Well this may not sit good with alot of you, but here it is. I have just been setting here reading and thinking about the things on Topix about Hancock County and I have seen several great topics that was good and uplifting for people. Then I ran across some of the drug, court house, who done who, type threads and I just felt like starting this comment. So pleas read on. If we as a county, state, and nation would turn back to God, for our problems and not blame one another we might make some progress. If we would pray instead of fuss and cuss imagine what that would do, I don't mean just whisper some thoughtless prayer, I mean get down humble where God could use us. Church has became that building on the roadside that alot just drive by, it has no meaning to many today like it used to. If we would take the time to enter the doors and just listen and let God work in our lives we could clean our little town up. Now I know someone is saying your stupid it can't work. Your right it can't, not with that attitude God has a hard time working in your life. All that it takes is one act of kindness from one to make a difference in anothers life. We all hold a key to making a difference but each one of us unlocks a different lock and it takes us all to get the job done. Sneedville is a small town it feels out of control, but its like this everywhere you look. We just live in a everybody knows everyone town so it makes it seem even worse. If we want change I promise you if we as a county would turn back to God and take the time to listen change can come. We always want change now, not later. Change and improvement takes time. God Bless. Thanks for taking the time to read!!

You're right. It starts with us and our relationship with God. And when we do right, each day, as we should if we are followers of Christ, we set an example for others. While we may not be able to change those in office we believe to be corrupt, but we can work towards the election of competent, righteous people. Satan wants us to give up on making things better in this life. But Christians are the kingdom and Christ is reigning and we should act accordingly. It will make a difference.

How about by starting with picking up all the trash along the sides of the roads. Need to start writing fines. It looks awful in any direction coming into sneedville. How hard is to take your trash to a garbage bag? It makes the whole county look nasty. Does your homes look like this on the inside or outside? Disgraceful laziness. It looks worse than I have ever seen

How about removing the hookers from the court house as well as the drug dealers there! And the state steeping in to remove the children of these pill poppers running around town.

It would be nice to drive through town and not have to look at that. No loitering can't the city enforce that. Our city maor Mr rhea needs to hire a city officer to handle that problem. That should not be up to our sheriff dept. Get off your pot and hire a city policeman. Why has this not been done? O I had a memory loss for a moment.....politics would he against leamon in the last election. Get some BA lls. Sucking and blaming sherif dept. Or is it becuz of your family afraid they might be caught whatever someone should have ran against you and all the aldermen what a f n joke

Have you even considered how hard it is to keep drugs out of the Jail? It is a constant fight!!!! Do you think the Sheriff would not like to be able to put out work crews, but how do you keep their familys and friends from leaving them little drug gifts on the side of the roads??????? Do you not realize that every time someone is brought into the jail that they have every orfice on their body stuffed full of drugs!!!!! There is not an opening on the human body that these druggies have not found a way to stuff drugs into!!!!!! NO ONE COULD WATCH THEM CLOSE ENOOUGH!!! They dig holes between the blocks in the jail wall that is constantly having to be fixed. Get real this is the devil in action (DRUGS)!!!!!!

i think first things first. the kids need a skating ring, bowling alley, arcade, something to occupy them now before the next generation is on the town square just like the ones before them and them. second we need equal laws and the discrimination of one name should have same and equal treatments. third jobs should be as equal and instead of hiring last years quitter this years average joe should get his or her opportunity to prove worthiness. fourth we should be allowed to hang in town without getting labeled especially if that's all Sneedville is going to offer us. and fifth I think the rich that keeps getting richer should put in a word for us the people and not pocket the change to help change as in somewhere our teenagers can go have fun and it not be about drugs and alchahol. who agrees?

sounds good but real world drugs have done taken over here also most of the u s. Other places have all those things mentioned and why do they have drug problems crime. It starts at home need decent parents that care about families prayer having meals together . Not divorcing marriage should be sacred no abuse cheating be good to each other and raise decent children. Look at a hundred years ago people respected each other disciplined their kids. Prayed together ate meals together worked on farms went to church helped there neighbors. Everybody was poor but they had riches most had something to eat family friends and God. Prayer was in school everyday. At home and the parents weren't high divorced or putting their kids off on someone else so they could go have a big time. Selfish people now all any one thinks about is their self. We are destroying life as we have known little each second. Society excepts everything now alot that was not and should not be excepted. So stop trying to fix things by saying what if we had this or that. Its what each individual has in their heart its right with us all. Seek and you shall find. We are all responsible for the way the world is now

Bring back barbaric punishment that's all that's going to work
sounds cruel but can you come up with something any better. Or just kill them it will get rid of a lot of expense and problems. Starting with the Dr that writes scripts that they know aren't really needed. Fix that and you fix America. We are way to compassionate and overlook to much bad. And need to stop excepting everything like gay marriage
