Gunfight at Ghost Town In The Sky

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 25, 2007

I went to the re-opening of Ghost Town In The Sky today, and enjoyed myself. I took over 300 pictures, and several videos. I have posted the video of the gunfight here, and will be posting the photos here and on my photoblog as I get around to it.

I will definitely be going back when the Cliff Hnager Roller Coaster opens later this summer, and will have to figure a way to secure my camera and glasses…don’t wanna see them flying down a 1,000 foot cliff!

5 Dead in Crash, Driver Unlicensed and Possibly an Illegal Alien

Posted by Thunder Pig on May 25, 2007

A horrible head-on collision yesterday morning in Mitchell County, North Carolina killed five people.

An S-10, driven by Roberto Sixtos, about 20 yrs old, of Mexico and Marion, NC crossed the centerline and corrected back into his lane, where he struck the Land Rover driven by 58 yr-old Jimmie Dotts, of Mitchell County,, who had swerved into the other lane to avoid the S-10. All five were dead by the time a NC Highway Patrol Trooper arrived five minutes later. [Link to AC-T Photo Gallery]

Sixtos did not have a Drivers License, and it is currently unknown if he were in this country legally or not.

Here are some links to online coverage of this developing story:

The story this morning from AC-T with Topix discussion.

To give you an idea about just a portion of the cost of illegal immigration, over 2,000 Americans are murdered every year by Illegal Aliens, and that tops the number of American soldiers killed in any two years of combat in Iraq.

If we had secured our borders, then Jimmie Dotts might still be teaching classes today at Enka High School.
