What in the hell is going on at the Akin general store.I read on channel 3 news that there was a bomb squad at the Akin general store. Why would anyone want to bomb such a place like that. The school was evacuated for the children's safety! The school was built new in 1949 it is the safest place to be in the town and built during a time that more than just a package across the road was thought to be a problem, like an A bomb was ! So they moverd all the kids to a church across the street.

Akin is so backwards it isn't any wonder their was a false bomb treat. Can't believe it wasn't one of the students trying to get out of school.
Maybe the Grade School will get some precautions for the school such as bomb scares, school shootings, hazzards spills from the rainroad, etc.
The voilence the kids show at that school is something that needs addressed. I know cause I used to work there and was amazed by what goes on there. The school is in the middle of now where and no one really care what goes on. I wish the mine knew how bad it was and not give them any more money.Just last year a kid shot the doors of the school for fun. They are not right on that side of the county. None of them have ever left to know any different all they know is backwards.

most of the people from akin are good people, like me but i moved out a long time ago to a real city where my kids could get a real education. but then you have those who are hillbilly idiots. the ones who never get out of the lil old town. you know and go to places like walmart or community events or sporting events. there are some that are so backward its like they live in the hills of kentucky or something. the supposed bomb was placed there by a guy named roger shelton, per the channel 3 news, an obvious mental case. he thinks the government is out to poison him. he calls himself the time traveler. My parents knew him a long time ago--WEIRDO, but you know thats what happens when you never get out of Akin. everyone on facebook is saying that the owner had a meth lab and thats why the bomb squad showed up but that is all a false lie started by more idiots. the news said some chick owns the store but i was told some former resident of akin, a man, owns it, so who the hell knows. they might have done it themselves to get some attention. a store in a place like akin has to be hurting for business.

close that stupid school make it a community center for them to have fun stuff. let those kids be better than their hillbilly parents. oh no they might learn something. i am so glad some of the good teachers have left and went on to better jobs. leave those teacher there to scream and yell at the children. it happens everyday. they don't teach they scream at them. close it and maybe those kids can have a life. but then were would the teachers get jobs because no one would hire them because they aren't nice.
