I have been reading all the negative views on the city of Carl Junction taking over the golf course.

I feel it is a good idea for the city to have a city park like the one in Briarbrook that has so much to offer everyone in the area. I wish they had one of that caliber when I was growing up.

It is not for the Men of Briarbrook. It would be for every citizen in the area. I just see the benefit of having such an area to be called Carl Junction City Park. I would rather pay a little more tax for something I can see than pay more for something I cannot see or benefit from.

We have a lot of children in the school system and we keep growing and running out of anywhere to make room for them to play ball or soccer.

I am a senior citizen, but I am looking ahead for the future of Carl Junction.
