This is sad. It is so limited there for manufacturing,industrial and commerce to develop and grow. It is also sad that (if the rumors are true) that a few moronic employees cost so much loss to the employees and the community retailers.

Saw the ad for occupational therapist in Phelps. I am a board member for the KY board for Licensure and
for Occupational Therapy. Happy to see that OT is there. I have never been in OTR but serve on board because Governor request that I represent public interest.

Wheelwright is geting just what it deserves! They vote in theives and re-tards to their city government. They cant find anyone but Randy who will be their policeman and he wont even use his proper title of Chief. They praise the great god Paul Hunt Thompson For everything, they dont need any damn jobs!

I agree with exactly, immediately shunned me because of my last name and the color of my skin. I hear some people are moving to Georgia and Tennessee for jobs like Joe Caudill, Esque and Troy.

Nah, I'm Hispanic. The local mayor and stuff never said hi to me the one year I lived there. It was mostly the people at the prison that didn't like me for whatever reason.

If you are black? The Mayor of Wheelwright is a Klan member, Andy Akers has been in the Klan for 25 years that I know of! Just sayin!
You need to get a life you piece of crap all you do is get on here and slander the officials (Yes I said Officials) of Wheelwright. You can't keep them off your mind (what little mind the drugs haven't destroyed yet)So why don't you go get a job and some help and leave other people alone!!!

Sorry about your luck. If you had stayed till election time that little wormy Mayor Dandy Andy would have been kissing your ass! Ha Ha. Everyone around there are not bad people. Otter Creek has been a political job from day one! They wouldnt look twice at a well qualified person, but hire any peice of trash those local politicians spoke up for! You are better off away from them.

Here we go again. Someone is anonymously posting from a site that registers Jonesborough, TN. Wow. Who would have thought. He's got that Spring fever in the air. Now he's talking about the Official doing something to his butt? My lord. They are married men. If you are that hard up for a man, and your posts lead a lot of people to believe you are, then I understand why you're so interested in the prison. 1st Amendment rights? Where does it say that you can write lies about people? Oh you can't. That's called libel. Good try though. Go back to your hidey-hole and try to think of a good comeback. We'll see you again in a couple of weeks.

Wonder if this will hurt Troy's chance of getting back on should OCCC open back up. I thought Christmas was married. Was Troy?
