For or against, work has begun on putting up the Christmas lights around the city and on Carl Albert Parkway. Here are the results of the online poll regarding the lights:



Should the city spend money to put up holiday lights on Carl Albert Parkway this year?



Yes, 'tis the season after all 34.92%

Yes, we need some light in our lives 15.68%

No, Christmas is just a humbug 4.99%

No, local civic groups should pitch in and do the work and foot the bill 44.42%



421 votes counted.



This poll is not scientific and reflects the opinions of only those Internet users who have chosen to participate. The results cannot be assumed to represent the opinions of Internet users in general, nor the public as a whole.



Seem like those who responded to the poll are just about evenly split on the question. Since they’re going up all of us might as well enjoy them – Carl Albert Parkway does shine at Christmas time.



By the way, thanks for not letting me have it for misspelling Christmas on the poll – I owe you one!
