Local Teen Drinking Issue

I read this article today in the Star-Herald that shares some interesting statistics from Derek Weimer’s first year as the Scotts Bluff County Attorney. Just thought I’d pass along the link, just in case you thought this stuff didn’t happen in our nice little town… Read the article, but here’s the one that stuck out most to me:

“453 minor-in-possession cases”

“‘The MIP number ought to bother everybody,’ Weimer said. ‘Four hundred and fifty-three is an obscene number.’ Combined with 80 cases of adults procuring alcohol for minors, Weimer said there is a serious problem in the community.”
