" This is the comment you were looking for...Also the comment asking if you were two was because you were nitpicking and missing the whole point. I'm done entertaining this BS. Some people are oblivious to the facts or to just what's trying to be said. Hope you have a great day. ............................. Heather Marie Monroe Ramos It's comical how my comment got picked apart conveniently. Go back and read it again. It's about accepting RESPONSIBILITY FOR ONES ACTIONS and realizing they are not at the MARRIOTT HOTEL. They are in JAIL OR PRISON because of THEIR OWN ACTIONS! If they don't like the conditions then behave like a productive member of society. How trivial and childish that he complain about not having HIS NEWSPAPER. What about the MOTHER, CHILDREN, GRANDCHILDREN, SIBLINGS, FRIENDS AND THEN SOME that he forever has change THEIR lives and will no longer get to see her.

Bring back the carousel at the mall

Franklin Lewis said,

"Carousel? Really? Preschoolers probably don't spend a lot of money, and adults don't usually ride carousels. And who's gonna choose a vacay destination, based on whether a town has one carnival ride in an empty old mall with a lumpy mote? I dare say, Spencer's attracts more revenue than a kiddie ride would. BTW, I wonder why there isn't ALREADY one there, if there's any value in it. If you just NEED a carnival fix....... buy some cotton candy, and drive around that TERRIBLE parking lot real fast." - 6 hours, 59 minutes ago

"Dr Morgan is my physician and a good friend! He has done nothing but help in this community and I know he will prevail from such poor investigation, and journalism. As a friend I know he has attempted to obtain pain mgmt certificate, and even got to obtain certificate to help patients with opioid addiction! He is a good person, would help anyone that came to his door. This man is being victimized of small town politics and this should stop! " - 18 hours, 28 minutes ago

Victoria's Drive Thru Doc indicted after Advocate special investigation

Sherry Slough Sitterle said,

"My husband and I both started gong to Dr. Morgan when we moved back to Victoria in 2010. He is undoubtedly is the best doctor that that we had gone to in years. He not only listens to you but is a personable doctor who spends time with you. I personally overheard a conversations he had with a patient who wanted pain meds. Dr. Morgan refused to give them to him and told him he could get something over the counter. . I took my granddaughter to him for her school physical, and I needed a shot for a knee problem. My granddaughter told Dr. Morgan that she was joining the Air Force after she graduated and wanted to be a nurse. Dr. Morgan was so gracious and talked to her about nursing and the medical field. Shame...Shame...Shame.. for whoever has started this witch hunt in trying to ruin not only a great man, but a great doctor!!!!!!!!" - 21 hours, 20 minutes ago

Victoria's Drive Thru Doc indicted after Advocate special investigation

Ciara ThatsHer Thomas said,

"Dr. Morgan is an amazing Doctor & in all honesty a lot of these doctors have lost patients to Dr. morgan due to his care and sympathy he displays to his patients . I've waited in an ER for 2 hrs to be seen for 15 min. then prescribed narcotics. & FYI Drive thru doc does not distribute any type of narcotics. It actually helps people who cannot afford an $85 doctors visit for 5 min. for allergy medication that cost less than the visit. This whole shenanigan is all for one reason mostly but i will not speak on it , but I will say I hope they re-post Dr.Morgans Innocence in the paper once this B.S is over." - 22 hours, 2 minutes ago

Victoria's Drive Thru Doc indicted after Advocate special investigation

Kurt Killebrew said,

"Good luck trying to find a doc in this town anymore that will treat your chronic or re-occuring pain any longer. About 1/3 of patients who have painful conditions will develop chronic pain. More and more docs are doing just what Mcneill said, referring you to pain management. You better have VERY GOOD insurance and DEEP pockets and have to agree to having invasive procedures done that may or may not help, God forbid you just have low back pain that a few norco and soma a day give you enough relief you can continue to work and get some rest at night. Even worse is to have a chronic pain condition and not have GOOD insurance or you have such a high deductable or co-pay that having a X Ray , MRI, lab work and nerve studies means you cant pay the rent and light bill for several months. The unintended consequence is more patients will suffer needlessly and that just sickens me. " - 23 hours, 7 minutes ago

"Well I like him. He spends time with me when I go see him. He makes me have blood work done every 3 months and has come by my office at lunch to see me when I could not get in. He will not refill pain medicine without seeing you first. Dr. McNeil does not really see patients he uses PAs mostly in his clinics. So I do not see where he has room to talk. Just my opinion as I have been to both doctors." - 1 day, 2 hours ago

The article reports an indictment regarding legal compliance for narcotic distribution and legal percentages of patients that can be prescribed specific classes of drugs from any one practice.

"Please do not believe everything you read, there are no tv's in the cells. And just because someone is in jail does not mean that they have murdered or raped/ harmed someone. there are good people in prison/jail. People do make stupid mistakes and they are paying for there crime, More of your tax dollars are going to having employee gatherings buying useless stuff, I buy government auctions from prisons and hundreds of thousands of dollars are being wasted. So you want to know where ur tax dollars are going look a little closer into that.

Driver rolls truck, spills trash on US 183

Cindy Striedel Dekowski said,

"It is so disappointing to me that you didn't mention the multiple heroic truck drivers who worked diligently and quickly as a team to actually get this man released from where he was pinned in the truck before any law enforcement or EMS arrived. Those guys were heroes in every since of the word rescuing a man they didn't even know. Maybe instead of your headline reading 'Trash spilled on highway" you should talk about this group coming together to help this man---- when I told these guys they were heroes they simply responded "no ma'am just part of the truck driver brotherhood".
