Good News About The Middlegate Shoe Tree

Recommended Posts

Last night I was in a restaurant in Fallon, NV. Wife and I was looking at a photo of an old mining town on the wall, a fellow in the next booth, a local, said it was Fairview.


We got to talking and I brought the Middlegate Shoe Tree up. He told me that one who did it, came to the Big R in Fallon and bought the biggest chainsaw they had. Police found out and arrested him.

Thanks for the update. I'm glad he was arrested.


I keep trying to figure out why someone would have the time to plan that kind of act, and still think it was a good idea. Apparent he wasn't drunk, or high all that time. And he had the mental capacity to select a saw and complete a purchase transaction without a caretaker to help him. So what does a guy like that think? Was he barefoot?




Keep the Show on the Road!
