Re: “The legislature's pork barrel scam pays for park for Mayberry family

This article is beyond frustrating to me. Andy and Julie Mayberry are great people and to slam them for trying to get a public park in East End infuriates me.
I am a resident of Saline county and live in East End. I attended the Saline Quorum Court meeting along with several other East End residents. Not ONE SINGLE person came to this meeting to oppose this park. We all want a park for our children. It's ridiculous that we have to drive to Bryant, Benton or Little Rock for our kids to play on a decent playground!!! We pay taxes just like every other area of saline county, so why does East End never get anything? Neither of my children are handicapped, but I think having an accessible playground is a great idea! It's safe and everyone can play together! The Mayberry's daughter is not the only handicapped child in East End!!!!!!!! This is not a park for their daughter! To even hint at that is ridiculous. Yes, the land is owned by the Mayberry family. Do you know what else is on that land? You failed to mention that. The Ican! Arts & Resource Center. This is a center for special needs kids to go and do activities. People come from ALL OVER this state to attend classes at this center. So having an accessible park RIGHT NEXT to the center would be amazing! Next time you write an article about East End, please get your facts straight. This article is bad journalism.
