In my little town here in southwest PA the fire alarm sounds at 9:45 every night.

Sounds like your little town in southwest PA has a rabidly out-of-control city council bent on ruling the lives of its citizens. That sort of government interference in people's private lives is inexcusable, IMO.

Not only does it seek to usurp the authority of the parents, but it greatly limits the opportunities available to 16 and 17 years olds who are looking for part-time, after school jobs. When I was in high school, I bagged groceries until the store closed at 10 p.m. and then mopped the store until I got off work at midnight.

Have you considered running for office against these communists on your city council?

Someone under 18 can still be out at night with someone over 18. If a youngster wants to get a job that keeps them out past curfew,the parents can pick them up. Having a curfew holds the parents responsible if the youngster is caught out at night. Thus making the parent keep an eye on their kids so the kids aren’t out getting into trouble.
