now everyone tells differant story when help in the county mayors office gets a raise and are paid more than the rest then thats the problem the other clerks wants the same and everyone tries to pasa the blame.The truth is all offices have to ask courts for help and raises and its out of hand.The circuit court clerks have more work and need a extra person but rest can do job with the official and a helper if the official works.

Yes, We did have a hospital. The local people chose not to patronize it. Mostwanted to go to the adjoining counties. We had two very good competent Drs here that were doing a topnotch job. But, the hospital kept losing money.
Just another example of the locals going to another county for treatment and also to buy their goods, and since it was privately owned it began to close.

That is the facts. We had a hospital. And they said that they would have to raise taxes $2.00 and the county exc, said that the people would not go for that. There for he decided to let the hospital close. But they can raise taxes $2.56 because the county is in debit. Is that out fault..?

For the general public to read. Go to page 77 and look what Rebecca Smith is paid $32,787.00. Look at all others who are paid $19,114.00. Keep in mind none of these employees have benefits. They are not even offered benefits.

She is not worth more than the others. Two other offices in the courthouse work much harder than she does, and has as much if not more responsibility. Read the lawsuits they did not file for the same amount that Ms. Smith is paid. All of this is public record.

Therefore again money is always hidden in this audit. That is why they pay Danny Wilson (retired state auditor)$10,000.00 each year to arrange the books before the state comes in to audit and again when the state is finished with the audit.

so you are saying ex comm.that hix raised his help first and got upset that others wants more, hmmm that sounds like politics and what does his other secretary make and are they paid from more than one fund? maybe that is the reason the books need to be "arranged" before and after audits.If this is true no wonder taxes keep going up, paying for unneeded lawyers, and someone to arrange books to cover up hidden money from state auditors ,Where is larry britton when we need him.

Now I know how a bail out works wall street and banks make bad decisions and the government bails them out with our money. Our mayor and officials spend or can't account for the money we trust them with and the taxpayer bails them out with more of our money,NO WONDER MY TAXES WENT FROM 600 DOLLARS TO NEARLY 900.
