This is embarrassing for the city of East Ridge and quite annoying for the residents that pay taxes there. Sounds like Gobble is coming in and trying to make a difference though, so I applaud the effort. Maybe he'll shape things up!
Ignorance at it's best. That old saying is true; You can't argue with stupid.
Wow. chet123 has the audacity to call other people "narrow minded" and "closed minded" while trying to stir up his/her own propaganda, not to mention the religious slurs-could you please stop referring sarcastically to the "good so-called Christians"?; and while you're at it, learn some grammar and spelling.
The point here is this jerk shouldn't have fallen through the cracks in the penal system. And I'm certain that 100% of our community is disgusted and saddened by the events that took place Saturday and our condolences are with the family of Sgt. Chapin. God rest his soul.
I am disappointed this article neither mentions the organizer of the event nor any of the participants. Great pains were taken to make sure this was a successful and fun event for all involved, yet there is no reference to the actual event that took place 10/24/09. I'm surprised there was video.
