McEuen Field Change Has Support

A small crowd gathered on the northern edge of McEuen Field late Thursday afternoon in a show of support for proposed changes to the greenbelt, plus the adjacent parking lot and boat launch. Darrell Dlouhy and friends masterminded the event to counter outspoken opposition to the Team McEuen proposals, voiced by Friends of McEuen and some other individuals. I recognize former legislator George Sayler (silver-haired man in right rear), Dick Stauffer of Team McEuen (partially hidden next to George), and David Groth (front center with silver hair and glasses). Anyone recognize anyone else? (Courtesy photo provided by Darrell Dlouhy)

Update: Darrell Dlouhy tells Huckleberries that the event was "short and sweet. Lots of good energy." Darrell reports that he "said very little-- mostly to the effect that we were the faces of support for the plan." Darrell estimates that 40 showed up for the event, including former lieutenant governor Jack Riggs, who estimated the crowd to be around 80, after a quick count.
