Local artist’s vision
of Mayor Victor Ashe.

The recent demise of the Lyons View Gardens Project leaves almost $500,000 in city funds available for other uses. Although many projects are being considered, one project which is gaining popularity is to spend the funds to erect a statute of outgoing Major Victor Ashe in Worlds Fair Park. The statue has already been deigned by a local artist (see photo at left) and shows the mayor at his stately best. Supporters claim it a fitting tribute to a man who has given so much to the city. At press time the Mayor was at home under the Henley Street Bridge and could not be reached for comment.
