O my my. This is a prime example of why mike was on the ballet for over 15 years. Elkhorn in my opinion has made a bad decision by voting him in as mayor. We don't need a little boy who constantly threatens lawsuits. This is what like......... Three times. Shame on you and ur conduct mayor. SHAME SHAME SHAME. U EMBARRASS URSELF AND THE TOWN BY THESE STUPID ANTICS.

That's like when we went to court it was suppose to be over but he won't leave me alone. New Years Eve, I have my step-son and his girlfriend, whose was on home incareration here, you know her the pregant girl that was caught doing suboxzone. I was sick and getting ready for and upcoming surgery. Because I didn't agree with my step-son he attacked me< must been on something good. knocked me out and when I awoke I called the police. While Joey was here and I was ouside Mike Taylor called and was over heard by Clinard Stewart age 90, Kim Wallace and my step-son telling Joey to haul my sorry ass to jail. And I didn't do anything except get the crap beat out out me. I think the Law should do it's job and the Mayor do his

Oh got one more good one for the dear topix readers I am a bad diabetic and lost my toe and part of my foot in feb. I was in the hospital 11 days with staff and came out with pic lines in my arm. At 1 o'clock in the morning Curt Rowe came and arrested me for being 15 days late of my fines. People, I want to live in the town and grow old like my faher-in-law but THE SAME DAY OUT OF THE HOSPITAL I WAS ARRESTED AND IT TOOK $17 FOR ME TO GET OUT. I have the resources and friends Senators and such in the family who will help me at every turn to do more for the town that is dying before our eyes. Mike remember when we use to run track together and other school activies. I am now humbling myself down and asking you to please let me live my life in peace. I got one more surgery and it will consist largly a big part of my leg. You have done some good things for Elkhorn City. But Open your mind alittle to some ideas from council members and others who are not so new to this. Don't get mad if a good idea come up and it's not yours.I'm not asking to be your best buddy just please let me live in peace. Loosing the back chamber to my heart and all these other medical issue I still got some good advice to help this town and friends on federal level willing to help.

that's not a way to want to be remembered and I'd be mad if mike was judging me for no reason too. Just saying.

My wife just wants to be left alone. Maybe down the line, I will be able to contribute to the development of Elkhorn City. I wrote alot of grants in Clintwood and I really do know how to write these things. Big Sandy does excellent work but there must be some meat on it for them and whichever engineering firm to make a profit. I know how to bypass these middle people and bring more to the town. Please Don't misunderstand me Big Sandy has done so much for this town alone with summit engineering. But in my opinion we have a local union (Local 14581) USWA that we should be trying to use more on these projects. But you know what the saying is about opinions.

the whole thing is a sad statement about elkhorn city!
i dont live in the city, but i "use" the city daily, post office, bank, library, stores, park....i consider myself a citizen even though i live outside voting area.
mike, what is your major malfunction???
honestly, you cant give a statement to a reporter? just say, i have no comment at this time on the matter.
and the "harrassment" will stop.
all they want is a few words to put in their story.
if i were trying to run a city and i couldnt take three seconds out of my day to ponder an answer to a question, i would seriously have to ask myself if i was fit to do the job!!!
you are making elkhorn city look worse than it already does.
why piss off the one newspaper in the area who might actually cover elkhorn city events?
not all of the citizens here agree with you, and by the way, as a taxpayer, i think its laughable and sad that you choose to use the county attorney in the way you have!!!
taking action against a reporter....for trying to do his job, heres some advice mike, do your job.
get on the phone and find some carnival who will come sit up here for the 4th of july, or at least for next apple blossom, find some events to bring people into the city to spend money and not go elsewhere.
apple blossom was such a waste, has been for a few years now, someone needs to know how to be an event planner.
really mike, you are digging yourself an even deeper hole to jump into.
