Tennis isn't Hammond's most pressing need

An Oct. 8 story by Chelsea Schneider said the new tennis court in Harrison Park is finally completed — just in time for winter.

I just don't see the justification for spending that much on a tennis court!

I've been advised that money received from the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has to be allocated to certain things. Unbelievable. The government is in shutdown, there are hungry and homeless people out there, we can't get Cline Avenue reconnected without tolls, and $572,800 has been spent on a tennis court?

Harrison Park is a nice park. I remember when it was safe to walk through there at night.
