Arched entrance Charles de Gaulle would have loved

2013-05-10 - Lindsey Wilson Sports Park, 828 Russell Road, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener. One can almost visualize the procession of bands, the cavalcades and dignitary convoys, the parades for heroes making passage through the dramatic new entrance to Lindsey Wilson Sports Park. For sure it will help make for better theater, and leave a memorable vision in the minds of those who pass through and and leave under it. Yesterday, Thursday, May 9, 2013, Lindsey Wilson Plant Operations Manager Mike Newton, white shirt, Jimmy Bottoms, blue and Danny Brockman walking up hill, red shirt were putting the finishing touches on one of the last major phases of construction for the Sports Park, an unmatched jewel which has become, the "New Face of Columbia," not only from the Louie B. Nunn Parkway, but now, on busy Russell Road as well. By last night, the globe lights were in place. Yet to be added: A sign between the arch standard on the right and the distinctive globe lamp, and the crowning touch, a Raider Bob on the entrance face.
