Mike was not re-elected as chief of the MFD. Everyone got tired of his and his wife's bad language! It was F this and GD that all the time. Other things went on too, but the guys in charge now, just don't want to sling mud. But if Mike keeps running his mouth, I am sure they will change their mind and reveal everything to the public.

For starters, your poll options don't make ANY sense.

no they dont make any sense. i agree with concerned things went down hill when he was chief. and mike is a good guy dont get me wrong but he got in way over his head and it was time for a change. and i as well have heard the bad mouth talk from his wife and not only nasty but talking about residents as well. That kind of thing just had to stop guess he wants to just drag it on and on. There are some things he might not want his community to find out about.

It makes sense if you look at it as a loaded poll, which it is. You either vote he was done wrong or they need him. A 3rd choice could have been all the above.

Oh, well in that case no business, department, nor volunteer center needs one individual bad enough that it should not be able to function without one individual. I am sure that the department existed before him and will exist long after he's gone.

Change is inevitable in life. Change allows old to become new, bad to become good, good to become bad, and everything else. Improvement usually always happens eventually after change though. So.....sorry Mike, I am certain that you will find your niche in life somewhere else, just not there anymore.

it has been a year sice he was chief . this did not just happen so why is big d doing this? we had to listen to her run her mouth about millsfield enough when this happend . it was crazy and he goes around with a ball cap on that has a big x on it covering up the millsfield fire dept name. Now just how immature is that? the community does not need someone like that at all. it seems things are on the right path now and this needs to be left alone.

everyone should like everyone look what happened 3 years ago when the tornado came through here we lost a lot of dear friends you never know what tomorrow will bring. So mike, Dana or whoever the respectful thing to do is for you to get on here and ask for anyone leaving bad comments to stop. dont ya think? think aboutit this very department god forbid your home ever has a fire will be the one who jumps on those trucks to do there best to save you, your family and all things you cherrish. I hope you realize this.

the problem is dana is the one who brought him down. as far as millsfield fd they did the right thing by voting him out of the chief's spot or he was going to bankrupt the department. to all of his supporters you need to find out all of the truth not just what he tells you. i have found out a lot of things which i know to be the truth by just sitting at the store and some of it comes from his people( strange how some of the people you think is your friends are the ones that talk about after you leave the store hahah). everything from hopkins spending so much money on hidden cameras at the fire station to shopping sprees at sams and walmart to unaccounted money which was given to millsfield or to buy a sign. i have a friend who works for a print company and was told hopkins spent thousands of dollars of department money on hats and t-shirts( a hat or a t-shirt will not put out a fire or save a life). one thing i do know from being at the store is hopkins needs to learn how to take a bath and clean up not only the body but the mouth also. lord man take some pride in yourself, grow up and be a man or is someone else pulling your strings

Millsfield Fire Department is a volunteer organization, if you want to help the community, help when needed and keep all the whining and fussing to yourself. Several in the department just seem to want to keep a fuss going all the time. Why try to ruin someones name by making up things and writing them in the newspaper about the sirens when the person in charge of this has no access to the department funds. Why make up stuff that is not true.There are some people in this community who never are happy unless they are causing a fuss. This community organization does not need Mike and his wife because the department is not run by a couple it is run by the members as a group and the community. All this fussing makes the community look bad and why print an article in the newspaper when you can ask for a meeting and discuss nonsense stuff like this in private. Everyone that knows the guy who the article was written about, knows he has a very good reputation and has worked in the public for years and in no way would do anything wrong. Mike the next time you are unhappy try to discuss things in the department with the chief and committee members try to handle things as a department in a professional way.
