It's time to enforce the God damn speed limit. I'll help you find them because it's easy, because I'm the only one doing 30 in town you can just pull everyone else over.

The increased reports of heroin possession amongst GC youths is alarming. Address this problem quickly and publicly before it becomes an epidemic like it seems to be in places like CSH.

Heroin is a serious drug folks. I agree that it is very alarming. I can't imagine why our kids would think this would be a good thing to try, even just once. Have the drug talk with your kids early and often.
