Parks enthusiasts, the town is open to your help. Fishers officials are inviting residents to help name the new town park at 101st Street and Cyntheanne Road. Construction began this spring on the facility that will be available for community use year-round. So, take this opportunity to have a say! Through June 6, any resident of any age may make suggestions by completing a form at www.fishers.in.us. Town staff will select the top five names and, from June 16-20, residents will be asked to vote on their top choice for the future park. “The facility promises opportunities for residents of all ages to enjoy outdoor recreation,” Fishers Parks & Recreation’s Director, Tony Elliot stated. “It is important that residents have an opportunity to get involved and name a location that will surely become a favorite destination for all residents to play in our community.”

In recent weeks, we’ve been taken to task for our “Republican views.” Here’s a concise summary of our responses: WRONG! People are quick to confuse conservatives, which we are, with Republicans, which we’re not. Well, we are, sort of, because the antiquated primary election laws force you and us to declare a party of choice. So, we hold our noses tighter than a C-clamp could and reluctantly select R. That has to change. We sincerely doubt there will be revision of the law anytime soon, but that’s beside the point. We’re for what seemingly most of the rest of the nation is against: less spending, smaller government, priority on justice and defense and zero self-interest at any level of government. We may be classified as dreamers, but that’s who we are, and that’s what some of our editorial comments in this space stand for. We firmly believe the two-party system to be not any longer what our founding fathers brought us. It’s drenched in everything we just told you we’re against.
