Wow, I feel great now! The commission showed the sheriff! Now our taxes will go down, right? Plus now we don't have to worry about there being to many police officers patrolling our county, and catching some of these dope heads that are stealing everything! Nor do we have to worry that the deputies might have some quality training and be able to protect us. We are so lucky to have county commissioners that don't care about the safety, and welfare of the citizens, but instead want to slash the budget so they can spend money on the Lewisburg hippies, and the tainting pool, and every scheme that comes down the pike! Yay us Greenbrier County, we voted in some geniuses. All of you folks that was complaining about the sheriff spending your tax dollars should be at the next cc meeting to get your refunds on your taxes, because if the sheriff's budget is cut so drastically our taxes go down right? WRONG! We get more hippie projects more fly by night scams to invest in,(coal slag plant) more rainelle public pools, and more money thrown at Lewisburg hysterical society! Boy, we really won citizens!

Sorry fluff, a good sheriff knows how to deploy his men, using your existing personnel. To stop this drug problem along with the break in's. There is a person out there that will address Greenbrier Counties Crime and drugs related issues with overwhelming results.

Fluff you could have all the kings men and all the Kings horses and still would not how to cure these issues. Lets face it you were a traffic cop and have never dealt with such problems that are in Greenbrier County. That is one of many reasons retired WVSP'S make poor Sheriff's

You should get your facts right before you make some of your statements. The money going to Greenbrier Valley Theater & Carnegie comes out of the Occupancy Tax this dose not come out of your taxes.
Although by law 1/2 of these monies have to go to the Conventions Visitors Breau that in my opion is not used wisely. As far as their location, hireing and pay scale. Also spending monies for out of house servces, which could be done in house.

There should be legisative law written that the Convention Breau get no more than 1/3 of these monies and the balance go to funding for the police fire departments in the county and outside of municipulities that would allow the County Commission to give the Convention Visitors Breau no more than 1/3 of the amount they are now getting. This place is a joke.

Your repsentives could lobby and get this passed due to the special circumstances these monies are received by the county.

Monday Morning the County will hear the Sheriff's excuse for not being able to do his mandatory responsibilities. He will most probably cry and put the blame on every body and any body he can. This so-called sheriff was sent a message loud and clear. He should have known when County Commission had to take him to the Supreme Court he was going to find out that a $6,000.00 portrait wasn't going to help him in Charleston.

Sheriff,don't try to put the blame on any body but your self. Deploy your deputies around the county so for once in 3 years the people in Greenbrier County might feel safe., quit spending money foolishly,

Instead of trying to get your photo and remarks in the news, do something different for the short time you have left.
Do what you should have been doing every since you were elected to
what the people mistakenly elected you to do. Keep Your Mouth Shut, Stay off the Sauce, Quite spending Taxpayers monies foolishly
and try to think of a way to leave the Sheriffs office as quietly an you possibly can.

The county commission is not the ones hiding vehicle purchases in line purchases to hide the purchase without authorization.
The recent judges decision showed that the sheriff has had the money for the hiring of three deputies in last years budget AND in this years budget. He did not hire them>!! He kept the money! I think this is poor leadership. Why would you not hire them if you have the money budgeted and get to work on beefing up road patrol and get a drug squad manpowered. Poor leadership... You can call it what you want.!!! The commissioners are right to do what they have done. IF he is not going to spend the money and has excess put it to work in other depts. pay bills etc. Now the sheriff owes the attorney fees from his budget for the commissioners and his lawyer. Now this is doing us taxpayers a disservice!!!
I understand he now has a press conference for MOnday in front of the courthouse at 11AM< The saga continues: if as much time energy and effort was put into solving crimes and busting drug dealers as it is fighting in the courthouse (past and present)
and hauling and directing funerals the sheriff dept. could accomplish some great things.
Are we really getting what we are paying for from any of them???

Here is a fu**ing idea: Shut up! Why don't you grow a pair? Lad 31 aka..Jim Childers, you have talked enough. Now, shut up and pay the county commissions legal fees. Maybe you can sell that picture to pay them!

This is one of the best suggestions for the idiot but he is too dumb to heed an helpful suggestion. I like the idea of him selling the portrait, Although don't think it would bring anything in Greenbrier County. Just another waste of Greenbrier County Monies.

If he is stupid enough to think the people in Greenbrier County will keep him in the Sheriffs office a second term, boy is he in for a shock.

He hasn't realized yet that most of the people he talks to won't tell him that they are not voting for him because they are afraid of his retaliation. He is making the statement that his election will be in the hands of the people. Fluff can fool some of the people some of the time / But fluff you can't fool all of the people all the time. Fluff we the people will send you a message and it won't be in your favor.
