“…how do we fix it before it becomes like the city and out of control?” asks contributor

Dear Editor;
I am writing this letter in response to Cst. Daniel Kenny’s column. I would like to state that I thoroughly enjoy the weekly crime report. I love his wit and his ability to get his point across without being judgmental.

Dear Editor;

I am writing this letter in response to Cst. Daniel Kenny’s column. I would like to state that I thoroughly enjoy the weekly crime report. I love his wit and his ability to get his point across without being judgmental.

His last article however really hit home for me.

I have only lived in Rimbey for 16 months so I really don’t know if this issue with the youth running around town being destructive is new or if it is just getting worse. In the last two months I have had my outdoor lights ripped out of the ground. Our lights are not solar-powered; they are actually wired under the ground. So to the culprit’s surprise, they were not able to steal the lights but in the process caused a lot of damage.

For the first 125 months that we lived here we had no incidents and we bragged to our friends in the city about our community, our youth and how different it was here.

I really feel that the vast majority of our youth in Rimbey are good kids that show respect and would not do things like graffiti, property damage and maliciously destroy someone’s property.

I do think however that we have a small group of youth that are being led by one or two individuals that feel destroying other’s stuff is cool. I also believe that it is becoming an issue in our lovely little community. These youth that are doing these things are from our community.

So my question is as a community, how do we fix it before it becomes like the city and out of control?
