Q: I want to know what do they have planned for the old American Crayon Company? Are they going to take it down? I really think they should because that is a very old building and sooner or later stuff is going to fall from that building and hurt someone. Since a lot of kids from Sandusky High School walk that way everyday, I care about the students and community safety. Let me know what they have planned to do with that old building. Thanks - Scott from Sandusky
