Well, what a nerve the government types have to be less than fully truthful! Hey, about ten years ago, after suffering lots of property damage because of a flood of rocks, mud and tires washed off of Township road 117 towards County Road 8, a county commissioner told me and my father-in-law that "this will never happen again". Guess what? It did happen again on June 28th. Click on my video to see the nastiness. Nobody wants to correct the problem. ******* And YOU think you have problems with your little sign?

Ms. Petrilla, reading your comment made me laugh. You came across as quite a little princess, who for the first time in your life was treated "mean" with what you seem to perceive as disrespect. As far as your MH/Recovery board or whatever it is you claim to be, not real impressed with MH treatment in this area. You have ctr that's far more about enabling than empowering, a business you call funnel tax dollars to failed treatment facilities, write an occasional puff piece for this paper,probably give a talk here and there about all your doing to fight mental illness and drug addiction while we watch the numbers of mentally ill and druggies climb yearly. As far as improving the neighborhood. That Beacon Hill House looks more like a crack house when you drive by and have heard it more than likely is such. Sorry, that block with all the MH bldgs has not improved a thing in the north end. Don't know you or Perkins but glad he able to kick you off your high horse.
