Fiddy grand for naming rights....That's what the city wants to put your name on the Fairgrounds Arena. The Wolves are selling your name on the Zamboni for $15K this year, according to their advertising price list. They are selling about every inch they can of space they can find and that's understandable.
I am sure the hockey season will be enjoyed, but getting more events there is a key as well. So far that's not been the case.
Oh, and the approval for the name is given to the city manager. Does representative government exist anymore ? A lawmaker told me this week he learned the City is suing the fire union by reading it in the paper. Sometimes I wonder if we need or want a City Council.
