Sorry, but you need to call the capitol and then call who is in charge of fixing the pool at Laurel...because he got it 7-8 hundred thousand to have it fixed....he can fix it ...just get the money and that is what he did....so you may need to call the park ranger and ask who is over the fixing with the money that Truman got it....Like the other, you need to watch the news and read mmore than the williamson daily...they never print one thing that mingo gets from Chafin....they must be run by the good ole county commissioner boys!!!!!! rEAD THE CHARLESTON GAZETTE..IT PRINTS WHAT MINGO GETS AND SO DOES THE LOGAN BANNER. tHEN MAYBE YOU WOULD BE MORE INFORMED THAN INFORMED IS

What I meant to say was that Truman provided the money, but he can't fix it himself...it is now up to the county and the park...the money is there!!!!! Call his office...I did, since I have been reading all of this. They have to, by law, provide you with information on monies and grants sent to counties. And the money for the park was approved a long long time ago. What do you do...just believe what the good ole commissioners say? You need to find out for yourself so you can be correct when you make statements about what has and has not be funded.

Truman is in Charleston t see that we are not forgotten when there is a chance to get any advantage that is made possible. These lazy lay-it-off-on-whoevers we have at the courthouse are supposed to be filling out grants so the money can be alotted to the county. Am I mistaken but at one time I was told that even the deputies can do this. And I'm probably mistaken but is Hootie a lawyer he should be filing them left and right, but I guess he's all worn out from handing out all that kerosene and water.

Yea, that he acted like he got...lol...what is sad is when people are in need that others don't help because they care. They went around saying, "Don't forget where this came from." Well, I have news for everyone--IT CAME FROM CHARLESTON...NOT FROM HOOTIE AND DAVE BAISDEN

you see that what we mean if Truman got the money and it was sent down to Mingo county how come its not fixed yet" get it same old same old BLA BAL BAL POINTING THE FINGER. he's the state senator or does that not mean anything if he would have stood by his word like a man and even if he had to file criminal charges on stolen money that I’m sure somewhere in the grant or where ever the money came from it had some kind of wording in it to protect it from these so called money stealing county commissions where surely nothing like that has never ever happened in Mingo county ever before No sheriff job ever sold No large attorneys fee's pad on the backs of Mingo county taxpayers over it No 11% electric hike ever happen on his watch as head man for the people of the county and state but I’m sure a good senator who is as important as he thinks he is to Mingo county if really really wanted with all his pull rally wanted to get a pool fixed or worked on or have men charged with a crime for steeling state money to fix it could have done something except bla bla bla

Truman is doing what he can. He gets the money funded to send to the county & the 3 dumbass Commissioners (dave, john mark & HOOTIE) use it for all the wrong things. John Mark & HOOTIE are up for re-election, so theres not a doubt in my mind that they havne't stolen some of the money to use on their campain trail. They really need to be investigated. No wonder Mingo county does't have anything. They use the money that Truman sends down for all the wrong reasons. The 3 commissioners have no interest in making Mingo County a better place. They could care less. All they worry about is what they can get out of it. When Lonnie is eleced in John Marks place I'm sure that all of the bullshit will stop. Lonnie will not go along with everything "dave & hootie" say. Truman does what he can & ppl want to run their mouth on him when they need to be pointing fingers at our Commissioners!!!!.. Lonnie- take that commission seat & straighten this county up & TRUMAN- keep doing what your doing .. your doing a great job! only if our commissioners would do the right thing!.. THANKS!=)

No he didn't. But he might now since you brought it up. And if he did he wouldn't be loosing anything. With the money they have given to people like Dadoo Trucking...almost a million. I would assume that maybe I smell a kickback

Everyone is on here pointing fingers this has nothing to do with pointing fingers, after the money is sent is it not plausible that we could expect our commissioners to take this money and do what is supposed to be done with it without us holding our hands over their asses to make sure they do what is suppposed to. And no we don't need Lonnie in their doing his little thing, I thought you people were sick of the pandering. If he could be a just sheriff like he is suppposed to it would be all right. I know for a fact he does one thing to most of the people and inside his family he has changed police reports, completely covered up crime scenes, destroyed evidence and I can't count what else, but I know. What goes for some should go for his family and it does'nt check in to it before you go or you may be one of the families next victims. But if the people don't open their eyes and do it nobody can.

If any one person vtes for Lonnie either they are related to him or they know absolutly nothing about him because anyone close to these people know about the slight of hand that is going on at a persistent rate. This is not justice it's a disgrace.

one more thing the Williamson news needs to get their act together a newspaper is to inform the people on all the news not just what they want you to here so we are watching how they cover events that are taking place right now by the feds and their investigation or does the court house know this Truman is that why you are staying away. you have until the election to find the missing money we the people have spoken and the Williamson Dailey liar we better see some reporting on this matter or your sales will drop off the chart this is only one thing they are others lets start with this one first and see and if you agree let everyone know by telling them whats going on here on this topix form for united we stand

What is it you don't understand about this, after Truman gets the money for the county, then gives it to our commissioners it shouldn't be his responsiblity to hold his hand over them to make sure they spend on what they are supposed to. It is the commissioners, if the money was delivered, that you need to address. Truman did his job helping to get the money. Wonder if the the paper will wrote about, or find out why the prosecuting attorney didn't indict Adam Wicker for armed robbery, I heard he's related by marriage, chalk one up for mighty mingo politics.
