A SIGN OF THINGS TO COME

 
Sources familiar with Hartford's Golf Course Task Force have confirmed for me that Keney Park Golf Course has been closed and will remain closed until at least April 2015. The source stated that the decision was made due to the "deplorable" conditions of the course,
 
Apparently it will take at least a year to get the course back in playable condition after the neglect under MDM Golf, the course manager contracted by the City.
 
I have not been able to find a record of any legal action being initiated by the City of Hartford Corporation Counsel to recover any losses or any legal action against  MDM to protect the interests of the taxpayers of Hartford.
 
 The source also stated that the rehabilitation process has begun as both Hartford DPW workers and Knox Parks have been working on the grounds aerating fairways and greens and applying fertilizer before the winter sets in.

What else is new? Historic Kenny Park is home to Kenny Park Golf Course. I golfed there and so did friends, neighbors, family and business members for many, many years. Everyone golfed and enjoyed the club house and outdoor cookouts over and over again either for fun or a fundraiser. What has happened? Hartford and it's FINEST politicians have always cut PARKS and RECREATION BUDGETS !!!!! Let private owners take over the golf course. How about let's privatize everything in the city. Hartford is a sorry place to live. Folks are NOT lining up to live here!!!!! People drive in to work and out. They could care less about anything else that goes on in Hartford unless it is FREE!!!!

Apparently Goodwin isn't as "deplorable" as Keney. From what I am being told, work is progressing on Goodwin and that course should be ready to open April 1, 2014

Goodwin Park Golf Course is in bad shape. The club house is a mess too. Of course the snow sledders will not help the turf either. And Goodwin Park is always used by many other town folk because it is affordable. Do not forget Golf is an expensive sport. Kenny and Goodwin are public Golf Courses not Private. Both should have been maintained properly. But the good old Hartford politicians could never handle money. They just blow it in the air and the Hartford taxpayers pay more and more for less and less. Do not forget know one wants to live here yet they will come to all the freebies. A great verse but...."I use to live in Hartford." Oh, look what the SCHOOL budget is...and many , many children (and parents) still can not read.

Interesting that the anonymous comments author can't even spell Keney (or doesn't have enough reading comprehension to understand that it's not Kenny) but claims to have golfed there with friends, etc. Also interesting that he/she feels nobody wants to live in Hartford. You're wrong. Hartford rocks!

Congratulations Hartford Fire Chief Carlos Huertas!!! It is about time the Mayor appointed you. Maybe he was going to appoint CHARLIE. The Mayor still has not made any decision about the second crashed city car. Both passengers were Hartford employees and one is a city Captain of the Fire
Department. Hartford residents pay their salaries and so the Hartford saga goes on. Why would anyone want to live here? Oh, it was a mistake...correct spelling historic Keney Park Golf Course.

Tic Tac Toe....Get a life...
Charlie is in...and Terry is not...
You say Terry can move mountains.
Then maybe you and he should go over that mountain...and go far far away, it's not over with Terry, the City still has issues with him driving that City car when he had no business driving it, he is not married to SKB, and it is just one lie after another with the both of them, hopefully Charlie in a matter of time can get rid of Terry, he is no good, never was, never will be, and yeah Terry slapping someone across the mouth , yeah right, if he can reach them.

Nothin will happen . Chief Waller is not going anywhere. He is here to stay. And every little mouse that disrespects his authority will be handled. SKB is still here, making the same cabbage, so dont hold yo breathe on changes. And a little advice to that engine co that talkin smack, terry is watchin and maybe will conduct a surprise inspection, so shut yo pie holes before terry puts your resume building into high gear.......

Tic Tac Toe- Terry can't do anything, he is just a D/C, he is not an Assistant Chief or anybody with any power, so he needs to watch his step...Charles is in charge now - Terry is just a pimple on someone's a** just like he has always been, and as far as SKB...the feds. are in, and she will soon to be out, so, Tic Tac Toe go over your mountain, cause that's where you, Terry, and SKB belong.

Dont you worry little mouse. Terry is here to stay. Time heals all wounds. He will staighten out your little issues and conduct an inspection of your little mouse house up there.
Deputy chief Waller is still better then u and makes a boatload of cabbage. Life is good to be terry these days. l

Tic Tac Toe, you must live in a dream land or something, or your just Ahhh about Waller...which I think you are! Anyone who knows of Waller or has worked with him one time or another, we all know what Waller is all about...which is nothing, so you keep dreaming about him and what you think he can do for you, which is nothing, because he is a nothing, so we have nothing to concern ourselves with the likes of him or matter of fact nor you. Keep dreaming.

Dont worry fire mice. Chief Terry has a list and he is checking it twice. He is gonna find out who is naughty or nice. But the difference is that Terry's size 11 boot is going to shine your rear. Ask santa for a gift card to staples to get to prepin your resumes .... All ya all going soon !!!!l
