Why are things so disorganized, and as much as we pay for our kids to play why is there no equipment for the coaches to use I know some coaches who are buying their own equipment. I would like to also say thanks to the coaches for their time especially the ones who are coaching more then one team.

It was my understanding that the taxpayers were paying a park director $30,000, now you say the taxpayers should get out and do his work.

I dont know who is getting paid or not paid,just saying that the people that usually do most of the complaining dont volunteer a minute of there lives!!!If indeed there is a park director the best thing we can do is find out exactly what is his job scope and what exactly he is responsible for and make sure that he carries out his duties.If it is found that he is slacking and just taking tax payer money then we should complain to the mayor and city council.With that being said no matter who the park director is he cant do it all by himself,we need good people to coach and mentor our youth.I am in my fifties now and i still remember and appreciate my little league coach for his kindness and time that he volunteered to coach us.His small role in my life has been such a positive influence to me!!!

Again those were the days when there was not all this money being spent. The forefathers got a piece of land and made the best of it. Men of this community have always given there time now in the modern world we live in its bigger and better does it matter on how kids feel or play indeed not. Give a kid a bat ball and let them play in a open field and he is a happy camper.

When i was a kid this wonderful man by the name of Oscar Beaugh volunteered all his time to umpire every game and take care of the field,what a wonderful example of a passionate human being.These are the type of people this town needs more of!!!!!!!!!!Praise Jesus,God Almighty maker of heaven and earth,i am sure Mr. Oscar has a spot with the almighty God!!!!!!!

Yes that is what your problem is letting kids have fun and not who can bet who, a piece of land is how this program started To volunter is a good thing but we are not talking about the same program you have to pay to go a game so where is this money going. If Church Point wants to be like the big dogs they need to hire and pay umps been dome else where for years. remember they are collecting money. Oh go ahead and volunteer why dont you get the city council to help out too in years pass sure there were some that did even remember former Mayor Harold Beaugh climbed poles to put up lites on Keller St park.

Let me see if I understand this program you want me to pay for my child to play, then you want me to pay to watch my child play, then you want me to give my time gee you must work for the Gov If the ones that are giving their time to help out maybe they should not have to pay for their child to play them it would be a fair program. Oh by the way where is all this extra money that was promised to the park going. They sure have enough workers paid by taxpayers there seems to be a major problem We pay them to do what exactly the park is the same as its been and we never had a problem before.

I am not saying that your complaints are not legitimate.I am just saying that if something crooked is going on ,there are ways to find out.If there is a person or persons doing something wrong, they will not come and confess to you,you need to go to the council meetings and state your grievances and get an explanation. Now as for volunteers,volunteers will always be needed no matter what.I was just saying thank god that when i grew up there were fine people like MR.Oscar and there still are fine people here in this community.The baseball coaches here dont get paid one red cent and for this i want to thank them for there time and say god bless all the good people that take time to volunteer on behalf of the Church Point youth!!!!!!!
