Enough is enough!! When is our wonderful County Commission going to do something about Ms. Lisa Cavender? She is out of control. Several weeks ago she had a meeting with some of her staff and went as far as printing off the definitions of words such as "employee", "supervisor", and "boss", so that she could let everyone know just where they stood. What grade is she in?? Is this the worst thing she has done? Not hardly. Her employees are scared to death of her, and scared to death to say anything about or against her. Unfortunately, none of them can come forward for fear of being terminated which is more than a scary thought in the present economy.

Ms. Cavender does not play well with others. When questioned about anything concerning her department she becomes immediately defensive. Perhaps someone should print off the definition of "elected official" to remind her that she answers to the public. If she didn't want that duty, maybe she shouldn't have run again. I have witnessed Ms. Cavender in action. She is defensive at all turns, and I can't help but observe that it appears to be because she has a complex. Don't know what that could be since she is "boss". Nevertheless, she has one.

Historically, no one ever wants to do anything about a tyrant until it's too late. Looks like that may be the case here. Someone needs to give her employees some relief. Someone needs to take a hard look at her employee turnover rate. Someone needs to give a damn.

You should have been at the budget committee last week. When asked about some money she had in one her line items that she receives as a fee from defendants going to court. This money IS NOT county money but she made it a point THREE times to let the budget committee know that this money was used at the CLERKS DISCRETION. Computers and upgrades is what the money is for, but when asked about spending some of the $100,000.00 in that line item to upgrade a system in Juvenile Court she still stated "CLERKS DISCRETION." If I am not mistaken, is she not the clerk of the courts??? Why is the money coming out of Judge Glover's budget to make this upgrade??? This could have saved the county $11,000.00. But then again as she stated THREE times to the budget committee, "It's to be used at the CLERKS DISCRETION. In other words, she said no.

I feel extremely sorry for the ladies that work under Ms. Cavender. I hope her antics bite her sooner than later. Turnover is out of control in her office. Currently she has 3 positions that are not filled and cannot keep anybody in her office. The one's that are there are only there because they HAVE to have a job.

It is about time the public sees what she really about.

I mean, what is our County Commission for? They can't force her to use her "discretion" to save the county money???

The post from July 29 speaks about Ms. Cavender & the way she treats employees & the hand she has over them, well there is another "Boss" in Springfield like this as well. She too is held to a "higher society" being a member of everything in Springfield & leading one of the home health agencies here in Springfield, her husband is a well known man who is from the Springfield community! It is so very sad that some people get on such a power trip that they tend to stomp on people along their way up the ladder!!!! Just saying!

It is a shame the the Springfield newspaper will not report the news of Robertson County. If it had you would know that the clerk has been sued because of $10,000. to $12,000. of bond money that was stolen from her office by Fletcher Long and his law firm. Carrie Gasaway (the judges wife) who is also in the law firm was also involed and sued. The Robertson County Times only prints the news that it wants you to know. If you want to know the real story go to the clerks office and ask about the civil case in which the clerk and Fletcher Long ,Eddie Farmer and Carrie Gasway have been suied.

The Robertson County Times will never report anything negative about the Circuit Court Clerk, maybe they need to explain why!!!

Dorothy and Dick, both of you are right on the money. When Lisa Cavender was brought before the ethics committee. I know for a FACT that the Times had the story to repor, but they chose not to do it. Why did they not report it??? Who knows! Surely the voters will find her out before next election and vote her out. She has let this position go straight to her head and she really thinks she's something. If she knew just half of what her employees say about her, she would fire the rest of them. Especially those in the Courthouse right in front of her nose. HA HA...

We haven't had free press in this country in years. They print what they're told to print. They didn't report none of the lawsuits that was against the sheriffs dept either. Or the missing money from the budget no ones ever found out what happened to.

Well, it appears that our Circuit Court Clerk is at it again. She suspended (without pay) one of her employees last week for attending a meeting she was invited to by the DA and the Judge. I bet the EEOC would chew her up and spit her out over this one. This woman has got to be stopped. Does being a public servant mean you have no accountability to anyone - not even the taxpayers that pay her salary? I don't think so.

She is very sneaky and allegedly takes payoffs by attorneys. There all corrupt and Cavendar even always fake court orders to be filed. Its a very crazy court. Ask them what cars they drive then you know where the money goes.

Clerks have nothing to be crooked about. They stamp and file documents; take filing fees and answer phones. They don't make actual decisions about your case.

Well, another one bites the dust in Cavendar's office. One of the best employees she had. Now what is the problem? We all know for sure Ms. Cavendar couldn't possibly have done anything wrong! She still has not explained why she has had the largest employee turnover in any office. There has to be something terribly wrong.

The tongue is the most dangerous weapon available to humans. All of you people who are NAMING individuals and families and accusing them of doing various things, i.e., drugs, affairs.........do you have any idea you are opening yourself up for libel suits, but worst of all, true or not, you are hurting many, many people. ALL members of any one family are not bad and even if they are, why is it your job to point it out?... and let's give a little grace, mercy and benefit of the doubt. After all, we all expect that when we make mistakes. PLEASE stop this venom that is being spewed at individuals in our community.

It's the same people in there every day. Let's hear some names? I think you all are full of it. They are clerks, they push paper. Get real.
