In Sunday’s World, reporter Michelle McNiel took a comprehensive look at how the city of Wenatchee is trying to address the issue of skateboarders downtown by stricter law enforcement measures.

I can certainly understand the concerns of business owners who are trying to provide an environment conducive to shopping.

It’s tough enough for small businesses to survive these days, without these kinds of challenges.
