ben jones done more on the way to work every morning than this bean has done since he held the job . if the co. is not giving him the money that he's alotted every year to do the job , then he needs to sue the mayor! if he is getting the tax dollars , where is it being spent. we need to gheck on his big farm up in the valley and see what kinds of upgrades have been made since he took the job.he needs to stop playing big wheel with the co. leaders , let some air out of his head , knick that chip off his shoulder and get to work . petersburg road and many others are a joke and embarrasing to the tax payers!!!

The detour through Petersburg Rd was an experience for many I'm guessing. Never saw so much pothole patch and gravel back fill on those winding cow paths they call roads. Those road's are pathetic back there.

ROGERSVILLE — Hawkins County Superintendent of Roads Lowell Bean said Thursday he spends about $12,000 to $15,000 per year on road sign replacement, and more than half of that is due to sign theft or vandalism.

On Tuesday, Bean reported to the Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office that five road signs had been discovered vandalized last Friday, including: stop signs on Price’s Grove Road, Ridge Road and Walker Church Road; a dead end sign on Arnott Road; and a hidden entrance sign on Wolfe Branch Road.

Now we know where the money goes since he doesn't spend it on repairing the roads.

Oh Yeah. We got an election year coming. Time to start the mud slinging on Topix. I got a good idea who is behind this thread. Is there a county commissioners/employee of the school system who has designs on the road superintendent job?

What do you mean "start"? It ain't mud slinging when it's true and when it comes to Bean and his work as Road Superintendent it never stopped. People of Hawkins County are sick and tired of him not doing his job. I do hope that the qualified candidates that ran against him in the last election run against him again this year. Note I said "qualified". I don't think that an employee of the school system or being a commissioner qualifies anyone to be a Road Superintendent.

You don't need to be qualified. Its common sense. And as far as me. I'd rather have someone with experince in county politics so they will and can get the money to put these roads back together. I know who your talkin about in the above post. Did u know that man is qualified because when he was younger he had a construction job and he also has supervision experince.

I have personally talked to County Commisioner Mr. Gilliam and I respect him. He is an honest man. If he choses to run for that job, he stands a great chance, he has great ideas of how things need to be done to improve the roads of Hawkins County, which what he has talked to me about anyone who didn't vote for him would be very foolish. I plan on supporting him for what ever he runs for and so will many of people when they hear his ideas. Thanks Don Messer

I agree with you Mr. Messer. Mr. Gilliam's ideas are very intelligent. Too bad our Road Commissioner right now doesn't have ideas like that.

if he is co. commisioner, he should have some input on the way things are being done and let it be known to the public other than playing politics in hopes of election!!!!!

While we are talking about road signs--I do believe that it was Ben Jones who got all those roads named and signs put up. And I don't think he spent as much as Bean says he spends just to replace them. When I first began coming to this area, it was in the late 80's, I remember trying to give my sister directions. I told her to turn at the big 2 story white house. She asked what the name of the road was. I said it don't have a name. She said I was crazy it has to have a name. I told her it might have a name but it don't got a sign.

Mr Gilliam is an honest man. What does money has to do with anything? That's why our county is in the shape its it. Cause too many goodie to shoes trying to buy their way into office and dont know anything about crap. Oh and the Bribe deal. Well it openes Hawkins County eyes on how their judge was. Thank God he is in jail and can't harass and beat people and the state out of their money.

huh! we have no good roads left!!! if people would start making them repair their vehicles every time they nick the low fronts and the holes knock them out of alignment,I bet that would set a fire under their butts and we'd see some roads being paved and not patched!
