James Fonteno, son of former District 1 Council member Charlye Heggins, said his mother really wanted to be there today when the city dedicated the Loop 288 pedestrian bridge for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Here’s Ms. Heggins at the groundbreaking last June.
And James, today:
Today was the grand opening, but the bridge opened to hikers and bikers on May 29, the same day that Ms. Heggins died.
Sometimes, I like to believe you can see the spirits in a photo.
But, don’t worry, the story in tomorrow’s paper will stay grounded in earthly facts and figures.
