Perhaps this is to fuel local gossip. Report Reply 0 replies · active 258 weeks ago 0 Vote up Vote down southsideresident · 258 weeks ago I for one am interested as he was a neighbor down the road. His mother continues to own property here in Wellington. The family did live here at one time.

And just FYI everyone he did NOT disregard a crossing guard.. The crossing guard was still on the side walk! The two little girls ran out in front of the vehicle… People need to get there facts straight!! Report Reply +4 Vote up Vote down Thirsty · 258 weeks ago I am with Curious on this one. There is no basis for reporting this news other than for local people who know of his existence to gossip about it because that’s all there is to do in Wellington. Sure you are free to report on what you want Cue but is there some reasoning behind this one? One time in the police reports on here i saw theft of a sandwich as one of the lines lol. Surely there’s more interesting things to report on. I am not attacking you I just don’t understand how this impacts anybody in the community.

Secondly, it involves a Wellington person or former resident. We print obits all the time from people who haven’t lived in Wellington for years, but there is a local interest.

Sad, when a dangerous action that inflicts others is happening and others try to cover it up. I guess some people get printed and others don’t. But that’s Wellington.
