Supports the racetrack

To the editor:

I want to express my feelings on the comments made by Joyce Seelye. (Article: Racetrack gets curfew on school nights, no time extensions without fines)

As far as the week of the races' opening day being a Holy Week, she is right: My family goes to the races every week, just like you may go to church.

And as far as no one spending money here, try getting a seat at Steak n Shake after the races, or get gas at Thorntons, not to mention the auto parts stores, Walmart, etc.

And if they would like to have a four-day show, the community should support them 100 percent.

Norm and Don bend over backward to try to keep the peace, but every time they go to the city council, they get kicked in the teeth.

Yes, they would be better off in the country, but they would have more problems trying to get property rezoned through the county

J.R. Eskew
