To the Editor:

I am responding to the letter I am only just now seeing from David Stout (“Scout asks: What about a skate park?,” Jan. 6-12 edition) about a Pittsboro skate park.

I hope David indeed does continue to research information on the issue. About 10+ years ago, there was a great effort to raise funds for a local skate park. Among much success was a concert held at the now-defunct General Store venue on the PBO circle. Included among the bands was my son’s (also now defunct), Caltrop. It rocked PBO.

Turnout was excellent, and a lot of money was collected at this event, all added to funds donated by many other sources for the skate park.

At this point no skate park has appeared, nor has all that money. I hope David’s researching can shine some light on where this money has been (collecting interest hopefully), and perhaps even result in the construction for the promised skate park.
