White people need to learn how to raise their kids. If those kids were Asian, they would've been walking 4 miles to school and picking up any litter they saw and doing calculus along the way.

ROFL, sorry just having some fun.

I agree with you 100%. That happened at my high school, where they eventually decided to do the alternate side parking thing. What ended up happening was that all the residents started parking their cars and placing garbage cans and other obstacles on the "legal" side of the street to prevent the students from parking. Nice folks, huh?

We recently had a situation in Point Pleasant Beach where people wanted all the bars and boardwalk attractions to close early because they were tired of the noise of people walking back to their cars. Well, why did you move a block away from the damn boardwalk?

Its BS. I live near Westfield High School, and the worst thing I've ever had on my lawn was a water bottle.

They are well known complainers in Westfield. They are worried about their home values, but these articles are exactly the ones that bring down the prices. Stupid old people. Just raise everyone's taxes by another $5K and bring back the buses (when did they get rid of most of them?). Isn't the same lady that wastes 50% of every town meeting about a pedestrian crossing signal in front of her house? She wants the kids to walk to school, but not cross safely in front of her house.

Hope her house goes up for sale soon, I will offer $50K since there are so many problems

That is so true. Sometimes it's better to keep quiet. Now everyone who is looking at a house near the high school could find this article out there. Dumb.
