The Picayune Item
I was happy to be in the meeting of the board of directors when we voted to sell the old hospital to the city. The hospital grounds on Goodyear Boulevard should make an interesting green city park for the community.
We spent a pleasant afternoon in such a park in Florida recently. The park was full of citizens gathered for a picnic lunch. There were no speeches, no band playing- only the background music of a single guitar player with a western drawl singing country songs such as “I’m an Okie from Muskogee” (So am I).
