  1. this is a slap in the face to mountain view seniors. the tribune herald had a big front page august 24, 2005 that the senior center received 350,000$ for bathrooms, kitchens. instead they tie this kiddie playground to the handicap ramp of the senior center. billy kenoi was sent a letter with at least 40-50 seniors signitures and NO response what so ever. where did that money go?? why did a playground get built instead?? 219,000$ for a jungle-gym?????? someone should be embarassed for the money spent and the senior center money disappearing after the big announcement and kudos on front page of paper then nothing after seniors waiting since 2005!!!!!!
