Aren’t we excited about our new Longview gazebo? It’s as if people in this city have no awareness of the atrocious condition of our schools and our streets and sidewalks. This is understandable if you have no school children and drive a luxury sedan and have new sidewalks in a newer development. It would have been nice if, through the years, we had been investing in our schools and doing maintenance on our streets. I wonder where the money has gone other than cute and worthless investitures. I have traveled to other older cities and find this one at the bottom of the list for schools and roads, as if this is a Third World impoverished town.
