it didn,t surprise me when jesse mullins was on channel 3 news today. concerned about taxes on a piece of property he thought he owned and someone else was paying taxes on the same piece of property!!! this corruption goes back to the weaver days and probably beyond. its hard to say how many people are paying taxes on the same piece of property in Lincoln county!! whitten,bowman,weaver and others involved,where did the tax-payer money go!! there should be nothing short of a federal investigation at the courthouse since the 80,s elections!!!! these criminals have been running the courthouse for years!!!! people be sure you own your property and not someone else,taxpayers beware!!!as to the lincoln journal your paper is nothing but political and has been for many of years,this paper is not and has not been a part of the solution but a part of the problem!!!!!

Those hickabillies come up here to Chicago and we teach them how "good" government works. We get a cut of the profits.

You failed to include McCann and the twisty assed Prosecutor.

Pretty crappy that our taxes are going to skyrocket in one year because the previous assessor chose not to even bother to do his job for the previous six years.

Taxes are based on value which translates to fair market value. Since 2008 real estate values have plummeted. This "performance" by JOsh Brumfield is an act. The objective is to get more, not less, money for the schools so the poor deprived football coaches can have their astroturf.

The babbling assessor has not give one, not one, example of the incorrect assessment versus a correct one. The game is to over value property to give the politicians more money to spend.

"Babbling", "performance"????? You sound like a disgruntled Dempsey supporter simply trying to make the NEW assessor look bad while being forced to clean up the mess left by decades of assessors not doing their job........You are ease to see thru

Don't care about factions and don't buy into the Lincoln County practice of hero worship of those in office on the premise that they might be able to do something to help a particular party. I notice the "new" assessor (your words) kept the convicted felon the old assessor hired.

His public statements and the two letters sent to landowners did not include an iota of hard fact or analysis. Only "the sky is falling, the sky is falling.

He may be sincere, but he looks amateurish and manipulative. As far as property tax valuation is concern the absolute is the fair market value which over the last five years has hit the skids and deflated (reduced). An additional factor for Lincoln County is the fact that the value of coal cannot be held to be valid because surface mining is dead.

He is opting to use the "some are paying their FAIR share, etc. which is socialist mantra of the Obama regime's arguments.

What appears to be happening is a carnival like magic show where this dramatic finding of potential tax increases will punish all those crappy voters that wouldn't vote for a school levy or any levy to keep the money spending liberals happy. He is going to be a good guy and spread this dramatic increase over three years. So instead of picking your pocket once he is going to do it three times.

I am not making him look bad, he is making himself look bad by just shrieking but failing to provide examples and any verifiable analysis of the present values versus what they should be. He is looking a lot like Judy Johnson in a suit.

I agree somewhat about the board of education.their upset of the failure of the levy. they can,t use the money correctly hen they do get it!! it goes to wasteful spending and linig their pockets. sure no doubt the taxpayers will bear the burden in the next few years for these criminals that have put us in this postion.there should be nothing short of a federal audit for the offices at the courthouse for the last four elections to see where our tax money went!!!!this has been a way of life for these crooks for years. they will slow down now since they are under the spotlight,but probably not stop their misdeeds.we as a people should protest,why not they are doing it across ameican over the zimmeran case!!!!

Why would someone want to live in Lincoln County West Virginia. No jobs, only one high school, redneck cops, open sewers, trash piles, curvy roads, no golf courses, no movie theaters, no swimming pools, druggies, bad politicians, nasty river, trees hanging all alone the highways, no good restaurants, nasty stores with high prices, and now higher land and property taxes. You all are the biggest joke in West Virginia.
