In Brief Downtown to Get a Huge Sundial January 25, 2011 Waldo Jaquith 5 Comments The Mall is due to get a huge sundial in front of City Hall. I like the sister cities video teleconferencing idea better.

I wonder if we could get a price break for buying two and use the second to mark the next time capsule location.
Well its about damn time they put a sundial in, because it was getting so that a man couldn’t tell time at all in front of City Hall. Many is the time I’ve walked by that spot and thought to myself, “self, what we need right here is a sundial.”
Nobody downtown need ever be late for an engagement again.
I actually kind of like the idea of a sundial. Charlottesville’s most famous sundial currently resides up at Monticello, so sundials are already a tiny, tiny, tiny part of CVILLE culture.
Although when I think about big sundials, I can’t imagine any that would really be able to compare with: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kentucky_Vietnam_Veterans_Memorial
It’s quite stunning, and pretty well engineered, in my opinion.
But I DO like the idea of video teleconferencing, just because then everyday people’d be able to interact with sister city folks, and not just the city council foreign junkets. Oh well.

There we go. :-)
@the boss of me , I was about to suggest that we bury it under this one but in 50 years I’m sure it would have been dug up. I now understand why nobody remembers where it was buried 50 years ago. Judy Mueller, Maurice Jones and Dave Norris coundn’t remember yesterday the results of a vote that Council took a week ago Tuesday. Then again, Council must continue spending money or somebody may start expecting it to lower a tax rate or two.
