Mural not the right greeting for visitors

I know this subject has been belabored and I may be old school, but the mural entering our beautiful city reminds me of areas in Los Angeles and Southern California that we came here to get away from several years ago.

While reading Wednesday’s paper (Dec. 11), on the top of page 10A was an article and a picture of an artwork piece.

Wouldn’t that artwork piece by Ed Gunderson — or something of similar nature — have been much more appropriate to greet visitors with a refreshing look at what our city is really about instead of a piece of distasteful patchwork that says nothing at all and is, what I feel, an embarrassment to the City of Florence?

Just my opinion.
