How does the bombing at the Boston Marathon impact Bureau County?

“I don’t think they will have an effect here in Bureau County. We aren’t a big, urban area and don’t have major events.”

Paul Ernst, Princeton

“It does effect us because there could have been people from here at the Boston Marathon or family members could have been in it.”

Elisabeth Porter, Princeton

“I think it will make us think more carefully about our visits to events in larger cities. When we do go, we will join others in being more observant.”

Mary Gay McKinney, Princeton

“When something like that happens, there are always repercussions and it could happen here. I hope it doesn’t turn the immigration debate negative.”

Barry J. Mayworm, Princeton

“It effects us indirectly. My specific concerns would be regarding racial profiling for people visiting us or residing  here. Another concern is that people may want to fight violence with violence.”

Meagan Johnson, Wyanet
