Awaiting new letters

Saturday, October 25, 2008
AARON EISENHAUER ~ aeisenhauer@semissourian.com Letters were missing from the Rush Hudson Limbaugh U.S. Courthouse sign Friday. Charlie Cook, spokesman for the General Services Administration regional office, which is responsible for the federal building, said the letters were to be replaced with new versions because they weren't put on correctly before. "It didn't look as we intended," Cook said. In July, six letters were stolen by vandals, leading to the letters being replaced by others that were fastened more securely to the cornerpiece. The courthouse was dedicated Oct. 6 after a series of lengthy delays in constructing the building and preparing it for use.
