Voice of the people: Cameron Triplett

I'm just an old fuddy-duddy, and I'm in my second childhood, but I do wish the comics pages would remain entertaining. If a political statement is desired, there is the op-ed page.

Our View: Scale back Riverwalk's bloated extension plans

Posted 4/2/2015 in Dispatch Editorials

When the Legislature appropriated less than 10 percent of the funding requested for $25 million to extend The Columbus Riverwalk 14 miles to Columbus Air Force Base, it introduced even more questions to an already ambiguous undertaking.
