Typical misinformed Topix post. You're aware that those crosses are placed by the families, right? Which means the girls' parents chose to place those crosses there and the family of Mrs. King has chosen not to. There's nothing odd about it.
There's no "typical misinformed Topix post" here. That's my personal opinion on it. I, meaning me, do find it odd. That's my opinion on it. If Mrs. King's family chose not to put any there, then I respect that. Doesn't mean I can't find it odd there aren't any there for them.

Malcum and Jewel King were two of the best people I ever met. They gave me a home when I had no where else to go, even though I came from a rough family. I married their oldest son, Curtis and was in the wreck with Malcum and Jewel four years ago. Losing Jewel and my baby just about killed me and Malcum and for a long time he blamed himself for what happened. It wasn't his fault. Afterwords it seemed like we couldn't really talk to anyone else about our heartbreak, but we talked to each other often. If I have any regrets when it comes to this whole situation it's that I didn't tell him how much I appreciated his help and kindness to me, we became closer over the years and talked every day sometimes more than once. He was like the father I never had. I'll hold the good memories of him close to my heart forever. My son is taking it very hard, Malcum was his hero.

The fire companies in scott co. Are not trained in medical training that is why they can not move a body or touch it. If a fire man was to pull you from a wreck and you become crippled because of it you can sue him and any by standards that help. Now the emt is trained to help you in a medical emergency. Would you want a ambulance at your house for a fire? No you wouldn't also the fire fighters offer traffic and rubber necks control. And when the trained emt are done doing there jobs and the tow trucks show up the fire fighters clean the road for you and me.

The county just gives these departments enough money to barely keep the bills covered. Most of their training they pay for themselves.

If you want our fire fighters trained for first aid, go to one of there meetings and ask them how to help. I don't know what day they have meetings here but in most places it is monday night. Also talk with the mayor. Also cash donations but be sure to give to the right person to support the fire fighters.

I know for a fact that giving cash to the department in Huntsville is a very bad idea. How many of the boys do you think are on drugs??? They don't drug test. If you are going to help financially, I would call the town hall in Huntsville and ask for a number to inquire about donating funds. Als , maybe the fire department could call the American red Cross and see how much it would cost to be certified in the appropriate training and then we can all chip in and send in the money directly to American Red Cross. This way they all would be trained to do other things besides direct traffic at accident scenes.

There is no one on drugs at the Huntsville Fire Dept. If you have any concerns with them you should call the mayor or the fire chief..There are also plenty of fireman that are emt or paramedics around the county, and most are probably CPR certified also. The Red Cross only teaches CPR I believe, so it looks like it would be easier for a local instructor to do it. These Fire Depts. do a whole lot more than direct traffic at accident scenes. I guess you fail to see them running house fires, brush fires, fire alarms, etc..Instead of running your mouth how about you go help one of these departments out?
