Community Voices: The Other Side of the Bike Path Issue



Last Saturday evening we walked the length of Ocean Blvd. at about 5 o'clock. We were reasonably well dressed because we were on our way to a reception at the Hotel Del. At least half dozen or more times, we were forced to find a way to move off the sidewalk to allow surreys and/or bikes go by. With even minor heels and nice dress shoes, this can be a daunting task since, in some places, the rather narrow sidewalk is bounded by boulders on one side and parking slots on the…

Community Voices: My Husband's Views on The Bike Path Study



My wife and I attended the city council meeting on August 18, 2015 and were surprised and amazed at the opposition to the “bike path study.” As I listened, what particularly amazed me was that statements and arguments were being set forth based on a lack of any facts, reasons, or evidence which could be used to make a logical decision regarding just a “bike path study.”

Having been trained in research and having had professional experience in large organizations related…

Avenue of Heroes Bio: Major General Francis Patrick Mulcahy



MGen Francis Patrick Mulcahy

He was not a risk taker—that was evident from the risk assessment test he took to become an aviator--- and more importantly he had a fiancée waiting for him back home.…
