Over near the Rankin building on the north side of the complex, is an area that contains a horseshoe pit area, for the sport of throwing horse shoes. See pix 1. These pits get used for about 3 hours at a time, 3 times a year when the activities person Walt, has a tournament for members. The rest of the time, the pits are used as a place to hide food for the squirrels and as a dust bath for birds.

Now these pits are separated from the building by a large flat cemented patio where there are benches, and tables for members to sit on.
3 times a year these pits get used. RARELY at any other time, do you see someone actually tossing some of those horse shoes.
Now, some Bell View Genius has decided we need 3 of them!
Oh yeah, like we really need these. Where is the money comming from, and who is paying for these things? We do NOT NEED THEM at all!

And to make things worse, in Rankin 2, there is a HOLE in the ceiling over the showers, that goes up to the 3rd floor shower room. This hole has been there for over 4 years. They have money for new horse shoe pits that will be used 3 times a year, but they cannot fix a hole in a ceiling?!!
Is it any wonder they see this as proof of stupid administrating by the current staff of this place?
The "private contractor" that is building the pits, is using State owned materials, and equipment, such as the back hoe tractor.
Yet the home cannot get a contractor to fix the Rankin 2 shower room.
