Times have changed


DANVILLE — Editor:

Wouldn’t it be nice to read the morning news and not have a police report in it?

Wow, it’s really getting bad when sometimes you will have almost a whole page of police reports in the newspaper.

I remember growing up, we had no police in schools. We never heard of such a thing. The only thing we ever got a ticket for was illegal mufflers or speeding down Main Street going to Marty K’s or Steak ’n Shake. We never heard of drugs or anything of the like.

Our town was really a fine place to live. Now, everything locked up, no walking at night, scary to even be anywhere at anytime. It’s really a shame what it’s turned into and what the future holds for our once beautiful town. Sorry!
