No Rest For The Weary

Bangs Community Center this afternoon

So unlike the stones left atop Miss Emily's gravestone in historic West Cemetery the recent jagged rock stone installation atop a stone wall at the Bangs Community Center is not a sign of love and respect.

More like a "Keep out" sign.

Yes loitering teen-agers with time on their hands or the homeless can be a bit of a pain -- especially since the Bangs Center houses our Senior Center.

But seriously, what's next: electrified barbed wire?

When I contacted Ron Bohonowitcz, Director of Facilities for both town and schools, to inquire about the recent installation it was the first he had heard about it.  A few minutes later he emailed me back to say it would be gone soon.
Sure enough  6:00 PM Bangs Community Center

Trinkets adorn the top of Miss Emily's gravestone

Ends well? These are spots for drug deals. Yeah, great.

Saw a group of senior citizens sitting there today. Glad you spoke up Larry.

And I bet they were not involved in a drug deal.

They were enjoying the beautiful weather and chatting.
