$700K for a skateboard park in Appleton?

I give up.

$700,000 to build a skate board park in Appleton?

What in the wide, wide world a sports is a goin' on here?

I keep checking the figure to make sure I'm not adding some extra zeros some how.

Nope.

They want to spend $700,000 to build a skate board park here.

Heck, they're talking $25-$35,000 just to study out a plan to do it....and that I believe would include some taxpayer money.

Um, that's where things get interesting to me.

If a group wants to try to raise that kind of insane cash for skate boarders that's one thing. But when public funding comes into play, that's quite another.

But still I go back to that bloated figure....
$700,000?
Will the jumps be 18k gold?

I'll discuss and take your calls on this at 3:00 today.

3:45-ish we're in for a treat as my old pal Tom Brokejaw joins us live to talk about Tom being taken to a hospital this morning because he was 'light-headed' at the time.

And Lips LaBelle is back at 4:30-ish with his Hollywood news and gossip segment.
