Charges against Walls withdrawn; Nelia resigns as supervisor; Wall's statement

All of the charges against Donald and Nelia Wall have been withdrawn. The outcome came following a year and a half grand jury investigation of charges brought by Shohola resident/attorney Mark Hamill and other residents of Shohola Township.

More tension in Shohola; family of supervisor feels threatened

It isn’t over yet in Shohola. For the last two years, tensions between two of the Shohola supervisors and a contingent of citizens who support Don and Nelia Wall flashed and sparked at every monthly township meeting.

Chairman of the Shohola Township Supervisors George Fluhr and supervisor Greg Hoeper fired Don Wall as the township zoning officer, and Nelia Wall as the township secretary/treasurer, in March 2010.

“It’s time for a change,” Fluhr said as the explanation, being gagged due to a grand jury investigation that was being conducted at that time.  Read more
