    An independant card too! Keep voting Democrat!

      The cards name is hilarious! Nothing “independent “ about it, silly liberals! Need to call it the Entitlement Card and give it zebra stripes, to cover most of society’s moochers.

    Another POS dealer off the streets. Get rid of them all, they contribute nothing, take anything they can get their hands on, and profit off of the miserable lives their product helped crate. I am not giving a pass to the junkies, they are responsible for their own addictions. This doesn’t mean the dealers don’t share in the responsibility.

      Your analysis, grasp of the English language and how well you so eloquently speak of the situation is astonishing.

      LOL if only you were smart enough to comprehend how dumb you sound. You’re pathetic.

    This is what is wrong with world drugs taking over. Make a example of both of them put them under the jail and or in the ground. Worthless is what you call both of them. How about a job and work like everybody else. @@@@ has to end.

    Pure trash. Article fails to mention Brodie was released on $50,000 bond and Simms released after posting $100. They are walking free today.

    Is it funny that the drug dealers didn’t even spring for the good sandwich bags?

    I was wondering who was keeping all the dollar stores in business around here!

    I only count $1062 in the pic. Did someone borrow a couple bucks for some donuts?

    • The Greenery on November 9, 2017 at 5:49 am

      The lady from the flower shop charges $4 for arranging the displays

  10. Charles on November 8, 2017 at 1:50 pm

    So nice to see couples involved in small businesses together.
