I've been looking through some of the postings on Topix tonight and looked at some of the claims made on the sevier corruption site.

My god! Are there any honest people in sevier county? My husband and me moved here because the mountains were so beautiful and the people were so freindly. I'm learning that all the politicians look like their crooks. The concrete company gets bids to do all the work on the roads. The road commissioner hauls gravel to his buddies houses. Warren Hurst is up to his eyeballs in graft. People complain and no one listens. 2

The mountains have turned into a bunch of kindling crap cabins waiting to go up in flames. and if they do, theres no water to put the fires out because no one thoutgh enough to make builders put in fire hidrants. Roads are falling off the sides of mountains that fire trucks cant get to and no one knows anything about strom water. the water control guy is kin to a commissioner - imagine that. I'd like to see a family tree of all the politicians. If there are any branchs at all, I bet they all tie into the same trunk because the county only hires family members or kids or uncles or aunts of family members. My God, if it wernt for the county hiring all these folks, a whole generation of kin folk would be standing in the welfare office together!

Tourists that I know say they wont ever come back because its not pretty anymore and why would they come to buy plastic black bears made in china at the dollar stores. People brag about pancakes and fudge and deep fryed pig skin like its a good thing and they wonder why that the grocery store has double wide grocery buggys for there lard butted young uns.

The dog catcher does weddings that the clerks office sends his way. The DA doesn't look into anything because he's got some business in Newport that is somehow connected to the crooked county mayor who sends county work to his wifes company. The sheriff has hired a convicted embezler and gave the guy the county checkbook that bought bar be que right before the sherifs kick off campain. The sherif wont get acredited becuase then, he'd have to follow some national rules and he dont want to give up any of his power cause he's got too good a thing going what with the jail paying his campain expenses and all.

The mayor writes all the checks and gives some to his favorite charities while hes moaning about raising property taxes because he hasnt been able to manage the counties finances after 25 years. He has the county shop paint his kids cars. his uncle has a job with the county but don't do a darn thing.

tHe ethics committee was picked by the mayor but they wouldnt know an ethic if it ran up and smaked them on the side of their face. getting to many complaints? Well boys lets only meet every once in a while maybe the complaintents will forget we exist and not complian anymore.

One of the Partons has 2 full times jobs. The county planner has 3 jobs. No one knows who has jobs because there isnt a personal office and there isnt a finance office and no one knows anything except the mayor because hes got the checkbook in his office.

Oh, and the building inspector hasnt ever inspected a building. But that don't matter because there aint no building codes to check into anyway!

What the heck have you people been up too? Dont you believe in honesty? You all talk about being good Christians but from where I stand, you're all a bunch of crooks who have allowed the most crooked ones of all to run the whole darned show.

Wake up! Your all being led to the slauter house with grins on your faces while the bosses poke you with cattle prods to speed up your killing!

No honest politicians here. Waters won't allow it. Might catch off and people get used to it.

Bakers dozen....the residents of Sevier County have voted all these crooks..the county comm, city comm, the sheriff, city mayor and county mayor in office. Until the residents take charge and QUIT electing these crooks back in office...NO FAT CHANCE of change.
Myself, I have not voted for one that hold an office in Sevier county..and will never.

Boy did you step in it. When you start comparing masons and white caps, as you have tried for over a year, you show just who you are. A worthless piece of trash. But you are lucky. In the old days you would have been hunted down and whipped for such remarks. You are safe hiding in the internet. Hiding like the coward you are. But I and others have a good feeling who you are and how you are accessing the net to post your hate filled messages. Just by posting this you are in violation again. I take pleasure in senting all the WOW permalinks to the editor for removel. Has anyelse noticed that in the past year, this forum has had no post with a "Dandridge" address. It starts just after Joel got Mikey removed yet again.

Edna, I like your comments, where the devil have you been up to now?

Log on, Edna, to www.Titlesearchers.com and yiou can really see how Warren Hurst manipulated his position (as he first married into the highway department when father-in-law was superintendent, Sam Ellis) and has since worked there - how many years has that been? He is assigned, I am informed to the Planning Offfice is is practically his own boss, this giving him an opportunity to be the bagman for all those business partners who have 'swarmed him' through these years, giving him POA's, he being the 'cook, the carpenter and the candle-stick-maker' who makes these 'operations' go round and round!

While you're in the records, check back to 1993
and you'll see not so many of 'chickens' were hatching in front of our eyes, but about 2000 forward many friends in 'high places' have seen the light of day and partnered up for the big advantage!

Check them out - bankers, teachers, investors utilizing services of the county via roadbuilding,
material supplies, while keeping certain commissioners busy hauling dirt, excuvating, all
shoveling money into the deep pockets - talk about giving a hand to the economy - no other person has done so much and given so little credit to making 'thanga' work in this County -
let's all give him a big hand - come to the Board of Commissioner meeting and watch him perform!

Should we give him a standing ovation or haul him out to the county line and send him off into Cocke County with the dogs sicked on him?

Warren always seems to be the first one to start squaking when anybody says anything against the commissioners. I guess he thinks he is larrys pit bully but he is all talk. He's got some secrets, a bunch of them. He's runnin scared somebody might hang him out to dry.

Yes it does. Like I've said "throw the rascals out!" I wonder if they can be impeached? Does anyone know?? Some sort of impeachment, maybe getting a signature sheet going around?? I do not know..does anyone in Topix know or ever heard of anything like this?

I believe this sevier county rhetoric is too true. The scary part is that it only gets worse as you break it down by city. Specifically Gatlinburg. I've was coming up here for 25 years before moving here a year and a half ago. Now I see that the reason "progress for the beautification of Gatlinburg" does not really happen unless it is going to line some relatives pockets with a job or benefit a friends business. Don't get me wrong, there are some good things that happen to slip through the cracks and benefit all, but until the 10 families that seem to own and run everything from businesses to the political offices, we will all feel the pain of nepotism.

What 'defenses' is Lil Freddie making to the truth exposed on nepotism by SevierCorruption.com ?

Is there a defense?

The facts are the facts, and that's what it's all about - the truth is needing exposure and the light of day, Too bad that every citizens in Sevier County doesn't have access to the internet and this webpage - hearing about it just isn't a substitute for seeing it - who will be next?

Edna, looks like you need to go back to where you came from. It seems you were much happier there. Also, it looks like you might want to go back to school there, too (proofread your blog and you'll see what I mean)! All smiles, water girl
