    FYI

    Art Ashbrook of Pinckneyville has been hired as the executive director of the World Shooting and Recreational Complex.
    Ashbrook owns and operates an insurance and real estate business, Arthur Insurance and Realty Services, and is a past president of the Sparta Chamber of Commerce.
    Ashbrook replaces Ron House as the man in charge of the operations of the complex. House is also the IDNR's director of the Office of Land Management and will remain in that position. Ashbrook will report to House.

    My understanding is this gets a proven businessman in charge and will mean some major changes at Sparta.

    Now that is about the dumbest baseless reply I have ever read. You don't know the man hired nor do you know why he was hired. Your comment would be like me commenting on who Mr.Fishburn hires to do his buisness at the CC beings I have never met the man nor been there. Why not get some facts before spouting off with stupidity?

    grntitan, Longshot is entitled to his opinion isn't he? Whether you agree or disagree.

    There is a difference between an opinion and spiteful comments of anything related to the ATA!!!

    The complex is more than just ATA. Learn something before you speak.

    No trapshooting background was quoted just his insurance, and you all know insurance salesmen. But we all know the ATA and WSRC needs something done.

    But some trapshooting expierence is needed

    Looks to me he is just a replacement. But twist it as you choose.

    What is the "insurance salesman" comment alluding to?! Don't be more of a schmuck than you already are perceived to be...

    I hear the guys is getting $500,000 a year, a new gun, private lessons from Leo...and permanent 18-yard, class D status.

    Ya just can't trust those thieves in the ATA. They want to destroy the sport.
