I know when I was growing up the word "curfew" sounded like a death sentence. Now that I'm a little older I appreciate it a little more, but understand that teens might not be too crazy about the idea.

Taking into consideration that Monday is Halloween, the Village of Monroe is being proactive when it comes to minors out and about during the mischievous next few days. I say mischievous because as we all know, the night before Halloween is mischief night. I've never participated (I swear!), but I have seen the repercussions. Eggs, shaving cream and good ol' toilet paper have made appearances every now and then in my neighborhood and at this point it just seems tacky.
