So Frankie turned states evidence. I bet Woody Burgess and Mike Alred are looking over their shoulders this afternoon. Keep this in mind folks. The only reason Frankie plead guilty is because he was offered a plea deal. This means he is singing like a bird. He is telling everyone that will listen how he gave money and stolen goods to his bosses.

Woody and Mike will be indicted soon I bet.

Walter/Alfred- If you are sincerely concerned about the future of this town then run for Mayor/Council and try to make a difference. I could actually admire you for that.
Getting on a message board and stirring sh*t is pathetic. No wonder you are single.
Maybe you can meet channel 9 at city hall gain to give them the "citizen reaction" whenever "round three" goes down. Don't wear the black shirt this time. It makes you look fat.

By the way. How's your bowling partner Mr. Keller doing?

You are either Walter Ballard or Gary Dellinger. They are the only two in town who can't keep their godd*mn mouths shut and let it go.

I would say you could be Tony Drum but he can't spell well enough to type a full paragraph.

Well to bad for you. I am NOT Walter, Gary or Tony. As far as not letting it go. Why should I? If there is corruption in this town then it needs to be rooted out not swept under a rug. This is not "stirring up Sh*t" as you so poetically put it. But expressing my opinion with out having drugs planted in my business or vandalism on my property.

And as far as you not wanting it stirred up, why is that? Do YOU have something to hide? And if you live in Lincolnton as your profile states why do you care?

I often wear black but only because it matches my heart.

Aldred- Maybe I am mistaken. If so I apologize. I have just had enough of Mr Ballard's antics. I have no problem with a concerned citizen speaking his mind and keeping all of this corruption at the forefront but that guy (Walter) is a D-BAG. Those that have done wrong need to be and will be punished.

Gees, can you not have a forum without using such language? Are these naughty words all that the citizens of Cherryville know how to speak? Wow! Now, some know what it is like to have something stole and nothing done about it. Never knew police officers could be so low as to take from those in the town they were supposed to be protecting. I was always taught to respect the officers. Evidently, some were not taught respect.

OK, last I heard this was suppose to be a free country and people could wear what they wanted; well as long as their tail-end was covered.

Walter I hide my name to keep my business, friends and family safe from attack. For some reason someone wants to contribute my comments to you. For that I apologize. But believe me when I say I am not you. LOL

Alfred, apparently we share the discust of hiding the guilty, but in the near future there will be no hiding as the FBI has already said there was much more corruption than they had ever anticipated. Let the guilty take their lumps now like the rest of us have for years.

Thanks Walter, for letting me know someone has a problem with what I post, but I apologize to the misinformed person who has wrongly credited me with someone else's work. If you have a problem with anything I have said, I wish you would come to me about it. If I have said something wrong that offends you, I will be glad to set it right.
