Here is a fact as reported by the last Recreation Board meeting that 18,000 people visited the pavilion festival activities this past summer. The pavilion is a big attraction for bringing people downtown. We will miss the Big Splash this summer as it will be holding its activities out to the fair grounds because city hall didn't have their act together. Thumbs down to the city for missing this opportunity to bring more people downtown.

I heard that the city charged them $400 dollars to erect a tent for the event. Out at the fairgrounds they do not have to pay this fee. The greed of the city has cost us in the long run again. Nice job commissioners.

Casino gambling: I guess we shouldn't be surprised that Dennis Murray and Kinzel are pushing for gambling in this town. We all surmised that is why Murray was elected in. Now we can go full speed ahead with a state rep that can push legislation. It is said that when the county is down, we have no where else to look for jobs but casino jobs. Can't help think that this is connected to the Marina District project to give it a shot in the arm.

I like the open thread. It allows people to comment on any topic or any news that is happening in the city. The bloggers can select their own topic and run with it. I hope you keep it.

About Stahl's coffee pot: The story goes back when he was first elected and he pledged to put the coffee pot on and "lets talk". He also promised transparency in local government. Four years later, we have shut down the coffee pot and the transparency with a no comment; we are not going to talk about that; E-mail me; we will get back to you; and we can't comment on that because of litigation. The whole city is in lock down mode. We, the people, don't get any information coming out of city hall until legislation hits the table and we are all surprised at just what happened with no discussion on the subject. Oh, and don't forget the many sessions of executive sessions. The best part of the meeting and the most informative part is executive session only we are not privy to those meetings.

The only way you are going to make real improvement is to get good qualified candidates to run for commission/council/trustee. That is what we are trying to promote in Huron at:

It is a shame when there are as many candidates as there are open seats. That is what happened last time in Sandusky.

We have gone to the Big Splash Raffle since it first began. It was always a good time, even though we didn't win. I don't think we will attend now that it is moving to the Fairgrounds. It is too hot in August at the Fairground, that is why we avoid going to the fair. It was so nice to sit by the water and enjoy the view and the breeze coming off of the water. What will they name it now, the Dust Bowl Raffle? You really can't "splash" now. :~(

I would like to know how much of Sandusky the commissioners are willing to outsource to Erie County government? Is outsourcing Pisarsky just the tip of the iceberg? Is outsourcing employees to Erie County the chaos Stahl is talking about? Is Sandusky planning on having Erie Metro Parks take over all of Sandusky's Parks because we won't have a ground crew to mantain the parks? What are Stahl and Kline up to?
