In a reply to "not bill". Rest assured sir or mam that most of the folks at the Sheriff's Office would much rather have Jim Childers in office. Bruce Hosey has burned a lot a bridges with deputies that will never be repaired and as for the "future chief" no one has any respect for him, he is a school yard bully and a joke.

I agree with you Cop Dude that Mr Childers is the man for the job. But be that as it may, I am getting just a little tired of reading about how the S.O. had no integrity under a former administration and has no integrity now. I will be the first to agree that we have problems within the S.O., you have no argument there. But I am here to tell you that there are many Deputies who do their job and do it well. I will also say that there are many, myself included, who take pride in their work. I may not agree with how things are done sometimes, but I don't get paid to do that, I was hired to do a job and to do it to the best of my ability. I love what I do, I can't imagine any other line of work. So please do not generalize and say that the Sheriffs Department has no integrity, for in doing so you are insulting some very good and decent men and women. You know, there are some within the Sheriffs Department who need to realize that if they are going to gain the respect of the public they need to first respect themselves and each other. And I will go so far as saying that for our Sheriffs Department to begin changing directions we need to be a disciplined organization, with accountability and responsibility, not an organization (and I am speaking of the Deputies) who fight change and have factions pulling every direction. You know something else? Like it or not, a police department, be it Sheriffs Department, City P.D. or State Police are all para-military organizations, and are not democracies, some individuals tend to forget that. You don't have a vote, votes are for elections, you have orders, unless the orders are illegal, follow them. Having said all that, I have stated before, who I believe to be the best man for the job, but I will still do my job to the best of my ability no matter who is elected, and there are many more who feel the same way I do, because we do have integrity and a strong morale character. Cop Dude, I understand what you were saying, along with some others who have stated much the same thing as you, and I do not mean to be attacking you. I am only asking that some very good people not be degraded and generalized as having no integrity. Be safe.

Oh, and one more thing, and this is directed at "not bill". There are few within the S.O. who are supporting the Hosey camp. And there are many who do work, for you to insinuate otherwise, confirms to me that you are not familier with the Sheriffs Department.

Now for another point, Mr Childers and Mr Hosey are running for office. Not their wives or their children. Wives and children should be left out of this in my opinion. I feel like an attack on either is in poor taste and honestly is a pretty low blow. I know how I feel about this. Say what you want about me and I can deal with it, I have thick skin. But attack my wife or children and you will have a fight on your hands.

Well, if Mr. Hosey gets elected, who is going to run the Department, him or his wife? Something to think about! Heard she kind of runs the show now, or thinks she does. Why would anyone think that would change?
One hell of a scary thought, hummmmmmmm.

Damn, I would have never guessed that! Wonder if the "new chief" had anything to do with that? I heard he is at the beach bike rally this weekend, him being the big biker he thinks he is. She there also? Humm, something to ponder on.
You are right on the money, NEWSFLASH!

A friend of mine recently got stopped by the Quinwood Police Department for a speeding violation. He was issued a citation by the officer and was advised that if he would pay the citation "now", it would not go thur DMV nor would his license be accessed any points for the violation.
I have researched the law reference to radar usage in WV and State Code cites Chapter 8-1-3 which classifies municipal corporations within the State. If one applies this to the radar usage chapter of State Code, 17C-6-7, if the population of Quinwood is less than 2000 residents, it would then be a class IV village or town. Therefore, radar usage within Quinwood would not be allowed. Only class I, II, and III municipal corporations may use radar as a means a detecting speed employing such devices.
The Quinwood Police Department is staffed by a few officers, two of which are Mr. Hosey and his chief, Mr. Martin. If votes from the citizens of this fine County are what Mr. Hosey needs to become the next Sheriff of Greenbrier County, then, he along with his future Chief Deputy, should not be issuing citations to each of them who pass thru the Town of Quinwood.
My vote goes to Jim Childers for Greenbrier County Sheriff, and if the rest of the populace knows what is best for Greenbrier County, when they will vote the same.
I plan of looking more indepth to this matter in order to see if indeed any legal procedures have bee violated.

Keeping her mouth closed isn't something she has ever been able to do,always running off at the mouth but doesn't want any speaking of her. If she could keep her mouth and legs closed she would be alright. No one likes her for long I have noticed throughout the years. She pulls him DOWN. He needs to file if he hasn't already.

Now, While I do support MR. Childers, I have to admit I am somewhat concerned about his appointment of a Chief as well. He stated to me that Mr. Donnie Hedrick is in line for the job. I hope we can all remember that Mr. Hedrick was FIRED from the State Police. Furthermore, the reason involved underage young ladys. Also, as I research this site I see MR. Hedrick making jokes in regard to domestic violence and battered women.

You are Right, CHILDERS in 09! He is the man for the job. You see, I have lived here for almost 35 years. I have observed Mr. Childers honesty, loyalty, and integrity for a long time. I have never known of Jim to mess around with Bill Goodwins wife, or, run around on his late wife, or, Ms. Neathawk. Hell, I have never seen him drunk on whiskey at the elks lodge. Seriously, I am not a Hosey/Martin supporter. But, Jim Childers is not the guy that a couple of you present. Below, I have given you some references"

well i can tell u without a shadow of a doubt DONNIE HEDRICK will not & i repeat WILL NOT be jim childers chief deputy . not going into details but just TRUST me on this one . the job will be posted and resumes will be taken . but it will most likely be from outside the dept. which is what it needs to be . but mr. hedrick was not fired due to UNDERAGE girls either u should do a lil more research

in response to support who , i guess u want a SAINT in the office of the sheriff, well guess what there are none . nobody is perfect but the things ur talking about doesnt effect the way he can run the dept. show me an elk that doesnt drink i lil bit now & then. at least hes not up there falling down drunk like one of the judges thats running for office.and hes in a good marriage now and the fact is he not the same guy your making him out to be . but wait a min. i guess your a saint arent you , youve never done anything wrong have you . youve never made a mistake or done something youve regreted have you ? point is you only have 2 men to choose from for sherriff , so what the hell do you want .
