An idea for murals

Published 3:34 pm Tuesday, July 28, 2009

Having read your story on the mural on the hangars at the old air base in Bainbridge, these paintings were done by a Decatur County prisoner.

Would it not be a good idea for the city and county to combine forces and paint on The Kirbo Center at the College, likeness of the great teachers of the county.

Then on the wall opposite of the City (this was one of the early banks) Hall across Broad Street, the Reeves Gifts and Linens store, I think would be ideal for the great bankers and money lenders; then on the wall opposite the West Street entrances to the Courthouse, Lady Justice holding the scales, with the judges, attorneys, sheriffs, etc.

Then on the end of the Chinese Food Restaurant opposite of the Emergency Room Parking Lot, the doctors and dentists that has been prominent in our county and city. Just a thought.
