After all the fuss and bother of this year's budget showdown, it was surprising to me to see the State Bond Commission, whose agenda is set by Gov. Jodi Rell, is planning next week to approve $110,000 to construct softball fields at technical schools in Torrington and Willimantic.
I'm sure the fields would be nice -- heck, they may even be required for some reason -- but now?
Bristol, by the way, has exactly one project singled out in the bond commission agenda. Its technical school is getting $10,000 to fix some plumbing.
