IMO, if someone else had taken the scrap and sold it, the punishment would have been much harsher. No diversion even considered.

The fine voters of Jamestown and Fentress County voted in a convicted Felon while he butt was sitting in a prison, and then let his son preside over interpreting the LAW in our Court House?? Then look at Lincoln Davis...he has his nose up Pelosi's skirt so deep his upper lip has "TUNA" tattooed on it, yet the folks here believe his Lies about being a "conservative'

Why do you expect any different around here??

I would like to know why to vote this crook out. He has done more for the money spent than anyone else. He just don't kiss ass like some do. Are you jealous or what?

He's got my vote! He's done the best job of any one in the 15 years I've live in this county, by far! I have no ties to anyone here, and the roads have improved.

the case was decided and now the voters of Fentress County will be able to decide the
who they want for the job, not the families of the
Roysden and Evans candidates
or Gary Rogers, By the way gary Rogers didn't vote in the 2006 election, if you don't even vote
you should not have a voice.... Now that he didn't do what you wanted you think you have a voice. Take the time to go vote...or shut up!

I saw the replay of the meeting tonight on TV, no matter whose side you are on or who you are for or against, face it, those people who spoke made the County Commissioners and their lawyer look like a bunch of idiots!!! No one could answer a question they asked, but they will look into it and check it out. PLEASE!!! Give me a break. I was born at night, but not last night!!! One of the commissioners was chewing his gum so hard I thought he may have broken his jaw. Another was so scared, he could't even look up or speak, but did manage to mumble a second to adjourn. They were wanting out of there and wanting out of there bad. I think that is a shame, they don't have a clue what's going on.

Another example of embedded corruption.
Somebody needs to build more churches, or hell will over.
Another reason for others to laugh at us. Thank your local leaders, and thank them at the top of your lungs.
Or just turn your back on them like they do to you.

Butch Blevins has done a better job for the roads in this County than anyone in the past. He works right along the sidew of his crew also.I have no ties to any of these men running, But I would say in all honesty he is as honest as any of them running. Everone knows his own family started this thing.Do you think these people aren't snakes in the grass?Butch just doesn't get up and sing and pretend to be something he isn't.
