    You will be seeing much more of these types of accidents in the years to come………..very, very high costs and not just monetary ones………..

  2. I must say to Judith above I myself as we’ll as I am sure as the rest of the community would like to be able to view the Gardner news and not see negative comments. I am finally speaking out due to the story above. Judith you do not know the circumstances of the accident, and I feel it was very disrespectful to the victim and the family for you to make that comment. To the family I am sorry for your loss, and hope there is no other negativity. And to Judith get a life and let the rest of us view the news without your negative input.

  3. Judith Rogers says:

    And “nw”, perhaps in the future you could not be cowardly and take ownership of your comments. You and many others have no problem in making “negative” statements with respect to myself and see yourselves as saints rather than the backstabbers that you are………what a joke.

    I was speaking the truth and many don’t like to face the truth but I certainly was not being disrespectful to the Crist family or to any other family who will be facing losses like this in the future. I have true empathy for them but people like you, “nw”, are always so eager to paint me as the bad gal since my opinions are different than yours and also I seem to be one who speaks their mind when it is needed. Much unlike those who go along to get along or are just plain morally corrupt and have no problem whatsoever with all of the wrongdoing that is so prevalent in our society these days.

    All those gun nuts squeal about their 2nd Amendment rights – well, I believe my rights are still there under the 1st Amendment whether you like it or not.
