Why buy a golf course?
In reading Monday's edition (July 28) of the Soldotna City Council discussed the possible purchase of a privately owned golf course, I wonder how we can think of such a purchase that serves a very small group of folks. We have an ice rink that we are loosing dollars on serving a small group of the youth; for few kids have parents that can offer them hockey time and funds.
