>Public mailboxes removed in Greenville

>In an apparent cost-cutting measure, the public mailbox on the 600-block of South Broadway was removed last week. Presumably, several other local mailboxes were also removed – as this removed box was added to a truck with 6 or 8 other mailboxes already on board. The sidewalk now has an ugly – and potentially dangerous slab – where a very convenient mailbox used to be.

>Progress continues with Wayne Hospital expansion

>In recent weeks, the Wayne Hospital construction has been less-than-aesthetically pleasing, with plenty of rusted metal beams and plastic sheeting present (the latter in shreds after a series of windstorms). However, the project is advancing to the point that a fair amount of the finished exterior is now up.

The new wing has a light contemporary exterior, which is an interestng contrast with the tan brick of the original building. The current construction is on schedule to be completed in January 2010.
