GO SHERRY

SHERRY I DONT KNOW YOU HOWEVER YOU ARE RIGHT - I CHOOSE NOT TO SMOKE AND IT DOES BOTHER ME. HOWEVER YOU ARE 100% CORRECT - THERE HAS BEEN ALOT OF "RIGHTS" TAKEN FROM US IN THE PAST TEN YEARS AND YOU ARE 100% CORRECT ON THE CHILDREN - I MYSELF AM ONLY 25 YEARS OLD HOWEVER CHILDREN IN THIS AREA HAVE HAD ALOT TAKEN FROM THEM AND ARE CASTED DOWN UPON QUITE A BIT FOR EXAMPLE IN SOUTHPORT, THE "HOME" OF THE 4TH OF JULY FESTIVAL. THERE ARE NO PARKS TO PLAY IN, NO SKATE PARK, NO BASEBALL FIELDS, NO FOOTBALL FIELDS, NO TENNIS COURTS NOR PUBLIC SWINGS. THIS BOTHERS ME BECAUSE WHEN I WAS GROWING UP THERE WAS A BEAUTIFUL PARK FOR THE KIDS TO ENJOY OFF OF 9TH STREET AND THERE WAS A TENNIS COURT AND PICNIC SETTING AT LEONARD & WILLIS BOTH BEING IN SOUTHPORT. WITHOUT HAVING A PLACE FOR THE CHILDREN TO GROW UP IN, THAT TRULY CARES FOR THEM, THEY ARE SET TO DEFAULT TO COMPUTERS AND VIDEO GAMES OR TO THE LATER BEING INVOLVED IN CRIME. I KNOW THAT THERE HAS BEEN ALOT OF CHANGES IN THE PAST HOWEVER ONE OF THE CHANGES THAT HAS BEEN FOR THE WORST WAS ALLOWING JOE MEDLIN TO RETIRE, WITHOUT HAVING SOMEONE IN PLACE AS GREAT AS HE, THAT WOULD STAND UP FOR THE CHILDREN OF THE AREA AND PROVE TO THE CITY THAT THE CHILDREN ARE WORTH INVESTING THERE TIME INTO. I FIND IT HARD TO BELIEVE THAT THERE IS NOW A PARKING LOT AND A OVERGROWN FIELD WHERE ONCE STOOD 2 BASEBALL FIELDS, 1 TEE BALL FILED, A CONSESSION STAND, A FULL SIZE FOOTBALL FIELD NOT TO METION A FULLY EQUIPTED PLAY GROUND AREA WITH HANDMADE BY JOE PICNIC TABLES AND GRILLS FOR ALL TO ENJOY. NOT TO RAMBLE BUT PEOPLE COMPLAIN WHEN A CHILD IS SKATING ON THE SIDEWALKS AND PLAYING BALL IN THE STREETS BUT NO OFFENSE TO LAW ENFORCEMENT, I WOULD RATHER THE CHILDREN PLAY IN THE PARKS OR ON THE SIDEWALKS FOR "FUN" THAN TO HAVE TO ARREST A "CHILD" FROM A HOUSE THAT THEY HAVE JUST BROKEN INTO FOR "FUN". AND THIS HAPPENS ALL TO MANY TIMES. THERE IS TO MUCH SMALL TOWN POLITICS INVOLVED IN TRYING TO KEEP SOUTHPORT OLD VERSUS ALLOWING SOUTHPORT TO GROW WITH THE CHILDREN THAT ONE DAY WILL LEAD THIS NATION. SO SHEERY I KNOW THAT I HAVE STUMBLED OFF OF THE SMOKING TOPIC HOWEVER I BELIEVE THAT YOU HAVE STIRRED UP A VERY VALUABLE POINT. SO THANKS IS TO YOU SHERRY RICHARDSON FOR STANDING UP FOR THE CHILDREN.
