  1. Dane Park in the news again. Never for good reasons. I wouldn’t go near that place if it were the last place on earth.

    • OK Jj let me get this straight. If Dane Park was ‘the last place on earth’ (perhaps you mean Earth), how could you not ‘go near that place’? Would you suddenly be on the Moon, perhaps? 😀

  2. Me and my husband were at that park last Friday and we saw two woman in there 40s injecting heroin on the park bench .

    • How do you and your husband know it was heroin the two ‘woman’ (WOMEN) in there (THEIR) 40s were injecting on the park bench? And how did the park bench feel after it had ‘heroin’ injected ‘on’ it?
