First, Mr Glaub could have made his points in a more diplomatic way, but the bottom line is that he disagreed with what council was trying and succeeded in doing which was slamming this naming issue down our throats. Mr Popoff has no right to take away Mr Glaub's freedom of speech...he used no profanity. He only spoke what he felt. Is Marco becoming communist Russia??? Lastly I do not feel there is a need to name ANYTHING after ANYONE....we should only use generic names like VETERANS PARK. When you compare one generation to another there will always be people who do not have an appreciation of what someone has done. Does anyone today have a clue who JUDGE JOLLEY is??? Yet the main access point to this island is named after him!In 20 years NO ONE WILL KNOW WHO GLENN TUCKER WAS EITHER! The same holds true for TOMMIE BARFIELD....Do any children in this island REALLY know who she is???These are 2 examples that we should NEVER name ANYTHING after people...we have so few opportunities so we need to maximize them by naming things after generic entities like Veterans that have been here long before we and will be her long after we are gone.The thing I mostly dislike about what transpired is that council once again made a decision that affects the entire city without allowing public input. The naming of probably the most symbolic building was named after a half hour discussion. This should not have been! This should have remained as a DISCUSSION and set for the next meedting to entertain others and vote after the public was made more aware.SNEAKY, DISTRUSTFUL POLITICS MARCO STYLE!
