Drivetime Mahatma: Night din, doughnuts irk at park

posted: 05/30/2015 3:16 a.m. Discuss

Dear Mahatma: I live near Murray Park, where there are many incidents of people doing doughnuts. It's also common to have loud motorcyclists speeding on Rebsamen Park Road. Why are police officers regularly stationed along Rebsamen in the day when there is little evidence of law enforcement late at night when the real problems occur? -- Proud City Taxpayer

posted: 05/29/2015 1:48 a.m. Discuss

We enjoy each other's company, but over the last couple of years he has been making disparaging remarks on the subject of politics.
