well you must be married to someone who works for the county, or perhaps go with one?
Tommy does a great job, go back on ANY post and copy and paste where i've said different!
As for idiot & dumbass, you have those titles already! Far be it for me to claim "YOUR " titles!
911 isn't going away and the jail will not close.
And the county also does an excellent job!
Oh your that Comrade idiot who runs his mouth on Topix calling people child molesters. Yea spotted you with this post. I already told you I am not employed or related to any county employee. I am a TAX PAYING business owner that has enough common sense to know when things need to be improved. but to you they dont. Sure lets just stay the same rate we have been for the last 15 years and then the next time you go to out of town or out of state to eat that Taco Bell meal, dont BITCH about the amount of taxes you pay there in comparison to what you pay at home. DUMBASS!

Why are you against a small tax increase but you go out of county to Dyer county TN, or Madison county TN, Mississippi county AR, Craighead county AR, Cape county MO, or Shelby county TN and besides the gas it costs you to get there and back, the tax you pay is still higher than if this tax passes for Pemiscot county!

I dont get that!!

As for my two cents? I will vote yes. It's simple logic to me. A better equipped law enforcement means better service.

Today I witnessed Dunklin County driving Tahoes and Pickups. Butler County driving Tahoes and Pickups, the Missouri State Highway Patrol driving Tahoes and yes, Pickups..Ive seen them on the interstates. Mississippi county has Pickups too.

So whats the big gripe with what Pemiscot county driving?
What do you want them to drive down the already horrible county roads, a Prius?

Do you have a land line phone? Most people have cancelled their land lines for cell phone plans because of the costs. In Missouri we all pay a 911 tax on "land lines" but not on cell phones. If the state would pass a tax on e911 on cell phones, this wouldnt be a issue to the county tax payers today. The county doesn't have the equipment needed to GPS cell phones when calling 911 from your cell phone. If you would please read the brochure available you might learn something.

You pay a tax on just about everything anywhere you go. So what point are you making by griping about paying a tax for public services? Do you expect them to be free of charge? Read the brochure.

Cry me a river. We all pay taxes. I pay more than you can possibly imagine and Im not griping about it. Life isnt free, but I guess you think that we can go on going on like we have been since there hasnt been a tax increase in decades in Pemiscot county.

Educate yourself please on the issue! THIS IS NOT A TAX FOR THE SHERIFFS DEPT. Talk to your elected officials so you can understand what is going on in your county instead of pea-sized brain people that freak out on something so small yet impacts this county for the better.
Read slowly:
ANOTHER FACT most citizens are unaware of is All vehicles used by the Sherrifs dept are purchased solely from the Law Enforcement Restitution Fund! Which is monies from court costs paid by criminal defendants!!!
Is anyone aware of this fact?
We already go to neighboring towns and pay higher taxes. If both tax props pass it will bring avg sales tax between 7.975%-8.975%. We travel to Dyersburg & pay 9.750%! And Blytheville & pay 9.500%!
What can you say about your buying habits?
You said it here perfect!! The Sheriff's Office is using the LERF Fund to purchase all of it's vehicles which is a good thing, no cost to tax payers..... But the money that has been budgeted for patrol vehicles in the past, where has it gone? The Sheriff's Office also has used that LERF Fund to buy lots of other bull shit items, in car computers, hell Deputies don't even stop cars what do they need computers for, new Polo Uniforms for the Deputies, waste of money!!!
The Sheriff's Office could cut lots of other cost to save money but they don't. There are more deputies working straight days then ever before, I remember when the investigators also worked rotating shifts, we have a deputy living outside of the county in Kennett and diving his patrol car home!!! The Jail Administrator, who doesn't work the road answering calls is driving a silver truck around like it's his personal vehicle. Where does this shit stop?!
Tommy really needs to step up and stop trying to be beer drinking friends with his deputies and be their boss, and make decisions that are best for Pemiscot County!
The County just recently in the last few years went to the local cities and upped there dispatch and jail fees which went up over doubled from where they were.
There is no way in hell I'd vote for any tax for the Hospital or the Sheriff's Office!!

its not bullying when he's getting to the point of the matter. this tax won't pass because it hits well both know against it without realizing what condition the County Sheriff's Department and financial condition the county itself is then. They think we can continue on the same budget that we've had for the last 20 years. None of you will get off your lazy ass and research anything. You just come to topix and be armchair politicians and think you have all the answers and vote no on every issue. That's why this county is dying because of the idiots within it.

People frown on running from the truth. The truth is, this tax probably wont pass because of the idiots in this county dont want change. No lets just keep things like they have always been, no progress, no better public services, just live on champagne tastes with a beer budget. THATS PEMISCOT COUNTY!

You people are clueless when it comes to bettering yourselves. Your all wanting a hand out at someone elses expense because God forbid any of you to ever contribute to the cause.

You people amaze me. You gripe about a small amount of tax to help your own county but I guarentee that 99% of you drive out of town to neighboring states to eat, shop, buy clothes, hell go to Wal Mart and pay MORE in taxes and plus the cost to go there and back....and thats alright. BUT HELL NO DONT INCREASE MY SALES TAX WHERE I DONT PUT MONEY BACK IN TO THE COUNTY I LIVE IN......then you run around saying how bad Pemiscot county is. Then move your dumbasses away and do the county a favor.

if its a small amount tommy sure is crying a lot to get it passed. 300.00 to 500.00 a yr is a lot for a new tax. anything we buy will be going up food gas. all 14 deputies don't need a suv to take home and the taxpayers paying there gas going to work and back. hell let tommy save and use it for 911. cut the night time deputies done to one any time you go to hayti there siting in the truck stops over there.

Talk about armchair politicians...your here trying to get more money, I'm here trying to save money as retirement isn't that far off. I have researched and I work ! Lazy ass must be your side of the fence. And IF you don't work for the county WHY are you belittling EVERYONE that doesn't agree with YOU. Why this county is dying is because we have NO JOBS! Are you seriously that silly? And if YOU move out of the county we will have ONE less idiot as you say!
And ONE more time , IF it doesn't pass, 911 is NOT going away and the county jail will NOT close!
As of right now for ME, if I could retire tomorrow I would draw 1300.00 a month.. NOW you think I don't need the extra 500, 600 or more a year? THINK AGAIN ! Most of pemiscot county residents are not as RICH as YOU!
