Tuesday letters: Would ballpark be managed well?

March 4, 2014 

— I have no doubt that a well-designed, economically constructed, meticulously maintained, strictly policed and skillfully managed baseball stadium on the Bull Street site, with reasonable prices, would be a great asset to Columbia.

Unfortunately, the fact that the city cannot even keep operational such a simple facility as the Columbia Canal trail between the water plant and the power plant casts considerable doubt on its competence to provide such a baseball stadium.

Further evidence of a puzzling lack of competency is the cost of keeping open the Drew Wellness Center on Harden Street. I was surprised since for-profit competitors seem to be doing OK.
