  1. Bummer, just as I was thinking about renting out the Erie Saloon for my kid’s birthday party.

    Orange Rd. is pretty clearly the preferred artery for malefactors to come into town to prey upon our citizens and their property, then scurry back to whatever hellhole they came from.

    The area around Clary Anderson is poorly lit and the playground there is a seemingly a magnet for idle teens that are honing their menacing skills, parents and police should take notice. It’s not a good reflection on the town.
