Re: “Letter From the Editor

Personally, I like the idea of making the thugs work while in jail. Bring back the chain gangs. Have'em work for their "free" food and lodgings....

Re: “Mud Island Input Meeting

A place that sells food and drink at reasonable prices would be just grand. I agree with the Liberty Island idea.... bring on the carousel and some "fair" type of concessions. The name "Mud Island" was never that appealing....

Definitely keep it open later!!! During the summer, early morning and late night is perfect for those of us who don't like to roast in the concrete environment....

I also like the idea of converting the pedestrian part of the bridge into a trolly spur for those of us who don't want to pay as much to ride the monorail. I'd keep one side for pedestrian use though... as it is fun to walk that bridge on cooler days.

The gift shops need a MAJOR time revitalization. Too much high priced "generic" stuff... and not enough to entice families with young children in. Maybe check out the zoo's gift shops and consider the variety in their merchandise. As it is, the one gift shop is just a lot of wasted space! (The Libertyland title would work much better on t-shirts and mugs as well....)

If it would fit, I think a skate park and an actual playground would lure younger people to the park. You would need to have supervision though, in order to make sure the young'uns wouldn't get in trouble... ;o)

Also, the zoo has those special nights during the year where they have parties and gatherings with food, music, drink, and fellowship. Those nights make some big time money for the zoo. Think how wonderful it would be to cover all of those tables in the Gulf Area with tablecloths, some candles/lanterns, and serve refreshments along with some live music. The views would be stellar and I bet a lot of couples would go for it. If you take reservations, you could assess the amount of interest ahead of time! Even small sums add up, so this could be a source of revenue as well as a music venue for local musicians.

They already spruced the Gulf up by replacing all those old, dingy boats with the newer themed ones. I've always loved all the flowers and plantings. The place has so much potential.... I hope something wonderful is done to bring it all out!
