It is true that Jerry Jenkins was unsuccessful in his attempt to build an arena in Prospect Heights, Illinois. It is also true that he planned to rely on a municipal bond, rather than bring in his own capital. However, you should be aware that, while researching the feasibility of an arena, most of the City Council toured the Boise, Idaho facilities, with Jerry Jenkins. Afterward, we had lunch with several municipal officials, who answered many questions from our group. If no one in Boise recalls Jerry Jenkins being involved, they must have replaced all department heads in the past four years.
