I've read Bill "Catfish" Reese's letter (June 9) concerning the racetrack, and his description of how he "worked like a slave" and "won the battle with Columbia County," that if it weren't for his efforts it wouldn't be open, and how now he welcomes everyone's support out there.
Now, I'll translate that: 1. After he failed to shortcut the rules and regulations of the county to re-open the track, Reese finally realized he'd better do things right and got his stuff together enough to pass compliance. 2. He now knows he's got a loser on his hands, and is hoping for enough "support" (money) to figure out his next move.
I further say this to Reese, the way someone I knew very well would have said it to him: First, I don't like his noisy racetrack and I hope he goes bust. Second, he wouldn't know a decent battle if it bit him in the butt, and I suspect the war is far from over. Third, he should go find something he can do well.
Something like, say, selling used cars.
