Ok..I'm confused. I give Dan a thumbs up for his good deed(Tony and his gang of law enforcers sure as hell weren't there when needed..as usual) and then you tell me that you disagree with me saying you are "lucky" to have people like him around?!?

Here's some advice to you..reread posts before you blindly argue. You posted against a person who shares your same insight.

Here is some advice to you.. I did not say anything about Tony and his gang, although most of them do a fine job.
I do not agree with your name calling. For one, I have lived in Franklinville my whole life and don't consider myself a redneck. As far as cidiots go.. not good either..
Dan did alright, but I'm not sure he is the hero you make him out to be.

You said "Here's some advise to you" yet you never mentioned any of such. You make no sense...again.

And I have lived in the Franklinville area my whole life as well. That makes it 63 years now. If you are going to argue with me about my calling the locals "rednecks", count how many bars are in town and which ones the majority of the town hang at. I assure you that the stagecoach and Longbranch get more attendees on a friday night than any of the churches on a sunday. After you're down with that, count how many broken down cars your neighbor has in front of his/her house.

What it all comes down to is that your sensitivity to certain "names" has over ridden what was a light hearted comment written in order to perk a few smiles. Wait...you aren't one of them red-necks, are you??? LOL

I'm sure Dan did what anyone of us would have done given the chance here in our tight knit community. We have to stick together not fight with our neighbor. I have lived in Frabklinville all but 9 yrs of my life. I love it here and Yes I'm a redneck. Even some of the Wally-os call themselves wally-os. We are a good old home kinda town. Love it here

Greetings A/all
i am an out of towner... I go to the Stagecoach often to listen to the bands. Redneck? not real sure about that statement, i do find it rather off track from the original post. isn't this all about a small town man that would not allow someone to rob a bank? Nothing more tedious then the inventory of the obvious! Lets not argue about a stereotype, but get back to why the forum was started to begin with! Wonderful acts of bravery, and thank you for your unconditional actions....

Well then you must be a drug infested looser, just like all the others who LIVE at the Longbranch or Stagecoach...
