Background checks bar park volunteers? Looking for your reactions

Here’s something I just posted on the Minneapolis Issues Forum for a TC Daily Planet story I’m working on (below).

Hi, I’m a freelance reporter working on a story for the Twin Cities Daily Planet about whether background checks are prohibitive to some people in terms of volunteering with the city’s park system. To see where I’m at on this so far, visit my Reporter’s Notebook at I’m looking for a variety of perspectives on this issue, so I encourage you to post a comment on the page or email me at (Let me know if you prefer to be reached by phone and if so, at what number). Additionally, please do let me know if you feel there’s anything missing from the reporting. Thanks for your help on this story.
