Dear Coach as a matter of a fact travel games have started and several were played this evening. Second our park and rec needs to get there scheduling together!!! When you have a park team that's suppose to practice and you schedule a travel game in their space I find that very disrespective!!! Your local teams should come first in all situations unless its a weekend which local teams do not play their games then but I guess its like everyone always says its how much Ass you kiss and who you know. Third every bathroom at the park has been dirty for weeks now please clean them....oh wait Terry want get off his ass and do anything but gripe and ride around.

Dear Mom,
I completely agree with you about the rec dept. inability to schedule. I would also like to point out that the kids on the travel baseball team are local kids. If parents would quit stomping around in front of the kids and whinning and complain directly to the rec dept there might be toilet paper in the bathroom. I would also like to point out that the coaches who volunteer there time to coach the travel teams spend alot of time maintaining and working on the condition of the fields. I was there today and it was far more embarrassing that parents were cussing in front of 9-10 yr olds than having multiple teams scheduled at same time. That being said, there are 4 rec teams and 1 travel team and 7 days. Obviously rec management needs help.

Very well put!! The bathrooms wouldn't be so nasty if ppl weren't so nasty!! Parents should clean up after their kids & themselves in the bathrooms, it's kinda like a sign I once saw in a friends bathroom above her toilet "If you sprinkle when you tinkle please wipe the seat!"!!!

Amen dad but remember the travel teams do pay a yearly fee to practice and play and usually the coaches have to fix there own fields before games cause terry is to lazy to do it. Mom one day when your kid plays on a travel team you will be mad that you have to do every to the fields and still have to play to pay. Be glad you even have some were to play!!!!

I didn't see any parents stomping around and complaining in front of any children I seen them discussing things away from the children which may have lasted a whole 3 minutes till they started having normal conversations and never did I hear anybody curse?! I heard frustration which was normal as I would have been also. I know that the children on these travel teams are local and the coaches volunteer but as far as seeing any of these coaches work on the fields to help maintain them that must only happen on the day of their games or the days of their practice just as the park and rec coaches do also but that was not my complaint but seems to me that it is yours. In my opinion I think our whole rec needs a make over I think our teams and other counties should have a league where we all play against each other like a 515 league for the extra competition not always playing each other in a park league. To Coach one of my children do play on a travel team so I'm not sure if you think thats why I was complaining again my complaint is to the park not to the travel teams I understand both sides of the stories but as a park mom and a travel mom I believe one of my son's park team should come before the travel team due to the fact we don't use the fields as much as the park teams!! Now that is clear I understand that we should send our complaints to the park but many of us have for years and even to the commisioners office and nothing gets done so if it just takes me to type and let my frustrations out on here and agree with a few others in hope that maybe someday someone with some authority will do something and read all these complaints around here I will. But until then I will just leave my complaints on a forum because mine and others always falls on deaf ears everywhere else. As far as the bathrooms there is always toilet paper when I go. Again I'm just saying they need to be clean as in Lysol or Bleach that kind of clean not the paper and stuff on the floors type of clean.

That's not the point! The park staff is getting paid to maintain the facilities and they aren't doing their job.

Vandalism is a big problem in the bathrooms. I have walked the trail for years and I know this to be a fact. People throw whole rolls of toilet paper in toilets; just to stop them up. They have finally chained them to the walls. People actually wipe feces on bathroom walls(lower playground area) it has been there for well over a year. You would think that they could take a water hose and wash the walls. There really are some disgusting people that uses the bathrooms. If you are at home do you not flush the toilet after using it...... From what I can see Terry and crew place new toilet paper in bathrooms in morning hours, and somewhat clean toilet bowls. Now this is good , but a water hose to wash the walls down would be very much appreciated.

While we are on the subject of the park and crew, why is it every time they cut trees, shrubs, and pick up limbs they throw them in the river(hollies at pavilion ) or along the river bank. The county has a road dept, which has a chipper, couldn't they pile the debris up and get them to bring the chipper down and take care of the mess? I realize this is two different departments, but how hard would it be to work together on this issue? For all you baseball parents, next time you are in Meeks Park at Blairsville, just notice how much nicer the park is taken care of.

While I have been complaining, I do want to give one little bit of praise. It was very much appreciated when they heated the bathrooms and were able to leave at least one of them open during the winter months. Who ever is vandalizing bathrooms , please grow up.... it is tax payers who foot the bill to repair them, which probably includes your parents.

We are all adult enough to realize the problems with public restrooms, But by gosh if the person in charge isnt taking care of things then it would fall to his/hers superior, Which I assume is the commissioners. If you ring the right bell loud enough you will get results.
