    How amazing to see such progress in Redding.
    Have a great week, celebrate freedom and each other!

    Kudos to the organizers of what looks to be a very informative and entertaining week. Well done.

    In 2014 the city spent $80,000 to upgrade the Sundial’s lighting to be able to do things like this (that sum is just a fraction of the $70+ million the city has so far spent in support of this “free” bridge).

    You won’t see conservative events utilizing this feature anytime soon: the city’s official policy, set by the liberally compensated Democrat Kim Niemer, states that these lights are not to be used in support of free speech:

    “Lighting of the Sundial Bridge promotes holidays and other public events of community significance. In adopting this policy, the City of Redding does not intend to create a public forum for purposes of the exercise of the right to speech. Any request for the lighting of the Sundial Bridge must meet the criteria that the communication intended by the lighting represents a community, rather than individual, message furthering the public health, safety and welfare.” http://www.cityofredding.org/home/showdocument?id=11033
