Fast and furious debate on Fort Hamer bridge

The U.S. Coast Guard is hosting a "public scoping" meeting on the proposed Fort Hamer bridge project 4-8 p.m. Aug. 17 at Carlos Haile Middle School, 9501 State Road 64 East.

The public meeting has to do with the environmental impact statement that will be required before any pile-driving begins.

How long might that be? Somewhere between one and 20 years. Seriously.

Some folks aren't waiting for that public hearing Tuesday. They are already commenting away on a federal website.
