Wow I did not know he was a JW. But being a apostate cuts off all ties with Burney area. I have been in and out of the Shell station when I would go on service calls to repair trucks east of Burney. Repaired several in the parking area of the Shell station through the years.
The area has changed from a working mans town ever since the spotted owl shut down the logging. The whole Northern Calif has changed from being lumber communities to pot growing. Sad. When I first read about the attack this mornings paper it was very depressing as to the inhumanity that has made its way to a small community, now to learn he was a JW makes it all that much more saddening.
Burney/Johnson Park has two Kingdom Halls the old one [I gave public talks there] right next to a new one, I guess the got bit by the drive to build newer hall and could never unload the old one. They set side by side, the old one deserted.
