Open Your Wallets for Football

APP published a news article today announcing the groundbreaking for the James C Dwyer, Sr Memorial Alumni Park at the Matawan Regional High School. I expressed my views on this memorial back in May, but the project already had an architect and a timeline and cute little bricks for donors to buy and put their names on, so any comments were moot at that point. It's called being on the fast track.

How long was this issue available for public discussion before the architects and planners were paid and municipal officials recruited for grand openings? This foregone conclusion of a park certainly took me by surprise and I watch local news pretty closely.

It is truly maddening that people are ready to open their wallets for football and not for the schools.

    Football is much more important than education. On a football team you learn teamwork, and competition and.... uh.... stuff.
