Central City is heading straight done the gutter. The town looks terrible and odviously the city officals aren't doing a good job. Greenville looks great though, very proud of what they are doing.

So---Jerry Mitchell has a drug problem? Addicted to pain pills? What else is new? There have been many like him in the past and there will be many more in the future. We have had doctors, attorneys, nurses, schoolteachers, in the same situation----only difference here is----he got caught before he could get help. I just wonder what "excuse" he is going to use when he goes to court------IF it even makes it that far?

Yall only know half the story. He didnt just go and do some drugs or buy drugs on the street and get busted. He had knee surgery on both knees before he went into office. Dr had him on Pain pills. Another Dr. Prescribed more and there ya go. Dont act so shocked. It happens to people everyday and he is no more or less human than anyone else. And believe me when I say that he is not someone that looks down on anyone. Your getting him confused with David Rhoades.

Hey drugs are drugs no matter where you get them : pain pills bought from a drug store is no different than the ones you buy off the streets Drs and lawyers are no different than any other person who is hooked, just because you have social status dont make it no different than a reguarly old person; come on he just got caught up in the old perscription drug addiciation that a lot of people have done also.

Kim face it ;he is hooked!! he is now know as the drug user he is. The only difference between the street junkie and the office junkie is one buys their drugs off the street and the other gets theirs from their Dr friends.A horse of a different color. David Rhoades has nothing to do with this try and shuffle the blame away from Jerry and put the heat on David. I dont like the things David has done nor the things he gets by with but face it this topix is not about David buy the Mayor the Junkie who got hooked on pain meds.

Why in the Hell would you use COAl Severance money for rehab? No need in wasting money on trash.
There are too many children and elderly in need of the basic's just to survive. The druggies have had their chance and they chose to throw their life away. It's about time we invest in out future!
