:eek: What?! That's insanity!

My neighbor volunteered for them for a long time. I'll have to ask her next time I see her if she knows more details.

@#$* Buddy Dyer. :mad:

This just fries me to no end. I shared, copied and pasted everywhere and wrote a letter too.

From Mark Schlueb (he wrote the article) this AM:

"Thanks for very much for the email. We’ve been hearing from a lot of readers about Freedom Ride, and I suspect City Hall is hearing from them, too. I’d be surprised if the city doesn’t back off its plans."

WOO HOO!!!

I would be surprised...

There are more soccer moms than people needing Therapeutic riding...

maybe they need to get the big guys in town behind them...

Disney, Universal...maybe if the public outcry reached them?

I have been looking for a therapeutic program for my daughter, who has cerebral palsy. It is sad to see that an area which is already very lacking in this type of program is about to lose another one.

I have joined the Facebook group and will get my letter off to the mayor today.
