Who cares. If you are really concerned for the county, quit wasting more tax dollars on this crap.

I totally agree. Howie knows best. I have always said that citizens have no right to know how their Tax Dollars are spent. Democracy is a waste of time. I don't see why Giles can't withdraw from the U.S.. We could elect Howie KING of Giles. Think of how much free time we would have if we never had to think again. It works fine for Scott Dunn.

You don't seem interested in the unethical actions of someone that abused his power as a supervisor and used county employees to work on property that benefited a partnership that claims to be a "public school foundation". Only problem is, the school superintendent denies any connection to the partnership! This is YOUR tax dollars. How can you not care? When the state police investigation is completed, the truth will be out there for everyone to see. Let me know how you feel then!

okk is right. State Conflict of Interest Laws are for everyone else not Howard Spencer. The corporation that pays his salary should be able to profit from his misuse of our tax dollars. If his corporation doesn't prosper he wouldn't have gotten paid. Howard deserves his pay no matter what. If he wasn't allowed to abuse the law he wouldn't have been able to come up with the money for his groups fly ash project. We have to look at the big picture. One day the fly ash site will create new jobs to keep our youth here, increase our County's tax base, help our schools (I don't care if the school board never agreed to it)and lower our utility bills. So as soon as Howard gets out of jail he will wrap up the Campground lawsuit against the Partnership, get utilities to the site and sell the site for development and all will be right in the world -- just you doubters wait and see. P.S. Can you believe Supervisor Williams comment at the BOS meeting. He said it would be wrong to do what Howard did and that he wouldn't do it. Of course it would be wrong for him because he's not Howard Spencer. Duh!

Rumor has it that the witch hunters are full of bologna. Who's gonna be the first to apologize to the man after he is cleared of any wrong doing? Maybe somebody should be doing some digging into a few of the concerned citizens

I guess we will all find out at the same time. He didn't have to benefit personally....he misused county funds and equipment when he was a supervisor and that is NOT OK!

People say "it happens all the time", "he isn't the only one that does it", it proabaly does happen other places but I don't care about other places...this is MY tax money and yours.

When you are a member of a partnership, you are held responsible individually.

Miss I interested44, since you are so free speaking about the situation why don't you reveal your name? Maybe afraid of a defamation lawsuit?

Not sure who "Miss I" is? But why don't we wait till the SP finish their investigation. They don't investigate unless they find something that isn't kosher...will be interesting to find out what charges come out of this. And your name is???

I'm not the one on here throwing around Howard's name, starting numerous post about him and stirring the crap... That's all you. You have the nerve to do that because you assume your identity will remain anonymous. Here is a tip for you. When you want to smear someone's reputation, best to do it verbally so there isn't any actual proof that you did it. Making written statements from a computer IP address or cell phone isn't very bright. But then again, neither is wasting thousands upon thousands of dollars trying to ruin a mans reputation. "A coward will always hide behind a cloak of darkness because the light of day will expose their cowardice to the rest of the world"... Not a bad quote and fitting to this situation

I for one am a taxpayer, and do not appeciate having to pay more taxes so that oneof Howad's buddies gets a new house and I am paying for it. Let the investigation start and we will see how guilty the protesters of the GCCC are!
