Podunk Below the Masthead Thursday, October 15, 2009

City Council comes to the support of the gillnet fleet, Rupert is a Child Friendly city and the School District has a plan for H1N1, some of the items in the news cycle for Thursday…

Perhaps the civic leaders could come up with something a bit more concrete than a proclamation that Podunk is ‘Child Friendly’. Youth don’t seem to be that high on the council agenda really; more of a vandalism/law enforcement issue. A tent over the ‘Green Gym’ might be a positive step.

Well they did provide a playground for our youth (all be unintentionally one suspects) right in front of the civic centre, so a few more pictures of the young ones trying out the exercise equipment should help solidify us as child friendly, eh?  

Like many other proclamations eventually it will filed away under the “done” file, be interesting to see if there is any follow up to the council photo ops of last week.

Yes, and the Green Gym is perhaps a friendly gesture of sorts to those kids who cannot afford admission to the indoor facilities and are not eligible for the free passes that some adults receive.
