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.

Yes I have had concussions, three of them and I am over 45 and a female. I played competitiveRead Moresports and when we got hurt they just taped us up and sent us back out there. I am still feeling the effects of those decisions by coaches. But I had the time of my life playing division I athletics and traveled all over the US and met some great people. As for contact sports not making money, football is the #1 money maker of all college sports. I believe you are upset that the recreation center is using taxpayer money to have contact football teams. Don't the parents pay for this? Just like drinking we can't make parents make decisions for their children. Nor can we tell the recreation center what sports to allow children to play. If the program fills then it will continue. After all we live in a capitalist society.

"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.
