Opinion: Something to Celebrate



I know it can become easy to kick people when they're down. In light of that, I feel the need to celebrate some accomplishments and some things that may be overlooked by the common eye.

  1. “Every time I cross that bridge, I put my head down in utter disbelief. ” In 2010, 77% of Democratic voters (and probably 100% of Republican voters) opposed spending public money to replace Lake Olmstead Stadium.
