funny that the country , and this county is in such bad shape , and the city of west liberty ky, is going to start building , a two hundred thousand dollar, fire house, in the next few days, and its for the conley family, they are putting them in charge of every thing, here, when was the last time they saved a house, or had more then 3 calls a month, we dont even have gas to drive to the store , and they are building a major project from our money, they are taking, out of your paycheck, this is a small town, not a major city, but our city and county officials spend our money on crap like this, so they will have some thing to play with,bob nickell is a screw ball , and he is a drunk,

The new fire station is greatly needed. Wish some of you guys would get a life and quit complaining about everything that goes on in the county.

jdbk.....seems as if you enjoy using commas when making your point. Ever hear of something called a period? They're usually found at the end of a sentence......j/k

JDBK:

1. The new fire station has nothing to do with the county. If you halfway read the paper, you will see that the county has no part in the financial funding. The land was DONATED by Commercial Bank and the CITY - not the county - is seeking grant money for the project.

2. You are mistaken if you think West Liberty Fire Department only receives three calls a month. There have been many stories over the past few years in the paper about the many homes West Liberty Fire Department has saved. It's a good thing you didn't use your real name because YOU made need those men to pull your @$$ out of a burning building someday.

You really shouldn't run off at the mouth when you don't know what you're talking about. It just makes you look silly.:-)

i guess you think they have saved any thing worth saving, in this place,seems like we can get a big time fire house, but we cant get nothing to work at here. paying big time money, this is a sorry excuse for a city, and they will put crap , like this ahead of the peoples needs every time, and SexyRedHead , ive seen this stuff, for years go on here. if they would try to get good jobs here as much as they do this crap . then people would have something to protect! i guess you think we have a real good work wage here to. we dont have nothing here. can not even go to a decent steak house. we dont make enough money to build one. no one can afford one. all they want here. is a firestation here for a bunch of red necks driving a 50 dollar car with red lights on it going to a smoke bomb fire. oh yea i forgot . and on welfare to lol on may pop tires. with a load of children in them . racing to the fire scene!! so this is the way i see it. if you see it the other way . then you have fog lights for eyes.

I guess saving someone's house and property isn't important? WLFD firefighters receive the same top-notch training as professional firefighters anywhere else in the United States. They are NOT rednecks with radios, and ALL of them work at regular jobs in addition to volunteering their time - not just to West Liberty but to many of the other county fire departments as well.

BTW have you ever taken an ambulance ride? One of the firemen you are libeling here may well have already helped you or taken you to the hospital at some time or another. Many of them either are or have been employeed by emergency service agencies throughout Eastern Kentucky.

Our locale fire service is completely vol,these men myself included indure the same training that lex fire dept receives, the only difference is the pay check.i do agree they are alot of people on the fire depts that do not need to be there.We have to take what we can get,everyone is to busy to help their fellow man nowadays!!!!!I guess posting on a message board is fare more important than the betterment of ones community.I got an ideal, how bout we start paying these men and women.The average yearly sal of a firefighter is about $45,000 plus benifits.To pursue such a venture would require a large sum of money.Now where could we get this money for a around the clock fire dept? Mr and mrs taxpayer ofcourse. The firefighters here dont want paychecks, they just ask for good equipment to do a thankless job.But every now and then somone comes up to one of us and says thank you for getting my son out of that car wreck or thanks for saving my house.Alot of times we dont save anything,due to the fire being so far away from the station or not having a adquate fire hydrant close by,but we do what we can do.Fire burns vol the same as the big city firefighters.Over 75% of fire depts in the US are vol. the city of west liberty fire dept operates off a budget of about $60,000 a yr, by the time equipment and fuel is bought not much is left over.The county depts are lucky to get $15,000 a yr.If you dont like the way things are running come join the fire dept and lead us to the light,it seems like you have all the ansers,you selfobsored idiot.

I got 2 options for jdbk:(1) Sell your double- wide and move to a city with a full time fd, fewer rednecks, a steak house and a different town board.(2) Run for the next opening on the town council, get elected then PUT UP OR SHUT UP!

Amazing how little some people actually know about something as simple as 'LIFE'. The comments made here by a few simpletons are idiotic at best.

Looks like you could not pass the English portion of the written test...I know because I have been a Firefighter for 23 years, have a college degree, and can spell 'college'.

Looks like you have no room to judge others, especially since you have no facts to support your allegations. I will be here later this week to give you time to look up all the multi-syllabic words I used. I would not want to strain you all at once. I find it amazing that you complain about a steak house in the same sentence that you complain about your fire service. I am actually intrigued enough to see what your come back will be.

Nice way for you jdbk, to project your insecurites in your own mausculinity than try to demasculate the real men and women fighting to save the lifes and property of those in this community. We are highly trained. Several of our firefighters are certified as Firefighter I, Firefighter II, Hazoudus Materials Techniican, I do also beleive thee's a couple of us with or working towards degress in Fire Science. But let's remember we recieve no financal reembursment. Also we have volunteer firefighters here that are full time paid firefighters in near by cities. Also we have training all the time, come on by and we will show you "we are the real men" So get up off your ass and get involved or shut up. And just remember no matter how much i hate mutt's like you a day will come when you are scaried and don't know what to do and you will call 911. And the real men the Firefighters of Morgan County will answer your call fix your problem all with a smile.

Hmmm....jdbk your rants have been without a doubt some of the funniest things I've read this week. Please enlighten us as to why you think that your local fd is less then competent.

Sometimes all it takes is something new to come along, i.e. a new fire station, and the moral of the dept will improve. That inturn may motivate people to go above and beyond what is required of their dept as say minimal standards. It's like an itch...once it gets going it's hard to stop. Then more training is taken and more people join because they see that the dept is motivated. Eventually you'll see something going on in the dept. And that is company pride earned not bought. Earned because of the training that has been attended. Earned because of the hardwork that all have endured to get to where they are from where they've been.

Good luck to the WLFD....jdbk i wish you well. Oh and no one has ever stopped anyone from going out and seeking gainful employment. If a job is needed or wanted bad enough then what ever is need to get that job will be done.

Good day all.

Well dang there Cleatus!
You done sure seem to complain about a lot, but I surely don't see you takin no action!

You can take one of the following options. Feel free to choose any one, since they will make us all happy..

Just go away.

Move to an area that has full time career coverage. But that alone won't gurantee you a professional Fire Dept. I have seen career guys burn a structure down just as well as volunteers.

Join. Thats right, instead of whine and complain about a situation, join in, make a difference, and help out.

With whiny tax payers wanting more for less, our apparatus (that there is a big person word for trucks) keep getting bigger and bigger, out growing older facilities.(another big person word for building).
So until you understand the intricacies of operating a fire/rescue dept, support them, learn, or be quiet!
