Dekalb Co. Fair

Thank you for your nasty feed back! I do support my county and my city in a daily basis! I attend all advertised functions with my family, even the movie night your talking about and NO I DO NOT HAVE TO BRING MY COOLER FROM HOME! I am a very active member of several different organizations locally here and also volunteer for several things here. So before you say I am the lazy person who doesn't support my county or community think again! Btw I will never have to pay for my trash to be picked up because I am not to fucking lazy to carry my own off....if they put a wheel tax on me, as long as its helping our county then so be it....and with the new complex I use it on about 4x a week so my part is paid there! So before you say I need to pay my part to the community, I pay it and I'm sure I pay a hell of lot more than most people around here! Js Do you happen to shop locally...probably not, but yes I DO!  (Jul 26, 2013 | post #6)

Dekalb Co. Fair

Not that I would ever consider moving, but you'd think that people in Dekalb County would want something for their County, instead of letting what we do have go dowb hill fast! Our county has potential to be a great county and be a tourist attraction but yet it seems like your older generation stops everything good from coming in here or even keeping up what we do have. It seems like if it doesn't benefit the high and mighty then its not even considered. ....just a shame!  (Jul 26, 2013 | post #4)

Dekalb Co. Fair

So what are your thoughts on the fair this year? Went there on Monday and Tuesday and watched pageants and it didn't seem like there were very many there? I know I heard a couple of teens talking about a few of the rides being inoperable and the workers said they wasn't sure when they'd be working again? What is happening to all our county functions we have each year? They seem like they are falling out or falling to pieces one by one..... Something else I do not understand, why does our fair allow out of county participants for the pageants, because our surrounding area fairs doesn't allow it? Just like the demolishing derby, last year, had 2 cars to show up. This year I don't think they are even having it? (Could be wrong) Dekalb County needs family attractions or family functions for our citizens and keep it up where people will attend.....  (Jul 25, 2013 | post #1)

Bridge on Hwy 56

I saw the same thing happen a month or so ago, my light was green and as I and the other cars started to cross it there was a car who came flying across and needless to say it could have ended badly. ...  (Jul 24, 2013 | post #2)

grandparenting 101

Generally, when grandparents are mad at the parents the kids are the ones who takes the punishment. Mostly because the parents try holding the kid (s) at ransom bc grandparents cherish their grandchildren. The parents think, that if I do not let them see or talk to the grandparents then the grandparents will come around just so they can see their grandchildren. Or it could be a case of the parents absolutely refuse letting grandparents see the grandchildren, all while the parents are bad mouthing the grandparents for whatever reasons. Yes it hurts nothing but the children, but kids see and hear more than parents think and they make their own assumptions, and will one day know that more than likely it wasn't that the grandparents didn't want to see them or talk to them...it was their own parents who kept them from it happening. Fedup- try mailing your grandkids presents for birthdays and holidays for it only to get returned back to you! Now when the kids gets older and see where their own parents wrote on the package "return to sender" then on the back wrote "kiss my a@@" the kids will know the truth. Good luck with your family issue! But remember family is all you have in the end!  (Jul 22, 2013 | post #2)

county officials

I don't know about elected officials cheating however I have saw the school bus director allow a marriage be broken and ripped apart by an employee of his. He knowingly knew there was an employee (female) there who was after a married man (bus driver) and at the time were on 2 seperate buses then at the Christmas Party, the boss saw these had a fling going and now those two are on the same bus working together and the man's wife is left watching it go on.....  (May 20, 2013 | post #6)

Has Farm Bureau lost their mind? Did they double your Ins...

We had Farm Bureau Insurance for many years and our house burnt down and we lost everything we owned. Our family had not been home in 2 days bc of vacation and wgen we started dealing with them they wanted to screw us on everything! Needless to say, after 8 months of fighting we gave up and took what they were willing to pay and that wasn't even a half of what we had. Terrible company who can careless about your family and they offered us nothing in the 8 months dealing with them. Thank god dor family who we lived with until it was resolved. We now have Erie insurance and our rates are much much cheaper on our home, car and life. Dekalb Insurance in Smithville Tn is a broker for them. Excellent Service.  (Apr 22, 2013 | post #30)

Topix Forum Monitored by Law Enforcement

I would have to agree with you on this! I see these post and comments about people on here all the time and some people I know and some I don't. People on here always think they are cleaning out someone else's closet or ratting someone out, instead of taking care of their own business. If you ask someone about a person, one of the first replies are automatically they are on drugs. That could be true or may be not but how would anyone know for sure unless they have did the drugs w/ them or saw them buy the drugs?? It's just nonsense to get on here and bash someone continously. These people just need to go to their face and do it the right way. You can't believe anything (I'm guessing) on here. According to the forum, every wife in Smithville is cheating, on drugs, and or both. Or same way with the men  (Apr 13, 2013 | post #8)

DCS Going to take kids away

I have saw children come into my home that wanted to just lock themselves up in a room and never socialize with anyone else in the home and when you ban them from their room unless they are to go bed for the night, then you have the child punching you like a brick wall and kicking you like no tomorrow. Although I stand firm on our decision to make the children come out and play with the other kids and do things with the family, they tell you how bad they hate you etc, but yet in the back of your mind you know it's best to keep the child moving so he or she is not (or not as bad) just suffering from separation anxiety and/or depression. Some people do not realize what foster parents go through to keep a child safe (even from themselves). I love being a fp and wouldn't trade it for anything and I know the parents (of my children) would definitely tell you their children are very well taken care and always doing something to stay active. It's sad and heart wrenching to hear these children tell you the stories of past homes they've been into and as a citizen and also a home your required to express concerns, but sometimes I feel your wasting your own breath.  (Apr 6, 2013 | post #118)

Child Abuse

If all the allegations are true DCS has no choice but to open a case back up. If u call the child abuse hotline as an anonymous person give them information they have 72 hours to talk w the x husband. Now do not get me wrong dcs is slow to respond to calls but if u continue to call n report it eventually they will respond quicker. If u recorder your daughter then dcs will feel as if u are making her record the message make sure u ask her these questions 1. What's your name 2. Do u understand your being recorded 3. Are there any problems with recording your confession 4. Are u being made to tell your confession by anyone. If your local dcs doesn't help u then go to your regional team leader and when that doesn't help move on to the state level. We have to protect our children, and most of the time the children will lie to protect the person who hurt them. I have saw some of the worse cases of child abuse and it took a while for dcs to move in however the did. And if the parents has good lawyers then lot of times dcs will not fight them unfortunately. Been in the situation with my own siblings n their children, knowing they didn't need the kids bk bc of drugs n domestic violence but yet bc of their attorneys they only stayed in custody for 4 months ( as if that's going to make a failed marriage all better n a druggie all clean). Its sad our children have to go through this.....  (Apr 2, 2013 | post #11)
