    Her daughter was not being bullied her daughter walked around the job lazy with an attutide and when she didnt get her way like a spoiled little brat she had her mom beat up her co worker. and she was the one being a bully beacuse the manager sent her home not the other girl the daughter was the problem thats why her manager sent her home and not the girl who you are calling a crackhead and a bully who did nothing wrong. So she was mad she got sent home and called her mommy like a little spoiled girl.And then is mad at her job for firing her and wanted to know why she got fired and tried to get unemployment. Razor City backwards rednecks that make all us southerns look bad.

    Poochie, it’s not “Tater” City, it’s “Razor” City, just to be correct. That’s why you’re commenting on the Web. Because if you went into that town spouting off at the mouth you’d more than likely find out exactly why it’s called “Razor” City. It takes a very small, weak, cowardly person to write those things. This woman is in crisis and all you can do is throw insults? Does it make you feel bigger to put other people down? I swear, people like you should not be allowed to pro-create. Yeah boy, that’s what this world needs. Another big-mouthed, insecure, coward. Grow up.

  • Guest2u says:

    sshh….Let sleeping dogs lie. if you haven’t heard anything from them evidently they decided to give the tax payers pockets a break from doing petty crimes.

  • Tabor Native says:

    Do you think that you show an level of intellect posting negative comments about the citizens of Tabor City? I grew up in Tabor City. Your insults were directed at an entire town. When you throw out insults at the citizens of Tabor City you aren’t just insulting one person. You know just a little information about this woman. You know nothing about me or the other citizens of Tabor City. And believe me, we are all sick of the R.C.junk. The term “Razor City” came about because people from other places came into our town and picked fights, insulted people, tried to take certain things over, and abused us instead of treating us with kindness. They thought we were weak. They formed an opinion about us before they took the time to know us, like you just did. It’s a fact that if you don’t want to get punched it would be wise not to go around throwing punches. If you throw the first punch or insult us we will do what we have to in order to protect ourselves. But you people have the expectation of being able to say anything you want and we just take it? You can’t be that stupid. I would never say the things about anyone that have been said about this woman without knowing it all to be fact. And I certainly would not insult all of the citizens of a town based on what you think you know about one person. From the brilliance you’ve shown by your comments I am sure that the rest of the citizens where you live would not appreciate being judged by your actions.

  • Tabor Native says:

    You judged the citizens of my home town by the news reporting negative actions of just a few. You don’t know enough about the people that have been in the news to make a comment founded on facts. There is a lot more to those people than what you hear on the news. I know that some of the things that certain individuals have done are wrong. But you don’t know enough about this woman to justify what you said about her. And as for the rest of us that have not been on the news you know nothing about us. You’ve judged an entire town and all of it’s citizens based on the alleged actions of other people. It is insulting. Further, I would never go to where you live, give my opinion about you without knowing you, and heaven help me, I would never go and classify all of the citizens of your town in the same category as you. That would be a sure fire way to get myself on the town’s bad side. It might even get me “razored”.

  • Guest 25 says:

    That is right, she is a person, too. Maybe she just had enough of her daughter being bullied at work. I have seen many of you idiots post on facebook that you would hurt someone over your child. Well, this chick stepped up to the plate. So, all you lily livered (jealous) imps go play in the street during lunch hour. Oh, and for the little Tabor City troll who has no neck (and is married to the Christmas Grench), but does have a typing finger—-If you keep your crap up all your little skeletons are going to fall out of the closet. Ms. Gablehouse does not want your little short but.

  • guesty says:

    It is both Tater and Razor city.

  • Guestwho says:

    I don’t think you understand this but you just backed up poochie’s comment, by sounding like a complete tater. Do you think it’s better to be “razor” city? “We’re not tater’s but we’ll definitely cut you if you say we are”… Maybe a combo of the two is more appropriate. how about….. Tabor, the city of Tater’s with Razors” That has a nice ring to it.

  • taborcitizen says:

    You obviously dont have children and if you do, you obviously dont love them. She was defending her daughter against a bully…the law or her managers would do nothing about it so she did what she had to do.

  • IRECKON says:

    Chamber presidents are people too! Hee hee

  • Poochie says:

    Why oh why oh why hasn’t a film crew descended on Tater City for a documentary on its citizens.

    Some of them are immensely entertaining: R.C. Soles and his boys, and speaking of his boys, they have been awfully quiet lately.

    All Quiet on the Tater City Front.

    But now the quiet has been broken.

    The President of Tater City’s Chamber of Commerce has made a spectacle of herself down in Myrtle Beach. They don’t call Myrtle Beach “the Redneck Riviera” for nothin’.

  • yaj says:

    Miss Connie is a really good women. This lady must have done something really bad to upset her. I have insurance with her she is the most friendly person you can meet very caring she made me feel rite at home.I don’t understand she doesn’t deserve how people are trying to make her look.

  • Guest2020 says:

    No matter how upset she was with the other person involved, she did not have the right to lay her hands on the victim, especially in a violent manner.

  • Guest-o-matic says:

    You seriously need to get back on your meds before you pop a vessel! Oh, and for your information, she was arrested for assault. Arrests are public record. This is a public forum where people discuss news articles that are based on public record.

    We can and will say what we want, when we want, anytime we want. Do the woman a favor and get her a fresh bottle of peroxide!

  • Guest0420 says:

    To all you of idiots who dont know this lady or the situation, maybe you should shut your fat a** mouths. She is beautiful and successful and probably makes more money in a month than you f***tards make all year. She has SOOOOO many supporters its unreal (you’d think she killed Osama or something), shes getting all kinds of free stuff, flowers, messages, phone calls, posts, support coming from everywhere. There are just some people who will talk Sh** no matter what or who the situation and to those people we’d like to say, “Get a life and/or a job and get your fat, lazy, nosey behinds another hobby because you suck at life!” And honestly, shes probably one of the best things that has ever happened to Tabor City and the Chamber of commerce.

  • Guest 038875 says:

    Between you and taborcitizen (probably the same poster but if not, this becomes twice as pertinent):

    Nothing says a person’s an idiot better than an endorsement from an admirer who’s a foul-mouthed , vulgar, hateful, can’t-even-spell-Obama loudmouth with an anger issue. Looks like you’re both cut from the same cloth. No wonder you admire her. If that’s the kind of person she hangs out with, that’s the kind of person she is.

    Your posts do more to make her look bad than if you had said nothing at all. With friends like you, who needs enemies?

  • Tabor Native says:

    Are you insinuating that people from Tabor City are the equivalent of the mountain people portrayed to be ignorant and savage in the movie “Deliverance”? Yes, our town has been in the news for some negative things. But you don’t know this woman or anything about her, and for that matter any of the rest of us. When people are put in difficult situations they sometimes go to drastic measures. And let me tell you, you can say what you want about me. You might be able to get away with hurting me, but you’d better not mess with my kids. I don’t know the details and I don’t agree with arguing, confrontation, or physically assaulting another person. But this woman is not some redneck that picks fights. And if she assaulted someone over her child whatever they did to her daughter must have been pretty bad. We all have our limits. Someone just pushed too far. If you hear banjos playing you aren’t referring to Tabor City. We don’t do banjos or say yeehaw. You people are doing nothing more than kicking people when they are down. Does it make you feel more confident? Superior? You’d better check yourself. You may find yourself in the same position. Down for one reason or another and before you can get up, a group of opinionated, insulting, ignorant group of people, like you and others who have put her and our town down, come along and kick you when you are down. The difference between you and her is that you are a coward. The things you say prove your character is weak and small, and because of that, after being down and kicked you will probably be too weak to get up again. She will get up. She will survive this. Happy with yourself? We all know kicking someone when they are down is a characteristic of weakness and lack of self-esteem. This is a real town with real people. She’s not a joke and neither are the rest of us.

  • guesty says:

    Yes, that is exactly what I’m saying.

  • Tabor Native says:

    She is none of those things. Barrel bellied? WRONG! Just like everything else you posted. I get it, though. You are so perfect. Your physical features and body, you are surrounded by friends, you are successful in every aspect of your life. Nah, if that were true and you were happy with yourself you wouldn’t have any interest in writing assumptions about someone that you don’t even know.

  • taborcitizen says:

    Shes never smoked, only drinks wine, but she will stomp your butt too if you want some….keep talking ;)

  • Guest-o-matic says:

    …barrel bellied, cagarette smokin’, beer drankin’ bimbo ta git inna tussle with! They breed ‘em fine ‘n tuff up yonner in Tabor City!

  • Tabor Native says:

    Where’s your picture? Having fun insulting another human being? We can’t see you. We don’t know who you are and where you are from. But see, here’s the thing. We don’t care who you are or where you are from. You evidently have some kind of curiosity about this woman and our town. Otherwise, she and the rest of Tabor City wouldn’t be worth your time to comment on. We’re not curious about you in the least. The only reason I’ve replied to your demeaning words is because you are insulting. She didn’t insult you and neither did anyone else from Tabor City. You threw those first verbal punches. Mark Twain said “It is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt”. You could have taken the high road, but you decided to form an opinion about a woman and a town you know very little about. She didn’t solicit your opinion and neither did anyone else in Tabor City. You decided to open your mouth, and with the words you used, when nobody asked you what you thought, removed all doubt. You know what you are. And the fact that you’re an idiot could have remained a secret. But you just had to open that big mouth of yours and remove all doubt if what you really are.

  • taborcitizen says:

    Have you looked in a mirror lately guesty? want another porkchop?

  • guesty says:

    I have and yes, I would like another porkchop. Do you have any coleslaw or tatersalad to go with it? I know you have some pimento cheese sandwiches but you can keep them.

  • guesty says:

    If you don’t care, why did you respond to me?

  • Tabor Native says:

    Your negative comments let us know you are the one in a low place.

  • RSimmons says:

    This story should have come with music. BTW was she fighting over a man or the last piece of chicken at Golden Corral?

  • taborcitizen says:

    Her daughter you dumb ****

  • Guestalinky says:

    Gramps 1945,

    Your sarcasm has brightened my Columbus County day. Thanks.

  • Gramps1945 says:

    The crème of Tabor City Café Society.

  • guesty says:

    Are you looking at the same picture I’m looking at? Can’t be.

  • Harry Balsczak says:

    I would marry her in a heartbeat. Good job, good looking, not afraid to assert herself. Wonder if she is single?

  • Tabor Citizen says:

    This is one beautiful woman, check out her facebook page. Shes loved by so many, she just had enough of her daughter being bullied at work in NMB. She snapped on that chick and she got what she deserved. Shes classy, beautiful and very successful, she just broke one little law and a crackheads nose. Quit hiding behind a computer screen dissing her and call Elite One if you have something negative to say. Shes got so many supporters and there are just a handful of dumb a**** that dont know the facts talking crap. DS aka guesty

  • Guestwho says:

    I wonder if the victim was her hair dresser….If so it could have been self defense.

  • Guest154 says:

    That is hilarious!!!!

  • Guest4572 says:

    Oh … now who doesn’t love a cat fight ! Somebody done somebody wrong.. and I’ll bet somebody’s in the doghouse about now. Those two gals will be best friends once they compare notes on his cheating ways.

    And if the lady who took the scratches will give me a call I’ve got some balm for the wounds.

    Bad Kitty
