Sounds like the typical Carter County Buffoon. They had a good City Manager with Charlie Stahl, and let him slip away.

From all the talk about the electric bills I thought some would attend to complaine not that it would do any good but unlike what the city manager thinks people do have right to complaine

I may be ignorant, but I'm not stupid. Spelling correctly shows intelligence. The word is spelled "guilty", not "guily". You are GUILTY of being a STUPID jack ass.

Before calling someone stupid for a spelling error, be sure you use spell checker on your posts. The word is spelled voicing not voiceing. I'm just saying that no one is above a typo, brain -fluff or whatever....

Below is Fred in his own words. This was taken from a Letter to the Editor that Fred wrote. You can see his real nutty feelings. Congradutaions Elizabethton you got a good one. More to follow.

"I am elated about the increasing display of the sacred Confederate battle flag and take issue with those who say that the South fought the Civil War because of slavery. Slavery was only a catalyst. This is propaganda perpetuated by the federal government. I am proud that my grandfathers stood in the ranks of the Confederate Army and withstood the overwhelming onslaught against our freedoms guaranteed under the original Constitution.

There was no moral Federal Army fighting for the sake of ending slavery. The North profited from shipping slaves to America, causing the deaths of millions of blacks on board their ships. Lincoln was not in favor of abolition. Also another myth; Lincoln was not our president, Jefferson Davis was.

It is ludicrous to think that thousands of Southern men would fight a war over only slavery when less than six percent owned slaves. The average Southerner fought to defend their homes and families from the murderers and thieves unleashed upon our homeland.

The North treated the South as a colony. It is no accident that we are the poorest of states even today. The South was burdened by taxes and tariffs that benefited the North and not the South. It was a clash of cultures. The Yankee loves big oppressive government, and the Southerner cherishes limited government and liberty. When Southerners decided to resist, they had no choice but to fight. After all, the Southerners were anything but cowards. They were true patriots. Honor the Confederate battle flag and your heritage always."

Fred is friends with former City Mgr Charlie Stahl. That's how he got the job. Some members of council wanted a yes man and thats what they got. Meanwhile, Clark and Moffitt spend all the money on his watch. It's true. He just sits back and takes "staff" advice. Now the City's finances are in bad, bad, shape. They raise electric and water bills, add "fees" and then cut services. Brilliant! Don't hate Fred. He's a puppet on a string, a yes man for Sam and Laporte. Want to do some good? Vote in the next council election. Get rid of those idiots!!

Edens needs to go, Alexander, Carter, and Tester would see it done. The other four members love him three of these are up for elec. in 2012. Vote people in that will vote Edens out. He is just wanting his five years in so he can get a big retirement from the city. Just look how he handle replacing David Ornduff Good Old Boy system.

Edens is a product of the good ol' boy system. He friends with Charles Stahl. Stahl is the one who got him the job. Ornduff's replacement is a young man from Ohio. He was already the City Planner, so that seems logical. Hear he is a smart guy. But Fred, Ornduff, Clark(no longer works at city), and Moffitt(also left out in a hurry?) have caused a lot of mess. Just ask anyone down there about how they got in financial trouble. Now we fit the bill as taxpayers and citizens. Edens is laughing all the way to the bank for a big retirement. By the way, he hates Abraham Lincoln and says Jeff Davis is his president!! Thats fine, to each his own. But could you imagine if NAACP or one of those groups got wind his nonsense?? More embarassment for E town. Good Lord! He is a public official!!!!
