Now, that's how to spend 5 million clams!!!

The economy must be just dandy at the Sunset Beach Chamber of Commerce and Dept. of Revenue! 5 million dollars to keep an old bridge? I know there aren't any roads that need work there or any 1950's trailers that should be hauled off, right?

The state just paid to build a new bridge there so that people won't have to drive into the drink and can actually evacuate the island when the need comes. I'm all about history and memories too, but $5,000,000.00 for a half rotten, out-of-date piece of roadway? There is nothing spectacular about it with the exception that its about 40 years out of date. I doubt it will be an outstanding, revenue churning tourist attraction. They must have one heck of a tax base surplus there!!! I suppose if the local taxpayers agree, they can waste their money however they want.
