  • More than half of this information is wrong it is disappointing to hear you all write of a man you didn’t know and do not know enough accurate information that you fill it with lies so others know what is going on, just for there own peace of mind. I am ashamed that I have read your paper and have it delivered to me, at the end of the day I believe none of it. “Jim Longo Jr” true friends and family know what happened. Shame on you.
