I love our Sheriff, Mr. Craft. He is a great and honest man who is trying to clean up the community of drugs that are destroying families. I have known the man for years. He is a man of faith and compassion. I along with all of you hear rumours all of the time. That's exactly what they are. Rumours! I have lived in many different parishes with elcted sheriffs. Mr. Craft is the perfect exapmle of what a good sheriff should be! He will always have my vote and I hope that he remains in office for the entirety of my life!
Not all of it is rumor. How come he has no control over his deputies and their illegal use of authority. Sam Craft either doesn't have a clue or is part of the problem.

He failed to help me when I needed him most. He turned his back and walked off - he acted ignorant to the matter.

Is office is guilty of false arrests, intimidation techniques, defamation of characters, maintaining false records, refusal of public records, and participating in conspiracies to commit felonies all for the good ole boy politics.

He is either clueless or part of the problem.

That big black dog that runs loose in front of his road - and tries to bit everyone - will probably make a better sheriff than him. He sure has more balls than him. Isn't there a lease law?

I bet I can guess who will get the bid .......... You give up ........ Pat Williams !!!!!!
Yes he will, if he is low bidder. It is a Competitive State Bid Law project. If he is not low bidder, he will not get it. Very simple. It bid once before, was out of budget, and is being redesigned and will rebid later this month.

Do you remember when we had to vote for the law bill so he could keep paying his deputies and also the building of a new shierffs office?
If so where is the pay for the new deputies and when is the construction going to start on the new office ?
Yeah he's doing a bang up job, can't blame him for not following up on charges for a local doctor stealing one of his patrol cars, and then only firing the deputy after he was charged with a sex crime and just when is that case going to hit the court ?
Yeah he's a real fine shierffs !!
you are full of crap. he didn't fire the deputy, the deputy resigned.you haven't heard anymore about this because the city hasn't turned in the report to the da's office for prosecution. wonder why?

Randall has to play the good ole boy system if he wants to keep his job. After all, he works in Pete Dowden's district - King Good Ole Boy - and he gets paid by the Sheriff's Office.

Okay, I just left City Hall and there's a notice posted on the door about the Civil Service Board. It's printed on official CSB letterhead and it lists the 5 members of the board: the fire rep, the police rep, and the 3 civilian reps: Robert Blow, Ryan Keeton, and Sherri Wilhelm.

Have I been under a rock or something. Who is Sherri Wilhelm, and when did she go on the board? She apparently holds the seat that Christina Lord once had. When did Chrisina resign, and why didn't it make any news reports?

Or did I just wake up?

Sherri Wilhelm is one of Roberts staunch supporters. Was at every thing he did when he ran and will do what ever Robert wants. So we have this majority of the board now that Rose controls, so if I was a fire or police officer I would not buck the system or lest you will be fired! There are many good fireman that are leaving or retiriing early due to their fire chief. I had one of the captains tell me that he was told by the chief that if he did not write up his men or women at least once per week then he wasn't doing his job! Even though there wasn't anything to write them up about... what have we let happen?

Was there ever any news coverage about Wilhelm replacing Lord? Or about Lord resigning?

It's pretty amazing that the CSB members are appointed for a fixed-length term, regardless of who the administration in City Hall is, yet in the course of 3 years, Rose has managed to replace every member of the board, some of them twice!

And it's pretty disgusting that the City Hall PR machine can continuously keep Dowd and Elliott in the public eye but there's no PR at all when Rose does something under the radar.

Can you say "transparency," Mr. Mayor?

Considering the last 3 either broke the law in some fashion, or got fired from the PD, I'd say that is a stretch to put it all on just Rose.

I love the people of Leesville.
I love how you can find a family who loves you just by walking into a Church on Sunday. Most Church families in the parish are sincere and care for you personally.
Making a friend in Leesville is a friend for life. When you are hurting - they go through the hurt with you.
Leesville folks are there for their community and for the military in times of need - raising money and holding events for a military family's child just as quickly as for a local born.
Most folks in Leesville know the meaning of "Honor" and have since they were kids.
"Leesville ain't perfect"; but sure does a good job at identifying those things that need fixing then working on the one they can.
Leesville is "the people of Leesville" - and the people of Leesville are 2nd to none in the world.
Leesville adopts the military families who come to her via Ft. Polk and then choose to stay. Leesville isn't perfect - but it sure is wonderful.
Yup, I love the people of Leesville.

okay I waited two weeks but no one is going to cover it, CHEIF HICKMAN reinstated on 19 June 2013 what,s up with that. ooh..ooh I know that they also fired him on 20 June 2013 with another bogus attempt to it right and they back dated the firing to June 2102 while the appeal was still in progress in Lake Charles can you say Law Suit on the city and Bobby Rose!!!! lmao Good luck Chief Hickman seems as the city can not get it right even with THREE ATTYS on this case. Have much more of the tax payer money is the city council going to let this A$$ Hole spend on this??? What a poor choice for a so called leader of the city.

The announcement for who won the contract should be announced soon if I'm not mistaken.

I haven't heard of any deputies not being paid. Have you?

For some reason when you say he failed you when you needed him most I have a feeling that you broke the LAW and expected bc you knew him that you would get out of it free and clear!
