Re: “Trapped in the dying mall

Dude, I shredded every wall in my house with throwing stars when I was a kid. Sadly, my career as a ninja never really took off, though.

Re: “Trapped in the dying mall

How are things at the Citadel? Haven't been in there in decades. Used to deliver their mail in '72 when I was a relief carrier out of Station A Post Office.

Re: “Locals meet on Ferguson

How about justice for Gilbert Collar, a white, unarmed 18-year-old under the influence of drugs was shot and killed Oct. 6, 2012, by Officer Trevis Austin, who is black, in Mobile, Alabama.

This was not in the National Media,
because they did a "White out" on this story.

Pass it on.....

Re: “Elder outlines sheriff's new team

Good luck Mr. Elder! As you settle in I hope that your leadership will include qualified women. I am not sure that Maketa's girlfriends are actually qualified for their jobs.

Re: “Yes, it's asbestos

When I was young, this area was called Fred's Shacks. There were all sorts of old cabins, TB huts, etc., and Fred rented them out to the homeless. No telling what they will find if they keep digging.

Re: “Elder outlines sheriff's new team

Ms. Stanley – As a taxpayer and member of this community, this sickens me. Where did you get your information?

The Sheriff’s Office DOES NOT have 7 Bureau Chiefs nor have they ever! Actually they have 3 authorizations for 3 Bureau Chiefs – 1 in Detentions, 1 in Law Enforcement and 1 in Support Services. This equals 3, not 7. Therefore, incoming Sheriff-elect Elder will be adding an additional Bureau Chief for a total of 4.

Secondly, this idea that Larry Borland will replace Cardarelle is a HUGE mistake! She isn’t even a Bureau Chief let alone a Commander … but Elder is going to replace her with a Bureau Chief? Obviously he has no clue! I can tell you right now, Mr. Borland nor will anyone else in that office, for that fact, provide the level of financial work that Ms. Cardarelle does. She has a wealth of knowledge and has done exceptionally well as Comptroller. Mr. Elder needs to set aside his bias and be a true leader and embrace those types of employees rather than snuggle up with the like of Commander King, who has a file cabinet of internal affairs investigations for his misconduct. In addition, he would embrace the legal knowledgebase that Charles Greenlee provides to that Office instead of getting rid of another employee who otherwise was not part of the “boys club”.

Speaking of “boys club” … Elder is surrounding himself with all men. Either he is homosexual or sexist! Quite honestly, there are a number of Elder’s new Command Staff that are nothing more than useless. An example of this uselessness is Commander Bob McDonald, who mind you is being promoted to Bureau Chief, which only provides more evidence that Elder is just fulfilling political promises, which is unethical!

Lastly, this “will likely result in an additional high-level position," which really means that Todd Evans, Chief of Police in Fountain, is coming over as a second Undersheriff. This idea that there is going to be salary savings is misleading, which further confirms that Elder can't do his math corectly. Regardlessm, the Sheriff’s Office is due to implode and the taxpayers and members of the community are going to get stuck with the bill. Employees at the Sheriff’s Office need to do their jobs and not consume themselves with back-door politics and creating a top-heavy agency, which will eventually topple over.

Bill Elder has NO idea what the definition of leadership is and how to be a true leader himself. Just you wait. The Sheriff’s Office will implode soon enough.
