Hey McMinn County. Hope you don't have to go through the Circuit Court Clerk's office for anything. Especially, if there are friends or family involved with some of the employees in that office. Talk to people who have been back and forth to court so many times, they can't keep up because the clerk's office is always messing things up. Sit outside in the hallway waiting to be called into court just to be told that something else needed to be filed before they can continue. Actually, it's like a soap opera in the hallway listening to the complaints on trying to get things done through that office. How about filing a police report on someone and it getting expunged before it even made it to court. I know this happened, because I know the person it happened to. The DA's office knew about it and did nothing. Rhonda Cooley knew about it and did nothing. How about an office clerk sitting on the judge's bench and "ordering" the assistant DA what was and wasn't going to happen. Especially, when it was her family member who failed to show up for court, and the case should have been dismissed. Oh, the list goes on and on... and the facts will come out. There needs to be computer techs in that office going through those computers. Rhonda Cooley is so proud that she got an evidence locker cleaned out - WOW... Well Ms. Cooley, how about cleaning HOUSE on the illigle actions going on in your office right in front of your nose. Oh yeah, just mentioned that,,, you alredy know and ALLOW it to happen. The THP can't even offer favoritism to someone they pull over for a ticket, but the clerk's office can. If you can get in good with them, the ticket can be fixed. Hell, even a police report can be fixed. Not once but two or three times. This needs to be stopped now. Because if the courts / clerks are not honest, then the good guys will never win.

O.K we all know this must be her opponent putting this trash on the computer. We are smart enough to know clerks dont have enough power to fix tickets.Only expungements can be done with an order from the court.You make her clerks look bad. Grow up...play fair. Let the people decide on May 4, at the real polls. Chancery court is the only court that has seat in the hallway. If you live in a glass house be careful who might throw stones. Go to the clerks office and check it out for yourself. You will be proud of the office and Ms. Cooley will be there.

You would be very surprised to know the power court clerks have, especially if any are dishonest. I am not an opponent. I do know that information will be published in the paper in the near future about this situation. You just have to remember, that things come back to bite you...

I know some things too that will be coming out...like how the former administration operated especially with the help of a couple of clerks one being Conley. Also we have witnesses that Conley stole passport money and had an affair with a trooper. She was spotted hiding behing a church with him of all places and there are pics to prove it and her ex can tell why their marriage ended. Also she seems to forget the boxes of undone tickets she hid.All the bribes going on and money not handled properly. There are some of us just waiting for the opportunity to offer proof weve held a long time. She may want to think about the seven clerks that are still in the office that worked with her in the last administration. Ask them if they would stay and work for her. They know her character and her rude treatment of the public and her foul mouth.None of them will stay.Shes Norma Whites puppet and she is too spineless to say no. She is pregnant and has a little girl at home..who is she gonna neglect...her family, her job or both. You all can make threats,, that shows what a dirty campaign she is running. Go for it...what goes around comes around.

You may want to get your facts updated about these accusations. Some body already tried to spread these lies and actually the TBI went to check into it and found there was nothing to find. Conley should Run her campaign on what she can do better and quit focusing on lies someone has created. I'm over this trashy website.

I have worked in the area during both administrations and at times I have work closely with the court house staff. My experinve has been much better with the new. They are more organized, moerr equiped and and have a much better attitude and atmosphere. I also work closely with the judges both upstairs and down Ann they are honestly more productive now than wcre before. If you don't not knoww the facts it is really unfair to spread lies. This is very negative behavior and I hope that neither side is making such commernts towards the other based on hear say or what you think you know!

I have had nothing but TROUBLE with that court. I am in insurance and do DL reinstatements to help our insureds. That means I call that office a min of about 4 times a day and that would be if I only need to call about one person. They have these poor people running all over the place back in forth saying they cant find the ticket or if u did pay show us your reciept. It is stupidity. On another note I did not vote for anyone because I saw no one in the running that could do any better. As for the TBI being there I would assume that is how the found the problems that lead to one persons arrest and I'm sure all theses things went on right under someones nose and no one seem to notice. This year I will vote but it will be for the person who runs that I no nothing aobut the underdog lets see if they can make so ajustments and stop making the court house look so bad. Maybe some residents in Athens will follow the law and not end up in that court to begin with. Maybe if they have less to deal with it will be easier. I read all the comments above and went to the court house 9 times to pay tickets and help customers and notice how they discuss fashion and their hair and the weather an thier pens the found an how sweet is that but what about ur jobs???

This website absolutely makes me SICK to my stomach! It is clear as crystal who started this trash about the Circuit Court Clerks Office - Cyndi Conley or one of her two followers, Norma Corn White and Kim Rymer. I have had to use the Clerk's Office many times over the past 20 years and NEVER one time was Norma Corn ever accessible to me. She was rude and so was her staff, that was including Mrs. Conley. She was probably the rudest employee in that office under Mrs. White's reign. Since Mrs. Cooley took over, it is a pleasure to go into that office to do any business I need to do. She is always at work, she is always friendly, kind, helpful and accessible to me. She actually talks to me and tries to help instead of passing everything off on her employees or not getting anyone to help at all, like the office use to be. I think Mrs. Conley thinks she is being cute and getting votes by running an ugly, negative campaign, but it will only come back to bite her in the end. I hope McMinn County knows that if Conley wins, that means Norma Corn White is the Circuit Court Clerk of McMinn County AGAIN. That's all we need! Mrs. Conley will be out on maternity leave and Mrs. White will run that office, along with her THEIF of a neice, Kim Rymer - if you don't believe me - just ask any Constable or any of her ex co-workers and you'll see the character of all the Three Stooges. Mrs. Conley's campaign signs should say "WANT A CON - VOTE CONLEY!" That would be perfect and true. I have ask Mrs. Cooley, after hearing that Mrs. Conley was in the DPA trying to pay to take out ugly, untrue ads against Mrs. Cooley why she doesn't do that same. Why don't Rhonda Cooley tell everyone in the county what a theif, liar, rude, and crazy person Mrs. Conley is and her response was, "If it takes dogging people and running a negative campaign to win, although it may be true, I'd rather not win." I think that says alot about Mrs. Cooley. Thank you Rhonda Cooley for doing a wonderful job and attempting to run again for another term so that McMinn County won't have to worry about our courts or our money as long as you're in office!

I hate these stupid websites that are basically a Sound-Off line via the internet, but I have to say something. McMinn County, please wake up before it's too late and realize our Sheriff, Steve Frisbie, is doing a wonderful job, he is a wonderful Christian man and deserves to stay in office. Joe Guy is only getting so many people behind him because of what the public perceives him as....the nice, wonderful guy that writes books, works for the County Mayor, does the Historical Society, etc., etc. not the man that he truly is. If you vote Joe Guy as the Sheriff of McMinn County, you are voting Stephanie Guy as Sheriff of McMinn County. She will be the one calling all the shots and running the department....we definately don't need that! All the wanna-be cops that couldn't hack it as a real police officer under Frisbie or any other department are the ones behind Guy....does that mean our county is going to be run by a bunch of retards that couldn't hack it the first, second and for some, third times at trying? Does anyone else find it strange that Joe Guy is and has always been (along with his family) a strong Democrat. He only changed parties to be able to work as Assistant to the County Mayor when offered the position. We don't need someone in office who doesn't even know what party he wants to be a part of. He's whatever he needs to be to get what he wants. I don't know why the "Hatch Act" is getting looked over, like it doesn't exist, but the citizens of this county need to fight for something to be done. It is very unprofessional and wrong of John Gentry to allow Joe Guy to run against another public official and be in the job position he is in. Check out the Hatch Act on the web...you will see our County Mayor and Joe Guy is doing something illegal. If Joe Guy gets elected, we will lose all of our good, experienced officers that have worked their butts off to get where they are today so that Joe can hire the members of his "Good 'Ol Boy" club. What is Joe going to do when all his buddies, including his only brother, gets in trouble, caught for DUI and drugs, like they have in the past.....I'll tell you....he will do what he did when he worked for the department, change the reports to other people's names and information so no one would know his friends and family was getting into trouble. Of course he wouldn't want anyone to know they were in trouble for these things b/c HE WAS PARTICIPATING IN IT WITH THEM!! If Joe Guy's wife only knew what he did while they were "engaged" and dating, she would pack her bags and leave today. Joe Guy needs to remember there ARE PICTURES and they just might have to come out. I'll tell you another thing that is amazing to me. He is running for Sheriff, that means you enforce the law, right? Joe Guy's brother-in-law, Jason Powers, got arrested for the solicitation of a minor for sex. He was found guilty and as part of his sentence, he is not allowed to be around any children. That means, NO BALLGAMES, PRACTICES, SCHOOL PROGRAMS....nothing. I find it a little strange that he is at every ballgame and everywhere he is not suppose to be, breaking the law, violating his probation and the man that wants to enforce the laws of our county, along with his other brother-in-law, who is a TN State Trooper, just manges to somehow look over this like it is not even occuring. If it were anybody else, anyone else's family, they would be calling the cops or asking them to leave the premises, but it's okay since it's family. I guess that's how Joe Guy will run our department too......GREAT......just what we need!

I have just read all the above, and Rhonda Cooley is just getting scared about this election, she didnt think anybody would run aganst her, and she is less crediable than anybody, 1st off she has a stepson that was in hiding from the law and she knew where he was all the time, her son in law is the court office and is the rudest most arrogant person around(she dont even like him) and she has a daughter that she should keep her mouth shut about.....this is an election and Ms Cooley dont know nothing of grace, at least Norma White was a good clerk, her neice has nothing to do with it, Rhonda has her relatives working, and payes 2 of them who dont even work in the office. The county needs a new person, Ms Cooley calls herself a christian, she needs to rethink that, alot more can be told....you need to stop it right now....

The last I checked having an affair might be moraly wrong but I think harboring a criminal during christmas is illegal?? The other 7 clerks dont have to worry about working for conley bc they wont have a job anyway. They might wont to get some boxes and get ready to get to packing. I think that if your a criminal cooley would be a good last name to have bc you will not have any consequences to your actions. Rhonda Cooley makes me sick!!!!! She is nothing but a piece of trash trying to act professional. She is a liar and of course she is nice and friendly and accesable its election time.

It's so hilarious when people have no clue what they're talking about and they try to act like they do. It just makes you look as stupid and crazy as everyone already knows you are. This election has nothing to do with Rhonda Cooley's son-in-law. Why does he have to be brought into it? He may be strict, but he is just doing his job and he does it well. Everyone at the CH is protected and it is in order.....ask any Judge and you will see....

It's pretty clear who this is.....anybody who knows the Cooley family should know exactly who this is. She's the only person bored and mad at the world (for whatever reason, I don't know - she brought her own problems on herself) to sit and write this junk about people.

Best of luck to you, Sheriff Frisbie. You are a good man and treat your employees with fairness and love. You deserve another term. Everyone yells about how you need to do more about the "meth problem." Unless the numbers have changed and I don't know it, McMinn County is #1 in the state for meth busts. The Sheriff's Department is doing something about it......there's just too many to ever catch them all!

What does the court officers have to do with Rhonda Cooley's job? She shouldn't have to pay for the way people feel about them or how they do their job. She does not hire the officers. She does not chose the officers. Why punish her for something she cannot control? Shows you how ignorant some people are about politics.....
The people who dislike the cops are the people who are in trouble. They treat you the way you treat them, so, I assume that means you was probably being an ass and deserved him being a "rude, arrogant, prick" to you. People get treated in return the way they are treated by you.
Why don't you visit Rhonda Cooley at her office and make the decision about her for yourself reather than take these idiots comments for the truth. They are crazy, jealous liars! You don't know them either, so how can you decide who you trust until you meet them both and decide for yourself?

Since Mrs. Cooley was "harboring a fugitive," why don't anyone who really wants to know, go to the jail and check their records. He was in custody at Christmas time. How can someone be harbored if they are in jail? You're really not as smart as you think!
