It seems to me that Earp has not been present at the last candidate forum and rumor is he has been on vacation. So he decides to go on vacation during a campaign I am glad I didn't contribute to his so called campaign fund or "vacation fund".
And you areacting like a dumbass with your comments. He has a right to go on vacation just like anyone else. And who's to say he is on vacation. you are just trying to stir up shit...you are probably that idiot Jack!!!!

Who gives a crap if he took a vacation. It shows me that his priorities are where they should be. Let me explain that to you since you have such a small brain. God then family then everything else follows. If he needed some time with is family then hats off to him. So if you want to put down someone because they thought they needed a vacation with their family then maybe you should spend more time with your family and business then putting your narrow mind and thoughts in someone elses.

What a Joke! This county has been a bunch of crooked, judgmental, small town drama queens. I have lived in this county over 30 years. In this short time, I have seen more than my share of Jerry Springer material. Seriously folks, if you believe your in for anything different, your fools. What this county REALLY needs is a changing of ALL the guards. Start at the top. We don't hav a lot to brag about people. We have had a child porn addict for Sheriff, Then we got a Rapist, We don't have enough sense to fire those who steal within our own banks. We have the State record for taking children from their parents by this joke of an organization called CPS, which honestly I think is nothing more than a bunch of fat ass people who should never be allowed to reproduce. Hell! No wonder Meth and other drugs are such an "issue". The "issue" is that the state of this county and the actions of most of the citizens here would drive a Nun to I.V. Drug use. This county a a whole is a joke, an embarrassment, and the perfect example of rural greed, ignorance, and corruption. Call me when the revolution starts. Until then I am going to find a way out of here, and I am ashamed to say this is where I am from.

Finally someone who shares my opinion!!! You nailed it "sickntired" !!!! I myself have lived in this horribly depressing town for over 30 years and would love to get out. Our aging parents keep us here. I pray everyday that we will eventually get out. There is nothing to offer here for our younger generation. Just look around at how nasty and depressing Bowie is. Take a drive to other communities such as Muenster or Lindsey and you will see how clean they are. They don't have the white trash nasty houses and people that Bowie does! Maybe it's because it's not tolerated,maybe the tax rate is higher and those people don't migrate there,who knows.i get sick of people defending this town,there isn't anything to defend or be proud of.

The county tax rate is about the same here as Cooke county - there's about a +.01 difference (last updated 2010).

And, if I'm not mistaken, you actually pay MORE taxes with city taxes in Bowie than in Lindsey and only -.6 less than in Muenster (taxnet)(and the schools in Bowie can't even compare to there). Besides, we have our lovely utility bills to look forward to.

Factor all that with the creepy side show characters crawling around this town as the weather warms up...not even taxes sound scary.

how does anyone accept money to defend a child molestor and then blow hard about how "concerned" they are with the children of our community?

Vacation / no vacation.
Defend molester or not.
plus the next ten points or so.
There is just something that doesn't add up with Earp.
Jack still has my vote. I hope he doesn't let us down. But he has the experience to hit the ground running. Learning curve is short. The rotating door of justice is the system and the judge. The DA can only present the case. The Judge sets the punishment.
I think Jack will be hungry enough to put some of these repeaters away with MAX sentencing.
Earp spending over $100K for a $100k a year job and jumping the fence in the process just sounds fishy. Hidden agenda?

It just might a bad idea to sling mud at a man who could very well be holding that little wooden hammer pretty soon.

I'm pretty sure that all aomeone showed was alot of stuff he would have rather kept under wraps and that I wouldn't want to be one of his future clients unless I really liked losing.

You're giving him way too much credit Sgt.- I think his overactive ego just overlooked his abilities in it's quest for power. No hidden agenda, just a public faux pas.

You don't know what the hell you are talking about. Jack is the idiot that has provided a plea bargin to everyone of the criminals in the county. He will continue to let the criminals go free if elected judge. Jack as District Judge is a crime in it self.

Well, Glenn, whatever "crime" you speak of, it pales in comparision to the thought of Earp as Judge. God help us.

Plea bargains are a part of every court - without them the backlogs would be impossible to ever get thru. Earp would also be the last man I would EVER want to have to depend on in a pinch - he's done nothing but blow smoke and throw mud, hoping no one would look too closely at him.

The truth's out and he's sure not anyone I want to see with the judge's gavel given his "level" of "experience" and "maturity".

Judge is the boss. The final say. If he thinks the plea is out of line. Not in the best interest of the county, then he says NO. Slams his little wooden gavel and everyone retires to their corner to find a better solution.
