Curfew coming for teenagers

SELMA — The city council here took a first reading on a proposed ordinance to issue a curfew for those under 18 from midnight to 5 a.m.

District Judge Bob Armstrong talked about the curfew as another “brick in the wall” to help protect youths and keep them out of trouble. Armstrong is also the juvenile court judge.

The curfew is liberal with exceptions, including those for youths who work, attend school or church functions or dances and who are with their parents.
