Nice! My kitty, Kukla, kept trying to get out to chase birds. I put up a doggy gate and got aRead Moreleas h. She now knows how to fetch the leash so I can take her for a walk. I'm probably the only 200 lb muscle man who walks his 8 lb cat! Glad to hear Spirit is safe at home.

"football is the #1 money maker of all college sports". I'm not talking about collegeRead Morespo rts. I'm talking about municipal sports. Why does the recreation department cost $10-20 million per year to run? The high school budget is also $40 million. How much is spent on recreation? In total, are we really spending close to $50 million per year to recreate? Including $100,000 tot playgrounds, $250,000 other playgrounds, etc. Seems expensive... Dollars that could be better spent... by me! But back to the point of your article: youth sickness. Tackle football for 5th-8th graders is in the LF Recreation brochure. You wrote an article decrying the booze-a-thon. You won't write an article decrying concussion causing, expensive muni sports??? Odd...

Programmer, you now sound like gun nut Dan Cox. Why don't you write your own blogs and wait forRead Morepe ople to comment rather than stealing this womans forum to interject your thoughts which have nothing to do with the subject. Therefore you are of no help to either cause.

Because I felt like it, that's why. She commented on one day. I'm pointing out that there areRead Morebigg er battles to be fought, not one day of boozing. And by "she" I mean "female" or "woman". And by pointing THAT out, I'm asking, why are mothers putting their sons in harms way by enrolling them in tackle football? The "subjects" are almost exactly the same, except Cheryl's subject does nothing. My subject will prevent brain damage, if I can finally get idiots to stop clunking their kids' heads together. And if you say well that's their decision, fine. But don't make me pay for it. Our recreation department costs $10-50 million per year - that's a big range. It would be tremendously helpful if Holeb, Keily, and co. would list exactly what we're buying, and give us the click option of viewing the report by department. I asked them to. Have you? No. You'd rather bitch about a day of boozing or, worse, bitch about a guy bitching about why you're bitching about a day of boozing instead of doing something useful, like saving us money. In fact, aren't you more like Dan Cox? The sound and the fury, signifying nothing. Ibid, your comment.
