Is anyone aware of the bullshit that roger steele pulled last night in the park. This is what a got from a reliable source. In a nutshell, he threw some girl and her little daughter out of the park over her laying her blanket out to watch fireworks. I understand that he was ignorant to her from the start (what a surprise) and her husband told steele to knock it off. Steele threw them out of the park and had sheriff deputies escort the girl and her crying child out of the park. I heard the sheriff deputy felt so bad he gave the little girl a couple of dollars to get some candy and was embarassed over the whole thing. Steele told the girl that it was his park. Why the hell don't the people that run that committee get rid of that asshole. I talk to so many people who won't even go to the festival because of him. i know as long as he is involved in it, I will never spend time or a dime down there.

Did anyone hear this?

First of all get the facts before commenting. The reason people were asked to leave the park was because of there foul mouths. If she was so upset why did they forget the child, who was not crying.This all started beause they were asked to get out of another venders tent,and to move up their thngs. It all started out good till the foul mouths started. As for Roger, has anyone thought about what he has done for the town of Punxsutawney? No you probably haven't because it doesn't benefit you directly. I think he does an excellent job with the festival, so people can enjoy all the Free entertainment,including yourself. So please explore the truth before knocking anyone.

Reliable Source????? I can only imagine your definition of reliable....let my clarify the word for you....our tax dollars are a reliable source of income for you and your family to live off of...thats what reliable means! Getting on here bad mouthing Mr. Steele is just you being pathetic and miserable. You do not know the whole situation that went on down at the park, obviously! Your version of the story is whatever you want it to be. I highly doubt the sheriff was embarassed over it, its his job to deal with lowlifes on a daily basis. As for the child crying (it wasn't) they forgot the child and had to walk back in and get it!! I do feel sorry for the child for being in the middle of the situation (and for having those parents)but people need to learn some old fashion respect that the welfare office just doesn't teach. Mr. Steele and the rest of the committee do a great job and none of the free loaders seem to remember that they are the reason the festival goes on! As for your time and dime they are not missed down there. Many families go there to enjoy themselves and not hear the dirty language or be harrassed. So thats what I "heard."
