There have been six shootings in Millville so far in 2008. Six! In a city of under 30,000 (more data here). Apparently the Bloods and Crips are warring.
We don't hang out in downtown Millville, where these shootings are happening, too much. But, our church is right in the center of this area. It's one of those old downtown churches and the neighborhood around it has changed quite a bit in the last hundred years, even the last fifty.
It's scary. We have some decisions to make in the next year-ish, anyway. Now that I'll be working full-time, we can really start to look for the house (and school district) we want to settle into forever.
