Boro Snapshot - Leaving children home alone
Snap Candice Cook
Candice Cook - Statesboro: "I think 16 would be a great age for kids to be kept with a 16-year-old because they're usually able to drive and they can actually have a better concept of an emergency or anything that can get them to where they need to go quick - quick hurry." - photo by ARAINA REAVES/Staff
