Tonya Hessler and her husband own Hesslers Carpet in Warsaw. Looks as though they sell more than carpet! How are we as a community supossed to trust these people in our homes and businesses? What are we subjecting our families to? And what then are we supporting? How can we preach to our children to "be drug free" and support this families business practices? We as a community need to take a stand to build a stronger community by not financially supporting this carpet/drug store.

This business has been around for years and is/was owned by Tonya's husbands family. This was a mistake on Tonya's part. We ALL make mistakes! Nobody is perfect. Helser Carpet is an exceptional business and they do very good work. This particular incident should not have negative effects on Helser Carpet. It was Tonya's mistake, not her husbands, and certainly not any of their workers. Are you saying that they should all be punished for one persons mistake? I think not. I have known Tonya and her husband for many years. In fact our children play soccer together. Tonya is a very sweet, kind-hearted person! Although, I do not agree with what she did, I am not going to hold it against her. She probably feels bad enough about it already. I am not here to judge, it is not my place, nor is it yours, Richelle! By the way, the next time you want to point out other persons shortcomings, you should probably check yourself. "Hesslers Carpet"? Its Helsers Carpet! If you actually belonged to the Warsaw Community, you would know this.

Prohibition has not in the past 100 years 'built a better community' so by what kind of asinine logic do you think that flaunting your narcissistic, self-righteous, intolerant hate mongering will ever build a better community?

Better communities are built on love, not hate and such abstract phenomenons of humanity don't give two shits about whatever your skeletons are because you're human and that means you fuck up too.

Last time I checked, EVERYONE's shit in WL stinks to high hell from breathing the polluted vapors off that nasty lake.

Michelle- you sound a little jiffy about this. We are NOT stupid, her husband knew about this and it put cash in his pocket too. The only way you get this drug is prescription and getting off of Meth. This does hurt business. Even their carpet business.

Judge Not, Lest You Be Judged. There two types of peoples, those who do dirt and get caught and then those who do dirt and don't get caught. Man is full of flaws, everyone makes mistakes and I'm more than sure this woman has been living a very real learning experience from this matter. Anyone can go buy Methadone at a methadone clinic from the government! All you need is the cash and the habit. I'm not saying in anyway she should have sold those dones(slang), but come-on, lets get real. This community has some deep animosity towards methadone and i realize there been deaths related there-to. Granted it needs to be controlled butt all those deaths were not solely methadone. they were caused by the mixing of and or other complications. Ive been trough countless drug programs, jail, prison, spiritual relations and to tell you the truth, being percribed methadone along w/ counseling, drug screens incentives etc... It has enabled me to stay out of trouble for eight years, get my life in order and be a productive member of this community. There isn't anything any of y'all has come up with better so I don't care to hear all the negative garbage about the drug itself. Point-in-focus, its about Tonya's judgment/behavior not about the business or the methadone. This community has a lot of drug abusers and until we can find a workable, legal path for everyone of us, we'll continue to have these problems. We need to be more compassionate and stop blocking people out or locking them away forever. Heck, if I had the support and resources Id put together an outreach program with several options available. The Bowen Center here is a joke. The Serenity House is a joke. These places they don't have what it takes. There are answers and if we pull together instead of bickering about wither or not we should buy carpet at such an such place, we can make a difference.

You need to go to one of the community information meetings then. Even our police, drug task-force and community professionals have advised to to shop where drugs are promoted. Hey, I'm not against methadone or mixing it. I say go for it and don't wake up!! Buy it !! have a great sleep.... if ur stupid enough to take it.
Ur probably on the shit too since ya know the slag - "done". You go bubby. Support those druggies and the carpet chic seller it, because no one else working and paying into our community wants the drugs here.
Dones- get a life- what r ur solutions besides putting down those people trying like serenity-house etc. At least the dumb asses are grouped together. U just want to not put down the woman seller it in her shaggy carpet. I get it. U lost ur provider?

You must be the guy he was hijacking wifi from. Although I rather agree with you. Seems to me better just to let people use drugs and off themselves if they can't handle it so that those who really want help and to take care of themselves, their lives and their children can seek help without fear of persecution for a mental and social problem that's treated as a criminal problem for the purposes of economic disparity and inflation of an overstated 'problem' that has existed since before we can remember. Seems to me to be idolatry to be personifying drugs as responsible for our actions rather than own up to the fact that we've squandered this inheritance.

Of course her husband knew about it, as a matter fact he was making her do it. I am sure there was some other bad things going on behind the scene(DV). She needed love and support and his entire family treated her like shit. Don't let the nice smile fool you. If you are married and selling drugs, trust me everyone in the family knows.

I guess August 6, 2013 answers the questions of whether or not her husband knew what was going on. Everyone has the right to make a living so don't take that away. Time to look in the mirror and stop blaming everyone else for your mistakes.
