Good. Budgets are busted statewide, people are loosing their jobs, while taxes and cost of living continue to rise.

Why does the Government keep trying to spend millions here and millions there when people are just scaping by. Instead of spending money, they should be cutting budgets. Isn't that what WE do when money is tight?

i.e. Gee, I'll have to sell my boat and camper...I can cut to the basic cable package, forget about a new(er) car, and cancel my trip to see Grandma and go to Disneyland next summer...but hey, we've got a new community center to visit!

Not to mention the cost to maintain the facility going forward.

My only question now is: Who's brother-in-law was:
1) getting rich by selling the property to the town?
2) Getting rich by winning the building contract?

Ususally, that's why they dream up these projects.
