This is a no win situation for everyone. City government has and continues to prove themselves fools, the high powered Catholics that proposed and financed much of this unconstitutional rape upon the good citizens of Wheeling, and the good citizens themselves who have turned their heads and allowed this to happen, have all lost. Shame on all of you.

Regardless of the dirty way this was hndled by the boy Mayor and the city administration and even if you support the idea, is this really the best place and way to spend $3.3 million dollar? There surely can be no thought this is going to revitalize that neighborhood, as EW was destroyed by DHHR section 8 funding that made it slum in a year and it still is and will be. The field is in the middle of the most dangerous place of the city and it is a good thing to decide to lure more kids there? Five years after it is built, we will know whether this is the dumbest thing we have done since rejecting the Mall in the 70's. This decision could be that big? No doubt it is going to be like an auxilary facility for Wheeling Central but putting $3.3 million into it is an odd use of that much money, much of it public money. How much will it be used after the first shooting there? My guess, no even by Central.

What revenue source was used as collateral for this "loan"?

Highland, it's not tax dollars. It's a loan. It won’t become tax dollars until after the deal is done... That’s the way it’s done now.

Besides, just look at the $17 TRILLION in National Debt and this little $1.15 million loan will seem trivial. Pocket change. Only $38 out of your pocket. Plus interest.

And look at how much lacrosse you’ll be able to play now. At night, even. I can't think of any better use of your city tax... er, I mean loan dollars.

A loan? Does that strike anyone as an unwise use of tax dollars?

Somebody on city council needs to lead an expedition into that jungle and bring back Dr. Livingston. Watch out for tigers...
