Is it just me or is our recreation department a big disapointment. For the sake of not specifically pointing fingers I will not call any names directly, but we all know who is in charge. Why does the staff have to be so rude and unorganized. I mean really if you know you gonna need equipment, order it in time that the kids will have it before the games start. And if you don't like dealing with people & especially kids, why do you want to work at the recreation department. COME ON. It's our tax dollars and parents money that is supporting this program. I see room for improvement. How about you Bacon County

I don't know why they didn't fire her rude ass when they had the chance. May be that nobody else wants it.

To Lucy - Thanks for your opinion, apparently I have not dealt with this person on the same level as you, because I have never had a great or even good experince. But Again Thank You for your opinion.

To jrspires69 - well said, thank you as well for your opinion. I am confident that this position could be filled quickly by a more qualified and nicer, people person.

The bacon County Recreation Director needs to have very good communication skills. Also, the Rec Director should not show favortism to the Girls Recreation teams. Furthermore, the Rec Director should support volunteer coaches by working in harmony with these volunteers. If a dedicated coach is involved in Fall Baseball, the Recreation Director should loan equipment to the team. If the Fall Baseball team needs to use the fields for scrimmage games, practice, etc., the Director should prepare the fields and do anything they can to support the kids. Even if Baseball Season is not in at our Rec Program, the Director should allow local travel teams to use the field for practice and tournaments.

No, they should be treated equal. No matter what happened in the past. Also, most other Recreation Departments have multiple tournaments during baseball season. The tournaments would make extra money for the Rec Department and would help local businesses, mainly fast food places and restaurants. If volunteers would like to organize a tournament, they should be allowed to use the Rec facility for a small fee.

Ask the surrounding counties why the don't care to play Bacon County Rec. teams. They will all tell you, because our program is so unorganized.

& to Lucy - I beg to differ, it has not always been about the boys. Yes in the past, but in the last several years the girls have played just as much ball as the boys. And I must say they play very well. We have alot of excellent tallent both boys and girls in our community.

Any one can use the fields for a tournament. There is a procedure to go through but it is available. I know from experience that it takes a lot of time and money to organize a tournament. Just wanted to let you know the fields are available.

She does do a great job. Her communication skills may not be what some people want but I know from experience that she puts all the kids first. She has a hard job because everybody that has a kid in one of the programs thinks that their opinion is the only one that matters. It is easy to be critical. How about some positive feedback and solutions instead of just complaining.

Has she ever been married or had kids? hard for her to relate to parents cause she never been there done that. And she is very moody.

She may be a lot of things, but she ain't a theif. She does collect the money and put it in Recreation, and not her pocket. Her integrity means a lot. It is hard to find honest Rec Directors. Previous Rec Directors have robbed the Recreation program blind

One thing is that she has a lot of duties and a lot of things to get done that a lot of these people making comments do not even know about. It's always easy to critize but I think she does a better job than anybody that has had the job. Only thing she needs a person under her to help her do all her work and maybe that would ease some pressure from her and make her be a lot more at ease when dealing with the people, which, by the way, everybody is not going to be satisfied all the time. She is good to take care of the money situation from what I hear she knows all the ends and outs of that Rec Dept and keeps a good set of records.

All I can say is this.... When my 5 year old says, whats wrong with that lady, why is she so hatefull, "I see a problem".. I have no complaints with the way she handles the money, but I am sure she has checks and balances that she has to follow with that. If more help with her responsibilities is what she needs, then lets get it her some help. My complaint is the attitude and orginization.

The problem with the attitude is she needs a man. I guarantee you if one of you eligible bachelors would wine her, dine her, and 96 her, she would smile more. Come on guys, take one for the Rec Team!!!!!!!!

As a parent of a rec player, i am disgusted. When we travel to other rec parks for tournaments or games it puts our rec center to shame. We pay money each game and they probably pull in a couple thousands. Yet our kids barely have the right equipment to play with but let the girls softball need something and Sharon goes about getting it. all kids are equal and that is how the rec park should b run

Craziness - Go to the Rec Board and tell them. Also, you could go tell Sharon herself. She works for you, the taxpayer.
