In my opinion we should do what Palm Beach County Fl. Did! The most corrupt county in florida could never get it right either till they started putting all of them under oath and televising All And Every Meeting on public television! That's when things started to turn around for Palm Beach County! Maybe we should consider doing the same! Also each department gets to do d segment showing the public what they do what they need and how they spend the tax dollars that the taxpayers give them! Its a rather good system! And very intertaining! http://www.thepostsearchlight.com/2012/05/18/...

With crooked leadership you get what you deserve for allowing Stafford to serve. Send his ass back to Grady Co. and let him run there.

Frank, I agree with Vote, it is high time you step up and do the right thing as your chairman so eloquently stated. Also, every one of you should ask Stafford to step down, he has disgraced his position and is a total embarrasment to Decatur and Grady Co.

This will not work for Decatur County. You see, we have a Commission Chairman and HIS vice-chairman who love to spend lots of time in secret (executive) sessions away from the eye of the camera and the public.

Grady Co. Charley, you were warned by Honest Abe and didn't listen to his good advice so I'm telling you to step down from chairman and don't offer for re election. By your own actions (lies and cover-ups) you have made yourself damaged merchandise. Get out while the getting is good.

Do not worry Dr Stafford, and do no be dismayed. This matter will become yesterday's news and nothing will happen and you can bo back to holding your beloved gavel with pride and integrity.

Your see, Sir, all you have to do at YOUR county commission is to duck, dive, and hunker down untill the shelling stops, then you can forget it. You do not have to worry one single moment. Nothing will come of this, just like nothing ever comes to those who lie on YOUR staff. You lie for them and they lie for you and the road goes on forever and the party never ends.

You just keep on with that mumbling and grumbleing you do so well. After all, that is what is making Decatur County a better place.

'Do Right" Stafford, man talk about throwing people under the bus. Didn't they teach you better in that leadership class you just completed? The curriculum must have included how to duck, dive, lie, refuse to take blame, and 100 ways to blame others for your mistakes! Bet you graduated summ cun laude. In escence you have called Beverly King, Michelle West, and Brown Moseley liars and accused the other comm. of not doing right. What have you been smoking? You owe all othe above mentioned a public apology.

Attention Decatur and Grady County. We have just received information that will explain everything that has been going on relative to the Chairman of the Board of Decatur County. It has never before been revealed, but the mystery has long been living in the minds of anyone who has ever encountered and had any communication with Charles T Stafford. We all have speculated where he lives. We have all speculated where he came from. We have all speculated what schools he might have attended. We have all speculated what medications he prescribes for others, and what he prescribes for himself. You will now know, for the first time the FACTS surrounding Charlie Stafford. You will read it here, on TOPIX and nowhere else. We have drilled into his past and have hit a gusher!
Long, long ago the Star Ship Enterprise was on a Federation mission to the deep space galaxy known as Alpha 3. Traveling at warp speed the ship approached a nearing planet in the Xnon solar system. Hiding in orbit on the dark side of the planet was the Klingon Battle Ship, Exigent. The ship was commanded by the evil Klingon, Selrahc. Selrahc ordered the ship to attack the Enterprise and in the battle, the Exigent lost power to one of its reactors and had send a landing party on to the planet below. In the landing party was a nephew of Selrahc named Droffats. Droffats was a galactically known translator skilled in the language of Klingon, known as Tlhngan Hol. That is the Klingon word for “Klingonese”.
The landing party encountered a landing party just having been beamed down from the Enterprise. Droffats was rendered disabled by a stun gun and was transported back to the Star Ship Enterprise. He remained unconscious for several hours until Dr.“Bones” revived him by removing some Klingon blood and replacing it with the blood of a captive Alien held in isolation due to being unable to speak in any audible sounds. Droffats awoke and began to speak in his native tongue of Klingonese. Klingons pride themselves for having a language that us not understood by anybody in the entire universe. The words are unheard of, the sounds are so soft one can barely hear them, even with the aid of expensive audio equipment. Droffats became violent and was restrained until his return to Earth, a light-year, or two away.
When the Enterprise became into transporter range of Earth, Droffats was put into the transporter and coordinates were programmed for his descent to the laboratory at Las Alamos area 51. However, the transporter malfunctioned and in one blistering instant Droffats was put back together and he looked around and found himself at the intersection of East River Road and Popular Ave in Bainbridge, Georgia.
Droffats, adopted the name Stafford (Droffats spelled backward) and assumed the identify of a medical doctor and affiliated himself with the local hospital. However, he was cast out from the hospital because Klingons are known as nocturnal and never ever ridding themselves of Klingonese. Furthermore, Klingons are best known for lying and blaming others for their misconduct.
Klingons and Earthlings have been warring for centuries. The only way to successfully get rid of an alien Klingon is to spray them with a concentrated dose of Yelsom. It is tough and it is effective.

Thanks for clearing up where Droffats problems arose Dr. EarlSmithFord. You are a smart cookie with the mind of detective Columbo. Keep up the good work.

Please read the June 30th edition about "Citizens question proposed budget". Terry Ellis District 5 candidate and Ted Snell former District 1 candidate suggest that the board might have to consider a property tax increase!!! Mr. Snell was defeated and I hope Mr. Ellis will also be defeated. The idea that government can solve all our problems is ridiculous. That's the mindset that's destroying the entire country.

Ted Snell also said he didn't mind paying his fair share and knew lots of other peopkle in the county who felt the same way. He thinks us property owners aren't paying enough. Remember the name, he may run for office again.

Actualy, I did NOT advocate raising taxws at the meeting. I only addressed the failure to continue the DFACS funding for the children taken from their homes and providing necesary clothes and a hair cut, if needed, in order for them not to be singled out by their peers. I also, made a plea to the commissioners to me most mindful of the county employees who have not recieved any pay raises going on 5 years. The specific point of view stated was that the commissioners have the money, they just chose, and choose, to use it for other things.

Clearly, I am not a tax increase guy. I believe in curtailing spending and utilize what we have most efficiently. We already pay enough, hopefully I will be given the chance to show you "just how low we can go" when it comes to taxation.

Hoping for a Greater Decatur,
TEE

No, Voter, the paper did not "print a lie." You just misread what was written. The article said that Terry Ellis and Ted Snell both spoke, and that Snell said the commission might have to consider a small property tax increase. It did not say Ellis said that. Exact wording from the paper below:

"Several other citizens also spoke before the board, including District 5 candidate Terry Ellis and Ted Snell, who suggested that the board might have to consider a small property tax increase to meet its budget.

“I’m willing, and I know there are a lot of people in this county, who are willing to pay their fair share,” Snell said."
