I have heard similar stories from other community members. One young lady, who wished not to be named, turned to hard drugs; crack and methamphetamine, may never get her life back.
Others have tried manufacturing their own homebrew Dew in their residences, only to cause more house fires, drawing out the local fire department, and literally adding fuel to the fire.
Back alley Dew sales have drawn gangs to the usually peaceful township, creating need for increased policing in an area without its own local constabulary. There have been no reports of violence as of yet, but some believe it is only a matter of time, and have already begun making sure their doors are locked and their pop is secure.
Where will it end? How many more lives will be affected? How many more quarters will be placed into the slots of other communities?
How can you help? The fire department is selling T-shirts ($15) and hoodies ($30). Please contact the fire department directly, or Abby at Community State Bank.
