Wheeler Middle School disaster in the making?

This recent letter to the School Board sounds pretty important. I doubt that they will pay any attention to it. It begins:

Dear School Superintendent, School Board Members, School Administrators, and Johnson Control.

I have been somewhat disturbed with the school announcement of putting a middle school above Wheeler field due to the problems the site will present. I grew up on 34th Ave West and Second Street until my college years. My life included sports at Wheeler field in all seasons. This makes me very familiar with the proposed site and the conditions surrounding the site. It is not expected that you are aware of the site conditions so I would like to make you aware of them. I suggest each person take a lawn chair and spend part of a day at the proposed site to witness what I am about to tell you.

Read the whole thing for an eyeful.
