A lot more crime in town these days... I see men loitering on many local corners sitting in their cars and such for extended periods of time. I won't frequent Rite Aid or speedway at Tienken and Rochester roads as of late due to the cars and people standing around listening to music or standing around smoking. Makes me uneasy to say the least
