As we get tantalized but what could be, it seems the price tag is missing;

At Kuehn Park, while feedback still appeared to favor an indoor replacement for the pool, there also were many comments “where people wanted to maintain as much open space as possible, and it was way closer to outdoor at Kuehn than at Frank,” he continued. “So when we looked through budget, we felt like we want the ability to do indoor (recreation) at some point in the future, but with this bond, it’s probably realistic Kuehn will be outdoors.”

And how much is that bond . . . ?

Is it enough to cover the approximate $8 million for the Riverline District? Oh, Paul, we know you plan to shove that mortgage into the bond.


Recommended outdoor improvement reflect public input and include maintaining an area for sledding, rebuilding popular softball fields and adding pickleball courts, as well as a “Ninja Warrior course for a unique play amenity,” Locke said.

Yeah, that’s the ticket. Why don’t we build the course, and like the fitness park at Rotary we can watch as small children overtake the course as a playground with their unleashed dogs and big dumb cup moms.

I have come to the conclusion we should just make all parks for dogs and kids and ban everyone else. The takeaway is that only adults could use the rec trail. NO DOGS and NO KIDS. Cats in a bike basket ok.

Anytime someone tells you how glorious something is before telling you the price tag cannot be trusted. Still regret buying that Nissan.

    I have only one thing to add Scott. You need another SodaPop.

  2. LOL. The other night I had a convo with my 2nd cousin and how she is fostering puppies now in SF. We are going to talk! I am still skeptical, while I miss that little bastard, not sure I can be a bad daddy again.

    “Is she really your second cousin, or is she your first cousin once removed?”…. “You know, I once went to a movie show with a beautiful young lady”…. “Many asked me what was going-on….. I then told them all it was my daughter”….. 🙂

    Money is no object for this town. That’s why we can all afford our constantly raging property tax bills. #Naught

  5. “Is she really your second cousin, or is she your first cousin once removed?”

    Nope. Her mother was my mom’s first cousin and were close.

    “Well, then you are second cousins, where as her kids would be your second cousins once removed”…. “And Sodapop was a third cousin to those kids”…. 🙂
