Hey Discussted, you may have a point there. We have the opportunity to "begin cleaning up" county government beginning with replacing 2 of the commissioners, Miller and Griffith. It would be a good start but until we also put Norris, Presson and Gossom in the unemployment line, it will be business (playing God, feeding egos and personal agendas) as usual.

Now how does someone in Denver, CO know about all of our upstanding public servants? Lets not forget Mr. Elmore who a couple of years ago spent more time taking his neighbors to court over his dog running lose (Mr. elmore's dog not the neighbors dog ) and killing the neighbors chickens of course the neighbor was wrong how dare anyone defend themselves or anyone else against such arrogance!!

I am qualified to speak on our "beloved" county officials because I also maintain a home in Wichita Falls and still spend considerable time there. You're right about Elmore. I believe that he thought his position would gain him some special treatment in the court and with a jury. Didn't happen. I am most disgusted with the commissioners court. They have wasted tens of thousands of dollars fighting the results of the public vote on the raises due the sheriff's office employees. Their job is to represent the public and they have taken a position against the very people who voted them in office. It's time to put Woody Gossom, Bill Presson, Pat Norris, Joe Miller and Gordon Griffith in the unemployment line.

You are right about putting some people in the unemployment line!!! It would be nice if Wichita had a "watch dog group" that would hold some of this people accountable but that seems to be part of the problem here an apathetic city..

It will be interesting to see if there will be a change of guard at commissioner's court. I particularly like the decision when they said that although you cannot set off fireworks in the city limits , you could in the country as long as you carried a 5 gallon jug of water! Yeah, that was wisdom...
