  1. 17 years been there so where is the h coming from…big brother..legalize it..and let the chips fall where they may…what else can be done. Conspiracy theory or truth….???So quit blaming the for thought..

    • Mike Alvin. Are you kidding me. Legalize heroin? Do you have a brain? I was born and raised in Jamestown. Used to be a nice place to live. Safe, prosperous, jobs everywhere. Now it’s completely different. Wood and Metal Industry jobs are gone, no future there anymore. The kids need to have something to do and get educated. Having a heroin epidemic in Jamestown is really sad. Kids…wake up and get educated, and move…there are better places to live. Sad.
