There’s a bit of controversy swirling around the Public Comment portion of recent Schuylkill County Commissioners meetings.

These forums have become a breeding ground for rants and accusations over the County’s clear cover-up of how it’s spending its CARES Act money and the latest dirt on Commissioner George Halcovage related to his harassment scandal inside the Courthouse.

But if you think this is another “only in Schuylkill County” moment, you’re wrong … very, very wrong.

Davenport Woman Has Divorce Trouble

A Davenport woman says, “I’m not quite sure why I’m here or what I’m doing,” as she tells city officials about the trouble she’s having with divorce proceedings.

She won’t be Davenport’s problem soon though. Apparently, she’s moving to Texas but can’t find a job because the library blocked her password and she doesn’t like Facebook.

Admittedly Dorky Lady Sings About Mayor’s Bike Accident

InfoWars Reporter Goes Off at Austin Council Meeting

Owen Schroyer of InfoWars fame did just that last year when he saw a problem brewing with Tent Cities cropping up all over Austin, Texas.
