NASH: Are we better off?


New Albany Little League can play baseball wherever it sees fit, but some questions have been raised to the accessibility to the planned site, especially to inner-city children who would benefit the most from Little League Baseball. I personally would prefer that New Albany Little League be played within the confines of the city of New Albany.

When the plan was first announced to split the parks, I wasn’t sure if I agreed with it or not, but now I think it will ultimately benefit the residents of our city. New Albany and Floyd County are two distinct places with citizens with different needs. The things that are needed in a city park, are not necessarily the same things that are needed in a county park.

For years the leaders have been at odds at who should pay for what. Now it looks like the leaders of Floyd County are willing to spend a little money on its parks department if only to show New Albany up.

If that’s what it takes, I guess it will have to live with it.
