I was at one of the original meetings for the Ram Community Centre when the Ram Center was for the kids.
The coaches were all asked what they needed. Basketball courts, wrestling room, referee changing rooms, opposing-team locker room and training room were some of the things brought up. All the money was to be raised by donations.
Somewhere along the line, things changed. Now it is a commercial venture with a YMCA, physical therapy, senior center and a medical center with a mortgage.
What happened? It is no longer for the kids.
I am not interested in stopping the Ram Centre. All the signs I read say, No Ram Center on School Property, so most people are agreeing with that.
I read on the Internet that I am a terrible sinner blocking progress and other unflattering names. All most of us are saying is that it doesnt belong on school property. It is a commercial venture being placed on taxpayer property in the middle of kids crossing on foot to play and practice football, baseball, softball, track, soccer, etc. Also mentioned is tapping the schools water supply and sewer.
But the main concern should be the safety of the kids.
