Area too dangerous for school campus
The following comment arrived as a letter to the editor, but I'd like to post it here first because Denise, who cares about the well-being of Lorain, raises an important safety issue for people to talk about.

Letter to the editor:
Listening to the police scanner tonight, it is amazing with all the calls. Fights,and more fights, 13th Long, 14th Long, 17th Long, 18th Washington...etc...code 1, code 2.
This my friends is "Central Lorain"...and "ward 2". This my friend is where they want to build a learning campus? Site 3. Are they out of your cotton picken minds?
Wake up folks, if you live outside of this ward, you better start making your voices heard, because it is going to be your kids coming into this ward to go to school if they have their way. It is going to be your kids in the midst of drug dealers and gun toters. If you question the validity my statements, get yourself a scanner and listen for yourselves.
It was even said last year by an officer heard over the scanner "it was like the wild wild west".
This ward has been neglected and heads turned the other way for years, but now someone benefits with a campus, and the rose colored glasses come on.
