Purchase a misuse of taxpayer money

There is no way such a small lot, the small store site plus small parking lot and not really in the business center and on a street where many businesses have either closed or moved to 3rd Avenue, is worth $765,000. The purchase of the 4th Avenue property by Marshall University was made with state money, not Marshall's, so apparently the price was "right" as well as unimportant. That the lot will be used as a parking lot in the foreseeable future and does not adjoin Marshall property was also apparently unimportant.

Theater does not cater to elderly

Don't take an elderly parent to the theater at Pullman Square, unless you take an electric blanket. They won't turn the heat on in their theater unless you complain. Needed to wear a hat, scarf and gloves along with a coat. The manager needs to try and sit through a movie with no heat during the winter.
