Buh Bye, Old Giant, Welcome, CityMarket!

I attended this morning's Construction Kickoff celebration for CityMarket at O. Several dignitaries spoke under a tent next to the historic market . . .

. . . and then the fun really started:  the commencement of the tearing down of the old Giant supermarket.  Each speaker got a turn inside the excavator to take a whack at the grocery store.  Mayor Gray took the first swipe.  I think Councilmembers Brown and Evans were neck and neck for most impressive/forceful attacks at the 1970's era structure.

Exciting right?!
