Columbus day event draws supporters and protesters in Pueblo

It's not my place to tell Italian-Americans who might replace Columbus as their historical hero.

Franklin Park off East Broad Street was transformed into a horticultural exposition that rivaled both Disney's EPCOT and World's Fair.

The largest city named for Christopher Columbus has called off its observance of the holiday named for the explorer. Boycotted by Native Americans, who called attention to Columbus's abuse of indigenous people in nationwide demonstrations that year, the OH celebration came at a price of $95 million.

In fact, for the first time ever not even Columbus, Ohio will be celebrating its namesake's holiday.

While post offices are closed, UPS does not observe the holiday. The courts are also closed on Columbus Day, along with government offices and most libraries. Ohio's capital city, population 860,000, will be open for business Monday after observing Columbus Day probably "for as long as it had been in existence", said Robin Davis, a spokeswoman for Democratic Mayor Andrew Ginther. So, the city chose Veterans Day.

Over the weekend Donald Trump issued a proclamation declaring Monday 8 October as Columbus Day.

It's Columbus Day 2018, and while many schools aren't in session for the holiday, the same doesn't go for most stores and restaurants.

"We have a number of veterans who work for the city, and there are so many here in Columbus", a city spokesperson said, according to the paper.

The White House proclamation notes Columbus was a native of the Italian City of Genoa and it honors the 'important contributions of Italian Americans to our country's culture, business, and civic life. But Curtatone, like other city and state leaders, said that the brutal history evoked by recognizing Columbus is enough to overcome any sense of pride Italian Americans might feel.

Amid the controversy, another person wrote that if the name Columbus is so polarizing, the city shouldn't stop at the holiday: It should change its name altogether.

So what did Columbus really do?

That includes a peaceful protest of prayers, speeches and traditional singing in 2016 at Columbus City Hall - underneath the statue of the explorer that sits out front - to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline and to urge OH to support more renewable energy.

The City of Angels is celebrating its first-ever Indigenous Peoples Day with a series of events throughout the day Monday.

"We believe Christopher Columbus represents the values of discovery and risk that are at the heart of the American dream, and that it is our job as the community most closely associated with his legacy to be at the forefront of a sensitive and engaging path forward, toward a solution that considers all sides", he wrote.
