Fact: The fire board already purchased the land behind
K- Mart ( prior to asking the voters) to be used as a fire training center when Billy thought that alll firefighters were loved after 911. ( What comes first the chicken or the egg??????) ( Answer: Buy land and the public will certainly give us a traing center)
Fact: Using that land can smoke out K-Mart, the bowling alley,Precision Auto, Kum and Go, the bank, Village Inn, Big Mac's place, and if the wind is right, even the Public Safety Center and Cedar Mountain. ( Not much forethought there!!!!!)
Fact: Good job Dave, the truth will set you free!!! and the truth hurts. (Honestly!!!)
