It's just that kind of attitude from many of today's seniors and baby-boomers that has many teens turning to drugs and the street gangs as a way out of being treated like animals. Like former Mayor Cochran said, these are somebody's grandkids... can't our community find something to help them get ahead. In saying that, I have to add that at this point, I do agree with John Inks that every penny counts with a 6 Million buck deficit.... and 50 grand here for at-risk kids, then 3500 here for the asians, then it'll be 2500 for the latinos, 2600 bucks for the African Americans.... we have to ALL make sacrafices. I would love to see seniors and baby-boomers step to the table and take sacrifices in their government hand-outs so that we in the next few generations don't inherit 6 figure debt burdens we can't possibly pay.
