Ryan Mo ...Seriously the guy Joe I think its the same guy i have gone back and fourth with before so i am surprised by his willingness to offer help....he must be coming over to the dark side,,,,HA HA .....but he is on your side...Maybe you didn't read his posting correctly ...maybe instead of spending so much time in front of doyle's pick a book up ,could help with the spelling and reading...Not a slam just a suggestion...You guys have posted many times Why dont they ask us what we want/need why dont they show us respect...We'll that's what Joseph was doing he was suggesting you put a proposal together and submit it, that is how things get done. you know you cant just jump on people when they are trying to help and then ask why dont they give us respect why dont they ask us what we want when you keep attacking everyone...Re reading my post I could do some more reading also as my writing could use some polishing also

Ryan Mo - I think you may have been confused by my post. Matty mentioned that the courts and roller hockey rink were in need of much needed repair. I asked that he put together a list of what is needed and submit it to The Patch for Kristi to post. An open letter from the teenagers of Charlestown. This will make the community see what is needed to help give you teenagers something to do. I’ve always said, "Why not start a pickup game of sorts?" Matty just shed some light on why that isn't as easy as I assumed. John - The dark side always wins. HA. But seriously, Matty's post was the first time I heard one of these teenagers actually tell us what they want. They are telling us, so I'll be the first to say I want to hear. I’m not as closed minded as I may come across. I call for the CNC to pledge $500 to help fix up these two locations. That would be less than $50 from each organization they already allocate funds to. I don’t think these organizations would have a problem donating $50 to help the kids of this town, right?

I am pretty sure the hockey court and basketball court down at Eden St. are in fine, working order. They had tournaments there a couple months ago. No improvements needed. Use those to play some pick up games.
