Has anyone heard any news about kids not being able to use the park due to a new league or something about the new mayor?

There IS an issue and it is TRUE the new mayor has some issue with the baseball league's organization and apparenlty is refusing to allow games to be held at Asbury. Devilsaur, don't want to dissagree but you don't have a clue. You go carry on. I THINK IT STINKS that the mayor woulld would prevent games from being played because of personal politics or personal grudge. THAT Is the sort of thing that will get you voted out really darn quick!

"Mayor Chris Stanley was quick to try to counter the fears of the group. He explained that USSSA was going to be brought in so that the youth of Caryville could play baseball and softball for the same organization."

is that what OP was getting at? the new softball league? the one that has people assuming the park would only be used for softball?

the same subject that the mayor addressed saying wasn't true?

from what i read. This new design would allow kids even more opportunity to play sports ball.

unless your sources provide better info than mine.

"Emily Hatmaker, a citizen of Caryville, who has relatives playing Dixie Youth was still concerned. She made a request that the Dixie Youth be allowed to play at Asbury Park. Mayor Stanley once again attempted to alleviate the concern of the group by assuring them that not only would Dixie Youth be played at the popular city park but that youth could choose to play in both leagues. He also pointed out that nothing was restricted to just Caryville and that youth from throughout the county would be welcomed at Asbury Park."

added for good measure
thank you

I live up the street from the park and have not seen it locked up during the day. They do lock it up early evening during the winter but I haven't seen it even once locked during the day.

It is all Billy Smithers fault. He is the rude old man that lives across the street from the park. If someone is still in the park an hour before dark he will harass them and threaten to call the law if they don't leave. And yes there's been plenty of times I have wanted to go to Asbury and the gates be locked on a pretty sunny day. It is a public park, let the public enjoy it! And tell old man Smithers to get over himself. He never should have moved in next to a park if he can't stand the thoughts of little kids playing and being happy!
