One of the old commissioners has called a meeting for this Thursday at 5 pm at the rec dept.. Everybody can and should attend if you are interested in how they are taking care of county business at our expense. The new commissioners should be there.so we can meet them and encourage them to do what is right for the county and not just the elite few.

Maybe they will tell us about the cars with water in the motor and transmission....and all the overbudget spending during the last three months of the last sheriffs administration....Tell us how much waste was taking place during the fall quarter after the election....(personal purchases with Govt. monies, vehicle destruction, etc...)

Everybody pretty well knows about the destruction and waste by the previous sheriff and his staff. Compare with the other counties what we are paying our accountants, lawyers, auditors, economic developers-fuel providers---we need accountability for services rendered.
Right we got rid of him

What makes you think the commissioners are going to change anything? Just like Hart was taking care of Padget so he could get free work at his personal house. Alice strong was the only one who would stand up and confront hart about the shadey deals he and padget was making . The rest just went along with them.Wake the hell up telfair!

There's no Larie Lane in Lumber City where alice lives so you must be referring to someone else.

It seems the county commissioners apple cart is getting upset since Spires was not elected chairman like he and Mark Smith had thought would happen thanks to Giddens and Moore basing their votes on qualifications instead of going along with the good ole boys. Pray for them to continue to work for us instead of some few corrupt self serving individuals. More people need to come to these meetings and see the commissioners tend to our business/money. Don't let Smith run you off like he did Ms. Crisp-told her he didn't have time to listen to her and she could hit the door! She wasn't even talking to him. That kind of behavior from a commissioner should have zero-tolerance and that person should be replaced. Who would want a to elect someone to a public office that has anger-management problems. Wonder who he is really working for?
no problems

He didn't tell her to hit the door. If she has something intellegent to say she should say it at the appropriate time. Not in the middle of the meeting when the elected officials are doing business.

Also, i heard they punched holes in the new truck that he was driving so that it leaks water when it rains.??? Isn't that criminal, plus putting over 100,000 miles on that truck ,mostly personal at county expense and gas. trips to port caneveral, on xruises and hauling civilians in govt. vehisles on vacation....I heard that woman broke up with him after he got beat, and went back to her real boyfriend she was seeing??? Maybe she should be liable for some of that money that was personal expenses.????

Yea old John Boy and Patsy were scamming the county with the bonding agency. He had about 30-40 inmates
mostly on non violent charges in the Coffee County Jail. He would get their bonds kicked up high enough that when they did make bond there was room for a kick back percentage on the bondsman's fee. It was costing the county about 40-50 thousand dollars a month. Then I heard he skimmed some kilos of cartel cocaine in that big bust...you know the one with O in the paper cheesin with the kilos. The rumors was he had a guy from Scotland selling it for him. I heard he ordered a whole lifetime's worth of clothes before he left. I also heard he cleaned out the fire
arms evidence. He had all sorts of scams going. 100,000 miles is ridiculous for the age of that truck. The question is will he get his due causing the property taxes to go up. Well now that is busted up. I heard he sent several relatives to the police
academy at 6000.00 a piece and they never even worked
for Telfair. What's that song Go Johnny Go ... to the
slammer.

SHE should be held accountable as well. She knew what he (what they)were doing was not right.
