    Are the millennials buying up houses here? Maybe thats what this increase in crimes about. it looks like a bunch of old blighted empty row homes everywhere with high school football references in the front yard. Garbage as usual strewn all over the side of the road with the tangled mountain laurel and coal bank/windmill back drop.

    Thank goodness that Good Samaritan didn’t get accosted by that street roamer. He probably didn’t cause skook males prefer watching youth sports with each other

    Could be one Of those strange Frackville or ashland street roamers. These oddities Usually wear fire company half shirts, Spartan sweatpants from 1989 and or psu starter jackets from Kmart as outerwear.

      The boldest roamer I ever heard of was that Denny Barker guy from mount Carmel. He followed a family home and went right inside two finger touching himself. Then again, that former Ashland mayor was pretty bold to be messenging boys about their sexual partners. D.A.R.E. it’s a sick area. That SUV probably has Devito’s pizza sauce all over it
