    Wow!so many judgemental people,she obviously has a drug problem and needs help,all of you with the hateful comments have never dealt with addiction…walk a mile in someones shoes,hopefully she will now get the help she needs and deserves!!

      Well, Rita Smith, then she needs to place her children in the care of responsible adults UNTIL she gets her proverbial sh*t together, or stop reproducing, altogether.

      She’s not going to “get the help” because she doesn’t WANT the help. That’s the problem with this current feel-sorry-for-the-addict-because-it’s-not-their-fault nonsense. The kids don’t have a frigging choice in this matter. SHE did. Idiot.

      Ha ha ha! I have only heard white trailer trash descended from coal miner garbage from Northeastern Pa. call someone a “hipster doofus” before. Is that a 1970’s thing because you are old, stuck in the past and trying to be clever? Lol. Here’s another NEPA coal miner hit, “oh boy” “oh boy” ha ha ha!

        The past is much brighter than your millenial future. Believe me. Minorities running the country into the ground. I’m sure your generation will be able to fix everything. Oh wait, I forgot, you aren’t capable of fixing anything. You are too worried about being offended and your fact less based opinions. Hahaha. You guys are in for a rough life.

        Hey Doomas, it is a reference to a line in a Seinfeld episode where Elaine calls Kramer a “hipster doofus”. As for your post, I”m thinking it is YOU that is trying to sound clever or funny. Go back to your hole and go back to sleep until March along with your other troll friends.

      Granny’s Dutch Oven in Frackville is holding a block party New Year’s eve. That’s where I’m going. All you can drink expired Yuengling on tap AND Boilo. (bring your own cups) 1980’s kickback highschool football jersey raffle. Lots of firetrucks with real loud sirens and black diamond cornhole toss. Fun for everyone!

      You can still receive a DUI If the police believe you were to have been operating the car within 2 hours of consuming or indulging. That’s how they got me in my car, stopped with car off in a parking lot trying to sleep it off, thinking I was making the right choice, But they nailed me to the wall, $7,700 fines, court costs, impound fee, and all the treatment that county of the D.U.I. being received requires, my insurance covered much of the treatment cost but not all and everyone and anyone that gets a D.U.I. has to do the treatment services, Hwy safty class, etc.. ,+ $1,440 house arrest (to stay outta jail so I didn’t loose my job ) as well 1 yr. license suspension and 6 months of probation. an every dime has to be paid for before you can even think about starting, yes I said started, to get your driving privilege back, could have beat it out with a lawyer but at the time I was young an dumb so I didn’t know any better, its amazing what they wont tell you and all the little dirty tricks these counties will pull on you, I will never justify D.U.I…. Way too much proof in the pudding to deny its a major problem!! to many innocent lives lossed at the hands of stupidity , I get that , However I didn’t move my car nor was i gonna, I just wanted to sleep it off. D.U.I. IS NO JOKE

        Hide the keys OUTSIDE of the car, OUT OF REACH from the driver.
        Put them someplace where you have to exit the vehicle to get them.
        Under the hood is fine, just be sure the hood is down & locked in place.
        That alone prevents you from being arrested for a DUI if you are parked.

        So, it’s about how to beat a DUI rather than the fact that this nasty skank decided to get drunk enough to blow a breathalizer test in a parking lot with her three young kids in the car to witness her stupidity? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE? Don’t you realize that these kids are now a bona fide burden on society as wards of the Court and that they will be the next indoctrinated generation of welfare and addictions????

        Shame on the people people who encouraged her to keep the first child, let alone to continue reproducing. She was obviously a teen when she had the first child, and she now looks like a meth head. Good work! Instead of calling people to task to do the right thing and at least PREVENT unwanted children, she decided to have not one, not two, but three kids that are now going to be on the public dole with addiction as a normal behavior. Idiots, all.
