    Hey Hey !!!! wait a minute, this community is a great place to live. Let's give the LPD some credit in finding these labs and also reducing crime in this area. Drugs and crime have rapidly taken this nation over!!! Campbell County is THE best place to live in. I'm PROUD to be a Campbell Countian, always have been and always will be!!! The negative things are very few compared to the positive things in our community. Sure we have had our bad moments in the past few years, but please don't let the media drag you down, have pride in yourself and your community. Campbell County Proud!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    To Renee Of Lafollette. For your information the name that was on those collection jars, was Scott King. Its not nice saying that they are meth addict, and that they burnt there own house down. Do you not have anything better to do than talk about people in there time of tragedy. Get your facts straight next time.

    If I'm not mistaken these are two of the same ones that their house burnt about 3 weeks ago and they have collection jars all over the county trying to raise money for these people. Sounds like the were probably making meth and caught the house on fire. Sounds like they are some really intelligent people out there making this junk. If I remember correctly there was a picture on the collection jar with a baby, wonder where it's at when this is going on.

    I WOULD LIKE EVERYONE TO KNOW THAT LAFOLLETTE COULD BE A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE BUT THE DRUGS AND CRIME GIVE US SUCH A NEGATIVE LOOK THAT IT SOMETIMES IS EMBARRASSING TO SAY YOU LIVE THERE. ITS TIME TO CLEAN CAMPBELL COUNTY UP AND GET RID OF THE DRUGS!!!!
