I agree. Too bad for UC...but people don't want to come because of the cameras n police. No other town is like this. Get rid of the cameras n ur town will get more people to come. People from all around know not to go there.

We're gonna need the speed cameras to pay for more fire & police to protect the crowds at Discovery Park of Union City!

It costs about 6 more dollars than seeing a movie. You can spend an entire day there. The grounds are massive along with the spectacular indoor museum. For a $50 yearly membership, you can go as often as you want. Unless you are dirt poor, this is hardly an expensive outing.

I'm so sick of hearing about how expensive it is. Do you people go anywhere or do anything. Is it free? The same idiots mentioning price probably drop 100 bucks with the carnies at the Obion County Fair and call it entertainment. I am so glad we have a nice place like Discovery Park. It's well worth the cost.

Dear cops and first responders, we know that 90% of you are posers and lard asses. We don't confuse you with true heroes like those who died on 9-11. Issuing speed camera tickets is not heroic.

But when they put so much time into revenue raising and not catching criminals it becomes tiring.
