Are you concerned for the city of Albertville or yourself??? It is very obvious who you are. You do not want the project to go through because you are concerned for you're own livelyhood, like you atated in you're other statement made about praying for yourself and your family.
prayers go out

The reason they have gone to 10 million is that AFEC has two build architecture plans one for 8 million and one that is 10 1/2 million guess they are gonna build the Taj Mahal. I have posted info on this subject and how AFEC operates but nobody seems to care,

Congratulations Mr. Spurlin. The votes are in and it looks like you will get to sell your land and build this $10 million facility..... $750,000 for the land, several million when you win the bid to build the facility, smart thinking. It shoudlnt take you long to recoup your money from the campaign loss. You are smarter than I gave you credit for. You've come a long way because I can remember the days when Lowe's wouldnt even give you credit.

TITANIC.. What a beautiful ship indeed, top of the line, all the bells and whistles, millions of dollars spent to build this magnificent piece of art. People from miles around came to see this vessel and a few hundred were able to be a part of the first voyage. The ship was in route at top speed, when a small iceberg appeared. Unable to avoid the iceberg, the ship sank to the bottom of the ocean carrying hundreds with it and millions of taxpayer dollars. So what am I trying to say? Slow down council members of Albertville before you waste millions of dollars and hurt innocent people with your greed. AFEC could be Albertville's Titanic.
no luck here

LONDON (Reuters)– The Titanic hit an iceberg in 1912 because of a basic steering error, and only sank as fast as it did because an official persuaded the captain to continue sailing, an author said in an interview published on Wednesday.

Louise Patten, a writer and granddaughter of Titanic second officer Charles Lightoller, said the truth about what happened nearly 100 years ago had been hidden for fear of tarnishing the reputation of her grandfather, who later became a war hero.

Lightoller, the most senior officer to have survived the disaster, covered up the error in two inquiries on both sides of the Atlantic because he was worried it would bankrupt the ill-fated liner's owners and put his colleagues out of a job.

"They could easily have avoided the iceberg if it wasn't for the blunder," Patten told the Daily Telegraph.

"Instead of steering Titanic safely round to the left of the iceberg, once it had been spotted dead ahead, the steersman, Robert Hitchins, had panicked and turned it the wrong way."

Patten, who made the revelations to coincide with the publication of her new novel "Good as Gold" into which her account of events are woven, said that the conversion from sail ships to steam meant there were two different steering systems.

Crucially, one system meant turning the wheel one way and the other in completely the opposite direction.

Once the mistake had been made, Patten added, "they only had four minutes to change course and by the time (first officer William) Murdoch spotted Hitchins' mistake and then tried to rectify it, it was too late."

Patten's grandfather was not on watch at the time of the collision, but he was present at a final meeting of the ship's officers before the Titanic went down.

There he heard not only about the fatal mistake but also the fact that J. Bruce Ismay, chairman of Titanic's owner the White Star Line persuaded the captain to continue sailing, sinking the ship hours faster than would otherwise have happened.

"If Titanic had stood still, she would have survived at least until the rescue ship came and no one need have died," Patten said.

The RMS Titanic was the world's biggest passenger liner when it left Southampton, England, for New York on its maiden voyage on April 10, 1912. Four days into the trip, the ship hit an iceberg and sank, taking more than 1,500 passengers with it.

GO WOOD

Wood said he had three more opportunities to vote against the project, which will be when the council votes on the contract, on the bond issue and the purchase of the land.

“I still don’t think the project is feasible. I don’t think it will pay for itself and we don’t have any money to make up the difference on the payments of the bond,” Wood said.

“So, I don’t know what is going to happen.

“I know historically some of these things that go in, the first two or three years will be a blast.

“Then people start getting tired of doing those things and backing off.

“My idea and thinking was if it is such a great deal then why hasn’t a private developer stepped up and said ‘I’ll do it’ if it is going to make that much money?”
