so we shut our parks now??? what a joke!!! Seems that the 'People' in charge cannot even balance a check book for our state. How much are we giving away by leasing out alligator alley?? We do need some real answers and real changes soon. Why not do a story on how crowded our jail is and when there is no more room at the Inn where do they go?? maybe you could let them go to the park...

To save a huge amount of money, just stop lighting the County parking areas, turn off the "decorative" lights in all the County facilities, have closing time occur before the sun goes down, and turn off the "security" lights, too. Lights don't provide security, they just light the way for the criminals! The wild animals that live in the parks would be so grateful for natural darkness. Think of all the energy that would be saved, too!

there you go - a sensible answer to a ridiculous suggestion - close the parks one day a week.....

I work Tuesdays like most Americans. Personally, I see a limited downside since the parks ARE OPEN on weekends when people use them and generate revenue.
