Ten years ago today
From the Herald-Times, describing the reaction to the city's decision to cut down 66 trees at Miller-Showers Park on Earth Day 2002:
One surprised person cried at the sight of the removed trees. Another observer called the city's parks and recreation staff to inform them each tree killed had its own personality. Yet another person spent her day Tuesday angrily questioning city officials about their process for public input on tree removal.
Others complained about the trees being removed on Earth Day. This happened accidentally because a city contractor moved up its schedule for tree removal by a day, after the contractor had originally planned the work for Tuesday.
I wonder if the scene looked something like this:
"Each tree killed had its own personality." LOL!
