Hey what about Jack Whittaker's daughter being charged with possession of cocaine and here he is trying to clean out the drug problems. Sounds kind of hypocritical to me.

Perhaps his daughter's little habit is Jack's main reason for wanting to do something about the drug problems in this area. And, didn't he lose another relative - granddaughter or niece - to a drug addiction problem?

I'm not sure what his motivation is for cleaning up the town, I just hope he does something that will make a difference - soon! But, with our luck, he will be just another person "talking" about what should be done instead of "doing" something to make it happen.

I hear a lot of people talking about the drug problems here and yet it seems to get worse every year. Not much different that the job situation in this area. We all complain about those who sit around on welfare and yet there is nothing here for them to do. Everyone doesn't want to work at McDonald's. And, to be honest, I wouldn't eat there again if my food were being made and served by certain individuals. Want them to get off of welfare and start being productive members of society? Start by providing education and jobs that help to supply those individuals with a little more self-esteem and self-respect. Problem with that idea is, we have no one to turn to for help with this situation. Surely not the government if they themselves are outsourcing to other countries. Taking away jobs instead of providing jobs for American citizens. Why not give those jobs to individuals who live in small towns? They'd still save money - their main concern. People here wouldn't have to be paid $10.00 an hour or more, like most in other states are paid. How many people here would be happy to do the job for $6.00 an hour? Plenty! Especially mothers on welfare and local teens who only have the option of working at McDonalds and Dairy Queen - where they are underpaid and overworked.

So to Jack and all the others around here with money and/or clout. If you want to make a real difference here, how about investing some of that money in this town instead of buying expensive, air-polluting vehicles to show off? We already know you have money. Now how about putting it to good use by doing something to make this town better for our children, our elderly and everyone else in between?

If I had influence and someone was helping a child or grandchild of mine do drugs, I would go after them too. I was helping someone move into an apt and stepped out on the fire escape to smoke and noticed a woman injecting the grandchild of a law enforcment officer. As I later found out, this woman was considered a specialist in showing younger people how to inject.
I guess everyone needs someone to show them the way.
