Atta boy Joe. You give 'em all hell about how stupid they are for not following your incorporation mantra. Problem is you used up whatever credibility you had years ago.
You are looked upon now as nothing but a joke and an imbicile. Harp away. With your piss poor subscription numbers it's obvious most of the area gave up on you and your ideas years ago.

Iceman's writing makes perfect sense if you've ever read the illiterate crap Joe Karl puts in his paper.

The first 4 blogs make no sense to me!We bought 4 acres in cosby 2 years ago and will move there in 3 more years.I think it's a beautiful area.We have met so many wonderful people up here the last couple of years.I guess if you look for the bad things you will find them.But thats in every State you go to.I wish more people would look for good things.Or they themselves should try to make things better instead of whinning all the time about how bad people or things are!i really don't want to offend anyone out there.But take a step back and look at what there is to be thankful for!and if you yourself have room for improvement? I know I do...I hope you have a Great Day LOL

Moved here and like it quite a bit. Am in a good financial situation so am not on any govt dole out. So, my bucks add to the economy of Cosby in a positive way. Typically, most blogs contain many grammar and spelling errors that are no more than typos....once again judge the important things in life and living....a positve advantage to Cosby is that there aren't any 5pm traffic jams....the air is cleaner that industrial areas, there is land to spead out on, and there are a lot of very nice people here.

Well it is plain to see you will fit right in as you are a total moron. East Tennessee has one of the worst air quality factors in the country, "Positive" is spelled like this and "spread" is spelled like this. Now all you need to do is to get someone to tell you about the major EPA dumping violations that took place not far from you and how the owner was killed in Mexico. They say Cosby glows in the dark at night from the illegal and toxic chemical dumping. How much did you get ripped off for your cancer patch deary? You need to do some reading at the EPA web site before your eyes fall out!

The area is full of money, like an open vault. Full of inspiration. The thing is it is also full of corruption, people trying to get something for nothing. It is a very spirtual place and if you can apprecite the good things, you will be great, however, the temptation is lurking for corruption and wrongdoing. If you open your soul to appreciate, the rewards are life changing. If you seek the shorter path, then unfortunately pain and sorrow will follow. The place has a lot of history. Good and bad...many places do, but it is much more intense, either way, at the Smokies.

They also want to see the dumb ass red necks in action...

SEVIERVILLE — A Knoxville man was in the Sevier County Jail Monday facing charges of indecent exposure after allegedly disrobing in front of a 16-year-old girl at a local store.

Dwight Andrew Crosswhite, 38, of Knoxville, allegedly exposed himself to the girl inside the Kmart store on Forks of the River Parkway at 4:26 p.m., said Public Information Officer Bob Stahlke of the Sevierville Police Department.

The victim's mother said she witnessed the incident and attempted to call emergency dispatchers immediately on her cell phone, but the man wrestled the phone away from her and fled the scene.

The victim was able to describe his car, however, and police arrested Crosswhite minutes later on North Parkway. The woman's cell phone was found in the car, Stahlke said.

Crosswhite was being held in lieu of $10,000 bond.

These are Dolly's Backwoods Barbies! You can't make this stuff up. Theses people are too dumb to drive nails in the snow.

Cosby is a lot like that place in Star Wars where you find only what you take in with you. If all you see is murder and despicable people then it is your own soul that needs to be examined.

Seems to me that if your interest was anywhere above flapping your gums then you would be involved in being the answer instead of just blatting about the problems.

Cosby is a chemical toxic waste dump you idiot. Only the back woods morons could get all those chemicals dumped on them when they were hiding their stills and pot plants.

Donna; Have you seen this document? Of course wether or not this is actually true or mere official coverup is a question yet to be addressed. The document you cited was from 2000. Do you have any newer information? Obviously this is an issue which must be thoroughly aired.(pun intended)

If all bloggers had to worry about was typos or speeling...intentional error....then what a boring page this would be....I did not get ripped off on my purchase and see it just as it is in reality....a get away cabin with a delightful view. Am older, capable, educated, retired and deserve to do as I please. MORON does not fit my character description here or anywhere else....name calling is moronic. Documents from 2000 are meaningless these days....can you trust the source? Any source? time is short for me so will my ashes will glow and who cares....? my choice. Trust this govt??????????hahaha It is what we have but TRUST it....? It took a year to announce the recession....a whole year to announce it after the whole world called it....trust those reports....hmmmm sooner send a check to Mr Madoff to invest....ya can't spoil it for me.....

The South East Red Necks just love to defend their stupidity to this day. Do you know why Miami got the Cuban criminals and Appalachia got the Scottish/Irish drunken idiots?

People are people regardless where you live. You have good and bad apples everywhere. Life is hard enough, rather than people judging each other by their last names, bank accounts, education and cars they drive, etc. Don't judge anyone until YOU walk a mile in their shoes or with them!!
The bottom line is the people who move to Seiver County chose to move here, if you don't like living with us rednecks move out. I don't know why people think they are better than others. Look in the mirror - the last I knew we ALL take a crap in the same outhouse. By the way I am a college educated Redneck, and proud of it, and I chose to live here in East TN and Sevier County.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Let us ALL try and find some PEACE in our hearts.

I moved here because I came through the mountains many years ago on a long sabbatical from Boston and fell in love with the forests and the people. I've never regretted that decision.
