The installation of ski netting at the bottom of Thompson Park Hill is one remedy for concerns over injuries at the popular sledding site. However, restricting access to the upper portions of the hill is still needed to reduce speeds and keep this cherished winter activity as safe as possible.
Meanwhile, my interest is in two recent accidents that came to light at last nights Council meeting when Councilman Jeff Smith related stories he heard as a result of his position in the health care community.
I also heard a couple of anecdotal accounts of nighttime sledding at the hill, often association with socializing.
All of this is well and good, but when you invite or allow people on property for a known activity, I think you have to set limits.
