I would like to leave a comment about our new town manager. Has anyone ever felt like you are being stalked? Or just being watched by someone so nosey? Hello, I am a concerned citizen here in walnut cove and im wondering how a town manger like Homer Dearmin can get away with all the stuff he is doing in this town. One thing is the firing Barry Conaway. Secondly, the rewriting of the personel policy and the board policy which he is trying to state that no one but him and the mayor being the only ones to have say so on what gos on in this town. This is not Russia, but America, where citizens are involved in the democratic process. He is trying his best to get rid of the good people from the town hall and get his people in to run a crooked outfit.

I woud like to post another blog which has good info:
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >
I know that a lot of these people would like for Barry, his wife, friends, and supporters to shut up and quit talking about his unjustified firing, so that perpetrators can get over their guilt.

As with any injustice, the victim should not shut up and go along with the system, but should continue to bring their injustice to the table every chance that they can regardless of what these few bad apples are saying.

Every since this new Town Manager Homer Dearmin has come to Walnut Cove, he has done nothing good for this town. He has gotten rid of anyone he hasn't liked and hired his friends in their places. It has not stopped with Barry. Anybody that has been associated with Barry has been gotten rid of. You cannot run a town on cronyism. Homer is no good for this town.

I would like to encourage everyone with any common decency in Walnut Cove to keep bringing the injustice of Barry Conaway's firing to the table until Homer answers why he fired such an outstanding Police Officer with 15 years of impeccable service. Sharon keep standing up against this corruption. We are supporting you and Barry all the way.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>>

I know of another situation that has occured with another person which is a previous employee of the town hall that was done very dirty. His name being slandered in this town. That is very unprofessonal of our town manager. But things will come out of the closet real soon. I hope that everyone opens there eyes and sees whats going on in this town. All of us are being fooled of their crookedness.

Reply to Citizen Cove. Thank you for stating your opinion. That still doesn't explain why Barry was fired, and why Homer has and continues to harass people associated with Barry or people whom he doesn't like.
We live in a democracy in which government officals are accountable to the citizens that they represent. Government officals are to look out for the well being of "ALL" citizens regardless if they like them or not. If you only look out for your sex, that is called sexism. If you only look out for your race, that is called racism. If you only look out for your friends, that is called cronyism. Allow me to regress. We live in a democratic country where government officals are accountable to the citizens.
In this democratic society, we also have the First Amendment of the constitution that guarantees the citizens the use of free speech to criticize government officals without any reprisals. With all the changes that your lovely town manager has done to the policies of town hall meetings by limiting each person to 3 minutes and a total of 15 for all persons, he will soon try to override the First Amendment of the Constitution.
I know that a lot of people would like to shut me up and everyone else demanding answers, but I will not shut up until the truth comes out. I have that right, so does every other American citizen. As long as I have breath in my lungs, I will talk to everyone that I meet of the injustice that has happened in Walnut Cove.

I would just like to express my feelings about Barry Conaway. Several years ago, Walnut Cove experienced a horrible ice storm and the power went out in most of the town. Barry personally went around to every elderly persons home to make sure that they had heat and were OK. I saw this with my own two eyes. He didn't have to do this, but this is the character of Barry Conaway. Since this new town manager has come onboard, Homer has attempted to sway everyone's opinion about Barry Conaway's character. I haven't seen Homer or any of his cronies go above and beyond the call of duty as I and numerous other citizens have seen Barry Conaway do on repeated occurrences.

I must beg to differ with the individual...er...individuals, I guess if any of you are naieve enough to believe that more than one person wrote the above posts.

Sharon Conaway and her husband Barry have been on a mission to attack Homer Dearmin since Barry was removed from his postion--a position which he used to carry out his own sick power trip, and hoped to use it as a springboard for even more power when he ran for Sherriff. Fortunately, the people of Stokes County knew better.

Conaway was a power-hungry police chief who only wanted to have control. It was not about the people of Walnut Cove. It was about Barry, and how Barry was perceived.

Since his removal from power, this Town has seen the beginnings of a transformation. I have seen police officers out talking to people. I have seen drug arrests, DWI arrests, and an overall better image for our police department.

As for Homer Dearmin, I have no complaints either. For years, there has been no progress in this Town, and now look at the things that have happened over the past few years that he has been here. The new library is open, the park is cleaned up, the old tennis courts are cleaned up, main street looks much better, and so does town hall. Walnut Cove is finally moving forward, yet there are some who want to join with Barry and Sharon to halt this progress just to get revenge for Homer punishing Barry's stupidity and arrogance.

Barry Conaway is no different a person than he was in high school. He is a self-centered bully, and a narcissist. It is time for the citizens of this town to stand up against them. For years, many have been afraid to because he wore a badge. We don't have to worry about that anymore. Don't pity someone who ultimately let his thirst for power and control override his intelligence.

To Beg to Differ,
People are aloud to state what they have experianced living in this town. You do not know if these people are lying or stating facts. So you do not have the right to judge the people writting or reading and agreeing with each post. I have lived in this town for 15 years now and I myself have seen and experianced Mr. Conway help others and myself. These new WCP only look out for themselves. As for Mr Dearmin and HIS wife who is a school teacher- I say this. They both need to learn how to treat people better especially since he is the Town mgr and she is a teacher. This town when I 1st moved here was nothing due to the person that owned the majority of land (Mr DeHart). And after his passing things started to change i.e. more businesses creating more cash flow and jobs. I have seen plenty of arrest over my 15 yrs here so you can not give the glory to Mr Dearmin and the revamped PD. As for what Mr Conway was allowed to do or not do, all of us have a boss! With that being said, the same one that held Mr Conway back is the same one that brought Mr Dearmin in and had Mr Conway removed. I can back what I say with facts.. Can you? Granted this town is SLOWLY looking better but dont you think if Mr Conway was allowed to freely do his job it would have been done years ago?

Also;
I have sat here tonight after being shown this board and am disgusted that you would say just because some people agree that they are one of the same. I have started from the beginning and read to the end tonight everyones comments and opinions. It seems to me if you done the same without stopping u would see what I did.. Most of the posters agree of it being wrong. Also you would notice that there is atleast 2 posters out there trying to look like many. They keep going outside the WC area and returning from 3 different towns. And then posing using various names but yet repeating the same thing over and over. Hmm could this be a Town mgr and his wife maybe? And just so you know what caught my eye, Mr Dearmin and several Masonic members who shared the one same thought was all coming in from the Dunn area to post. Go back and check if u want. The same could be said about you (Beg To Differ
Newton Grove, NC) are you living here in WC?
Anyways, Im not saying they are doing that, just it looks more like it than what YOU pointed out to us
"naieve enough to believe that more than one person wrote the above posts".
I have way more than I would be able to write here tonight. After reading what all should be WC residents wrote, I could go on forever. Mostly due to people judging others based on opinions and not facts.

Puhlease! Are we still talking about Barry Conawhat and his bunch of sour grapes? I think it is about time that these people acknowledge that Barry made some bad decisions, and that Homer did what he had to do. I think most of us in Walnut cove are tired of hashing this out. What's more, the things that are happening in town are positive. Walnut Cove is improving. and these people need to move on with their lives.

You're going to have corruption no matter where ya go especially if the people do not care enough to attend their Town Meeting.

Don't forget, those in power feel as long as we think a problem they created only effects us, we think what can one person do.. However rest assured if something effects you, it will effect others..

There is nothing good going for this town. Look at king. Twice as big as walnut cove. Our town manager sets out new trash cans and benches along the sidewalk and people thnks he is a god or something. Well, yall need to dig a little deeper to find out how Homer really is. I know alot about Homer and like i said, it will be brought out real soon and there is going to be alot of disappointed people.

If I wanted to live in a town twice as big as Walnut Cove, I'd move to King. Maybe benches and trash cans seem like small potatoes, but by playing up the small town feel and making Walnut Cove more charming, we could draw in people to shop and eat in Walnut Cove... people like me who dislike King.

You might be speaking on your behalf but you do noty speak for everyone. Like I said I started reading the forum about 6pm and finished at 1am. That was going to the very beginning and reading EVERY topic on here and who wrote them. Its not that fact about we keep bringing Mr conways name up all the time. But the fact of when some people want to keep rubbing his name in the mud. Its NOT right and people WILL stand up and say so. That should be said about any citizen who is being talked about and treated unfairly. And Im sorry but Mr Dearmin and some of his people do this. Mr Conway was never a problem before and had been talked about with the upmost respect until all this happened. My opinion is if you have any problem with the PD or how it was ran, then what have YOU done to feel that way? The only officer that has changed down there was Mr Conway, the rest of them was there before and after his firing. And beg to Differ Im sorry if you do not like him, but dont let your opinions over rule the FACTS about everything.

I will say this about the IP address. You can say that if you would like and believe it as well. An IP address will rotate but in your area, it will not bounce from here to SC and other outside areas. Dial-up is the one that does this.. So if that was the case, when you make a phone call does it change where you are calling from? NOPE.. So why does some peoples never change and some do? When I got on tthe Forum asked the ZIP code in which I was from, and guess what, it shows WC everytime I post.

Back to subject
Beg to Differ,
Im sorry you do not agree with anything I have wrote. But mine was merely repeating facts not my opinion. I still find it disrespectful you would call your neighbors in this town both stupid and naieve just because they dont agree with you. I guess you are above all of us!

I agree. 52 does make a big difference, but how come we have all these historic buildings here in town and nothing is being done about them? Just like the house on second street that Barry has tried his best to turn it into the police station but the town manager wants to rebuild the junky town hall down there and waste all the tax payers money. That place is more than a dump. It aint worth fixing up at all. Then yall say our town manager is doing good things. That makes me sick to my stomach...

Barry for president! Barry for king! Barry for god! This is the problem. This Barry worship is ridiculous, and is indicative of the problem at hand-these people-all five of them-idolize and worship this man, and THEY are the ones who refuse to look at the FACTS. Look at the report released about Barry's termination. Look at the last issue of the Walnut Cove Connection that discusses the huge payout given to Barry backin the 1990s. By whom was it given? Lora Carter, town clerk at the time, and now one of our town commissioners, who is Barry's staunchest defender on the town council. Coincidence?

Still doesnt say why Barry was fired. There aint a good enough reason to tell everyone why he was terminated. Probably he knew stuff on Homer, so he couldn't bare working with someone that he had to watch his back all the time. Its not a secret anymore. People are trying to compare Barry with Homer. Homer is the one who runs the town to were Barry is nothing but a police officer. Of couse he cant do the things Homer is doing cause he dont have the authority to do so. If he did, things would have been better years ago.

The fact is that when I had a different internet service provider (not IP address, I S P) it said I was in another state. When I switched to roadrunner service it started showing up as Walnut Cove. I even wrote tech support before I switched ISP's and THEY told me it was my ISP's location.
