. Hope to see you in San Bernadino in August.

G-day! (learned that from Len Laurance)
