Together we can make "Arrow Street Great Again".
Story: Sheriff's deputies investigating convenience store burglary (Posted by nancy007 ~ 09/28/16)
Being that the convenience store is somewhat isolated makes easy target for quick smash and grab burglary. As for taking jabs at law enforcement, this crime could've happened anywhere with little if any leads for police to go forward with. Any local government agency is easy to pick on, county has to work with resources and people that are willing to do the job. For better or worse.
Story: Roettgen pleads guilty to resisting arrest, other charges dropped; Prosecutor calls two officer statements not credible, two officers suspended (Updated Aug. 10 at 10 a.m.) (Posted by nancy007 ~ 08/09/16)
WOW! How embarrassing is it to be those Marshall policemen? Most of the time you hear of the public being critical of police officers action and the courts siding with police. To have the County Prosecutor say this is really saying something about the character of the two policemen and possibly the dept heads? I have always been respectful to law enforcement officers, we need them and we need them to be credible.I believe most in MPD to be. No matter how embarrassing this is for the...
Story: Lighthouse Shelter to close doors Thursday (Posted by nancy007 ~ 05/01/16)
Its unfortunate that the whole thing became one person bank roll, the funds from the government kept the place going. I applaud the people who were genuinely supporting the lighthouse, hopefully something will replace it.

Nice picture and always have got a thrill when I spot them, which isn't that rare if your out in the country during winter month. About a month ago three of them were snacking on something in a field for a couple days east of Miami.

Story: Home sweet Slater: Saline County town reclaims clean image (Posted by nancy007 ~ 08/30/12)
Re-claim..I'm 73 and I guess that claim was long before my time. I just can't help the fact I find many comment coming from these folks being a little condescending. Some of the actions from these folks seems a little self serving, and they seem that way often? As far as slater's mayor showing marshall how its done, you would have to have the support in marshall the mayor in slater has in slater. Then he wouldn't have excuses like council member's blocking anything he tries to do.(in...

Born-n-Raised you have a point. The least one can say is that she has long had a knack for frequently spotting the worst of poor folks, then scornfully unloading on them. For the record: http://www.marshallnews.com/scripts/search/simple.php?query=nancy007&s=comments ;)

Smokin' Cheetah, I, too, thought news was being cynical, but then I read some of nancy007's previous comments. I think he nailed it. She has provided the exact same comments in the past, nearly word for word. C'mon nancy, at least try to fool the people.

While at a local chain department store I noticed a woman at one entrance asking ( financial assistance)help. I had planned on getting cash in store and giving her five dollars. But she was gone , but I did see another woman at other entrance and decided to just go to my car. As I was leaving I seen the first woman driving a truck up to the other woman who was talking to some people. I thought I would go ahead and give them my five dollars, but as I walked pass the back of thier truck it had...

Whats the difference,most charity's keep a third to a half for operating (cost)as far as donating I do enough called taxes,people in better condition to work than me getting goverment check so they can sit on their rear and pop pills and smoke and drink,donate plenty don't doubt it,woman at wal-mart was asking people for gas money to get dis-abled brother to kansas city,was going to give her money until I seen couple cases of beer and four packs of cigerette's she had just bought.

Story: County Commission looks at dire consequences if road tax fails (Posted by nancy007 ~ 03/08/11)
I hope there will be some serious debate over this,with the amount of snow and rain, the roads are going to be in bad shape and a 27 percent loss in funding would probably cost a few jobs to ensure funds for roads

Story: Fertilizer causes stink, raises questions (Posted by the26er ~ 10/20/10)
nancy007 - this is a farming county, the farmers travel the backroads as much as possible to avoid heavier traffic (so someone does not complain about having to slow down until they can pass), and it is currently autumn which means harvest which means even larger equipment called combines and grain trucks, sooooo.... I would imagine the chances are great you may run across one of these on any given day. That is why one must pay special attention at this time of year. Every season has it's...

Nancy007 - if you are referrring to the whole renaming and numbering for 911, yes it is. If you look at other counties they kept "CR---" as the road name, not lane or drive or trail or whatever else Saline County now has. And even though the commission says other surrounding counties have the individual signs for each yard, I would like to know where. I have driven all of the surrounding counties, I have found a few houses with them but then the neighbors won't have them, and not all have...
