“I don’t like it, we can do better as a community,” said Shell Preston. “There is a lot of kids up-coming. We have got to do better, show our kids a better way to live because this is getting worse and summertime is here now — it’s going to get even worse before it’s going to get better. We got to do better as a community, everyone. Everyone has to do their part.”
