OMG, are some of you people just out there, first off how do you bring problems to the table but offer no kind of solution. Where to start.

Peters is a good officer and whatever his wife does should not have a bearing on him as an officer, you all assume he knew she was doing something illegal. Adultery is against the law and not ever one out there knows their spouse is screwing around on them (in short for the simple minds, if you don't know about it, you cant do anything about it).

Golf cart incident, all I know is an investigation was launched the next day, all parties involved are being investigated, and as someone said the golf cart was destroyed but in fact was not destroyed it was back in service the same day.

The Johnson and Barteli incident stinks all the way around both parties seem to be in the wrong on this one, but one thing about it Barteli has several complaints against him over the last several years all by women and most of them never even knew each other. Johnson did lie on her statement and was caught in it. I have not read the investigation report.

As for the Sheriff doing a bad job, he walked into a bad situation, and is doing the best he can.

Last anyone who says their never will be a good ole boy system is lying to themselves and everyone else, It does not matter who you make Sheriff there will always be a "good old boy system" it goes on in every walk of life. Look at Obama he appointed Hilliary Clinton to Secretary (there are people more qualified but he gave it to someone he trusted who would look out for his best interest)

For those who post on here 4-5 times a day go find a life or stop being bitter ex employees.

He will axe Hardy, Ryan and Bowling, and re-organize the sheriff's office so there aren't 12 sergeants. On the down side, look for him to bring back Ricky Wright, Tim Brown, and Phil Altice.
Also, his wife didn't die of cancer...she accidentally overdosed on some medication she was taking.
Ho Hum, I thought you were smarter than that. You must have smoked some bad weed. Mr. GOLD MAN. Come on... Putnam Co will surely go down if he was the sheriff. Please go take a shower and cool off after that statement.

Ho-Hum, Explain yourself about Ricky Wright, Tim Brown and Phil Altice. Altice we all know was a little slack at times, but Wright and Brown both always did good things for this community. Neither one ever let their guard down protecting us.

Scott Simmons probably will not run because of his health. I heard he never really did much while he was under Kelly anyway. Simmons is a really nice man though, and never did anything to hurt his wife, that purely an accident.

Tim Brown took his squad car to Jacksonville parked it and took a flight, he called the SO and told him he quit. He also was Baker Acted for putting his duty weapon in his mouth, now that is a great Sheriff.

Altice has beat his wife several times and never was arrested for it, was also seen trying to pick up a 17 year old minor back in the day when he worked Patrol, another great Sheriff.

Simmons wife died in a car accident when her breaks on her car went out, ruled an accident, he got a ton of money (not saying he did it but questionable there).

Wright- Was sleeping with one of his Deputies wife's while working now that is ethics there.

None of your solutions are worth a crap, go rethink your Sheriff Champion the one who will fix all and come back and let us know.

WOW! I wonder who Maloy got in a fight with? Sounds odd to me, perhaps another lie by admin...I say another lie because that is what his whole file is since Well's became his Sgt. Which as stated before Well's has a clear history of lieing - just check the files at his previous employers, this is a FACT in writing!!! As farad everyone else it is hear say, so unless you have proof as I do it is speculation and based on that this is what one voter thinks: I always thought Simmons seemed like a good person, he at least took the time to talk to the deputies. Altice I question, I heard he pitched a fit at a vets office because there was Hardy flyers in their office last election and while Brown also seems nice if he in fact has some depression issues that makes me nervous for him to carry a side arm...
I will continue to pray and ask God for guidance and help. I know He will not give us more than we can handle and just need to keep the faith and trust in Him.

First off numbnuts, these are not my solutions, just observations. Simmons wife was NOT in a car accident. Quit watching the oxygen network and get with it. She overdosed at their residence. Wright was having sex, ON DUTY, with the wife of a subordinate, who was also a dispatcher. He was allowed to gracefully resign, and became employed in Clay County, because he was one of the chosen ones...a black male with a degree.
In no way do I endorse Simmons for sheriff. Just passing on what I heard.
If you look at the Hardy regime, they all have skeletons: Ryan was fired for being drunk and making an arrest while off duty; Bowling wrecked a patrol car while whacked out on prescription meds. Evidently, as long as you suck the right d!@k, you are forgiven.
Sorry, I call em like I see em.

Wow, there we go again. Talking about things not known. Brown did have some stress realted issues some 15 years ago. He did not put his gun in his mouth, that is a bunch of crap, talk to the guys that were there, all will tell you that is a lie. You also have to judge the man for what he with the job. I know him and you can't judge him by these issues. Go pull his records as far as job preformance and you will see why he is a good cop.

Altice never beat his wife. Stories told from the mill, and the other is just plain nonsense.

Ricky Wright did make some mistakes with another woman, along withmany other great men in our world. That mistake still does not qualify him out of being an exceptional person and a great cop.

Simmons' wife having a car accident, now proves what I am trying to say. "Tired of all the crying" you are so far out of touch, you take little parts of what you think is truth, or what you have heard and misrepresent it.

In closing hope you are never judge, but I am sure your squeeky clean.

Whew!! OK I can go with that. I thought you were having a Mac attack. Yea. Simmons is bad news. It's like I stated many time. Actually there is no one here in Putnam County that would really do what needs to be done to clean this county up. This county needs a Buford Pusser to come in, Kick ass, take names and clean house entirely. I really don't see that happening. I pray that God wuld send us someone like that. But no more damnocrats.They all need to get on the same ship with Obama and go back to where ever.

That's right, but wasn't it medicine for cancer or some sort of terminal illness? Heck, it's been 15 or 20 years since she died. Is his health back? I heard Tim Brown was running. Simmons has mad a lot of enemies over the years, I don't think the citizen's of Putnam County will be blind sided a second time. Who knows though...I know I won't vote for Simmons.

I don't recall what the deceased wife took, but he has remarried a blonde Mrs. T. I would never vote for him or even encourage anyone to consider him. He has been in and out of rehab's for the past umm...20 years. Look at him and you can tell. When he first started working at the SO he was young and just wanted to serve and protect. Like a lot of others he got drug in and hooked.

I would not vote for Simmons,Bowling,Brown or the A**hole Parker. Let's face it,we do not have much of a choice in the matter really. I am so sick of hearing campaign promises of how they ALL are going to "clean things up","take out the trash" etc,etc. They all promise this and that and that's all it is and that's where it stays. Politicians all take sensitive subjects or what bothers the people the most and use it as poltical rambling.They get into office and do pretty much nada.I voted for Hardy and I must admit I am ashamed of myself for doing such.the corruption did not cease to exist as Hardy said it would he just fell right into play.If he was not going to get rid of Pinner,Parker,Bowling and the rest of the Goof Troup,he should have just kept the others including Kelly.IOW,not much has changed!!!

I must agree with you 110% as I too voted for Hardy.....So where do we go from here???? The Republician Party need to look outside of Putnam Co and find somene that is willing to come in and stand the ground and the "GOOD OLE BOY" Regime and clean house. Oh but then there would be too many toes stepped on in the Good Ole Boy club. I passed a Deputy yesterday and that Sorry peice of dirt would not look at you and say hello after I said "How ya doing"? These people are working for us, the tax payers, and residents of Putnam Co. I am so fed up with their bullshit mannerism's that it stinks. And the Palatka Daily News will only print what they want to print. If I want to know anything I'll read the St. Augustine or Gainesville papers. I too am so ashamed that I voted for Hardy. We would have been better off keeping Kelly.( and that isn't saying much)

You all complained about things with Kelly and seems as tho you just type in another name, and print the same crap. There have been more drug busts in 1 year than in all 4 of Kellys years. Thats a WHOLE lot of drugs off the streets. Not to mention the improvements at the jail. Just imagine the locks at the jail not working for how long under Kelly and yet he didn't think they needed fixed. You know where his head was.
Things may not be perfect now but truly believe better. So many complaints about rude deputies-- have not had that exoperience since Kelly left except from his axx-kissers.
Hardy got a good start letting personal go, but can't let all go at once and still operate the dept. Lets be honest the deputies are doing pretty good job of thining themselves. There have been some real screw-ups on their own.
It's hard to change anything in this county when you have to depend on this county commission with its circle of clowns.
No doubt Hardy has had a lot handed to him, a short time to deal with them, and most of all, having to sort truth from personal opinion and pay-back. In todays world you have to have your ducks in order and able to back up and prove without a single doubt to get rid of anyone.
Always been told slow and steady gain best results.
Everyone can do a better job themselves if they are on the outside looking in and only see what they want to see. The office of sheriff does not mean that the person can do as they want, they still have strict lines and rules to follow to fire deputies. Would not want to follow Kelly's lead and make choices as to who kisses well and often, as to the ones who do the job they were hired to do.

I have counted the number of response on all of these Sheriff's post. It seems that there is roughly 90 differant post under differant names. Well over half of those post come from about 7 people. Bottom line is although they have their right to speech it seems to me they would be better off at the coffee shop than demeaning and slamming good people on both sides in a public forum. When Putnam County Residents stop celebrating failures then maybe change can occur. Until then you make us look like degenerates to the rest of the world. Congratulations on helping to build our community up. One of those guys you are talking about is going to make one of the best Sheriff's this county has ever seen.

So where in the Hardy empire does the last 2 yokels work? Or are they signed up to be campaign managers for the 2012 wannabes or the wannabes themselves. Sounds like someone trying to do some damage control for the empire..
Now being out and about I have noticed some new young green dressed deputies congregating for lunch, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, etc. They were smiling and seemed to be happy to be wearing the green and they are some good looking men flesh. Look out guys, the maneater dispatchers and the rest of the cougars are licking their chops...they're probably already making bets. Can you handle it? Ya know, new young deputies will NOT make the empire a better understood or liked agency by the people of this county. The people on these forums have either been hurt or have family that have been treated like garbage by the very people that the 2 posters above are defending.

Last time I checked, Jacksonville, Fl. wasn't part of Putnam County.
