said, you never mention that a million dollars is gone from the Capital Reserve Fund and you also never mention that you gave $250,000 away to the Sewer Authority to sell lots on Brazil Lane. Now we turn around and we got a half million dollars committed to the Industrial Park. Now this kind of stuff needs to be brought out. . .when someone says I did this but at what cost. . .tell both sides of the story. Thatís my comment.

Eugene Kist said, I was very angry at the last meeting. You gentlemen there. .if you let things like this happen, you should be ashamed of yourselves. Iíll do everything I can. . you do not do this to children. Weíre in America. . weíre supposed to pledge allegiance to that flag. If you donít do something about it, youíre disgracing yourself, your grandchildren and your great-grandchildren. This is the most sickening thing Iíve heard in my damn life. If I had to join the service again, Iíd say go to ___. Those people who have their name on that monument down there would hang these people if you let them keep on persisting. This is the most sickening thing Iíve ever heard. You can take a damn prisoner of war and shoot him in the head and kill them and you can kill kids now. . itís a damn shame. Thank you.
