he didnt sucker punch him..he cracked him in face with a coffee mug and the cops were there. All these adults are fightin and bickerin and all these kids who work for this every year are the ones who are gonna suffer...seriously the boards need to get it together they are setting a horrible example!! Shame on all involved.

stranger, how could you have had a seatbelt on with your head over the back seat while your feet were in the front seat kicking out the window like a little sissy, all the while screaming for your wife to drive off? Guess all the witnesses are liars. By the way you were the one who ran away and called the cops to save your own butt. coward

The best thing would be for the bank to foreclose on the property, set up a new Board and start over. So sad to see what has happened there.

A group takes over the Commons with a forced take over and some people are surprised physical force is now used. If my hunches are right of who all might have been involved in this, then don't forget who all was part of the take over, how it was done, the history of those people and some things might start making sense.

I have been to 1 event at the commons in the l;ast oh,10 years. Doesn't look like I've been missing anything. I could go to the bar if I wanted to see a sissy fight!

That place has been a joke since the day it opened. There has been nothing but infighting going on since day one. It should be shut down and all the activities that take place there moved somewhere inside city limits and well away from all the drama of the Commons. All the people on that particular "fair board" can use that current facility for cage matches amongst themselves.

I don't even go to anything there. I think it should have stayed where it was at. At least it felt like there was more there than it is now. It's just a joke now. No one knows what they are doing and they don't care.

If they didn't care then why are they the ONLY ones in the community devoting so much of their time to even put it on. I went to a meeting-there were ppl there who really care about having a fair for the kids. I don't believe you tried putting it on did you? I didn't have to the time to volunteer as much as I would have liked but I also am not the one griping on here about it.

I used to volunteer all the time. I've worked the fair. Helped with parades. Everything I did to help was done because I wanted to feel more apart of my community. As long as I was doing the work everything was fine. After a few years I started voicing ideas and that was no good. So after several times of trying to make things easier and better I finally just quit. I was told I was there to work not talk.

Maybe Maxwell will lose his right to carry a concealed weopen..I know Rolla would feel safer if he did.

I hope the Maxwells get what they deserved this time. The only way to affect them is through their pocket book and hopefully Johnny Martin will get deep into theirs. What kind of people allow people like Tim and Laurie Spencer to pack guns at the festivals? Are you kidding me? Do we really want to take the chance of a kid getting shot over a few bucks? They are all a disgrace to this community.

What Tim and Laurie Spencer packing guns? I don't think Tim Spencer can get a concealed carry with his medical issues, so was it on his side or was it concealed? What about Laurie, was it on here side or concealed and if concealed does she have a permit?

Also did they pull the guns during festival hours?
