    Roy... great points...there is something wrong when entities can seek money just because its there. Merit and need should be in the equation.

    Sent ithis before it was ready to go----anyway--the point I want to make is this:
    Every public entitiy seems to think grant money is like "free money"---find a way to qualify for it --- grab it and spend it before some other entity does---even if you don't need it.
    I think the grant money programs---state and federal---need to go away.

    I think this article says a lot about how local leadership views grant money.
    The mindset--- Watsonville was awarded grant money to provide access to the river so our city leaders think they should jump on the grant money band wagon. It seems there is mindset that says----find a way to grab grant money---even if we don't get the money some other city will.ev
    I realize our city leaders cannot change the grant money system and I understand the thinking---let's get the grant money---even if we don't need it---if we don't, some other city will waste it.

    I guess hood does not live around where he would like to put a park there. Plenty of room at lodi lake to put a boat in. I for one don't want people parking in front of my house all day so they can play in the river. keep it at lodi lake.
