This is horrible. PLEASE FIGHT IT WITH ALL THAT YOU HAVE!!!!!!!!!! Investigate those who have planned it. If any of the rest of us who had Lawrence County connections but don't live there can help stop it let us know!

Heather please be VERY careful with information on a public forum as you could possibly set your husband up for inmate retaliation!!!! I see this often among inmates.

Why would you ever be excited that this didn't happen. If your ex-con boy toy can't take the heat- MOVE. People there need jobs, your economy is way past tanking, and your community is dying. Pull your head out of the sand (or other similar places) and get a grip. Your local community shouldn't suffer because of ignorant decisions- yours, his, or any other community member that is suggesting that a viable option for jobs should be sent to another community.
Sometimes I think that they purposely oxygen deprived some of you when you were infants.
You're community is DYING!!!!
