    A– H—-. Why are people so base and self-centered to take someone else’s artwork?

        seems like a treatment facility nearby would be a good idea. Oh wait…

          My thoughts exactly… If only we had a place to treat addicts in our community that are resorting to this type of behavior. It would need to be accessible by public transportation, and large enough to care for large volumes of people affected by the current opioid epidemic. You know the property where Roses Highway Inn used to be would be perfect! And before anyone brings up proximity to the school, I will let it be known I have a child at that school, and I am still embarrassed that the NIMBYs prevented that organization from helping people in need
