There was a meeting today at Carthage city hall for the victims of the May flood. It was for the home owners who became victims of the flood damage where there homes sustained major damage and FEMA was there to help with a buyout of these homes which helps the victims to get out of these homes and they will be codemned. Once again this meeting was for the VICTIMS. Well, in walks SABRA FLOYD HODGE AND BILL FLOYD. Why were they at the meeting? I will tell you and you wont be suprised. They were there to take advantage of the situation. Sabra asked FEMA if they would sell her the houses of these victims. She was trying to get something for nothing to later make a real estate profit for herself and her real estate agent father. SHAME, SHAME, SHAME on SABRA HODGE. You came to take advantage of the situation to benefit yourself. Those people went through a devastating time and are still going through it and all you can do is try to benefit from someone elses tragedy. LOW BLOW for sure. I hear you are running for Mayor. What in the world are you thinking. I know what Im thinking you dont have my vote. Anyway, she got her answer from FEMA, and the answer was no.

If thats not wrong I don't know what is. Those poor folks lost so much, I can't imagine what they thought when she came in and tried to "do them a favor". I didn't realize that her dad was Bill Floyd. Isn't it funny how one little piece of information makes a big difference? That would account for her signs in some vacant houses that he has listed. I wonder if his clients know her signs are in their yards? I've also noticed her sign in a yard that has another persons sign. I wonder is she just putting them where ever she wants? I'd love for her to come and try and put one in my yard! She has no business in the mayors office.

first, it was a public meeting. they had as much right to be there as you. second, if she did ask fema to sell her a property that implies that fema would already own it. think about it. if fema keeps a flooded house it will most likely be demolished and tax payers will have to pay to maintain the empty lot. if someone buys it then the county and city will continue to collect property taxes. are you volunteering to go maintain these lots when fema demolishes these homes? i didnt think so. keep your nose in your own business. you must be a democrat.

I dont quite understand your line of thinking. If FEMA bought the houses from the flood victims and she wanted to buy them from FEMA how is that taking advantage of anyone? I dont see how asking hurts anything. Every business's main purpose is to make a profit. I can see where it may seem in poor taste to some but I dont see that its as 'wrong' as you try to make it seem.

Also, If the houses will be condemned then she will obviously have to spend a lot to get them back up to code which would severely cut her profit. So I wouldnt call it getting something for nothing.

I wasn't at the meeting, but apparently the original poster was there so I believe there is no...IF...she asked the question of FEMA selling the houses to her. And the question was if they (FEMA) buy the property would they sell it to her. So no, her question does not imply that FEMA already owns the property......

I am not the original poster, but I am a democrat......and you 'young conservative' are an idiot.

Yes, she may have had the right to be at the meeting (possibly, although she was not a flood victim). If FEMA buys a flood damaged property - the intent IS to tear it down and leave only open land - that way in the event of the property flooding again there is no one living there. There would be NO OTHER REASON FOR FEMA TO PURCHASE THE PROPERTY OTHER THAN TO TEAR DOWN THE HOME AND LEAVE OPEN LAND....THEY ARE NOT GOING TO RE-SELL IT TO SOMEONE ELSE SO THEY CAN GET FLOODED OUT AND FEMA CAN BUY IT BACK AGAIN.....

Possibly her intent was to buy the houses and move them to other locations. But I agree it sounds as if she is waiting until FEMA offers the property owners a small amount then she was hoping to take the property off FEMA's hands for possibly even less money than they paid for it. Why don't she just buy from the property owners??? The only reason I can think of is that she stands to make a LARGER profit if FEMA will sell to her.

Sounds to me like she was perfectly within her rights to ask if she could buy the properties in question. Only she knows why she would want them. Maybe build a public playground or something? What is it with democrats being so scared that somebody is going to make a profit on something? Thankfully we have some "young conservatives" coming along to replace the antiquated democrat mentality.

Did I say I had a problem with her making a profit? NO....What I said was ......again....."why don't she just buy from the homeowners if she wants the property??? the only reason I can think of is that she stands to make a LARGER profit if FEMA will sell to her."

I NEVER said she shouldn't try to make a living. I personally try to do just that every day. Don't you?

The actual point of my post was that FEMA WILL TEAR DOWN THE HOMES.....THERE WOULD BE NO OTHER REASON FOR FEMA PURCHASING THEM IF THEY DO NOT REMOVE THEM SO NO ONE ELSE CAN LIVE THERE AND BE DISPLACE BY ANOTHER FLOOD........DO YOU UNDERSTAND NOW?

My problem with 'young conservative' is not his/her political party. My problem is the way the post was worded and that they felt as if Ms. Hodge was not being insensitive to the flood victims.(She was being insensitive) She could have contacted FEMA later and not brought up her interest in purchasing their properties at a meeting for FLOOD VICTIMS.....and the his/her post showed doubt that she (Ms. Hodge) even asked the question in the first place when the original poster was obviously in attendance at the meeting and 'young conservative' as well as myself, was not.

Thats all, im done, I don't live in the city limits of Carthage, and didn't get flooded out, and don't really care who they elect as Mayor. But you might want to put some extra thought into your decision if you live and vote in the Town of Carthage.

The problem is that she would buy a piece of property for well below market value. I'd burn my damned house to the ground before I know that she buys it.

I just heard of what's going on in this forum and wanted to give my two cents worth. First off I was at the meeting. My observation was this; Mrs. Hodge arrived at this meeting with her father and chatted with only one homeowner briefly. They sat down and Mr. Floyd continued to talk with one of the homeowners about the condition of his home. The room was quiet for the most part until the Mayor started the meeting and then introduced the woman from TEMA not FEMA. Neither Mrs. Hodge nor her father spoke or asked ANYTHING of the TEMA rep. and did not ask or speak to anyone there while the meeting was going on. Mr. Floyd asked the TEMA rep if it was possible to get a buyout if he had to take a property by foreclosure after she got up to go get a form she forgot in her car. That was the extent of their participation. Now, with all due respect to the ignorant writer, one can only assume "Smith Co Business Man" has other motives. It appears to me that they are trying to attack the character of Mrs. Hodge and her father. Now I'm all about calling someone out about their motives, but I do not "create stories" I look at the facts. So, I picked up the phone and contacted Mrs. Hodge about what I have read here in this forum. Here are the facts… Mr. Floyd was there because he has financing on one of the houses that was flooded so he was there to make sure that his interest would be protected and that any paperwork that needed to be completed was, in fact completed. Mrs. Hodge was there because she is running for Mayor. When and if she becomes Mayor, she felt she needed to be on top of any information that would affect the city and its finances. She also said that as Mayor, she wanted to investigate all possibilities of river development for the promotion of tourism and wanted to know how the whole flood loss would play into that. To allege that Mrs. Hodge had an "ulterior motive" is both irresponsible and mean spirited. You've done nothing more than uncover "YOUR" motives as well as uncovering your ignorance of the process of the flood buyout by FEMA. Personal insurance covers some losses; FEMA comes in, and in some cases will cover losses as well as "buyout" the homeowner. The owner can choose to accept or deny the offer in most cases. If a buyout is accepted, then a regular real estate transaction is realized and FEMA has the property deeded to the local government to do with as it wishes. Here's another area in which you have no clue, for an investor to first persuade a local government to sell him a parcel of land that has been bought out for flooding reasons would be nearly impossible. If you did get it as an investor, to build a new home in these areas would require harsher restrictions of construction and would not be worth an investor's time, especially in this city in its current state. Now, for the rest of you mob mentality types, "Furious", "to much soap", "Just a nobody", and "Oh Really", your hair trigger opinion is so typical of ignorant people. You're so predictable, "screw the facts" let's take a shot………. please. Let me tell you, if you are a voter in the city, we have a winner in Mrs. Hodge. She told me some of the ideas that she has to get this town rolling again and I think you would be quite impressed, I was. Our conversation was frank and straight forward, and all I could think about after coming back here to read again what some of you have said is SHAME ON YOU…….. I don't like calling people stupid… but, you're all pushing it.

Oh Knows A Little. How funny you are. A river tourism development plan. Mmmhmm. More like Flyodville plan. I can assure you that Sabra Hodge and Bill are only in this race for one thing: themselves.

I, however, am not ignorant and I am not pulling a hair trigger. I know the facts more than you or anyone else about this situation, the people and anything else going on in this little town. Everyone knows that she had no business being there other than to find out what everyone was getting in regards to their homes, to showing off her face to say "Look at me. I care.", and to see if she and he could somehow profit off this mess.

Why would I want to vote for ANYONE who's father is going around saying, "I'll make sure she gets elected even if I have to buy the votes." Yeup, sounds like the person I want in office.

I do not know Sabra but she has done nothing wrong. Do you know how many others were there that are running for city mayor? Well at least she had some concerns and showed up it sounds like she cares. On the other hand what about Emily, she is running for city mayor give me a break. I do know this lady and if people here want to elect her then the new name for Carthage is GOSSIP CITY USA. Things will be coming out about her ethics before election day, which they should, it is not dirt but truth.
