Not In The News
Mere weeks after a drug related incident resulted in an individual being transported by helicopter to a local hospital another individual was again transported by helicopter for treatment. On Wednesday both scanners and social media were busy with chatter about a shooting on South Pittsburg Mountain. We have confirmed that "bystanders" at both instants have strong connections to criminal activity in New Hope and South Pittsburg. All tips and information about criminal activity in New Hope and Marion County should be
passed on to the local police department or to the Marion County Sheriffs Department.
Emails and private messeges to the referenced post were passed on for informative content.
They go about the day with little fanfare content just to provide for the family they love. They take comfort in the tiniest of happenings such as the soft kiss of a child or an "I love you" giggled in that singsong voice during play. Tired at night from the labor to earn an hourly wage, few dreams are remembered as they start a new day. It's the American Dream so many risk life and limb to attain. So many of us fail to appreciate their value until the day we hear that sickness or tragedy has passed their way. These special people, our friends and our neighbors, are always alert to the changes that come to our neighborhoods. They notice that strange car or van that just didn't belong so they jot down a tag number or take a snapshot on their phone and take care to remember what the driver looks like just in case. They remember what the family pets of all their neighbors on their street so they can help if one goes missing. They watchout for the house when a family goes on vacation and they run errands when a car is broken. Thank your lucky stars for the wonder of the Average Citizen who watches over you and yours with such skill that you forget they are even there. Take a pause and look in the mirror today and asked yourself if you are just as good a neighbor and those around you.
Per our communication with local officials we have pulled this report pending further notice.
The Prices for Methamphetamine vary across the Tennessee Valley. The information below can be found at the website http://www.narcoticnews.com/drug-prices/meth/
The answer is simple economics. There is money to be made in manufacturing and dealing METH. The demand was created by unscrupulous businessmen and women who operate outside of the law to make themselves rich and in some cases to support their own drug habits. The prices below are what the dealers pay and what the high volume manufacturers charge. Prices change over time but one thing remains: there is money to be made as long as the criminals survive. It is the responsibility of law abiding citizens to stop these criminals from profiting at the loss of our friends and families.
This section is for wholesale meth prices and the standard for this section is a pound of methamphetamine. The majority of methamphetamine that is available is coming from meth labs in Mexico. Mexican meth is becoming more available in comparison to domestically manufactured meth. Less and less meth is being manufactured in the U.S.A. because of restrictions on the ingredients that are needed to make meth, most notably the restrictions on pseudoephedrine. The purity of meth can fluctuate greatly. Sometimes meth will have a purity of less than 10% and sometimes be greater than 70%. Crystal methamphetamine (aka "ICE") is different than traditional powdered methamphetmine. Crystal meth generally has a higher purity level and looks differently. Crystal meth appears like white crystals and/or chunks of frozen ice. Prices for crystal meth are also usually different than regular meth. The prices below include crystal and/or regular meth when information has been obtained.
We have all known someone who just could not let go after a relationship has ended or even give up after several polite no thank you's after unwanted advances. For some the encounter was a simple and unmemorable event like passing each other in the hallway at work. When a person whether male or female won't go on and leave you alone. When that person escalates his or her behavior to get another's attention or win affections then that is stalking. Unfortuately, sometimes unwanted advances turn violent. If you or someone you or someone you know is going through this or has experienced this in the past, please post your story here.
2016 is no doubt one of the most important election years in the history of the United States. The national political field is covered from every angle by modern day media in an attempt to sway the opinion of the everyday man and woman.
