King has made cut backs forcing the police department to ...

you people are dumber than a coal bucket filled with sh&t. That's why they say people from Tennessee are stupid, because of idiots like you all. Greeneville officers are overpaid eh? Tell ya what, wear a bullet proof vest and carry a gun everyday and then you can see what it's like. Oh, that's right you're probably too dumb to get hired, or you have a felony, or your baby mama keeps you in court for your back child support. At least i know most of the topix crowd isn't going to vote, because you idiots surely don't have the smarts to read or write.  (May 21, 2010 | post #27)

Sherry Melton Is Granted Pre-Trial Diversion

The boys (and yes that's plural) were age 15/16. Her husband was there when it happened, so i'm thinking they didn't force themselves on her. What a double standard...if it was a 37yr man vs 16yr girl, we wouldn't care what she did. He should just pay for what he did, and it should be the same for the other side too. I personally hope the guy from the funeral home gets a diversion, that way it's fair  (May 9, 2010 | post #76)

Why would anyone vote for W T ?

I'm pretty sure that Butch Patterson gets vacation time every year. Therefore if he wants to take time off and go referee, who cares? Don't hate on him just because he beat Mayor King's reprimand.  (May 9, 2010 | post #111)

How much are our elected officials paid?

Do what, you have your facts messed up. According to tricities.com, Jim Warner makes $105,671. Another example of people thinking they know something when actually they don't know squat.  (May 2, 2010 | post #7)

Darrell Bryan

Large named bands like the beach boys, air supply usually cost more money than the gate brings in. Usually businesses in town, and local businessmen underwrite the show, therefore being able to afford the show. Air Supply, Oak Ridge Boys, Mercy Me (twice), Beach Boys, Gladys Knight...they are all big named acts. Although they are in the twilight of their career, they still play a great show. I was at the beach boys concert, and they said the NPAC had the best acoustics of any place they can remember. Darrell, in my opinion, has done a great job of marketing the NPAC and bringing in acts that will fill the place. Also, he was not mayor for one term, but three. I would give anything to have him back over the current mayoral tandem of Warner & King.  (Apr 27, 2010 | post #71)

Pam, I have friends that work on the police dept, and no they can't replace any officers. I'm sure you remember reading about the brutal murder of Roger Self, who was a supervisor. Well, I am told by my friend that the police dept can't hire another officer to replace him anytime in the near future. Any police/fire/public works employees that are to be hired have to go through the board of mayor and alderman. Therefore, it's not a lie, she won't let them hire anyone.  (Apr 26, 2010 | post #36)

Speeding Tickets

I have a couple friends who work at the police dept in Greeneville. They told me that they allow 14mph over the speed limit before they stop you, and with the 15th mph you get stopped and more than likely get a ticket. I think that's more than reasonable.  (Apr 26, 2010 | post #25)

Vote for City Mayor Here!

I sit corrected, you guys are right...Butch had not been collecting the rent, that part of the reprimand was correct. In all fairness, it was because he knew the guy had fallen on tough times, and was trying to help him out. However, all the other crap, and it was exactly that, crap was thrown out. Remember the mayor and RECORDER set the agenda for the board meetings. Therefore they weren't cancelled because alderman didn't show up, they were cancelled by the mayor prior to the scheduled meeting. As far as the recorder's office is concerned, I couldn't tell you if they are honest or not. I do know that Warner Realty has made a TON of money off wal mart/walgreens that moved to town. I wonder how she knew to get that property before those businesses moved in?? Hmmm, it's a mystery!!  (Apr 23, 2010 | post #63)

Gay/Lesbian/Bi/Trans People in Greeneville

Gay/Lesbian/Bi/Trans People in Greeneville

you are right Kinsey Six, some gay/lesbian people have procreated children, which only proves the point that being gay is a CHOICE!! You wake up one day, and decide to see how the other half lives i guess. As for leviticus, don't forget the old testament people were held under the law set forth by Moses. When Christ died on the cross, it created a new covenant with God, whereby the law was no longer needed. Living by the law in the old testament was very very hard, and when they sinned, they had to make sacrifices to God to repent for their sins. With the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we now can believe in him and accept him as our personal Lord and Saviour, and we can inherit the kingdom of God.  (Apr 23, 2010 | post #46)

Deputies On County Commission Want a New Jail

first of all, David Crum isn't a commissioner, yet... You guys have been bashing the deputies, but let's not forget all the commissioners that are either teachers, married to teachers, or retired teachers. They vote on the school budget every year, they vote on whether the county gives a raise to teachers. Isn't that a conflict of interest as well? Almost everyone on the commission works for some kind of government, or their family does. On the last vote on whether to decide to build jail or not, both Rennie Hopson and Robbie Morgan voted 'no'. So check your facts please.  (Apr 23, 2010 | post #69)

Tickets, safety or purely revenue generation

I agree, how dare they run radar in school zones to make sure our children are safe....the nerve of those guys. I have seem plenty of officers on 11E, where i'm pretty sure they lots of bad wrecks. Also, last time i checked, i'm pretty sure that the citizens are the ones who put themselves in the position of getting a ticket...they are the one speeding. I myself have found myself slowing down so i don't get a ticket, and wait yes that does improve safety!!! Wow, look it worked!  (Apr 23, 2010 | post #2)
