The water from the spigot next to the Bryan Park tennis courts is spraying rather than streaming, which makes it difficult for dogs to get a drink.

Tents set up overnight. Tons of trash. Social gatherings > 15 people. Alcohol and drug use. Apparently city has social workers at park to hand out free water and supplies. Nobody is taking care of real problems.

At Bryan Park right by the swimming pool, between the sidewalk and Woodlawn, there is a water pipe with the cover missing. The cover is sitting on the grass right beside the pipe opening but looks to be damaged. This is a fairly large hole in the ground and could be a danger if a child or pet accidentally stepped into it. Again, this is right near the fenced part of the pool and on the strip of grass that is between the sidewalk and Woodlawn.

To whom it may concern, Over the past couple weeks I have been visiting the Miller-Showers Park located at 1500 N. College Ave. I like to pass the time listening to the waterfall or looking at the detailed sculptures. Unfortunately, it is hard to enjoy the view because the water is so slimy and murky. I am disappointed because it can look so much better if cleaned. Right now it just looks gross. To resolve the problem, I would appreciate if someone could please clean the water so there is no more green slime in the water. I look forward to your reply and a resolution to my problem. Please contact me at the above email address. Sincerely, Kristina Coonce

Dear Ms. Granger, I am writing to you again this year about the "encampment" of vagrants near Cascades Park in your council district. Located near the corner of N. College and Old 37 it is a threat to the health and safety of our community. Children play in the water downstream from this filth. Thank goodness the disabled child recently lost in Cascades did not wander into this place. The fact that this "encampment" is on a parcel of land owned by the state is hardly an excuse to allow it to exist so close to a city park frequented by families with children. Please do something about this. Cordially, Ron Clees 2221 Browncliff Lane Bloomington IN 47408

At the Ferguson Dog Park there is a large puddle the size of a large bathtub located near the shade shelter. At the moment it is full of green water, after a week or so it becomes a mud wallow with mud the consistency of glue. This feature never dries out and remains a continuing dog magnet. Even with the hose it is not easy to clean them up after they roll in it. A pickup load of gravel or wood chips would be greatly appreciated by many dog owners. Thanks(it is a great park for the dogs!)

To whom it may concern: I was dismayed to read in this morning's hotline that roundup is used in our parks and around our trails. Yes, this is the roundup civilians can buy in stores; however, that does not mean it is safe. I thought Bloomington was a progressive place on the cutting edge of environmental concerns - apparently not. Any amount of poison applied to our earth is dangerous to people and animals, among others. And when we have rains, the roundup runs off into our water systems. Look at all of the drains on streets which sport little stickers saying don't put any hazardous materials down the drains. Well, you are. Let's think about the big picture. What is more important - having a safe environment in which we can be on the grass, drink safe water, etc. or getting rid of a few weeds, which, by the way, are also part of our creation. I know there are invasive weeds, but surely there are safer ways to eradicate them than by spraying them with poison that is hazardous to everything. You say you have professionals applying these poisons - I don't believe that makes the substance any safer. I hope you will consult various organic farmers and landscapers in the area for advice before applying any more roundup. Thank you. Anne Fraker

Our Toyota Sienna mini-van broke down in Olcott Park this morning (Sunday, September 7). It took us several hours to determine that it is the water pump, and the van isn't worth fixing. We will make arrangements for it to be towed tomorrow morning, but are hoping to avoid a ticket for having it parked there overnight. Hope this is ok! We will also report the stranded vehicle to the police. Sincerely, Emily Nehus & Scott Grieb, 602 E. Maxwell, Bloomington IN 47401
