And not for the first time.
I indicated that Hockey interests in town got a million plus bucks from the Duluth School Board for the Hockey Heritage Center and that it looked like cronyism to me. Well, I finally got around to asking my old buddy, Tim Grover, about that. Apparently the money is to be paid out over a period of time and is meant to buy precious ice time for our hockey teams to practice. Yeah, I know that’s a lot of money for ice time but according to Tim its well worth the expenditure. I trust Tim because he’s a long time fiscal conservative with lots of experience on the Board. This was not as I thought a simple giveaway to Hockey.
