I realize I'm Republican, but I think Darrell Pickett was a good mayor, plus he was a kind man. Rhonda (however you spell her foreign last name) wants to ban smoking along with Dr. Shirley.

Americans have these little things called FREEDOM and RIGHTS... If I want to smoke in my car, I'm going to f***ing smoke in my car... and dip.

Go ahead and smoke in your car. There has never been any vote come up, or discussion either to my knowledge, in regards to one smoking in their cars.

Dr. Shirley is TRYING to get it a law where Glasgow citizens can no longer smoke in their cars with small children, or possibly even anytime. She's already stopped it from public places, which in some cases I can understand, but smoking at a business you own is illegal? That's bullshit

You say you think Darrell Pickett was a good mayor. I say he was a bad mayor. The man was indicted in a money scam along with those two sisters. The only reason his charges were dropped was on count of the good ol' boy system. He was kind all right, the kind we no longer wanted or needed as a mayor in Glasgow. Don't forget about the mess with Johnny Travis and Maxie Murray at the GPD. Those two were crammed up Pickett's butt so tight that I'm surprised the man could cut a fart without spitting them both out of his butt.
Here are the numbers;
Darrell G. PICKETT 39.23% 1,623
Rhonda Riherd TRAUTMAN 60.77% 2,514
4,137
The Glasgow residents spoke out loud and clear, we don't want Darrell Pickett. Not for a mayor, not for a pastor, not for a chief of police, not even for a dog catcher.

As for the smoking issue, we'll have to fight for our rights with Dr. Shirley and her supporters. That is the only thing I agree with you on. Have a good Sunday.

your right what he did to bewely was wrong if he whated to blame him he should had blamed him self as well bewely did not have a crystel ball to tell what was going on every momment every hour, to see , he was just looking for someone to blame well if thats the case he is just as much the blame, pickett has hurt a lot of people in this town, and stole peoples constional rights in this town, pickett is nothing but a bad crook in this town.

What Pickett did to Bewely is wrong. He is dirty and has nothin to do with smoking crap. I had I had to vote for Riherd Trautman just he is a dirt bag kissing up to other dirtbags in this town.

I almist want to stop and pee on that huge sign of his at larry glass

Smoking with children in the car or the home is a form of child abuse. The children have no way to defend themselves against it, and are forced to breathe it. The smokers should have enough love and consideration for the children that they don't expose them to the smoke. Oh, and 'cracking a window' doesn't protect them either. That's all I have to say about that!!

Sorry, but I'm not a liberal, just concerned about the children. You're one of the lucky ones, and I'm glad for you.

and so just because by some grace of god you have not yet been affected but every study known to man says second hand smoke is a carcinogen and can cause everything from growth defects to cancer to asthma in children you want to expose them to it. Its child abuse plain and simple. Why should children stink just because you do. It burns your eyes and nose. Its gross and its a bad example. You are uneducated and you need to get a life.

I don't really care if you are a democrat or republican, some of you are just bitter. It is clear you have personal issues with Pickett, more than that of his office.
Some points ... he was a good mayor, did you ever stop to think about the fact that he kept Glasgow going during the bad economic times we have had, has even gotten jobs here...but I guess that don't matter
The issue with the"sisters". A case of them being guilty and trying to place the blame elsewhere. That is easy enough to clear up, look at the records, look at the ones Pickett signed and the ones that was changed by the thief. He ask for the audit that found the missing money.
Murray and Travis ... it has been reported time and time again that the mayor and other officials tried to get info on what was going on, but no one in charge would give them info.
And for Bewley, Pickett did nothing to him. Read your back newspapers, the city council went into closed session and by a unanimous vote told Pickett that Bewley had to go. The council made that decision.
and I would be very careful taking about him being a pastor, your dealing with God on that call and he has alot more power than Pickett or any of you so called interested citizens.
The next year is going to be a complete joke, mark my word.
uh no

The council had absolutely nothing to do with firing Bewley. That was a decision made by pickett. The council has no authority to hire or fire anyone. You are absolutely wrong on that. As far as the next year goes, i'm looking forward to seeing how it goes. Has to be better than what we have had.

He should have been able to know what his 2 FLUNKIES were doing, most of the rest of Glasgow was hearing about it.

In order for pickett to vote there had to be a tie. That mean that an even number of council were present. If one was absent there WOULD NOT BE A TIE. He broke a 6/6 tie with all council present on the first reading of the smoking ban. All were present at the first reading. You are wrong.

I don't care what anyone says they will never change my mind about Darrell Pickett, and the bad thing is I once went to church with him and looked up to him. He was a good man until he became chief then his head started swelling, and he then started lying and back stabbing people just to get in the mayors seat. Pickett is the one who needs to turn to god for forgivness. Darrell Pickett has done nothing but let this whole city down and for Travis and Murray Pickett new what was going on and blamed Gary Bewely when things started getting hot and he had to have a answer for things.

I don't understand some people. I understand that smoking is hazardous but who are some of you to judge? I mean come on it's about time for some of you to wake up because what the local, state and federal governments' are doing is trying to take our freedom away. They are forcing us to do things and stop doing things that are still protected by constitution.
