That's interesting... I grew up for 12 years from birth in South Park, one street North of the community center: Rose St, off of 8th.
South Park is the kind of area that I wouldn't go without at least one sidearm and preferably extra ammo. My father wouldn't call in gun shots unless he heard automatic fire; which he can recognize, due to being an in-country Vietnam veteran.
Glad to hear everything went alright down there larz. Take care.
