Responders prefer outdoors in latest online Times' poll

Sunday, June 7, 2009

Close to 400 responders voted on the latest Brazil Times' online poll and more than 40 percent of them enjoy the outdoors during the summer months the most.

The Brazil Times asked online readers recently what their favorite part of summer was. Responders had five options to choose from, including:

* Being outdoors,

* Air conditioning,

* Cookouts,

* Camping, or

* Other.

A total of 383 responded to the poll with 176 (46 percent) saying being outdoors was the most enjoyable part of summer.

Seventy (18.3 percent) said they enjoyed cookouts the most while 57 (14.9 percent) said their favorite part of summer was air conditioning.

In addition, 44 (11.5 percent) chose other while 36 (9.4 percent) said camping was their favorite.

A total of 17 responded to the poll as well.

One responder said, "I like spending time with my kids because we are all out of school," while another stated, "The chance to be out of the house and enjoy yard work and take a swim when it really gets warm out. It is also nice to see everyone out and about from being cooped up from the cold. Summer also brings on the festivals and paradesa and who could forget the auto races of NASCAR and the Indy 500."

Another responders said, "The best part for our family is being on a less structured scheduled and lots of family time," while another said, "I love going boating with my brother or just riding along with my dad on the golf course."

The current Times' online poll deals with smoking in public places.

The Times is asking online readers should the county adhere to a no-smoking policy in all public places?

Responders have either yes or no options to choose from.

As always, readers are given the opportunity to comment on the poll.
