Word On The Web

On “Then And Now,” April 15 Week-Ender Blog post:

To: Ron Ciancutti

Thanks, Ron, for the excellent “Then And Now” post in the Week-Ender.” Right on!

Ron Ciancutti’s political comment, “Then and Now”… has no bearing on nor any relevance to the field of Parks and Recreation; such comments have no place in this magazine and should be discontinued … it does the magazine a disservice.

On “Start A Recreation Road Show,” Feb. 11 blog post:


I read your “Week-ender” about starting a Recreation Road Show. I also downloaded the PowerPoint that you created about your recreation and library services and plan on using it in class. I am a professor at Northwest Missouri State University and this information will be great to share with students in our senior-level administration class.
