Dean Williams, CBJ and Arete Construction did a great job to get us a new surface on our tennis courts in Cope Park. They're bright red and green, totally gorgeous. The surface is deliciously toothy and an absolute delight for our feet. So skateboards please stay off of the tennis courts. They cost $30,000 and if you skateboard there like you are used to, you will ruin them and the pleasure we take in our tennis. Also the police department is on red alert because skateboarding on tennis courts is vandalism. And parents of skateboarder, please show them this.
(Today's comment repeats and corrects the version that ran Tuesday in which the name of the construction company was mis- spelled.)
