Now You See It
Now you don’t…
In broad daylight, the long awaited new Rules of the Playlot vanished. In NHNA's blog photo there are TWO signs, the new green one with the proper name and the second yellow sign with the RULES. Such simple, sensible rules like no one under 12, no bikes, sit on swings, pick up trash, etc. Just too much to handle on one afternoon. So just remove the sign and continue trashing the little park and disrespecting a whole neighborhood. We looked in the alleys, in the trash cans, under cars, but all that was noticable was more disrespect. If anyone finds the sign in their yard, under their car, in their gangway, please call the park district or 311 and report it.
No one seems to know right from wrong - it's perfectly acceptable to trespass into someone's yard and grab a gardening instrument with sharp prongs. This could have been an accident in the making...a bad accident. It's even more acceptable to start digging in the park with it.
We watched one youngster who (for a change) was in the park with his mother. When he finished his soda, he tossed it on the ground. Mother didn't tell him to pick it up and put it in the trash. Anything negative goes.
On our walk through the alley behind Juneway, we did find some criminal evidence. It appears a politician or maybe a lawyer had been held hostage in a tank in one of the buildings. Here’s the remnants of his ‘skin’.
We don't know if he slithered away and escaped his captors or if they just changed his hostage tank and dumped it in the alley. Anything goes North of Howard.
