Well hell, Fat Boy Gunny is running that there jail. Brandon we elected you as sheriff and here ya go and make a reserve deputy the chief deputy over your full time officers and in making that stupid decision lost some good officers.Boone, unless you wanna be a one term sheriff than it is time for you to man up and take control of YOUR department. Gunny is a A$$ and I cant stand that cop. He has the personality of a d!ldo, always in vibrate mode. Boone you still have a shot to turn your department around. Stop letting Gunny play sheriff and you resume your elected POSITION. Gunny is getting a little big headed with all the power he has been given by you. I am very disappointed that Boone would allow a outsider like that to have so much say in our COUNTY. I think you should have to live in the county not just rent a place down by the river so you can have a legal address and then go home to wifey in a separate county.

I think you should leave him alone, and let him do his job for the County. I have noticed more patrolling in the County, since he has become Sheriff. If you have problems, in the town of Celina, you have your own Police Department to help you. So just give Brandon some time, I like what I see out of his department so far. Again, people in Celina, pointing the finger at Outsiders. We outsiders live here, pay taxes here, and should not be discriminated as "Outsiders". You really need to accept us, instead of labeling us as "Outsiders", because we are here to stay!

Rick Lisi the big bad chief deputy who drives a county car home to putnam county everyday. AND as far as boone ,no his chance is OVER its to late now. Boone has 2 Lawsuits against him right now, 1 of them is a FEDERAL LAWSUIT. And there is a chance of another lawsuit if a certain court officer who is good friends with gunny/rick ,if that court officer doesnt leave a certain female alone. can you say sexual harrasment. But your right gunny/rick is running the show not boone.

Is there a law against being a Sheriff/working in one county and living in another county? What about all the citizens of Celina, do they all work in Celina?, I bet those that do work, work in another county, and live in Clay County! What is the difference people - please wake up!

you dont have a clue, there is no law saying that people from one county cant work in another county but boone told his deputies when he hired them they would have to move to clay county so why is chief deputy living in putnam and driving a car back and forth on tax payers gas? if you think i'm lying just ask cain or some of new deputies thhey had to move to the county

What is there not to have a clue about? You did not answer the question? Don't Celina/Clay County Residents employed in other counties and live in Clay County? Did they not say earlier that he rents a home in Clay County? I really don't think you know what you are talking about, but then tell me I don't have a Clue! Please get a life! Over and Out

Is he honestly experienced enough to be the Sheriff, or just a favorite?

The Sheriff's office is not the biggest problem. It is the judges that keep letting all the criminals out of jail so that they can show back up by the end of the month to make a little more money. Why not vote Jimmy White out of office? You want to make a BIG difference then you have to go all the way to top.

1.5 Hours x $12.00 hrly rate =$18.00
$18.00 x 20 days worked per month =$360.00
$360.00 x 12 months/yr =$4320

So therefore, he donates $329.40/yr to drive to Clay County to protect and serve these unappreciative people!

No, he has a job just like everyone else. I work in Cookeville and purchase my fuel and supply my own vehicle. If you work and have to travel, then you are responsible for transportation and expenses to and from your work/employment, THAT"S LIFE, and everyone does it. He IS NOT donating anything, he is traveling to his place of employment to earn a paycheck, the only difference is the taxpayers in Clay County is supplying him expense free transportation to and from work at the cost of $4000.00 a year. I am not an un-grateful citizen, just a concerned taxpayer that says live in the county if you want to take a county vehicle home or drive his personal vehicle if he continues to travel back and forth from Putnam County.

Maybe it was a part of his negotiated employment, to get some new blood/thinking in Clay County - as a resident I think it could use some new ideas/thinking, instead of all the old thinking that is well documented here on Topix. Let's look at his position - Deputy Sheriff -$12.00/hr no benefits. Would you risk your life daily for $12.00 an hour? Really not many people would! Also, we need to understand the Sheriff Dept takes care of the County, the City Police Dept takes care of the City and furthermore, you have a THP office in the City of Celina also. Why so much for such a small town? Seriously, Clay County needs to get out of the 1920s. It will never do that by continuing to hire the Favorites/Rotating Officials like we do. For instance, the Judge Position, is a rotating Position, White, Monroe, etc. We definitely need some new blood here, but we will probably never live to see it!

Well, The people that work outside Clay County don't get to use a car and gas paid for by tax payers to get to and from work! Wages also paid for by tax payers!!!

If Sherriff Boone made that kind of aggreement for compensation, then he needs to report that during a county court meeting and explain why he is paying those kind of benefits and justify why to the commission and to the tax payers. Furthermore the deputies choose this line of work and know the pay and benefits prior to accepting their position. If it isn't enough, then go and find employment that offers more. Isn't that what I or anyone else would have to do. If the Sheriff made this kind of negotiation, I as a tax payer want to know about it and get an explanation of justification for doing so. I as a taxpayer Do NOT want my taxes raised to allow an employee to get these kinds of exhuberent benefits, it just isn't right to make taxpayers pay for this.
