JAMES MADISON QUOTE - 1822

"A popular government without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power knowledge gives."

Last night a public hearing was held regarding the Veterans Field Ball Park Renovation Project. The project was originally slated for  $1.1 million dollars. The original plans and communications were and are lacking. The results, an announced $600,000 cost overrun, the Citizens of Scottsboro cannot afford such a cost overrun. It has also been announced the Rec-Com swimming pool renovation will be another $1 million dollar cost over-run taking that project to $2,000,000. That was originally a million dollar project.
