Those residents aren't telling you the real reason they don't want their children to be out playing while baseball games are being played. There is a Public Address system that is located at that baseball diamond or at least the electric outlet to power a very loud portable one! (I live across the street from the diamond on the other side of the tennis courts.) They have been told repeatedly to turn down the volume of that public address system! The police have talked to them, but never fail they do not believe it is a valid complaint and the next time it is just as loud. The man who is announcing every player up to bat has the buzzhole voice of a white trash carnival barker! How would you like to listen to that all morning long while you are enjoying the nice breeze on your deck and attempting to read the morning paper!
I want that PA speaker system completely removed and any attempt to thwart that through the use of a portable one should be subject to an automatic $300 fine!
A comment on artificial turf. The black particles in it have been linked in the same sentence with breast cancer! It should likely be removed from the High School Football field; and we put two inverted smiley face stickers next to the people whose idea it was to use our money to pay for it!
There is an older man who is with that Baseball group; he looks a little like how one would describe a ghoul face. As I drove by one day on the way to the store he was giving what is called “A thousand yard stare.” He also walks by my house a few times and looks the same way. He might be with the High School athletic department? I see why neighbors don't want their children out playing while those games are going on! Whitefish Bay used to have more class and integrity than this.
