A sigh of relief in Shohola

June 26, 2012

“It is our profound hope that the people of Shohola will take note of what has happened in our town and ensure that our public servants are always working in our best interest, not theirs” – Nelia and Don Wall.

Weren’t the Walls public servants who blatantly ignored the best interests of the people of Shohola? Nelia is no longer a supervisor, and the township can finally get down to handling their business without interruption.

The next step is for George Fluhr and Greg Hoeper to review resumes and interview applicants and appoint the person who is the most qualified to fill the open supervisor spot. The integrity that they have always shown in the past insures that the appointment process will be fair and honest.

There was a palpable sigh of relief at the June 14 township meeting when Nelia Wall’s resignation was read. Of course, there were comments from a few of the usual crazies. People who seem to be incapable of being comfortable at a meeting that they can’t disrupt and prolong with their sometimes interminable ramblings.

Hopefully, they too will pass, and our beautiful peaceful Shohola will once again become the vibrant township that we all know it can be.

The Walls

If the Walls were guilty of everything they were accused of, then they would be in prison. The allegations were serious criminal acts. When I heard that the only punishment was a token monetary restitution and resignation, it only showed that the allegations were not substantial enough to be proven in court, an therefore, not of a criminal nature.

I believe that Nelia Wall was forced out of her position because she is not part of the "good old boy" network that seems to be rampant in Shohola Township.

This was a very sad chapter, unfortunately, more abuse of positions are still currently taking place in this township.
