Sha-zam! The Dispatch leaves out his party affiliation but his daughter has a myspace page full of anti-Obama and even one picture that's quasi-racial. Scroll down to the right. I found this from googling: "ronald rawlins" "south webster." Also, this trustee is a reverend as well. Just another one of those poseur Republicans who act like a pillar of the community while conspiring to rip it off. http://www.myspace.com/josiebranham09

There are two Ronnie rawlins in Webster. One is a preacher, one is a trustee. The preacher works at the juvenile prison in Franklin furnace.

JSB, you need to get a life and leave my sister alone. She has never done a thing to you and neither has my dad. You need to get a job, move out of your mommy and daddy's basement, and stop looking a child porn.

I wonder who contacted the Sheriff's office back in March to allege that Mr. Rawlins was stealing - could it have been another Township Trustee (of questionable character)? Perhaps it would be a good idea for the Sheriff's Department to conduct a thorough investigation of all Township Trustees who held office any time over the past ten years. As a matter of public trust, we should demand that all Trustees sign sworn statements divulging whether they have also stolen from public funds (or if they have stolen from from anyplace else over the years!). Yes, as public servants, the other Trustees should also be investigated to see if there is a systemic institutional problem for which Mr. Rawlins has been singled out.
Rumor has it that one of the biggest liars in Scioto County lives in South Webster and serves the public in the same capacity that Mr. Rawlins served - was this the tipster to which the Columbus Dispatch article referred?( http://www.dispatch.com/live/content/local_ne... )

GET IT RIGHT BEFORE STARTING RUMORS! THE TRUSTEE THAT IS A THIEF IS NOT THE PREACHER RONNIE RAWLINS! HIS ONLY DAUGHTER IS PAULA WHICH IS A GOOD PERSON. HE HAS ONE LIVING SON NAMED RONNIE THAT IS NOT A TRUSTEE & ONE DECEASED SON NAMED ROGER!!!!! LEAVE THIS FAMILY ALONE!

first of all Justice why single out trustees... any person serving an office should be investicated. and made to sign... I dont think its very fair that 1 person does wrong and you all start blaming everyone else for it.. he is a big boy and should pay as a big boy....and i dont know any of the trustees but if they did turn him in they were just doing their jobs

One of the other trustees in the same township is talking about resigning. Hmmm, it looks like he's getting scared. He should be. Just so all you people in Bloom Township know, Duane Hagen gets his medical insurance through the Township, so each month money is taken from the Township for his insurance even though he owns his own insurnace place. So, every month, money is taken from funds for the road repairs and mowing of the cemeteries. Nobody knows about that but now they do.

The reason nobody knows about it is because you just made it up out of thin air!! This goes to show that anybody can just make up anything they want and put it on here. I was at a meeting when this was discussed and there is no trustee in Bloom Township that is having his insurance paid by the township. Duanes wife works at the school and their insurance is through the school. So, That being said, I will let him know about this (and getting your ip adress is no problem) and in the mean time you need to be looking up the word defamation. And I have talked to all three of the trustees and none of them is talking obout ressigning. So, which one are you talking about when you say one is talking about resigning? You just as well make up a few more things while you're at it and still hiding behind your screen name.

Oh now I understand after reading the 4th post that you are Ronnies daughter. Does that give you the right to fabricate things and put on here? I don't think so...... but I will check on that one too.

Duane Hagen did get his insurance through the Township. Ever hear of Freedom of Speech. I can say whatever I want to say. I heard someone was resigning, so if I want to repeat what I heard, I can.

ok haha now thats better, DID GET and GETS has two different meanings. Did get (which means "in the past") is true. "Gets" which is what you said in the previous post is a lie. Duane "Did get" health insurance paid and so did your dad and several others in the past. THAT won't get you into trouble because you are allowed to do that, in other words that is "by the book". So what is your point now that you are no longer lying? Now back to the topic, stealing gas will get into trouble and will put you into jail! THAT is not by the book and illegal in any legal book. And on the resigning part, the only trustee that I heard about resigning happened back in march, it was your dad. I called Duane and and told him about you and he only said "bless her heart".

Duane didn't say that, however I will check with him to make sure..........now back to your post, your dad should have had his health insurance paid through the township instead of stealing gas from them. One will get you in jail... the other one won't...now sit back and think about it......do you know which one will and which one won't? Oh by the way... the fish was biting, caught two nice bass and six blue gill!! Its been a great day! I went fishin AND got your dads post back at the top of the page!! Like I said... I can do this all night long!! LOL

Yeah, cause you're on welfare and don't work so of course you can sit and play on the computer all night. If you think you're bothering me, you're not. I've been through a lot worse than talking to a nobody on the computer.
