Since my leg is healing I havent been able to walk over the occasional snow and ice to check out that Winter Wonderland of an Ice Skate rink. Is it being used? If not, is the city bound to put up the ugly thing because of receiving funds from the former All Powerful Exalted Princess Hillary? I do hope it is being utilized, but is it?

It's weather dependent. Winters aren't like they were years ago when I was a child - below 32 degrees everyday from December thru February. Now, we have many winter days when the temp gets above 40 degrees then the ice melts. City crews work hard to have the rink in use when the temp will be freezing.

My spies tell me that the skatepark is not being used. It is not surprising unless the school uses it during recess. I have seen the schoolchildren sledding but the skatepark seems to be just a big wet, occasionaly frozen spot on a wonderful city park. I wonder if the city is obligated to maintain the Hillary Clinton Winter Wonderland Experience because state monies were given.

IF 1 person uses it per day, the $$$$$ spent will be worth it, right? Laughable.

Reminds me of the 18+ station "workout park" the city built in the early 80's in Moreland Park. They built it in the woods. Not once did I ever see anyone use it.

Perhaps if the skateboarders would fix blades to their boards the Skate-O-Rama might see some use.

I remember how much more harsh the winters were in LF. Heck, given global climate change, I should move back to LF ........except it is 63 degrees and sunny here in Cali. Even the Socialists can't get me to move away from the climate here.

It's a very small frozen puddle with grass peeking through. How much did we pay for it? Why was a Hillary Grant even necessary?

Great point. The operating costs are likely very low. The liability insurance.........likely another level of cost. I imagine that her Grant was used for the requisite Environmental Impact Study??

Upsate Wizard makes frequent reference to his healing leg...even when it's not necessary. Is this an attempt to identify himself or is he trying to make it seem like he is someone else?

This Ice Skate rink was just some loose change the Her Highness Hit MY Head Before I Testify Lady Hillary Clinton threw our way to the "little people". Please vote for me, remember me when i run for the Prez. Just think of all the goodies I might grant you if i become The President. It is still frustrating to think of how many will vote for her because of "grants" like this.

Way too cynical Wizard!

You'd rather she'd done less for more people!
Then you'd judge her less harshly?

If memory serves...(check me on this!)
The rink came in 2003, from a special grant from KaBoom!.
Clinton is, or was, a supporter of KaBoom!
OR... helped arrange the grant from KaBoom!

thank you utlt, If the state has enough taxes to dole out special little "gifts" for political favoritism,,, then that state is collecting far too much tax.

Way too cynical...

Little 'GIFTS' are not always political favoritism.

You imply that there is always a Quid Pro Quo...
Perhaps you are right...
Perhaps every gift is actually a bribe.

Sometimes a gift...
or a helping hand... is just that... and nothing more.

Do you imagine that every GRANT which LF gets...
is a an element of some political favoritism ?
