Congratulations to Current in Carmel for publishing the cover story, “Reflecting Poorly” in the April 30 edition.
As a resident whose apartment overlooks the reflecting pool and to whom the reflecting pool is potentially an exceptional, beautiful and laudable structure honoring our veterans and the city of Carmel, it has been my frustration to see during the last three years or more the crumbling coping (simulated limestone… Indiana exports Indiana limestone internationally!) and reported costly leaking since its completion only 10 years ago.
It was such a pleasure for me as well as my neighbors, friends and city residents, to see that the poor state of the Veterans Memorial reflecting pool is being addressed.
The Veterans Memorial and the reflecting pool should be a site which brings a great sense of pride to our veterans and the residents of this outstanding city of Carmel.
