When a New Mexico city began talking about charging children $5 to play in sports leagues that use municipal fields, a local auto dealer stepped in.
Gary Hamilton, the owner of Hamilton Auto Group, told the Clovis parks committee that he would foot the bill for every child in town. He estimated that it would cost him $30,000 to $60,000 a year.
"If it was $100,000 a year, I'd still do it," he told The Eastern New Mexico News. "It's the right thing to do."
