Why are full grown men and women sitting behind a computer bad mouthing others? Are you that pathetic with your lives that you must spread your opinions and bullshit through the safety of Topix? It's pathetic. Bad mouth city officials and employees like you could do better?! Everyone makes mistakes. I'm sure that not a single one of you all can point fingers without at least a dozen pointing back. I grew up in Erwin, and I am disgusted by the lack of respect that my elders have shown through nasty and rude comments on this forum. I'm 24 years old and feel as if I show entirely way more maturity than any of you all. Seriously? Grow up. You have children and young adults looking up to you all. If this is what you grew up looking after with your elders, no wonder the Town of Erwin is so screwed up. Pathetic and disgusting. Be the change you want to see in the world people. Start with our small town and branch from there. You aren't doing anybody any favors by acting this way, and you're tearing our town apart. What happened to Blue Devil Pride? I'm ashamed of every single one of you.:(

Erwin has a population of about 6100 people. Of those 6100 people, only about 10 - 15 post on here. The others who post on here are from out of town. To allow your opinion of our town to be based on the actions of a very small minority is a little presumptuous isn't it?

I doubt children are reading this site. The problem with your logic is self censorship. I have little doubt that if Mr Harris and the gang that have been running Unicoi County, could shut down this site they would in a minute.

I also believe that anyone that spoke publicly against him or his crew (prior to the indictments) did so at great peril. I believe many of the "gossips" here are accurately characterizing him past present and future. I would suffer the embarassment to have a law abiding Sheriff and justice system that served the citizenry rather than make a mockery of it. You're young and have yet to learn important lessons. Maybe someday you'll understand.

Hey "ahamed of my town" - I think you are on to something and their is veracity and iron in your words. Unfortunately, there are so many people on Topix that are full of hate and are so set in their ways - that no matter what anyone says, they will never change. So, I applaude you on your positive comments. We are all sent here for a purpose, and it is Not to bash or find fault with our fellow persons. Rather, to find the good and elevate it to the point that it becomes catchy. And before you know it - the world would be a beautiful place - with no more hate and venom. Keep believing and keep that attitude!!!
