Missed opportunity

Your photographer and news editor had an excellent opportunity to show someone skateboarding at the new skateboard park who was wearing the required safety equipment. That appropriate choice would have helped educate skateboarders.

One must get to the very last paragraph of the article to find that the skateboarder featured could be subject to a fine for not wearing a helmet, knee pads and elbow pads.

Why not take the lead in featuring appropriate use of the facility?
