-- — I have been a strong advocate of Buy Berrien but unfortunately since I have been furloughed, had my city and county taxes increased (even though the market value of my property has greatly decreased) and my insurance has gone up over $100 per month, I will no longer be able to Buy Berrien. I am forced to look at other markets. Berrien may want me to place my faith in them but they haven't placed their faith in me.
If you don't have a costume at Halloween you are not trick-or-treating, you're begging. And please stop the "drive-by trick or treating.” If my neighborhood is good enough to come into, then at least park your car and walk around. Halloween is getting tackier every year.
