From what I hear it's medical buildings and an expansion of the Viera Hospital. Anyone have any additional information?

I've been told (though I can't confirm this) that it's a new Obamacare unit.

There won't be any operating theaters, wards/rooms, laboratories, consultation rooms, treatment or other medical facilities but there will be plenty of offices for administrators.

It's going to be funded by the money taken from medicare.

(I was told that by a nurse who had been laid off under the Obamacare 'expansion'.)

Thanks Vince.

From the article:

"“There is no truth to the rumor that it is the the great eye in the sky or the oracle of Viera,” he joked. “But the big thing now is that the flap wraps around the pole and people ask why it can’t be unwound. Well, no one can get up there to unwind it when it is windy. You have to wait until the wind dies down.”"

I thought you guys respected your flag? (Or is it now called a 'flap'?)

I respect your flag ... and I certainly wouldn't fly it where I couldn't treat it with respect.

Where I lived and worked (in anther country), flags were treated with respect. None of this "Oh well, we'll shine a light on it and pretend it's still daylight" garbage.

The flag was raised at dawn (or usually rather later, when we came to work) and it was lowered at sunset (or at the end of the working day.) The flag was treated with respect.

If you can't get at, protect and maintain the flag when you've hoisted it, should a flag really be hoisted on that pole?

I wouldn't allow my country's flag to be hoisted where nobody could look after it.
