Mark my words, the place will be robbed again and again and again. The police have done NOTHING. OSBI was never called as the police claim until the case goes "cold" there is no need. Hmm, a state owned and opperated place gets robbed not once but TWICE within just a few months but I guess your right, these police are much much smarter than the criminals they allow to roam free and destroy and damage property. I give it 6 months before the state closes the place down and Judy Goad is striped of her agent license. It was a favor in the first place that she ever got the license. She has quite the checkered past...

I have been around this town a long time! I remember when the last agent had that office! It was nasty, filthy & unorganized. We as a town, were all so greatful to see Judy Goad, come in and clean up the place. Addressing previous post, I realize is to people that have nothing better to do, than cause trouble. However, today I sadly lower myself to this site, because of what I have heard in this town. I have gathered that some people like this Jodi person, however I know of just as many whom, could pick her faults apart, as ya'll are doing Judy.
I shall not choose sides! I know of several other agencies that do not have actual tag agents that work in the office. They just serve as Agent, and run their office as a business hiring...WORKERS. Which seems to be the actual problem here. Talihina needs dependable and trustworthy workers, so that Judy Goad does not have to endure these harsh comments. Who cares what she does, she is the boss! Send her reliable applicants and make this towns tag agency a better place. As far as checkered past? I know for one that OTC cannot allow people with checkered past, to hold an agency. This is government people. They choose their agents wisely. Now, some may not like the way she runs her office. That's a personal problem. I don't like how alot of these businesses in town are ran. However, I still eat their food and give them my money, because this is my home. I would hate that they all go out of business & leave us to take our money to clayton etc. I leave with 1 question....Our tag agency other than complaints...has never been ROBBED! Until, after,Jodi was hired. Coincidence??

Unsure of your problem with Judy, but I can promise you I am not no Judy, nor would I ever be. I clearly asked a question that lots of people have been asking around this town. It would be any question that would arise in any business! Simply put. Sounds like a personal problem, no reason to attack anyone. Just a thought.

All ya'll are crazy for making such a big deal over a Tag Agency. How bout real issues! IF you don't like how someone runs their office, go somewhere else. What you use a tag office..a few times a year...geez! This town needs to be more concerned with its real problems.

I'm upset by this, also!! When my husband and I bought a car from someone, the day we went in to get it put into our name, Jodi was out with her sick kids. AND JUDY DIDNT KNOW HOW TO TRANSFER THE TITLE!!!! By the time Jodi got back, it was past due and we were going to owe a fee. Jodi waved the fee, since her kids were sick and Judy not knowing a thing was not our fault!! I will drive to Poteau from now on for my stuff. I'd rather drive than deal with a moron.

I know that the Talihima Police is still working on this. Someone knows knows who broke in that office and stole those hidden money bags. they all should be given a lie detector test. You do not have to give your name. Call Talihima Police or the District Attorneya Office. There is a Crime Solver reward being offered. Once A Horse Thief, Always A Horse Thief.

Just a little FYI about all of this, the day the tag office was robbed the FIRST time, Judy was no where to be seen. Jodi was the one there all day dealing with the police and left to clean up the mess. Sorry but if you aren't going to support your employees, you have no business having any in the first place. How many times has ANYONE called or went into the tag office and actually seen Judy there? My guess is not very many, if any. And what's better is many people thought JODI owned it as she was the ONLY one there with any sense at all. Some of you people need to think about what your saying. What happened while Jodi worked there could have happened to anyone. But Judy didn't take a SINGLE measure to ensure it didn't happen again. No cameras? No alarm system? I mean, after all it IS a government agency yet she couldn't care LESS about who gets hurt as long as it isn't taking money away from her. I hope that the truth in all of this comes out because I personally feel Jodi was forced out of that office for no good reason as they needed someone to put the blame on. A camera after the first incident would have led police and Judy straight to the culprit that did it the first time.

I contacted channel 5 news myself to get the story out there, and never knew Heavener and Poteau office as well was robbed until Talihina police told me when I was making the statement for talihinas office!

i am aware of both the sides. if you drive to poteau you only hurt talihina. no tag agent is rich, just ask around. the government like always leaves litle behind. jody was a good worker and helpful around her hours. because she was only employee trained to do the work. the oklahoma tax people hire agents to hire people. the agent can do as they please. if the business was doing well i am sure she could of hired help and more knowledge, just to help talihina customers. no one person is to blame here. no money would have been stole if it was put in bank daily like every other day. props to jody to do her best but no one is perfect. shame for all hurtful comments. judy may not be there but i know she stays in touch, her and jody were friends. anyone could tell u that. judy does have a heart and so does jodi. in my friend seen her there that evening taking care of the break in n broke door. the guy who fixed it can tell u that to. judy has more roles in life and agent than desk work. so lets not say stuff untrue. we should acknowledge more than what we see and hear because there is always much more to the story. never judge these workers till we lived a day in there shoes. live in peace

I don't care if it hurts Talihina to drive to Poteau. It hurts ME to go somewhere where a person doesn't know what they are doing. It's ridiculous when that person just HAPPENS to be in "charge." It's not about whether Judy is there or not. She's there, and DOESN'T KNOW WHAT SHE IS DOING. That was my point. I'll go to Poteau because they KNOW what they are doing! I have dealt with a few in Poteau that don't, and I know that is anywhere you go..not JUST tag offices. But for the most part, they know what to do in Poteau and it's much bigger so there's always people there to help. That's not anyone's fault--Talihina is just small. No one would continue to go to a restaurant that doesn't fully cook their food, or constantly messes up their order or spills things on the customers, etc. And you would continue to look for a different cashier everytime you went to Wal-Mart if the last one who checked you out didn't know what they were doing and took their sweet time. Granted they might be new at their job, but apparently Judy is not. She should know what to do instead of just sit there and smile and not say a word while Jodi took care of two or three people at a time. I know this, because I've been that second or third person, WAITING, WAITING, WAITING, while Judy SITS, SITS, SITS. Just saying!!

According to court documents, Topix.com received a certified letter notifying the company of the lawsuit, but the company has not yet responded.

The Heils filed their response earlier this month and acknowledged that the accident occurred, but denied other allegations contained in the lawsuit.

Others have sued Topix users in similar cases, including one case in Ashland concerning statements made against a local pastor.

In April, a jury in Texas awarded a couple $13.78 million in damages from a defamation suit involving Topix. During that case, the judge ordered Topix to turn over identifying information about the users, including their IP addresses. Five users were eventually identified and ordered to pay the couple. Their original lawsuit listed 178 usernames, according to news reports.

Not really worried about that because its not defamation of character its simple facts. No one here is saying anything other than she does not do her job. We aren't slandering her name. just stating what everyone in town knows.

It doesn't matter if it is a fact or not. People get on this forum and viciously attack others. It is one thing to offer constructive criticism or even a suggestion. It is quite another to get on here and bash everything about a person. I was actually at the tag office this week to get my tag. I was helped in a timely professional manner. A lot of business owners don't run their own business. They can actually do whatever they want to. It is THEIR business. That is why they hire Managers, Asst. Managers and whomever else they choose to. I do my best to spend my money in town. There are some very unique gifts at several shops in town. I can't stand giving my money to Walmart. It means nothing to them. Everyone is in too big of a hurry. I bet you have to stand in long lines when doing your holiday shopping. Do you bash them? I'm not saying that I like all the business owners because I don't. But if there is something that I like I buy it no matter how I feel about the owner. It actually pleases me not them. I was taught to "kill people with kindness". It has always worked for me and the look on the face of the person I don't care for always makes me smile on my way out of the door. Happy Holidays!

Good thing you can afford to waste your gas $$$ and your time...rather than just your time waiting in line. I'm sure it's so worth it. Some people just prefer to be rude and have something to complain about. Let's all just face the facts. I have been in a hurry before and Judy okayed it to leave it and I could pick it up later. She may not know what she is doing, but at least she finds a way to try and keep people happy. Maybe if everyone didn't go in there with a chip on their shoulder and show some kindness, you would get it in return.

BTW...you have 30 days to transfer a title..if you waited till last minute to do that, sounds like a personal problem. If you are from around here you know that there was always a note on the door, for some excuse for Jody to run her errands. So waiting till late fees are applicable sounds moronic. OTC waves fees, Jodi can't make a government decision. Oh wait,I bet Judy had to pay it out of her pocket, because OTC don't just wave fees for sick kids. If Judy knew you situation would have made the same judgement call, she is not that cold. No need for name calling!
