Presidents    The Hines Family    Kathy
And then there were the presidents!
     Here's what I know about the "Presidential Busts"...Six presidential busts are on display at the Norfolk Botanical Garden where they were moved after York County refused their creator permission to build a park for 41 giant sculptures of the nation's presidents.  Norfolk welcomed them with open arms, and a broad lawn edged with crape myrtles.
     Eighteen-foot-tall likenesses of Thomas Jefferson, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, Woodrow Wilson, Herbert Hoover and Martin Van Buren will be on display until October.
     In late breaking news (July 9, 2000), The York County's planning commission voted to recommend approval of a park where the 15 to 18 foot tall busts of the presidents will be on display.   Watch CNN for further updates!
