Makes perfect sense don't it? At what point will the town board start looking to better the town, not make it worse? Are they so clouded by their personal lives and decisions to make better choices for a town that elected them? Bring in new people, not the same people that have been there for 30, 40, 50, etc year. New blood would do the town good, an outside prospective. To hire someone that once said in an open meeting, "We wash our hands of Carthage", probably was not the smartest move. Of course that quote did not make the minutes of that meeting.

That quote didn't make the minutes but it was printed in the Banner.

It was in the article they printed regarding Officer Ellis being fired. Not sure of the date it was printed but it was their paper that came out right after he was fired. Surprised me a little too that they hired the guy that when last time he stood before the board and town stated he has " washed his hands of Carthage". Oh well nothing this town does makes any sense to me anymore.

I was just informed that the Carthage k-9 car was seen on 40 past Charlettesville going towards Greenfield at 6:45pm yesterday....hmmm.......really hope some one explained all the "rules" to this new Marshal and didn't just hand him the keys and said here ya go.

Yes he is still the kpd chief also. I think it would be an issue but I guess others do not think it will be one. Guess we will all have to just wait and see.

This is an interesting outcome. At one point he was advised by the Knightstown Town Council to not accept this position when Rick Bush left due to his duty here in Knightstown. So this time around he simply didn't advise the board of his actions this tims and accepted it. Now I've already seen his new Carthage car in Greenfield, as well as all over Knightstown. On top of things his comment about Carthage made at a meeting. Odds are the Knightstown Town Council won't do a thing about it even though it went against there wishes, and with what Carthage has put up with with past marshalls you know they are too stupid to care what he does. Knightstown is taking his take home car away due to abusing the perk and driving all over while "fixing" his mileage to cover his a**. So what now? oh wait thats right, he has a carthage car now, works out i reckon. He might not be all that bright but you know what, he isn't all that stupid either, hes got people fooled and no one cares enough to do anything or SAY anything. Knightstown PUBLIC Council Meeting next Thursday(3-21) at 7pm in the old Knightstown Court...i beg all to attend that can. Make a statement, don't keep it in. I know ill be there.

The Carthage car is not a take home car and unless he is assisting on a call should not be in Knightstown. Also, was the day you saw the car in Greenfield Wednesday or another time because I have had people tell me they saw it on 40 going towards greenfield and that was Wednesday night about 6:45pm. I really hope hiring him was the best fit but he's been here only 2 days and already misusing the Carthage car.......hmmmm

Oh come on all you can find to degrade this man is that somebodies babydaddys', aunties bff said they saw the town car in Hancock county? Really? Could have been one of a thousand things. Give him a chance to fill the position he was hired for. Try looking for something positive before you so quickly judge. There will be advantages to having this link between these 2 towns. Trashing his family? You sound like a Jerry Springer candidate, shame on you! He knows everything that has gone on with the past marshalls and deputies and the town board. I am amazed he would want anything to do with the mess, but he is willing to take the job. Be grateful the citizens of Carthage have been subjected to much worse. I for one welcome Danny Baker!

Actually his daughters drug problem is not only an addiction to pain killers, but also selling drugs while everyone looks the other way because of who her dad is. As far as misuse of his police unit...well, trips to walmart to shop is hardly police business, which is why his Knightstown car is finally being taken away. Im a big Danny Baker fan, however he is not in any position to lead a town of any size. Give him a chance? how long has he had Knightstown? Now we have a "free" hummer that needs more work than is worth it to even make it safe to be driven on the road, a little red truck that cost the town over $3000 which never gets used. All the while we have actual police cars that need major repair or replacement. he hires police officers fulltime on the "buddy system" all because he grew up with their dad or owes them a favor to keep their mouth shut about something else thats going on only later to fire them and blame it on the town council for the reason they were fired saying he "went to bat" for them, but actually hung them out to dry. Then hired his friends son, paid to send him to the academy. the same kid that drives dangerously in his police car, runs around between girls here in town, leaving one at home ready to give birth to his child, has a bad temper, pulls people over with made up probable cause which he later brags about openly. That is a lawsuit waiting to happen. He was heard by several people stating the only reason he stayed on Knightsown and is taking the Carthage position is to get his wife a new vehicle. The very same man that only a short while back stated that he is washing his hands of carthage and said they were a lawsuit waiting to happen, and told his officers to make an excuse not to respond to carthage if they were ever requested. All these things are true, already out in the open events that is no secret to anyone...these are just the ones we KNOW about. People say give him a chance? The benefit of the doubt? Like we did with Clint Ellis?, and we didnt even have this much info when hiring him and look where that got us. All of these facts about Danny, his comments, and reasoning and we still support this? To each their own, different strokes for different folks, whatever tickles your fancy, but facts are facts, and once you compile them we wither have some really ignorant uneducated people on Knightstown and Carthage Town councils or hes been hired on the "good ole boy" system, which is the same. I guess we'll watch things unfold as they will. When you drawl that much attention the right people eventually notice.

Well I seen him in k-town one evening out at Adams place out by Ernie's, didn't know that was Carthage coverage, but any where he wants to go is his coverage I guess.

Word around town is that he has permission to use the towns car because his personal vehicle isn't working right now.........must be nice. They should make sure he is using for work only and not grocery shopping at Wal-Mart.
