In 2013, police received numerous complaints about rowdy teens being loud and destructive around a roller rink known as Skate Land, located behind the local Denny's.  The troubles prompted the county to withhold renewal of the venue's amusement hall license; the county had also threatened to revoke the hall's skating license.  After negotiations with the county, Skate Land is now only permitted to hold parties and events Monday through Thursday, and only until 9 P.M.
