Well, if only those with good typing skills and grammar should give opinions then maybe only yours would be there. Or is that what you really want? Just like Melissa, I was giving my opinion and was not criticizeing her opinion. Maybe you should get out your oold dictionary and relearn the definition of criticizing!

Stow Resident. I did not mean to be criticizing anyone. It is just my opinion is much different than Melissa. Anyone who knows me , knows that I love kids and even when their in the wrong. BUT I do believe that this is the time in hteir lives that they need to have some "tough love" and make them accountable for their actions. All that being said I did not say anything about her personally BUT she sure took it to me personally ---yelled at,.----- Grow up!!!!

Kids are going to be kids. There isn't really a victim in this case, so what's the big deal? The city had to do some cleaning up, oh well that's their job.
