Is there some logic I am missing in leaving these structures and risking live while building a multi million sport complex just blocks away.

The logic is you buy fewer votes and pay off fewer cronies when you remediate dilapidated structures.

bloomin that's Wheeling for ya. They should be spending millions on trying to bring companies in not a stupid sports field. At the state level they don't care about Wheeling so that's part of the problem then it's just all downhill from there.

The situation is sure to be resolved now that Herk Henry, with his massive influence, has it in his sights.

They will demolish all the buildings in the city of Wheeling on Main St. in hopes someone without a brain will decide to build there, but they won't touch something that is obviously a real hazard to the community.

Notice how things do not get touch that is obviously a real hazard to the community. More animals are being rabid but no one wants to face the risk to lives that come in contact with stray cats being feed in numbers by people of good will. This could create a rabies epidemic that will be blame on dogs but really from cats and rac***** eating from the same places create by the good people..

Wheeling has a few like this, Detroit has over 76,000. This country has problems and all they worry about is Travon.

I think they should build a multi million dollar hovaround race track downtown to prevent the aging from withering away in their high rise apartments. It would be good sport and they could sell food and have betting, just like the dog track. People would come from afar for a hovaround racetrack.

Sell the whole town to the US military.

They could use as an urban warfare practice zone, blow up real buildings with live fire demonstration.

Mil ships could use the River and lob shells into it.
