New airport entrance is a big waste of money

I have been hesitant to write about the new entrance to the airport because I cannot believe what I hear. Is it really true that this is being considered to spare airport patrons the humiliation of driving past our jail? Is it not a fact that a major portion of the traffic to and from the airport are local folks who couldn't care less? We are talking major bucks here.

I drive by there often and have never felt threatened or humiliated by the presence of anything on the route. I do not think I would know what the facility is for, if not for the sign. If this is the only reason for the expensive venture, let's use the money for more sensible uses and simply tear down the sign.
