    Did this mouthbreather really not understand that schools have surveillance cameras? You just can’t fix stupid. Yet another upstanding citizen of Lincoln County. Is that whole country just filled with drug addicts, criminals and pedophiles? That is all you hear about up there.

      Don’t forget, this is the school district that sponsored the mix movement. The whole city, county, and beyond went above and beyond to support one teacher. Lincoln County will produce many spectacular people. Just because what you hear on the news up here is bad, doesn’t mean that everything is bad up here.
