Give me a break. I could tell horror stories about how that school system has overreacted in the past years. One day at work, I got a call from a teacher, screaming that my son was swinging on the top of the bathroom door. So? Deal with it. I could go on and on. If you can't deal with situations like this without making it into a big deal, then you don't belong in the education field. And yet, I heard of knife fights in the high school, with no reports of it. Its amazing what they want to hide and what they want to make known. Is this their stance on gun control?? Laughable.

That town never ceases to amaze me. Drive down Summit Drive sometime. PLEASE clean it up. You are investing all of that money in a Y, yet there are broken down junk cars sitting in yards. Unreal. Take a gander across from the "recreation center". Not nice.

Meth is a mainstay in Callaway County. We used to see the Sheriff chase people down our street there all of the time. These people were from Tuscumbia. If I am not mistaken, the area they were caught in has a meth head living there that has been in trouble also. Don't miss the place at all.

I lived in Westview years and years ago. It was a good place to raise my kid, he has great memories from it. But even then it had problems. We had a major drug bust one afternoon across the street. A child abduction that no one knew about. But nothing like this. I find it really sad that young adults can't live in peace out there. We moved completely out of the JC area and its almost shocking to sit back and watch whats happening. You all need to get a grip on this before it bleeds over into other areas. I am sorry but the fight on the news devalues the area. My area where I moved from (in another bedroom community) is on the verge of "going south" because of the JC mess moving in and trashing it. I am just concerned about the young working kids that live in the area and have to put up with this. Awful. People and events devalue an area. No one wants to buy in a place like that. You just know when its time to get out and fortunately we could do that.

My heart bleeds for the good residents in Westview. Unbelievable. Its turned into East St. Louis on Collier. We completely moved out of the area and are so glad. The whole JC area is turning into a mess. Life is too short to put up with that mess.
