It is my understanding that our current mayor has not paid his personal property taxes under the name Bison Brothers Inc or LLC. If this is true he needs to step down from the city commission. If he cannot afford to pay his own taxes, he should not be making any decisions with/for the City of Fort Scott. If he can afford to pay his taxes, and has a problem with the amount, he should pay first, then go through the proper channels to request refund.

Let us make all of our people pay their fair share before they have a right to make any decisions in the city or the county or receive any compensation from the city or county.

I have seen too many business people currently still in business on the unpaid tax rolls. You know who they are too. Stop doing business with these people

That is the same understanding that I had and a quick check says that the second half of 2010 is also not paid. I know that slumlords make the list and maybe if the city sat on them with code enforcement, having those rundown properties would not be so attractive to them although I have heard they are fining some of the people but there must be no exceptions. I do not think we, the county or the citizens, should be using services from those that are delinquent in their taxes. Seriously, Justin Meeks is collecting a check from the county from our fair share and not his own isn't that one that just makes you sick! At least Jim Adams doesn't get a paycheck from the taxpayer's pocket but I agree that if he is part of Bison Brothers that it doesn't seem like he should be sitting there talking about spending the budget. For 6 years I have heard these people say how much they love Fort Scott and Bourbon County and how they want to see improvements. Well, pay your share of the darn taxes! Maybe if you do that and improvements can be made, maybe businesses will be attracted to the area. I'm done paying my unfair share and from watching the U-Haul rentals, I'm guessing I'm not the only one. Where's the integrity?

And Obama- release your records. The American people have a right to see your medical, educational and Selective Service records. Of notable interest would be your senior disortation.

Is this the SAME Jim Adams who was "APPOINTED" to a (6 figure) job at SRS, in Fort Scott, by the govenor..right after many workers were "encouraged" to retire to save the state money?? If so,..with his wages he should be able to pay ALL his taxes..and, I understand no more hours that he actually spends ON that job..he has plenty of time on his hands, to make it to the court house before closing time.

Bourbon County Review would likely do a better story and more in depth investigation into this.

Why don't you release your medical and educational records, of notable interest your lack of education to what are private and public records. He has released his yearly physical information just like every other President. Why don't you go get a physical and post the results on the internet for everyone to see. Same with education records, FERPA makes it illegal to release educational records by anyone other than the person whose transcript it is. Other Presidents and Presidential candidates haven't volunteered theirs. So why now are you asking to go around a law that is 38 years old?

Selective Service records are public. You can go to the National Archives and search all you want. Due to record retention schedules the records you search for may not be there any longer.

Obama has released more than enough records already. Get over it.

And so too, sir, has Mr. Romney. If his records are sufficient and acceptable to the IRS- end of story. Get over that too.

One year taxes return is not enough. He said he may release one more Oct. 15. What is he hiding?

I think you should stay on topic! Maybe you should ask him if he has paid or follow up at the county.
I don't think he is the right person to represent this community for a number of reasons. It would be nice if we could get some long term respectable citizens to run for these positions.

no one in their right mind would run for office in BBCO. only benefit is to be ridiculed on Topix by largely uniformed people who do nothing for the betterment of BBCO
