Sign of the times

Posted: Updated:

OCEANSIDE (CBS 8) – When it comes to giving access to those with disabilities, Tri-City Medical Center focuses on the possibilities. That's why over the weekend, volunteers painted 51 parking spaces with a new icon.

Tri-City's is the first parking structure to unveil the new, more appropriate logo.

"The arms are stretched out, the body is leaning forward, projects more of a motion type of representation, instead of just static seating there," Tri-City Medical Center CEO Casey Fatch said.

The parking lot project is just about complete, except for one space. After a word of caution, it was time to channel my inner Rembrant.

Time to start shaking things up. A last minute check of the wind, and it's time to assault the asphalt. I can tell immediately that I'm graffiti-challenged.

Enough of this spray stuff. Now to unveil the masterpiece. This is my finest work since that I did the painting of the dogs playing poker.

One small spray for man, one large space for mankind.

In an Oceanside medical center access lot, image is everything. Here, they are acutely aware the physically disabled are only challenged by the limitations that we try to impose on them. In a small way, this new icon attempts to convey that anything is possible.

    Are you one of those folks who are a little apprehensive about going to the dentist? One Chula Vista office is trying to ease the trauma of an appointment by turning their office into a haunted house.
