The Veterans Memorial Committee and the City Council are meeting tonight (Tuesday, Aug. 25) at 7 p.m. for a workshop at City Hall, and let's hope a lot of good comes out of it.
Clayton McGraw, who sort of started this whole veterans memorial movement in the first place, said there's been some misinformation about the memorial effort that he hopes to get cleared up tonight. Example: that committee members are slacking at their jobs, that they're way behind in fundraising, stuff like that. Knowing the passion of some of these committee members, I have serious doubts about any of that being true.
There's also been some gossip that the City Council members don't want the memorial downtown and don't care anything about it. Knowing most of the council members as well as I do, I have serious doubts that this is true, either. More likely they just don't want to step on anybody's toes; they'd rather just set the limits and let the committee take care of the rest.
