Cockrell quickly ceded the floor to another face familiar in the chambers, former councilwoman Bonnie Connor. During her slide-show presentation, Connor noted that phase one of the restoration is nearly complete, with a re-opening celebration expected within a month. Along the way, she also talked about Alpine Drive, an SA landmark which Connor described as the place where young men used to take their "sweethearts" to get a panoramic view of the city, among other things.
When Connor asked councilmembers if they'd heard of the spot, District 5 councilwoman Lourdes Galvan responded by raising her hand. Moments later, Mayor Phil Hardberger could not resist asking Galvan, "It does raise the question: Were you ever on Alpine Drive?" "Yes, sir," she replied sheepishly. "Junior prom. Sorry, mom."
