As long as there are children there is a need for parks! So, are we trying to get rid of them, too, along with the addicts, minorities, influx, low income, etc. etc. Wow-what small minds at work!!!

Well John, You're free to shell out the money to support the parks. Put your money where your mouth is. Oh wait, you're a liberal, you only put other people's money where your mouth is.

Put up or shut up. How much did you pay in extra taxes last year?

The most telling thing about the comments (and lack of) to this letter.

It's definitely a teabagger territory in good old Lycoming County. A review of all comments will prove that belief, for sure.

et the three previous comments show that the conservatives definitely place less importance on childhood education than the do on keeping their money in their wallet.

Of course they will deny that which is so obvious, but what is so obvious is undeniable.

Isn't it a co-incidence that this letter appeared the same day the city budget was on the front page? Streets and Parks is the third largest budget item, behind police and fire. Which one of these should be cut to provide more money for parks? I like a nice park as much as the next guy, but the money needs to come from somewhere. People complain about taxes, and then complain that government isn't spending enough on them. You can't have it both ways.

Billtown may have some nice parks BUT there still is nothing for the teens to do except walk the streets. Parks have play equipment for the young and paths for the elders.

I have seen crime ridden cities with nice parks.

While parks are not, they are not all that is required for a great quality of life.
