Talked to a couple people moderately in-the-know this weekend, feeling considerably more hopeful for a 2015 season for Conneaut. Apparently turning even a (very) small profit made the local officials think there's something worth saving...and realistically, anything it contributes to the local economy is better than a shuttered park.

I'm not so sure you want to do that. It's always a good idea to have [rain] water close by when you're Conneaut...

Still the best park mascot outside of Elysburg (thank goodness for Dexter, or else we'd have been alien food).
