Should have worked harder to save your school. Skatepark didn't cost the town of Appalachia one dime. Kids have free will, it's the parents that are number one in providing a foundation to help keep their kids from doing drugs, then the communities responcibility to build on that. Stop your complaining. Use that hot air your blowing to help that town instead of bitching.
On and On

If it is the parents job providing the foundations to keep their kids from doing drugs why is it the tax payers job to keep on providing activities for these kids to keep places for them to go. I hear on the grapevine that we are trying to come up with Funds to provide Picnic Tables and Tent sites near the area that they have their Fishing Derby and the Walk Bridge site at. Keep on Blowing our Tax Dollars yes I mean Tax Dollars who do you think pays for these so call Grants you are getting us Tax Paying individuals. If we are such a dilema with funds quit using money that we can not afford to invest in such "Waste", it should be the Parents providing leadership and amusement and child care to their children not us Tax Paying Citizens. Our Management should provide Protection, Water, Sewer and anything else that is reasonable to our Town not Providing Child Care that is what Kids Central is there for. We are such doing such wasteful thing with our money when we can not afford the things that we need to be investing in. I can understand why they closed our School to save money but for the life of me I can not understand our Poor Management of Money in our Small Community. Get a Grip on what we should be investing in our Citizens that mean the most to us our Taxpayers because without them who you gonna call "GHOST BUSTERS"
because that is what we are going to be a GHOST TOWN. I have raised five children without the help of the Town Entertainment Center and all of my Children are thriving Adults with small ones of their own so you see it can be done. Keep in mind we put you in office and we can take you out of office, but that seems to be already on the backburner of the stove since we will be County before long if things keep progressing as it seems to be doing. It is a plan in the works it seems and we seem to be letting it happen. I look at it like this if we are no longer a Town then I guess my Tax Dollars that I pay to the Town will no longer happen and then I will not have to worry about the wasteful spending of our Town finances.
hold on

Isn't it funny how things can turn in the Blink of an Eye. How can it just be rumors when everyone is talking and to lighten the load on the Budget Committee's shoulder they finally come out with the Truth. If you don't want things getting out keep Your Trap Shut. I can not beleive anything coming from those in Charge, they do not know where the Truth comes from. They tell so many lies that they beleive in themselves. I for one do beleive our Days are Numbered as a Town. To save money just get rid of the Manager and Clerk and let The Mayor and his Group run it. To save Money get rid of the Salaried cause it Reflects on some of their Vehicles that they are not Working, expecially when they aren't cleaned off on Working Days or seen in places outside of their corporation limits during house of pleasure or their time off hours. Open your eyes and see to it that the ones we are paying do their job and WORK. It amazes me that us Tax Paying Citizens sees more happening in our Town than the ones we are Paying to do that job. Evidently they are Blind, Deaf and see nothing or hear nothing, just repeat and get citizens in an uproar. I for one wish you would put some Employees, Citizens and Hard Working Individuals on the Budget Committee and maybe something better could come out of all these Dirty Dealings that just seem to Surface every Budget Time. If those in charge of taking care of our Business would do their job then those of us that think bad about our town would have nothing to complain about. Do your job and us Tax Paying Citizens would not have to reflect to a sight to keep others informed.

So word on the street is the Town Manager of Appalachia is going to get rid of the police department. I mean yes, I believe a few should be replaced, but ain't the citizens paying taxes to have cops in that town. From what's being said, the good ole manager is supposedly retiring in July, and around that same time he is gonna end the Police Department and bring in the County Cops to work the town!!! If you get rid of ones that take their cruisers to their girlfriends or drive their kids around (I see a certain silver Impala in BSG DAILY, with kids in his cop car), or heck how bout we get rid of them ones that are NEVER THERE (including the town manager). I'm sure the town will have money then. Also hear ole Gibson will have a guaranteed job there since he's dating the Town Managers daughter now, even hear they plan on getting married. Guess Fred wants this town completely destroyed don't he? Oh well, no matter what people say in that town, the town manager get's away with anything and everything. The council will realize how bad it gets when they need a cop, and it takes a deputy 40 minutes to get to em, but oh well right? IT'S ALL ABOUT MONEY!
town manager got a lot of secrets he wants to keep

Rumors, like we were going to loose our Schools, just rumors we were told, but we lost it. Rumors our kids were going to be transferred to Big Stone, just rumors. Rumors are not rumors when you have a Councilman telling it, when you have a Chief telling it, when you have Deputies comfirming they are in negoiations. I would tend to think something "Dirty in the Works", but just rumors. I would think whoever is in charge would take a stand and up and let everyone know the truth. I could run the town better than some that are in charge. I could save the Town Money which I do not think some are trying to do, I think they are there to break the bank as we call it.
I am just worried that one day the Town of Appalachia is going to be in trouble for things they are doing. I think their insurance would frown on their employees taking their children to school and all about in the government vehicles. Even the one who is in charge has his children in the Town's vehicle and tends to ride one of them in the front seat which is very dangerous. All children should be seatbelted in the back seat of a vehicle and needs to be in a booster or car seat until they are of certain height, weight and age. Our taxes should not provide a way to school for these children, that is what school buses are for. Get your priorities together, you wonder why so many are complaining then change the ways you are running our Town. The town vehicles should only be used for Town Service not a means to try and save you money by letting us fork out our money to pay for your transportation whether is be for pleasure or transporting your young ones to their school or outdoor activities or going to County events not involving the town. Even using them for personal use should be prohibited, we should not be paying out of our pockets to provide you with a ride. If you do not want people talking quit giving them reasons to talk about it. Common sense is if you are driving a Government car with Government tags and you are seen hauling family around then you tend to be noticed. Not every town has a Green Exterra or the Gray - Bronze- Silver Impala's. Use the sense God gave you and make Smart Decisions to keep from getting talked about. I am just saying if you want to be talked about keep doing these things, if you like being talked about keep doing these things, if you want to smash the talk then change what you are doing.
Still seeing some of the vehicles, heard it on the grapevine that the Town's Mechanic drives his Impala home because he does not have his own car, seeing it everywhere even on weekends. See the Green Xterra also and of course still hauling those children around, I just hope they have their seat belts on or are in a booster seat. People tend to look when they see government tags or the Town Of Appalachia, or Public Works, just common sense, would not be so noticeable if they had regular tags. Also seeing the Big Red Public Works Truck with a Blonde driving it and hauling her kids to and from school and now taking them to work with her, waste, waste, waste, why don't we just open up a DAYCARE. I am just wondering if they are checking employee's driving records also, or if they have a valid drivers license, just a thought. Park all town vehicle, if you have a job and are getting paid then you should be able to get your own way to work, just saying if we are going to raise taxes then make cuts in other areas if we are in such bad shape. Run the town as you would run your own household when you are having trouble with finances, you know when you get laid off the first thing to go is things that are un-necessary, like entertainment, just saying needs first wants last.
