Back to nature

November 4, 2006


To the editor:

A letter to the editor Nov. 1, "Course support," stated "we should be happy that it was only $150,000 last year that the city spent to support the course."

I'm sorry, did you really say that? Surely you can come up with a better use of $150,000, (police, fire, even offsetting silly studies ordered by the City Commission) this year, not to mention previous losses and very probable future losses.

Sorry, Eagle Bend is an expensive drain to cater to the hobby of a small percentage of Lawrence residents and should've been given back to nature years ago!

I wonder how many roundabouts that would buy. I think I'd rather it go into the golf course than roundabouts.

A silly idea brought to you by the people who thought the free market had "failed" in not providing "sufficient" golf options. Obviously, the people at-large do not agree and vote (or more accurately, abstain) with their own pocketbooks.

Stop the waste and let EB foot its own bills or die.

(Think of how many Nintendo Wii's the taxpayers could have bought the children of Lawrence instead. Alas, children can't vote themselves spoils paid for by others' money.)
