Word has it, that they went to turn around behind the Jim Thorpe Market and hit one of those illegally placed piles of topsoil, that are there and then some guy with a chainsaw cut down a tree and it fell on the car

There is a white ford Crown Vic sitting across from Kovatch's body shop, they might be talking about that one. I didn't look for any numbers on it, but it did say Jim Thorpe police on the side. The front was pushed in pretty bad, like it ran in to a nonmoving object. The cow pusher on the front, was pushed through the grill and in to the hood. What do they put them on the cars for in the first place. Is it extra protection for the officers, that don't know how to drive? I always thought, that they were to push broken down vehicles off the road, but around here it seems if somebody breaks down, the cop just sits on their fat butt, in the police vehicle, with it parked behind the broke down car, with their lights on, creating an even bigger obstacle, for the other drivers to have to go around. Don't the PoPo realize, if they stood up when they were eating those powered doughnut, they wouldn't get so much on themselves. I guess they figure it will make it look like they're doing something, plus they get to call one of their buddies to do the tow, not to infir, they get greased.

With all the rain the dirt washed down the river. I guess the dam he built with all those trees he cut down, couldn't hold beck the forces of mother nature.

I was over at Jigger's Store and heard that Michael Labyak had the car out while doing a ride along and hit something up on Kattner's Mountain

People seem to forget that that every time a title transfer takes place in the county and it some what above the assesment price they reaped the benifits of the districts on the aprasails. that meant anyone buying a house and it was reassed the district county and borough got a increase in their tax revenue. wait until next year with the way the housing market is now. that money won't be comming in then see what happens?
