Roanoke Catholic needs new athletic facilities -- that's what school officials say. So they worked up a proposal to use Washington Park in Roanoke.

Jean the other week we told you how the NAACP opposes the school building athletic facilities at Washington Park -- simply because that would mean the school could use it when they wanted -- which in turn could take away from the publics use of the park.
But according to Roanoke Catholic this could be a win win situation.

The Catholic Diocese would contribute 300-thousand dollars to the Roanoke Parks and Recreation to build two athletic fields for soccer and one softball field. The reason for choosing Washington Park was its historical significance and its location to the school. That way the softball team could move its practice from Wasena Park to right down the street. The opposition to the proposal has come as some what of a surprise to the school.

((Right now, the real return people get from what they put into social security is a dismal two percent a year. Over the long term, sound investments yield about a six percent return. Investing that four percent difference, over a lifetime can show dramatic results."
Under the Bush plan, workers could take a slice of their Social Security contribution - probably 15-20% - and invest it in stock and bond funds. The government would set basic standards for the type of funds that were eligible....NO Speculation.....NO day trading... The program would apply only to younger workers...For people at or close to retirement now - nothing would change. Gore: "Today, with Wall Street booming, it sounds appealing..." The Vice President today criticized the plan, (pix - stock market chaos) saying it exposes what should be a guaranteed benefit to the ups and downs of the stock market. GORE: "You shouldn't have to roll the dice with your basic retirement security". But a new CBS News/New York Times poll out today found THAT opinion was in the minority. Most Americans under age 45 favor the idea (62% good - 34% bad) of some kind of private investment in Social Security.
