There are alot of kids that skate,they get tickets for it.The mayor can get the old car show but nonthing for the kids.Give them a place they are not all bad kids.That is why there is kids on drugs and drink THEY HAVE NONTHING TO DO WITH OUT COPS GIVING TICKETS.

We should build a skate park so the kids will have a place to go and smoke pot and drink beer.

Herrin has a lovely skatepark.. just visited it lastnight actually.. also Salem. When I was younger I made Wsiltv 3 news.. Myself & a few buddies took the time to get a petition with over 500+ signatures.. We made it to the City Hall where we were rejected because "it would cost too much to build".. End of Story.

I remember that. I was one of the people who said in the comments on the news "We have sidewalks that you can't even walk down in Benton and these kids want the taxpayers to build them a skate park?"
More snot-nosed kids with no sense of money or reality. Oh, you got a petition signed? Well, I think I'll get a petition signed for the city to give me $5,000,000 on the promise that I'll give every signer $25.

What you fail to understand is that tax dollars don't just magically appear. It is money stolen by the government from people who work. The Benton City Hall doesn't print their own cash.
