"This funding will provide the families who live in the town of Paris with improved recreational facilities for their children and a gathering place for the community."Funding from the National Parks Service will enable the school district to improve the playground facilities at the Charles Street park in Paris. The small wooded play set, which is in poor physical condition, will be removed and replaced by a skate park, designed by the youth can the community. The basketball and parking facilities will remain. The grant money will be used specifically for the costs of site preparation, construction, landscaping, and for fences and signs.

Irresponsible I say! Adding to the deficit I say!
Campaign financing, I say!
Is it right to force taxpayers in 49 other states to fund a project like this?Just because someone has the power to steal your money and doesn't, is that the same as giving you a gift?
