Alcohol Sales

I am a sophomore at Adolf Camarillo High School. I have many concerns about Longs Drugs' plan to build a store that would sell liquor across the street from our school, which the Camarillo City Council has approved.

If the City Council does not think kids will find a way to get alcohol they are wrong. I have seen how sneaky kids can be, and there are many ways to get alcohol purchased for them.

I am proud to go to a school that promotes a Safe and Sober After-Prom Party. When City Council members vote again on approval of a liquor license at this location, I sincerely hope they will reconsider their decision--for all the children of Camarillo.
