    The vo-tech woods can easily develop into a nicer town than Sunbury by utlizing all of the rubble from the wrecked skook mall. Doodles already lives in the vo-tech woods

    the only thing norry and the skook are good for is illegal dumping. or yeah and caring about high school sports and pennstate.

      Yes, that area would be considered a dump by most people’s standards but the locals have never been outside of coal country so they don’t know any different. They embrace the black shiny hills and dead vegetation.

    Sunbury is the next Hazleton. I hope the skook pedo street roamers don’t marticulate here. Entire coal region is just in a downward malaise.

    This happened three doors down from us. I never lived in Sunbury in my life till now.. I grew up in Selinsgrove. My boyfriend and I got a apartment in Sunbury so his kids could go to Shik. We both would like them to go to Selinsgrove ..but the mother thinks Shik is a better school haha! This shit is getting out of hand. You woke my step kids up crying they are only 5 and 6 cause they didn’t know what was going on. Finally got them put back to sleep after everything clamed down. We are definitely moving out of Sunbury before June. I’m sure not going to raise my daughter in this shit town! My guess it probably was all over drugs! Sunbury is a joke!

      Get used to it honey. You can’t run from it. The Democrats have saturated your area with future voters and dreamers.. I do feel bad for you and your family though. Just make sure you duck down everytime you walk by your windows and things should be fine.

        What’s funny is that the most vocal around here are typically the least educated, spewing hatred toward people they don’t know nor do they understand.
