Anybody now the dollar figure it would take a individual to make a STRONG run at the Office of Sheriff?

Legal money of course

Or if we don't all stand up and DEMAND justice we can just accept the fact that Towns is beautiful to look at but rotten to the core.
We need to get a Sheriff that WILL do the job with HONOR, but more than that, we need to rise up and save ourselves (so to speak) because no one man can save us all.(Excluding Jesus...then again we better not..that's what got us here!) Whoever it is will need our support and PRAYERS to even stand a chance!
That should start with everyone (!!!!!) that wants this mess cleaned up getting together and demanding an honest investigation and a complete overhaul of our local government!
I can tell from reading this stuff as well as the rumors that you all KNOW what is going on. Believe me, most of it is true. I'm pretty tired of the people who keep playing the disinformation game...preachr!
Jimmy Wright and Chris Clinton sound like viable candidates to me, but Don Lloyd?! Why not just ask Scotty Fain who he wants for Governor while your at it. Same for Gary Hicks, in my opinion of course, which by the way, is based on first hand experience.
I'm reading all of these forums so I think I'll post this in all. I'm sick of it!! Where were the folks who want justice when Jason Arrowood, Todd Helcher, Chris Clinton, Phillip Wood, Neil Dover, J.B. Stovall, Brian Peppers, etc. etc. etc. were replaced with folks that would go along with whatever they were told (right or wrong) just to gain the favor of Eddie Osborn and Rudy Eller?! Regardless of what you may think of any of these officers I think one thing remains constant--they wouldn't sell their souls to fit in!
They all did their jobs for YOU!!!! And don't talk to me about how cops sign on for it so no big deal when one dies "doing his duty." Having been friends with one for many years let me tell you this, no one hates dirty cops like honest cops!
STAND UP PEOPLE!!!! Wake up!!!! Everyone of you should call you senators, congressmen, state reps., Governor, the FBI, US Attorney, Bill O'Reilly, Rush Limbaugh and...Glen Eller...just for kicks...!
It's just not that hard. You know who the crooks are and who the good guys are so take a stand...NOW!!! before it fades back into the same dull hum it's been for years!
I applaud some of you I've read, Old Timer, Hindu, Life Long Towns res., to name just a few who have taken a stand! Shame on those who have played the disinformation game!!!!!
Lets stand together before they take it all back. I Don't care if Donna Hedden was selling fake whatevers. The Sheriff's Office is doing drive by shootings!
Here are some thoughts for you....
Why/How does Scotty Fain have soooooo much money? Can you really get that laying rock or are the rumors true? Why do his partners? Fernando (ex-cop busted for dope now has millions); Joe Milo (ex...well, construction worker or something turned bank owner...also with millions). Why does Fain always turn up in every thing dirty? Why did his brother die in a drive-by shooting?(Anyone remember that?)
Why did Osborn feel confident telling Eller to hide the gun? First time they did something like this?Hardly!!
Why did Jess Gibson "commit suicide" at such a convenient time?
Why did Bob Kern handle the investigation?(BOB KERN!!!)
Let's take this town back now! If we don't we will never get it back!
You are right!!!! It's now or forever hold your peace. I cannot believe the outrage over the fake purses while turning a blind eye to the infestation of hard core, criminal activity. Where is channel 2 when we need them?

Has anyone made any calls yet? Just curious....

As for a dollar amount, gottagetout, it wouldn't come cheap. You would need a campaign manager who is dedicated to the job (not your brother-in-law whose out of work at the moment) and a staff. In other times, these wouldn't be necessary in TC, but knowing the opposition and, as The Rooster put it, the disinformation campaign that would be waged against you, it's going to take a solid staff. I've offered my help to whomever we can decide on in here, if they are interested in it. I do have a few credentials in this area, though I won't share them here. No sense in outing myself any more than I already have.:-)

People keep saying negative things about Don Lloyd, would someone tell me background information, NOT rumour of why he wouldnt make a good sheriff, it looks like he left the sherrifs office, that in itself seems to be a good thing?!

There is some information on him and his current or past employer on another board. Seems he was dipping his wick is several lamps. I never see him do anything but ride around with another guy. Someone posted he runs the amusment park in Hiwassee now. There was also something posted last week about him getting trouble when he was a car salesman.
Doesn't sound like the person we need.

made several very interesting calls....the "BIG DOGS" are being turned loose...that's all i can say without involving some of you. THEY are aware of more than what is on these post....from one end of the county to the other, barn fires included....seems one of our friends "burnt some bridges" in rabun county as well. IRS is very interested!
I hope TC has a big fire department...may be burning more than barns! be safe old timer....i hope we can talk soon...and I'm old enough to have had the pleasure of watching Snot get his locker cleaned. Wasn't the fir4st time...but can't go there yet!

So redhead, is it your belief that anyone, in this case jimbo, who may have some issue or with police, he or she does not deserve the service of a cop if and when he or she may need one? Further, in the event that jimbo may need the service of the police, well, too bad; a cop should not go about their duty in a quick and expedient manner? Is that what you are saying?
Tis' a rather narrow viewpoint.
For instance, I do not like the fact that some airline pilots have a few drinks prior to flying. I take issue with that and have voiced complaint. So, following your logic, I should just refrain from flying altogether. Right?
Additionally, I take issue with plastic surgeons giving breast implants to 16 year old girls. For arguments sake, let's say I am on a flight with a drunk pilot and he skids off the runway; although my seatbelt is securely fastened, my seatback is in it's full and upright position, and my tray table is locked away, I break my nose and need reconstructive surgery. Is it TOO BAD for me since I've complained about the practices of some plastic surgeons.
Seriously, is that what you are saying?
What I was saying is that jimbo shouldn't say "most cops". There is no question that some cops think they are above the law. There are some in every profession who think they are above the law. I also suggested that perhaps cops should drive more slowly. Apparently, jimbo thinks they run people over for no reason. If they drove more slowly perhaps the public would hold a higher opinion of law enforcement. Then again, probably not. Some people think the police should only drive fast when they are responding to their needs. Often those are the same people who think the police should be out catching the real criminals, instead of writing them that speeding ticket.

For one, he is employed by the current SO. He is big buddies with Wayne Garrett, who is another crooked elected official, and is a 100% Kendall man. Rumor is Garrett is going to appoint him as acting Sheriff until the election. He is also in charge of security at Funworld, used to be in charge of it at the Yahct Club when Phelm owned it, and then when Fain bought and operated it until other management took over. He is also a rude know it all, smarta**. Have seen him very rude to elderly folks more than once, and you can't tell him anything even if you are 100% sure you know what you're talking about (you saw it happen and he didn't) he will still argue with you, will never admit he doesn't know or is wrong about anything.

On second thought I actually studied libel law in graduate school. Whoever wrote it probably didn't but rattled off a roster of LE like an insider. Its kind of creepy.

... the last four sheriffs: Eller was a deputy in the 1970's for a couple of years. Don't think that counts much; Roach, no prior L.E; Jack McKay, don't think so. Who before that? Jack Barnard, nope, sorry. Yeah, I think it's time for a professional L.E. that's proven not to be corrupt.
Question: Who were the deputies under Jack McKay?

Re-Rooster, isn't it? I have noticed a few others on here who have take offs of my name as well. That's cool. I hope that you have noticed what we are doing (from the longest forum), re: the private message board. You are one of the people I'd like to make sure is there. Are you game?

If there was a story they would be here. My parents have worked in the biz nationally and would eat this up. The reason none of these networks are not interested is because it is all congesture.
The witch hunt should stop here.

When you said that your parents would eat this up, you meant they would love to report it or they would tear through the rumors? If it is tear throught the rumors...tell them to jump in b/c that is what we are trying to do as well. I agree witch hunts are uneventful, but here we have corrupt law enforcement officials that's no secret, what everyone is trying to find out is how deep they are in and what other events are they responsible for. We are attempting to open people up to talk without intimidation. A witch hunt is totally different, my wife has been to one and they're no fun.

Let me add a rumor. I have been told, so this is not first hand knowledge, that there seems to be a little too much law enforcement traffic at the fruit and veg. stand near the auto parts sore in town. Any takers?
