if it were there, neighborhood watch would have had no right but to alert TRAINED, SWORN, PUBLIC SAFETY OFFICIALS.

This is dangerous stuff. Phrases like; its not like we're going to let anybody in, or, we don;t wait for an Amber Alert or an explanation, seem knee jerk elitist viewpoints that lead ''vigilance'' into ''vigilanteism. '' I hope whoever ''guides'' these watch groups stresses restraint, over entitlement.

Although any system has flaws, and can hurt some recipients. The Social Security system does not act swiftly when cutting benefits. The system has a lengthy review and appeals process. Its not fun, or, easy. However it exists. It also directs recipients to independent advocates to help folks navigate its process.

This seems to be a troubling issue. It seems ''duty loads'' are able to be met. Training needs are in danger. However, some less than congruent person could misinterpret this article's data. Assume departments are at disadvantages when they are not. And, decide to pull something and get folks hurt.

I am sad to admit living on the fringes of 12309. The level of shallow elitism demonstrated by my fellow zip code members is embarrassing. They are no more than frustrated mid-level managers, unfulfilled Ph.D.s, and debutantes whose kitchens are too small.
John coached, and disciplined my son. He was always available with answers and delivered on promises. Thankfully, John reinforced a mind set which has led my son to make excellent healthy life choices.
Thats all we should ask for.

Given that Pleasant Valley elementary school housed our county's first multigrade ''special needs'' classes, Quackenbush Park became a huge playground where kids with all kinds of limitations got to test and overcome many of them. As a proud thankful graduate of those special classes who has been lucky enough to have had a career involved with offering options to disabled folks, my heart breaks knowing that today's children do not experience the unbridaled freedom we enjoyed on lunch hours in that park.
We got picked on, picked last, teased, and tested. Excellent unstructured learning of life lessons. Today's litigious society just does not offer these freedoms.

What differentiates front page NEWS from an INFOMERCIAL. Horvath and Mazzone will not need a P.R. firm for three years.

This article sheds light on local grass roots organizations raising rational data driven concerns. I hope the Department of Development at the very least makes Ms. McCann back up her hyperbole with concrete examples from other projects they have completed.
