Ritchie County in thirty minutes, maybe, Nicholas not so likely. Better watch putting all your eggs in one basket, so to speak. To paraphrase Scott Adams, creator of Dilbert. "There is no problem too big that the right amount of high explosives cannot solve."

I'm interested to know how we got a dozen cruisers to Nicholas County within 30 minutes.

My Gosh!!! Were getting ready for war right here in the valley. All levels of our government are like children with their Christmas list and a ready supply of legislative folks willing to comply. Start cutting your budget like the average local citizen has had to do. Any shoulder fired rockets available that you need?

There are many streets with similar names in Wood County. Woodland, Lynwood, Greenmont, Highland, Packard, Rosemar (Road, Meadows, Circle, Terrace) and many more.

I would hope the SWAT team and 911 dispatch double checks the proper address before deploying their new toys. Mistakes have happened in other areas. I was visited by a couple of local law enforcement recently. They had my street confused with a similar name. Oops. Wrong street. Glad they weren't the SWAT team.
