It's bad when some of the city worker get a little something extra at Christmas, and the dept. heads have to rely on their usual kickbacks.

It's sad when some of the city workers get a little something extra at Christmas, when the other city workers get NOTHING extra at Christmas.

WHERE WAS THE BLYTHEVILLE COURIER WHEN BARRETT HARRISON, R.L. JONES AND THE INFAMOUS MOSLEYS WRE STEALING THE CITY AND THE WATER COMPANY ALMOST INTO BANKRUPCY? YOU PEOPLE HAVE SAT ON YOUR ASSES AND DID NOTHING FOR YEARS AND NOW YOU FINALLY HAVE A MAYOR AND A WATER COMPANY MANAGER WHO ARE FINALLY MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THE CITY AND HOW IT IS WORKING AND ALL YOU WANT TO DO IS COMPLAIN AND FIND FAULT.
MARK BRASFIELD IS SNEAKING AROUND TRYING TO BE A BIG CITY REPORTER WHILE WORKING FOR A RAG NEWSPAPER. WHO HAS BEEN GIVING HIM HIS INFORMATION? I JUST WONDER WHICH"SNAKE IN THE GRASS" WORKING IN THE MAYOR'S OFFICE IS PASSING INFO TO BRASFIELD, WORD TO THE WISE, MAYOR SANDERS, WATCH YOUR BACK.

If we had Brasfield or someone like him, when the former mayor and city council were in office, chances are that the city would never have gotten into the financial disaster. We need more people like Brasfield to tell us the truth about what is going on with those who take our money and misuse it.
