The boys are not heeding the message, despite the high profile hockey players' issue last week. Last night a trash bag full of Bud Light cans was thrown on the front lawn of a vacant Lewis Road house . This morning a Shelton Road resident told me that he cleared $7 from cashing in Bud Lite cans which accumulated on the local party spot, a vacant lot, on his street. Forty one years ago this morning my late brother, just 26, was killed on Salem Street. We are not alone: Alan Napierski, John Babin...Time does not heal all. Parents have got to keep on this issue.

SD, Teen age drinking is not an all boys thing, plenty of our high school girls partake also. Also the community should not think this is an "athlete" thing. I'll bet many of the kids at the HS dance were under the influence, probably more pot than alcohol. Kind of unbelievable that we are on the path to legalization. CS CS

The situation with teen drinking is very serious to an elevated state in our community and all other communities. The drinking has been going on since i can remember and I have been in this community twenty five years. The teens hang out in packs and to me it is just like any other gang, there is always a pack leader to impress and get the attention they want and need. One question to ask a teen is why do they drink or drug and I might get the same answer, " I wanted to see how it felt". I can only say, that as a parent it happens in all circles. I would not place the blame on any particular group, we just all need to find the solution to this world wide problem.
