Governor Sonny Perdue will be in Augusta tonight for the naming of a local bridge in memory of H.G. "T" Fulcher, founder of T's Restaurant on Mike Padgett Highway.

The bridge at Mike Padgett Highway and Bobby Jones Expressway - a short distance from the restaurant - will be named for Fulcher, according to a press release from Augusta Mayor Deke Copenhaver's office.

The governor will join the mayor, along with Secretary of State Brian Kemp, Representative Jim Cole, and Fulcher's family at T's Restaurant at 6:30 p.m. for the naming ceremony.

why not name it I destroyed

why not name it I destroyed the trees along I-20 or I am in the process of destroying the MCG in Augusta. Perdue is no friend of Augusta or Richmond County.

At least they're not naming

At least they're not naming the bridge after a living politician. But I beg the DOT, “Please, oh please, oh please! Do not call it the ‘H.G. “T” Fulcher Bridge.’” Just call it T Fulcher Bridge on the signs (and leave out the quotation marks). Shorter is better!

Too many abbreviations except

Too many abbreviations except in the case of Hephzibah/McBean Road...DOT puts Heph/McBean Road on the signs and some people who live there use the abbreviated version as their address. The signs look ridiculous. They should have put Hephzibah on top and McBean Road beneath that.

They have to abbreviate the word Hephzibah because half of the people who live there CAN'T spell it.

I am in no way attempting to

I am in no way attempting to sully the memory of Mr. Fulcher, but I have to ask. Who paid for the signage? Who will pay to maintain the sign and the overpass? What exactly did Mr. Fulcher do for the community as a whole? Who paid for the governor and his entourage to come to Augusta? Since the state is in the middle of a budget crisis, why was this done?
