I took this picture of the Y-Bridge at sunset a few years ago. A photo like this may not be possible in the future because 7.5 million dollars of Akron's share of federal stimulus money will go toward improvements to the Y-Bridge(All-American Bridge) - and about 1.5 million dollars of that will be spent fencing the bridge - to keep people from committing suicide there. I think its a waste of money. If someone is going to take their life they are going to take their life - fence on the Y-Bridge or not. Its definitely not the only high, unfenced place in Akron.
...but one thing I can be pretty sure about is that this probably won't be the biggest waste of stimulus dollars we will hear about in the coming months....
