To the Editor:

Concerning the proposed drug rehab facility for Calverton, there are many questions that come to mind. Has there been a study to determine the impact on the community? One drug addict terrorized the East End, including an armed robbery at the Hess station in Calverton. How many drug addicts will this facility bring to Calverton? What is the release policy from this rehab facility? If they flunk out do they just waltz out the door to Calverton?

Isn’t it enough that we have a giant prison right down the road?
