Young `Stephen Kings' should be encouraged

Dear editor, This is in response to the July 5 letter by Alan Cole complaining about a few kids filming a movie using a dummy as part of their project. First of all, sir, if these kids wish to make a movie using a dressed up dummy, instead of being angry with them, why don't we congratulate them for being creative? Instead of causing mischief, vandalism or any other harm to our town, they were creating a movie. Has it occurred to to you that they might be aspiring directors? Do you not believe that Stephen King may have started the same way as a kid? These kids were trying to have some fun and it makes it more and more difficult for them to do so, because of people like yourself who do not agree with something. This is what drives kids to get bored and create chaos in other ways, because something they do, that does not harm anyone, is taken away from them. Next time you see something like this happening, congratulate them for their creativity. Tell them that it is nice to see them doing what they are doing, instead of spray-painting the side of a building or smashing windows. Kids deserve our support so that they can continue to use their minds to make something of themselves and not end up in jail. Jay Fendley, Georgetown
