I sure hope that Bubba is not our sheriff.Surly Mr. Lyons has more brains then that.I agree with How Stupid.And,if Kevin dont want the job Judge Lyons should have done alot better then that.Mr. Lyons you said you would do so much when we put you in office,have you forgot?And,if Kevin wants the job he should have it.But,again Mr Lyons we do not want Clark back in.So,you better do better then Clark and get some one that is for our city,not for friends and them self.I sure hope you read Topix Mr.Lyons.Alot of us put you in and we can vote you out in a heart beat.

I agree with you. He was in the position to make the most important decision he will have to make as County Judge. He should have at least tried to make a decision that would please the majority of the people who voted for him. Kevin ran a close race in the election. I think nearly half of the voters had already spoken as to who they wanted. Keven should have had the job. This is clearly a case of the judge showing his authority. I believe he should have consulted with the members of the Fiscal Court and gotten their input before making such a hasty decision. After this, I don't believe our judge can be trusted to do what is right, when an important decision has to be made. He is a ONE TERM Judge Exective for sure. No need to stick a fork in him. We already know that he is done!

Bella, How the heck did Kenny know what the majority of the citizens wanted, not unless you work in the court house and he asked you. The majority of voters wanted Kevin look at the election results. BUBBA didn't run so how could kenny have known who we wanted. In your post you said he made the decision the majority of us wanted. WHO IS US, the majority?

the majority is the good ole boy club, they didn't want Kevin in there, so they put Bubba who makes a decent jailor but a dumb sheriff,so the dealers could go on being protected, the whole courthouse is full of money men AND women for the dealers. I've been around Nicholas County for 72yrs, there not pulling the wool over my eyes!Kenny Lyons is the newest getting his strings pulled. it won't stop us next election though! A disgrace to an election results is all
that has happened to Mr. Booth, and us fellow nicholas countians, he deserved the opportunity! in a presidential race several years ago, a fan shouted out Give em Hell Harry, I say now GIVE
EM HELL KEVIN!!!!!
