Hi, I am Evan. In summer, after schools are closed, I work at a theme park in a nearby coastal town. I love summer time and working at the park so I can't wait till the schools close for the summer. The amusement park where I work is really big with lots of fun rides and restaurants. But what's best about it is that it is actually built on the beach. This is a beach town and there is a really long boardwalk by the beach with many shops, food stores and stairs to the beach at several points. The main entrance to the park is also from the boardwalk. The park also has access to the beach so you can get to the beach by going through the park. I work there as a ride operator at one of the roller coasters which is the most fun. There are three other employees who work at the same ride with me. We welcome the riders, remind them the safety procedures and operate the ride. I work here for about two months every summer and enjoy it very much. They organize several fun events over the summer with free food, ice-cream and games for the workers. The park access is free for the employees so I can ride the rides as much as I want. My family and friends love visiting me here because I can get them free admission to the park too. The only bad part about working here is that it gets too hot sometimes. But even then, I can just jump in the cool waters of the Atlantic ocean and refresh.
Question: What does Evan like the most about the park?

Americans have always been interested in their Presidents' wives. Many First Ladies have been remembered because of the ways they have influenced their husbands. Other First Ladies have made the history books on their own.
At least two First Ladies, Bess Truman and Lady Bird Johnson, made it their business to send signals during their husbands' speeches. When Lady Bird Johnson thought her husband was talking too long, she wrote a note and sent it up to the platform. It read, “It's time to stop!” And he did. Once Bess Truman didn't like what her husband was saying on television, so she phoned him and said,” If you can't talk more politely than that in public, you come right home.”
Abigail Fillmore and Eliza Johnson actually taught their husbands, Millard Fillmore and Andrew Johnson, the thirteenth and seventeenth Presidents. A schoolteacher, Abigail eventually married her pupil, Millard. When Eliza Johnson married Andrew, he could not read or write, so she taught him herself.
It was First Lady Helen Taft's idea to plant the famous cherry trees in Washington, D. C. Each spring these blossoming trees attract thousands of visitors to the nation's capital. Mrs. Taft also influenced the male members of her family and the White House staff in a strange way: she convinced them to shave off their beards!
Shortly after President Wilson suffered a stroke, Edith Wilson unofficially took over most of the duties of the Presidency until the end of her husband's term. Earlier, during World War I, Mrs. Wilson had had sheep brought onto the White House lawn to eat the grass. The sheep not only kept the lawn mowed but provided wool for an auction sponsored by the First Lady. Almost $100,000 was raised for the Red Cross.
Dolly Madison saw to it that a magnificent painting of George Washington was not destroyed during the War of 1812. As the British marched toward Washington, D. C., she remained behind to rescue the painting, even after the guards had left. The painting is the only object from the original White House that was not burned.
One of the most famous First Ladies was Eleanor Roosevelt, the wife of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. She was active in political and social causes throughout her husband's tenure in office. After his death, she became famous for her humanitarian work in the United Nations. She made life better for thousands of needy people around the world.
