Your Opinion: Photo reflects threat to Adrian's Island

Build up Adrian’s Island? Don’t build up Adrian’s Island? That is the question.

All one has to do is look at the front page of the News Tribune on May 11. The River Crests article shows a picture of The Pyramid and the McBridge (what they call the bridge in Memphis.) Beyond McBridge at the base of the first arch immersed in the water is Mud Island.

This is not the first flood to strike Mud Island. The river floods, Mud Island floods.

Enough said.
