Thank you very much for your well said accurate and eloquent words.
This country was not founded to hold everyones hand, wipe thier nose, and powder their butt when things get a little rough.
The true definition of government aid is to take blood out of one arm, dribble 2/3's of it on the floor and put it back in the other arm.
justoncrack seems to be exaclty what his name says.
Thank you again RichardBarbosa dead right on the money.
I think if our elected officials are going to make any type of presentation that might interest or effect any person living here, then these presentations must be free access to everyone. Charging people to hear these presentations is wrong, and in my mind teetering on illegal and/or immoral.
If the chamber wants to try and make some money selling tickets to a lunch or dinner, that is fine. But to tell me that I must spend money to hear what is going on within the city/county/state government is totally wrong.

After recalculating the time would be 11.5 years before the payoff would come.
So if the fair rent is $78,870. per year. Why not pay the $780,000.00+-, that the county wants. 10 years of fair rent would be about the same, but rent goes on forever. If the city were to buy the space, then we would save money in the long run by not having to pay $78,870.00 per year or more.
Sounds fair to me. If the city council does not accept this offer, then they are no longer negotiating, they are making demands. It is time for the city to say yes.
If I were in charge of the American Legion Post, I would raise these rates to at least $7.00 per person, and punch cards to $90.00.
Annual passes for 63 and older would be $300.00, and annual passes for those less than 63 would be $350.00.
Then perhaps enough money could be raised to keep the pool open.
Just my opinion.
That explains a lot. I don't attend GOWD, I believe it to be a waste of time and I am fishing then. I have never been nor do I anticipate ever going inside the high school. I also don't attend WTW, too many people to suit me, and too much noise.
Like I said before when someone can prove to me that all the sports programs are self supporting I will be still, I doubt that anyone can do that.
I find it very difficult to believe that any sports program within this school district is self supporting. Very difficult indeed. I can't remember ever seeing all these kids raising money. It would seem to me that in 31 years I would have seen them at one time or another. Perhaps though I have not been looking in the right places. Where, Mr. Hobbs do these money raising activities take place?
$85.00 a year is not nearly enough to pay all the costs associated with a sport like football. with all the equipment necessary, care of the field, transportation to games, and use of the gym for indoor training.
And I don't know of any one that sells a room for the night for $25.00.
I don't see no reason why all the students should have to suffer for the benefit and enjoyment of a few on these teams.
When the team players pay all the costs of their sport then I will keep quiet. I don't believe that is the case at this time.
Education is infinitely more important than playing any sport, no matter which individual child might have the chance to go to the Olympic trials.
