City health kick hurts local gyms
Placeholder Image
I've heard a number of moans about the city's decision to spend $150,000 just to find out how much it will cost to renovate and expand McMinnville Civic Center.It's sort of funny, in a non-amusing way, the city has to spend more than the GDP of Uganda just to learn construction costs, but I grasp the concept of architectural fees.I'm excited about potential Civic Center upgrades because I'm a firm believer in the power of fitness. Better health leads to better overall happiness. If more people made an effort to exercise and take care of their bodies, our national healthcare costs would take a nosedive.The Civic Center complex is this community's greatest asset, complete with Gilley Pool, Jungle Jym, walking trail, ball fields, and tennis courts.
