Nah - too much overlap with Joe Hinson's "Whoa! Forum's Choice Award".

BTW, did you all know that Chase is Nitro WV's "Citizen of the Month"??

crazytiger 03-04-2011 12:37 AM

Can't find it. Any evidence?

Yes, his head is growing... Soon, they'll be able to play college football in that dome of his.. Any ideas for names?

Freericks 03-04-2011 01:36 AM

The Rail Pictures Dot Net Arena of course...

:-)

Sorry, Chase... he threw me a big fat fastball... I had no choice but to swing.

Holloran Grade 03-04-2011 01:51 AM

Charles, can you come to my house and hang out for a while?

We need some happiness in the face of absolute adversity cheeriness around I think.

Not that anything bad is going on, but I think you could really improve our moral.:p

Freericks 03-04-2011 01:56 AM

Okay... happy to... what's for dinner.

Um, about your second sentence though "We some happiness in the face of absolute adversity cheeriness around I think." Are you able to move both arms freely? Now look in the mirror. Is one side of your face sagging a little?

Holloran Grade 03-04-2011 02:07 AM

I'm in love with Hammerhead Girl!

I actually went to the newspaper to find a link and post it here, but could not find anything. The newspaper's website (Charleston Gazette) is pretty minimal, lots of useful stuff like obituaries, the news story of the day is Spirit Airlines starting service to their airport. Much better than the cardinal 3 days a week, one of which I think is in the middle of the night.

Edit: I didnt know they had two newspapers (wow!), found the article:
http://www.dailymail.com/News/Putnam...=2&build=cache
It's on page 2.

Council members also honored 15-year old Nitro resident Chase Gunnoe for his contribution to Amtrak System's magazine "Timetable."

The cover of the May-November 2010 issue features a picture of the Amtrak Cardinal crossing the New River at Hawks Nest.

Gunnoe is the first West Virginian to have a photo appear in the publication. He was named Nitro's Citizen of the Month for March.

If you say so, I'm not the one whose head got big enough to think he was slick enough to sneak a fake pan onto the DB. ;)

Didn't know it was published online. That paper is really hard to read online.

I would like to live there, seems fairly tame.

Here its always:

''Man shot over argument about how to grow Marijuana''

''Hawkins county (TN) deputies wrangle monkeys at meth lab raid''

''Kingsport, (TN) drunk driving suspect allegedly bites hospital nurse.''

''No injuries reported in Johnson City, (TN) drive-by shooting''

Kingsport police seize drugs from man slumped over steering wheel.

And the best for last, my next door neighbor...

''Hiltons (VA) woman guilty of first-degree murder''

Oh my GOD, Chase...no wonder your head's so big. Your town must be as boring as its name is exciting.

khalucha 03-05-2011 03:42 AM

Wayne, come to my next of the woods. Shootings happen all the time, drugs are usually in the thousands of dollars worth, and they hate most of the law enforcement agencies, especially the Sheriff.

example here: http://www.azcentral.com/community/n...club-abrk.html

Freericks 03-05-2011 03:49 AM

Wow Kevin... I'll drive right over.

Yeah I've heard a lot of stories about Phoenix, I think I will pass. lol

I just think its crazy here because I live in such a tiny area..

khalucha 03-05-2011 04:55 AM

I am originally from the Jersey Shore and moved out here in June of '04. For the first few months I was like, "Wow, someone was shot!" Then seeing it again and again it was no big deal after a while. It is still the wild west out here.

stevenmwelch 03-05-2011 05:01 AM

Shooting? Damn, they didn't even make the news unless it was 2 or more dead where I come from.. (San Francisco Bay Area)

I'm from North Jersey.

Where down the shore?

Spent much of my childhood summers in Beach Haven. As a teen, was in Wildwood Crest a good deal.

Holloran Grade 03-05-2011 07:27 AM

Question?

Why would you go to a strip club with your ex-wife?

"A 34-year-old man and his ex-wife left a strip club in the 1900 block of North Black Canyon Highway at about 2:30 a.m........"

Why not? Do we know the dynamics of their friendship?

Is it possible that their mutual interest in such venues is both what broke their marriage up and allowed them to build up an enduring friendship afterward?

I used to live in Dover Twp., now Toms River Twp. from what I hear. I first lived in Beachwood then moved to the Pleasant Plains section in '92.

I would go over to Bayhead and watch NJT come into the station. I would also hit up Southern House to get some good food and watch the trains as I ate. As a kid my grandfather would take me to BR&WRR or over to New Hope. I will say the East Coast has a lot of steam compared to out here.

@ Jim I got married and my wife had went into the Air Force. After basic she was transferred to Luke AFB. It was go with her or we live 2000 miles apart from each other. I moved out here with her.

As for the club shooting, that seems to be a trend out here lately. Had a couple of them this year. As for his situation maybe they were "Friends with Benefits" type of thing.

Did my comment fly over your head, Kevin? ;)

I guess so.
