HANOVER TOWNSHIP — Police are looking for the driver responsible for a hit and run that trashed some headstones at a cemetery in Luzerne County.

    I take care of some graves of my fsmily members, this surely sickens me to see the distructive damage for these headstones. If i ever catch anyone destroying headstones, you better be sure, i would make.them decorate and clean every single grave in the cemetery.

  • Need Paul Kersey to clean up the streets.......

    More scum that needs to get a free ticket out of here! Are there any morals left in this country?
