EDITORIAL: It's not fair! It stinks! ... chose your own description ... but it is a reality for a few more weeks. As the city park improvements near completion the park is still off limits for public use (with an exception for the softball field). And to compound the issue for some youth, what was likely the first ticket for skateboarding on the narrow sidewalks downtown was issued today after years of warnings. This was perhaps forced by complaints following a near miss this week with a gentleman being spun around trying to avoid a collision with a skateboarder as he exited a downtown business. I not going to attempt to justify city, contractor or skateboarder actions but simply provide this information as a public service with the disclaimer that it is second hand information supplemented with my personal opinion. -- Ted Wright -- Friday June 4, 2010 -- 10:45pm
