You all make me sick, truly. You complain about black people trying to get in to office? Really?

You can't drink the water, the roads are completely crap, our city stick money isn't used properly, every grant we have gotten has "mysteriously" gone missing or used for things that we never get to hear about, and the people who work in city hall all drive nice new cars.

Am I the only one seeing this sh!t?

Mr.s Shannon is a good person, she has issues just like everyone else. You say shes rude? Have you ever had a problem with your bill? Kay Hurst is probably the most rude person I know. She doesn't keep books correctly and will write you a bill for the wrong price in a heart beat.

I know of a time when someone had to have them hold a check for a day until the problem was solved. They went the next day to get their money back AND THEY HAD ALREADY SPENT IT. The deal was they would hold the money until the following day then give it back and all would be well.

The people currently running this town only have their selves in mind.

Does that mean that the people trying to get in will be better? I have no idea. I'm not saying that Mrs. Shannon and co. will do any better, but at least they are willing to try NEW things around here.

Times have changed, folks, racists are the minority anymore. Don't like it?

Go live outside of society.

Been going downhill? been????? Now thats funny right there. This craphole of a town has always been the copley-burris (and relatives) sideshow with a few peppered in around them. Pat Souders and his family is the only reason anyone takes this place seriously at all!!! Its as if everyone who lives here is related or inbred. No wait! They are! Why don't you ask someone at the gas sta...oh, i forgot. There is no gas station. Oh, i know, go to the dollar store and ask, no wait! No dollar store! I forget, go to the used car lot and buy a ...not one! we do have a post office (hope that keeps panning out for you) a school, and it finally is a nice one) and a repair shop for cars, a place to view the dead. And a cop who makes anyones life miserable who dares to drive through this dumpy town.The Brookport "click of God" church( no disrespect intended to The Lord on this one. He is not the author of clicks or racism) and a couple of others where the overflow can go.(Black people need a church too here. Not going to let them in the other two are you?)
This town really is dying and has been forever because of the aforementioned things.
Let a new mayor with new ideas come in and upset the delicate balance that is Brookport and the whole town has a "come apart." They like it like that. Dysfunctional. Let the Tuckers build a snack stand and see how that goes for you. No new businesses are welcome unless the right last name owns them.
Going downhill alright...

I find your comments narrowminded and amusing. Many people incuding me did not start having problems when Obama took office and I imagine you did not either, so please think of another excuse for your hatred. You gave him a chance now go back to what they mean like what our race is really known for and of all the things that we taught the people we stole from another country and brought into slavery they have not mastered serial killing, rapes, incest, trafficking (especially little girls), pornography, white collar crimes, meth labs, drugs... and the list go on--- we master that daily and blame it on people of color but then you would know that wouldn't you since you are so knowledgeable. If you look around your neighborhood and your neighbor, if and that is a big if, if you or one of your family members or ancesters are not guilty of one of the crimes I mentioned, you know someone who is. Let us start working on Brookport and making it better without hate and jealousy. Don't bother to respond to this comment, I refuse to abuse my intellectual palate with more hate and rhetoric from you. You are the epitome of what Brookport does not need. Have a blessed day anyway.

I am so tired of hearing about slave owners and ancestors of slave owners. Just get over yourself and admit you are just as racist as the cracker who put the stuff against blacks on here who is also a racist. That kind of talk just sets progress back one hundred years and its outdated. If you want chage, then stop the racist talk on both sides.

I cannot believe such an ignorant person has such a ignorant comment. Just in case you don't know what ignorance means, lack of knowledge, learning, information ect. I'll pray for you, along with all the other ignorant people in YOUR world.

Blacks are more racist to whites than anything I have ever witnessed. Who do we not want to help us? Whitey. It was even in a movie.
