I Was reading in the paper about some pupe dream of a railroad spur to poky? Who are these idiots? Its beyond stupid. even if goods where needed to be shipped to or from poky by rail. It still would have to be moved to or from the rail line by trucks. We already have a good 4 lane road to the railroads at Hoxie. just leav it on the truck and drive it a few more miles. There isnt a need to spend 21.5 million tax dollars on something that isnt needed. Thats why the cotton belt abandoned the old rail line years ago. Scott Baltz is a idiot for even proposing such a hair brained idea. There are never going to be factories the caliber of waterloo in poky ever again. There wont ever be enough shipping demand to justify a short line spur to poky. And the 4 lane 67 is currently being extended to the bypass around Bono. yes hwy 230 is going to be four lane. Bono is about 10 miles from the 67 & 230 Jct.

Everyone in public office is greedy to receive and handle their own grant monies. There are already several agencies that have been working with railroads for developmet in Hoxie for years.
Now Baltz comes along with what he thinks is his bright shiny new idea.
What a political puppy.
Get a caboose in town, now we need tracks, eh?
Maybe we should ride him out on a rail!
Forget the rails, we tore them up years ago. Baltz is stuck in a time warp, we will get a steamboat landing next.

No the railroad dont own the easments to walnut ridge. The old cotton belt rail road didnt pay the taxes on the right of way and it was parceled out and sold at public auction. The commissioner of state lands sold it. wal mart and a number of buisnesses on the west side of old county road are located on part of the former Rail Road right of way. At one time the Rail line extended all the way to corning. The tracks crossed current river north of the 67 current river bridge near the Keller T. It should be evident that there isnt now or never in the future will be enough shipping in poky to justify a 21.5 million dollar Rail road spur. besides I thought this was a intermodal joint agreement between the Chamber of commerces of corning ,poky and nut hill ,hoxie. corning & hoxie both have existing railroad access. Hoxie has access to both the UP and B&N railroads.

Its normal for Democrats to do these things stupidity is inbread into Democrats,Harry Reed is wants to build 400 miles from las Vegas to L.a.if it cost 21 bil for nut ridge to poky thats a fraction of cost for the other line,no big deal Obama can print that over night,of course that wont change the cost,it just makes our dollar value at fifity cents.

So I suppose there will be another looney idea next month? so far we have been entertained with a RR tie plant. Windmill,s , Fourlane 67 following the present route. A rotting caboose and a 21.5 million uneeded rail spur.poky is dying. In The whole USA evry ton is wanting a factory. they are gone to other countries and lame ideas wont make the jobs return

Its possible remmber we have new taxes now and the gov.is looking for places to spend more borrowed money everyone will make less and pay 3.8% taxes on any realestate transfers thats a lot of money for the gov. to take in and Democrats are inbread,realy think about,poky has about 30% of the industry it had when the rail was took out not sure but i think about 68 or 69 but they will need another route because the old is gone and it will have to be built high so it wont flood,dont give up on Democrats you never know what they might do next.

The elected officials are trying to implement AGENDA 21 into our Community. As incompetent as they are they probally dont even know what they are doing to the detriment of the city and county as we all know it. Look at what some brave people are doing in Jonesboro to tell the Council there to STOP trying to implement AGENDA 21 into their lives in Jonesboro. Pay attention to what they say at meetings, listen. They will continue to seek grant money, buy up land and implement things that will not grow the town create jobs etc. Its a agenda to control the people by a few who will call themselves the ATHORITY. Google AGENDA 21 and then carefully listen to some in council meetings and quorum court meetings and see if you reconize any big words. TEA

Remember when we all laughed at Tackmaster, thought "what th' hell is he raving about?" THEN IT ALL CAME QUICKLY AND PAINFULLY INTO FOCUS, YES IT DID!
Those officials grabbing grant monies and dues hand over fist won't help you, they don't know anything but the old ways. We will never return to a manufactuing base as we knew it. Scott Baltz is wasting his time with the old RR idea Intermodl has been workin on it for years. If a simple siding can't be built at the crossing in Hoxie, what the hell chance is there for a spur to Poky? Get real. Idiots! Best place for Baltz is LR, KEEP HIM FROM UNDERFOOT

Im glad to see tackmaster posting. I really believe there are dangers to our freedoms from the NWO & UN. Agenda 21 is part of it also. Ive moved away from randolph county. I was sick and tires of the GOB parasites and their big city idea,s. Mainly raise taxes and spend more than they generate in revenues.

If folks dont wake up the next election and demand term limits AND vote the existing politicians or elected officials of Pocahontas and Randolph Co. OUT, AGENDA 21 will Be Implemented and Is being implemented now by Athorities unelected that are smarter than our elected officials. This athority is at work now. This athority puts PATSYS in as the peoples leaders to do their bidding not ours . The people must get back in the fight and do the peoples duty to our constitution and go to meetings, Listen to what your city council members are saying. Listen to what your Quorum Ct. Members are saying. Ask tough questions. Most important to stop Agenda 21 is to vote them all out and elect patriots, people with experience and knowledge to the Constitution. We must elect constitutinal Sheriffs. Have Mayors Appoint Constitutionl Police Chiefs. Did anyone listen to the 3 hour Hearing on Gun Violence today on CSPAN? Folks raise your antennas now and listen and get Active. They are mowing us down and the only solutions is to VOTE THE BUMS OUT right here in our Local Towns. This is where AGENDA 21 Is going to Target...Mayors, Sheriffs, city council and quorum court, and they are doing so now in Jonesboro but some people with spines are stepping up and trying to stop it. Who will do same here? A vote will be one huge Solution. PUBLIC OFFICE HAS BECOME A POSITION OF PROFIT VS A OFFICE OF HONOR! Benjamin Franklin traveled to Europe and he noted that there was a violent struggle for appointments to public office because they PAID SO WELL. He felt this was a serious mistake. Its happening here! They are becoming Violent to hold office and be RE ELECTED by You!! TEA
