I personally think that Gene Hargis should run for sheriff and Ronnie Davis should be his chief deputy. I have known both men for a long time. I have known Bo for a long time too. I think Bo has done a good job as sheriff however I think that it is time for a younger generation with some fresh ideas to run the sheriffs office.
You are also nuts. Hargis would promise you the moon and Davis would steal it before you got.

i would like to know how chad johnson can work for the sheriff but he runs around telling everyone that he works for the ATF. i know a guy that he talked to the other day and he told the guy that he was going to put him in federal prison for buying some cold pills. since when was it a crime to have a cold?
He works for the county and the feds, and he has proven that he will send people to federal prison for a long time however he is a bit of a smart ass. As for the guy that was buying the cold pills he was probably using them to cook meth.

First of all Hargis is not even running for sheriff and Johnson did clean up S.P. through his involvement with the ATF. We need a sheriff like Bo that has a good working relationship with the Feds. We dont need a sheriff that is only going to be investigated by them. Our court system in Jasper is a joke and it starts with the district attorneys office and ends with the judge. Its sad when you can be convicted of murdering three kids and the judge dont have the balls to even send you to prison. There needs to be a topic on how big of a coward Rusty Graham is. The police can only arrest people, only the judge can send them to prison where most of them belong.

lets do the math grad 83, parker recieved around 1500 votes in primary,webb recieved around 1900 votes in primary. now burnett recieved around 900 votes in primary. in the general election webb did not reach 1500 and burnett wins by landslide.question is where did those 1900 votes go, i guess they voted back in their party since they had the weaker of the two democrats in general!hmmmmm! as far as loyd hood and parker this is the story on that, hood wanted parker to testify (lie)under oath so more charges could be placed on a certain man that was already charged with theft of vehicles and parts back in the 80's(when all this took place, 1981). and by the way parker was relieved of his duties then for not cooperating(or being honest).but i guess you kept up with this while you were in high school?
Why does anyone give a crap about the last election....The point that I can see in what you wrote was that (Bo won by a landslide).

Hey Total Concern,
I noticed that you have not been on here running your mouth in a few days. I was wondering if the heat was getting to you. Maybe you looked at how all of the people judged your comments and thought that you would stop making a fool of yourself.
Have a Happy New Year!!!!!
Well folks another day is all most over and still no comments from Total Concern. I guess they are not concerned anymore. Hope you are well I was just feeling a little concerned about you.

I thought they got investigated by the TBI when they got caught with the Petty girl up in Gatlinburg. Is that not when he fired Rodney?
The city fired Rodney because the TBI was investigating him for a domestic violence charge that Petty had filled against him. Later Petty dropped the charges and her and Rodney got back together. Ronnie hired Rodney back at WPD as soon as he had a chance, because word on the street was that if the TBI arrested Rodney then he was going to tell all and take Ronnie down with him. Since then Ronnie has gave Rodney everything that he wants including promotions and new cars. I'm sorry but they dont have anybody fooled!!!!

actually as i recall, and i recall it well, hood tried to get parker to testify against a certain individual who was in court for stripping cars. parker refused to lie under oath and say that he had hard proof that the person was stripping cars. since parker didn't have hard evidence, he refused to testify. therefore hood fired him. he lost his job, his benefits and everything because he wouldn't send a man to the pen.

so are you trying to say that Parker is running again or not because if not im tired of hearing about him. as far as I know so far only two men are running for sheriff and thats who this topic is about. quit dreaming about all these other people running like Parker and Hargis and Pumpy. When they say they are running then we can talk about them.

!!!!!GO BO!!!!!

My name is not on the ballot because the man that I want as Sheriff is already on the ballot and his name is Bo. And by the way Mr. Ronnie Davis that is no way to talk to people. You should not tell people to "shut the hell up". You as a public official have to protect people's rights to freedom of speech. The problem is that I tell the truth and yes it does hurt, but the people have to be informed. This is the new age form of democracy in which people get to use the internet to express their opinion and share their views with the rest of the world. Topix allows every voice to be heard. Im glad to hear that you are still out there. Keep in touch.

Suspects are from Bledsoe, Grundy, Hamilton, Marion, and Sequatchie Counties. Charges include conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine and to acquire and possess pseudoephedrine, a precursor chemical used to manufacture methamphetamine, as well as numerous substantive counts stemming from the manufacture and distribution of methamphetamine, the illegal possession of firearms, and maintaining “drug houses,” located in various local counties in Tennessee.
Investigators began arresting the defendants Thursday morning and they will appear before U.S. Magistrate Judge William B. Mitchell Carter Thursday afternoon and Friday morning.
The indictment alleges that the conspiracy began in January 2007, and continued through December 2009. Documents filed with the courts indicate that two residences in Whitwell, Tennessee, and others in Dunlap, Tracy City, and Soddy-Daisy, Tennessee, were maintained for the manufacture, distribution, and use of methamphetamine.
If convicted, these defendants each face a statutory mandatory minimum of ten to twenty years (depending on prior criminal history) up to life imprisonment on the conspiracy counts alone, as well as a $4,000,000 fine, and a minimum of five years of supervised release.
This indictment is the result of an investigation led by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and assisted by the Marion, Sequatchie, Bledsoe, and Grundy County Sheriff’s Departments, the Tennessee Methamphetamine Task Force, and the Tennessee Bureau of
Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Scott Winne will represent the United States.

Well mountain man looks like if you read the above post you will get the answer to your question. I bet one of your friends got arrested in the bunch, was it Osama or Stick or Bucky. Now them are some good nick names.

Im glad to see that Bo and the sheriffs department is continuing to work with the feds to clean up the rest of the county. Im sure all those meth makers will get alot of time in prison!!!!

im sure that davis is a little concerned about them getting bob rollins. they use to be in the car stripping buisiness back in the day. they had a little falling out over davis's wife a few years ago but davis still protected bob. why do you think bob never got busted when he lived next to the fire hall in whitwell. they were never able to bust him until he moved to mullins cove.
one more vote for BO

I will be voting for Bo Burnett for sheriff every time I open up the news paper I read about his officers arresting people for dealing drugs and for breaking into houses or stealing stuff. All of the police have a hard job. I dont know the Davis man other than what I read on here, but it sounds like alot of people dont like him. I have not seen one good comment about the Davis man on here.

THE ENTIRE CITY GOVERNMENT IN WHITWELL IS SCREWED UP. EVERY WEEK WE GET A LETTER FROM THEM SAYING THAT OUR WATER CONTAINS HIGH LEVELS OF SOME BAD CHEMICAL, BUT YOU WOULD HAVE TO DRINK IT FOR 100 YEARS BEFORE IT AFFECTS YOUR BODY, IM THINKING THEN WHY SEND THE LETTER. OUR COMMISIONERS ARE A JOKE TOO, THE STATE IS MAKING TWO OF THEM STEP DOWN BECAUSE THEY WORK FOR THE POLICE DEPARTMENT. I KNOW MR. NUNLEY ALREADY STEPPED DOWN AND THEY LET HIS GIRLFRIEND TAKE HIS PLACE. BILL HARRIS IS THE OTHER ONE BUT HE WONT STEP DOWN AND FROM WHAT I HEAR HE IS SUEING THE CITY AND THE STATE FOR FORCING HIM TO STEP DOWN. A FEW YEARS AGO THEY FIRED RODNEY EASTERLY BECAUSE HE WAS BEING INVESTIGATED FOR BEATING UP A YOUNG LADY. NOW RONNIE DAVIS HAS HIRED HIM BACK AND MADE HIM A SUPERVISOR. WE DONATED MONEY TO THE WHITWELL POLICE CHRISTMAS FUND THINKING IT WOULD HELP FAMILYS IN THE CITY OF WHITWELL. NOW I HAVE FOUND OUT THAT RONNIE DAVIS USED THE MONEY TO HELP FAMILYS ALL OVER THE COUNTY. I GUESS HE USED OUR DONATED MONEY AS A WAY TO BY VOTES. I ALSO DONATED MONEY TO THE SHERIFF'S CHRISTMAS FUND WHICH IS MEANT TO HELP PEOPLE THAT LIVE IN THE COUNTY. I KNOW OF AT LEAT TWO FAMILYS THAT LIVE IN THE COUNTY THAT GOT STUFF FROM THE SHERIFF AND FROM RONNIE DAVIS. WHY IF THERE IS SOMEONE ALREADY HELPING THE COUNTY PEOPLE DOES RONNIE DAVIS WANT TO HELP THEM TOO. I KNOW OF FAMILYS IN THE CITY THAT ASKED FOR HELP BUT DID NOT RECIEVE ANY....I GUESS THEIR FAMILY DOES NOT CARY ENOUGH VOTES!!!! I DONT KNOW ANY GOOD REASON TO VOTE FOR SOMEONE THAT HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE CITY OF WHITWELL.

Hey FED UP

That is awfull if Davis used the christmas toy money to get votes, what other reason would he have for helping families that live in the county and not helping some in the city. That is sad. Out of all the bull crap that is talked about on this topic this is serious. We joke about the stolen car stuff and get a good laugh out of the people saying that he is goin to prison and that he has been writing bad checks and that he needs a new tooth brush. People this is serous. This is where I draw the line. Hmmm using poor inocent kids as a way to try and get votes. What in the hell is this world coming to.
