Why continue commenting on this subject? This newspaper is afraid of, and will not print the truth on this subject; a local judge made a ruling without even interviewing the city manager of the mayor, when they should have been put under oath; the catholic boosters who were also privy to the arrangement have shut up tighter than a clam shell; and the contributing lawyers to this charade should be disbarred, but nothing will happen because that is the slime that rules Wheeling and the people allow it.

Amazing the integral process of CDGB money is an emphasizes on participation by persons of low or moderate income, particularly residents of predominantly low- and moderate-income neighborhoods, slum or blighted areas, and areas in which the grantee proposes to use CDBG funds.

Something is wrong with the city if they are spending money the city does not have and now wants to take out a loan to pay the bills. A family gets into trouble spending more than they earn and the city is doing the same. Poor accounting practices by the city an allowed by the city managers is not good.

Vote the Boy Mayor and the entire council out next time around.

Then, demand that the new council demand Herron's raise back before firing him.

Then, disclose all of the shady dealings with North Wheeling "greenfield" developments, the Wheeling Central Athletic Complex, the desire to move the city Ops Center, the Capital Music Hall, a certain former elected official and his cronies and the rest of the corrupt actions.

Using federal block grant money to fund an athletic complex for a Catholic school? Will a Buddhist school be able to get federal block grant money to expand their athletic-meditation garden?

So they are now borrowing money for what was supposed to be privately funded and they have no future money lined up for maintenance. Is that correct?

Somebody needs to call Wheeling Central and tell them to cut their grass.
