I could not believe the way A.C. Brown and Lance Terry attacked Sharla Spoon last night, trying to take her newly "Council" appointed position of City Clerk away from her, it was sickening. People had to get up and leave the meeting.

Ken Edwards was in on the plot also, leaning over the row in front of him, he kept hollering "A.C. A.C." in an attempt to give A.C. advice to fight Sharla's appointment as City Clerk.

The next thing you know, Ken Edwards picked up his phone and ran to the bathroom, then Lance Terry picks his phone up and read a text, wonder who sent it. Then you see Ken coming out of the bathroom and sitting back down. Then you see Lance getting up from the Council bench and running to the bathroom also, with his phone in hand. Then a few minutes later you see Ken pick his phone up to read a text, hmmmmmmmmmm. Then directly comes Lance out of the bathroom and heads back to his seat on the council bench.

Anyway, A.C. and Lance were ranting and raving how they wanted "Separation of Duties" in City Employees. After it was all over with the council gave a lot of Sharla's old duties to the Finance Director, who, under the instruction of Lance Terry and A.C. Brown was now responsible for receiving money, depositing money, recording deposits, writing the checks and signing the checks.

And A.C. handles other people's money for a living, God help us all!

A.C. and Lance picked on the wrong person, Sharla is related or friends with about 3/4's of the town.

They can kiss any re-election thoughts goodbye.

I heard about this at the coffee shop this morning. They said several people left because they just couldn't take it.

The beuty of it is,(if there is any), the whole thing is on audio and video, they deny it and we will get Newcomb to put it on his website and show them for the liars they are.
Bad Business Policy

How can A.C. AND LANCE justify giving one person the duties of collecting all the money, recording how much they collected, making out the deposit slips, takes the money to the bank and also writes check and handles all the invoices proper "SEPERATION OF DUTUIES"? Sounds like the council gave one person way too much authority over the handling of city money.

Sounds like a coctail for disaster to me.

Yes, and to think A.C. handles other peoples money, scary when you think about it.

I heard all about this. Edwards texting Councilmen during the discussion, yelling at them to get their attention. Is he an unbiased newspaper reporter or a lobbyist for the "Good Ole Boys Club?

Why did he lead that charge against Sharla? Was the City Clerk job the City job he was after? That is an "ELECTED POSITION", I THOUGHT HE COULDN'T HOLD AN ELECTED POSITION IN THE CITY?

Who do Lance and A.C. really work for? Edwards or us the people?

I agree with another post I read, the "Greenwood Mafia" exist and is alive in Greenwood and it looks like the Godfather is Ken Edwards with Lance and A.C. as his henchmen that do his dirty work for him.

JUST GREAT.

Not only was Ken Edwards hanging over the chair in front of him yelling at A.C., as he yelled at A.C. he was pointing at his phone to let his little puppet know the he wanted to send him a text message.

According to Ken Edwards, he is the Editor of a paper, he was there to report the news. I don/t think he should create the news, nor to instruct those councilmen,(A.C. and Lance), that are in his back pocket, on what to say. It is so unprofessional for the Editor of a paper and Councilmen to be running back and forth to the restroom so they could text their stratogy back and forth to each other on how they wanted to attack a City Employee that was only doing what the Council told her to do. Actually. this is beyond sickening in my book

Got Kens paper in the mail, "The Greenwood Troublemaker", I believe that is what it is called. He showed he had no class when he slants the truth on his front page story to make readers think Sharla spoon and Wilma Jo Cabe were trying to slip something dishonest by the people. He fails to say that what Sharla had been doing for the last month is what the mayor and council had instructed her to do a month ago.

The City Attorney approved of what Sharla was doing a month ago. It was nothing but an attempt by Lance and A.C. to kick Sharla out so they could put either their buddy Joel or Ken himself in that Temp position.

Now we know who the real trouble makers are in Greenwood, and they don't care who they step on to get there. And Wilma said she would help out "if Needed", nothing set in stone.

No I don't think that he thinks the people in this town have him figured out. I think he will do his best to try and prove his actions in going after Sharla and Wilma can be justified to the public through his paper. He's a reporter now you know.

Have you people forgotten he had Steve Tedford fire Sharla and then was belittled so that he hired her back when he first took office. Fired her, chief of police wife and Mike Hamby's wife. The council had a fit when this mayor fired someone. AC even ask Hamby if it was proper for a new mayor to fire someone when he took office. Ha! Hamby said yep, happens all the time. Read minutes of January,February 2011. Wilma put it in the minutes! It was ok for Ken to do it but not new mayor.

Great statement - These thugs like to play by their rules and want everybody else to bow down to them. Edwards can never run for mayor again, and he is still trying to fire Sharla. I feel a political firestorm coming on.

I can't believe this - well I do believe it. I saw how Ken Edwards operated for four years. He tried to fire Sharla while he was Mayor and now he is getting Lance and A.C. to go after her. When does this turn into harassment?

I have known Ken since 8th grade and I have always considered him a clown, a trouble maker, and back stabber. He tried to fire Sharla once and it didn't work so it looks like he is going to gather his goons together and have them do it for him. I my book that is a wimp!

You don't need to worry about Sharks. She is a smart, tough young lady. She is very talented and a hard worker. The city couldn't do any better for someone as City Clerk.

I don't think Edwards has any business telling councilmen to verbally attack a city worker.

Things around he weren't so vicious until Ken Edwards and his goons showed up on the Greenwood political scene, luckily Ken has been booted out of politics.

You have forgotten the newcomb/Campbell, Pettway/Selkirk, Newcomb/Selkirk, and Joe Seigman, Pete Brown and other mayors that had their enemies. It didn't start withheld Edwards and it won't end with Gabbard.
