In my opinion NO ONE has anymore right than the other to have an area designated to their particular sport. Sterotypes are ignorant and NEVER apply to EVERY person that is a part of a group. I think the skatepark is a fantastic idea. It is a safe area for kids and ADULTS who enjoy skating or just watching the sport to do so. Now language, well I think we ALL could learn to watch our mouths, typically adults feel as though they have this RIGHT to use offensive language and that it is ok. Well I disagree I have a small child and am mortified by what I hear the adults say when softball games are being played. So to the adults, lead by example not by condesending self rightousness. WE ADULTS act as role models to kids and teens. Practice what you preach or quit preaching. There are not alot of things to keep kids busy and out of trouble here in Boone. The skatepark is a much needed outlet for the kids and taxpayers such as myself would much rather fund a skatepark than a jails. WE ALL need oulets!! Leave the kids alone! Can I get an AMEN!
