As I introduced myself from Mound, some folks were quite complementary about the downtown development of Mound and saying how lucky we are to have Shoreline Dr moved, as it was up to Lynwood. I kept wanting to say, "Yeah, but..." but then I realized what a lot of these folks were comparing it to their own situation, especially in Navarre.

So please, let me take a moment to praise our city staff and council for their work in setting up a downtown that won't have pedestrians dodging cars. It's so easy to get frustrated when dealing with obstacles, and I have been pretty rough on them when writing here. The Mound city staff and council really do want what's best for Mound, and have those interests at their heart.
