WHO’D OF THOUGHT IT? NOT ANY SANE RATIONAL HUMAN BEING…

LET US SET ASIDE THE FACT THAT THE NEW COMMUNITY CENTER, IN SHORT ORDER WILL BE JUST LIKE THE OLD WOMAN’S CLUB AND THE ECO HERTAGE CENTER. NEVER OPEN WITH NO FUNDING TO KEEP IT OPEN AND NO PURPOSE TO FULFILL. WHAT THE NEW COMMUNITY CENTER WAS SOLD TO THE TOWN AS IS A HURRICANE PROOF SAFETY STRUCTURE. NEVER MIND THAT IN 20 YEARS NO HURRICANE HAS HIT WHITE SPRINGS AND WILL, IN MOST PROBABLE INSTANCES, WILL NOT HIT WHITE SPRINGS IN THE NEXT 20 YEARS, IF EVER.

BUT AS SPENCER POINTED OUT AT THE LAST MEETING IT WAS SOLD TO THE TOWN AS A HURRICANE PROOF BUILDING, SOME PLACE FOR THE RESIDENTS TO GO TO IF THE UNTHINKABLE HAPPENS. THE REASON GIVEN BY OUR IDIOT TOWN STAFF IS THAT WE WOULD NEED ANOTHER $50,000 TO MAKE THE STRUCTURE HURRICANE PROOF. AND WE DON’T HAVE IT BECAUSE OF THE OVER SPENDING OF THE TOWN STAFF. JUST SO YOU REMEMBER THERE IS LESS THAN TWO MONTHS OF FUNDING LEFT IN THE TOWN COFFER’S WHEN THERE USED TO BE SIX MONTHS OF RESERVE. THANKS STACY.

BUT IS THERE IS A WAY TO RAISE THE $50,000 WITHOUT ANOTHER GRANT? SELL THE WORTHLESS EXCAVATOR. I’M ABOUT TOWN AS MUCH AS ANYBODY AND I HAVE NEVER SEEN THE EXCAVATOR ANYWHERE BUT TOWN HALL’S EQUIPMENT STORAGE AREA. LET  US FACE IT, THE EXCAVATOR WAS BOUGHT AS A PIG IN THE POKE   IT HAS BECOME ANOTHER PURCHASE BY  OUR WORTHLESS TOWN STAFF THAT ACCOMPLISHES NOTHING USEFUL. SELL IT I SAY.

WE CAN GET $50,000 FOR IT, ACCORDING TO THE FOLKS IN JASPER THAT WE BOUGHT IT FROM. THAT $50,000. I KNOW WE BOUGHT ON TIME BUT WE CAN PAY IT OFF ON TIME AS WELL AND THEN WE WOULD HAVE A HURRICANE PROOF BUILDING JUST IN CASE A HURRICANE HITS OUR BELOVED LITTLE TOWN.  NOW I KNOW THE ARGUMENT FOR HAVING A COMMUNITY CENTER IN THE BLACK PORTION OF TOWN AND IT DOESN’T HOLD ANY WATER AS FAR AS EQUALITY OF THE RACES IS CONCERNED. THE BUILDING WILL NEVER BE USED UNLESS THERE IS A HURRICANE.

THERE IS NO JUSTIFICATION FOR HAVING A MEETING PLACE  IN THE BLACK NEIGHBORHOOD EXCEPT FOR MAY DAY. AND THE BUILDING AS FAR AS THE TOWN MANAGER IS CONCERNED IS GOING TO TAKE UP MOST OF THE AREA  NEAR THE SCHOOL THAT IS, OR AT LEAST HAS BEEN USED AS A SITE FOR MAY DAY. WHEN DID THIS PORTION OF THE FIVE ACRES OF LAND FOR MAY DAY TO PUT THE NEW COMMUNITY CENTER CEASE YOU ASK? FOUR YEARS AGO WHEN IT RAINED ALL WEEK BEFORE MAY DAY AND, YOU GOT IT, THE PROPERTY WAS LITERALLY UNDER WATER CAUSING MUCH CONSTERNATION BY THE BLACK COMMUNITY.

SELL THE EXCAVATOR, MAKE A HURRICANE PROOF BUILDING AND MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, THE STRUCTURE WILL BE USED ONE DAY FOR IS INTENDED PURPOSE, OTHERWISE IS IS A PIG IN A POKE JUST LIKE THE AMPHITHEATER AND THE BAND SHELL AND THE  CITY PARK AND ITS SIDEWALK TO NOWHERE. ALL OF THESE WERE PROMISED TO BRING JOBS INTO WHITE SPRINGS AND NONE HAS. NONE HAS FULFILLED ITS STATED ROLE, NOT ANYWHERE CLOSE TO ITS STATED ROLE. BUT OUR TOWN MANAGER JUST GOES ABOUT SPENDING  OPM (OTHER PEOPLES MONEY) TO NO PURPOSE OTHER THAN TO MAKE HER LOOK GOOD.

SELL THE EXCAVATOR, A NOT USED ASSET, BUILD A HURRICANE PROOF BUILDING AND HOPEFULLY NOT PUT IT IN A SWAMP WHEN IT RAINS FOR THREE DAYS IN A ROW. SPENCER WOULD BE PROUD THAT HE DELIVERED ON HIS PROMISE TO HAVE A HURRICANE STRUCTURE IN THE BLACK END OF TOWN.
