Matthews & Mecklenburg Co. spent $1.6 million of our tax dollars on a “nature” park for the wealthiest citizens to ride bikes in spandex, breathe fresh air, and walk their spoiled dogs, but have to close down libraries where kids with eager minds and seniors, who can’t afford to buy books. I’m so proud I could bust! We should have safe places to enjoy nature. In fact, we do. It’s called “Outdoors.” It’s free. Try it.
