I just read the police blotter about all the breaks ins into houses and cars last month on Hildana. There you go. That was my street. I want to move back, but it's just not safe anymore.

Too bad that the library playground isn't safe anymore. I know it well. I used to play there when it was the Moreland Elemenrary School playground back in the 50's and 60's. Too bad adults aren't safe in a place that used to be safe for 5 year-olds. But that's what Shaker has become, and has been for almost 50 years.
