    “Belfast Middle School”?

    That would be Troy A. Howard Middle School.

      really??? u are gonna complain about a name of a school? Not the death of a very nice lady?

    • The Great White Hope

      A lady lost her life and you’re worried about the school name? You certainly are one pathetic individual with some obvious self esteem problems based on your posting history.

    My condolences to Allen and his family.

    I know I commented earlier, but I just find it so surreal. I have known Ruth my entire life, she was my teacher in ’97 and our families have always been very close. It’s just hard to believe this happened.

    Just the headline made my heart catch in my throat….now I truly understand that expression. What a tragedy for this entire community.

    Wow…Really, on something so tragic you are going to comment with “this was obviously an accident caused by speed and reckless driving” when clearly in the article it says “The trooper reported that Holmes lost control of the truck on the ice-covered road.” .

    If it was anything to do with speed and reckless driving, they would have said it.

    I don’t agree that it was anything that could have been controlled, roads get icy, especially with the weather we have been having, anything is possible.

    My thoughts are with the family to Mrs. Holmes.

  • The Great White Hope

    Or ice like it says in the article.

  • The Great White Hope

    Not real witty are you? This is as poor of attempt at humor that I’ve seen in sometime and I’m a sick individual.

  • This is kick in the gut, heartbreaking news. A mighty blow to a beautiful family. Linda B.H. is walking with her friend again………
