Our City Lake is a beautiful amenity that adds a unique quality to this community.  Why not preserve the road for those who respect the beauty of what we have?  Make it a walking/biking trail all the way around.  Fishermen could be given special permits when obtaining their fishing license.

For goodness sakes, can’t the school board save the one tree?  They wanted everyone to ‘think of the children’ when it came time to vote on a bond, but they can’t listen to the rest of us that would like to see the old tree saved?  We gave them the bond issue -- looks like they could give us a tree!!
