Council meeting tonight, Jerry Wilmore looked like someone had stuck a corn cob up his ass. As for Marcus Smith, someone needed to stick one in his mouth.(corncob that is) he don't know when to shut up !! Lets send these two home when their term is up. Unless of course someone has something on them that we can force them to resign !!!

They voted out a lot of the trouble makers last election. Maybe this next election will take care of the others. Let's just hope the new ones don't turn bad. I'm still a little leary about that new mayor.

Since certain individuals have decided utilizing Topix is appropriate to communicate information that might fall under cyber harassment we would like to provide information on recent changes within Topix on the subject of coordinating with law enforcement and recent bills signed into law by Governor Haslam. Topix, LLC (Chris Tolles, the CEO of Topix) and Attorney Generals from almost every state signed an agreement to aid in the elimination of what is considered cyberbullying on the Topix Forums. Here is an excerpt from the  signed agreement: "Topix, LLC (hereinafter“Topix ”) and the Attorneys General listed below (Tennessee Attorney General Robert E. Cooper Jr signed the document)announce measures that Topix is taking to improve public safety and to deter abusive activity on its website, Topix.com . Topix will continue to cooperate with law enforcement agencies to assist them in combating unlawful activity on its website. Topix has developed a Law Enforcement Primer that will provide contact information, including a telephone number and e-mail address, for law enforcement agencies to use in order to obtain a prompt response from Topix regarding urgent law enforcement matters. The primer will include instructions on points of contact and requirements for subpoena and search warrant requests."  This signed agreement and the two recent bills signed into law by Gov Haslam - Public Charter 992 (Senate Bill 2556 and House Bill 2641) provides law enforcement and individuals processes to follow when they are targeted by cyberbullies.

They can't do anything for. Macon county because they are elected CITY council. We need to ride out commissioners and Shelvy Linville for the county work.

The city is still in macon county and they still need to start the changes in the city first in order for the rest of them to follow. If they do something then the other might grow some balls.

The posting of such comments threating possible legal consequences for those making comments against the Lafayette City Council would also be considered cyber-bullying. DUH! There is a difference between kids harassing kids and people making comments about politicians. And why hide behind a name with a Georgia address? To give it some sort of legitamacy? It wasn't a Topix press release. Like there is someone in Georgia who gives a hoot about comments against our council members.

So who would post such comments trying to suppress the publics right to free speech. The post from "Info" was heavily researched and well written which leads to believe that it came from someone with a higher education. Although there are several from the area with the ability to compile and compose such a post, only one person with the ability would benefit by using scare tactics to stop people from commenting against him or the city council.

I think it was written by a council member who doesn't believe in your Freedom of Speech. Sorry, but as lame as the previous post might be they certainly don't qualify as cyber-bullying so stop tring to suppress comments against you or the council. If you can't stand the negative comments-then resign.

Amen Qwackers !!! I feel the same as you, it is one of the i council. I'm hoping though the people cleaning the house this last election by seating 3 NEW councilmen and A new mayor, will take care of the seats that will be coming up shortly. There are 2 still setting around that table that has to go. I will be voting against them and I will get together as many people as I can to vote against them.

People who do not want to be critized should not run for office, no matter what you do or say someone is not going to like it, that being said every one needs to pay close attention to what is happening in their community with spending and taxes, There was a resent mayors conference in Washington DC and from things that was said from our mayor, I beleive that there is a effort not just by the federal government to spend and raise taxes as much as possible, but also by local governments, I have seen this from mayors who claim to be both democrat and republican as well as independent. Do not trust what they say watch what they do.

You are about the stupidest poster ever on here. Someone posted about elected officials growing some balls and another responded directly afterward that some had balls and you dont have the sense God gave a rock to see who it was directed at. You must be one of those idiots that are educated beyond your intelligence.
