One of my best friends finally had her groundbreaking for her bridge. Check out today's Chron. She's been working on that bridge for over 15 years. I heard her pitch the idea to my client-back-then, Mayor Bob, when he was running for mayor in 1991. You know, those folks out in Manchester - her neighborhood - wouldn't be getting that bridge if it wasn't for one of my best friends' dogged determination. She made it happen.
You see, a lot of railroad tracks make it difficult to get in and out of her neighborhood - especially when the trains are running. There is a lot of railroad traffic because they go in and out of the chemical plants nearby - and there are a bunch of chemical plants nearby. The bridge will solve that problem. Glad to see a good story written about one of my best friends and her bridge.
Speaking of the Astros, in case you haven't noticed, we've just put two pitchers on the disabled list - Brandon Backe and Trevor Miller - yikes!! We haven't even faced the Cards, Mets, Cubbies, or Braves - interesting.
