I saw this story on the front page of my local paper. I then looked it up on line to see the comments that people wrote, and was heartened to find that everyone else seems to think these people are absolute idiots as well.
Nutshell: Millage didn't pass in 2 separate elections to install some kind of high end blue turf in a high school footbook field. So, last year, 5 families put their homes up as collaterol for a $400K loan to install the turf. Now, it is due in 2 weeks, and they have only raised $100K. So they are asking the community to donate - to save their homes from foreclosure. The same community that twice voted down this very same blue turf. Idiots.
