That 'kid' (John) now like to walk in the middle of the street on Wasena instead of using the sidewalk, then tells you to go 'f' off when you are in your car trying to get around him.

I know him also ( bad new) and Phil the next time he is walking in the road and yells the f word to u run him down....I would....

Running him over wouldn't do any good. I just take my time, wait for him to be done, he's always eventually moved out of the way. I don't honk, I don't rev my engine. Oh how I want to do all those things, but I'd rather not wake up to my house on fire or my tires slashed. The worst part is when traffic is coming both ways on Wasena.

700 Church street is across from Milts Rendezvous bar is it not.

I looked at the addresses and that is about right. There is also a doctors office near by, a small convenient store, a liquor store, and a church within 200 yards of Milts. If you suggesting that Milts is a community problem, I disagree. If there are any issues in this area it's a problem from society.
