Culprits in 700K park: vagrants, chipped paint
Now we finally know why McGuffey Park needed a nearly $700K overhaul: sleeping vagrants and chipping paint, according to this morning's Daily Progress. While I never saw a sleeping vagrant there (and I took my kids at least a dozen times), now I know how to mobilize almost three quarters of million dollars: just get a "vagrant" to snooze somewhere. Oh, and cut back on surface prep when painting your merry-go-round. My kids loved that paint-challenged merry-go-round, but will they love the spicas and other futuristic toys built by a company called Kompan? That is the seven hundred thousand dollar question.
