Somewhat shocked was my reaction when I was confronted by this locked gate and sign at the new football field and running track at the King City Secondary School. A year in the making, at God-knows at what cost, and I can't even take a walk around the track or throw a football to my grandson. The ominous black fence makes the facility looks like a prison yard. Apparently permission can be had to use the facility by obtaining a permit. Does that mean each time I want to run a couple of laps, or play catch, or fly a kite with my grandkids, I have to apply for a permit? All those tax dollars and I'm locked out. This is a step backward. I liked it better the old way, when I didn't feel like a trespasser.
