As far as respect goes, I might have a little more for you, if you were willing to actually use your real name when you actually do resort to name calling people as you have done to me in this post. I have been open in who I am and were I stand, maybe you can try the same!
I am free to post under any name I like; just because you use your real name here doesn't mean you can't and don't comment under any name you like either. Do you think everyone on the board is part of what you called the "good ole boy network" (YOU were the first to 'name call') conspiracy or did you just lump them together for effect? If not then why didn't you specify (like I specified you and the only name calling I have done is to you- not people- pathetic); the other candidates have class and good judgement enough not to make USELESS, self-defeating comments. Furthermore, if you are awarded a job on the board, to be "effective" and isn't that what it's all about, you will have to convince these people with whom you work-together (whoever they might be) to listen to your ideas and respect your 'judgement'... these horrible people, some of whom according to you have or will "award friends and family with jobs"- your words- eat 'em and weep.

The current administration has and does appoint family and friends to jobs...period!Answer me this,why are open board positions which are not elected not advertised in the paper so people can apply for them?The reason is the same as always...the people on the BMA the Mayor don't wnat anyone rocking the boat,PERIOD!This forum shows clearly what happens around here when "you ain't from here"!

The only thing missing here is "who really shot Kennedy", if you notice the vote is fairly even, and there doesn't seem to be alot of Sells supporters posting, so does that mean that "US" Sells backers are too intelligent to argue, or waste our time here on topix, uh oh I just did what I was too smart to do. I only did it so the people of less intelligence know what the Sells people are up to.

Since this thread was started over the hiring of Lackey as Parks and REcreation director, IT has wandered away from that far away.
My opinion, Brice is doing a great job, this year they have 20 T Ball teams that I know of, these little kids are shaping the future in sports in our schools, so do you have any Idea how many kids are gonna enroll this year alone?? I think that by seeing all the activites going on at the park, Ballgames, the uniforms, the coaches Brice Lackey is doing a fine and outstanding job as director of our Parks and Rec.......The job the ladies do with the planting flowers around our fair town, is absolutely wonderful.I appreciate the colorful assortment that they do every year, the planters along main street are beautiful as well.
Now back to the ball fields, I have seen Brice umping a game, he is a coach as well for a team, he has refereed games during basketball season, so It seems to me like he is giving 110% towards the kids in the town!!! Give him a break, he is doing a great job!! Brice, I appreciate all that you do for our town and the parks!!!

Oh and by the way, for anyone out here who wants to complain, go to one of the games going on at the park, you will get a thrill everytime. If you have never seen a T-Ball game, please indulge yourself just once. There is nothing better than to watch the little ones while they are learning the game!!

I couldn't agree more Blue Mann. Even if I had been undecided before, I would absolutely have to be for Sells now. So many cutting comments from so few ISP's that it's sickening. Not to mention the issues they discuss. All the things that are so worse in other towns. We have it made here except for the jealous busybodies in everybody's business. And whatever bad happens in this town is Sells and the BMA's fault. But whatever happens good is not to their credit. Go figure. This town has not stayed afloat for so many years on it's own. Jim Sells and staff are directly responsible!!! All that and having to battle the damned if you doers and damned if you don'ts. Everyone has been spoiled too long and this small mob is always trying to tear this town down. I especially how these people move in here from Maryland, Michigan, Illinois, etc and instantly tell me (who's lived here 50 years) what we are doing wrong and how they can tell us how to run our dumba** town. The more these people get on here and put the current administration down, the more it pushes everybody the other way! We will see who get's the last laugh!! Go Jim Sells!!
