01.02.08 I totally agree .. with using this form for its intended purpose.. but like the above poster said.. it wont do much good until Jan 2nd. And i gotta agree.. Phelix will get what hes got coming.. No forum is without ridicule. even this one. about half of what is said.. and typed.. shouldnt be on here.. but ya gotta take the good with the bad. This forum won't change the city. The real work isnt in CYBERSPACE... its out in the streets. This more for entertainment.. and saying what most dont have the guts to say or do in person or real life. Its easy to type and say whats wrong.. much more difficult to raise a hand.. get involved.. and make the changed needed. Sad but true. Its all 'lame duck' and wasted time until 01/02 Time for the people in party to set traps for the new administrations.. apply for jobs (some of them).. and spend money.. that doesnt need to be spent. And i do have to agree.. Butch never did congrat Mr. Terrell.. and thats said.. there is NO excuse for it. Every candidate that lost and won.. went up town and met with the winners and losers. At the end of the day.. we are all citizens.. and hopefully on the same page.. for Progress in Mitchell. Atleast I sincerely hope so.

Exactly!! You know from Butch all the way down to the little last officer, everything will be thumbed through, tossed out, removed, erased,depleted, deleted, etc.. Hardman by the way STILL lives with mommy and daddy, so maybe their home needs to investigated.

This was hilarious UNTIL I got to the leopard skin underwear!! OMG, if in deed Phelix did wear these would anyone actually be able to see them underneath that belly??? My GOD!! I hope Dan enacts a weight limit for ALL of our officers. Our city is a laughing stock with all these "pigs",(in more way than one).

He did say when he won again he was going to buy the car from the city for $1.00. I think Danny/the city should sell it to him for $47,000.

Obviously you havent read the State Audit!! It explains it all how HONEST your Butch is. Butch is sooo honest, that is why he is no longer our Mayor!! We will see when our new administration comes in how honest Butch really is.

So, is that why it was ok for Butch to cook and eat evidence that was being stored by the Police? He served it up at one of his cook outs at city hall!

We are only going on what we hear about Butch? What have you Danny bashers been doing to Danny? I believe that is the pot calling the kettle black. You guys have been beating him up over hear-say for a very long time.

Yea

I think there needs to be a full blown investigation on Butch and the expenses traveling to Tennessee with the family and utilizing the citys car and funds. I would also bet there is a huge amount of computer equipment that Hardman has bought with the citys funds, but I bet their at his residence. I bet the citizens would also like to see from this date foward how much the accounts will be depleted. Does anyone else agree? I would bet Chief Hardman will go through the police department budgets like shit through a buzzard. Lets talk about it folks, because you know they aren't going to make it easy on Terrell.

My dearest Phelix, Oh beautiful angel! How I yearn for your velvet touch and how my lips burn for your moist kiss which is sweeter then the nectar which drips from the earth's most beautiful flower. How my body sweats and trembles with desire, when my thoughts turn to drinking the sweet nectar from your full lips, which is sweeter then the honey dripping from the lips of the Goddess Aphrodite herself. What person in their sane mind could resist those fabulous brown eyes of yours which reminds me of the bark of a tree. (By bark I mean the outer coating and not a dog's bark. Just thought I'd clear that up) Your gorgeous black hair continues to astound and amaze me whenever I look at it. Every time I see it I think of ravens and crows. Its just as shiny as their feathers and just as mysterious, only obviously it can't fly and squawk at people. My Aunty was robbed by a raven once which stole her gold chain, but thats irrelevant darling. Sitting at home on the couch and cuddling with you, has always been something I've loved. Especially when we get into an argument about something pointless like the colour of cheese, or the price of fish, and end up having a huge pillow fight over it, (even though I always win, and you end up crying because I beat you at a childish game!) You know I've always loved your gorgeous legs and I can't wait to see you again so I can drool like an idiot over your legs and make a complete fool out of myself in public as always. I think its great how you just roll your eyes upwards whenever I do that, and politely smile at me. Oh how I do love those charming little habits of yours! Anyway darling, I must depart now. I really can't wait to see you again, especially if you are gonna be wearing sexy Leapord Skin underwear for me! Go on, surprise me! I've often wondered what you would look like wearing those, and many a nights have gone by where I would sit and fantasise about you wearing Leapord Skin underwear and I would have no need to watch music videos any more. I will forever be thinking about you, and I love you with every beat from my aching, burning heart which will wither away and die without your sweet nectar-like words! Forever lost without you, Your lover forever oooxxxooo

When will Butch have to turn in the city's car?

Shame on all of you for saying Butch is a dishonest person, and saying things are going to come up missing. Butch is the most honest man any of you will ever meet. Shame on all of you for spreading rumors about someone you truly do not know. None of you know any facts you all go by hear say.

Phelix is the Sadaam Hussein of Mitchell. Mitchell will be that much better.. when he's removed from power. He was one reason.. the mayoral vote margin.. was as high as it was. Thanks Butch.. You shoul've saw thru that error in judgement keeping him around. That cost ya. The election was won before it started.. but larger than expected.. because the mayor never kept his surrounding people in check. I'm sure Danny will NOT make that mistake.

Phelix is the Sadaam of Mitchell.. His time is numbered I'm sure.. Thank God. He is one of the main reasons.. that Danny won by the margin that he did. That was on Butch. Butch never bothered to corral him.. and his 'antics'.. and brutality. With him gone.. the cit will be better for it. Respectfully,

I am a 39 year old mom. I did not graduate high school. I dropped out my senior year. I have been wanting to get my GED. Why is it that Mitchell only offers Ged classes on Tuesdays from 10-12? I work full time and can not take off work to do this. I know of alot more people who wants to get a better education and can't. I can go to Bedford but honestly by the time I get off work I dont want to go over there. Gas is so high too. Anyone have any suggestions on how to get GED classes here at night? Maybe someone would be interested in forming some type of study groups and preparing without classes. Does anyone have any idea's? I really want to go back to school but can't without my GED. Thanks for any info. Tonya

I'll bet there's a lot of computer equipment that's not accounted for. I'll also be willing to bet that the city tries to spend everything in there coffers before the newly elected officials take office.

I wonder in the last couple of days how many things have already mysteriously disappeared out of Butch's office?? I also wonder how many things will be missing as of Jan. 2nd??

I hope that everyone realizes that it will take some time to get rid of the (assholes) on the police dept. There will be proper channels to go through to make sure they can't hang Danny for firing them. I for one am very excited to see what Danny can do for us. Just his attitude about our future is very refreshing. We also need to kick in and help when the time comes. No one man can do it all.

I just wanted to say congrats!!!!! I have known Dan for many years and believe that he will do a great job as mayor but I also believe it will take the entire town to make Mitchell a success. With that being said I challenge all citizens to step up!!!!

Like I said in our phone conversation, I am so glad it is over and you have won.There was so much more in your voice than relief. Just look back at the changes that have taken place in your life in the past few months. I think it is so amazing that you have gone through all of "this" and so much more that people don't see. If the people of this town could have walked in your shoes just one day during this campaign there would be no doubt in their minds that you can and will do the job they have elected you to do.Most people will never know what your life has been like during this campaign behind the scenes. But I am sure in time they will see just what a determined person you are.And when you set your mind to accomplish something, it WILL happen, no matter what life is throwing at you at the same time. That is how I have seen you my whole life, and soon enough the citizens of Mitchell will see you the same way and know they made the right choice today.

According to the Bloomington H-T, his son divulged to the funeral goers that he was despondent b/c of "an overzealous investigation into the purchase or use of furniture obtained through military contracts." The powers that be in the U. S. Attorneys office in B-town and the rep for the National Guard neither confirmed or denied anything b/c it's an ongoing investigation. (Rick was a colonel in the U. S. Army national guard, and if my info is correct, he was to be deployed again to Iraq in Jan.)

Now that we have our new administration, let's use this forum to let Dan know what we really need. Since so many complaints have been levied against the MPD, I would really like to see him initiate a Merit Board. By using a panel of citizens that would answer to all complaints made, maybe it would keep things on the up and up. Some may think that you have to have been arrested to be dissatisfied with the cops. Not me, I pay my taxes, work my job, and stay away from bad influences, but I still got treated like shit by Phelix while trying to be a good citizen and report something. Anybody wanna jump on the bandwagon here and let Dan know what's going on?

I agree with you and I think that once terrell has time to show his true colors then "the people" will realize that they made a BIG mistake and that he isn't what he said he was and isn't going to do what he said he was going to. Talk the talk but can't walk the walk.

I can not believe, that the majority of the city of Mitchell, could not see through Mr. Terrell. He used dirty tactics,by putting Mr. Chastain down, he even went as low as allowing family members to write into the newspaper putting Mr. Chastain down. To me, it was a clear and easy vote. Mr. Chastain showed himself as the better person for the job, because, he was not willing to lower himself, by spreading rumors about anyone. I almost feel sorry for Mr. Terrell, because he obviously played dirty, and that will one day come back to haunt him. He has to live with the way he acted. Mr.Chastain is clearly an awesome man, and everyone will soon realize, they made the wrong choice. Atleast he will be able to go to bed at night, knowing he is the better person and will not have to live with anything weighing on his conscious. He can hold his head high and be proud of the good man and role model he is for his friends and family.

To the preacher man, I say a huge amen. That was a very nice and pleasant comment to make. You are right it is time to put aside the hard feelings and for us, as a community, to work together to make our town a much better place for ourselves, our children, grandchildren, and future generations. To Jeremy, thank you for having the balls to start this website. It took a strong person to be able to face all the ridicule and harassment that has came your way for starting this site. Once again, I thank you. To every voter of Mitchell, regardless of your political party, thank you for turning out for this election. As the Preacher said, "Our voices were finally heard!"

Thank you sir for this web site. Our voices were heard today, on both sides. Mr. Gaddis, it is my opinion that this web site is probley the best thing that has happened to the City of Mitchell in a long time. I know it sometimes causes hardships between people, and hardships upon yourself. This site has been a "Buzz" for quite awhile now, it really took off this year. It got the people of this city to communicate and express their views to others. I'm sure some minds were changed by posts that were placed on here, as I'm sure others were completely closed by it (but they kept coming back to it). It is possible that this website got these people elected. There are not many people in this city that doesn't visit this site. Thanks to everybody that went out and voted today (for whoever you voted for). The time for malice is over, lets all join together behind our elected officials and try to make Mitchell a better place for ourselves, our children, and their children. Put away the slings and arrows, both sides. Alone we can only accomplish so much, together we can shake the very heavens. May God (which ever one you choose) bless you all and our old and new leaders. For the last time. "The Preacher"
