Nothing comes free, including a new bridge

I read that a majority of respondents surveyed wanted the old bridge replaced, but didn’t want to pay $100 per year, or so, to pay for it.

I wonder how many of those who apparently wanted something for nothing are comfortable spending $100 per month on lottery tickets?

I guess projects that will last 80 to 100 years are not as important as the ridiculously small chance of winning the big one.

Or perhaps the fairies sprinkle magic dust in the atmosphere over Trail, and financing for huge projects gently descends from the clouds.

Are we a little spoiled or what?
