Meeker Locals: January 15

Ah, the rumor mill, ever in its place in a small town. In the last week we’ve heard, among other things, that a repeat of Black Sunday looms on the horizon, and that the town of Meeker plans to spend $8 million on its expansion of Second Street. Do people make this stuff up just to see who will believe it enough to repeat it?
