I think the post from yesterday from NHS83 deserves reposting:

Craig thought you weren't responding. Man for someone not responding you sure keep posting.

Laurie Elkins is a Jerry Springer reject. She showed her white trash core in the parking lot after a council meeting.

As for her being a good mother. Not according to your friend Karen who posted about a pathetic excuse for a mother to someone whose children didn't have Mrs. Elkins issues. What you hypocrites forget is that your own people have issues. Yet you try to defame others. So don't be surprised when the dirt and skeletons in their closet are thrown out there for public consumption.

So if the poster karen was talking is a pathetic excuse for a mother then Laurie Elkins needs to go back and start over because she is a horrible mother. Just using Karens standard of a good mother.

Oh and just so people don't forget. Here is my post from earlier:

Don't respond.

What we know.

Craig Matthews while handling his brother fire fighters money, mishandled funds and his bonding company paid out more than 40,000.

Craig Matthews was living outside the city and ran for re election.

Dave Casebolt while on council put a bogus ordinance through so one business could get video lottery.

Dave Casebolt while on council allowed his friend to take 20,000 from the city for a SALVAGED TITLE TRUCK. CAR FAX SHOWED LEMON ALERT.

Dave Casebolt is using his position as Mayor to put his employer in a position to make money off the city.

Dave Casebolt has since becoming Mayor given away city services FOR FREE to select one select business.

John Young has had two lawsuits filed against him. The first one the SEXUAL HARASSMENT SUIT has cost the city a six figure settlement. The second one coming, another harassent suit will cost the city more than the last.

John Young has made statements under oath that totally discredits him.

Dave Casebolt is taking no action against his friend A.J. Shinn for sleeping through calls.

There are things going on right now that when exposed will shock many.

Don't forget Craig you aren't suppose to respond.

Craig unfortunately for you most people don't just scroll past it.

People are now finding out about your fleecing your fellow fire fighters in Charleston. The fact you misused money and your bonding company had to pay out more than 40,000.

Seems to be if this was as big of an issue as you are making it out to be he would no longer be a Charleston Firefighter... My understanding is he is not only still with the fire department, but was promoted not to long ago... Is it possible that rather then misusing the money that there were human errors that anyone could make?? Maybe that is why the City still employs him...... I am sure they investigated it. If it is as you say it is... Your ramblings are getting a little old.

Yes indeed, a cool nice brisk walk down any street in Nitro is now a pleasure. People seem to have an upbeat positive outlook and are more than willing to say hello and have a nice day. What a wonder it will be this spring to get out in my yard and plant my flowers and yes i am going to try my hand at some real gardening. Tomato and Bananna peppers along with some cucumbers sound just fine to me. I may even try my luck with some watermelons

Go Wildcats!

Yes it sure was a great day for a walk. I thought I heard the theme music from the Andy Griffith Show when I was walking, maybe it was just in my head!

Actully no. Do you realize how hard it is to fire a civil servant.

The bonding company he worked for had to shell out more than 40,000. Not to mention the amount Matthews had to pay out of pocket to save his job and keep charges from being filed.

No human error would have a bonding company paying out that kind of money.

If you want the truth. Do what I did and start contacting the fire fighters he works with. As for any promotion. He is still under civil service and can test and must be promoted within the rank structure. But I don't see big boy on any committees where his input is valued. I don't see big boy ever getting past his current rank. Not with his jacket.

Keep whistling Craig - no one cares about you anymore. Just like one poster said, "Who is Craig Matthews."

Good luck. I've had the worst luck with tomatos since I moved to Nitro. I can't get them to grow for anything. I don't know what the problem is
