15 Firms Rush In To Run City Golf

From an attendee, a professional local CPA - "If you are concerned about the future of FEGC, we urge you to take a few minutes to read the article below. It was posted to the internet on October 24, the day after Tucson City Council approved Manager's recommendation to put FEGC on a path to closure. This blog article looks at FY's 2000 - 2012. Part of Manager's recommendation, approved, is to close El Rio and move the entire property to Parks & Rec. The plan is to keep the First Tee and reconfigure as a "family learning center". This is a huge plus for City Golf. Of Golf's operating losses (before debt service) of $1.738 million over the past 3 fiscal years, El Rio's losses were $1.381 million, or 79.5% of the total loss."

Fred W. Enke and Joe Batiste might have been the most versatile athletes in southern Arizona history. Enke was named all-state in football, basketball and baseball at Tucson High in the 1940s – and starred in all three sports at the University of Arizona before playing in the NFL http://tucsoncitizen.com/morgue/tag/michael-schmelzle/
