    Both of my parents are from Johnston County and there are some wonderful people there but I agree that every time they are in the news it seems like it's about a meth bust or something meth related. They need to clean the county up!

    What does a meth fire in Johnston County usually have in common with a Tornado in Arkansas?

    Someone's gonna lose them a trailer.

    People are trying to be chemist and it is just not working. If you play with fire you will be burned. Hope this taught him a lesson and get his life straight. He needs to be thanking God his life was not taken.

    I have lived in Johnston County all my life. Not too proud of the fact that we have so many meth labs here but am so very proud that NCSUweathergirl does not live here.
