    Sadly, its only going to get worse! The surrounding area is being infiltrated by a lot of New York and New Jersey people who seem to have no morals or standards of life (not all). The decline started many years ago in reading, moved to Pocono’s, onto Hazelton, then Willamsport and now Wilkes Barre and Scranton! The numbers in crime statistics and places of origin do not lie!

    Can we start a petition for a purge of Chestnuthill Twp to get rid of all these animals? Seems like every other day someone is shot or stabbed there over drugs.
