Elected Officials

I agree....it might help keep them honest?!! What do you think?  (Jun 26, 2007 | post #2)

no Tammy, I don't know everything..truth of the matter is I know every little. I have worked all of my life and made certain that my children did not do without...I know it takes money to survive...I know that to find a job or keep a job it takes hard work. I know that some times I am a snob and sometimes even a hypocrite but I try to always be honest about my feelings and by doing that I am sometimes offensive but I have learned to take the good with the bad. I am not a person of priviledge....I get up every morning and go to work the same as others...there have been times in my life when I was worried sick over finacial struggles and I do know how to do without. I suppose I deserve your hatred and hostility...not sure why but I can accept it and I can also live with it. Let me assure you that you are not the first person to tell me that I don't know shit and you probably won't be the last person either....none the less...I wish you no harm and hope that your future is as bright as you are willing to work for. Good luck and God Bless!  (Jun 26, 2007 | post #116)

jobs in jamestown!!!!!!!!!!!!

you are right..what can I say? I have never had to bear that "tag", thank the Lord, but I know I am not as tolerate as I should be. I was taught differently but I don't always adhere to the teaching of my parents. I have always tried to do what is right and what is honest but I don't always do it in the most dipolmatic of ways. Thanks for pointing out my error and I will try and be more tolerate in the future. Good luck to you and to yours. God Bless!  (Jun 26, 2007 | post #33)

I agree. Especially when someone is qualified for a position and they are looked over by the "Buddy" system. I have wore that shoe more than once. By the grace of God I have a decent job here in town. But probably not for long since I opened my mouth and inserted foot re:minorities!! Oh well...thank the Lord I have great interview skills!!  (Jun 19, 2007 | post #22)

You are right!! And I was letting my personal preferences get in my way. Seems like lately I am having to eat a lot of crow....I think that from now on I will keep my mouth shut. And fyi... I apologize if I have offended anyone on this forum.  (Jun 19, 2007 | post #108)

Roane State Dean's List Announced

Congratulations Librarian on making the dean's list that is quite an accomplishment....to bad about the teacher but you will find that the world of academia is much like the working world....some pull their weight and some do not! Don't take it to heart....things will turn out okay in the end!! That dipolma is your goal and with determination and drive you will eventually have it in your hand and trust me....that is one great feeling....even though, you realize you make have to travel out of county to work!!  (Jun 19, 2007 | post #7)

Are you referring to yourself in first or third person? Just curious? I love Jamestown and the fact that jobs are few and far between does not change my opinion of Fentress County. The more slective our local employers are the less riff raff and trash that stay here. And as far as I am concerned the less jobs the less monorities...and that suits me just fine.  (Jun 19, 2007 | post #106)

I agree with that statement but what about good old fashioned foot work? I work with people everyday that have absolutely no conncetions and they are coming back with jobs....not that it is easy or quick but they are finding work....some it takes 3 months or more but they are doing it so for me it goes without saying...the more determined and persistant you are the more apt you are in getting a job in county. You can't just sit back and say well I don't know anyone so I won't be getting no job in Jamestown....then again there are God only knows how many Fentress County folks that have to drive out of county everyday for employment...they are not complaining...well maybe they are ....but they are doing it!! They have to!! They have bills to pay! I just hate to hear someone complain when they have not exhausted all of their resources. Pride and determination goes a long way in becoming successful.  (Jun 19, 2007 | post #20)

I would not call him stupid...just inexperienced! I did not vote for him because he is young. Young people do dumb things!! I mean, that is the way of human nature! Nothing can be done about that! Maybe after a year or two on the bench he will get it figured out!  (Jun 19, 2007 | post #12)

First of all you can not find a job sitting on your couch!! Most people whine about not being able to find employment in Fentress County but they do not show up day after day after day after day ....and around here, if you don't know someone, then you got to be there every morning to prove to the employer that you are willing to work and that you are determined, strong willed, persistant. This will give the local employer a chance to see that should they give you a chance at least you would be there every day....and Lord knows that is important to the employer! If you don't show on a regular basis then they classify you with the druggies and your application is tossed into file 13!!  (Jun 19, 2007 | post #18)

If you play ...you have to pay! And what goes around usually comes around! If you spend your life being dishonest then it will come back to you...if not in this life then the next!! And it is not just the sherriff's department that is corrupt....look at the Judge's offce and DA's office and the clerk's office and the local lawyers...I think they decide who wins before they even go to court!! Whose turn is it to win today?? Don't worry Lawyer one....no one is putting any of you guys on a pedestal!!  (Jun 19, 2007 | post #11)
