One of the things I most enjoy about living out in the sticks is the anonymity & privacy. No one stumbles into my driveway by accident, and that's how I like it. But that's me - Ms. Marshall clearly likes the limelight more than I do. Different strokes...
Faces of meth. Discretion advised. The longer it goes the nastier it gets.
My dad was a small town cop once upon a time. One night, the hellion son of one of town's wealthier residents tied one on, boosted a car, and took out all the mailboxes and garbage cans he could before putting the car thru a storefront. Around 2AM, Junior's pappy showed up and asked for the keys to the cell. After assuring pops that Junior wasn't going anywhere, my dad complied. Pops let himself in and beat the snot out of his kid. They never had any problems with Junior after that.
Sadly, today's regimes regard stupidity to be reasonable.
Seems to me they have plenty of authority: suspending 5-yr old girls for making "terroristic" bubble blower threats; punishing 7 yr olds for chewing pop tarts into undesirable shapes; suspending 1st graders for playing cops & robbers... good to know today's educators have their eye on the ball.
Oh for heaven's sake. We live in one of the recreational meccas in the universe. Anyone who can't find "a place to play" here is deliberately indolent. We have excellent coaches/teachers/mentors/parents providing the leadership & administering the life lessons to which Mr. Miller pays tribute. Believe it or not, imparting those values is not contingent upon a rec center.
From my old stomping grounds: Feds raid medical marijuana dispensaries in Washington state — where possession is legal
"One of the DEA agents said: 'This is your second raid and your third robbery. Why do you keep doing this?'"
Not sure what, if anything, it means for our neck of the woods. Popcorn's deployed though, so I'm ready to enjoy the show.
So who's sponsoring Loggins? AARP? Geritol? Depends?
Pedestrian mall? Closed to motor traffic? Seems to me that would make an already congested situation even worse.
As someone who lives well west of town, I sympathize. However,
"...if Steamboat would decide..."
Fortunately, it doesn't work that way. It's up to an entrepreneur to risk his own funds (not the city's) to exploit that demand, if there is any.
