        May 22, 2024 at 2:51 pm is full of public records on anyone why has got a SPEEDING TICKET! LMAO This proves nothing. Where’s the arrest? Where’s her mugshot? She’s a federal government employee. This would be all over the REAL news not a little disclosure wannabe of WRUL. They need to follow up with their stories or know the facts before stating them. We have the housing surrounded by cops constantly, anyone ever arrested? NO LMAO That means nothing. “Cops” in Gallatin County are a joke as you are and as WRUL being a “reliable source” of facts and truth. Reveal your name. Stop hiding “Ridgway local” LMAO KEYBOARD WARRIORS!!
