Fix up Howard Wood field and move on already

Once against the Sports Authority and Event Center puddknockers stuck their nose where it does not belong with the SF school district. If you guys want to pay my property taxes I’ll let you decide what is done with Howard Wood otherwise go back to kissing Munson’s butt, golfing, watching football or whatever you do in your free time.

The district has budgeted $6.48 million for improvements to the field in 2010, Alberty said.

As you can see the money was already budgeted to make improvements. So what’s the holdup?

A proposal to build an events center in Sioux Falls put the stadium’s future in question last year.

Why? The school board should only be taking advice and suggestions from a couple groups, property tax payers and parents, not men in slick suits who get a boner everytime someone mentions ‘Vikings Training Camp’. Fix the field already, the EC is a pipe dream that is at least 5-7 years down the road.

I still say we’ll need a new EC, but the way these idiots want to do it is the complete 180 degree wrong way. It needs to be built with concerts and shows in mind, along with space for our semi-pro sports teams, and it needs to be put DT.
Building a dome for HS football and the possibility that one college game per year might be played there is just dumb.
I doubt this will happen until the economy bounces back and is in much better condition – not to mention the legislative groundwork that has to be done to get it funded properly.

Like I said, 5 years down the road and some logical, critical and intelligent people on the EC committee would help to.

With Augie building a new stadium I think it is just plain stupid to worry about a EC as a sports facility first. You are right, Entertainment should be the main objective.
