While its wouldbe competitors Golds and ACAC obviously used all frivolous means and shyster lawyers to try to preserve their semi-monopolies (and protect their high prices), the Y, the City and the County were naive to think the thing could be quickly bult in McIntire Park. If they had taken PVCC's land offer, years ago, the Y would be in operation now, and a generation of kids who will now go without it would have had its use. Never too late to admit one was foolish, and try to cut your losses, Dear Y, City and County leaders.

The YMCA needs to be denied any type of extension at all....the decision to build the YMCA in the park was a bad decision from the git go....Something as important as destroying the west side of mcintire park should have been an all or none vote by council....Brown, norris and lynch should be tared,feathered and run out of town for their votes to destroy the park with a YMCA...

Why are two easily identifiable private clubs, ACAC and Gold's Gym, referred to as a "group of private fitness club owners"? There is no group. Personally, I'm guessing it's just a bit too easy for the advertisers to play the journalists. Why don't you put the two owners' photos on your website and your broadcast like you do with everything else?

There's a payoff in the works somewhere. Always is. (I mean under the table)Private enterprise should have no bearing on this issue, at all.
