Vail Daily letter: Fieldhouse is great!

This letter is in response to a letter written by Mr. Luhman regarding the Edwards fieldhouse.

Mr. Luhman, I think you should rethink your opinion. How could you say that the Edwards fieldhouse is a bad investment? A facility where adults and children can go to play sports sounds like an excellent investment, especially in an area where outdoor sports, such as soccer, can only be played a few months out of the year.

The fieldhouse is located right by a beautiful new high school and a large housing community. If I were a parent, I would love to have a place where my kids can go after school to play sports and hang out with their friends, a place that is right down the road from my house!

I’ve played indoor soccer for many years and it’s not only a great way to stay in shape during the months where playing outdoor soccer is near impossible, it also creates a fun atmosphere for people to enjoy the sport, get better at it, and have fun with their friends.

The semi-pro team will give the community a great avenue to see some good soccer and give local kids a positive influence to look up to.

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

Instead of spewing hate on why you hate the fieldhouse, what would you spend tax money on? I would love to hear your answer.
