I see it coming! they are going to “fix” South Roosevelt Boulevard. A fixing not required.
South Roosevelt Boulevard works well. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! the recommended move from 4 lanes to 2 is not needed. The wide sidewalk running along the beach is more than sufficient for walkers, bikers, etc.
I walked the walk for years. almost every day. different hours. Never had a problem regarding too many people.
What is involved here is change for the sake of change. The lets do something mentality where nothing need be done.
I fear the decision has already been made. I am aware there are public hearings ahead, etc. the players at the Florida Department of Transportation want it. Certain City officials want it.
The terms being bandied around sound of something new and magnanimous. Like corridor study, repurposing, optimal configuration, and future reconstruction.
It has been reported that South Roosevelt being redone is the final improvement recommended by the Project Development and Environmental Study.
I did not even know a change was contemplated till a couple of months ago. This Project development thing makes me suspect it has been out there for years.
It is time for the City Commission to stand up and do the right thing. Instead of succumbing. Commissioner Kaufman has already indicated the reconstruction sounds good. Time for him to move over on the side of the people. Most of decisions thus far not the best.
My first stop last night was Office Max. I need earphones for the computer. Many earphones. Blew my mind. Too complicated. the sales person was no help. she knew less than me.
I bought nothing. called Sloan and told her to buy the right one.
Why the earphones?
I soon will be doing another show. Yes, one on top of what I do already.
It will be a streaming in effect on You Tube. Several times a day. Roughly 30-60 seconds. One topic/issue. As the day progresses and I see something worth mentioning, I will sit down and get it out. Easy. No big deal.
I will be doing the show from my desk in my bedroom. You will be able to see and hear me. The shows will be archived so you can go on at any time and catch up.
Once set up, you will be able to find me by Louis Petrone. Key West Lou did not work because I am already archiving my tuesday night podcast show on You Tube under the Key West Lou designation.
The show’s actual title is Louis Petrone Says…..
I will let you know soon the actual date the show will commence.
I may even wear a baseball cap on occasion.
Stopped at Duval Square to view Larry Blackburn’s photo exhibit. Spectacular!
Larry also has a hat and Ecuadorian store at 510 Fleming. Interesting items available.
Finally, Berlin’s. Dinner at the bar. No Bria. She was in a wedding. The food continues to be great. I enjoyed lobster and mushroom risotto.
A group came in. Ordered drinks. One of the men asked for…..Diet. The bartender looked at him. The patron responded to the blank look…..This is how I work out. Diet! Meaning diet soda, of course.
Christmas Parade tonight. The best! I will watch at Don’s Place and at the County Office Building. First with friends and then to join the grandkids.
Syracuse/North Florida at 4 today. No comment, other than I suspect Syracuse will win. Not sure these days.
Enjoy your day!
