    Letter to the Editor: Unwelcome changes at Hilton

    Mid-Iowa Newspapers - Unwelcome changes at Hilton

    Noticed this Letter to the Editor in the Ames Tribune today. What's with the purple this person is talking about?

    Re: Letter to the Editor: Unwelcome changes at Hilton

    So, apparently with ISU gaining control of Hilton, we can expect increases in all concessions?

    I can't remember who controlled concessions before ISU had control of the facility.

    Re: Letter to the Editor: Unwelcome changes at Hilton

    If you go to the football game Saturday look at what some of our cheerleaders are wearing. It's almost purple in color or like somebody else said Texas A&M colors.

    But I believe the whole thing was addressed in a letter from Jamie Pollard that is in a thread posted earlier.

    Yeah more maroon than purple but still way off from what our football team wears. I believe some of the cheerleaders at the A&M game had this color for their pants and it didn't look very good.

    Well the letter sent out by Pollard today addresses this...I wonder if it was in response to this letter to the editor?

    Re: Letter to the Editor: Unwelcome changes at Hilton

    $3.00 for a coffee does seem high, but you don't have to buy it. The money is going to a good cause....

    It's taken me a while to get used to the new cardinal colors, but hey it is our school colors...

    Good letter to the editor, but doubt it will change anything.

    Yeah, they are. Against A&M, they were the same colors as the Aggie bench--I know, I was looking at them right over the A&M players. Maroon.

    Sounds like a New York City tax increase.

    Re: Letter to the Editor: Unwelcome changes at Hilton

    I actually wanted a coffee on Saturday, for the first time ever at a basketball game in the middle of the afternoon. Most likely due to the 5 beers and 8 tacos I had at Es Tas watching the football game. They said they were out of coffee at the concession stand, and pointed me towards the "C-Store" over by the entrance to the basketball offices. Between the two non-decaf coffee pots, I managed to fill a cup about 1/4 full. I just set it on the table and left. After the game I stopped at the gas station on Elwood, just south of Hwy 30 to get a cup of coffee. They had a nice tv there (not something you see at a gas station too often) and of course the Iowa game was on, and I was just in time to see the game-winning FG.

    Moral of the story: If Hilton is going to raise coffee prices, they'd better not RUN OUT!

    $10 for a walking taco and 20 oz pop. I was a little suprised also. Last year that was $7
