I really should not say growing problem, as these were the same
issues that were on the table twenty-seven years ago when I skated.
This is a failure on both the attitude of skaters and the government
of the city of Lincoln. If you consider the amount of money for
"signs" and enforcement of these, it would have been more well
directed into an area FOR skaters!
I know the city council is gonna fire the "Oh, we can't do
it....insurance reasons" It's easy way to make their lack of being
even remotely interested in the well being of skaters known.
There are at least 20 skateparks in the Chicago area. and none have
been closed due to insurance reasons!
A open note to City Father's "Give kids somesthing constructive to
do, it keeps them out of the police blotter..."
My music touring schedule, only allows me visit's to Lincoln about
every three years. I have noticed a marked decay in neighborhoods,
it's seems as if the life is being "choked" out of it's citizen's.
It is a sad thing, because Lincoln was a great town to grow up in...
