While I was out walking today …

I saw workers hammering boards onto the steel frame at the site of the future Coeur d'Alene Carousel. I have a call into Cari Fraser of the Carousel Foundation for an update re: construction schedule this fall. The more I see of the rising Carousel at that site, the more I applaud the wisdom of city officials and carousel organizers for putting it there. Once the nearby Memorial Field stands are spruced up and the softball diamond converted into a softball/soccer complex, with an updated Skate Park, the site will look mighty fine.
