Buford, I did not take your post personal And I agree with you, the problem is ownership. I was an aldermen In Puxico many moons ago, and I made a promise to the people I defeated, and I never, ever said a bad word about them, they were my friends and still are, and I gathered with them every month to go over their concerns to bring to the board. I did make a comment at that table that we should not make comments about things that serious because we don’t like people. You mention my problem with Hobbs and I will not discuss that on this post, but again I did set down with that subject and try to talk and it went south as soon as I left his office and my good name was put around the school I was a trouble maker. Back to ownership, just because a person is on city council they have no power as an individual, but as a board they are the power. You are right and that was my comment to John, you have a job to do and you do it the same for Jeff as you do for your best supporter, who looses when the drugs are out of hand, who looses when we punish the police Dept. by understaffing, who looses the children the next generation, I still believe the greatest gift we are given for the future is our children and EVERY move made ought to be to keep the drugs and druggies out and for our leader to s SHOW them how to lead. They have the WWF and all the stiff to teach them how to fight we need someone to step up and swallow their pride and start to bury this junk that kept the down and divided and STEP up to make our little town a place you are proud to live in. A few years ago we had a chance to have some new business come in and we had the land to help them and did so, but the new Mayor at the time thought she need to lead a reversal of that and did. It kills me to see my home dwindle because people had rather engage in a pi*#ing contest and not make out town be a great little place, and to all our leaders, if you don’t want to work with all people for the best of our town sit down please we don’t need you, and Buford I don’t know which alderman your talking about, but I’m thinking our NY connection, I really hope he doesn’t come into my yard because as much as I like him I will not put up with that. Than for your concern Buford and I hope this makes some kind of sense I pray for Puxico everyday!!!!

As I said nothing personal, just wanted a fare slate.

City Kid is right, I was amazed that Vo Ag could count as a science credit. Give me a break, which is more important now a days, understanding the periodic table or which end a pig gives birth from? Or lets teach our senior valedictorians how to right a check in applied math.<grrrr>

Diehardindianfan I may have said some pretty strong things about our police force, But the truth is the truth. Last campaign I asked the NYer and his chauffeur what was there plan on addressing the drug problem in our town. They answered, "Puxico doesn't have a drug problem" Just like it doesn't have an ethics problem, the chauffeur was in his full police uniform and answered a call while they were campaigning. Using city resources for election purposes is against the law. Doesn't sound like much, but it shows a pattern for disregard of the law.
I have nothing personal at all against the board or the police department. but when the grown adults can do nothing but act like a bunch of jealous school girls then they need to be gone. I have my doubts at this point if Johnny could do the job we need done as police chief. By that I mean the druggies are not intimidated by him and most know he won't do anything if they do get caught. We need a few people that first can admit we have a problem and then are not afraid to make an effort to clean up the mess. Johnny carries to much baggage here, by law he should be on the watchdog list as a predator, he shouldn't be allowed to live where he does(to close to school). These are not personal issues these are the law. You said it, it is a matter of ownership. We need to own up to the fact that we have screwed up, we have turned our heads far to long. And it is not really us that suffered it is the kids, we left them nothing but what was on the toilet paper.

I have to be really careful as I am very close to the situation, and there are some things I could tell you that I would want to say face to face as, not that their like top secret stuff I just would not want the info to fall into the wrong hands. I am going to give you my email
[email protected] when you find out that I am you will see why I want to talk face to face. If Puxico doesn’t have a drug problem neither does the country of Columbia. I am amazed as to what our little town has become, my heart aches for my Puxico, where people were a family, there is people that live up by the park that deal drugs but wont be touched for who their kinfolk are, I wrote my own daughter a ticket for running a stop sign in front of me she thought I would look the other way, not me that’s the problem in PUX to many folks looking the other way, we need new blood, Puxico PD is going to have to get tough on drugs or the city is forever lost. And I agree we have great teachers at our school but I know I am beating a dead horse but the guy at the top has allot of people fooled, when I was working a major, major big time investigation and you would be surprised how many times his name came up and that’s all I can say without compromising an investigation, his way of dealing with things was to get rid of as amny hometown folks, I think that was his way gaining control. I know Puxico is a country town but to substitute ag as science, that is not legal. I know some people think I hate him, I don’t really’ but I love my town and my alma mater so much I want to see it stay a good reputable place, thanks for listening I will do all I can to make sure it gets back that way!

I lived in Puxico from the time I was 13 until I was 25 and nothing much has changed except abe the old marshal is gone. Things went on back then but no one paid any attention to them it was fun then abe didnt care what you did as long as no one died that was the good old days. anyone remember when the jail was that little building and Paul fouts set his mattress on fire and we thought he was gonna die before abe could find his glasses to come down and open it. He just said well maybe he wont do it again. Things were so better back then.

To the people of Puxico, commenting on this forum is completely insane! It is the people that live in Puxico who are to blame! The corruption is and seems that always will be in it's elected officials. The very one's you vote for! Our fine Marshall, in any other town would be in jail, not driving a $30000 vechicle supplied by or fine voters, and drawing a check for the work he doesn't do. Our fire department is a joke, manned by either juveniles, who think they are above the law or others who fear the dark let alone a fire. To top it all off again our elected board, blinded by ignorance, lets it all happen! You want a change? Take it to the city, not the computer!!!!!!!!

Because the older, more mature and more experienced, men in the town don't want to put up the the political bulls@#t that both the city officials and the so-called fire chief has to offer. The teenie boppers on the "volunteer" fire department think that they are "someone" because they get to carry around their fire radios and have sirens on their vehicles. I live in good ole Puxico currently and I pray to God that I never have a need for the fire department because I think that I could do a better job fighting the fire myself!!!

You hit the nail on the head!!!! What this town needs is a complete overhaul. I personally know a former police officer that worked in puxico, that was ask to step down due to the fact that he communicated with the shefiff's department and our fine marshall was afraid the county would know to much about our town. Countless times this same officer was called at all hours of the night to transport female's to jail due to his previous, owe how would you say, fornifications. This person made more arrest as a reserve the the entire police department combined in the time in which he was there. Remove the residence requirement for the cheif's position and lets get someone in there that will clean house in the department and clean up our town..

Now there is something sensible! But remember this town would rather vote for Ronnie Looney because they knew him, they done it twice in one election already. There is something to see Ronnie cruzin down main street on his lawn mower and trailer painted black and white with a big star on the side (wonder if JC has any paint left over from his explorer?) chugging a bottle of wild turkey. <LOL>

If that be the case, not much to choose from here in Pux a drunk or petifile.

You people are freaks!!! Good lord, find something else to do besides trash each other. Its a small place, come on, i think its freakin funny how its being compared to "Britany". How stupid is that? Drugs are everywhere, always have been. Hell, you probably did some yourself. I don't do drugs, don't agree with that mess being around. But its everywhere, not just Puxico. And in a small town, everyone always knows everyones business or think they do. Get over it.. get a life. sheesshhh!!

the entire puxico school board is screwed up. If a members wife (mrs. modglin) wants something done they get it done. The cadet teaching students who had to walk to the elementary everyday were not allowed to walk through the junior high hall, even though it was faster and it kept you from the rain and snow. The reason they couldn't walk through. "they were taking up too much of the hall" said mrs. modglin. yes 6 kids an hour takes up so much room. Oddly enough, the school board decided we couldn't walk through after she had something to say about it. God i hate that stupid [email protected]

There are no drug dealings involved in Puxico. I was raised in Puxico and have lived here my entire life. If there were to be something wrong with Puxico wouldn't you assume some higher power of the government would come see. Well there hasn't been. And you don't see the people of Puxico on this stupid immature blog, bashing your home town. There is nothing wrong with Puxico! When you are born and raisied in Puxico, you know everyone, everyone knows you, and in my opinion I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. Yeah, I am not saying everything in Puxico is perfect, but there has been no drug dealings! Yes, Puxico does not have the perfect school, and yes, some people in Puxico are pretty insane, but we have a good community. And I feel pretty strongly about this subject. So please if you are not from Puxico, LEAVE THE WORD PUXICO OUT OF YOUR MOUTH!

Thank You, Have a nice day!:)

wow....ok yes, puxico does have a lot of drug use, and yes puxico does have divorces, but i ask you this...what town does not have drugs and divorce? How dare you accuse all the residents of this town of being imbred and such. Do you honestly know every last resident of this town? this town is not only home to druggies and drunks but it is home to good, loving people as well...our mayor is a fine christian man strong in his faith....and there are many small bussiness in this town owned by hardworking people. Yes herschell may have made bad choices in the past but did he not pay for them? I go to the indian retreat nearly every day and i have not once been offered prescription pills with my cheeseburger.....maybe you should truly get to know all the citizens of this town before you go throwing accusactions around. I was born and raised in this town, its all i have ever known, i graduated from Puxico High School, nearly every day of my life has been spent in this town and i most definately am not a drunk, a druggie, nor am i imbred....so to all of you insulting uniformed assholes who like to group all citizens of this community together...and call us usless...quit hiding behind your screenname...my name is courtney dejournett and you can always find me in puxico so why dont you come down and visit...this fine community you dispise so much and we will sit down and discuss all of your Very STRONG feelings....thank you and god help you!!!

Wow. It's been so long since I posted this that I forgot what it said originally. Sorry guys, it's gonna be a long one. I don't hide behind a screen name. Anyone with deductive reasoning skills from previous posts and this one can determine who I am. Hell, in one post I even signed it with my name. That's not hiding. You are right, I don't like the town of Puxico. However, in my previous post I did include a disclaimer as I have met some very nice people that would give the shirt off of their back to help you. I have also met people such as myself that have never done drugs or smoked cigarettes. I even met and fell in love with my husband here, so the whole town of Puxico isn’t bad. But, here's the disclaimer again...in case you missed it.*****This message and comparison to Britney doesn't encompass all of Puxico. It seems that there are some intelligent posters on this site that many would find it hard to lump into the above categories of degeneracy. However, if the shoe fits, wear it.***** I even put it in asterisks so it couldn’t be missed.

When I posted this originally, I was outraged that nobody was causing a fuss about the pill situation at the Retreat. The town I'm from would have had a field day with news coverage, protesters, etc. I no longer have a problem with the Retreat. I understand people do the crime, get punished, and as long as they don't do it again, I'm cool. Everyone deserves 2nd chances. My mom and I would eat their frequently when I lived there and rented movies as well. As to the game room, I've never stepped in there so I can't talk about that as others have on this forum. I was worried that the town was turning a blind eye to the situation (I, now, know that they were not.) However, now it seems that they are turning a blind eye to the rape of teenage girls in this town. Your town isn't really big enough to account for the high incidence of crimes. The local police should be working hard to bring these people to justice. No girl should have to be the victim of rape especially in a town where everyone knows everyone.(Now some say they weren’t raped that they traded sex for alcohol…the man should be held accountable for exchanging sex for alcohol and giving alcohol to minors, if that is the case.)

Now the reasons, I have a hard time liking this town aren't necessarily due to the people. Like I said, I've never done a drug or smoked a cigarette in my entire life. I had never even been offered drugs until my second day I arrived in Puxico. At this point in my life, the only thing I knew about meth was how horribly it destroyed lives on the tv show, Intervention and here in Puxico, it was being offered to me on my 2nd day in town. I didn't by the way. I’m still drug free and will be for the rest of my life. I genuinely feel for the children of the town. I lived 23 years in Florida without being offered drugs ONCE. It makes me sad that the children of the town are faced with the offer of drugs daily. No child should have to be offered drugs, alcohol or cigarettes. A child should be allowed to be a child. I even met one father who gleefully told me about his 8 year old smoking.

To be continued..
