One of the finest public parks in North America is on Blythe Island. However, it lacks one crucial security item. There is no camera monitoring the entry and exit at the busy parkway.

I learned of this incredible deficiency Monday afternoon. A man parked near the Coast Guard pavilion was allowing a large German shepherd to run freely. As soon as I stopped 100 feet behind him, the dog charged my open convertible and twice tried to jump in to get at my young, chocolate lab. The fellow screamed at the dog and ran to his vehicle and swung way wide of me so I couldn’t get a tag number.

I calmly went around to the campground office, assuming they would be able to provide what I needed to file a police report. The woman I spoke to said she’d been requesting such a system for years. Nothing has been done yet.

Question for the county commissioners — what has to happen before this situation is corrected?
