What living in downtown Grass Valley can be like

I’m writing in response to the article of March 19 “GV man charged with battery against a teen-ager.”

My husband and I own a home within walking distance to downtown Grass Valley. We really enjoy being able to walk uptown to pick-up our mail and have dinner on an occasional Friday night.

What we do not enjoy are the very rude teen-age boys. They stand in the middle of the sidewalk and won’t move to let people by. They throw trash in our yard. I ask them to pick it up and they laugh at me. They spit on the sidewalk in front you. They make rude gestures to you as you walk by. They use profanity as a second language. They just seem to be hanging out with their friends trying to stir up some type of trouble. My husband has asked them to move so that I may pass on the sidewalk, and they tell him to (you can guess). More than once I have had to tell my husband to cool his jets and not worry about their rude behavior.

So we understand how someone could get fed up with the rude behavior.
