      The CoH has no obligation to help you prepare YOUR children for back to school. You should be thankful and reserve commentary.

      The parking fees didn’t change, they’re just being enforced now – this is not nearly as big a deal as people are making of it.

      And maybe if people who parked in the city actually paid the rates they should, the city could do more. However the “I am entitled” group thinks its great to steal money from the city by not paying for parking. Enjoy while you can, it looks like the barrier is here to stay and expand.

      Corporation thanks for the give back and keep up the good work.
