Have you seen this article yet:

Just wanted to make sure you did so that you can voice your opinion to the city, county and state.

It is my understanding that there are about 500 athletes in the hockey program. That would be $56,000 per athlete.

Are we ready to spend that?

I’m guessing that accounts for maybe 400 families.

How many families live in Hermantown?

How many athletes don’t live in Hermantown? Assuming this ever happens, should there be an outside of Hermantown fee?

If we spread that over 20 years that would be $2,800 per athlete per year.

Finally, why have I heard of verbal threats of physical violence to citizens who oppose this spending of our community’s money?

What do you think? With respect, enter your comments below:
