There ain't nothing much going on in this 'hood that we all don't know about. We helped police with info. to end the standoff in Westage over a year ago. Now we have the nursing home for inmates. Many neighbors recognize the Veterans who are active in the community, but we all watch the sex offender registry. We have an email alert, we have a Facebook page, many are Facebook friends and we have many cell phone numbers. This is called block watch, community policing, nosy neighbor.. whatever. Its the right thing to do to keep us all safe.
