No columns for roundabout

July 8, 2014 

I heard that someone has the idea to park the columns from the old St. Clair County Courthouse on the roundabout at Illinois 13 and 158. This is confusing enough without adding some other distraction to the mess.

I have a better idea. These came from a courthouse. Logic would tell one they should be erected at a courthouse. So why not put them in front of the new courthouse? I don't know, it just makes sense to me.
