  1. ncr museum in Memphis-Community Relations-$3,000-who approved that ? and when?
    What was it for ? Are governments across our Nation as bad as our local three ring (Bloomington/Normal/McLean County) circus ?
    The people of the U.S. must shed their apathy.

  2. On CVB website said Taylor a was keynote speaker for Route 66 Miles of Possibility Conference in Normal in October. City evidently sponsored or co-sponsored her appearance at the event. She is a writer that basically writes about black culture. Good buddy of Harry Gates, Jr. of Obama beer summit fame. She has written books on Route 66 on places to stay along the route and one on how it spread black culture throughout the U.S.

  3. Just think, if the City closed down and boarded up the Arena, taxpayers would lose less money than if it stays open. This bill is another reminder that the true cost of building something never seems to include the cost of ongoing maintenance when it’s pitched by politicians. The arena is a lemon. Shut it down.
