Your Turn: Your Feedback On Stemples & Gifts


It has been six months since Richard Stemples was involved in a school bus accident that left him facing a traffic violation and fired from his job. He's threatening a hunger strike now that Christmas is over in order to get his day in court:


This person wants and needs his job. I think he deserves a speedy solution to his problem.

Gregory Maurer

A hunger strike when people are starving and food pantries are struggling is laughable. It's understandable that desperate times call for desperate measures, but please do not insult those that are already going without.

If he is so concerned about his court date, he would start his hunger strike right now, not wait until after Christmas. What, is he afraid he will miss out on all of the good food?

There certainly seems to be a statutory speedy trial violation, and considering the effect on the gentleman's life, possibly a constitutional speedy trial violation!

Richard Manning

An outpouring of community support made a present-filled Christmas possible for people with mental illness who are served by Mercy Behavioral Health:


As a person with mental kind to people that need help because YOU may need help yourself someday.

GREAT story! This is what the true meaning of Christmas is all about!
