Proud to announce

The Ohio Dept of Transportation is proud to announce the endowment of $300,000.00 for a mural on Rt 24. That's not a typo, $300,000.00. This money came from the Transportation bill your Rep's signed into action. Aren't we proud. This happened around October, you remember, during the start of the bailout frenzy. I was told in an email from ODOT that we should be proud we got the money instead of someone else. Sorry Southern Iowa, no decorative shrubs for your highway. Eastern Mississippi, no statue honoring the creator of the largest ball of twine. I'm sure you've all seen the nifty things States put along highways. Ever wonder where the money came from? Your Tax Dollars. Think about it the next time your dodging a pothole, or a road is closed because "there's no money"
