Inquiring about abandoned equipment at Rosemont Ridge, and does West Linn need Oppenlander for sports?

Someone should remove abandoned equipment

So what is the deal with abandoned and broken sports equipment at the Rosemont Ridge Middle School track and fields? I get the litter, candy wrappers and masks, because kids are back and this is great. But there are two broken lacrosse nets just laying around and then the football blocking sled abandoned over five years ago. It was just tipped over and pushed up against a fence. I understand it is heavy but its steel plates are rising out of the weeds less than six inches from the track. This does seem like a safety problem. I have no idea who should take responsibility for this equipment — the school, West Linn lacrosse or football teams, the parks and recreation department or the community that loves this track for exercise. It seems like a good time to try to make a plan and execute it. I would be happy to help.

Does West Linn need Oppenlander for sports?

Anyone in West Linn would say I'd put our students first, in any agenda. But when I heard Dean Suhr, at noon news today, protest over this site which he lives by, I'd say couple blocks west of it and my property, being birdseyes at same distance; he has taken a play to influence the community by getting channel TV 12 to speak and remonstrate against the wise decision to sell this surplus land parcel.

Dean Suhr wants to have it for youth activities. Ok my memory serving me well today was not long before, we heard adjacent neighbors complain about the high volume of noises the players' activities deliver deliberately? Yes! I live down wind of this site and I can hear their clamors, heedless irritating nuisances.

I support this prudent decision. As it is, we're short financed to maintain city necessities and those parks used heavily year round.

In time of difficult circumstances, let's not be circumvent. The revenues of surplus land sold benefit all our residents of West Linn.

Let's not be single handedly selfish in as much deprive others of the intention.

Why is it that few/some residents of West Linn hate the developers? They show their hate and discriminate against them yet they, the developers, develop and create local economice for all of us. They aren't any different than the dentist, nor doctors or lawyers nor grocery establishment, etc. We need housing as much as food.

It's a hate alright when the citizens act and perform hatefully. I rest my case.
