Bell: Team ‘McRuin’ Throws Curve Ball

The headline read “here's the pitch” as Ron Ouren, fundraising director, sought $3 million in private donations to build a new field on distant Cherry Hill to replace historic Legion Field at McEuen Field. Perhaps Ron, comfortable in retirement from his successful banking career, does not appreciate what is happening in Coeur d'alene. The wrecking crew from Team McRuin will be destroying scenic McEuen baseball field that attracts thousands of baseball players to downtown businesses. Ron calls the new field, the field of dreams. Sorry, but the scenic fields at McEuen overlooking the lake were the “field of dreams”/Steve Bell, My Turn, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Do you agree/disagree with Steve Bell's sentiments?
