I’M WRITING ABOUT the article by Paul Ruffin, “Battered Neighborhood Syndrome” (5/31). I stated to the writer that at our old location, 3737 10th St. NE, Red would bother our parents. At our new location, 3737 12th St. NE, he does not bother the children or parents. It bothers me that pictures were taken of I CARE CHILD Development Center for this particular article. The pictures portray Red attacking our location. I do not want parents to worry that while they are at work outsiders are bothering their children. I CARE CHILD Development Center has been in operation for 12 successful years, and I would hate to see our reputation ruined because of misrepresentation.
