This hasn't been in the news.

The courthouse in Hawthorne is closed and will remain closed for another week because a four gallon container of mercury was spilled in the basement and needs to be cleaned up.

Inmates have been moved to other jails, deputies cannot cannot eneter the building, county business has been relagated to the parking lot.

This is being covered up, yet everyone in town knows about the problem and the yellow caution tape is evident.

Hey Dawny! This kind of stuff would make good material for a book!"Secrets and Cover-ups in Mineral County"!

Do you know anymore "ghost's" this county "NEEDS" to hide?

How are things in Reno?

Or was there a Meth Lab at work down there in the basement run by inmates and it just got out of hand?

Funny thing that is "four gallon container of "????" mercury did you say?

Was this where we had last years County Sience Fair? I don't remember having a Black & White Photo Lab down there. So whats with all the silver stuff?
