If you didn’t make it to the Veterans Day observance at Veterans Park, you missed out on an absolutely tremendous event, in spite of the sudden shower that hit the overflow crowd near the end of the ceremony.

If you have been to Veterans Park, it is worth going back to again and again. If you haven’t been, it’s worth a visit. Sometimes, it’s easy to forget just how spectacular the place really is. Last Sunday reminded me of how incredibly special it is. It was and is a great concept, executed to a T. It is, as it should be, a point of pride for the community.

Someone there Sunday said there isn’t another veterans park like it around. Without having done my own research on it, I can see where it would be hard to equal.

Take a few minutes and visit it. It may very well be worth more than the time you spend there.

A welcome new road

I had the opportunity in the last few days to travel the new and final section of the Truman Parkway in Savannah, and it is superb. You have to get a little used to its terminus at Abercorn but it is a great way to get from the southside to ...

Following a tangent's end
June 27, 2014
