To the editor:
Century School students are painting a mural as a school project! What a great idea! Something they can look at with pride in years to come. The lot next door could sell and cover up all their work. Perhaps, the city should buy the lot and make it a pocket park.
I think not! Officials at the school knew before starting the project that the lot could be sold at any time. They didn't even bother to get permission to use the lot for scaffolding to be set up to finish the project. Rather than face the disappointment that they created, they want us to pick up the tab, at $185,000. City commissioners, send this idea packing!
