I Think the KOOL-Aid Guy is RIGHT!
Wow, you must be very old and senile, you stated you have always lived in Rossville a few posts ago. And by the way, the commissioners control what the money is being spent on and the county council just votes to give the money. So don't give me this bullshit that the commissioners didn't have say in buying the Mallory building. They had all the say. The council just stated they would pay for it. Damn, you are old and senile.

I didn't comment which commissioners, I just corrected you in the fact that the commissioners have the last say if the building is to be bought, if indeed this was county money. I will agree with you about the Beards and also about wasting money on IVY Tech but I am here to tell you, the commissioners are the ones allowing this money to be spent on IVY Tech. They do have the last say. Yes, the council can say they have the money but that is the extent of it. Commissioners decide. So go tell Skip Evans to quit wasting money...and Cory Boyles..

Mr or Mrs Nu Viewer,

Are you gonna embarASS yourself anymore on here?

Just because you proport to "go to the meetings" doesn't mean you are all knowing about how financial things are handled.

You are a classic case of someone who is wanting to be something that he or she cannot be, all knowing.

You should immediately terminate your topix privileges before you further embarASS yourself and your family as well

This is a PERFECT case SCENARIO you ALL tell ME!
"GO TELL" "GET OFF HERE and STOP" While at the SAME time HALF the TIME agreeing with SOME of the things I have to say. The PROBLEM is whether the COMMISSIONERS or the COUNTY COUNCIL or the MAYOR or the CITY COUNCIL is Spending YOUR hard earned monies and YOUR and MY REAL ESTATE and WHEEL TAX Monies rather than STORM the MEETINGS and say NOOOO! You come in HERE and Complain! When someone like ME comes in here to Get you to SEE the Light you ALL call ME a SENILE old FART that should STAY in ROSSVILLE and RUN my own life. WELL just REMEMBER- I STILL PAY taxes - I STILL pay REAL ESTATE and WHEEL TAXES and YES I DO go to the MEETINGS and UP until January TWO NOONE was ALLOWED to SPEAK at the MEETINGS so NOW Get your BUTTS to the MEETINGS and do some GOOD in THERE not in a PUBLIC Website where ALL you can do OR all I can DO is TYPE. Ya VOTED for THESE Guys for CHANGE now MAKE EM CHANGE!

What is the mayor and his administration going to do when they realize they cannot use the Times building due to the fact that its located in a flood plain? Why didn't we use one of the vacant buildings or lots located around town, such as South Side school or the old Kmart lot. I think its time to utilize some of the properties that have been left empty. Look at how Frankfort school corp. jumped on the Ray Ruddy building. They made improvements and didn't leave a building to rot.

I agree with your philosophy. However, I think that the Frankfort School Corp. should have used the Southside building rather than acquire prime real estate that could have generated tax revenue for the city and council.

And don't Forget YOUR tax monies helped pay the BACK taxes for the RAY RUDDY building that the SCHOOL Corporation Decided NOT to pay. They decided INSTEAD they needed for YOU to pay for an $800,000 Tennis Court and a $160,000 SIGN outSIDE of that Admiistration Building. Hmmmmmmmm
