Thank you Rockford Park District. It was so nice of you to remove basketball hoops and nets so the kids could not play basketball. It was even nicer of you for posting signs that parks are closed. The reason you give is “stay at home orders.”

Yet, I can go to the grocery store, drug store, gas station, convenience stores, hardware stores, buy a gun or some of that funny weed and stand in lines 10 or 15 feet deep with customers. I also saw a picture in the April 3 paper where a local church was handing out food. It was nice to see the person handing out food was not wearing gloves or a mask. Once again, the kids suffer. Hope you don’t blame it on the teachers again.
