What happened to the camera at metro boat launch. Sure would be nice to one once again pointed at the docks
I was on Cherry Street today ~12 pm, slow waiting for traffic to pass on Washington Street and to pick up my wife, who ran into Erbert & Gerbert's to pick up an order. There was no traffic behind me and a few cars heading south in front of me. Some "Karen" in a Green Bay Parks & Recreation Truck turning onto Cherry Street stops to rudely tell me that I better move or she's going to have me towed away. Since when do city employees substitute as cops or parking authorities? Being a respectful citizen, I moved and had to circle Washington Street twice to pick up my wife. This is why I hate going to downtown Green Bay. The parking sucks! I wish I had done as #BLM does and picked up my phone and recorded her. Rather than send city employees to diversity training, maybe the city should send them to learn etiquette. My patience is growing thin with overzealous authoritarians. My next response to one of these "Karens" won't be as polite or respectful as it was today.
Just trying to figure out why these trees in Perkins were cut this spring...
Thanks Parks & Rec for putting up the awesome light display in St James Park! A lot of folks were out enjoying it tonight (socially distant, of course), and it really brings cheer and a bit of joy in such a dark year. We see your work and really appreciate that you all are going above and beyond.
Tuesday, December 1st, 6:00PM Green Bay City Council meeting to address public water fluoridation. It's a Zoom video conference so you are invited to participate virtually to share your input as a citizen.

It is still pathetic that the gb park bathrooms are closed after the parki's leave. kids should still be able to go to the park and play and use the bathroom if they have to go. not everyone lives across the st. has it always been this way? if so i don't think i can live in gb much longer. Bellevue doesn't do this their bathrooms are open until curfew.
Any ice rinks open?
Question y are they cutting the trees down in badger park ?
Hope my friends are busy prepping for the Pep Rally, though the replay booth wins it in my book. Found this in my archives...
Hey is anyone looking for an extra person for their basketball team this year? Looking for a team to join. Thanks!
Are swim lessons canceled tonight?
I have a suggestion for Perkins Park where the old tennis courts were/still are. We were in Minneapolis and they have this awesome Futsal court. We have seen people playing at the park and a court would be a great addition for those who love soccer (futbol!)
