Wood Makes a Gravelly Point

RR020618 BaileyWoodFeb. 6, 2018 – A Congressional representative from Georgia, Jody Hice, wants to rename Gravelly Point Park in Arlington County, Va., and call it Nancy Reagan Memorial Park. An article in the Washington Post has a few things to say about that, and quotes someone we know well, Bailey Wood: “Gravel is truly one of the most fundamental building blocks in America,” said Bailey Wood, vice president of communications for the National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association, located about five miles from Gravelly Point, in Alexandria. “We commonly say around here that there is nothing of significance built in this country that doesn’t start with a rock. And gravel is a fundamental component of that.” Yeah, Wood makes a Gravelly Point, some names ought to be just left the way they are.
