    Please fox 8, you really need to fire your current proofreader and hire an intelligent, grammatically correct one.

    i.e. Her bond is set at $100,00.

      I think that’s the problem… they don’t have a proofreader. They must have fired him/her long ago.

    Andrea. It’s two “women”, not two “woman”. smh. Her bond is set at $100,00. What is that? They were arrested “after deputies say they led officers on a high-speed chase and hitting a patrol car Wednesday.” I’ll let you figure that one out. Ladon Shante, Leath? Why is there a comma in there? And “the vehicle would not stop”? Sounds like they tried to stop it, but the brakes wouldn’t work. lol
