Apparently, he died from a heart attack while driving. I would like to thank those who have expressed sympathy for the family. The fatality was my Uncle Jimmy, a kind and gentle man. I am also thankful that there were no other critical injuries in this accident.

A lot of people from Manchester travel this road and do get out of Manchester on a regular and frequent basis! Think of it like reading Breaking News from Lacey, but not really living there, Minnie. :-)

It seems almost every week The Patch has the story of yet another serious accident on route 70. It is also sad that the postings evolve to personal attacks. The real issue is then smothered. Fact is people are being killed here!!! Where are the Manchester civic leaders here and when will they do something about this road? When I drive on this route I'm especially careful. I will stay at the speed limit. The Manchester PD should be on this road in an enforcement blitz whenever it hey can. This may slow drivers down.
