Trill seekers have every right to live on the edge of danger in their quest to get the adrenalin rush they require .
They should also have every right to reimburse tax payers for the cost of retrieving them from pine trees when things don,t go as planned.
This is not the first time Sky Drivers have required the tax payers to come to their rescue and it definitely want be the last.
I understand this is a for profit activity and that,s great.
I,m sure the owner would,nt want the citizens of Polk County to have to subsidize his business by having them pick up the tab for safety issues.
Be a good citizen and Ante Up !!

You're so right. If they have to have EMS at football games and such then the same should be required at these places. Nothing against them.

The tax payers may have to pay for the initial call, but if the person is transported to the hospital, they have to pay for the ambulance service. I happened to me.

Why should the tax payers have to pay anything for someone to have their fun?
