What happened between those two? Word is Walton's got a bug up his bum for Mathes. They used to be drinking buddies.

Thats old news Law. JP and JW havent been friends since way before the last election. The reason:
JW is all business when at work; JP doesnt know what being all business is. Their riff had nothing to do with after hours issues; it has all to do with what went and goes on at the courthouse.

Walton is a good man. I'm friends with his daughter and they're good people. Don't know much about Mathes but he seems like a jackass.

I think your 100% correct. JP parties all night, and expects to play around at the court house all day. JW knows when walking through those doors in the morning, he has a serious job to be done.
A lot of mistakes have been made in JP office and that unfolds on JW. He's all business, and JP is all foolishness when time comes to do their very important jobs.

You hit the nail on the head!!! Judge Walton is going to leave some very big shoes to fill whenever he retires! To say his courtroom is run smoothly and justly is a huge understatement! Carter County is lucky to have such a hard working, fair judge.

John Paul is nothing but a drunk. To say Walton is so great is not a completely true statement I remember going to the Cottage in Johnson City and those two party buddies there and drinking like fish and getting in the car and driving home drunk as two skunks.. Now as for Walton in the court room he is a pretty stand up guy and does have order in his courtroom. Glad to know that the party buddies are on the outs though at least John Paul is not getting favors from the judge when it should not be given.

I'm sure this is 100% accurate considering it is on topix. It is such a shame that people aren't more like you "Benny"...armed with nothing but the truth and posting it on topix! Keep up the good work "Benny"! HAHAHAHAHA!!!

If anyone can deny that JP Mathes isn't a drunk, then please tell where you've been hiding for all these years.
The scary part is; he hold a serious position in this county.
Many mistakes have been made in that office, and mistakes can't be made when dealing with that large amounts of money. Not to mention, all the files that has to be kept up to date, absolutly no room for error.
And then to think Carter County has one of it most famous drunks at the control tower.
Yes, he may be a good guy to joke with, but he doesn't belong in that office....thats where Carter County makes mistakes in politics.
If Cater County only knew where their tax dollars have gone........

Maybe I should clarify...I AGREE that JP is a worthless, drugged up, drunk (and that's putting it mildly). I think it is ridiculous and embarrassing that he has been voted into his position TWICE! Also, all the "mistakes" aren't mistakes...many are favors to his drug dealers, etc. It is mind blowing that there are so many negative comments, and ugly truths on here about JP...but he was re-elected. Looks to me like some of these topix "regulars" should get off the computer, go register to vote, and then VOTE this looser out of office! Otherwise...no matter how big of a joke JP is...stop talking about it on here because it makes Carter County look like it's full of dumb-butts who can't even figure out how to vote for qualified candidates!

Walton is a sick drunk that's needs to be impeach, he has no sense of the law. A judge that would turn over a kid to druggies is totally out of his or her mind. No wonder our children have become uncontrollable and the country is going to hell in a hand basket. No justice system in Carter County, just want to be's. One day the Judge will stand before THE JUDGE and he will be the one who will pay for all of his wrong doings.

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.
