Great job to this writer. Jim Thorpe is a corrupt little town. People need to realize that. Until they can change who the da's are and the head judge it will never change. I'm not talking about Webb either. Then again most everybody is related and that's how they got their positions. Even by voting. Their relatives vote them in.

What on God's green earth have you been smoking? Their "relatives" voted them in?? That's a damn big family tree. It's obvious you didn't do well with the system.

Meaning its all in who you know. Maybe you should quit smoking what ever you are so your mind is clear and you can see what's going on up there. I don't smoke anything or do illegal things. I'm not in the system but someone I know is and carbon county is going to pay big time for what they have done to them.

If so, where is your big surprise?? See, you ARE smoking something and now you are blowing smoke!!!! Nothing is happening anywhere Chicken Little.

It's coming soon. Like I said when I can post the facts I will. I can not due to the attorneys involved and the investigation going on. Why would I give any of you a heads up who it is?

You would have to ask the da's that question. They still are not handing over info. They are also stalling because they are backed into a corner. Dirty dirty shit going on.
