Shaun Austin's girlfriend, Sherri Steffey in in the Russell court records for drugs. He is there for firing a gun into a occupied home and the Couchs' names Chris, Strphanie, and Ashley are in Wise, Washington and Russell court records for lots of charges.... I guess Latch (Lisa Couch) is now going by her old name of Culbertson in the Washington County records. Did Dan finally divorce her? So, Billybob, where's your defense now?

Oh gosh, this is a long one, to be continued in second post!
I just recently joined and have read most of the postings and have just completed reading all 18 pages of this one.(and I wrote this really long reply, and WHOOSH, it's GONE!)
I am going to try my best to "rewrite" it.... whew..........
While visiting my Aunt a few years back in Coeburn, she had a Scanner, and there was not a day or night that went by that we didn't hear of an overdose! She told me that it was mainly due to Oxycontin and that people were selling it, buying it or stealing it from patient's homes. At first, I was really surprised.
After reading this entire topic, there was a lot of jumping around here and there and I kept up as best I could.
I have lived all over the country and overseas, but considered Norton home. And believe me, there are drug problems everywhere, not just in Wise County and Southern VA.
For those who are not from there, never have been there, the entire area is beautiful with the Appalachian mountains surrounding it. However, as with many small, isolated small towns, the area is deprived of funding for education and the unemployment is very high, hardly any gainful employment opportunities at all. Many, many families are on the edge of/or in the poverty level.
I saw where someone wrote on here, that "we" (I include myself in this) were "stupid" and "inbred!" That is so very wrong! The people's from this region are some of the most intelligent and resourceful people that I have ever met! If we were to go into an actual "Depression" as in the 1930's and '40's, I would head straight back to Wise, because I KNOW, COUNTRY FOLK WILL SURVIVE! The Barter Theatre is a prime example of this. Back in the depression, the folks up north were starving and came to South Western VA to "barter" for food from the country folk who had plenty.(The northerners would put on shows for entertainment in an old barn, THUS----the Barter Theatre was born. The folks from this region have always, always, had a will to survive. They are at a disadvantage though because of reasons listed above concerning employment, or lack of, and affording education. They are also couragous and generous people.
The younger crowd has nothing to do, there is no entertainment for them, so they "find" their own entertainment. Same with the adults as well, they are very limited with access to any type of fulfilling leisure time, so they also "find" their own. DRUGS, as well as Alcohol become the "find."

(continued from first post)
I am a cancer survivor x 4 and have had 26 operations and live up in northern Virginia. Things are different here with medications. I have more metal in my body than most new automobiles! So perhaps you may have an idea of the level of pain I live with daily. Several years ago, they started increasing my medications to a level and type that my doctors told me to get a SAFE! I did! Only to have someone break in and steal the SAFE! NO MORE. It has gotten so bad that I am on a Hickman and medication is delivered through a system that can't be tampered with.
Here, I see a Pain Mgmt. Specialist. A regular doctor (MD) can't write patients every month for narcotics, IT HAS TO BE DONE THRU THE Specialist. They send that info. immediately to the DEA and every three (3) months, they have to account for each and every drug prescribed. There is NO doctor shopping. The doctors are monitored very, VERY closely.
Unfortunately, the docs down in the Wise area are not being held accountable for their actions AND THEY MUST! Also, Law enforcement, and any county/state/city agencies MUST be held accountble also. The STATE has neglected to fund the projects to do this monitoring, or they just don't care, like we are a "lost" society, "out of site, out of mind." How TERRIBLE!
I saw a lot of anger in some of the blogs. It isn't doing anyone any good for name calling or "narcing" out people. Use that anger for a good purpose. Put your pens to work and write the proper authorities, start using the phones and calling the Govenor and DEMANDING HELP in STATE AND FEDERAL AID.(I was glad to see the two young ladies make friends again:)
My pain is addicted to this medication. I can't even bare to think about anyone who is addicted to it otherwise or even as my pain is. I feel so badly for you.
If you have an addiction, please, please try and get help.
If you are a recovering addict, I Pray that you will continue the right path and help others.
For all of you from Southern Western VA, I hope and Pray that you will be able to get this drug problem under control with the funding and proper help you need. And that ALL the AGENCIES are ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS.

Take care of yourselves and each other...

Kitty

To look out, I know Richard he is a good person who like other Garretts make some really big crapy mistakes, usually because of some nasty women so if you plan on being with him be strong because he will need it. I love him, tone, jodi and even hunk they have all been good to me. Life with a Garrett is not easy and especially the other Garrett's (Garrette's)if you know who I am talking about. Keept him straight he deserves another chance.
I love Richard more than you can imagine, I will always watch out for hi. He is my happiness and is a different man today. I am proud to say that we will be married within the next cpl weeks. Richard is on H*** of a man. He is clean working and loves life. I am so lucky. Thanks for your wonderful comments about Richard...
