She’s not guilty....
That’s the ABC affiliate.
Check back with her after a few years of coke abuse.
She’ll be on the Jello-wrestling circuit soon.
She doesn’t look guilty at all.
All kidding aside Meth makes people go crazy. They have no grasp on reality. I know two local attorneys who threw away promising legal careers to chase meth.
There was one here, too, that did his career in......
Toni Miles joined the WLOX News Team in December of 2001. She is now a WLOX News Weekend co-anchor with Krystal Allan. Toni still reports and shoots, and enjoys her time out “in-the-field.”
Toni worked as a reporter at two other South Mississippi TV News stations before she began her career at WLOX. She also worked as the Public Relations Director for the Salvation Army in Gulfport.
Toni graduated magna cum laude from the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, where she was named the school’s 1999 Outstanding Broadcast Journalism Student. She also captured the First Place award for Spot News Reporting in the 1998 Southeastern Journalism Competition in Mobile, Ala.
After graduating from Southern, Toni worked as an intern on Capitol Hill for Senator Trent Lott. But the Magnolia State beckoned her back from the Beltway.
Toni considers herself blessed because she has the opportunity to get paid for what she loves to do, and has the chance to learn something new everyday. She also enjoys learning about, and telling, the stories of the unique people who live on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
Toni loves to write, and uses her gift for creativity for many projects outside of work.
Toni is a competitive runner, which often comes in handy when covering a spot news story.
She has a blind Boston Terrier named Buster, who conned her into adopting him by licking her while she was holding him for a Pet of the Week video at WLOX.
well... that’s a better life than being a lawyer!
I have zero respect for cokeheads or methheads. She is guilty as hell.
"oh, I was working on a story."
Is there a course in jourwhoralism school in drug abuse? There certainly seem to be any number of drug-addled reporters and editors out there!
No doubt, she does.
A multi-agency raid?
For three grams of coke and five grams of Meth?
I certainly hope they expected to find more than that.
I can go out any day and find multiple people holding much more than that.
Good looks plus a taste for drugs means a future in porn.
But not enough to outrun The Man. Heh, heh.
Shoot and report local news
WLOX-TV, Biloxi, MS, ABC affiliate has an immediate opening for a full-time Reporter/Photographer. Candidate must possess the ability to anchor live newscasts, shoot, edit, and write news stories. The applicant must have excellent knowledge of how to create stories using visual and written skills. Also must be able to work independently and under deadline pressures.
I’d give her probation, and release her into 24 custody (mine of course)
Back in about ‘85 I was on the Gulf Coast as Sheriff Hobbs was busted for serious dealer quantities. That gave Police Chief (and Pubbie) Larkin Smith the in for Sheriff. Smith later was elected to Congress and killed in a small plane crash during a storm.
Hey you're talking about our 42nd President [Kinton] and possibly our 44th [Hussein]
My younger sister works for a Judge in S. MS handling the Drug Court. She directs the program that keeps up with folks who are given the chance to avoid prison by getting their lives back on course. She is appalled at the effects of Meth on so many, and how it hooks them so quickly.
In the ideal world, this would not be a crime.
Its way past time to re-legalize all drugs.
In the ideal world, people wouldn’t use drugs.
I’m gonna do ah lil name droppn here too...
He was tha owner of Love Communications and a good man...but I’ll return to that...
Growing up on tha coast back in tha 70’s and when coke was as popular as Crown and Coke with tha upper crust of society,,,as I’m sure it is today,,,Hey all that is still crossing tha borders according ta ya’lls reports is not being solely supported by street and middle<>low income people,,,ya’ll got tha laws and drug testing of us to tight,,,when it got out of hand thar was re-hab and support from locals and alike...
But now Love communications is owned by ah conglomerate and I don’t blame Mr Love for profiting and selling to Raycom Media...
But I know from tha past that Mr. Love would report tha facts properly and he would not fire yet get her re-habilitated and her job would be there...
Now course she would have to return at entry level reporting to gain back public confidence...
But is Raycom going to treat her like ah statistic and is her downfall because of the works inline with the book, “How to Climb Tha Corporate Ladder thru Intimidation”, because thar is a newly anchor person that has nowhere near her seniority thar and afew new interns???
What’d be nice is if someone taken on even as a documentary her effects to get bac what she has lost...
My personal comments are;
For those uppercrust and alike today such as those from Abbey Hoffman and those that fought and now live as those they fought...”The General Epistle of James”, Chapter Five will apply to ya’ll...
And for those that can do that don’t...
And for those that need real food for this so as to apply to tha next;
“Corinthians” Chapter 13 - Verse 13;
New testament states - And Now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity..
Good News states - Meanwhile these three remain: faith, hope, and love; the greatest of these is love.
And for those that can not seem ta ever know what love means or defined as:
L - Liftup O - one’s V - virtue E - everyday
I have known Mr. Love to follow and to do that...Funny how his name applies to his belief...
Okie Dokie Bill...
Quit using cream and sugar in your coffee...
Quit drinking coffee....
As a matter of fact - quit drinking H2O altogether...
My point is that thar is always an answer...
Live extremely and one surely will die extremely...
All chemicals and deemed drugs has thar useage in this world...
Problem is that the government deems to regulate so as not to be liable for the consequences and being sued...
Just as the mess we are in with the economy - The Government needs to become Liable for itself or back out and allow the free market system run itself...
The best is to let the free market system and people as the majority and cosumer run it and remove all that is corporate and lazy...
Or what I call “We Tha People”
Having been born and raised on the Coast I saw more drugs during that time do some real good people in, along with some not so good. The Ex Hubby used to work for a company which was owned by a large “Irish” family. Anyway, the son who is now I guess about 40ish was a huge coke head in his day. I am surprised he and the company are still around. The entire family from top to bottom was either a drunk, coke or meth addict somewhere along the lines. I swear they fancied themselves after the Kennedy's! Trouble was they had more money then sense. Plenty of income to throw around on stuff going up their noses or down their throat. So glad old Ex got out of there before he was brought down by them.
I don’t know Toni Miles, except for seeing her on the news, but I am not gonna call her a drug addict, just because she was arrested at the house where drugs were found, does not mean she was or wasn’t using them.
People get bad names from other people assuming the worst in everyone.
WLOX may have been looking for any reason to fire her. AN arrest is NOT a good reason, a CONVICTION would be a good reason, but if I’m not mistaken she was NOT CONVICTED yet!! Give her a break, I don’t think we need to punish her too, she’s got enough on her plate right now.
Welcome to FRee Republic.
Toni is my local anchor. Nuff said.
Welcome to FRee Republic.
Do you suppose that is why so many of them are so obviously in the tank for Bozo and other liberals? The editors threaten to cut off their supply of meth? Wouldn't surprise me if most of the brain dead reporters got that way due to heavy drug use.
That thought had crossed my mind!
