You know I have lived here 16 yrs and although I do see all the notices in the classifieds, I do not recall EVER seeing a notice( let alone a whole story) on the front page about these auctions. Maybe the editor being replaced is not such a bad thing after all. Maybe now we will be privy to the REAL news.

I do still buy the 75 cent paper with old news in it as was very much suprised.

You get the run around because Chief Aikens gets to see if he wants any of the property first. He gets to pick over it and then the rest of us can bid on it after that. It's a I scratch when you scratch sorta thing. Ya know?

You're saying Fred Chaney gives top Deputy Aikens first pick on properties and then bids the leftovers. I guess that explains why Chaney's bonding company is the only company the county jail allows anybody to use. Something stinks.

Just for the record, the Criminal Court judge (E. Eugene Eblen at present) determines which bonding companies serve the county/district. Loudon county uses Chaney Bonding & City Bonding, owned by Andy Kirkland out of Roane Co. Phone numbers for both are posted by the phones in the jail.
lost and found

TCA directs Criminal Court judge to determine which bonding companies are used. TCA also calls for posting of contact numbers for bondsmen in the jail. Fred Chaney & his mother do own CHaney Bonding; however Ron Johnson, Bobby, Sr's brother runs it. Andy Kirkland from Kingston operates City Bonding Co.

I just called City Bonding Company in Kingston and asked them if they could post a bond at the Loudon County jail. They told me to call Chaney Bonding Company, because they had nobody who could come do it. It sounds like a monopoly for Chaney to me.

Wow! The Clerk and Master, Fred Chaney, is part owner of Chaney Bonding Company?
Those people down at Sugar Limb are going to spank that butt if you don't stop saying such things!

TCA 40-11-128. Certain persons disqualified as bondsmen.—
The following persons or classes shall not be bail bondsmen or agents of bail bondsmen or surety companies and shall not directly or indirectly receive any benefits from the execution of any bail bond: jailers, attorneys, police officers, convicted felons, committing magistrates, municipal or magistrate court judges, CLERKS OR DEPUTY CLERKS, sheriffs, deputy sheriffs and constables, and any person having the power to arrest or having anything to do with the control of federal, state, county or municipal prisoners.

So if the law prohibits Chaney as the appointed clerk and master from profiting from the procedes of a bonding company yet he owns the company wouldn't that make a crook?

Everyone in Loudon around the court house and the annix know all too well that Fred spends way more time at his bonding company across the street than he spends in the clerks office.

If the facts of this matter are true, then the district attorney shoudl bring charges against Chaney immidately.

Oh, never mind. Chaney and Russ Johnson are good buddies.

It never ends in Loudon County.

Prior to becoming DAG, Russell Johnson was the county's delinquent tax attorney. He had to work with Chaney.
No, the junta never ends here. It's like the Energizer bunny.

Well have you seen who the new tax attorney is now? Russ Johnson's tit baby, Terry Vann. Russ even goes out of his way to help old Terry hide his property from the IRS so that they can not attach it because the honest judge has not paid his income tax to the IRS. It's a shame that we have to pay our tax and Terry don't. The joke is, he is the delinquent tax attorney and he was appointed by Estelle Herron. I am sure she has sent Terry's property tax to be collected in the past. I saw that written about before on these blogs. What a joke.

Actually, Vann is no longer the county tax attorney. He was dismissed several months ago.

The county tax attorney is now Paula Hamm.

Van there was a delinquent property tax list in the News-Herald for several weeks now and Terry Van is listed as the tax attorney. If Paula Hamm is the new tax attorney, then why is her name not listed. It very clearly says Terry Van. I saw the same tax list today in the paper and Van the man was listed. If this is not true, Estelle needs to get in touch with the News-Herald and let them know that.
