Been in an out and observing from afar and ...norad had a good point.
Letís talk politics then
1) good job park district on the track around Wilson park. While I can no longer do agility drills around the cracks (and I canít run through standing water and silently make fun of wimps who run around it), I like the track repair. Smmmootth!
2) bad job park on the way they treat the Granite City Braves. Every home game they have been late to open up the bathrooms. The concession ladies have been AMAZING...the bathroom unlockers? Not so much. It seems they want us gone. I know for a fact some folks who made their bread and butter off of tackle football donít want tackle football.
NEWSFLASH: young ladies soccer has a worse concussion rate than football, donít see anyone trying to get rid of soccer.
3)Speaking of the Granite City Braves (who were out for the Labor Day parade and won best community org involvement), I AM BEYOND DISAPPOINTED IN OUR TOWN.
Weíre full of people who bitch about the future of our town...but not full of people who want to go about the doing.
I had to tell 5/6 year olds early in the summer they couldnít field a team and I had to tell 11 year olds, at the last possible second (because I held out hope the town would come through) they couldnít have a team.
All because we let them down.
4) FIX THE DAMNED TRAFFIC LIGHTS YOU UNSERIOUS PEOPLE.
5)good job on the road work by the baseball fields. Sorely needed.
6) WTF is going on with the FEMA stuff from the flood?
I think thatís a good start. All local.
/talk amongst yourselves.
