Mural hoopla

I don’t get it. What’s all this brouhaha about the mural on the back (yes, Jeff, the BACK) of the Del Oro? No offense to Mr. Pugh whose works (online anyway) appear quite admirable, but why are we giving $60,000 to a non-local? Why are we spending $60,000 in the first place? I guess there just aren’t any artists in this entire county of artists with enough community spirit to offer their services to do the job? Are you trading civic pride for bragging rights? Also, what was wrong with the original design?
