I had to read your posts a couple times because you don't use periods. I know you have one because you used it following the "no". Thanks.

I don't go to Brownwood much, it does seem like there are a lot of unsupervised kids there. I don't dislike kids, just do not believe the intent of the square was to provide a place for the neighboring town's kids to hang out. I enjoy Spanish and Sumter more. Not trying to talk my fellow villagers from Brownwood area to drive up (squares are busy enough up here even with the fewer kids), and I have little desire to drive down to Brownwood.

Lots of things to do down here for all. Just have to be motivated enough to find it. I doubt they are all little angels?

I remember a thread complaining about unsupervised kids at Lake Sumter hanging around in "gangs", especially outside the movie theaters.
There are kids in all the Town Squares because they're open to the public.
People that aren't residents of TV provide the life blood to keep the restaurants, theaters, and shops open.
Be careful what you wish for............
Without non-residents, I doubt there would be "free" entertainment operating 365 days a year.

But, I don't think the 10-15 year olds, hanging around the Brownwood downtown are contributing much to the financial stability of the area.

It is like when we were kids having a great time and not wanting parents to show up. Same thing. We're having a great time but when the kids show up, well...it's just different.
Not that they're doing anything wrong at all and they have a right to be here, just as the parents had a right to be there.

I like it that the kids from neighboring towns can come and mingle and learn about people from all walks of life who have earned and saved for what we have here. Knowing us and our community better can only improve relations and harmony with local people.

The sheer numbers of Villagers as compared to numbers of teens present assure the teens aren't going to gain any ground with group behaviors. Villagers "see something and say something" as is visible here.

I pray I never reach the age when I'm the crabby old guy sitting on the front porch screaming at kids to stay off my lawn or out of my town square when they're not doing anything wrong. Just being kids.

I'm sure we all have days when younger, more active individuals can cause us upset. Mustn't forget that once, we, too, had that endless type of energy. Enjoy the enthusiasm of youth. Children learn by example, BE A GOOD ONE!

It would be pretty boring here if the squares were only frequented by residents. I love seeing a cross section of people at the squares.

If anyone, kids or adults are behaving dangerously or inappropriately, running in and out of cars, disruptive, drunk and obnoxious, whatever....the police substation is right beside the Barn Storm Theater.

We are at Brownwood frequently and I see many more disruptive seniors than kids. I don't find it has anymore kids than any of the other squares. I gues it depends on the day. (a rainy Saturday afternoon might mean more action at the movie theater??)
