What a great day, so many narcotics and the source out of our community. It is hard to not feel all but hatred towards the people who supplied our neighbors, kids, and -who knows-, maybe friends with that awful poison. I try to understand addiction and feel bad for those who get caught up in it. But dealing drugs for your own selfish gain at the expense of other's lives is just despicable. I pray this guy goes away for a very, very long time.
- Woman from Norwich

Humpity Trumpity wanted a wall, told us some others would pay for it all. The wall would be beautiful, shiny and new, seems spending our money is all he can do. At only five billion this wall is a steal! We'll make it back-you just gotta trust the Art of the Deal! Our bridges are falling our airports are clogged, our highways are rutted and our busses are mobbed. But the wall is all that seemed to matter, He thinks our neighbors never heard of a ladder.

The good news just keeps on coming: "The Donald J.

MFN I referred to I because I pay MY own way and so should YOU. Now with that said I and you pay tax's so welfare can be covered. Guess what some of them have better care than You or Me! Case in point. It's time we get the people off welfare! They tell you don't feed the wild animals as they become dependent on you. Well why are we feeding those that won't work?

" Here we go again New Berlin Mayor Terry Potter failed to bargain a successful contract for the Ambulance with Columbus." Last I knew, it took two (or more) to bargain. Maybe Columbus should take some of the blame for this as well.

"MFN Why should a person be forced to pay for someone else's health care? If you want it fine, get a policy that you want and pay for it.. It's called choice " we all pay for the uninsured's ER visits, But being that the remainder of your comment contained the reference "I" nine times; it would seem all revolves around U. i i me me
- Man from Norwich

“MFN Why should a person be forced to pay for someone else's health care?” lame argument is lame. Why should I pay taxes that fund police? Fire department? Public works? Etc etc etc. our society is already awash in the dreaded socialism that the far right has been using as a bogeyman for so long. In a civilized society we all pay for things that others may use though we don’t. Don’t like it? Try Somalia. It’s a capitalist utopia where what’s yours is yours alone. Stay in school kids. Derp.
- Man from Norwich

MFN Why should a person be forced to pay for someone else's health care? If you want it fine, get a policy that you want and pay for it.. It's called choice. I don't need maternity care, I don't need diabetic care, or any other special needs care insurance. I have basic insurance and that's all I pay for. I have car insurance with lability that will pay if I need a ambulance or hospitals, dr.s services if in a accident. I have home owners insurance if injured at home that will pay even you, if I or my dogs attack you for trespassing even though I have no trespassing signs.

Sorry but your leaders forced out Superior Ambulance service years ago. You said you were going to put in Volunteer Ambulance services. Well people, you messed it up and now people don't have qualified ambulance services. Nothing in life is FREE. Bring back the paid services that your insurance should cover. I for one would rather have them back in operation than have limited services. Live and learn or die waiting for them. You get what you pay for.

The suit named six defendants, including the Broward school district and the Broward Sheriff's Office, as well as school deputy Scot Peterson and campus monitor Andrew Medina.
