Wow, 617 plants X 5 gallons of water per day = 3,085 gallons. No doubt, marijuana is more important than our showers or drinking water! 3,085x 180 days = 555,300 gallons of water. Now, do any of you “out there” get the picture? Only 617 plants, small grow compared to some. Better wake up folks!!

      The three La Contenta suspects were arrested and booked into the county jail while the other suspects were issued a citation and left free. Why the seeming disparity?

    Tobacco, bad! Marijuana, really bad! Alcohol, “in moderation” not bad! Abuse any of the above, your life is on short notice! This is true and correct!

After watching the video of the Murphys community meeting on crime and mayhem this angers me. Stated over and over not enough law enforcement to protect our communities ,but there is the same law enforcement being used for this. This us unacceptable and just wrong.

    Wine tasting and Pot tasting in Murphys would provide the needed law enforcement.

There aren’t enough jobs in this county that pay more than a few dollars over minimum wage. Gotta make money however you can.

    That tarp hanging on the right side has a shape like the Grim Reaper. Anyone ever notice that? Scary!
