About three months ago, I was contacted by a local skateboarder, John Hawley, who called me to talk to me about the prospect of getting a skate park in Perrysburg.

I explained how he would need to go to city council and recreation committee about it and they could be more helpful - and added to contact me for a story on how things are going. While initially the idea was in the back of my head I soon forgot about it.
