Is our great savior only President Trump!!!
It is a indictment on our forth estate!!! Where they don't have the skills and resources to comprehensively paint our horrendous dysfunctions with our greater good.
That is why I was running my around that bridge protesting for three years like a mad man with a fake homemade halo on my head and then yanking unattached planks from a walkway of a grossly obsolete 1920s era rust bucket bridge. It was the best $1500 dollars I ever spent.
And the greatest over arcing issue of it all, always with tears in my eyes and infinite sorrows in my heart, is how severe and horrendously underfunded all our great institutions serving our common good have become.
We have become a geography of individual nation states with no glue to hold us together. It truly is survival of the fittest We are aiming for nothing but our individual self interest. It is a great regression of democracy itself.
Sometimes with my fake homemade halo on my head, I feel like I am the only sane person in the USA.
I just last week gave the Keene Sentinel a heads up. I asked them to check into when my bridge build is to begin? It seems they blew me off. It is a $35 million dollar project. I don't understand why the local papers don't keep us updated on the huge construction project.A new bridge might finally be built, adding a chapter to a story that began in 1977Originally published in The Commons issue #406 (Wednesday, May 3, 2017).By Wendy M. Levy/The CommonsBRATTLEBORO—How long does it take to build a new bridge?When it connects two states across a body of water, includes a railroad grade crossing and a hazardous waste site, and involves one of Brattleboro’s least-favorite intersections, it could take 40 years.And they haven’t even started construction…
Sitting aside the marina today is a NHDOT soil sampling rig. They pull out bore holes of dirt, they evaluate the soil conditions in advance of the project. They drill down many feet or to bed rock. Then the engineers figure out what kind of bridge footing are needed for a particular bridge.
I wonder when the actual dirt digging begins???
