Ferdie to Bob

    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    « Clayton tax proposals update | Main | Hot dogging it »

    April 10, 2014



    Maybe if the Americans had followed the Germans/Europeans when the autobahn was built-we wouldn't have to constantly deal with road repairs. Supposedly the autobahn's depth is twice that of the US highways. As a result of increased depth-the roads don't crack as easily from freezing, weight, etc. When repairs are needed- they repair the entire 'slab or section' & don't do all this 'piece meal patching'. While it would be more expensive upfront due to the additional materials, in the long run-repairs would be less frequent.


    I don't see that all this road work is helping the financial woes of Illinois. Maybe we need to rethink this whole idea of spending money and instead start paying down our debts, THEN, work on the roads. I want a new drive way, but, will patch it until it fits in my budget.


    Probably paid for by fuel taxes. Not out of the General Fund. Needed, and job creation results from the projects. Special purpose funding. Will help get union laborer support and please taxpayers with better roads. If we had the soil type of Missouri (rock) we would not have the frequent replacements. No one can afford the German way. I saw them replace the entire pavement between Heidelberg and Mannheim because the surface was slightly rough, but smoother than the brand new I-255 pavement, which had a brushed finish.
