Save the diving lady!

The effort to restore the neon "diving lady" to the Starlite Motel in downtown Mesa is still about $20,000 short.  The icon was damaged a little over a year ago in a heavy storm.  Now, the Mesa Preservation Foundation group is taking the restored neon pieces on tour to help raise funds.

There are many things that have changed over the years here in Mesa, but we should find ways to maintain our tradition.  Though we were never huge fans of trying to save the train in pioneer park, this icon is something that should be preserved.
