History ignored

Editor: When the school board ignored all the suggestions to name a new school in Willoughby for a Willoughby pioneer or Willoughby-related geographic name, I didn’t say anything.

Now that the Willoughby clear-cut pave-over council has given a new park in Willoughby  the same name, enough is enough.

This park should be named after a Willoughby pioneer. It seems that the council wants to also pave over Willoughby history.

This is ironic, as one of the more appropriate names could have been Jack Bray, an early member of the Township council, who donated the land for the Willoughby Hall.

Probably the easiest way to name new schools and parks would be to use the name of the road that the school or park it is being built on. This park could be named for Scholes Road (83 Avenue.

Brian Johnson,

Willoughby
