... but every area in this country has sex offenders living there. I live in a very upscale community, and there are two separate registered sex offenders within a five minute walk from my house! The Catholic diocese I belonged to, before leaving the Church, had several perverts working there as priests. Frankly, I would much rather raise my kids in Trona than have them be Catholic altar boys.
Also, I would be much more concerned in many urban areas with my kids getting shot while walking down the street, via a drive-by. Let's not bash Trona-- I have always enjoyed my trips through there on my way to Death Valley, because it is an interesting little town with many more beautiful things within a few hours driving distance than my town, or most other people here's towns, i.e. Death Valley, Panamints, Mojave, Mt. Whitney, Owens Valley, eastern Sierras, etc.
No matter where you live, whether it be a farming town in Iowa, fishing village in Alaska, or a big city, you will find great people who would make excellent friends, as well as no good SOBS who you don't want to ever associate with. So, let's not bash Trona, and let's realize that no matter where you are, every community has its problem residents and fair share of good people.
