I was responding to outrage as it not being a RACETRACK, but always a Baseball Stadium. I was very sorry to see the Clippers go as we attended lots of ballgames through the (years 65). I lived a couple of blocks from the stadium while I was growing up. They never had racing there like they propose to do if this all goes through. RACETRACKS belong outside of the city. If this goes through, it will be the downfall to our residential housing. Who would buy here in Franklinton knowing that they will live next to a RACETRACK??? We are now making a comback with new homes being built and many rehabbed homes for low income families. What do you think about Mt. Carmel Hospital and all the sick people there trying to get better and have to listen to the roar of car engines going around the RACETRACK for hours??? What about the nursing home at the end of the Cooper Stadium property. That is the only one in Columbus allowed to care for veterans. What are they going to do??? I do hope that this RACETRACK get built outside the city limits.

There is a "comeback" with new homes in Franklinton???

And you think that low income families would not want a project offering hundreds of jobs and affordable entertainment for their families, all within walking distance?

Yeah, whatever. You should head back to the world in your little mind, the Unicorns miss you.

Have no noticed the anti-Kasich ads in topix today??

Interesting.

I wish Strickland would run a few positivde ads saying what he's done. I'd like to see an ad about the train that Kasich wants to kill.
