I work in this area of town. This is the second robbery in as many weeks. First the Little Caesar's now this Circle K that I purchase fuel from. The city police department needs to step up patrols in this area. The next business to get hit may very well be the one I work in.

No worries! Once the Mayor gets those round abouts in and all of the trees accounted for our town will be much safer!
