Before you gripe about every teen out there maybe you should know some before make accusations!

nowhere to go!
nothing to do!
they want to hang out!
they want to talk to their friends!
can't cruise!

THOSE POOR PITIFUL KIDS!!!!!!!

solution -
since they have nothing to do, get about 50 of the teens, and their parents and grandparents, organized, involved, and dreaming of their wants. have the council call some public meetings on it.

come up with a proposal and have the city put it to a special vote to build em a 1 mile oval paved track so they can cruise and a BIG parking lot so they can visit.
add some $150/ft open pavilions and a 2000 ft air conditioned and heated concessions and meeting rooms.
don't forget to include a few small jumbotrons to play games on, killer music system with a couple dozen speakers, and a few kick ass full size carnival rides. and free admission!
demand that free cell phones and rubbers be handed out to all those wanting them.

1/2 cent general tax for a few years or penny hamburger tax ought to do it. remind the council they can do it with a hamburgler tax by ordinance if needed.

this project is do-able, wanted by many, and the taxpayers have money to burn on others wants.
TAKE IT TO THE CITY COUNCIL!

this is not a throw back in your face.

why can they not park at the court house?
why can they not park at the parking lot at city hall?
why can they not park in the parking lot of the RCSD?

These places are for all citizens paid for by all the citizens
just a thought and not a joke.

may be some laws on it? curfews, loitering, noise, minors smoking, littering, some laws on more than 1 or 2 teens riding together.

Has anyone noticed all the kids who have brand new trucks and plenty of money to spend because they have been handed everything in life instead of actually working for it? Because majority of the kids in this town are exactly that way

While i was in highschool i worked 50 to 60 hrs a week and went to highschool and graduated, i work my ass of for what i got, also im going to a pretty high ranking college and guess what parents arnt paying a dime of it i am by my self so every kid that drives a new car or has money that doesnt mean that their parents give them everything bc mine dont and didnt when i was in highschool the problem is the parents around here their kids take after them and the kids have no drive in life to be something better most likely like there parents and your just mad bc you see someone with nice things and it makes you mad bc you didnt excel in life. Its also the parents right to give there kids all those nice things when they went to college and made somthing of them selves your just mad bc your parents couldnt do that for you

Its crazy looking at some of the shit posted on this forum you all are stupid people with the intellectual capability of a five year old. After growing up in this town for the last 8 years and now that im out of highschool and have gone out and seen the real world and have broaden my spectrum of knowledge and gained even more common sense and expanded my views on life greatly. For some reason people in this town have a psychological mind set that I've never seen before and its pretty sad, thank god my family isn't from this town and that i don't have the same mind set that the majority of the people in this town do. Its scary as smart as i am seeing this, you wonder why this town has gone to shit and if this town is like this then their is towns all over the country like this and people wonder why the country has gone to shit also im 18 and its sad when a kid notices this. One solution to the problem is the parents, some parents need to start being actual parents. And if anyone disagrees feel free to reply i would be happy to correct your way of thinking and i promise i don't have the intellectual capability of a five year old

to truth -
so are you 17 or 18. good luck with your English in college. imo, your comprehension and harsh judgement of people also needs some work.

I believe the poster was generalizing some, and DID refer to a majority, not "all" and "every".
I will state that if not the majority, then way too many "have been handed everything in life instead of actually working for it?"
i, and likely the other poster, would agree with you that "some parents need to start being actual parents".

haven't driven by the school lately but there are a lot of very nice vehicles driven by teens. you're likely one of the few exceptions if you worked and paid for yours. you probably know that. and should be able to see where he is coming from.
you have developed a work ethic that most teens haven't.

your statement "you all are stupid people with the intellectual capability of a five year old." does show your ignorance.

you're also likely in left field and clearly assuming with "it makes you mad bc you didnt excel in life....your just mad bc your parents couldnt do that for you"
you don't know the poster or their family and how they were raised. all assumption and quick judgement by you.

My take is that he sees many kids being spoiled and doesn't think it's good for them or wise actions by the parents.. would you agree with that?

regarding your "the problem is the parents around here their kids take after them and the kids have no drive in life to be something better most likely like there parents."
you need to come off your high horse and realize someone will have to do the grunt work - the manufacturing, service, and farm work. nothing wrong with the work ethic around here. we just need jobs like we had. also, many folks are happy with their position in life here - hopefully a steady job, grandparents, parents, family and relatives, small town, low crime, church,and friends here. they prefer it over the money and rat race in the big cities. money, a new car, huge home isn't the top priority in life for many here. for some it is. nothing wrong with either if it suits them.
and many do leave for needed jobs, education, and to better themselves for the security it offers. many probably wouldn't if there were more jobs here.
for another discussion - but our and many folks and towns are suffering and dying. profit going to corporate greed, outsourcing, mgmt salaries, and stock growth/dividends instead of higher worker pay has hurt the average worker and middle class.

pretty sure you'll see a lot of small towns are exactly the same as far as work ethic and happiness. get used to it. good luck with your further education, more gained knowledge, and more learned reality as you grow up.

Point is this, if Riverside did not want those kids hanging out then they would put up a no loitering sign and call the police. If this bothers you that they do not then move to another town or city that has more than one damn store that stays open 24hrs a day, or go when the kids are not normally around the store at that time. They have every right in the world, as long there is not a NO LOITERING sign posted, to hang out in a private or public parking area, get over it.

do yo have to be a small kid to enjoy the park?
