CNN's Victor Blackwell talks to Hazel Dukes of the NAACP about New York City's ban on large, sugary beverages. Dukes says the ban punishes small business.

    We have an epidemic of obese kids. They say the best way to lose weight is to exercise outdoors. Given today's news, however, parents are afraid to let their kids play outdoors. How can we get creative to where kids can play outside safely? The following may be a concept to do this.
    First of all, we read about all the natural disasters happening, like that of super storm Sandy. I believe open-air areas, like school grounds and parks, should double as an emergency staging ground. They should place nice looking fences with check in points, to help with crowd control. So after a hurricane or an earthquake, they could air lift emergency supplies onto these open-air areas. And they could air lift the injured from these open-air areas, as well. These gates would be used for people in the immediate neighborhood to get their emergency services. At other times, these open-air areas would be used for kids to play safely.
    These parks would include the following. They could install bikes to be rented, so kids can utilize the whole park to get exercise. They could build climbing walls, walking trails and other creative exercise equipment. The difference than a regular park that parents would not want their kids to play in due to safety fears. Is that these open-air areas would have fences with check-in gates around it. However, these fences should not look like prison walls. They could plant trees and shrubs around these fences to make them look better.
    Perhaps people who live in the neighborhood could be given an all in one card to check into and out off these parks. These cards could double as School IDs, as well. They would install card readers at these check-in gates. Perhaps these cards could contain a GPS chip in it. Then if their kids go near these gates and the parents are caught off guard. The card/GPS reader will notify the parent and authorities by way of text message. In other words, the parent can indicate when they are going to pick up their child; otherwise this chip warning will go off if their kids are leaving the park.
    We must get creative to get kids to play outside without any added danger to their safety. The previous concepts just may help do this. Are these ideas doable? I have no clue. But at least this post will make you think.
