Skateboard park still needed
To the editor:
There is still no place to skate in town. Skateboarding uses no gas or oil.
It’s a shame our youth must go to and from Wilmington or Myrtle Beach, S.C., in a time when our nation is severely suffering from high gas prices, just so they can enjoy their passion of skateboarding.
The Associated Press reported on June 17, Portland, Ore., lifted its ban on skateboarding due to high gas prices so everyone can commute to work with an alternate means of transportation—the skateboard.
