Redirect ... Redirect

The intention of this blog is to draw out an intelligent discussion of changing the changable, disposing of the disposible and to help redirect the cities of Central Louisiana in a positive direction for all of it's citizens. The discussion is not to find out who is sleeping with whom or for the use of personal attacks.

Try this for an assignment ... How can Chuck Wagner and Chris Roy change what is perceived as being wrong with their respective offices? Folks, it's like this ... put up or shut up!

OK, I'll bite. How?

I see two entirely different a problems: the Sheriff is totally autonomous well funded agency. Sheriff Wagner can pretty much have it his way. The mayor can be practically obstructed at every turn as is dependent on some degree of harmony and cooperation from the council. See the problem?

I'd like to congradulate Chief Coutee and Azar Kayal for being appointed by Governor Elect Jindal to The Crime and Public Safety Transition Advisory Council from Cenla.

Azar Kayal was an advisor to the Rapides Parish Sheriffs Office until Sheriff Hilton had a difference of opinion with him about politics.

Once again, congrates to Chief Coutee and Azar Kayal. I know that you both will serve with dignity.

How can Chuck Wagner change the perception of the sheriffs office?

Sheriff-elect Wagner ran on a platform of change and accountability. He must come into the sheriffs office and make the changes promised (more patrols, more drug arrest, increase youth programs, etc) and be open and accountable to the public. He must start making changes when he takes office, not a year down the road. The voters ask for change and expect it.

I believe that Chris Roy (not mayor) must fight for the citizens also.

Too often a politician gets elected and puts what he said to get elected behind him. They often forget how they got into office and start believing they are unbeatable and that the public will believe anything they say. These two men will be watched closely by the voters. The voters of today are more informed and do watch their elected officials. If a politician does not keep his promises, he runs a greater chance of being voted out.

Good luck to these men and congrates to the citizens that they serve.

I beg to differ that the voters are any smarter today. Don't be too quick to give the voters any credit for being intelligent, i.e. a look at Scumqueen Clinton's poll numbers will demonstrate that perfectly.

If Wagner comes in a cleans house before getting a close look at the operation he's more foolish than I thought. A person who hasn't been in the department in years and comes in expecting to make changes for the sake of changes is foolhardy at best. He will require time to look over the whole operation and learn it all from the bottom up before he can make the kinds of changes I get the impression so many want made.

I think the sheriff's position should be appointed, just as the chief of police in a city. This last race proves politics don't belong in this position. They all owe the public an apology for the way they behaved and we shouldn't be subjected to this crap again, EVER.

One of the strongest motivational questions for a positive response is " would you please help me with ___________?" This is one question that cannot be overused to the citizens of our area.

Example 1 : Would you please help reduce crime by reporting suspicious activity?
Example 2 : Would you please keep the grass clippings out of the street so that apppearances are kept and drains remain unfouled?
Example 3 :Would you please help to conserve your tax dollars by (use your imagination for an activity that makes you a better citizen)

The point is that we elected public servants and not saviours. Our government will serve us as well as we and our fellow citizens participate.

There are people in the sheriff's office who have an unabated history of self-importance and employee abuse. Debbie Hickman is a perfect example of a policy of never being nice or respectful to anyone. I notice that she now displays some signs of humility and courtesy toward others. Getting rid of her will send a message of respect for the feelings of the employees of the dept. as well as the other agencies that have been subjected to her abuse for many years.

Sheriff-elect Wagner has not taken office and will not until July1, 2008 (unless WEH steps down earlier). I'm certain that he will look at the operation before making changes. I never heard that he will come in and "clean house". Makining changes does not mean firing....it may just mean making more effecient.

I'm interested in your idea to appoint the sheriff. Who would you recommend have the authority to appoint the sheriff? By the way that could only happen it the legislature passed the law and that would never happen. All states (with the exception of Alaska) have elected sheriffs. The only difference, most states protect the deputies from being fired by the new sheriff (deputies covered under civil service). But they also require the deputies to pass strigent requirements before becoming a deputy.

I believe that most voters saw something that they did not like in the current administration (whatever that may be) and felt with WEH endorsing S;ocum, if he was elected, no change would occure.

I believe there should be some kind of mechanism for appointing a sheriff, much like the one in place for a chief of police. A city/parish commission could be established comprised of city and parish officials and lay citizens who are well known civic-minded people who are respected in the community. It could be point-based or vote based. I just know there should be a better system than this most recent debacle.

Obviously, that isn't an important detail, but I was just curious, I guess......

Sorry if that query offends anyone.

Horace said...

Steve, I understand what you are saying. Let's look at what would have to change.

First, change the city from a home rule charter and change the parish from a police jury and join the two into a city-parish governing body.

Second, get the legislature to change the election of the sheriff to an appointed position. I believe that the LA Sheriffs Assoc. is such a powerful group that they would never allow this.

With that being said, I believe that we will continue to have an elected sheriff position.
We as voters can demand a change in the way things are handled. We must continue to become involved and speak our displeasure to our elected officials. Too often people care more what an elected official can do to benefit them instead of who would best serve the voters as a whole. We would rather sit and complain vs. getting involved and make a difference.

Why would the citizens of the Parish want anything to do with the City of Alexandria. The booming growth of bedroom Communities is due to disgust with that thing called Alexandria. The City Executive and Legislative Branches cannot coexist and function peacefully just having Alexandria to worry about. What would they do with the entire Parish to concern themselves with.

An elected position is the only method the citizens have of expressing their desires. Appointees express and emplace the desires and ideas of the appoining authority in order to suck up and keep thei job.

As far as Debbie Hickman - Slocum's campaign Headquarters phone number was called forwarded to her desk at the Seriff Department. She actively participated in campaigningon his behalf (as she has done for every Sheriff since Holloway)on Department time and money. She should have been canned years ago. Very, very self important person who exercises her "power" and authority with a personal agenda in mind. Highly influential in determining who gets what contracts, etc.

It's kind of a shame. I was so excited to have a young educated eager candidate elected mayor - I just knew things would change. I had an opportunity to talk to the mayor for about 10 minutes on two different occasions and he is really quite full of shit. I don't know that Brewer or Sams would have been better but I doubt that, in realistic terms, they could have been any worse. Roy has an arrogance not justified by his accomplishment or public confidence. Bummer

Roy is just like Clinton was in his first term as Gov. of Arkansas. He has brought in a bunch of young, know nothing, imps, who don't have a clue as to how the real world operates. Mainly because they have never had to operate in the real world. Roy and his band of thumb sucking adolescents have made mistake after mistake and will continue to do so because of their arrogance.

Arrogance + inexperience = One term failure

I don't think it's so much the quality or age of his appointees as it is a severe overestimation of his own intelligence, skill and charisma. He can do it right - he just won't because he feels chosen by destiny instead of elected by a community desperate for honest leadership and positive direction. He is right in most controversies with the council but his win at any cost mentality is not a workable philosophy in a city currently run by a thug and 4 morons.

The working philophy of the current members of the Legislative Branch of the Federal Government party wise and the Legislative Branch of the Federal Government versus the Excutive Branch of the Federal Government are prime examples of nothing getting done due to not working together.

Alexandria City Govenment is just a minuture image of the Federal problem. The Council may consists of thugs and morons but they are elected thugs and morons. They are due the courtesies of the office they hold until kicked off the Council. Royboy and his City Attorney are extremly disrespectful to the Council treating them as blue gum cotton pickers needing an education.

Courtesy and respect would go a long ways if it is not too late to salvage the relationship

You and I agree, however you said... "overestimation of his own intelligence, skill and charisma." Ask yourself this: Could these same overestimations lead to choosing staff that are more starry-eyed, fawning, supporters than calm, confident, political operators?

What Roy needs is a few more people on his staff that have some political experience.

His staff looks more like romper room than board room. When dealing with this bunch, you need people who are experienced enough to wrest power from the council... and have them never know their power has evaporated. To any person skilled in political negotiation, this would be an easy task, considering the make up of the council. Roy is having problems because he’s too busy changing diapers on his staff, and too arrogant to tune in and listen.

And to the Lamar lover: Monday, December 03, 2007 11:38:00 AM

Don't bring hate into this, it's not an emotional argument. In his own way, Lamar is a mental Nazi, believing his mental abilities are superior to everyone else. He believes that all others beneath him should be silenced, (exterminated) from the discussion. He constantly says, "You have to understand..." Like others don't understand, and if they did, naturally they would agree with him. It's a sign that he considers himself superior, when in fact he is too inexperienced to accurately assess any situation, political or otherwise.

Lamar believes that the power of his vocabulary can change opinion and have the political opposition convert en masse. In effect, he believes that if he sounds intelligent, his ideas will be universally accepted. Such is not the case. Roy's detractors view Little Lamar as nothing more than an incessant mosquito, constantly buzzing with worthless noise. Most others, who have had extended contact with Lamar, agree. Unless they, like you, are Lamar sycophants.

First reaction when reading this: armchair quarterbacking. Then: no, it does sound as though this speaker has some experience along these lines, but I wonder what could be done differently to effect a positive change from the current divisive and obstructive atmosphere.

Could you speak generally to what some positive approaches could be, leaving out of course names and personalities? Some of us follow local government without ever having personally participated beyond the voting booth.

These are the types of people who populate Mayor Roy's staff. You can tell from their reply that they take my observations personally. That's part of their weakness. It's not personal, it's politics.
As to the rules, you silly child, there are no rules except one. Perception is reality...learn it well.
Score? Mayor Roy, zero. Black councilmen, thousands! Why? Because in the black community, the council is standing up to that rich white boy who got elected Mayor. Mind you, I did not say all blacks. Certain select upper-middle class and upper class blacks have never had any affection for Myron and crew. However, the blacks on lower third believe he's one of them made good, and they love all of them.
It is the PERCEPTION of unity that gives Myron his political clout. We all know the reality is that he's a thug.
Oh, and one more thing...I'm not Beth Levy. I piss standing up.

Anonymous said...

So does Beth.

And Myron's power and influence has been diluted in all communities. And perception does not equal truth in political or any other arena. Perception is a shallow measure of the facts and never satisfies the quest for the truth. The truth is that the two most dangerous councilmen are Fowler and Silver because they are selling their soul to save their ass.

You confuse reality with truth. The reality is that Bill Clinton was a 2 term President. The truth of his inability to lead had nothing to do with the reality of the elections that put him there.

In politics, perception IS reality.

The truth about Myron is widely known, but to his base, the perception is that he's the MAN! ...and he draws his power from that base.

You kiddies better learn that lesson well or you'll all be one term wonders.

Both of these children aren't capable of logical conversation. They believe that they are the final authority on the political war being waged at city hall.

They don't realize that the years you have been living doesn't matter as much as the years you have been learning. Roy is a political novice, his staff is also green as grass.

And to me, 46 years old with 10 months in the political arena isn't much difference than 26 years old with 10 months in the political arena. Over inflated egos and inexperience makes his staff romper room kiddies.

And I do know Lamar. Unfortunately I have listened to him prattle on with an incessant stream of self-important platitudes on more than one occasion. During these encounters, my only thought was escape. I pity those who have to interact with him on a daily basis.

Lamar is a child, with childish concepts driving his limited imagination. What Lamar needs, more than anything else, is a strong dose of humility tempered with 20 years experience working at a real job.

Lamar White, Jr. said...

Dear Anonymous 5:13PM,

I do not know who you are or who you are pretending to be, but I am certain of two things: The encounter that you describe never occurred, and we do not know one another.

You claim to be such an experienced professional. Well, sir, perhaps you should be a real professional, and instead of mocking and lying about me on an anonymous blog, take whatever issue you may have up with me personally. That may take some courage and fortitude, but I guarantee we can arrive at a mutual understanding.

However, I doubt that will ever happen. Because then, you would be forced to reveal your identity, and we would all be able to recognize your real agenda: dirty politics.

I have noticed that you fail to be specific about any one of my "childish concepts." Someone asked you to name the other staffers in the administration, and you couldn't do that either. Your criticism seems based on my age (25) and not on anything concrete. You are attempting to describe the personality of someone you have only encountered over the Internet, and I take great objection to your words. They are really crossing the line, and this isn't the first time you have compared me to Goebbels The first time, you mocked my disability as well, remember? Because, as you pointed out, Goebbels had a club foot and I have cerebral palsy. Really "professional" and "experienced" of you! What cold, calculated politics! I hope everyone was taking notes.

As anyone else would, I take it very seriously when some anonymous person attempts to smear my name (and I hope readers of this blog will understand that this person is not in my life and has never been in my life).

In the unusual event that you actually gather the professionalism and ethics to speak with me personally, I can be contacted via e-mail at lamarw at gmail dot com.

I appreciate the couple of people who stood up for me, and based on what I know about Mrs. Levy, I never believed for a second that this person could have been her. She's always been described to me as the consummate professional.

Lamar, you’re doing it again. You’re an unimaginative and inexperienced political spinner, do not attempt to frame this discussion so you assume a superior position. I recognize the technique and will call you on it. The encounter did occur and it was one of three we had during the campaign. We do know each other, however, I would not consider you a friend, more like an acquaintance. Furthermore, because of your constant, ego-facing prattle, I avoid you when at all possible.

Nothing I have said about you is a lie. It is my own personal opinion of you based on conversation and observation. Others who have been exposed to you agree with me. I’m sure there are people who fawn over you and will come to your defense. That will not change the facts. You are inexperienced, arrogant, and a little too full of yourself for my tastes. Your self opinion is over inflated considering your contributions. As to arriving at a mutual understanding, this is nothing more than a way to say, "You have to understand..." No Lamar, I do not have to understand, and agree with you.

This has nothing to do with "dirty politics." Again, do not try to cloud the subject. This is about you Lamar, your inexperience, your limited ability, and your foolish political ideas. If I have failed to be specific about your foolish ideas it is because I’m at a loss as to where to begin. There are so many. However, small city golf courses and downtown revitalization come to mind.

I also deny having ever compared you to Goebbels. I wrote these words, and only these words: "Lamar is a mental Nazi, believing his mental abilities are superior to everyone else. He believes that all others beneath him should be silenced, (exterminated) from the discussion." Any other reference to you and Goebbels was posted by others. Based on conversations I have had with you, and conversations I heard you engage in, I stand by my observations. Do not attribute the words of others to me Lamar, and Do not attempt to gain sympathy by introducing your medical condition into this discussion. This is about your shortcomings and your inability to bring anything worthwhile to the political table. We are discussing your job performance, not your physical limitations.

Like it or not kiddo, you are a public figure now. What you do is under scrutiny by the tax paying citizens of this city. When you are grossly under equipped to accomplish the task you are assigned to do, we will call you on it, as we would any public official. It is not an attempt to smear your name, it is voicing our opinion on your inability to perform the job you were appointed to do.

I realize that this is a tough concept for you to grasp Lamar, but no one is criticizing you personally. I am, however, calling attention to your obvious inability to make sound political decisions. In fact I am calling attention to the entire administration’s inability to make sound political decisions. You, the Mayor, and his staff are blundering around in the dark without a clue as to how to handle the council. Face it Lamar, you aren’t nearly as bright and competent as you make yourself out to be.

You are obviously too immature to grasp this Lamar, but you can’t have it both ways. By your own choice you have entered the political arena. It’s a place where political death and mayhem rule. The combatants who dwell here, do so because they have been victorious in countless battles. Your inexperience and arrogance make you ill equipped to do battle here. And if the only weapon you have to defend yourself with is sympathy for your physical disability, your time in the arena will be short indeed.

To the other posters on this blog, forgive the length of this post. Sometimes you have to rattle these toddlers to get their attention.

Lamar signs his contributions in order to feed his ego. He sees his pontifications on the blog as evidence of his superior knowledge.

Lamar has no life experiences (job history, elected position, to enhance his maturation. He only has the ideals and thought patterns instilled in him in college. He utilizes his handicap in a self serving manner in order to obtain sympathy and bring discredit to those "picking on a handicapped" person.

He is the typical Alexandria elistist who knows what is best for us. He refers to people crass enough to discredit his deceased father. His deceased father's and his mother's finances were used to raise and educate him as an elitist. He has not had to provide for food and shelter as a result of his toil. He somehow, prior to receiving his appointed position as payment for being a Royboy schill during the election, apparently managed to exists and do well without gainful employment.

He may well be the hero of the Alexandria inteligensia (sic?) but in reality is just another suck ass on the City payroll.

There are very few absolutes in the world but here is one:

It is absolutely wrong to attack Lamar White because of his ancestors or his health issues (whatever it/they might be).

Beyond the fact that you are absolutely wrong, it diverts attention from any valid complaint or issue you might raise by focusing readers on your very special cowardice and lack of human decency. Certainly you must instinctively know this but if not, talk to a trusted friend and try to gain some insight into your social pathology.

If a person ompletes a course of instruction at say Tech in Electrical Engineering but never meets the requirement to be a Professional Engineer (PE) is that person an Electrical Enginee?

If the person is not a lawyer because of never having passed the bar how is a person an Engineer if they never participated in the procedures necessary to become a PE?

Perhaps the "reforms" in the police department. Still have cops selling evidence back to the dope dealers, and still have the most corrupt police department outside of New Orleans.

The Roy administration hasn't had any "reforms" at all. It's the same old crap in a different toilet.

Yes, it is, and this is why my entire congregation reregistered as Democrats last year. The Lord does not sanction the threats, lies, prostitution, fornication and profanity of these Republicans. They are not Christian, and the Lord does not approve.

I see the prayer chain we prayer warriors formed last month worked. Sometimes the Lord has to intervene and bless the profane world with His grace.

This blog has gone from intellegent discussion to relentless slamming. If these posters would spend as much time in attempting to cure the ills of the area, they could accomplish anything.

In checking with the employees of the sheriffs office, it seems that the majority of the employees are looking forward to Sheriff Wagner to come and make the needed changes that the voters demand. I hear that WEH may step down early and turn the department over to Wagner before July 1. Does anyone know how that is done? Can Wagner take office before his term starts on July 1?

Wagner cannot officially assume office until he is sworn in on July 1.

However, this might be plausible. WEH could HIRE Wagner as his Chief Deputy. As an employee of the department, Wagner could obtain his POST certification before July 1 and run the department as Chief Deputy while WEH hunts, fishes and takes side trips to Mexico.

What does it matter where the City of Pineville has its Christmas party and what beverages they drank. Pineville does not have a nice resturant to host parties so they have to come to Alexandria.

The city of Pineville once had bars on Main St. but decided to close the bars during the war due to the brawls on Main St. by drunken solders. They never said that the citizens of Pineville does not drink, rather they chose not to have the establishments that sell alcohol because of things that happened 60+ years ago.

What bullshit. The people of Pineville officially condemn the sale, use, or possession of alcoholic beverages in every form and to go out of town to celebrate xmas with booze illustrates (1) the true position of the city government on liquor; and (2)what an amazing bunch of hypocrites that baptist bunch really is.

I found this tucked away in the Clown Talk.
The Alexandria City Council approved the renewal of a contract with Belsco Inc. for the purchase of body armor vests "as needed" for the Alexandria Police Department.
"The bid is in place mainly for new officers coming on board," Joe Despino, the city purchasing manager, said. Despino said the city would not purchase the vests in bulk right now because the 157 officers that need vests have vests that are two years old. Vests would only be replaced as needed, he said.
The new, custom-fitted vests, at the cost of about $650...


If Karina Donica would learn to read, speak, and understand English a little better, she might discover how tight Dispino and Belsco really are. Plenty of under the table cash being passed...

Is it typical for a Municipality to have an intern Electrical Engineer as the head of the Electrical Distribution Department of the City instead of a real licensed, professional Engineer?

As an intern one would think his conclusions, opinions or decisions would have no standing.

The previous head of the Electic Utility Department did not even have an engineering degree. The job does not require one.

I would also say to Sunday 6:45, if the children went to each other's parties, and have since birth, that it would not be a problem, especially if the gifts given are of equal value. If a gift of $10 - $ 15 dollars can sway a contractor, or city employe, then there are bigger issues.

To Monday 4:28. Your explanations are hillarious and the typical governmental spin.

The ethics law says neither a government employee nor his family can receive gifts from Contractors. It does not say you can sin a little. It says Thou Shall not. $5.00 pr 5 million just the same. Beautiful part is the governmental employee's children cannot receive gifts but the Contractor can invite the governmental employee's children to his children's (the Contractor) birthday party and his children (the Contractor) can receive gifts from the Governmental employee's children. One point of note is that such invitations issued on the day of the Governmental employee's child's birthday, at the Church House, witnessed, seemed design to illecite(sic?) gifts from and comprimise the Contractor.

Your second answer implies that the Head of the Distribution department (being unlicensed) is lesser qualified than a company such as a Red Simpson if employeed by the City. After all Red Simpson would have had to have someone take and pass a test to become a licensed Electrical Contractor. Thusly, Red Simpson's qualifications would be greater than the Department Head employed to supervise them.

At least a State licensed Contractor has proven to the State Licensing Board (by passing test designed to determine if they are qualified in their field) they are qualified.

Typical Alexandria policy to have lesser qualified people supervise those with greater qualifications?

Anonymous said...

As a P.S. If the children have known each other since birth why would one wait until the day of the birthday to issue the invitation. If such closeness exists seems like the Contractor's child would have been invited at the same time as all the other children.

Funny the Contractor came into your Sunday School Classroom to receive an invitation to your child's birthday.

Anonymous said...

It is not the amount of the gift but the "appearance" of a Governmental Employee seeking gifts from Contractors for his/her children.

If the amount was any concern a total ban on gifts would not be in place. Numerous cases are recorded where Governmental Employees have hidden their
"gains" through family members hence the ban.

The beautiful part is the law applies to the Governmental Employee not the Contractor. The Contractor can invite the Governmental Employee's child to a birthday party and expect a gift. The only way the Governmental Employee can invite the Contractor's child is with it understood no gift will be given.

LA RS 42:1111C(2)(d) - Receipt of a thing of economic value by a public servant for services
rendered to or for the following:
(1) persons who have or are seeking to obtain a contractual or other business

(2) persons who are regulated by the public employee’s agency; or
(3) persons who have substantial economic interests which may be
substantially affected by the performance or nonperformance of the
public employee’s official duties.
These same restrictions apply to the public servant’s spouse and to any legal entity
in which the public servant exercises control or owns an interest in excess of 25%.

Apparently the situation in question must fail two (2) tests: 1) The public servant in question must be supervising the contractor in question and 2) the gift must be received by the contractor or his spouse. Immediate family i.e. children does not come into play unless the immediate family member has an interest in a business entity doing business with the public agency.

Sorry for the legal lesson. Now can we get on with the show?

You, and the rest of Aymond’s slow-boy sycophants can scream it’s about the cost of the copies all you want, but you can’t avoid the facts. If Aymond wanted to find anything on Dupree, he would simply view the e-mails, make note on those that point to wrongdoing, and request only those. The cost would be greatly reduced.

If you, or anyone, including Aymond wants to see any e-mail the City of Pineville has, they have that access. If you, or anyone, including Aymond wants to have copies of any e-mail, they can have it for the asking. The difference is that Aymond wants the original documents and he wants them for free.

Sorry, state law says that if you want copies, you have to pay for them. No Government entity anywhere will turn over the original documents. You make a public records request anywhere and you get copies that you pay for.

Aymond has succeded throwing up so much smoke that everyone, including the media, thinks this is about access. It's not. It's about forgery and Aymond's attempt to falsify evidence.

Hiya Greg, nice to know you're still lurking around feeding off the original thoughts of others to fill space in your own blog.

If I am correct, it was a divorce case in Natchitoches Parish. You represented the wife, who was the plaintiff. You attempted to introduce transcripts of a phone call that never took place, and attempted to introduce video that you said was of the husband entering a motel room. Turns out that the husband was not at that motel at any time. He showed by time cards and pay stubs proving that he was working at the time of the video. As to the transcripts, I believe the judge threw them out saying that anyone could type anything. As I recall, he admonished you quite severely for attempting to defraud the court.

As to bringing you up on charges, why would he? The husband's atty kicked your fat ass in court. Nothing new to you, as I understand it, you get your fat ass kicked all the time.

And why should the wife bring charges of unethical conduct? You conspired with her, she would go down too.

Face it Greg, the entire bar in this area has your toady little number. You're a bottom feeder Greg, we all know it and you do too.

First, you say, ...did not know the law re ethics and his practice and you’re an idiot because...Faircloth could maintain his private practice and serve as Executive Council because there is no law or ethics ruling that says he can't...period.

Second you say, ...who is the atty for the Gambling industry and you’re an idiot because...Faircloth was the attorney for the Coushatta Indian tribe. That same tribe operates a single casino. They had an attorney before Faircloth and now that he has resigned as their council, they will hire another attorney. Are you saying that because they operate a casino they don’t have the right to council? Are you saying that because they are Indians, any attorney they hire is un-ethical? Like I said, you’re an idiot.

Third you say, ...whose legacy at Pineville will be trying to prevent transparency of what goes on in Pineville government and you’re an idiot because...Name for us one thing the City of Pineville has not been transparent about? Wanna see e-mails? Call and ask, they’ll set up a computer just for you so you can look to your hearts content…for free! Need copies? Pay the copy charge and you can get all you want. Looking for arrest records? They have every arrest logged in at the front desk of the Police Department and stored in a binder. Look all you want! Need a copy? They are $1.00 for each copy. I challenge you, peabrain, Name one, just one instance where the City of Pineville tried to hide anything.

No, you’re one of Aymond’s sick little minions who tries to stir the pot with half baked lies. You hate Faircloth because he has ripped the cover off your little e-mail forgery scheme and shined a spotlight on it. Now, just like cockroaches, you’re running from the light.
