Summer is here and life is more reckless than ever. Recently, there were two accidents alone on Merrick Road, one that, tragically enough, resulted in a fatality and another that involved teenage girls. Ideally, drivers would navigate these busy thoroughfares in a prudent fashion, but that’s never going to be the case, especially in the summer. On top of this, several local young people, in recent days, have found themselves held up at gunpoint. One incident was late at night, the other in the early evening. Both took place on or in the vicinity of Clocks Boulevard and Merrick Road. Local residents are advised to keep this in mind: Where they travel and at what time and above all, the conditions on Merrick Road. Summer evenings are best spent on the front porch (or back porch), talking with family and friends. Summer is here and it’s not all fun.
