To the Editor:
My name is Tom and I am a proud Newtown skateboarder who uses the skate park at Dickinson [Park] on an almost daily basis, and I recognize an ongoing problem. Whether its because my peers were denied the upbringing I had, or its that they just don’t care, one thing is for certain, the regulars of Newtown skate park don’t know how to clean up after themselves.

Police said they responded to a complaint at about 5:35 pm involving three males who were in a vehicle, one of whom had waved what appeared to be a handgun out of the vehicle’s window at people at the skate park after a verbal dispute there. There were no injuries.
