I think your paper, The Perkins Progress, is a good thing for the city and we agree with you on a lot of things that comes up in the city like bicycle riders on the sidewalks should be taken off the streets. Also people have a bad habit of parking double on the streets and skate boarding on the sidewalks should be stopped also on the account of protecting our older folks who can't hear good or see good either. Teenagers don't pay any attention to their speeding on streets an have loud mufflers that wake up people who work for a living. Also you can't get no help from the police station when you call them unless you call the cafe and ask for" them, or after 12 O'clock till 8 call the pawnshop-you might find them there or one of them at least is usually there. We the people think Perkins should have about ten time clocks installed at different locations in town for the police to punch out their time on. It would be a lot better than it is nov,-. We the people would also appreciate if the city council would have a 4-way stop sign at the bank cornet" and Del- Mar's. When I bought groceries at the store the other day I was going home from the store and couldn't get through on the street running north around from the post office on account of double parking teenagers necking and also four bicycles was parked in the street. So, we ask for better police protection in Perkins Signed/ Bob Steele, Perkins Dear Mr. Clarks Thank you so much for the free copies of The Perkins Progress we have received in the past.
