How could anyone say that the Development of the Depot is gaining momentum? The LRA, most notably the Board members have proven to be nothing but a hindrance on the redevelopment. Who was the genius that though it was a good idea to man a board that is responsible for the development and overall success of the former base for years to come with a bunch of 60 yr old men? What does that do for our areas young businessmen and women? The LRA members are grabbing for lifelines after every entity on the Depot has failed that had more that 5 employees. Indians coming in to build a Casino and a hotel? Come on, the term is Sovereign Ground, they want it for free, they dont deserve that luxury.
What happened to the Training Academy that was training cops, soldiers and legal gun owning citizens? They where rocking a doing exactly what the base was made for. The paper said that hey where closed for doing things that were not allowed, training soldiers. What a shame. As a local Jo Davies county business owner, whom saw what the training was bringing in to the area, my mind was made up, Cant expect anything from the old Depot except freeloaders like FWS and the Fox Indians, and oh yes the Railroad entity that produces squat and doesnt pay their bills.
What a shame. The LRA has failed miserably the people of this community.
