Greenline IN, Andertons OUT

The Commercial Appeal has an article on the state of the Greenline up. They should start work in January or February '10 and finish about 6 months later. Huzzah! Course, it ain't all jellybeans and sunshine. An excerpt:
The Wolf River Greenway will eventually link Memphis with Germantown, Collierville and other communities along the river. Short, individual segments will be completed as right-of-way and construction funds become available and eventually linked together -- a project that is projected to take at least 10 to 15 years.
 Yikes!  Ten to fifteen years?  Hoo boy.  Still, progress!  Yeah!

In sadder news, while Cara and I were on the way to Pho Hoa Binh (oh sweet tofu!), we saw a 'dozer levelin' the last bits of the Anderton's facade.  Sadness indeed.  That place was GREAT for photos.  Oh well. Suppose it wasn't really doing anything but collecting tags and trash, but still!  Don't see too many ornate green buildings like that one.

Au Revoir, Anderton's.
