So, to break this down a bit. The WECRD had $2,197.21 to pay a person to clean their offices. The WECRD had $1,833.15 to spend on AFAD 2009. The WECRD had $250.00 for a membership (Gold Patronage) to give to the MH Arts Council---BUT VERY LITTLE FOR THE YOUTH OF OUR COMMUNITY! The WECRD received $416,122.41 in tax revenue and "donated" a mere $295.00 towards ACTUAL recreation for this last fiscal year! They "donated" back to the community the following:
MH Parks & Recreation: $95.00 (Summer Concert)
MH Parks & Recreation: $95.00 (Sponsorship of "pool party")
MH Arts Council: $250.00 ("Gold" Patronage Membership)
MHHS: $200.00 (this wasa $600.00 donation to cover three (3) years.
DECLINED Donation Requests:
MHHS (Spring 2009) because they had already dontated as indicated above.
David Freer/Elmore County Youth Baseball: REQUESTED 10% of WECRD budget for ALL youth activity programs---not just ECYB. THE WECRD DONATED NOTHING!!!
City of MH- Request made by Councilman Geoff Schroeder and Russ Anderson to partner with the City of MH on a walking path directly across the street from the WECRD property (at the MHJHS). DECLINED or did not respond.
A bit offensive to the hard working, taxpayers of Elmore County? I certainly hope so. This recreation district was created to support the people of this community---in RECREATION! Well, it would appear that it is a recreation district that mostly supports the arts, which is against the law under the laws with respect to a recreation district and what a recreation district can or cannot do. Kind of like charging a member of the public $70.00 for "labor" for 42 pieces of paper containing mostly current financial information.

I have lived in Mountain Home for over 11 years now. I love to be outdoors in wide open spaces (as long as it does not involve camping...in a tent and an out house). I dislike Government waste/abuse of tax dollars and "sky is the limit" spending by those that we elect to represent "us." I value free speech when what is stated is factual (as opposed to lies, gossip and un-truths). I love the Chicago White Sox (I never said I was perfect) and the Broncos are okay too! I am 38 years old and married to a guy who is active duty USAF (and a Cubs fan...he is the "perfect" one). I am anti-nuclear and against further desecration of our planet with waste that we can do little to nothing with. If you dislike blunt, this is not the blog for you. Enjoy!
