What bothers me is that he's on "leave" "light duty" because of some injury, however, he looks like he's in quite good shape - working out at the ACE of Clubs. So, if he can't work because of an injury, then how is he going to be an effective Sheriff?
Looks like his knee doesn't hurt too bad - see him working out at the ACE of CLUBS all of the time.
Personally, I think he's taking advantage of the system. I agree with NewInWW and Carcrazy.
Also don't think you need to "call someone" to get the real story. Stories can get changed - remember the gossip game at parties. So, if he's really got a story to tell then he needs to put it in black and white for all to see. Feels like he is hiding something by not putting it on his website.
If anyone is playing politics it's Cooper - hiding things, just like the rest of the politicians.
A pool for swim meets is great and a zero entry pool for tots too - BUT - it MUST have a DIVING BOARD AND SLIDE(s). The old pool used to have a high dive - that's a huge hit a the Pendleton pool - why not put that back in.
The Facilities Task Force are in NO WAY experts on anything!!!!!!! They are a hand picked group of people by the Board and WWSD to make the community "think" they are listening - when in fact - they are just a ribbon on a package and the WWSD and the Board are going to do what they want - regardless of what this group thinks. Furthermore, the Task Force has proven time and time again to be ineffective in getting anything done. It's time to get rid of the Task Force and move on. They clearly are NOT in touch with the community. Their research - pish-posh - anyone can do research to "support" what they want to accomplish - that's why it's called research - you have to find facts to support your theory. What people don't do is the research that says "there is a better and more economical way" - instead the school officials spend money they don't have. Simplistic cheap solutions - no one is asking for "cheap" they are asking them to live in a real budget. I've been to meetings, I've done my research and the money they just spent on the Wifi - was ridiculous - could have done it for half the cost! Is it needed, YES - for that cost - NO! But, again, I'm sure they had to hire some UNION to do the job - so right there it quadruples the cost.
But, give me a break - what marketing campaign? Signs and posters do not make a campaign! They didn't want to make it work or they would have really tried - even tried to fix it up. It's amazing what some fresh paint can do. They wanted it to fail.
People didn't come for so many reasons - here's a few: Horrible bathrooms, broken bleachers, dirty facility, no food (chips don't count), dated skates, uninviting facility, I could go on.
If they had wanted it to succeed they should have tried. But if you don't put in the effort (on anything in life) it will fail. That is why it failed.
Sometimes you have to spend money to make money.
Shame on the YWCA and it's Board for not really trying. LAZY!!!
I'm so disappointed in you all. I certainly will no longer donate to you and that goes double for my family and their families. Shame on you.
They only can't happen because of UNIONS! Get rid of UNION paid work and it CAN happen.
I think Mr. Filan's letter was well written and spot-on. We all think it, no one is willing to say it. Well said Vern.
While I agree that Mr. Filan may be against these bonds, his point on his letter had nothing to do with being against of for it. His point was that the Super Indendents have been hired to help pass a bond, so why not save the money and hire a new SI until the Edison bond is paid off.
No, the reality is they DON'T have to use a UNION to pay for the job - if the Union would step aside and allow an outside contractor to come in they job can get done for much less.
"Strenuously" disagree - LOL. Don't hurt yourself.
