What is the story on this woman and her kids? I saw her in the news this week and recognized her as the lady I sat beside at a basketball game at the middle school last year. I am not from Harrisburg, but I remember this lady because she carried on a very loud conversation with someone about how she was going to sue the school (I guess over her son's fight)and all kinds of other crazy topics. She talked non-stop throughout the JV and varsity games and came across as a few crayons short of a box.

Now she's claiming someone hung a noose in the high school gym last February? Is this for real or is she just crazy? From everything I've heard and seen, Harrisburg doesn't seem like a very racist town.

I can only say from what little I have seen, but I can't imagine the school is as racist as some of the towns around here (*ahem* Benton).

Do you have any more details about the noose incident? Is her son being targeted for racial reasons, or because he irritates people? I have seen a few black kids on the football/basketball/track teams over the last couple of years and it always seemed like everyone got along with them okay. But maybe that's just sports for you.

Anyway, I am just curious because I always hate when the news does a story and they only have a few subjective details. Like the whole Goreville/Cairo incident from a couple of years ago. I still run into people who think half the town of Goreville chased the Cairo bus with guns.

I think you completely failed to comprehend what I was saying. It was one dumbass kid in a truck acting on his own, and he didn't even have a gun. Even the Cairo bus driver said as much. But everyone believes the initial media coverage that it was several people firing guns.

Cairo kids innocent? I truly hope you are being sarcastic.

I know of what you speak. Moss' Neals et al. The Burg is a trip. Agreed she is just one player in a click of loud mouths
Ive known Rietta since the 80s and while I havent seen her in a while I see nothing has changed with her.
I cannot imagine having to endure her at a game or any public event really.

Oh dear God, no. Disclosure is the worst. Just a glorified gossip column. They claim to be the only news source that will tell the truth, but I find it hard to trust any "news" source that relies mostly on the testimony of crackheads, meth heads, and other criminals. The rest of the stuff they publish is harassment and slander.
