I know many on Topix won't care, but many are tired of the bs about this mess. I bet there have been 6 times Duncan has claimed permit by end of month . Over the last 18 months . Now they lose funding from rotary club after Duncan says they might lose the 100000 dollar gift . The project is a joke. The planned parking is a mess and not enough fields of same size to truly have tournaments. It is time to stop the bleeding . At least replace the board with people who know something . The design is bad, and information released is worse .

This has been a total farce from start to finish. Now an archery range, will bring tourism and commerce to the community, yada, yada, yada. Bring about as much tourism as the art around town. Remember the promises how that would bring tourism and industry?

I dont understand why they dont put half the money that it would cost for a "sports complex" into the existing YAA. There is more property in the back for expansion, build some new fields in the back, then "remodel" the existing fields. Tear down the field by the road and expand parking.

The YAA fields are in such a shape due to flooding. It would take 2 much money to fix the problem. The land around YAA is privately owned and is farmed.

I would like to see new stuff everywhere. And agree that the YAA is in a bad state. But look what 7 million would have done at the YAA. Or at another location. This thing has been stalled for 2 years due to misinformation. The County got caught and the then did not proceed correctly. JUST LIKE THE SCHOOL PROJECT.

The YAA would need new board members. It's a group of friends who only care about their kids and no one else.

7 million dollars would help out any complex espically the YAA. My oldest child started playing out there when he was 3 and now he is 11 and he plays travel ball and he has played travel ball for 3 years now. I agree they could use some new board member however nobody wants to volunteer their time out there like the other member do. If you have ideas that would help improve they yaa then why not try and talk to one of the board members instead of trying to bash them on this site. And they fields aren't in that bad of shape they take pretty good care of them for it to be only 4 or 5 men on the board. Have you been by the Hanson fields lately? Believe it or not there is a lot of talented kids that have started at the yaa regardless of who there parents are. Again volunteer your free time like these people do to get the fields ready or to do try outs or to do sign ups or work concession stand or umpire or the list goes on and on and they do it all for the kids.

Newspaper today says Duncan gave update on three county projects ....missing was any mention of sports complex. Could it be he has found that it isn't close. Not by the end of January, or February . It hasn't met any other " end of months" to date, so maybe he has wised up. Good job Mr Duncan.

Is that construction permit no issued? If this is the best these guys can do, why would anybody donate money? Looks like somebody could do a better job.

The leaders of the county need to tell truth. Today in paper they say that someone turned them in for being in a wetland. Kinda like saying turned you in for robbing a bank. It's a federal law you broke. Then he says they disagreed and spent two years fighting it. Any company that does this work knows its a wetland within 5 minutes of being on property. Then, they act like it's not in works to be sold. Why were out of towners surveying the sight again?

Yep, the old money in this town always tricks/treats this city into building things on unusable property, usually abandoned strip/underground mines, releasing them from liabilities. One such area was designated for industrial hog farms...

Rumor is that l two different engineers told county that school property and sports complex were bad properties to develop but they didn't listen andbMust have found one who told them what they wantef to hear.
