This is a really cool program!  I'm skeptical I could get matching funds for the program, but it would sure be cool to add an archery range to our community.

Having a near by outdoor range is awesome.  The one that is near my house in St. Paul gets a lot of use by a very diverse group of people.  I see dads with their kids, teenage girls, groups of high school boys, guys up to 70 years old, and everything in between.  

I've been especially impressed with the groups of high school boys that I've run into. I've shown up when it was just me and one of those groups at the range.  When I showed up they were playing music pretty loudly and goofing off and normally you'd think aw man I've got to deal with these guys while I'm trying to get in some range time.  But instead the minute I walked in they stopped messing around and got back to shooting and apologized for the music and were going to turn it off.  I stopped them and told them to crank the music back up and have a good time as long as it doesn't bother anyone else that shows up.  Not often any more that you have a group of teenage boys show proper consideration for those around them.   

Having these ranges and giving these younger guys and girls a free place to shoot within the city is important.  Without access to the ranges these kids are off doing something else and the sport suffers.

The outdoor range I go to could use some new targets as some are getting pretty well worn.  Hopefully the city that maintains it looks into these funds and takes advantage.

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
