It's interesting that when the Little League went to what was essentially this same Park Board to request that additional lights be installed at Sedgewick Park, the Park Board made the Little League go into the neighborhoods around the park with a survey about concerns before the lights were approved.

Yet, adding a ball field to Waiola Park was approved without requiring a similar courtesy to the neighbors of Waiola Park. Could that have something to do with the fact that one of the Park Board members, Ms Penicook, is a neighbor of Sedgewick Park and was possibly representing her other neighbors in the Board action? Or was the additional ball field at Waiola Park a quid pro quo in return for the Little League's support for the sale of part of Gordon Park?
