Actually they are called "Dixie Dogs'. Drop by and see james he's a great family guy with a new baby. At least he's out there busting his a** to make a living. The city "Almost Got Away With it", when they tried to jack their fees. Mr.Wood scalded the City with letters to the editor, and the City was shamed into doing the right thing. Now, Mr. Wood is running for the school board, and I hope he will stand up for our kids the same way.

A big Thanks Mr.Woods and the others who took the city council to task last year and showed them that the good ole boy network isn't going fly in the internet era.You need to get up to speed Mr. Mayor.And like you i hope he (woods) wins a seat on the school board so he can give the working people a voice.

Thanks Mr. Woods and best of luck in your endeavors both with Dixie Dogs and with the School Board. A major change is needed in all arenas of McDowell County. It appears you will not back down from anyone and that's a great attribute.

The cart fee debacle was not a shining moment for the city council, Crooked Door Coffee House and Bruce's Fabulous Foods. They pushed and the public pushed back,score one for the people.

The McDowell News will NOT print anything negative towards the Mayor.

With this being an earth shattering event I cannot believe the McDowell News would not print your letter. I just called and talked with them and it seems that you must have gone to the wrong place,because they have not heard anything about this situation. The McDowell News is located just across from the Library and beside of the Fire Dept. Please try just one more time. I for one would really like to know who the IDIOT is that started all of this !!!

If in fact this did occur, and I believe based on speaking with some of the employees at Verizon Wireless that it did indeed occur, Mayor Little needs to bring the council up to speed on what steps he has taken to see this doesn't happen again and also were the items returned that may have been taken by false pretense ?

I would like to see Verizon Wireless file a complaint with the Police Department so that the details of this can come out. This would only be fair as if it were reversed and the City had been taken advantage of by false pretense our Mayor would have it blasted on the front page and WLOS.

If this did happen ?? And "I" believe it did?? I would like to see a complaint ? "Progress Marion" I've got news for you. Inbred idiots like you is the reason Marion will never make any progress, until you die out or leave. If you don't have the backbone to ask the Mayor about this call wlos and they will do you dirty work for you. Everytime I see these stupid post I'm so proud that I voted for the Mayor and hope to see him there for many years to come.

i spoke with the manager and he spoke with employees and this is a LIE...yes, the Mayor is doing a great job- idiots are jealous and will stop at nothing to run someone's name down ..doubt they have a name. I called verizon locally and went few steps beyond...NOT true

This is NOT a LIE. I spoke to three employees there to confirm before I posted.

You are trying to support a double standard which has become expected in McDowell County Politics.

You must have talked to Verizon not Verizon Wireless unless you are being dishonest about it.

The employees I spoke with several months back also had no problem recalling the incident exactly. Again, someone it trying to cover something up here plain and simple.

If they are quiet now its because someone has told them to be. Which wouldn't surprise me since this was attempted to be hushed by someone early on. Not only were the employees aware of this they had one of their employees post some information regarding it. I don't think anyone on here is jealous of Little or any of his staff.

Again, I know who I spoke to.

Also it is not VERIZON, you can call them all you want. It is Verizon Wireless and they are two different companies. I am sure they are not going to say anything over the phone. That's why I talked to them in person.

All of this post has been caused, by the stupid and jealous people of McDowell County. Trying to use this media to do their dirt on a person who is so far above them that they can't stand it. Small minded, spitful and ignorant people who live to downgrade those who are active and working for the good of the community.

No jealousy here. So are you stating that the employees of Verizon Wireless are jealous of the Mayor or his assistant?

Is that what you are insinuating?

So called, Progress Marion, Tom and some of the other inbreds on here have egg all over their faces. Guttless,Backbiting,Morons can not confront the people they hate eye to eye. They get on Topix and make claims they can't prove, just hoping to harm some good persons reputation. Spitful gossips is about all you can write it off to.
