  • “a dispute with he property owner” in a closed motel, full of junkie needles and crap.

    she is a delusional junkie, who is dangerous and doesn’t want help getting clean.

  • When I saw the photos from yesterday, first thing I showed my wife was the guy who burned it down. I guess I stand corrected, that’s a female somehow

  • [edit] My uncle Fred 1st owed them when it was the Branding Iron,only their was a restaurant with a pool and slide. I think he would turn over in his grave if he saw it now😭such a shame a slum lord like Squires got them.

  • Food for thought

    I bet squires burnt it down for ins money and promised some money to some other dirbags to say they saw her running from there since they sqabbled. Question now is which of the three is relying on the other two to be less credible … Lol.

  • My apologies Kym,I just realized what I said.im sorry

  • I idk who the owner of those tweekside bayverly sulm is but i bet it would make for a nice walkby wax motercycle paid admission museum each room showcasing the rise of the motercycle some being real is not a problem but some has to be wax for insurance cost of repacing the real oh whats done is done to hell with peace

  • she did the town a favor if she did it .she should get a medal that whole area is sour and should burn to the ground .put another gas station there to be robbed .

    • She did the town a great improvement on the landscaping to that area. 😉 We have a lot of slumlords and since taxes are already high it makes owners not be able to do upkeep,
      I’m not talking about the Squires though. They are in their own category (how do they sleep? knowing they are creating a slop pile of their investment. If you get in over your head, get out of some of them, and spend the money on the buildings that are worth saving. I’m so glad I never did drugs and drink. Watching friends die etc. was also a way to be shaken “cold sober”

  • Glad to see the herion hilton gone

    • nice to see educated christian is still an oxymoron. doesn’t self-righteousness feel great!

      What does the Bible say about self-righteousness? – Got Questions?
      https://www.gotquestions.org/self-righteousness.html

      -“Although any serious Christian would recognize the error of this thought, because of our sin nature, it is a constant temptation to all of us to believe we are, or can be, righteous in and of ourselves. In the New Testament, Jesus and the apostle Paul came down particularly hard on those who attempted to live in self-righteousness.” -snip. -snap.

  • So, just to be clear, the courts rule against Squires et al concerning their overall poor property management and general shiestiness.

    A couple of weeks later, another Squires slum is set on fire by some random person, and the city gets to foot the bill for the demolition and disposal of an already condemned property…

    Yep, seems legit.
