Moon Lake Park

While it is not news that the county commissioners have decided to eliminate all funding for the park, the rumor I have heard is.

It appears the county wants to sell the park to an undisclosed developer. To facilitate this, the funding needed to be eliminated so that the park would fall into total disrepair and just become a mill stone to be cast away. I truly hope that isn't the case but it sure seems like it is. If I'm not mistaken, the entire budget for the park is only a few hundred thousand dollars. Why not trim 7 of the no-show jobs in the county instead??? I can understand if they are just waiting for those people to be picked up in the federal probe but why shut down the park? It does not compute unless there is another reason.

I have written some not very flattering things about Mr. Madrack, the cat that runs Moon Lake, but that doesn't equal me wanting the park closed and I certainly don't want to see it sold for a pittance to a very connected (to the dems under the dome) developer. The county has said they'd like to find somebody to lease the park and charge people to go there to try to recoup their money. The problem there is that the park doesn't get a lot of traffic so no sane businessman will do that.

They want to lease the park to gas drilling companies. That is why they are letting it fall by the wayside. The total destruction of the environment in that neck of the woods will be the true legacy of Skrep, Vonderheid, Petrilla, Tucker, Urban, and Cooney.

Remember Skrep wanting to use it for gas drillng to create cash flow for the county last year??? He brought that up quite a few times... and is anyone connecting the dots here that a certain judge (one that has not been indicted YET, from lackawanna county) is 'connected' to these corrupt officials and owns a gas drilling company??? how convenient.

Good idea, throw stones at Madrak who has done a very good job of keeping the park in good condition and say little if anything about the dangers of gas drilling.
