You Said It: About Paramount debt, Athletic Pool and the business of golf courses

Each Monday, The Herald Bulletin publishes “You Said It,” a compilation of reader comments from www.theheraldbulletin.com coupled with responses by the newspaper’s editorial board.

A letter to the editor by Anderson resident Jim Ault urged readers to donate to the Paramount Theatre to eliminate its existing debt as a tribute to Bill Hardacre. (Article published June 6)

• "I would hope that many of the people that grew up here and have moved away and found financial success in their endeavors would smile favorably on their hometown and help to eliminate the existing debt on Anderson's crown jewel. I myself will be making a small contribution because I want the Paramount to flourish not just survive."

THB: The Paramount Theatre is a great addition to the downtown area and one that must be preserved. Let's join together as a community and eliminate the debt.

The City of Elwood is trying to bring the golf course into the municipal park system. Mayor Ron Arnold said Elwood is in the process of annexing land containing the nine holes and the Forest Drive subdivision. (May 26)

• "There is a reason golf courses are closing, money. Elwood cannot afford a golf course that will turn in to another park. Elwood cannot take care of what they have now. I would wish that the mayor feels that Elwood has so much money he would spend it in the city limits and clean it up .Or if he wants to annex property for tax purpose just don't pick and choice.There are streets in south end of Elwood that are not in the city limits so why know annex this ? Every property has so much money and every penny counts."

THB: On one hand, it helps with the quality of life in Elwood, but can the city afford it and make it work?
