This nomination had to be a joke. Well the joke's on you Alma, GA. You just made yourself look really stupid. The man steals newspapers, coffee, etc from stores and carries them to his "friends" up at the big bank on the street. He has been caught red handed. A common theif citizen of the year....OK only in Alma.

Or a high position but he has a kind heart. I'm sure he will be the first in line to help you.....with or withoutBOTH orrs in the water!!! He's not sleeping with your wife or caught in a hotel with her!!! None of us are perfect......please don't hurt this mans feelings. Remember how blessed you are. Let this happy little man enjoy his moment!!!!
Jerry Carter has access to a lot of money. Land in Duval County and the trust dollars that come with it. He has "keepers" that control that money because he will spend two dollars if he has one dollar in his pocket. He has done well to have such limited capacity, however , "Citizen of the Year" is not the best our county has to offer.

Please give more details about this money and land. Who are his keepers. This might explain a lot.

Eva Johnson is the overseer of his money. The land is off Dunn Ave. and surrounding area in Duval County across from Sam's Club where the Anhieser (excuse the spelling) Busch Beer Distribution Center is located. Jerry has to be given an allowance because he has no real money handling skills, like a small child. Jerry has done well considering his mental capacity. He can function in our small community whereas he would never enjoy such freedom in the large Metro Duval-Jacksonville area.

It is a crying shame that Jerry Carter was given this award. It tarnishes what that type of award is about. The citizen of the year is supposed to be someone that is an outstanding citizen who makes a difference in the world personally and professionally. A doctor or perhaps a farmer or how about an educator? Those kind of people make a difference. Jerry does not qualify on any criteria that I can think of. His being given the award makes it appear to be a joke. So very sad.

I know of one OUTSTANDING person that has served this community for over 45 years that has been snubbed by clubs, organizations, and those that he has taken care of for so very long. I totally agree with Concerned Citizen.

I know who you are talking about and I agree with Just Sayin. He delivered me and my sisters.

Hannah , you are right ! The doctor delivered my baby brother too. Mama says he charged her fifty dollars for all prenatal care, delivery, and baby care up to six months afterwards. Sometimes we did not have money for doctor visits so Daddy would take some firewood to him in lieu of payment. DR. Bagley deserves the highest accolades for his devotion to his patients and the community. They say he still sees patients after 46 years. Has the hospital ever honored the man ? I hope so. Wish I could do more than praise him online. He still sees my Mama as a patient.

You are absolutely right about Dr. Bagley , those were the days my friend, now its all about the money, bless his heart he can barely walk from one room to other , but like Goldwasser he's hanging on. God bless this special man for he can Diagnos when others "just don't know or care" Love to him! maybe one day "Citizen" of the yr.

I agree with you about the choice of citizen of the year. However I did not nominate anyone so I am not going to say much about it the choices only I hope I was not nominated and Jerry carter was chosen ahead of me. Although he has done more for this county than some of you who always run off at the mouth on this forum. If you think someone deserves this award then nominate them. I believe the Lyons Club would appreciate more nominations.
