oh me oh my what shall we do, the good ole boys are at it again. Fletcher should allow Asheville to annex them and run the city properly. Hey, ain't that why Fletcher wants to annex cause they can't run a city properly. Duh. just lies.

Them flecher poleeze have the rite to take them guns home fer there awn use thats what we do hyur in Rellerferd Cownty.

Whenever theys a bugglery or robery we catch the crimnulls an confuscate their stole goods for ourselfs. Our moto is 'We love Snap On tools, spashally when their warm.' Then we send the felluns off for a few months an whin they come back we put them back to work at harred laber to pay restatooshun. And our faveritt jugje Laura Snuffdip Powell orders that the restatushun be paid to us and if theirs any change left over it goes to the the crime victums at the botom of the totum poll.

Its a groth industry. Ever poleeze dept an sherrif shudd trie it out.

Perhaps a door to door search should be ordered throughout the town of Fletcher.

Mayberry, NC at its "BEST"!!!!

LAWSUITS, LAWSUIT, LAWSUITS, HIGH PERSONNEL TURN OVER, MISSING/STOLEN TOWN PROPERTY, ETC, ETC, ETC.

Personally, I would like to see Chief Moss return and develop anther department similar to the one between 1996-2004.
Oh well, that is nothing more than the wishful thinking one taxpayer. Moss would never offer his professional services to this town again. They had one chance with him and sadly placed all their trust in another and "LOST"
.
WONDER WHAT THE NEXT 5 YEARS WILL BRING???

What will the next police chief bring? Does George have his mark on him too. Get rid of George and pray the town picks a solid guy for the job.

I'm not so sure that I agree with your suggestion. History has proven the town isn't capable of selecting a chief. The last two were selected by town officials and look at what we got.

Seems as though the town council and manager should back off and put their trust in a group of professional police managers both line and ranking.

I'm not saying that Erwin should be involved in the process, certainly though there are a few good officers both active and retired that are more than capable of making the selection hands down.

But as in the past to many persons with no knowledge whatsoever were involved in and made the final selection. Needless to say, it has come home to haunt them on numerous occasions not to mention the $$$$$$$$$$ it has cost the town taxpayers todate.

I'm sure each of them learned for the previous process, but the big question is will they use the knowledge gained.

Personally, I can't wait for the results. Number "3" should be a winner.

The late L. A. White has a private road running through an industrial park in Fletcher. The idiot cops came out and set up radar there to catch speeders. L. A. went out and ran the Keystone Kops off.

Sorry to be the one to tell you but the street in question is part of the town street system from Cane Creek to Wilsonart.
True the late L.A. White estate still owns some of the railroad spur, a few of the buildings and the road from Wilsonart to the dead end.

Even though the portion that the estate owns is private it is consider by state law a (PVA) public vehicluar area an subjcet to about 30 or so statutes related to vehicle code enforcement.

Not disputing your word but, Mr. White never had the authority to run anyone off this particular street. He gave up that right when he sold the property and opened it up to the public.

Be careful they will absolutely write you a ticket for speeding.
