What does everyone think about the fire department using the facilities for BINGO seven nights a week? How about them letting patrons smoke even though we have a smoking ban? Is that family going to monopolize that fire station forever?

I just wonder how long a community is going to sit back and watch one family take over and entire fire department for their own financial gain. I would love to see every penny made and every receipt for things bought. I would bet that you won't find that it was all spent on that little fire department. It has paid for nice vacations and gambling sprees for the Crawford family and the sad part is both of the women are teachers. How sad is that?
You obviously do not know what you are talking about yellowjacket!! Bingo is only held at the fire department 4 nights a week and only two of those nights belong to the fire department. Monday and Tuesday night is Letcher County C.A.R.E.S. program's nights. Do you even know the Crawford family? Do you honestly think they don't make any money of their own?
That fire department started out as nothing and because of the hard work put in by the people running it and devoted members and boardmembers it has been expanded and remodeled. And check the laws on the smoking ban because it doesn't apply to the fire department. Get your facts straight before you start gossipping.

fire departments wouldn't need bingo if the county and state gave them more money. bingo makes money for the fire department no doubt. i reckon the MVFD recently purchased the jaws of life to expand their services and this apparatus is very expensive. the MVFD doesn't have a problem reporting to fires that i know of. where's the proof? what is the deal with all of this?

Everyone in Mayking knows to call the Neon VFD if there is trouble because Crawford and his bunch are either playing bingo or poker or are too sorry to get out of the bed for calls. If they do show up, they make sure all the work is done by Neon before they get there.

i don't see u going down to join the fire dept if u r so worried then y don't u get off ur a$$ and do something for ur community instead of complaining about it?? how do u suppose a fire dept should make money to buy their equipment and train their firemen? they sure don't get enough from the state. LOL i'm sure the people at MVFD would like ur input if you have a better idea. they are the ones working anyway. go join people - it's a VOLUNTEER fire dept what would make u people happy??? if they closed the whole thing down and mayking didn't even have a fire dept at all?

I agree that we should appreciate our men and women who volunteer thier time to make Mayking a better and more safe place for all of us to live. My hat is off to them, just not the sorry losers at the mvfd. You are only as good as your leader and look who their leader is. Good point on the homeowners insurance. People of mayking deserve better.

There was once a fire less than 3 miles away from the Mayking Fire dept, and sandlick got there before them and Whitesburg... Obvisouly they think they have more important things to do. And the whole Crawford family are just down right rude... I've been around them many of times and they think there better than everyone its BULL!
