Soccer Stadium in St. Louis

For once the sports crowd seems to be going about developing a soccer stadium the right way. The Taylor and Kavanaugh families are putting their own money into it and relying on the city and state providing support through tax write offs. The bulk of the funding is private money.

What is interesting is that Kavanaugh was part of the previous team that sought large government handouts. It shows that voting no can work. Written by Paul Dribin

Soccer Stadium in St. Louis

Some good news. A new soccer stadium and team have resurfaced in St. Louis. The best news is that it will be privately funded led by the Taylor family of Enterprise Car Rental. The people who voted against city funding for the previous stadium have been more than vindicated. Maybe if communities said no more often to these hairbrained schemes, good things will happen. I do not think the effort at a privately funded stadium would have surfaced unless the community said no to the publicly funded one. Written by Paul Dribin
