amused 2 years, 10 months ago on Two shot at Silos birthday party

It really wasn't even necessary for the Citizen to post the address or the name of the subdivision where this happened, we all pretty much knew where this occurred as soon as "party" and "shooting" were mentioned.

Thinking about the beautiful green rolling grassy fields that used stretch out behind those white silos just makes me want to cry.

Also arrested on a "probation violation." If the judge had been allowed to order that he have the ever-living-you-know-what beaten out of him the first time he got in trouble instead of putting him on probation (what a joke), he might know what it feels like and not be doing it to a woman in the hospital.

Eagerly looking forward to reading about his future criminal exploits and career in the Citizen.


amused 2 years, 10 months ago on School Crime Report for Jan. 11, 2013

What?!? There is a running column in the paper now about "school crime"?

If i was ever unsure about whether I made the right decision a few years ago to move my family and kids out of Newton County and away from what used to be a half-way decent place to live, I certainly am sure now.

Good Grief.

Just when it seems like there is never any good news... What a fantastic Christmas present for the parents and school children of Newton County.
