AJ is a very intelligent man that although does well for himself, is not going to spend $5,000 for an "attorney" to try to dog this issue further. The only real honestly here is when the Cash Committee started asking for reciepts and accountability, they got fired by a few city employees that happen to have husbands or relatives on the Dyess Town Council. Anything they do stinks and noone in the Cash Family or with any good reputation will try to help them after making all of that money disapear without a trace. Frankly, I am very sorry to see this happen! Dyess was once a very nice town with tons of great, hard working people in it. Today, it's just plain ol' crap!!
you are so so right. It makes me sick yhe way things have turned out.I hope it all comes back and bites them in the a##.they have detroyed all hopes for dyess. they try to blame it on all those hard working and decent people,but we know the truth of the matter.but when they start bashing all these good people it makes me really mad.

from what i hear the committee disbanded themselves but i bet if they show up the council would be more than willing to work with them to build dyess days back up. I have heard 4 of them say they would work with any of the members of the committee as long as it was understood that the council would have final say, they are the ones after all whose "asses are on the line" according to all those who want to sue them. This will however, not happen because PRIDE will not let any of the people involved in this mishap let go and start over. And im talking about from BOTH sides, the council or the committee.

I spent hours, dollars, and a huge amount of time helping Dyess climb back up and I lost BIG! I spent time and money when I really didn't have much of either to help, because I BELEIVED in their mission! I even recruited Johnny Cash's son, John Carter Cash to help out and he even did a free concert with his friends and family to help Dyess raise money! Bam, no one knew where the money went again and the committee was disassembled over night! Lots of hard work down the drain! Now they get to have a Gene Williams Memorial Building! Lots of luck maintaining interest in that over the years folks. I hope Dyess sees better days ahead, I really do! Robbie

Just typing here to continually perpetuate the cycle of this fact driven assault on the ass backwards "leadership" of Dyess! The Cash project may have amounted to something instead of the self promotion of a entertainer in Branson that most people have never heard of. He would show up in a rented limo and blow his own horn , all to no avail. Johnny Cash was the real hero of Dyess! Now, all we have are his memories from a few old timers who claim to have known him and an old building that will always lay in ruin, thanks self promotion and forgetting the true success and rags to riches story of John R. Cash and his family!

I drove through there to visit some friends about a month ago and not much has changed outside of the "Gene Williams Colony Circle." But there is some hope in seeing that the ASU is taking over! No more, "ooops, can't find the money or ticket stubs from this concert and that donation and, and...Would love to see this finally come around! There are some really great people in Dyess and a lot more drugs and welfare than ever!
