Vicksburg Mayor Shelves Sports Complex Idea

VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) — After almost two years of pushing for a sports complex for Vicksburg, Mayor Paul Winfield has shelved the project.

Winfield cited deadlines for local bills in the Legislature and "other political dynamics," such as the city's municipal elections, as reasons for postponing the project.

He told The Vicksburg Post (http://bit.ly/YPgYis) his legal problems, which include pending bribery charges, had no effect on the decision.

Winfield's first attempt in 2012 to get a referendum for a sports complex died in April, during the last days of the year's legislative session.

hmm...yeah, right. No sense in him supporting something that he/she/they won't be able to enjoy from behind bars.
