Now that is an assumption. Also, in the Moss thing they never said he was guilty. They said the insurance told them to do it. They never said he was guilty for the reason for the settlement. Please get your facts straight and quit making stuff up hoping it sticks.

Too bad you have to make that allegation from an anonymous proxy. Scared of a libel suit if they track you down?

This in not about assumptions, anonymous proxies, not fear of libel suits. This is not about Boone or Moss, it is about the Ott case and the failure of management to take proper action on a complaint of sexual harassment. It is about the Big Payday,$450,000 that went to Officer Ott. Care to comment about that issue?

Nope because unlike you I don't assume facts not in evidence.

There are many facts, you just refuse to acknowledge them. Please stop showing your ignorance, it is very unbecoming.

Nope because unlike you I am not assuming facts not in evidence and I am not trying to purposefully twist the truth.

The truth is the Officer Ott filed a SEXUAL DISCRIMININATION complaint with the Arnold Police department and she and her lawyers have NOW walked away with $450,000! The officer involved in the complaint is still working with the APD and his superior officer the Chief is still collecting $140,000+ per year to run not only the police department, but even more employees! Something is rotten and stinking up Arnold!

No, we voted that out in the last election. If you don't like it here then I hear Perryville is open with their meeting...so open that they might get sued.

That does not mean what she alleged was proven. Any lawsuit could have gone either way. This kind of behavior is not acceptable in either side of this debate. Because it was alleged is not proof.

Yeah right, insurance companies throw $450,000 at problems all the time. They would rather pay $450,000 and not fire the patrolman and the chief, than $2 Million? When $950,000 was awarded 4 people were fired and 15 were suspended, give me a break, this happens and they both keep their job? You know the city attorney said that it was like gnawing a limb off. Sorry, the patrolman and the chief need to find another line of work. The chief should not be in a supervisory position of the police department nor should he have the added responsibility of running City Hall. Why don't you ask a few more citizens what they think about forking over $450,000? I'm sure you will get a lot of negative answers.
Citizens are pleased as punch(sarcasm) because the council is allowing a liquor store to be put in right next to the school. Rocket scientists, every one of them. They have the option of not issuing the liquor license, if they haven't already done so. This way maybe the kids can stop by and pick up their beer and wine on the way home from school.

And not issuing licenses for some reasons will get the city in legal trouble. So you are proposing we risk another lawsuit while chastising the current legal bill? You don't make any sense.

State law says no liquor licenses to be issued within 100 feet of a school unless granted prior written permission from the city council. All surrounding neighbors within 100 feet should be notified in writing at least 10 days in advance. That means, no council approval, no license, per state law.

They are well past the 100 feet of the actual school building technically. Grow a brain.

It is right next door. The school grounds abut the liquor store grounds. The city council has the ability to require a 300 feet distance!

They have the ability but chose not to do that. You're grasping at straws again. Aren't you the one that yells to keep it on subject and here YOU are off topic. Guess it only applies when it suits you. Should we bring up if sitting elected officials should be forced to resin for not paying their personal property ON TIME since you are off topic yourself?

Were surrounding property owners informed in writing ten days in advance? Did they get written permission from the city council? The First Baptist Church of Arnold would be thrilled to know that Mayor Ron Counts could have swayed the council to deny this liquor license. If it hasn't already been issued he could still do so!

Ever hear of separation of church and state? Seems like you only use the constitution when it is convenient to you. Too bad you feel you have to attack people's personal lives by bringing up their religion instead of sticking to the facts. And if they would have denied the license it would have cost the city in litigation for having no reason. Thought you were against unnecessary litigation but now you seem to be for it by your response. Make up your mind. Flip flop, no wonder the voters fired you in the last election by voting you out.

Just stating facts. If you belonged to First Baptist Church in Arnold, you would be upset that a liquor store will be located right next door to a school. You would also not like it if it could be prevented and the city council failed to do so. Imaginary threats of litigation is something that Mr. Sweeney uses to keep his minions in line.
