Raceway memories: Worth keeping?

Our editorial today urged County Commissioners to really consider whether a raceway park purchase is in the best interest of most citizens.

When county commissioners meet Tuesday, they should ask themselves if the best role for them is to tie up millions of tax dollars acquiring and refurbishing a motor sports facility or, instead, to stand ready to cooperate with a private-sector buyer who will make the investment, be a responsible owner and show better management practices than those who landed Spokane Raceway Park in its current dilemma.

I went to a race just once out there, as a junior in high school, I believe, with a boyfriend who was really into it. I came from a family of readers and TV watchers, so this sport was quite thrilling to behold. I never returned, though.
