Dr Mel was a much beloved local personality. None the less I think this 14 foot bronze statue of the good Dr observing the stars is over the top and out of place on the town beach.

I disagree - there are similar benches at the beach and splash pad and they were all paid for with donations.

I hope it is here to stay - it brings a lot of joy to young and old alike.
