Is it Craig Overman, the pastor at Kilmore UMC? And is this Craig Overman the same Mr. Overman who just got approved as Ms. Cottrell's replacement?

Let's just say.... Rememberer Dr Bill? Someone that scammed the county for how long leading them to believe he knew what he was doing? This was one that ran under the radar for all these years until 4 years ago. When ask to see the company " books" It was found that they were not at the home. They were in another workers possession and had not balanced for years everyone want to throw this blame on the county. The county has been paying $30,000 a month to keep this entity open. Do you keep a department head there continually when your losing money? There comes a time when you have tho cut ties an find a different plan

This must be a hot topic since the counter on the site indicates over 30 people monitoring Frankfort Topix.

Rev Overman is Mr. Evan's pastor. He is a honorable man and will do a good job.

But, as the poster mentioned above, what did this Cottrell do to warrant being passed over for retention?

If you follow the social medias, it would seem that she has alienated Mr. Evans and Mr. Weaver.

Ken Hartman states that the county attorney questioned Mr. Evan's about any possible conflict of interest and seems that he found none.

Without being privy to that conversation, I still think that there is indeed a conflict regardless of that conversation. The lawsuit between the two has to taint their opinions, it's human nature.

It would seem that these two commissioners are picking up where the Beards left off in regards to having unwritten agendas.

Mr. Evans, in general, has the ability to say things to people that sets them off. That's not exactly a good trait to have in an elected position.

Mr. Weaver seems to have hidden agendas in regards to who received the counties healthcare business.

When either one is questioned about certain subjects, the windmill's for examples, they are quick to say that their constituents do not welcome such activity. However when asked to host several public forums in various townships, they would not commit.

These qualities do not lend themselves well to serving the county constitutes.

Mr. Nu Viewer probably has a differing opinion on this and I anxiously await his response.

Do you not apply for grants from the state to keep things a float?

Better yet, how do several commissioner's allow her to screw up for over 20 years before they do anything?

I am sure you have all the answers for us, long-time poster.

The only credentials you need to be appointed to ANYTHING by these two commissioners is to be pals with them. Did you residents learn nothing from the county insurance scheme?
Who got appointed as county insurance agent? Somebody's pal. At a hell of a lot more cost to the county and regardless that the previous agent of many, many years did a very good job. Remember these two at election time people.

To bad you county council and commissioners can't cut the ties with the golf course and IVY Tech. I don't want to hear the BS that it cost this or that because you can waste a ton on a Private Company like IVY Tech.. Get over yourself..

These two commissioners are no good. They rank up there with the Frankfort mayor and his administration. They all need to be out of office. I sure hope people in this community open their eyes and vote them out. I believe these groups have more lawsuits pending against them then anyone I know. This just shows how they abuse their power. Their day is coming !!

Did you know that you can start a topix discussion on this elsewhere?

Back to the discussion of the Cottrell situation, Skip Evans and Burt Weaver are not representing the people of their areas well at all.

How any commissioner can say that those 20 or so people that we're attending the meeting don't represent the attitudes of other community voters is just wrong. There was a Facebook page with a petition signed by over 500 people. Now I am not stupid and realize that it was a grassroots operation and there would need to be some verifications made, but even 80 percent is over 400.

I think Yep has got it nailed to the wall in regards to lawsuits against these a users of political power. I hope the council shuts their butts down on everything they can.

Sooo you people are wanting this situation to turn into a D C situation? No one believes there might just be the chance this woman did get away with not doing her job for 20 years? Look at Congress and Senate we have those losers in for years getting away with all this crap! I don't know? I just wonder if it was really looked into deeper, one might find they had plenty of reason to let her go

Skippy should have recused himself and not voted, now because of conflict of interest and a pending lawsuit and giving jobs to friends and friends of friends he has put his own position in jeporady. Clinton co, voters deserve better and demand better. These clowns are shameful to our community.
