i enjoyed the town meeting. it was great to hear how the judges and officers work together. if the parents would not keep booze in the home their would be less chance of them getting into it.i could not believe parents serve booze to their teenagers. what are they thinking?i know of a mother who use to drink with her daughter.we all need to get involved in this drinking and drug problem.

as long as we continue to look at drinking as socially acceptable thing, the problem is not going to go away.Do it in front of your young children and they will grow up thinking that it's ok to drink.

You all obviously never heard of prohibition. I think its time to put the drinking age back to 18 . That alone would illuminate 75% of under age drinking. Gecsa is a joke. Its a place for boozers and druggies to hook up and get better connected. None but the abuser can stop you from your bad habits but yourself. Lets throw some more money at it. After all those counselors, courts and prisons are an economy of their own. Its all about money. You people are stuuuuuuuuupid.
