Dear editor, Re: Feb. 2 letter, Parent echoes call for new movie theatre here. I highly disagree with the idea of a new movie theatre. I've lived in Georgetown my whole life and know what it was like growing up in a small town where you could walk around and feel safe. Not only has Georgetown grown dramatically but the small town feel is quickly diminishing. The traffic is ridiculous, not to mention the amount of crime that has developed. I used to read the police blotter in the newspaper and rarely would read about criminal activity. Now it seems every week the blotter is growing. The more business we bring into this town, the more crime we also bring in. Milton has a new movie theatre and the 15-minute drive to it is hardly a burden. Leaving town to get there is part of the experience. I think in order to keep our town's sanity, the development needs to stop. Everything seems to be about money these days but wouldn't it be nice to go for a stroll at night and not have to be worried about getting assaulted? Let's keep this town as small as we can before it's too late. Or is it already? Amanda King, Georgetown
