Citizens of Taylorville will vote on a tax referendum on April 4th to show if they are willing to have an increase on their taxes to help the school system or not. Christian County Sheriff Bruce Kettelkamp added to the conversation saying, the public should vote yes to the tax increase because if the students don't have extracurricular activities to bind their time, it could cause more crime in the area.
Kettelkamp said idle time needs to be filled in kids lives, and at times teens fill that time with negative behaviors including crime.
Kettelkamp said when he was a student, he hated school, but he filled his time with sports, where he was able to find good life mentors, and grow and develop the frame of who he is today.
