  • Ron Spears has been selling meth in this county for 25 years right out of hydesville he is probably already out but least I got some tar heroin meth amphetamine and other asorted drugs off the streets Bravo EPD pop policing that’s still not even close to the amount they are still out there ruining lives I celebrated my 15 years off meth today

  • ONE of the people in that lineup was a ‘worker’ at a local “recovery program” for a long time. Word is he could be bought for $100 for each day you wanted “off” the program roster!
    Anyone wonder why it is so hard to get and stay clean around here?

    • That’s not true. Donald Rivers was a counselor at Humboldt Recovery Center for many many years and helped many people. He struggled with drugs and when was clean off drugs helped everyone around him. Yes he relapsed and sold drugs and deserves to be locked up. But don’t forget he also did help people. And the fact that you would say something like he would take $100 for each day you wanted off the program roster is probably the stupidest thing I’ve heard all day. NO one forces you to be on a program roster. You’re either there or you leave. You always have the choice. A program is just a large house that people live in while trying to figure out how to get their lives together. It’s not a prison. You sound like you have absolutely no idea wtf you’re talking about. If you’re going to say something that you made up or heard at least make it realistic.

  • Awesome it’s been the best 15 of my life accomplished so many lfe goals all the best gazoo I pray I do another 15

  • Crystal was given a proper name….
