"And I do know that drugs are in rural Nebraska. You think of all the methamphetamine and things that are being made. In our town, we're very lucky. Well, it's a dry town, to begin with. Henderson is a dry town. And I think we're lucky, that our kids have a strong spiritual foundation. But, you know, kids can make mistakes. Kids can make bad choices. And that can happen. And I'm sure there, there are issues in our community. It tends to be more drinking, I think, than drugs because maybe that's a little bit more acceptable to do wrong [laughs] than to do drugs. That [drugs] would be less acceptable. But yes, I'm sure it's there. But it's not to the extent as if you could have in the urban areas."
