Thank you very much for shedding light on our neighborhood problem. However, there were a couple of important points (in my opinion) that were not touched upon that I’d like to bring up.

We’ve tried several times to compromise with Gail Kelley and the others. We told her we would try harder to keep the dogs quiet, which is their real issue—and a totally valid one.

We’ve assured them that we care about the children in our neighborhood and would never interfere with them playing on the field.

Most of us pick up litter (along with our dog’s poo) while we are at the field.

And being out there with our dogs makes the neighborhood a safer place.

Basically, we really have tried to work things out with our neighbors. We never wanted to have a battle .
