Thought you could hide it but concerned citizens found out through the budget! Salaried persons can't get comp time last I looked under federal wage commission! Those step raises could have easily been given back to the officers and all you fat cat brass let them down! Food stamps for the rest, really, while you went and cashed your bonus check!?!? Hope you can live with yourself!!
And by the way Ed's budget has grown from 8 million dollars to 16 million dollars during his time!! Deputies that have over ten years of service are making the same pay as a new starting deputy!??? Go figure??

Since you dont know, I will type slowly so you can understand. Step raises can only be reinstated if county commissioners agree. Thats not going to happen in this economy. It has been tried several times and has been voted down. You are completly wrong. No bonuses can be given to anyone. Just because you say it, doesnt make it true. Every penny of the WCSO budget has to be accounted for.

No one is trying to hide anything. Only the Sheriff isn't allowed to get comp time. Guess you need to look under your federal wage commission a little closer! Salaried people get comp time after a certain amount of time. They cannot be worked indefinetly. When one employee gets paid comp time, all get paid comp time if they have it. Sheriff Graybeal is the only Sheriff who has made an effort to even pay comp time. All the others let the time pile up and officers didn't get paid for time they had worked.
Hey, here's an idea. Why don't you ask Mr. Ford about it. He sued the County and lost. Yep, he really wants to be fiscally conscience. Sue the County to get all he could get from the taxpayers.

Someone needs to clean up the problems at Boone. Why has Dykes sat back and allowed all of these things to go on?

How many years has Mabe served and why does a man with no kids want to be on school board. Masters and Mabe do not have kids. Why be on school board now. The only one with kids is Brinkly.
Masters and Maybe both have children. I know cause I went to school with their kids. Know your facts before you post.

How about Ford for sheriff. I think he would be ok.
He will have the county as messed up as Jonesborough. Does everyone want the whole county just like the Town of Jonesborough, all screwed up. I know the Ford family well cause I'm kin to them. They will tell you one lie then lie about that lie. Graybeal has been a great sheriff and needs to stay where he's at. He's the best we've had in a long time. And another note. Theirs more Ford's working for the sheriff's office than Graybeal's. We don't need Craig vote for Ed.

You are correct. There are more Fords than Graybeals at the WCSO. They all don't have the Ford name though so you don't think about it, but they are related. As far as I know Graybeal only has 2 relatives there. They make it sound like everyone there is related to Ed. Not true, then again when has truth ever stopped them.

We need many changes at Boone. But what we don't need is an overpriced Athletic building!!! Which board members and county commissioners are in favor of this waste of money?

If this is true and you have an SRO there, then what are they doing?? The coach should have already been investigated and charged or cleared way before the TBI was brought in.. The sheriffs office was able to get on top of those kids for firecrackers!!!

Doesn't sound like lies to me since I heard the same thing about their being Ford relatives working at the jail. Remember they have cousins, in laws, and others too. Ford will have everything messed up in the county. He hasn't done any real police work in years and even when then he wasn't good at it. He has spent the past few years overseeing maintenance work, flowers, trees, etc. for the town of Jonesborough.

Sounds like your SRO is not doing their job. I guess you didn't know it but Graybeal actually has two reserve deputies over at ROTC that should have heard something. One of them has lights in his car, a radio and his son is full time. I heard he responds to everything at Boone! Sounds like Graybeals people are dropping the ball everywhere!!

Isn't it funny how people get on here and just say something like they know everything when all they are stating is their OPINION?? Oh don't get me wrong...nothing wrong with having an opinion or even stating it but really? How do you know that davenport is "banked" by larkey?? Just because they are friends doesn't mean that's the case. And have you seen masters' bank account with your own eyes? And I know for a fact he did not push his way on boosters....he was asked he is a good businessman. He is successful at his job and provides well for his family. That bad that alone is why people want to start rumors. Jealousy. Maybe everyone should have his work ethic.

Sheriffs race should be interesting - Ford would not be any better than Graybeal as proven in past fe w years with Jonesborough Police Department. Jonesborough is overstaffed with Bob Browning and Craig Ford nearly duplicating positions not to mention Uncle Dale Ford has created position. Thanks Kelly Wolfe for tax and spending.
Commission race to be aware of as of now are the 2nd district where county employee for tax assessor (Robert MCGuire is running, 1st district Washington County Deputy is running. 7th district finds a newcomer Bryan Davenport who is said to be banked by Mark
Larkey. Davenport will likely be someone's puppet. Larkey is on county health insurance which is reason enough to vote him out. 8th district should return Steve Light one of the few commissioners with common sense.
School board 1st district should return Jack Leonard and Keith Ervin. School board 3rd district should return William Brinkley and David Hammond. Clarence Mabe and newcomer Mick Masters have no children or grandchildren in system. Masters is the one who pushed his way into Boosters 6 years ago and makes income off school sports-wonder why he is running?
County Mayor's race incumbent Dan Eldridge should easily defeat Michael Rutherford. Rutherford tries to blame Mayor for discontent surrounding County Commission when actually the blame goes to commissioners operating county government without being questioned.
Encourage people to register to vote, ask questions and look into candidates before voting.

<quoted text>These fine upstanding men are who we have influencing our students at Daniel a Boone. Adultery, alcohol, profanity, principal who could care less because he lives an hour away and close to retirement. These boys are pushing Davenport to run for commission, Masters who is banking money off the backs of students and parents, and rumored to be pushing for a Scott Saylor or Scott Utsman who will be a lapdog for Good. This crew wants the Christian men Brinkley and Hammond to go home. Davenport is trying to replace Ford or Nave. We need people who are moral and care.
You are wrong...."this crew" has nothing to do with Brinkley not on school board....he chose to not run again all by himself.

<quoted text>Aww, it all boils down and renders the same old thing, that being the the usual suspects. Throw them all in a bucket and pick one out. Chance are they will be just as crooked as the competition. When it is all said and done, your predictions are about as reliable as betting on any other game. Don't get me wrong, you are most likely correct, but it is really just the same old stuff. Each candidate has a self serving stake in it. We just vote against one over the other.
The people who are on here saying that others are adulterers, alcoholics, stealing money, hiding things and telling lies are just as bad if not worse as those you are talking about. Go to church? Ever read the bible? Look in Proverbs and see what it says about slander and the evils of a person's tongue. You will be judged by The Lord just the same as those you speak of so I wouldn't be so quick to run my mouth and act like I'm perfect if I were you dear!! Lol some people are just not very smart at all. You make a fool of yourself lol....DUHHHHHHHH
