  • Looks like Marci’s out of the halfway house..

  • bahahahahahaha…….

  • Wow I bet your ex misses you like a hole in the head. Get some psychiatric help.

  • America LOVES its Bill of Rights but will NEVER Live Up to a Bill of Responsibility…

  • Hope the motorcycle rider will be fine. Ok people, keep an eye out for the van that hit the rider and call the police ASAP! The van driver needs to be taken of the road before he hits someone else and kills them. Nothing but a gutless low life.

  • Everyone knows who it was

  • The through way along the shopping center entrance/exit is incredibly dangerous. Whether you are driving along redwood Way, exiting or entering the parking lot it’s always dicey. Either someone comes popping out of nowhere from the lot, or drivers are commuting too fast. We actually should get speed humps installed along that corridor. It would reduce the speed of some of you hicks racing along that road.
