  • Drag all those pipeline protesters out there to build the dams!

    • Your point make zeros sense and is contradicting. This is exactly what the pipeline protesters are protesting about. Them not letting crude oil in the rivers they’re ancestors have called home for thousands of years is a hard thing for you to understand? Oh but you voted for trump, if you couldn’t see past his bs then this is way too much for you to wrap your head around. Also if you called them they prolly would help. Ya dipwad!

  • Everyone was scavenging that food today like a drunken redneck on payday! Sad really just a bunch of looters!

  • This was a Win Co truck. I am terribly disappointed the local food bank was not made aware of this. The Conservation Corp was there to clean it up and salvage what they could.

  • Was there anything even left after the scavenging picked picked picked!
