Controversial soccer complex built in Kansas City

The new Swope Soccer Village in Kansas City is arguably the finest of its kind in the country. However, the $13.4 million taxpayer cost doesn’t sit well with some. Nor does the fact that the local soccer club, Brookside Soccer Club, will now have to charge its families an extra $20 per player per season and is $20-$30K in the hole because of the new field use fees. There is even a neighborhood that had been scheduled to get a sewer system built that has been put on hold. The proponent of Swope say that extra tournaments and activity will bring a huge economic benefit to the region. Read the article and see what you think. One thing that can’t be argued: It is a beautiful complex and kids will love playing at it.

Derek Jeter explains his class behavior

Recently we published an open letter to Derek Jeter, thanking him for his 20 years of class conduct on and off the field. In an interview with Today’s Matt Lauer, Jeter explains why he never strayed. In part, he says, he “never wanted to embarrass his parents. “I’ve always had tried to treat people with respect, the way I wanted to be treated,” the 14-time All Star said in a “Today” show interview that aired Wednesday. “I’ve always been very cautious with what I do. I started at a young age and I’ve always had the mentality that I never wanted to embarrass my parents. That fear is still there.” Courtesy, Cathy Rainone.
