    After reading the article……. I really dont see what the problem is. Anywhere you go, theres somebody that breaks out a beer, even off duty policemen, city workers, Drs., buisinessmen, & other people. That article didnt mention ONE thing that was of serious concern!

    IMO… its Mt Vernon trying to find something to complain about again.

    Why is it that everytime Mt. Vernon has something nice certain people want to complain and give it a bad reputation? Give it a rest!

    I agree, from the looks of that photo, the park is a scary place.

    Let’s see … wide open area near Columbus Road, kind of hidden from view by trees … and we’re surprised that there is boozing and drug dealing going on?
