Now big question is why do we need more ball fields this bad?? And couldnt they find better things to spend this kind of money on ?? Good grief!! How about the Industrial area?? They have recreation on the brain nothing to support it. How much of a sales tax increase is residents going to see?? Another stupid over priced project what a freaking joke!!

It is really looking like our sales tax increases for industrial development and to promote and advertise this area is all being spent to entertain the well off, and once again they could care less that families here don't have jobs that will feed their kids without a handout. They gripe and moan about having to help people, but everytime they spend millions, it is to entertain or attract those who want to have a good time. I agree you need something for the people to do for recreation if you want them to relocate here, but jobs that pay enough to feed families is good too. Private businesses here are expanding and that will help if city does not stand in way. If it gets bigger and we start attracting outsiders, they may have to clean up their act and not do so much underhanded business. They can not even keep up fields they have because they hire people who just want money and don't care about game. They had a chance to hire someone who would work hard and do it right but he not one of their buddies I guess. I am surprised they did not put convicts out there like Hash wanted to around all the kids. Does that sound like they give a rats patuty about anyone.

We cater to Murphy Oil and the other large employers who attract outsiders to move here. Without them, this town would be nothing but a bunch of local ignorant trash.

That dumbass blackmon is off the complex board, so maybe people see value in using it to attract visitors instead of forcing contractors to buy from his store to maintain it. Sounds like a step in the right direction.
