Early Morning Noise
By Damon Hampel

I know first hand what Ms. Lewis is speaking of. Not only do I agree with everything mentioned I would like to add to the list open threats, vehicle damage, property damage, litter, and drug use. Many businesses and homes have had windows broken, electricity tampered with, and doors broken by individuals. And all anyone has to do is walk from the tunnel to First City Saloon to see the vehicle damage and litter.

I know that the police have their hands full on a nightly basis with these problems, and instead of trying to catch or stop such activity why can't there be a prevention policy?

Maybe look into where these individuals are going to and/or coming from and try to prevent these things from happening and hold all responsible for these actions.

About: "I have worked at various college bars across the country as a doorman and bouncer, and am amazed at the lack of security and responsibility of a few of the bars in town. Does anyone else see a problem with needing police stationed outside an establishment on a routine basis? "
