so i was driving the other day on fort polk and i noticed the crosswalks across from HDQ building has blinking lights, not just one of them both of them. and there is even a crosswalk in the parking lot of HDQ. at first i thought wow, cool. then i thought why there but not at the school. then i drove by the school and you can't even see the stripes its so worn. i thought that is kind a backwards. why would the school crosswalk be fading and without lights but the HDQ building has two crosswalks in street with flasing lights. ahhhhh then it dawned on me, the sports bar across the street, so if you have to many drinks you can find your way back home or i mean to the parking lot. nice my hat is off to the one who thought of that..... i wonder how much the crosswalks cost, 15 to 20 thousand? good use of government spending.
oh and why the heck is it so hot in the gym, i lost two pounds walking in today. not trying to lose just maintain.
oh and not trying to make anyone cry, or offend, it was just my observation.

There are a couple things that you have to look at here.

1. Length of time those crosswalks/buildings have been up... School, old. HQ,new.

2. Location: Corps Rd, limited traffic or light traffic. Louisiana Ave, heavy traffic 24/7

Not everything can be fixed at once... I suppose that is one of the reasons why there are officers at the school crosswalks during pick up and drop off hours and not at the HQ.

With so many things being under construction on post it is hard to get to everything at once. I am sure that is on their list.

If you know of anyone that attends the Post HQ staff call meetings they may be able to tell you what the future plan of action is for that area.

The gym is hot because its a huge old building and the ac needs to be redone. They are working on the other gym now. I am sure that cantrell gym is next on their list too.
