A farmers market in downtown Nashville is held under a pavilion equipped with massive fans to circulate the outdoor air.

I was glad to learn Iola commissioners are re-evaluating whether to put $155,000 of insurance money toward a new floor in the recreation building in Riverside Park.

Now that it has flooded three times in the last seven months, the odds aren’t good we’ve seen the last of high water there. 

I suppose I’m beholden to the massive building just because of its history as a Works Progress Administration project and its Art Deco architecture, but even those unique qualities can’t disguise the fact that it’s somewhat of a money pit.
