    …because if we could’ve gotten him and Jason Thompson from the New Hanover County Commission together in the same room, we coulda had the bout of the century! One would’ve had to walk away sporting “depends” under their shawts though…

    I cannot for the life of me understand why my personal life is of interest to WWAY. I am trying to get on with my life, but I can’t when everytime I turn on the TV, I see my picture along with all the gory details of of an alleged incident. Why not wait until a verdict is rendered before you skewer me again. I continue to try and represent the citizens of Leland in an honorable manner, and your news won’t allow me to do this. I am suffering enough without you piling on.

    Herbert Barnes
