Going ... going ... gone: Two more trees on Spring Street.
I know. There's an explanation.
The two trees standing until yesterday in front of the St. Edwards Court building on Spring Street officially were diseased, or perhaps had been irreparably harmed by the butchery of the utility company, or this, or that. Tree abuse in this town is old news, so what I'd like to focus on instead is the sidewalk aftermath ...
... in which the ensuing sawdust was not swept and removed, but artfully raked atop the concrete.
A fat lot of good it does, but this is New Albany -- as far north as the old south ever gets.
