Where in my comment did I state that elected officials could do what they want? Please point that out to me? I do see it! I'm stating that people in this town are afraid of anything new, different, or off the beaten path! This type of thinking is how downtown lost the mall! It's call progress and this city is afraid of it! We don't even embrace the fact that we are a major college town and do nothing to keep the youth here!

Magic1 is right. We should let our elected officials spend our tax money on whatever pet projects they favor!

Ok this was obviously a failed venture, no one could foresee the team folding! However, the thinking in this town is scary! "Let's not try anything new" " lets not take a risk that may pay off" "I don't wanna anything new or change!" It's sad that the majority of this town wants to keep the city down and in a rut! Sad really!

This happened to be one of the BIGGEST jokes for the City of Williamsport to bring in a Hockey team and place them outside at Bowman Field. Now with the repairing of the grass and any other damages this rink caused goes over the $20,000.00 us Tax payers will have to pay.....way to go to our Politics of Williamsport for ever allowing this to happen in the first place.
