Football fields: Have volunteers repair bleachers

Here we go again. Are you trying to play on our sympathy?

The questions are, “Why hasn’t the stadium been self-supporting all these years?,” and, “Why was the stadium allowed to deteriorate? We do not need some high-priced help to tell us what’s wrong with it. I’m sure that we have local people to advise us on that.

My suggestion: Have a couple of hundred stadium supporters volunteer a couple of their Saturdays improving the stadium.

And it’s possible that local businesses might offer the needed supplies at cost. Possibly this might help solve the problem.
