Why it it that Lawrence County Citizens have to read about this in an out of area newspaper. Could it be that the times Mail is in the pocket of county officials and condones corruption? All of the local officials contacted denied any knowledge that this was happening. Are the Commissioners and Councilmen sharing in Hawkins profit or are they just stupid and inept. Wouldn't an honest governing body know what is going on in their own county. Good old boy politics as usual, and Lawrence co. is the most corrupt of all, present, past and future. The good ones get drummed out.

The problem with the Times -Mail is all the news is "canned news"---they check with all the CITY FATHERS before they publish anything!! It should be called the "THE BEDFORD REPUBLICAN TIMES MAIL! Do you know what I mean????

Bedford is the most corrupt place I have ever been. It is not surprising to me in the least that they don't report certain things, or when they are at last forced to report them, they under report. So now, we have the Ex-Matron, Her father in law the ex-sheriff, one of his right hand men, and now I am seeing and Ex-Mitchell Cop/Lawrence county Jailer was arrested for battery on an inmate. Proves all of my long standing theories about this sick twisted place!
