Does City Councilman Gary Bric have a crystal ball? He stated that DeBell Golf Course “supported itself before and it will support itself in the future” (Council defends DeBell loan, June 18).
How can Bric say with certainty that the golf course will be self-supporting again? But since he seems to know, perhaps he can gaze once more into his crystal ball and tell us when this will happen. And while he’s at it, also tell us how many more dollars must the city pour into DeBell before it pulls itself out of the red.
It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. Nowhere could that be truer than on the Forum page of the Sunday News-Press & Leader on June 19. The photo shows a lone golfer on DeBell’s links.
