fctrfctn 1 year, 6 months ago on Drury pulls conference center bid

Gotigers - you are correct. Carry it one step further. If the company that already owns a hotel right next door to one of the sites wasn't interested in $9 million in free money, that speaks volumes about the plan.

fctrfctn 1 year, 9 months ago on Airport tower on list to close

Back to the subject at hand, closing the tower at JC Memorial really won't affect operations that much...it will operate as a CTAF - Common Traffic Advisory Frequency - Pilots state their intentions and it's "see and avoid." It will be safe, just a little slower. The Tower has been operated on a Contractor Basis for some time and the city as incurred that cost. Face the facts, no matter whose fault, our government is broke and one of only two ways to fix that is to cut costs.

I think you will find that most of this expansion will be funded with private, not public funding. There is a press conference at 4:00 today to release news of a major gift. Also the luxury seats are already on sale which is how they will be partially funded. Like it or not, collegiate athletics is big business.
