Holy Cross Professor of economics Victor Matheson talks about how the city of Worcester has gone about funding Polar Park.

Holy Cross Professor of economics Victor Matheson is an expert in sports economics. He talks about how the city of Worcester has gone about funding Polar Park. Matheson says cities do not make their money back on building ballparks. He readily admits Polar Park is a fantastic ballpark and is wildly popular in these first few seasons. Matheson says the tax increment district around the park is not paying for the park as of now. Matheson argues that much of the economic revitalization around Polar Park was happening already or was likely to happen. So how much is just relocating what economic activity was already happening in the city? Has Polar Park actually super-charged anything? He says Worcester has enough money to pay for the park but asks if building the park was the best use of the money generated from the district around the ballpark. Matheson does admit their are intangibles and that he is a fan of ballparks, ballparks that are privately financed.

The panel talked about the Worcester PD in the wake of the Tyre Nichols video. Further reforms for the department? Defund movement was politically active in the city.

Big news on the food front as new menu items will include lobster rolls, clam chowder and tacos. Tuesdays – “Taco and Tequila Tuesdays” will see fans getting 3 tacos and a margarita for just $12.

Fred Taylor, President Worcester Chapter NAACP, spoke with us after the release of the Tyre Nichols video.

Fred Taylor, President Worcester Chapter NAACP, spoke with us after the release of the Tyre Nichols video. Five Memphis police officers have been charged with Nichols murder. Taylor said a civilian review board with subpoena power is needed and he favors getting rid of qualified immunity. He said enough about the excuses over body cameras. We need those body and dash board cameras yesterday. Taylor said he will continue to speak with City Councilors and hopes to have an honest conversation with the City Manager and Chief of Police.

Worcester City Manager Eric Batista talks about the development around Polar Park and explains how the city is paying for the project.

Worcester City Manager Eric Batista talks about the development around Polar Park and explains how the city is paying for the project. The City Manager is adamant that the city is able to pay for Polar Park. Worcester created a District Improvement Finance area around the ballpark. Money generated in that DIF District are applied to the park and that revenue offsets the debt within the ballpark. It does not pull away from taxes in other areas of the city.

Congressman James McGovern commented on the U.S. and Germany sending tanks to the Ukraine

The U.S. and Germany are sending tanks to the Ukraine. Sending the M1 Abrams tanks will surely antagonize Moscow. President Biden had previously said no to requests for the tanks. Biden said this was not an offensive threat to Russia but was necessary for defense. Congressman James McGovern commented on the move to the Talk of the Commonwealth morning show. He said all this comes to an end if Putin just recognizes the sovereignty of Ukraine. To do nothing and just give in to Putin begs the question where will he go next. He acknowledges Putin is unpredictable and that there is the threat of nuclear weapons. McGovern also discusses the most recent mass shooting and the discovery of more classified documents. This time in the home of former VP Mike Pence.
