Well I hope that however this lands the drug dogs come in and take control of the meth and pot that are being made or grown in old fort. It is sad that this small wonderful town is going down hill. We need change.

Smoking just alittle evidence that made it over here in Avery.We have to share or we cannot get more avery boys to work in McDowell.AveryBoys have control now,elections will not change things.We have people in place to count the same ballot boxes three maybe four times to make sure.Don't worry, if any are on the hard stuff they will work at the dog pound and not on patrol.Thanks to dems4dud,the fake Smoker,patrol,Parental Guidance,RichelleBailey,Turner s,the past leaders of Old Fort who made this all possible.PS:Also the many pew warmers at First Baptist who reside in Avery.Without your money we could not have suceeded in this Avery take over of McDowell..

There is so much c*$p in these postings that it could be used for fertilizer for a 300 acre farm!

Mayor Norton is one upstanding and concerned person that I would trust my life to. I fully support his efforts to clean Old Fort of its undesirable elements, whether civilian or police individuals. He has nothing but the best intentions for the people of Old Fort, and is doing better than anyone has to date.

The persons at the public meetings trying to discredit him are an ex-mayor wanting his old job back, ex-aldermen wanting their old jobs back, and others that have no way except badmouthing the best thing that Old Fort has ever had going.

There is much that cannot be written about the situation that will come to light in the future.

Anyone would be hard pressed to find ANYONE of the stature, calibre, honesty, and public concern that Mayor Norton has for the residents of Old Fort.

What the people of Old Fort should do is target City Aldermen seats for the next election. That is where the power is. The Mayor can not do ANYTHING unless the City Aldermen vote to go along with him.
Don't wait your effort on trying to oust Garland, target his voting base and take the wind out of his sails.
And NOTHING can get accomplished in this town when the chief of police is also deputy mayor and on the board of alderman. How's that happen. Hmmm maybe we taxpayers and citizens of this town should stand up and start asking questions.

Join my new forum on changes in old fort. I'm trying to get the people to see that the town is not going forward, if anything, it's going backward. Let's talk about how to get a new and useful younger crowd in leadership, some with backbones and who want this place to grow.
