City to lease land at 'Field of Dreams' to CCSD for new Aquatic Center

The Energy Capital Sports Complex will soon be adding a new sports venue in the not-too-distant future.

The new Campbell County School District’s Aquatic Center is going to be built inside the “Field of Dreams.”

Meanwhile, Campbell County High School is literally falling apart.

What an absolute disgrace! Who is making these foolish budget decisions? Has anyone been to CCHS in the last 20 years? We need to focus on fixing what we already have, CC and Gillette do not have unlimited money contrary to popular belief, especially with the followers of the Church of Climate Change's war against coal...

You should blame the Church of Economic Reality, since coal's demise is more a result of power plants opting to use natural gas which is cheaper than coal. And you might also contact your state Republican representatives about why they refuse to fund school district needs.
