wonder how much each of those bales would cost if you had to buy them... and I highly doubt it costs six grand to mow a field, hell after a few mowing you could buy a friggen tractor.

Something ain't right about this and I would be willing to bet dollars to donuts that Mr. Carroll is a good friend of the "judge".

The hay was worth at least $3,000. Any farmer would tell you that they would cut it for about $500, so Wallace gave away at least $2,500!!!! You can cut hay 2 or 3 times a year, so that is $5,000 to $7,500 he either gives away or pockets (but we can't "prove" it so HE says). When the Feds hem up Mr Carroll on charges, he will rat on you Charlie! Look what happened to David Blair! He just spread a little gravel! I hope they charge Charlie with federal vote buying! The Feds give money to the jail, the hay was on jail property, Mr Carroll is a voter, Mr Wallace is an elected official, the election ballot has Federal elections on it, all of this equals Federal Charges! Get the FBI involved! I would love to see Charlie in Federal Prison!!!

Not a fan of Wallace but not sure that your federal claim would hold up entirely. The jail and the property it sits on and surrounding it is owned by the county not the state or federal government. Yes the jail receives federal money, but the likely hood of them getting involved is slim. If anything they will stop the funding. As far as vote buying I doubt it would hold up. Every political figure head has at some point in time while in office done something nice for someone that is a voter. Maybe I am wrong maybe I am right. I don't know, but hopefully the truth comes out either way.
Good Job

Charlie has been doing an excellent job of holding things together. The county would suffer without him.

You must not have followed the David Blair case from Elliott Co. He put county owned gravel on peoples driveways with county owned trucks, but because Elliott Co recieved Federal Funds(only $10,000 for the year), it became a Federal Case. He and his son are both going to prison because of it. His son got a Federal vote buying charge and dad pleaded guilty to converting the property of others to his own use Trust me, it does stick. That is exactly what Charlie did, converted the property of others to his own use!

Charlie next time just offer it up for bid and give the $ to the jailer or sheriff to help run our county. A person cound bid for the hay for about 5 years, wouldnt have to do it year by year. Why throw away money with our county officers needing it bad.
Hmm

Then Wallace couldn't pocket the money!

Either you are very uninformed or dumber then hell, Charles has screwed the citizens of this county for years. I for one am glad to see the TRUTH come out and hope he gets what he deserves.

okay answer this one, the property the hay came off of belongs to the county right, so the hay on that property belongs to the county so has Charlie given away county property??? Is this legal? If it isnt legal can we make Charlie pay the county back for it..........maybe out of his own pocket and the ones he says "knew" about it and went along with him on it? I may be wrong but I think the ole boy owes the county some money here. Sounds like we need to dig LOT deeper in the workins of Carter County.
downsizing

We need to get on video #8 and tell charlie, sodbuzzard and greenhill that the money from the hay is needed right now for RW and Casey. We also need to tell them we're voting YEAH to downsize the government and fire them and we'd have lots more money to give to RW and Casey. Really, one man (Brad) would be enough to do that job for the whole county.

Does he stand behind Jail decision? Seams he is making a lot of the wrong decisions for Carter County. I been thinking this land the hay was on was bought to build the Jail on right? The money to pay the payment is figured into the profit and loss of the Jail. So why is the hay not property of the funds of the Jail??
Hmmm

he said it would cost $6000 to mow.we got county workers already on the payroll.we got tractors and bush hogs and mowers.so it wouldnt cost very much at all to keep mow.

Why cant the jail inmates keep it mowed.A good old fashioned push lawn mower and a rake should do it plus keep them busy. Maybe if a few of them do a little manual labor it might teach them a lesson about staying out of jail. Better yet how bout a few billy goats LOL
