Both Sheriff Nothstein and Commissioner Gerhard should be ashamed of themselves for the interviews they gave to the Times News and Standard Speaker. someone should tape their mouths shut !

Yeah, those two aren't very bright. I feel bad for the wife after the Commissioner's comments, who is he to embarrass her. I guess we should all listen when he speaks like the 40%+ tax increase was good for us. How's the selling of the Packerton Yards going? Keep smiling.

Guess neither one heard about thinking before you speak. Dave's death is not about them. Grandstanding. Will be interesting to see how all the blunders are explained. I don't think Gerhard has a clue about anything and the sheriff is just a lost cause.

I hope someone calls out the commissioner for his remarks in the Standard Speaker. How would he like it if that was said about him or his family?

Midas was in the way and had to go. You don't toe the line then you got to go.

While you all are yapping about the past I am looking into buying stock in the private company that will be purchasing some of the assets of the Hazleton City Authority. Hazleton needs to liquidate before the sp i cks take the city government over.

It's all about money.

We think the 2nd cop should have a DNA test done, once the child is born in Dec. then we'll know for sure why the first cop expired.

To RLBK exactly what does Judge Matika have to do with any of this ? And aren't you the one who made claims all over Topix that there would be big news breaking about Judge Nanovic ? Nothing ever came of that !

So now you are spreading rumors that people are spreading rumors. Nice. Did you just get out of jail?? Or was your kid taken from you? Must be some vendetta you got there.

Nope. Never ever been arrested. I didn't spread rumors. Also my lovely children are all safe at home with me where they belong and are model citizens. Thank you for being so concerned.

I don't understand why people on here are so vicious. This was Dave's life not yours so don't be concerned nor occupied with his. He's gone and gone without answers to questions which may never be answered. Let's leave it at that. Tomorrow I will be paying my respects to my friends family. Maybe all of you should respect them too.

Wasn't talking about the judge. My husband works with his brother. And this isn't about me. Dave was a great man. How dare anybody post or speak that crap about him. It's none of anybody's business. May he RIP
