I hope the fall victims recover soon and for the TR Patch, people fall all the time. I wonder how much tax money TR PD wasted for this press release what a joke. I must be missing something here, that TR is trying to say. Giving Mastro press I guess?

Seems like it could have been the winds that played a part in those accidents.It was kicking up big time earlier today.
