As the official non-mayor of Carmel, I hereby proclaim August Roundabout Rodeo Month. In August, each of us Carmelitarians can set our stopwatches as we leave our driveways, tour the city’s 100 roundabouts and see how many we can circumnavigate in one hour.
That’s right. One hour of unsurpassed challenge, beautify and fun. Where else can one tour the Olympic rings at Smoky Row and U.S. 31, ponder the sculptures and cinnamon bun cement things elsewhere?
Arise, Carmelans! In 60 minutes, you won’t get to see all 100. But, let us begin.
Bill Shaffer, Carmel
