Here we go again - encouraging more graft and corruption! If we are told that it will be 5 million - the truth will be 2.5 million and out of that the Catholic church will get their cut for the absolution of the thieves sins for stealing. The start should be to straighten out Panama and DUMP the bishop, get sex education into the schools and what the previous person wrote and then if there is anything left over - spend it on sports.

No, no,NO. Our money should not be used to build new sports stadiums. We need improvement to our water system. Some people still live without indoor toilets! Our school system needs a overhaul - we are dumming our kids down with this old educational system that can gain to focus on critical thinking skills. What is also needed is the creation of long term jobs- not jobs like building stadiums that last a few years. I could go on... The article also mentioned the English will help to finance... Nothing is free, especially from Europeans. What will be the hidden cost to Panama and Panamanians
