Ketchum killed tennis facility

A third thing that bugs me about governments is the city of Ketchum's laying waste to the nicest tennis court complex in the valley, the Warm Springs Tennis Club. At least there is still grass on the golf course.

As I understood it, the city was not to provide a reduction in recreational facilities if the Warm Springs golf course was annexed. That was quite a few years ago when the complex was annexed.

It is sad to drive, bike or walk by the tennis courts with grass growing up through the cracks, a wasteland created by the city of Ketchum. Can you blame me for being bugged? All because the city of Ketchum was encouraging the building of hotels, although it was none of its business.

I suppose that the government officials' trips to Aspen found that causing such wastelands is beneficial to the community. Good thinking, Randy and City Council! Please stop wasting our money and resources.

I now belong to the Sun Valley Tennis Club, which is being operated as a second-class ski-resort facility in a first-class ski resort. (Not you, Mark Frisbee!)
