This is an outrage about these poor dogs. I even read on craigslist about a monster of a man trying to give away his unloved animal. It sounded like he was some sort of a self-loather as well but why bring an animal into your own problems?
Just so sad.....

On BMX Move Angers Residents

Hey, you know what's really crazy is that we didn't have a any sort of an obesity problem with kids way before BMX even existed back when all of the mesa was open space and kids would build forts and run around.

Hank, you've been great at answering questions and keeping a level-head. I ride my mountain bike on the trials at Elings and love it. I enjoy that because it doesn't detract much from the open, natural feel of the place.
If you're getting booted from your existing space for another soccer field eh, I feel for you.
I'm flip-flopping on this one completely.
Before that was a park it was dead land. Then for years it was just a place to launch paragliders. Now South Elings has fun bike tracks and hiking. All of the improvements in the last 20 years to that area have been positive. Why not this too.
BUT, keeping kids out of gangs and into BMX? yea right. The price entry point of a bike is too high for that.
Long live Cru Jones.

tell you what Hank, if you were building Helltrack, I'd actually support your efforts. But only if it comes complete with a Kix cereal bowl with a spoon to jump off of.
To be clear, I say "we" referring to "the general public that uses the space currently" as even though it is a private park, it is open to the public.
I know you're trying to do the right thing but I don't see the demand for it. The 'build it and they will come approach' seems a bit backwards to me is all.
Whatever, good luck getting anything built in this town anyways, even if it is just making some dirt jumps

Yea man, let Cru Jones ride the Helltrack bro!
So we should let you have 55,000 square feet of public land for something that is currently only used 6 hours a week?
Posted on October 26 at 11:03 a.m.
can someone explain why they need to run night races and why the current track isn't enough?
Posted on October 26 at 9:13 a.m.
The current bmx track hardly gets enough use. Do they really need 55,000 feet? This will end up just like the amazing outdoor in-line skating rink at Earl Warren. A dirty mess that nobody uses after a couple of years. Once you get rid of open space you never get it back. The entire mesa used to be open space, can't we just leave a few spots open? Go spend that money on something to get bums out of downtown.

intheknow--why don't you just apply to be a reporter. that would be much more productive and lucrative than your current role as unpaid grouch and self-proclaimed editor
