Is it true that a part of the borad of the rescue squad voted to close the rescue squad. I say lets go about this another way. Lets say the four of you that voted to close the squad go home and see if we dont end up with a better squad Dont hold it aginst the squad that your hero is behind bars.You have showed us that you dont give a damn about the ppl you only want the money

I heard they wanted to sell everything and put the money in trust so popeye could have it when he gets out. That's not legal folks.

Where are the assets that our town give to the rescue squad. I am sure that Dr. Hatfield, Dot Wyatt, John Debusk, never wanted this to happen. Do we not have a leader n our town hall who can help direct the outcome for the benefit of the town people. When our town paid them toget back the show grounds, I bet John Henry Short rolled over in his grave.

More Feds has showed up at the squad, seems they are not done yet. Can you sell off the trucks and equipment as cheap as they did. Should it not be sold at a public auction? Will somebody, anybody do something. How disgraceful.

They all benefitted from the fraud at SRS !

Meals, trips, expenses, service awards,
who would not like to go to the beach or
Pigeon Forge all expenses paid !
He simply bought their loyalty / silence.

Popeye dirtied the entire membership so they
would not oppose any of his high handed
management of the SRS and funds.

Popeye is still running the SRS from jail through
Lil Wayne and his stooges !

Feds did not charge the SRS membership in return
for favorable testimony !

The whole bunch stinks and should be replaced !

where is the judge

The people of Saltville needs for the Judge to take the assets from the present and give them back to the town (for what good it would do). We need a director of both fire and rescue who answers to the council. The citizens deserve better.

The rescue squad is a privately owned company. The assets were bought by Saltville Rescue Squad, Inc. and could be sold to almost whomever they want to. The land the building is on is owned by them. All the town did at one point was put money in the budget for them. IMO if you want a director of both go out of town and find a professional.

This is exaclty the problem !

The SRS started out as a volunteer organization.
They solictied donations, grants and periodic lump sums
from the Saltville Town Council - asserting we are a
not for profit organization.

They qualify as a tax exempt entity - but they are
actually operatiing as a for profit organization.
These profits are finding their way
into member's pockets - "Popeye" and the whole gang !

Want proof ?- Just ask someone who has been transported by SRS.
The billing is outrageous !$ 1,100.00 for a trip to
Abingdon !

Think I'll start my own ambulance service !

Are you lazy Fed's getting this ?

Most hired workers or even elected officials for Saltville should be out of towners. That way they have no bias for self serving projects.

Yes, they willing accepted all the donations, grants, money from the town. I live in Rich Valley, do you think by the time Chilhowie gets here I will have died.

Do you really think that popeye is not trying to reserve the monies for when he gets out of jail?
Wayne will have to look for another place to live
if the feds take his home and vehicle. Privately,
owned, yes by popeye and wayne. The members who voted to close should be run out of town on a rail. They are trying to cover their a##. They are worried about being sued by Popeye and Wayne, what if John Q Citizen decides to sue. Get Real
