If you were Mayor Terrell, the police officers or the Council, who would you appoint?

A Merit board is a waste of time, look at the Lawrence County Sheriff's Department, they have a merit board and look who gets hired and doesn't get fired there. I heard Mike Terry is still receiving a paycheck after his involvement with that corruption stuff that happened over there. Hawkins hired how many of his relatives? How many of them were qualified? Someone told me the other day that we should find a police department outside of Indiana to do our hiring and firing. I thought that was a pretty good idea. They don't know us and have no bias toward anyone on the council, mayor's office, or police department. They can just make decisions based on facts that they receive. If someone screws up or want's hired we send them the details and they make an unbiased decision for us. If Terrell's kid has mental problems like some people say he won't get hired, if someone screws up, there's no one to protect him. Seems fair to me and doesn't look like it would be that hard to arrange.

Mitchell has the worst police department around. With the expection of maybe two.We need to get a meritboard started. For example all that Geyer & Terrell wants to do is write tickets.Daddy DANS LITTLE BOY WROTE A TICKET TO ONE OF HIS FRIENDS , WHAT HAPPENED TO THE TICKET? she had no valid drivers license or plates. We all need to be friends with the mayor. Why don't they show a little kindness to others. Also all you people can talk about is the council,You should be questioning the Mayor, CLERK & Board of WORKS. ALL THEY CAN SAY IS WE ARE BROKE.DON'T THINK SO. THEY BOUGHT A LOT OF GUNS AND PAID SOMEONE TO DELIVER THEM. I'M SURE THEY COULD HAVE GONE AND PICKED THEM UP CHEAPER. COUNCIL IS THE LAST TO KNOW ANYTHING, IF THE MAYOR AND ALL OF HIS BOARDS WOULD GIVE THEM A CHANCE & WORK WITH THEM YOU WOULD SEE A DIFFERENCE. ASK THEM HOW MUCH MONEY THEY MAKE OFF OF ALL THE TICKETS? THEY SPEND LOTS MORE ON GAS.

Be nice to get this website going. I would like to have a place to have some descent discussions and where 1 person doesn't have 5 identities like on the timesmail website. I'm sure Jeremy can check ips on here and boot the multiple ones. The timesmail website is just a biased rag filled with a lot of dumbasses.

Just a correction to my last statement: I'll petition to have the so-called career criminals removed as they may be biased. Just because people may actually live off the gov't doesn't mean they are bad people and don't deserve a say in this matter. Who's to say they didn't do their part earlier in life or will do their part later in life. It's america and even retards like you have a right to your opinion. You don't happen to wear a blue uniform do you? Maybe even be on the council and live out of town?

Mr.brown
Mr.brown

Well, I signed it and last i heard we had a 2nd sheet going around, so that's probably 30-50 of us Lehigh employees that are living off the gov't and going out and getting arrested at every turn. I have also seen a petition at the gas station and the names on theer were retirees and other hard working people I know. All our names will be known at the next council meeting when the petitions are turned in,so you can check it out then. You are the one claiming these people signing this petition are a bunch of people living off the gov't or career criminals, if this is true, start naming them and i'll personally write a letter to Terrell to have these people removed. I doubt you can name any, because it's just a lie on your part, because you are some Terrell hater and all you can do is start shit. Get over the election, Terrell may not be best, but at least he's trying instead of people like you that just want to complain all the time.

Give out the names of those at Lehigh who have signed the petition. Step up to the plate & let's hear the names of the Big Boys & Big Girls who signed it. I'll tell you this much Mitchell is becoming an embarrssment to Lawrence Co. & the laughing stock of the reigon. It is getting to the point people are ashambed to say they are from Mitchell.

Mr. Brown
Mr. Brown

Cbear, How about naming those names that live off the gov't or have been arrested? I too have seen the petition and the people i seen were a lot of retirees and hard working people. I work at Lehigh and most of us signed the petition. Also, it hasn't passed it was vetoed by terrell and has to be revoted on at the Dec 1st meeting. get your facts straight and quit spewing garbage.

Ya know what me sick. Ya know what makes me angry. I just go out & use a ballbat on these idiots that calls themselves citizens.If you haven't noticed there are petitions around town againist the proposed Merit Board. One problem. It has already passed thru the council now all that has to be done is for the police to vote on it. Hell I seen the petitions & half of the names on there are people who signed it have been arrested in the past or live off of the government & the taxpayers.Wake Up Mitchell "Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves maybe Barack Obama can free the citizens of Mitchell. The citizens seems to be in the same boat now as the slaves were back then" This is all-american cbear signing off.

LOL, he does bitch a lot. He's the sam shaw of mitchell, but a lot of what he does bitch about is true. He's complained about how bad the police force was in the past, how Chastain sucked as mayor, and now about the merit board. That's all i can remember, i'm sure there's more. I agree with him on a lot of stuff. Mitchell police force did suck before terrell took over. Once terrell took over, we got rid of Phelix and got the england brothers as new officers. I believe we even increased the reserve force. I have seen more cops patrolling Mitchell than ever before. I don't believe we need a merit board and as JL has said if the council gets it they will put Tincher, phelix and some other worthless former police on it to protect the last remaining worthless ones.

Wood lives on Oak St. between 11th & 12th St. He has done nothing but bitch about everything ever since he has lived there. It doesn't make any difference who's the mayor he ain't happy. Do not take this man seriously or sign any of his papers. Do not trust him.

For god sakes I hope he doesn't choose Jim Wood. He is by far the dumbest man in Mitchell. Everytime he opens his mouth he lies. He makes ya wish that Birth Control was retroactive.

I knew he was trying to prove a point just making sure. Personally, I think it was all Barry. Wouldnt have gotten my vote anyway but what posts he has on here just made me laugh! Thanks for the entertainment Barry! I say Krystal for Mayor!!

@jl: Yes, he did. I think he was trying to "prove" a point -- that anyone can put your "name" in there and post something as "you". I always liked Barry, but this has swayed my opinion of him a bit. "Wait a minute, I did not write those things. The problem with this site is that anyone can be anyone on here.Trust me I would not go to their level." So he makes a lie ("I did not write those things.") then follows it up with "Trust me". Um, no. I don't think I will, Barry.

Jeremy, I didnt post the last comment @ 8:05am and it did not come from my computer. Did BarryDuncan post it as well?

Just to set the record straight... Every post by "Barry Duncan" above was posted by the same person. Well, from the same computer anyway. Obviously, I do not know who was sitting at it. It's entirely possible it was someone else using his computer, I suppose; it's just not likely.

Also, just reveiwed the time and I was at work the time this was suppose to have happened. so I will no longer be putting my name when I post. Thanks for listening.

Wait a minute, I did not write those things. The problem with this site is that anyone can be anyone on here.Trust me I would not go to their level. I am above all the hate that they perpatrate. I am thinking that it would be in my best interest if i did not visit this site anymore now that I have seen the malicous behavior of many people on here. Their must be some kind of verification system on here.

BarryDuncan, you were sounding good until you responded to Rockchester. No candidate would have come back at a post like that. REAL MATURE! You just sunk your campaign. Sure all politicians promise this and that, where Mayor Dan went wrong, he didnt realize how bad of shape the city was in when he made these promises. Most people don't realize how bad the past admin. left the city, it doesnt give Dan much of a choice but to do things the way he is doing. Please give up your campaign, we have already had one illiterate Mayor we dont need another!

Are you kidding me? Soccer moms? No wonder people told me of this site, (laughingly), and they are right......what a sad little town you have! I know someone who moved from there, as fast as they could. They say you folks are about 25 years behind EVERYONE ELSE, including Bedford, all of us here agree. Thanks for supplying loads of laughs with your serious articles. You gave me an idea for my thesis....."Hoaky Town U.S.A."

well, despite what people say their are alot of qualified people that would do alot of good. I think Dewight Dunbar, Herald Sanders, Larry Caudell,Jerry Allen, well there are many who would be a positive influence on our community and not be yes men. I just want to clarify something thats been on my mind. The golf cart issue needs to be settled. I think they should have the same right to be on city streets as car, bikes, and scooters. As long as they are issued a plate of some sort and the price should not be outrages maybe $10 or $20 , no more. Now I think Dave Nolan would be a great Clerk Treasurer, so if he's interested in running I would be willing to talk to him about it. There are many soccer moms out there that could do a hell of a job in the council, one that comes to mind is Diane Cooper, maybe vicky schlegal, or even Krystal Slaten. So there are plenty of qualified people to serve our community and work together on the tough issues that we all face. Lower water bills, get rid of that damn trash tax, activities for our youth, fire department, raods, sewer and water, these are all issues that we must confront and over come together.

Congradulations Barry on your decision. Right now if the election was held today you or even Butch would beat Danny by a 3-1 margin because people are that fed up already. I'm curious on you who think would be good candidates for the council.

Hello all, everyone wanted change in the last election, well thats what we got. Not the kind of change we wanted but change none the less. If you want real change, positve change we can beleive in than vote for me in the next mayoral election. I'm not going to kiss your ass for a vote, but i can tell you that what i say i will do and if i say i am going to lower your water bill and get rid of the $10 trash tax than thats what i'll do. Its because i am one of you. I'm not out of touch like Dan, Butch or the city council. City Government is the closest form of represntative government there is. Thats because its of the of people. Many including Dan, once elected loose sight that the people that they represent are the same people who pay their salary. If you want someone who listens and actions is taken to make mitchell better, someone you can work with than vote Barry Duncan for mayor. Thank You. yeah i know alot of you will say some shit about me but thats ok, we live in a free country. have at it.lol

Hey Mitchell you are right. Trying to find some good people may be a problem. I'll tell ya the way everything is going for the mayor he would be better off to resign & let the GOP appoint someone & let them have it because it's obvious it ain't going to get any better for him.

@ cbear, you really cannot make that kind of rule in regards to past arrests. If someone was arrested when they were a kid for something minor and now they are a successful and responsible adult, that would not be right to hold it against them. Also, good luck finding enough people to fill ANY board that haven't been arrested ever in a town like Mitchell (unless we're hitting up the elementary schools). LOL!

One of the rules that needs to be made is that whoever serves on the board must NOT have an arrest record. From what I have been told there 2 people on the current Mayor's Advisory Board that have been arrested in the past.

I like your comment on TM Jeremy. I vote for you and the new pastor at First Baptist Church. I think thats a good contrast.

Mayor Terrell should stick with any 2 of the 3 men on the officer complaint committee. The police officers will pick, Phil Tincher, the female dispatcher,lol, and Phelix--(they wont pick anyone that will go against them). The council isnt smart enough to tackle this so they will just appoint themselves.
