    I filed a complaint about this place with the State in October of 2009 and got a letter back saying they didn’t find anything wrong there,I guess they must have had their eyes closed while they were there. I had a nephew there for almost a month back in October/November of 2009. I have much more to say on this horrible place, my number is 731-819-7954. Please call me. Thank you.
