Lip scum

Councilman charged with stalking- al.com

A Lipscomb city councilman is accused of stalking a trailer park manager who wouldn’t allow the Lipscomb police to keep putting up roadblocks at the park.

This is the second time in three years that the Lipscomb PD has been accused of this. Needless to say, I believe it; this town has been at it for a long time.

I like the giant underground storage facilities.
