Sadly, to the average Utican brain, filling out a grant application and spending the money is considered "successful business" because we all see they couldn't do it without the taxpayer money. The media and CoC really and totally embarrassed you all this time. Who knew it would be this easy to kill this off. Watch!

We need to embarrass the governor on social media about this silly sports waste I think.

Duross went bankrupt a few years ago. I wonder how long this new venture will last before all the money disappears.

DuRoss has ruined every team he was involved with and his last venture with a Rochester indoor soccer team left him broke. He is a man with no money. He is a fraud.

Dave, I know it's hard for you to comprehend things but try and follow the bouncing ball here. The taxpayer money went to upgrade a taxpayer owned and taxpayer constructed building.

The building was in desperate need of upgrades, so where does one go to get the money to fix a taxpayer owned building...you got it...the owners...the taxpayers. No different than paying your taxes for the upkeep of your community.

Please try and keep up. Now go google something about the owner of the Canucks
