“Memorial Day was recently celebrated and the cemetery looked beautiful. Flags were waving for every veteran. But alongside it, Memorial Drive, aptly named, looked awful. It is in deplorable condition. Granted, no Menominee citizens live on this short stretch of road, but the vets who lie there-in deserve better.

“Perhaps some of the $3.4 million available in bond money for street construction can be used for Memorial Drive. Utility projects should not be necessary. Patch jobs done in the past have not worked.

“Come on Menominee, Let’s do something to honor those who gave their lives for us.”
