    I knew these kids wouldn't appreciate what they have.

    It only takes a few.

    I wonder if town kids are involved.

    Sounds more like vandalism than just damage from skateboarding.

    My money is on Local Kids. I see them at the Cajundome all the time doing the same thing. I told them at the dome all they had to do was drill one inch holes about three feet apart on top of the wall and cement rebar sticking up one inch and you stop the grinding of skateboards.........

    You cannot make an unsafe environment. Such things would cost the Cajun Dome when the assured injury occurs.

    Wouldn't be as assumption of risk where it is an obviously dangerous situation and you still do the behavior? Wouldn't be the same as someone climbing a fence and cutting themselves on razor wire?

    They are still wrapping up work on the 'Walk of Honor.'

    The first pic is the continuation of the WoH outside of the quad; this is the sidewalk from Martin Hall, along side T Joe's house, heading towards Hebrard Blvd. There isn't a marker yet denoting the year, but I think it starts with the 2004 grads.

    Here is the new portion of the sidewalk, as it crosses the Blvd. No grad names, but a neat FDL insert.
    The last pic is to show that they have now closed off Boucher Drive for normal traffic. Guess they will open it for dorm move in days, etc.

    I also took some some pics today of the new intramural fieldhouse/fields. Looks like a really nice lighting system....and it's almost done, imho.

    Also, the area that used to hold the old IF's (across Cajundome Blvd from Bourgeois Hall) is turning out to be a very nice green space, with a nice walking/running path. I drive by almost daily and always see lots of people using it strolling babies, jogging, etc., but much less crowded than, say, Girard Park.

    It is open only for move in/out days for the residence halls. They do use it for deliveries to the union though. The WOH has been complete for some time now.

    ---Forgetting the funding vehicle --but didn't the students access a semester fee for the completion of a campus Master plan??? And I think the Athletic campus was able to piggy back on some of the $---Correct??? Anyway, it sure in some nice stuff!!!

    Kind of looks like they are starting to work on turning area where the old 'eye-sore' buildings were into a green space. They have extended the Walk of Honor on the Union side of Boucher, but...although hard to see in this pic.....they have also roped off the entire area from the lake to Boucher to the U to Hebrard and there are lots of survey flags throughout that space.
    I haven't seen what the plans are for this area, except we were told that they will incorporate the old Guillory Hall balcony into a stage of some sort.
    Helmut: you seem to be the man in the know for this kind of thing....have you heard anything about this project getting started?

    No I have not. I offered to do work for this project as a donation but I guess they didn't need my services.

    When the Cox building is torn down and a quad is built at the athletic complex in its place, connect it to the main campus by building a smaller version of the on-campus quad with fountain and FDL and brick the area with an athletic Walk of Honor. Start with football at that spot and do the same at each facility for each sport.
