    For the Fairground’s spotlight would another project be more visible, more helpful to the economy of the City of Dayton, more of a relief to the Premier Health education needs, more explosive use of the community offerings for Health, Education, Entertainment and Sports stakeholders, important offices like Social Security, more open for research with challenges to those from the largest percentage of men and women in USA?
    To borrow some stats: 2030: 72 million persons overs 65. 2x the size in 2000. 2035: 1 in 5 persons 65 or over. 2060: 98 million persons over 65. 2x the size in 2013. 2050: 2 billion persons age 60 or over. This is larger than children (ages 0 to 14).
    What can we say about the “throwaway culture” of the global economy? Can we offer a service as a team of Premier Health and UD with Marianist touch: Schuster Center, Victoria theatre, Arcade, UD arena (sports & other programs), restaurants, gyms/physical exercise/therapy/research, transport, student internship, national/international speakers on research?
