Congratulations Hudson High Class of '14! Your brilliant tactic worked. One of the ugly bridges will get at least a little paint.

It's a good feeling to know that education works well with the young when they can devise and carry out a ploy to get some work done that their elders sometimes woefully neglect. Too bad Council couldn't go a bit further and get both those eyesores the upkeep they so sorely need. Maybe after a year at university, you'll come home with an even more comprehensive plan that will be entirely successful.

By the way, your graduation celebration brought back a memory of a horse being hitched to the front porch railing of a certain university president's home on graduation day. Ah, the olden days.

Elmer Gates, Hudson
