Army training base: public meeting

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is building a 25-acre military training center in Middletown. Where should it be built? How will it affect our community? Why is this happening? What can we do?

For those who want to experience the interface of Middletown residents and federal power firsthand, there is a public meeting Wednesday night at 6:30 at Mercy High School, located at 1740 Randolph Road. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Louisville District, will discuss the site suggestions submitted to them by members of the Middletown community.

If you would like to attend and need a ride, please contact me as soon as possible at jlaselva@wes. Include your name and phone number.

Date: Wednesday, Sept. 17
Time: 6:30 PM
Location: Mercy High School (1740 Randolph Road)

    The Army doesn’t live in Middletown either and they are more than willing to permanently impact the local community. Protecting a unique habitat is anybody’s concern.

    You can donate to the community in other ways that don’t have long-term effects on people’s choices, such as joining the army. Go tutor, assist the homeless, these are important donations to the Middletown community that students can make while we, as a collective student body, most of us not from the area, are here. I, personally, am not willing to distort another person’s choice when, really, it is not my choice. It’s the same reason I, a Centrist, or a classic Wesliberal from Berkeley or somewhere else, shouldn’t come to Wes and vote and potentially distort the wants and needs of the people who live here.Obviously, that last part does not apply to you 1:41. The whole Middletown area residents thing did indeed slip my mind and I apologize for that.

    some students (like myself) are middletown-area residents. furthermore, wes students still live in middletown for most of the year, some of them year round. its your sort of attitude that makes residents think we’re some pretentious kids up on the hill who don’t give a shit about the community.

    It isn’t students’ fucking business whether or not there’s an Army training center in the area – leave that up to the Middletown area residents.
