Motorcycles disturb quiet neighborhood

Editor, On the afternoon of June 20, my quiet neighborhood of Sharon, Lesa and Elaine streets bordering the usually serene Irene B. Thomas Park was basically "occupied" by a large, loud motorcycle group. I called the Hinesville Police Department and was informed by the HPD that about four or five people called about this incident. The motorcycle group involved about 30-40 motorcycles and had two individuals on private property on Sharon Street near the park entrance videotaping their entrance. Thankfully, the Hinesville police responded in force, and the "occupying force" quieted down and left in an orderly manner.
