Scrap The Plan

Got A Dollar? Give Them A Holler

A US village is trying to get around having to demolish a decrepit, old bridge by selling it for $1. The Kickapoo River bridge in Soldiers Grove, Wisconsin, was closed to traffic in the 1970s and officials hope high scrap prices will attract a buyer with a buck burning a hole in his pocket. The 1910 bridge was a major community link until a new route was built.

FOOTNOTE: A buck stops here.

I'm always amazed by how much could be recycled , but isn't because we don't know about it. I think the bridge is a wonderful point of fact to this end. I hope someone forks out a buck for it.

Peace, Kai

A gold mine for a mixed-media artist. Paula, the Self-Taught Artist, would be in her element, but she's in Vermont!

That's nothing. I bought the actual Brooklyn Bridge in NYC a few years ago for only $100!! :)

Hello, dear. I thought I had responded, but now I can't find it. I'm a bit daft these days so... Anyway, I would be honored if you added me to your blogroll. So, so honored.

I've been meaning to participate in your 'weekend wanderings' so I guess now is as good a time as any to begin...

They obviously have not seen some of the so-called 'bridges' out here. When I first moved here, I literally stopped the vehicle, turned to my dad and asked "Do you think those two pieces of wood will hold us???"

Somebody will come and and take that deal. Drugs make people do crazy things.

(like blogging)

Wife is from Wisconsin, we were there over Thanksgiving...of course the "catch" with the $1 Bridge is......you remove it and move it.....a little more cost involved in that, however, if you have the land(and a spot of water), you've got yourself a conversation piece.
