Sometimes, well not just sometimes, but all the time, it is unmalleable for the meager mentalities of the average taxpaying toiling citizenry to comprehend the width and breadth of the research, the planning, the considerations, and the analytical attributes, not to mention the intuitive forward thinking that goes into involving oneself in city government; either in an elected or selected capacity, nor is it acceptable when selected by those steering the ship of state , to cowl from the awesome responsibility of representing those pitifully ill-informed denizens’, in essence, saving the masses from themselves. Oh what burdens they bear.

Tear down the whole city of Wheeling and turn it over to the Catholic Church. Or Invite the Pope to make his home here. Bransfield can be his personnel servent. Seriously- The area is getting too, too many schools and church affiliated activaties. Where do all the profits { And there are hidden profits] go? It's no wonder that the city gets smaller. So much space is taken up by schools, church activities and hospitals.

So if you want to plop an apartment complex int the middle of neighborhood are you disengenious by saying you just want a zone change for five parcels. It changes the entire community. Who ever lives in parcel six will be crushed. Still, you have to wonder why they don't build on the old Mount property instead of grinding up their neighbors. I am a Catholic but agree with those who think RC means Ruthless Catholics. The Diocese trashed one of Wheeling's landmarks to "get space" and yet on that hundred acres there is no room for a dorm and we are to accept that its for "grad" students so we won't think about the noise and clutter of reg dorms. I guess we always expect churches to be kindly opearations and yet they never are. If Wheeling allows another neighborhood to be ruined it's recognition that they don't know that cities are made up of people, not businesses. The front of the dorm will face the campus, the neighbors will be the back side and service areas

Why not just declare all land within the City of Wheeling boundaries an independent Catholic State, just like Vatican City? This action would certainly promote tourism just as it has done for Rome, which encapsulates Vatican City? The police could dress similar to the Swiss Guard, all the catholic owned properties already within the city could be put on tour maps, bobble-head dolls in the likeness of the City Manager, the Mayor and their disciples, the city council, could be sold at gift shops, and a coin of the realm could be minted, which should really sell well. I get the thinking of the planning commission. Brilliant!
