On May 28, Merced residents celebrated Black Homecoming at Flanagan Park. Kids got their faces painted, there was a cake walk and games were played; barbecue smoke filled the air along with the sounds of music from DJ Kirk Wright . As CEO of S.O.U.L., I would like to send a special thanks to supervisor John Pedrozo, who provided hot dogs and drinks. But there is a problem that needs to be fixed immediately: This park needs restrooms, and I am hopeful the responsible entity will see to it.
