UTC effort waste of stimulus?; Virginia Beach, VA; 2/8/09

Beach leads list with silly ways to spend tax dollars ...
Virginia Beach's signature silliness? That would be $1.8 million to replace tennis courts. The fact that the Beach is being spanked for its tennis proposal is a sign that critics aren't looking closely enough. Frankly, $3.75 million for urban tree canopy protection is a better example.
Replacing old spans, like the aging Lesner Bridge, fit the bill.
But new tennis courts? Tree canopies? Playgrounds?
Please. And who cares if these items are at the bottom of the list? They should never have been on there at all.
