What the heck is going on in Cuy. falls? Geez, when I was growing up there, you couldn't so much as j-walk without getting in trouble. Times sure have changed in this small homey community. Sad, very sad.

My Question is.... Why are people leaving valueables in a locked or unlocked car ????
THOMAS KANE September 05, 2012 at 06:24 PM
yeah; it doesnt make sense .1.We use to be able too leave things unsecured.but unfortunately Big city has come home too little city.2.ALL this robbing,burgalizing,stealing leads too think that something different is going on in the streets of the Falls.I have a feeling it has something too do with meth.guns and meds and money.who grabs just $5?Like I said before its quick hit,quick sell stuff,kind of things one would do in keeping a habit going.yeah they are not stealing lawn tools to go towork.
