I grew up in the area of the Turnidges and my family’s farm has been in our family since 1915. I was a Turner Lamp Queen at Cascade High many years ago. I am witness to many bad changes in the attitudes of the populace in this area. The Turnidges are the tip of the iceberg. There are many anti blacks, overboard gun rights, confederate flags and other racial anti American behavior out here in the Turner/Jefferson area that were not so when I was a child living in this area. I bet my blog will be removed because I will remind you that Cascade High had a near Columbine hardly 2 years ago and livestock before that have been shot in the High School’s barn and the Principle is THIRD generation there!! There seems to be a tight control of who and what is welcome and who and what is not welcome. We simply MUST not sweep under the carpet Cascade’s near Columbine or people like the Turnidges. They are the new terrorists and they are your Church members and neighbors. These are people who go to Church and in Jesus name carry guns. I’ve seen it. We have this new generation of anti thinking living next door us now in a new home. This young man tried to get us to leave our family’s farm with threats, floodlights, and false police reports because we were different. We need to understand the Turnidges and realize they are the new terrorists and from what I have experienced, are the tip of the iceberg.
