a drug dealer to be successful can't be a user. As a public servant one can not deal the law to citizens of the town and receive favors from the criminal. Has nothing to do with drugs. But maybe random drug testing of all public servants should be implemented. Now!

What because she does her job and doesn't play the politican role??? She is a stand up gal. And goes out of her way to help those that will help themselves. You hear rumors of people but I've know her about 20 yrs and you don't know what she has or has not done in her life. I know that she is a good officer Period....

the same here. she is a great person and very respectable. cant beat her as a human being and as a good friend. you are probably caring baggage yourself thats why you hide behind creweite and I will admit I do and thats why I use fact finder. I came just to stand up for those who have shown me the respect and the one time I did get arrested. I deserved it. Again I look back at all the times I was given a break. Now if you really wanna complain look at the sheriffs dept.

someone please tell me the difference between Crewe,Blackstone, Burkeville they all deal with Nottoway County and have the same Judges Board of supervisors they all have to answer too. And if you are not in the inner circle you don't have a leg to stand on. Crewe is no better than Blackstone or Burkeville nor is it any worse it is still known to be Nottoway County. Read the blogs it is all there and tell your friends to read them. Because I can bet the news papers won't put these opinions in them they still want to look good to the world. But as you see it isn't all that is is cracked up to be. The only good you will hear on these blogs is from the people in the inner circle still trying to paint a pretty picture about a small county that is still going down the drain. We have turned this town into a place full of criminals and dumps. With the new prisons and the land fill expanding every day. Way to go town officials yall really working hard at getting this place clean. You better hope for some real turn arounds. Because this county has nothing to offer besides gossip and what is worse most of the so called gossip is true that is what is really sad. The only new buildings going up are just building replacing perfectly good building that are already standing. Just to emty one good building for a new one of the same old stuff. Way to go. The bad part is they have our tax dollars pay for this.

Let me say that some of the corruptions is those officers letting certain ones go an then nailing and nail in the coffin for someone else in the same demeanor back to who you know not what you know and of course if someone has been scratching your back for years you will stand up for them. If some one has been cutting you breaks for years then you will have good things to say. But if you are the one that the unjust was done to and nothing was done about it because someone like you apparently keep getting off with things than of course you see nothing wrong with this. But I on the other hand got cut and the person that cut me had nothing done nothing! I was denied my day in court to testify against the party. I wonder who my assailent knew or who's back this person was scratching. But if I had cut anyone I would be in jail. So you tell me where there is justice in this county. Can you please. I believe this county is full of just too many second chances and they wonder where all the crime is coming from. But You know what I am not going to stop trying to straighten this county up I have kids growing up in this county and too much is being swept under the carpet. Here and even if I choose to move from this county I still will fight to see it get cleaned up. There for it will be a safe place for other kids in this community to grow up and start seeing the right way to living. See some don't believe they can change things. But I believe if enough people join together in one voice they can make a difference. This is America and the people that hold office need to realize they are in the spots that they are because of the people. They are also role models to our children and they need to realize they are to do their job to the best of their ability anf work for the people not vice verses. Nottoway has ran this county in the ground to long. And with enough people caring and taking a stand it can change. But the problem I have seem to found on these blogs is no one thinks they can change it. But everyone has a voice and can make the difference if they choose too. Too many people in this county took their jobs just to get a paycheck. They have no value in the work that they perform. I believe if you take a job exspecially in the medical or legal field you have to do it because you want to make a difference not just a paycheck at the end of the week. You need to take pride in what you do. And you take an oath to up hold justice and protect people and save people. But in this county it isn't ran that way at all.

If you don't like your job get a new one and if you can't perform your duties to the fullest extent of the law and uphold your oath to the people than it is time for you to step down and let people who are willing to do the job get it done and done right. For any man or woman who can run an effecient house hold can uphold any one of these positions. Bottom Line I don't like people cause people make people corrupt. If I was to take either one of these jobs I don't care if you are my mother, brother or what ever, I would be just and if I took a job in the medical field I would save my worst enemy. That is a promise you make to God and the people. When you make an oath it isn't just to the people it is also to God. And you are only as good as your word. Nothing more. Back to I don't like people cause they make people corrupt, but I do love all people because the good lord says I have to. I don't have to like them I just have to love them. And may god bless all. I pray he has mercy on the un-just. Because God says you have to live by his laws and man laws which we all voted on. The Golden rule is to do unto others as you would have them to do unto you. I hope everyone can live by that.

Let me start off by saying before I came to this town 40+ years ago, my uncle was a cop and he served his community and his town Of Norfolk and upheld the law for everyone including his family and showed no prejudism to anyone which may of gotten him killed. My son-in-law is now a cop has his life out there everyday so don't tell me I don't know what cops do. Let me tell you what the cops here in Nottoway do. They answer to the highter ups, they don't listen to your voice or mine, its the bird that whispers in their ear that they hear. If you are not guilty of a crime and they want you they will see to it that you are guilty. And if you are guilty and you know the right person and have done favors you walk free and untarnished. I have seen more corrupt cops and coverups and abuse of office and rank in this one county than I have ever seen in Norfolk. So don't tell me how good the cops are or what they sacrafice. I know what a true cop does and their risk is life. Here in Nottoway very seldom are they put in that position because they don't do the job that they are suppose to do. Let me make this clear it is not because some of the cops don't want to do their job but they are not allowed to. Because they will loose their jobs if they try to go against they higher ups. That is from them Mayors to the lawyers. I think I have given you enough of my family history you don't need to know no more. Nottoway don't want to look bad but wake up it is bad sorry it can't get much worse.

Look we don't need lessons on beef Say what you really mean. Or did Billy scare you like he did every one else? Does everyone in this county really fear their right to free speach? Is there anyone out there who has a back bone and can speak up and tell what they know and how they feel? Does anyone approve of how this town is being run? Sit back and say nothing and the hot shots win again! The common folk loses again! Is this what you want? Running scared all your life? Let your kids grow up in this town where only rank and money wins? I have spoken out plenty in the news paper in the past and was not scared! Why are you? What runs through your veins? Blood or water? Speak up folks let your voice be heard!!!!!!!!!!

CSI you have dissappointed me. I have waited so patiently to hear what your response is. One because I have a hunch you know the big shots and are in the ring of where you know how this county is ran. I would have hoped you would speak up for what is right and not try and sweep away the truth. I have read many of your responses and you seem to try and keep it at a level not saying anything really good or bad. But just as in the bible you can't strottle the fence. Your either in the right or the wrong. YOU apparrently know how wrong this county is being run and still want to make it seem ordinary. Well I have lived many places and have seen much better ran towns or and cities. So now I would hope you would want what was best for this town but I guess you are wrapped in that poor poor circle of not so lawful people. I was hoping you would actually tell a more siteful story.

I agree with guest 2&3! Everybody is running scared. Well the last time I looked everybody puts their pants on the same way one leg at a time. If Billy could trace these blogs I would like to know where he went to school to learn how.The Last time I looked he'll need plenty of money to try and find anyone on these blogs. I don't think he could use town funds to do it. If he tried to get the feds involved to track us down they would laugh him out of town. Freedom of speech and this web sight may be the only way we can try to atleast half way clean this town. By letting people know out there in the internet world how bad this county is it will have to clean up or more and more people will leave with none returning. And I doubt if anyone reads these blogs they'll want to move here. Hey Billy where would your tax dollars come from then and your paycheck?

You know I do think that using the blogs will help because I do know that officials that can change this county have thier eyes on these blogs. I have tooken the liberty my self to see too it that all these blogs get checked out. So that maybe Someone in the right offices that care about the people can see what is going on right here in Little Nottoway. So That maybe these people would see how desperately we do need the change and that The change would come sooner than even the uppers think. They might want to know that they can and are being watched too. And yes we as citizens have the right to voice our opinions and the facts on here that is why this site was made so people could know about the area if they were looking to move. And for people to have a voice in the community.

I'm NOT scared,and I agree with what guest2,3,4 are saying, but all we are doing is getting our frustrations out only on this site about all the bullshit in this county, sure people may read this stuff and yeah there probably is a few of them that agree with us, however we do have the ones who dont, but maybe the ones that do lets see if all of us can get together some way, some how, and come up with some ideas on trying to fix the problems here. maybe meet somehow and let our voices and opinions be heard. Any suggestions?

I am about to tell my age here or almost but let me bring you up on some events of the past. One lady so I was told decided to fight and she succeeded in bringing the legal aid society to help the poor folk who was mistreated by the law and higher ups. Also the feds came in sat in the Court room to watch the judge fall off the stand in a drunken stooper , He went to the hospital for alcoholics so he would not lose his pension and be disbarred. There was a clean sweep of the Nottoways Sherriffs department when food stamps got stolen the welfare office and a cop helped load the stolen stamps up in the crooks car. He couldn't even remember what the guy looked like. Now remember the police station is right behind the welfare office. The Feds said some Brilliant cops in Nottoway. In the Seventies five police officers was carried to Richmond to be tried for rape of a minor. So as you can see the corruption goes back a long way. IF the Bar Association sends an investigator in here half the lawyers would be disbarred and officials would be removed from their seat. The biggest laugh I got was when Irby tried to run For house of delegates or was it the Senate I am getting old.Ha Ha. Folks use to say he was going to get hit by a car running back and forth from the office to the bank. He doesn't run so fast anymore and neither do I. Stay posted I may fill you in on some more later. I will add the only thing they have had for kids to do was the drive in Theater or the crewe pool hall and now the Theater is gone and how long will the pool hall stay open now that Billy Abel is in burkeville and after Jamies death?

To add to what guest4 has said every four years someone is busted for embezzlement. I can't help but to wonder if that same person is still embezzling an pinning this on innocent people for good facings. Why wasn't more investigation done when Wilson was accused of doing the same thing in the town of Crewe when he was Mayor why wasn't the feds brought in then. And this was all in our local papers. So what was up with that. Its is the citizens tax dollars that was stolen and is being used to run this county but yet the citizens don't seem to have the right when the uppers are involved. And there is no justice when you are scratching the backs of criminals. And why does the Commonwealth attorney keeps the keys to court house records and there are other Lawyers that are on the county board of Supervisors that have the keys so they can go in after hours and do what they wish to tamper with official documents and or records. I know this to be a fact! I have seen and know.

I have lived in big cities, small towns in different places and it is always the same. The thing is people are so used to how their government is run. Changing that will be hard. I know what goes on and so do the people that can change it. But they so far have not moved. The only thing that you get is the devils you do not know. As far as being in with the big shots, I am not and I do not inspire to be. I have tried to do my best, and I have been there and done that, will not do that anymore.

Guess I am at least as old as you, Guest 4, because I, too, remember when Joe Irby ran for the House of Delegates. He was my friend and while he certainly was not perfect, he did many, many positive things for the Town of Blackstone and Nottoway County. He was Chairman of the Board of Directors at Citizens Bank and Trust Company for many years and lots of people got loans to build their houses, purchase their cars, and start their businesses because of Joe Irby and others of his era. And no, Joe doesn't run so fast any more unless their are Main Streets to cross in Heaven because Joe died in April of 2007.

I do remember now Joe did die and so did Jack. I knew them well and so did my husband. But I also know there was a shady side to both. Everybody including me has webs in thier closet including you. As the old saying goes if you live in a glass house don't throw stones. The problem with I'll say with including Joe is there are to many crooks in our businesses including the banks. How many people in Nottoway and Lunenburg Lost thier homes, land, and crops because they were not fully informed of their insurance and the fluxuating rates on thier loans. And I am talking about those who could not read and had contracts read to them? Do you know the number? I can name quite a few my self. I have been in the bank and in the insurance office and heard what these people had to say. The problem is the banks are still doing the same thing today. So are the insurance companies. Most folks knows how to read today but who wants to read all those fine little words. And if you say I'll have my attorney look it over you get why waste your money, I wouldn't stir you wrong. You know me. ask anyone. You get my drift. No we do need improvements here and like CSI said there are problems in all counties and towns. The main problem is excuse me CSI they are like you. You can't change it learn to live with it. But that is not what my God and his word says. I believe that if all is working together for the greater purpose things can change.

You can not change what does not want to change, you can only make your piece of this terra better. Peace only happens within, those that whine, I really feel sorry for them because I used to be like them. We need to stop hating and learning that there are real problems out there, like having your five year old have stage four cancer, not having enough food to feed yourself much less your family. Some people sleep in cars. I have seen a lot of places and there will always be those take more than they give. Peace out.

I doubt anything will ever change with Nottoway. It's as if the ones running Nottoway have it wired in their brain that nothing can change or will ever change for that matter. The same with the grocery store. I see a lot of the people in Crewe go to Walmart in Blackstone. What does it take to get across to town Officials that they need to get a grocery store here? Not a Co-op. A grocery store franchise seen all across America. If I didn't know better I would say I wasn't even in America when you are in Nottoway. Makes me feel as if I am in some third world nation.
