Columnist Gab Bonesso evokes an African proverb to explain a recent encounter with some local teens.

At first I thought it was due to the road work that’s been occurring on Clever Road towards Kennedy Township. I figured people were getting sick of waiting at that temporary light they have constructed and were using Silver …
