    The liat is very disheartening. We need to pray that people use better judgement. God gave us a free will and therefore can’t intercept those plans. However, we can pray that God shows them the light. Happy Thanksgiving to Cumberland. You deserve people who really want to live here in peace and harmony.

    There are Always ALOT of Failure to Appears. .. From unfortunate personal experiences with family members, I’ve witnessed FTA’s occurring due to COURT Clerical Errors~ This should be evaluated to find a way to prevent this because it’s a waste of resources, tax dollars, officers, etc. .. and the problems created for the offenders!
