What is going on with the Liberty City Park? The pond looks terrible, weeds and algae have taken it over. The basket ball nets are all torn off the goals. The Restroom where my son plays had crap on top of crap in it was that way on a Monday, and was still there in Wednesday. Is it contracted out now? Just curious.
All you trumpers out there have to be proud you helped elect the closest thing to a tyrant ever in the history of the U.S. You really are a basket of deploables.
Ahhh, are you an emotional wreck right now? Is your weak childish mind actually listening to and believing the media reports about the children in “concentration camps”. All the while you ignore the fact that the same thing was occurring during Obama’s administration, you ignore the fact that the same thing happens to legal American families when the parents choose to be criminals, you ignore the fact that the responsibility lies with the parents of the children that chose to put their children in that position by breaking our border laws, and of course let’s not forget that you choose to ignore the IG report. What a about Trump and Russian collusion, for some reason all that seems to have just gone away, almost as if it was a big lie…but we all know the media wouldn’t lie now would they. I’m just a lowly deplorable using his brain and making an observation.
re to all you trumpers..proud to have a president with balls i know it might take people like yourself awhile to get use to it,since its been awhile since we had a leader that would bring up the things he has,you know political suicide an all im proud to be an american,what are you proud of ?
What’s up with Main Street in Liberty? Did our favorite Sanctuary City run out of money?? Talk about a shithole...
Yes, Liberty is a Sanctuary City but Main Street is the State's.
Taste of date was a failure, Way to stay consistent Dayton Chamber of Commerce
I agree the Taste of Dayton was subpar and I do agree they are consistently producing the low level of performance for years.
The Dayton Chamber‘s needs to find a go-getter to run that office; nothing against the ladies that are there now but sometimes you could be a good worker but not fit the job and that’s what I think is happening at the Dayton Chamber’s.
I agree with the post that the Dayton Chamber‘s needs a new person to run the office , The lady there now although she is nice, she most definitely is not one who works awfully hard. She relies on all the volunteers to do all the hard work.
In regards to the Dayton Gun Show, the city has always allowed the Dayton VFD and the Senior Center to participate in producing the annual gun show. For this help the Senior Center and the VFD each received 1/2 of the revenue generated. The Dayton Chamber took one look at this division of revenue and the chamber director said no to producing a gun show. Now keep in mind that the city pays the Dayton Chamber $ 30,000 a year to turn the lights on in the morning and lock the doors at night. The city council also provides the chamber with several free offices, a reception area, a kitchen area, phones, copier services and free use of the meeting rooms in the center. Looks to me like certain members of the city council and some chamber officials have cozied up on this arrangement.If this city council had any respect for the taxpayers, the senior citizens and the volunteer firemen they would be sitting down with the chamber director for discussion on why she "would" have a gun show this year and why the revenue split would be the same as it has been in the past.
Why is the Dayton Chamber over a City facility?
The comment regarding the gun show and the Dayton Chamber‘s , the Dayton Chamber did not want to host a gun show because they would get nothing financially out of it ., apparently they’re not considering 30,000+ dollars that City of Dayton is giving them of taxpayers money for them to run that facility. If that contract between the chambers and City of Dayton does not consist of the multiple events that has been taking place for the past numerous years, The city is a bad negotiator and they are wasting taxpayers money . Just tell me what the taxpayers are getting out of this agreement between the chambers in the city ? Somebody is in somebody’s pocket ?
All of this pettiness and noise. There is an old saying about how big your house is, or what you drove, or how much money you made, in a hundred years, is making a difference in a child's life. Now I am not sure just what the order of this but it is saying nobody cares what material things you have, as long as you make a difference in a child's life. So, when we are taking each other apart, calling each other names, our belief is the only belief what do you expect your children to learn from you? Think more, speak less.
I have been a gun show vendor for seven years at the Dayton community center , never have I had such terrible trouble getting an answer about the gun show. I have called and left numerous messages at the community center. The lady for which I have been dealing with for years with no delays or troubles I now understand is no longer there . The gun show is supposed to be this month June. I heard through another gun dealer that also told me it took them months to find out there is no gun show taking place this year . This now leaves me without a show for June. I find this completely unprofessional and disrespectful. This was one of the best show I attended each year. What a shame.
Let me see if I understand this right. In the statements made about a TIRZ, they say the TIRZ cannot tax property within the zone. But they will get their funding from the municipality that created it. So, unless the municipality is overtaxing its citizens and is sitting on a pile of excess tax money, then the municipality will have to raise taxes to fund the TIRZ. So, while you will not have a tax (directly) from the TIRZ, the taxpayers will still have to pay more tax so that the municipality can shift dollars to the TIRZ. Wonder why they didn't divulge this?
RE: TIRZ check out the following from the City of Bryan that explains how a TIRZ functions: https://www.bryantx.gov/tirz/ Essentially, it establishes an agreement to provide a determined baseline amount from property taxes to the city. Any property taxes collected beyond the baseline provided will go to the TIRZ so they can reinvest in improving the zone.
To: “Let me see if I understand this right”. Well, once again you have managed to read to respond instead of read to comprehend. If you truly cannot understand the TIRZ concept, go to Wikipedia and punch it up. It is a development tool that is unique to Texas municipalities and counties...and, IMHO, the best tool in the toolbox to aid the principals in implementing infrastructure development without raising taxes within those municipality or county confines.
TIRZ, I have an extensive amount of experence performing contract work for TIRZ's in the Houston Area. They are ran by a board that pretty much answers to nobody. They are created to provide money for public improvements. The property owners in the zone have to petition the City of County to request the TIRZ to be created. I don't see the City of Dayton meeting the requirement to initiated it themselves.
Dear Houston TIRZ contract specialist that “I don’t see the City of Dayton meeting the requirement to initiated it themselves”. What are, in your contract specialist mind, the requirements? I can hardly wait to hear!
TIRZ: bottom line is that taxpayers subsidize developers through tax money. Do the taxpayers share in the profits the developers make?
"TIRZ: bottom line is that taxpayers subsidize developers through tax money. Do the taxpayers share in the profits the developers make?" No, you have failed to understand how a TIRZ functions. The taxpayers outside of the zone do not subsidize any of the development; it is only those businesses within the zone that are subsidizing the improvements from which they directly benefit. The TIRZ is still paying their fair share of taxes to the city or county while the TIRZ is in existence. Any tax money collected beyond what is agreed upon to be payed to the City is then used for infrastructure improvements in the TIRZ. The money cannot be used for any other purposes and can't be distributed as "profits". Please see City of Bryan link a few posts above and read to comprehend not just to reply. Don't get your britches in a bunch over something you fail to comprehend.
Liberty Panther Girls High School Soft Ball Team Just Won The State Championship in Austin, Texas Today!!!!!!!! So Proud of You!!!! Girls and Coaches!!!!!!!!
Wanted to send out a HUGE congratulations to our Lady Panther softball players for winning state!! So very proud to be a Liberty Panther.
Nice article and poster for Frank Longoria who is one of the good guys that gave his best years to Dayton P.D. and Liberty S.O. Frank could have worked in a big city or county but he was always with us. Let's give back and support Frank and someone please tell us where exactly we are going to be doing this. I see no location for the barbecue and benefit in the earlier write up.
in the recent post about theft at Wal-Mart Gary Don Dews is a registered sex offender that did time at the hightower prison unit.
So what's going on with Constable Johnston? Have tried to call his office several times in the last three weeks but he is not in his office. Do we have another Constable that is refusing to work? Just asking.
In reference to Constable Johnston, I thought one of his campaign promises was that he would be a full time Constable. Well I guess the lies continue. Time for a new Constable.
Our school buildings are important to educate our children, but teachers are the most valuable assets. Liberty ISD has loved spending money on construction lately while it depends on the fact school teachers in Texas don’t have that option to strike – it’s against the law. Texas teachers not only face low salaries (bottom third nationally), but also benefits such as health insurance and pensions that are the poorest in the country (50th). LISD and Texas could be the next to boil over and strike regardless of current laws as they seem to be falling further and further behind in how far the dollars from their paychecks go and the they are used as pep squads for school bond elections.
Liberty High School has fewer students than when I graduated but the school is so much bigger. I have not been back here in years until March and I was impressed with the gym that was added, the tennis courts doubled, and the new band hall (I guess). I wish we had had that kind of support when I was in school.
Why don't they start going after the drug dealers in liberty and ames? They only make those promises during election time.
"why don't they go after the drug dealers in Liberty and Ames ? " , WHAT ? supplement to the retirement plan.
County Commissioners: WOW! Must be nice to vote yourself a huge raise. $20,000 a year for a car allowance! What a ripoff of the taxpayers. We need to remember that at the next election. They should all be voted out of office. That is $100,000 over 5 years. Counting all those that get the allowance thats a MILLION dollars.
County commissioners actually only gave their selves a $5000 gas allowance due to the gas prices rising .
I am sure the county officials will cut their car allowances back when the gas prices go down.
What no men are applying at LCSO.
When does the City of Liberty ever plan on doing some street repairs. The crew the have doing random asphalt patching is turning pot holes into bumps that’s even worse to drive over. They don’t even compact the material in place or square up the repair. What ever happened to the seal coat program? At least it extended the life of the roadways.
"When does the City of Liberty ever plan on doing some street repairs." NEVER. That is not important to the people that have been voted in. They don't have money for street repairs, or anything else the city needs to help the majority of the people who live here and pay taxes. BUT they can find money to buy airports and country clubs!
General Comments When does the City of Liberty ever plan on doing some street repairs. - When Friends And Relatives Live Or Move Onto Your Street!
My child looks forward to being an upper class man at Liberty High School and the end of year field trips for "play week". The beach. The movies etc. Poorer school districts don't have the buses and the wherewithal to take such trips one after another at the end of the year. Academically struggling school districts can't afford the idle time. But the well being of the taxpayer and students who need to use all of their time wisely should not rule over such a popular week of festivities.
My child looks forward. WHAT?
Your "child" has to wait their turn , but you seem to imply all of the school sponsored field trips are a waste of money. Some students have probably never been out of town to the movies or some of the other things that they will be doing in the closing days of school
Ref: My Child, there's not a child in Liberty county who has not been to the movies or out of town, give me a damn break.
If you think every child in Liberty County has been to the movies or out of town you must be white and a voter for Trump. This shows a superior attitude with no actual facts to open mouth, to insert foot. Such as our leader does. There are many children that have not been to a movie theater unless they can make it to Cleveland, because it wasn't important enough in Liberty, because it was more important to them to have their hillbilly functions as the Grande Ole Opry than have anything for kids. God bless the man in Cleveland. There are people still without transportation and those children only get to go on school sponsored trip. Writing what you did shows that you live in a Republican bubble and have never experienced anything else in your life. Because if you had lived both ways, poor with nothing and living with a car and making money, you would know the difference. I have lived on both sides of this coin, so until you have walked a mile on the other side, you have no way of knowing how many children do without in Liberty County or in any other counties because you are so narrow-minded and from such a cliche of a town.
To the "do-gooder" who has to tell us all how much better informed and how much more they care: It is not the school's job, nor is it the taxpayers' responsibility, to make sure every child gets a school day and a school bus to go to the movies. Period. Your party politics wreaks of unConstitutional "free-thinking".
Could someone please tell me why the person who is forced tgo choose between paying for their medicine or eating supper is now trying to make sure our teenage Panthers are getting several free play days out of class sponsored by us. Tickets and rides included. Beach and a movie and God knows what else. Whoever thought of this needs to invest in a simple relationship to the students, not a sponsorship paid for by others.
To the person(s) that want to blame Trump for kids that have never left Liberty County... Shame on you. That's just crazy! What have you done to help children goes places and see things. How is that the President's fault. He is to run the country, not listen to people whine about being OWED something. Obama gave and gave and reinforced the "give me, I'm owed" attitude. You are not owed anything. If the parents of these children can't afford a Saturday movie or trip to the beach, maybe another family member can help them out. The Government is not your Baby Daddy !!!
People complaining about all of the taxpayer funded high school field trips that seem like social outings need to be grateful we have such an academically strong school district that we have days to blow off traditional learning because we are getting such high evaluations. Or not .... because we are not getting great evaluations. We need new leadership with less trying to make certain people happy and more good old fashion learning.
You would not want to see a child deprived of an experience just because their parents may not be able to afford it. It is not just the Trump supporters, but it is most of these little S.E. Texas mind-sets, narrow minded, little cliques, only interested in country clubs to play golf, and the little women and their little clubs, and nothing for the children. This is why these children going to college will not live here because some of them also have a "free thinker" attitude and what the heck is wrong with having "free Thought" does it impede on your staunch narrow-mind that they should grow up just like you and live in a little community with nothing there and transport themselves to jobs outside Liberty County to make their homes here. These little town have been known to cater to "old last names " of the community and still do, but when they die out, I am sure you have taught your children well, to be a staunch "Trump" supporter and to hate others and minorities as you do. Bless the children that go to college and find out the difference in what you brought them up to be and see the world they would never have seen or the opportunities or another point of view besides your twisted little narrow mindedness that Heaven Forbid! should we have any "Free-thinkers" in the group.
Wow! It looks like somebody touched a nerve in the old staunch Trump supporter. It doesn't matter if you voted for him or not. The idea of your frame of mind, your narrow-mindedness stands out from the get-go. Okay, so it is not up to him whether the kids get trips or not, so what. The mind thought of these little towns in Liberty County have always and will probably stay majority white and Republican. God helps us all should anything change before these old farts die. Like I said earlier, I am sure you have brought your children up as bigots, as you are yourself. You would not have gotten so heated had I not hit a nerve. You know what it's like to live here, you have been contributing to its substantial "old ways" of Southern bigotry and racism and it will never change as long as the same people keep running the same towns. So what?
Well another Trump supporter came out and showed how they got the title "deplorable".
The Dayton Civic Center is not the same because Miss Wilson is not there. She was always very nice and easy to work with and was always willing to jump in and help with our events. You could tell she love our community; she volunteered at different churches around our community and helped with all kinds of fundraisers around town because she truly cares about our town. The center is not as friendly or clean as it was when she was there. For what I can make out she would still be there if it wasn’t for the Dayton Chamber going after the $30,000.00 + dollars of tax money the city is giving the Dayton Chambers to manage the center. There’s a reason why that Chamber can’t make it on its own. The tax payer got the shaft on this deal. I am NOT happy with the way our center is being ran And I now know from the other comments, I am not the only one. What was the city thinking can someone explain this?
Talking about the Dayton Civic Center; I have rented for years there and the room has always been setup and clean. This time around my room was less than the standard clean That I have come to expect. I agree there is a difference in management that has become obvious. I have not heard what the other lady did to be transferred and I guess it doesn’t matter at this point; but the city needs to rethink what’s going on at this time.
Just found out the Gun she is not taking place in Dayton this year. I have attended this show for 7 years and it has always been my best show. I have also always attended the Trade Day at the center but this past year was a waste of my time and money, never again. I thought Dayton was heading in the right direction and now it seems to be going down.
Wish the Dayton Chamber would answer there phones or return a message and maybe be in their office !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Had to call the Liberty Dayton Chamber and they answered?
I now see what everyone is talking about with the Dayton Chambers; I think a change is in order.
Well I see the Sheriff's Office lost 2 more good deputies. I know both of them and they done a good job. Wonder why they left, something to think about.
Since when did the hospital district move into the hospital?......
General Comments Since when did the hospital district move into the hospital?...... Since They Decided To Pay The Office Rent To Friends and Relatives.
Mayor you have always said you are there if we need anything. We do need better streets and curbs and it is only my opinion, but I think we need them more than a golf course.The neighborhoods near the river coming into town are not as nice as where you live and if we have money to fix that, shouldn't it be fixed?
The city found enough funds to save the country club but not one penny for a city pool. I guess too many black and Mexican kids around for that to happen huh?
Regarding the post about the lack of a city pool. Hate to inform you but the City of Liberty is predominately white so not sure how you can insinuate that it’s due to minority kids as the reason no pool has been built. Let go of your victim mentality and you might just live a happier life.
I haven't spoken in a while in this feedback, so I had to make out the whole submission thing again. I had stopped to let you people figure it out and yes, if Liberty is a predominantly white neighborhood that prefers a country club over a swimming pool for all people or a community center for the elderly or for use of other entertainment as well, now you will see why nobody wants to be living in Liberty, Texas and the only reason people come to the Wal-Mart there is because it is a few miles closer than another one. Seriously, who beside the prominent white folks would want to live in such an old unchanged town as Liberty, keep your old names that run the town and keep it predominantly white because believe me, nobody in their young adult life wants to live in a one horse town such as Liberty with their black beady hearts and materialistic attitudes so much better than everybody else. Nobody wants to die in Liberty County.
The city is mostly white which means that is where the power is,there still no pool.
My child...The poster throwing out the race card is a idiot. Get off the Democrat plantation. You're too stupid to see that this is what they want for you. A circle of poverty. Government assistance from the cradle to the grave. They keep you on their plantation for your vote.They live in gated communities,campaign as race baiting poverty pimps and fools like you fail to see through the scam.Their slogan is' keep them dumb,keep them poor and they'll vote Democrat.
Why are the entire election results not published? All the results are in but Ames is excluded. Why is this? Will things ever change and all get equal treatment?
How many council members were members of the country club and play golf there at the now taxpayer-funded golf course?
Congratulations to Eric Thaxton on winning the election for mayor of Daisetta!!! I'm excited to see what you are going to do to improve our city!
Has anyone experienced problems with the pharmacists at Walmart over reaching their authority concerning as to when you can get your meds ffilledfilled
To the person that is having trouble with Walmart filling his prescriptions....Yes I am also. The doctor writes the script the way it should be filled but the people that fill it can’t read and do it their way!!! The way they fill it won’t get me where I need to be. This happens every time with me. May be time to move my scripts to another pharmacy.
Bros is leaving? I bet there is a ton of ex city employees raising glasses in toast of his departure. He ran this town like his own little kingdom.Good riddance .
Who screwed up the Mayhew festival in Daisetta? I heard it was the fault of one overbearing woman.
What supposedly happened at Mayhaw Festival ? I haven't heard of anything happening
ESD 3 going for another huge tax increase after just being defeated in March. With little being said, the increase from .01 to .10 is back on the ballot in May (early voting started today) after it was just defeated in March. Of course, May. When no one knows its happening and a .10 increase can be slid in by just a few ESD friends and families. In regards to this statement, have you been to an ESD meeting to see what this increase is all about. Do you think they were keeping it a secret? far from it. It wasn't Advertised as much in March result in a failed vote. Now their are signs out and letters hanging at the stores and in some mail boxes. this increase seems like a lot it would be 10 cents per $100 of the value of land. Every little bit count im sure as they are getting right now.
"ESD 3 going for another huge tax increase" Why are we being penalized for their failure to manage their funds! No fund raisers, not involving the community or inviting them in anymore over the last 10 years, and you wonder why nobody wants to support you? The community knows what you've done and its shows! Turning away qualified people who want to help because you're afraid they might see through your garbage! You should all be ashamed of yourselves!
I personally find it sickining that the City of Liberty says it doesn't have any money for a community center or anything else to help our elderly people in this town but they seem to have PLENTY of TAXPAYER money to buy a Country Club that only the well off people of Liberty county have any use for. Just like they did with the air port. What is wrong with this town? How do they keep getting away with this kind of thing? Why can't we get a vote on this?
Early voting for the Dayton city council and the roll back question started on March 23rd. The citizens have an opportunity to put Mr. Null in Josh Townsend's vacated seat. Mr. Null is a good man who will do whats best for the citizens. On the roll back question and reduction of taxes, the Council and the city manager's earlier actions brought this upon them. You cant take wives and go to Galveston for an all expense paid weekend and expect people to be happy with your actions. Additionally, you cant take most of the Department heads to the Big Bear Lodge for training. Word is that the city managers hotel suite ran $ 400.00 a night.Sweat deal if you can get it.The voters are tired of this kind of misuse of tax money and they have an opportunity to show it by voting for the roll back and the reduction in city taxes.

DCDC, what's this I hear on the 99.9 the Lambright's are getting another grant from DCDC, must be nice to have friends in high places, the DCDC is aware there are other's in this community??? At a certain point, you need to stop suckling from the taxpayer teet, you business is established, fund your own projects!
Most folks don't know the Liberty-Dayton Chamber has had 2 of the 4 most recent Chairman from Dayton, including the present mayor; and 50% of Liberty-Dayton Chamber Directors are always from Dayton. Also, the Sam's Distribution Center land in Dayton was made available based on an option paid for by the Liberty-Dayton Chamber. Why has the Dayton City Council frozen out the Liberty-Dayton Chamber from the Dayton City Center and most Dayton Community involvement?
The Dayton Chambers has no idea how to run their own office much less the civic Center in Dayton. If it wasn’t for the ambassadors and the junior ambassadors that lady Paula at the Dayton Chambers would get nothing done. That office is a joke and for the earlier post wanting to know why the city of Dayton is pushing out liberty Dayton Chambers. It all started when that lady Paula started working at the Dayton Chambers. The Dayton‘s civic center took a huge turn for the worst . Has no one noticed that the city no longer runs the Dayton trade days after all those years they gave it to the Dayton Chambers and has anyone noticed that the Dayton Chamber has taken over the civic center. We now have less community events i.e. the gun show. Now I understand that the city let long-term loyal employees go because this lady Paula and the Dayton Chambers . A little confusing I thought the city tax money built the Civic Center and I thought the Dayton Chambers was a private nonprofit; not ran by the city how can this be?
What happened to the Lady that was there? It’s very noticeable that the Dayton Center has gone down hill.
I will tell you what happened to the ladies at the civic center that had worked there for years. They were ran off by the city or made to quite. This was planned by the Chambers. Put it together. One of the City council members is the president of the chambers, the chamber is now getting tax payers money to run the civic center. Therefore the city made the choice to get rid of all the long term employees and the rest of the council sat and let it happen or agreed with this wrong doing. So how I see it is the Dayton Chamber put long term city employees out of work just to pad their pockets.
The Dayton Chamber has no idea what there are doing, you can’t get a straight answer out of them and now that they have taken over the civic center they are putting to many people in small rooms. This has to be a fire hazard and the city is allowing them. Why would the city put their community in such danger. I will think twice before attending an event at the civic center again when invited.
Paula Moorhaj flat out lied to our City Counsel mornday evening in reference to the Gun Show. She has no ideal what a benefit to our fire department and others departments that Gun Show has been, to include the Seniors. Shame on you Moorhaj for lying to our Counsel!
The statement that the Dayton Chamber said about the Gun Show is the exact reason I am not a part of that chamber. Not everything is about making them money. The gun show has been a positive event for the community and the Dayton Chamber is incapable of seeing that. Not only did if support or Dayton Senior Center and our Dayton VFD; but it created a much enjoyable event for many in our town. Apparently the City and the Dayton Chamber is out of touch with the public in our town. This town is made up with families that enjoy the outdoors and mainly hunting or sport shooting. This is why this Chamber has not and will not be as popular and successful as the Liberty Dayton Chamber.
Daisetta Mayor election: People be careful who you vote for here! The current mayor just really hasn't done much for our city, and Mr. Benny Carroll is a nice enough guy, but his wife will try to run the city if he is elected total control freak, she was elected to the City Council a few years back and was removed from her position, so please be careful, we need to get this city, government back on track" If that is even possible". Thank you, a concerned citizen.
Shirley sounds just like a Democratic candidate when she pledges broadband Internet for everyone. Gotta get those healthcare prices down and she's gonna fix roads and bridges. Truth is, she doesn't stand a snowballs chance in Moss Hill Texas.
Dayton Police Dept. investigates the Dayton Water Dept. and three people lose their job. Who is going to investigate the Dayton P.D. and all the corruption in that department?
Dayton is expecting this Hugh growth but cannot run their water department with only 7000+ population.
Can someone tell me if employees of the CAD have special dispensation to trespass on private property? I have pictures of this happening and I am concerned. When talking to a friend ,the friend showed me a similar incident that happened to him.
The CAD has no right to trespass! Who appoints the memebers of the CAD to the board and how long do they serve?
To the poster requesting “who elects members of the CAD Board of Directors and what are their terms”? 1. Voting member taxing units are entitled to vote on the appointment of voting members to the CAD Board of Directors. 2. The members of the CAD Board of Directors serve a two year term which is voted on during odd numbered years. So, in layman’s terms, the Cities, School Districts, County...which are taxing units...vote on each member’s appointment and each member has a two year term.
Hey Donna Hillary Brown, can you please defend him in this domestic violence case!!!!??
Oh Donna what a great job you have done raising your sons....apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree. A bunch of BAD apples if you ask me!
Hope Brown ain’t sitting in our Jail he’s costing us Liberty folk money.
I give up who is Eric Brown and why do I care if he was arrested? I'm sure it must have something to do with a political enemy you are attempting to shame. A mug shot and rap sheet means nothing to me and where do you get your hands on classified information like that? The deputy leaking that should be fired.I thought the mud slinging and local races were over for a while.
I remember very well how Donna defended her criminal sons in her campaign. Did you listen to her on the radio? That’s a legitimate reason for Mr. Youngblood to put her sons mugshot on idineout. I would love to hear her explanation for this disgusting incident. I’m sure she’s blaming the poor girl for him beating on her. Donna Brown you are disgusting. Fine job Raising a wife beater, what a real winner at life.
This is directed to the lady that said," A mug shot and rap sheet means nothing to me and where do you get your hands on classified information like that? " Just FYI this is not classified information. Anyone can go check and see whose in jail and why they are in jail. In case you're interested, the web address is http://18.104.22.168/bok/cgibok108.html .
To the person who said you can get information on anyone charged with a crime is full of it. They can deny you getting it. Just ask the Attorney General of Texas.
Who ever stated, “you can get information on anyone charged with a crime” ? I read, “anyone can check and see whose in jail and why”. Which is correct, You can go to the sheriff’s page and click on the link at the bottom and literally put in any day of the week, past or present and see who was arrested and why. It’s public, not classified. Why in the good Lord’s name would anyone try and object to this criminals rap sheet becoming public. To assume it was a deputy is naive. It could be any of the 2000 or more anti-Donna Brown voters who sent it in, you know, considering it’s not classified and all. Eric Brown you are sick and if I was your momma I would be whooping your butt. Of course I’m sure your getting coddled instead. I hope you get what is coming to you boy.
Do you know why measles are back?
I must hurry and run out to hail a taxi cab in Liberty! I will be hailing a long time!
The water dept. in Dayton is needs to have someone new running it. I haven't received a water bill in months. I dont know how they expect people to not be upset when the bill has charges on it because its late. I have gone to them and asked that i be mailed a bill I am told i will be mailed one then as the time comes around to pay my bill i dont have one. The workers dont read the meter they drive by and make just write down what I was charged for the month before. I know that I had a leak but its been fixed and no other leaks were found but yet I am still charged the same amount every month. The workers for Dayton are lazy and can be seen around town doing nothing, sleeping in city trucks, standing around stores, or standing around work sites talking never see anyone working
We have the same problem in ames.no one reads the meters.they just drive by.the who city municipality is horrible.
What is REALLY going on with the city of Dayton's Water Dept ? My water bill has been doubled for the last few months ... and i would like to know why ! I have also paid monthly for sewer service which began in October of 2008 ... i am STILL awaiting these services to be provided !! So once again i will ask ... What is REALLY going on ?!
To the Dayton water Dept. When the City if Liberty has any doubts about how much water any particular party has used, charge them all the same. That's what Liberty did when the new meters we're installed several years ago. Everyone was charged to have used 11,000 gallons. Regardless of what the meter read. They got away with it beacuse the public could not dis prove it.
Bullying. The fact is parents have raised a bunch of cry babies. Children today could not have survived 30 years ago. We didn't run to mommy and daddy ever time someone called us a name or when the teacher got on to us for acting up. Children have no respect for anyone including themselves. Take away their phones and they go nuts. I drive around and on a nice day I don't see kids out playing and people wonder why kids are gaining weight and being lazy. The problem is the way parents raise their children today. No discipline. Quit being lazy parents, take away that phone and the computer every now and then. Spare the rod spoil the child. It's already to late for some of the teenagers however you still have time to help the little ones. Signed: Concerned

I see people already complaining about the county government and we just had an election. If you voted for a change, you have a say. If you voted for the same old good ole boys club, then zip it!
The extra money taxpayers have had to throw in the county coffers because of the increase in the appraisal values is close to $10 million but the increase in services or decrease in bonded debt is el zero. While the libertarians involved in the local political party showed some promise as to holding local politicians to truly practicing smaller more conservative local government, they got all involved in other things. Those of us who would like to see bonds paid off early or taxes reduced or both are left wondering why such self-appointed purists even bothered to get involved in local politics if they are going to get off track every time someone hollers "squirrel". Unseating two District Judges for very dubious reasons with swamp creatures is far from the libertarians' stated goals.
To the poster who is addressing he actions of the local 'Libertarian'' faction and the increase in the appraisal value in Liberty County: You are incorrect on the debt figures. As of October 1st, 2014, the outstanding debt obligation for Liberty County, ncluding principal and interest was $18,326,891. As of October 1st, 2017, the outstanding debt obligation for Liberty County, ncluding principal and interest
I am happy to read where Phil Fitgerald's financial evaluation that he used for his campaign has been refuted. Bonded debt is being paid down and the sheriff gained six more deputies. Why Phil is complaining about the local Libertarians in the Republican party trying to "unseat two District Judges" is beyond me. Many of us already know Phil and mark Beausoliel and Mike Little pushed Donna Brown out front and tried to fabricate a reason for voters to turn against the judges. If he is disappointed in the Libertarians falling short...... well that is what Libertarians always do.
Has anyone at your website looked into the recent lockdown of HDISD and how it was handled by administration?
Didnt realize, that the jubilee was a county or federal holiday and the court house tax office would be closed today??? Wonder if the is a paid holiday?? Liberty county....so dang redneck
About the Federal, State, County Holidays: When in doubt, go to the County Website and look at the “County Holiday Schedule”. All holidays are listed and it’s really easy to find and read. Point, Click, Boom. It’s that simple!
The total value assessed for property in Liberty County increased by $1.8 billion in less than two county judge terms in officedue to rising values for existing property and the addition of value from new construction. Those increases create approximately $10 million per year in additional tax revenue for the county. Despite having that extra $10 million dollars, the budget records show this year Liberty County will spend $2.6 million more than revenues, creating a deficit for the year. Thta is irresponsible. What happened to conservatism?
We are now at that very important time in the lives of people who live in the city of Liberty. The Jubilee is here! Time to leave town and leave it to those who wanted it and who promote it and who live it.
I've never been a fan of the Liberty Jubilee. And since the city council wants to be in the entertainment business, the bewly aquire MRCC w I uld be be a great transition for the Jubilee. At least get it out of downtown where 90% of the Post office parking is taken up by jubileers.
Did anybody figure out what is going on with the water department in Dayton? I went to pay my bill as usual on the 5th to be told I was late ad had to pay 68. Okay and then she said the next one was due on Mar. 22, so I went ahea and paid 61.16, then she said we would get another one for April on the 15th. Okay she said the one I had paid for Februuary was for January water, okay, I am following that, so the one I paid for on the 5th of March was for February so the one that I went ahead and paid for March 22nd was for what Month, since we are going to have one due on April 15th which should be for March's use or am I missing something? Where did the extra month come from or ar we paying for March on March 22nd and April's water o the 15th of April, this does not sound right at all. Some folks do not get paid until the 3rd so I guess they will always be paying later unless it does come due on the 15th of April but we still have a month of water un-accounted for with her explanation on how it was paid from the last month on the following month then why did I have to pay two March payments because I was not behind by any means.
There is nothing unusual about a county sheriff pushing for more funds so he she can better protect the community. I am concerned that we now have a very popular sheriff here in Liberty County that has somekind of political militarization using his spheres of influence to try and force his desire for more funding on elected officials.
I see where someone commented on our sheriff and his push for more funding of his department. Every sheriff we have had since I can remember has wanted a bigger budget. Taxpayers want to be protected from criminals. And taxpayers want to be protected from ever growing tax bills. Rather than back some really questionable candidates for public office, the sheriff would be better off working within the same constraints everyone else has had to. The type of people that may have said they would give the sheriff a bigger budget are the same people that did not respect the taxpayers when they were in public service.
Don't you think it's time to end the Liberty Jubilee? Anahuac, Crosby and Winnie bring pretty big name entertainers. Now we have gone from Tracy Byrd down to Southern Breeze. I don't know if I can stand to hear "Stars On The Water", one more time!
I think the only way to get the attendance up at the Liberty Jubilee would be to bring Stormy Daniels to do a show.
No, don't end the city of Liberty's Jubilee. Move it to the city of Liberty's golf course.Move the city of Liberty's fourth of July celebration to the city of Liberty's golf course too.
ITS A GREAT DAY!
thank goodness phill lost he ripped this county off last time he was in office he should be in jail but o no comes back for seconds
Ole Phil thought everyone would forget his Shenanigans from the past, NAW He Gone!
As for " Ole Phil's shennnanigans from the past", clearly Mark Beausoliel and Donna Brown were willing,and even excited about, forgetting about Phil's problem with always trying to turn an extra buck.
I listened carefully with an open mind to recently defeated political candidate Donna Brown on her complaints and the one or two others that voiced theirs about our District Judges. I was ready tojoin them and rid the county swamp of bad actors until finally hearing exactly what their complaints were. They were all bullshit. Even using the complaintants accounts only,I would say Liberty County would be the envy of the country if their statements were all they had bad to say about our judges. It was all nonsense!
TIRZ. Making the rich boys richer on the backs of the taxpayers. The good ole boy club never ends.
To the poster concerning the TIRZ in Dayton: Apparently, you have no clue as to how these types of economic development tools of counties and municipalities work together. So, why don’t you attend the joint meeting on Thursday evening in Dayton and receive your free education. It’s all about industrial growth potential and the creation of good paying jobs...and the taxpayers will reap the benefits when new industry takes the tax burden off of our rooftops. That’s something that’s been sorely needed for many, many years in our County.
RE: TIRZ While a TIRZ is a good thing, Gulf Inland touting rail access is worrisome. Their facility is on the south side of Highway 90 and the railroad is on the north side. I doubt they intend to truck goods across Highway 90 to load or unload from rail cars. Are we in for another train crossing on Highway 90? The economic development group should talk to local and nearby business owners. They will find the biggest detriment to a business moving to Dayton is the Highway 90 rail crossing and the traffic congestion on Highway 90 through town.
On her Facebook page I asked Emily Cook if she supported school vouchers. Her non-answer after several rounds of ignoring the question was "vouchers are not a priority of mine." I also asked if she sought the endorsement of Empower Texans and made some comments to others about Empower Texans' endorsement of her. I was never rude, but truly wanted information on her platform. She has deleted all of my comments and has blocked me from commenting further. This really bothers me. If she were to win, would she treat her constituents that disagree with her the same way?
Ernest Bailes advertises that he is 100% against abortion. He lies! Check it out at, ivoterguide.com. Research say's that he is a moderate and voted on abortion bills 42% of the time. So, that means he voted 58% in favor of abortions. Emily Cook is considered "very conservative" and she gets my vote.
As of As of Thursday early voting returns show republicans are outvoting democrats 173.9%. The totals are; Rep.3825, Dems. 267
So let me get this straight: the country club can't make it on its own, so now the taxpayers get to pay to keep it going? Sounds like a deal, well for some!
Re: Country Club sale. The City of Liberty will do just fine since they won't have to pay all those pesky high taxes! Maybe they will get a discount on sewer, water and electricity as well. Let's Hope!
Country Club. You mean the good ole boy system is still in effect? Vote to change it for a change.
Sounds to me like there's some shady members of the country club who wants the Liberty taxpayers to cover all the unpaid membership dues and bar tabs. Crooks.
The City of Liberty in the bar business with the MRCC.I can see it now. City council will have meetings at the bar? I thought that was in the City of Ames.
Magnolia Country Club . boss hogg's at it again . since the city will own it will it be open for all to attended ? without any membership dues ? since the tax payers will be funding it . things that make you go hmm. . .
MRCC...wait so are you telling me it would bother someone if people "below" them were allowed to come visit since the city would be over it? That would mean anyone is allowed. I'm pretty sure anyone would be fine visiting and taking part in activities out there...or are you worried about their status or color of their skin? Because that is what it truly sounds like.
Just saw where Liberty was buying Magnolia County Club. I sure hope this is a lie. Why would they do such a thing? This is not a facility where ALL the citizens gets to use. So if this is true, all the BARS and RESTURANTS IN liberty SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET TAX MONEY TO STAY OPEN. So line up Club 770, Lazy H and others, Liberty will pay your bills too. Should't this be put for a VOTE.
Buying MRCC should be put to a vote? Looks like the City Council has already voted on it. Maybe some questions need to be answered about the legality of it.Is it in the city limits? Is the City taking on the liability of the bar?Who is keeping up the golf course? Who is paying the employees? Are the employees now city employees?
OMG!! City owns an airport that less than six people use and now they are going to buy the country club because it is failing due to too few members. Never mind that the streets and utilities are falling apart. I think it is time for a some changes in how the city operates. Do something for all the citizens instead of the chosen few who have lots of money.
The Liberty City council had visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads when they voted to annex MRCC. All those tax dollars from the the housing and Club room/giftshopetc.,etc.
The City Of Liberty. hospital ,airport ,golf course ,hey how about a yacht basin at the port ? it could very well attract some up-scale people to the area .what's next a pipe mill ?
Please be careful about your voting choices. I am a lifelong republican who may be voting democrat in November. Some of our choices for the March election are not who they say they are. It makes me ill for men to campaign and use dirty tactics against women yet they say they are pro abortion and believe in equal opportunities for women.
Just a heads up to anyone who has had a DWI in felony court. Donna Brown has been adding charges on to a lot of fine and court costs without telling anyone. The auditors office found out the clerks were screwing a bunch of cases up, so what you signed for got changed without them even notifying you. I signed a collection agreement and paid everything off six months after I went to court and then they went back two years later and added $160. Then they tell me if I don’t pay it they are going to issue a warrant for non payment. They’re the ones who should be in jail.
Brown has manufactured this entire “war” with the judges to distract the public from her own abysmal record in office. Electing people like Donna Brown, Phil Fitzgerald, and Mark Beausoleil is foolish and irresponsible. It is what keeps Liberty County from progressing and becoming a place we can be proud to live.
This woman lies and cheats as naturally as she breathes. Have any of you actually read the audit of her office? It is not a financial audit; it explains in plain English her failure and inability to do her job. Those failures are numerous, and they are serious. Incredibly, she has accused Judge Morefield of taking files home and removing documents or otherwise sabotaging them. Ask any attorney and you will learn that they have to keep copies and detailed records of anything submitted to the clerk’s office for filing “so that when they get to court Judge Morefield knows what is SUPPOSED to be in the file”. Despite her hysterical cries of “tampering”, Ms. Brown and her staff are slow to file documents, and when they do, they are often careless and documents end up in the wrong files. Ask around.
Do any of you good, decent, God fearing people who have fallen under Donna Brown’s spell know what a false prophet is? “The false prophet comes like a lamb, winsomely, with persuasive words that elicit sympathy and good will from others. He (she) may be an extraordinary preacher or orator whose demonically empowered words will deceive the multitudes...” Ms. Brown’s scripture-laden posts on Facebook are an insult to people who want to elect sincere and honest Christians to public office. Her true character is on full display when she makes statements such as “The cockroaches are running cray cray”. I want to believe that most people supporting Ms. Brown’s re-election think she is exactly what she claims to be. Unfortunately, unless these well-meaning people start thinking for themselves rather than blindly following a silver-tongued serpent, they will continue to be deceived. If that happens, we will all pay the price. We will be doomed to another four years of parties, incompetence, disrespect and embarrassment. To quote the serpent, “TRUTH”.
Someone please call the men in white coats. She’s beyond delusional; she’s probably dangerous.
Wake up people. What you’ve read here is true and undoubtedly written by people who work in or around the courthouse and know what is going on in the District Clerk’s office. As to posting anonymously, why would anyone be stupid enough to make oneself a target of a Donna Brown Psychotic Rampage? For Pete’s sake, she went on public radio and implied that the district judges are planning to kill her. Remember these statements “I think anyone in Liberty County would view that as a THREAT. I put Jay Knight and Matthew Poston on notice, if anything happens to me....” Excuse me while I go vomit.
Okay, here’s an issue for those Donna Brown sheeple: Child Support. According to the Texas Attorney General’s office, there are hundreds of children in this county who are GOING WITHOUT the basic necessities because the Liberty County District Clerk cannot be bothered with filing the paperwork timely. It seems Ms. Brown and her staff can’t or won’t process the case filings fast enough to get the deadbeat dads served within the legal time frame. That time frame is SIX WEEKS. I personally spoke with a prosecutor from the Attorney General’s office over a year ago who advised there are enough cases pending in this county for TWO deputy clerks to work on AG cases full time! He stated the filing fees in these AG cases would more than pay for the two salaries. Obviously, financial support for these children simply isn’t a priority for Ms. Brown. Of all her inadequacies, this has to be the most disgusting. These children and their mothers deserve better.
The day Ms. Brown spoke on the radio I never once heard her implie that the District Judges were planning on killing her. Did I miss something?
I am sorry, but I have been living here for over twenty five years and Donna Brown has been bitching about something all twenty five years of my time here.
Emily Cook willsupport the Republican's choice for Speaker, Ernest Bailes has joined the Democrats and Joe Strausss has kept Republicans from enacting what voters want. Vote Emily Cook! Both nice people, Cook conservative, Bailes all over everywhere.
Oh no you don't Ernest Bailes! You may stuff my mailbox trying to make me forget how often you voted with the Democrats, but there are plenty of people who will send in a few bucks to make sure Emily Kibodeaux Cook matches your deceptive mailers with actual conservative positions she can be trusted to advocate for!
Please tell me one thing Emily Cook has said she is going to do for this district. NOTHING! She runs a campaign on abortion and that’s it. She will not answer any questions as far what else she will do except trash Mr Bailes. I want to know what else she has plans for in our district besides abortion. That is an important issue but that’s all she wants to discuss.
Somebody has been sleeping through political forums if they are there at all. Emily Cook is a wonderful person but behind that pretty face is a wonderfully capable attorney that has covered issues and ideas at least as well as her not-as-well-trained opponent. Her positions do not sound near as political as pratical and he sounds like the Democrats in Austin. Her position on education and other big important issues does not just happen to line up with Governor Abbott's but it is what conservatives are "for". Bailes' positions try to sell teacher block votes on how all of our statewide officials are against education. But as Governor Abbott and the Lt. Governor have advertised, they are "for" the teachers and pay raises and are for reducing administrative cost. Those "administrative" costs are the money people and union types who push for Bailes.
Ref: Walmart, woohoo robot cashiers, maybe they will be faster than some of those they got now, lord they slow. I use the self checkout, especially when I buy lubricants, rubbers, vagisil etc. I don't some walmart cashier judging me. LOL
Wal-Mart. So your head must be in the sand. There are robot stories all over the place. They will be taking jobs. Pull up a video and see them make a car.
Some of the local Walmart employees are saying that Walmart is closing the store in Liberty and it will be a distribution center.
Wal-Mart employees seem unsure of their positions need to talk to their boss. This is not true.
A Wal-Mart employee told me today they are going to remodel in two years and have robot cashiers
Wal-Mart has plans for more self-checkout places which resulted in other Wal-Mart locations that have already been remodeled and a larger place for the self-checkout places but there is still a human to help people through the process, there are no robots. People please, if you want to gossip it is one thing, if you want facts, ask the guy that is running the store. Go visit Mont Belvieu it has already been remodeled and you will see the difference. It is true that some checkers and zone managers have no longer have a job in these wal-marts, but please be realistic when posting about it, because it causes undue stress for employees and their families. These employees need to trust their top manager of their store for the truth in these matters.
I am surprised at the people that have nothing better to do than to mind other people's business. If you work at Wal-Mart you know the truth. Actually, if you don't work at Wal-Mart, why are you causing undue stress and Wal-Mart has always been at the end of a joke with the postings of people of Wal-Mart that are just rude and exaggerated somewhat like lets bring up the robots putting the cars together, yes, there are robots but there are also men in the assembly line. Kindly remove your upsetting remarks and find a yourself a life where you are not always preying on others peoples lives. These people working and waiting o you at Wal-Marts have families to support, too. Since you are so opinionated why are you shopping there, so you can belittle the ones who are? Who are you? What kind of person are you? That is the intelligence factor that drives people right out of these ittle towns.
If buying signs wins elections,the candidates most of the people commenting on this site are against will win the election.Their signs are all over the county. Poles,street signs, etc.
If you want to see the local Republican party begin to collapse, vote for Mark Beausoliel, Phil Fitzgerald, and Donna Brown. That is not meant as a mean statement,it is just reality. When a party elects candidates that have scandal filled backgrounds, its days of winning are numbered. Period.
I can not make up good answers for Candidate for District Judge Mark Beausoliel when he was questioned about some of his courthouse behavior and he took the 5th twenty-nine times. The way I look back at the million dollar plus goldmine he got away with, is that he chose a big payday in exchange for ever holding office. the way I look at the family deal where mail was stolen from a public official, is he knew he could never win office with his personal baggage unless he did whatever was necessary to make his opponent look bad.
If you ever want to hear "it", get ready to be stunned by the nothingness of Donna Brown's defense of all of her troublemaking in the courthouse. And she now is being joined by people with ridiculous complaints trying to help Mark Beasolil get some votes versus Judge Cain. Instead of complimenting or simply recognizing the normal efficiency of a Judge trying to give both sides an opportunity to make some kind of settlement before trial and save money and hard feelings, Donna has fans writing in acting like that is illegal or bad or immoral. Her high-mindedness is not rooted in law or Christian values. Anytime two people can settle their differences without the court, it is a good thing. So her saying, "see they have scandals too", is not only a stupid defense, it is a lie.
If Donna wants to run things she needs to get her law degree and run for Judge. If she did do that she could call meetings when and with whom she wanted. She could also never push for litigants to compromise beofre a trial if that makes sense to her. Her criticism of our judges does not justify her behavior. It simply adds to the chaos she creates.
As usual Brown gets one of her boys to call in to the radio debate a question that only an incumbent is likely to know the answer to. Rather than arrange to look smarter than your opponent Ms. Brown, please behave like you have some sense. Voters know after the one week training every elected clerk goes to, the winners all know the answers to the Brown boys questions. Delia Sellers is extremely qualified and her track record as an elected official insures voters they will get trustworthiness and dependability as well as a team player when she wins.
I know alot of people are mad at Donna Brown for some mistakes she made and her getting so political and trying to replace our judges, but nobody is perfect. Delia Sellers will make mistakes. I am voting to give Donna a second chance. Everybody deserves a second chance. the candidates Donna is helping however have had second and third chances and if elected they will ruin this county.
Emily Post conservative who would vote for a conservative Speaker of the House. Ernest Bailes a supporter of the Joe Strauss as he helped the Democrats elect one of the most liberal Republicans left in Texas.
Lee Chambers and her opponent are running such a non-controversial political race that I sometimes worry voters don't know the tremendous experience Mrs. Chambers has in actually serving as County Clerk. In the last few years Liberty voters have tended to elect the most qualified person and without any negative about her opponent, Lee will not have much of a learning curve
We should all be proud of our legal community for standing up for the truth. If Donna Brown retaliates, as is her style, she should be prosecuted.
This is another typical example of how folks are letting us know how bad of a Job Donna Brown is doing. When u have Attorney’s that are working for us and our problems that need to be resolved but she is not competent to do the job! She needs to be replaced.
If your going to talk about Donna Brown's office let's get her staff members to be drug tested, I know a few who would not pass one who's running for Daisetta school board. And a couple of other who have no business working there than maybe Donna Brown could do her work.
I just can’t see as an average hard workin American that’ loves my Town and the County that I’ve grown up in as being as bad as Donna Brown says it is. Something is wrong here folks and I don’t think it’s all that she points it out to be. If there’s smoke then there is fire and I think she has poured the gas to cover her mess up. I do know I or my family will not be voting for her. Enough is Enough
Bravo to these brave attorneys for not letting their names be used to drag our judicial system through the mud. While not an attorney myself, I have firsthand knowledge that what this letter states is completely accurate. There are many more that know as well, but did not sign this for fear of retribution. Can you imagine having your profession being used for political gain because Donna, Beausoleil, Fitzgerald want power and revenge? Our attorneys are not politicians. They are officers of the court and have worked hard to get there. Donna and Beausoleil have repeatedly stated that all the attorneys are unhappy with and fearful of the court. These two are dragging private citizens and their careers and reputations into their lies and quest for power. Mark Beausoleil is the only attorney I've heard complaining and he is proven to be corrupt and unethical. I commend these attorneys for standing up for theirselves, their professions, and our legal system. Thank you all for no letting the lies and corruption of the few taint the truth for the many.
looks like someone at the Liberty County Courthouse needs help with getting their resume updated.
I have always read i-dineout.com I often find myself in conflict with the majority of opinions expressed on the website but read it nevertheless to keep up with ideas that are different than my own. In this election I have noticed something very different on i-dineout (and in conversations around town), it is almost universally true that facts have been presented to inform voters of reasons to keep Fitzgerald and Beausoliel from returning to the courthouse and the scene of some of their well chronicled scandals and reasons to free Donna brown so she can go be unhappy somewhere besides where it effects our justice system. To be exact,I have not talked to one person who disagrees.
Many,many ,many of us who have been around heretry to avoid conversation with Donna Brown. She repeats herself to much and she never stops until she feels like she can claimshe convinced the poor listener. When she offers for the public to come hear her side of all the chaos she hascaused in our courts, I double dare a few of you suckers to take her upon it. Take some vacation time before heading to her office.
Oh my gosh! I wasted part of my life listening to our District Clerk on the radio and waiting for her (Donna Brown) to say what "injustice" had been done to her. To put it in a nutshell, she was disturbed beyond reason because she was not invited to a JUDGES MEETING. She is a clerk. And I can understand why nobody, be they judge or janitor,would want to meet with someone who talks incessantly! In explanations that could be made with one sentence, Brown could easily stretch it to ten sentences and then rinse and repeat it again to extend her monologue. The trouble she caused the four judges could have all been easily bypassed if Brown only realized that what she "thinks is unfair" is not illegal. And thatif she really had no intention of going paperless, sign a revokable statement giving the judges a commitment that they will continue to have the legal documents they need in paper/hard copy to run their courts. But rather than do that Brown "researches' and finds out she can cause these judges that refused to meet and talk about this some more hell. Again describing their "order" as illegal....... signaling for the umpteenth time she hasno law degree. Brown claimedover and over she was a "team player" but at every turn she is not trying to provide what the judges say they need to run the courts, she is trying to win some debate points and make the judges regret not meeting with her.
Ref: Integrity This does not surprise me any more about this Lady. It’s another reason she should be voted out of office. ITS TIME! I pay my bills and dedts and there should be no reason she shouldn’t do the same. Its just the right thing to do as an American.
I am beyond exhausted with our current District Clerk, Donna Brown. Her constant attack on our judges has got to stop. Do we want someone in office that has respresented herself in the way she has for the past 7 years. I have been a long time friend of Mrs. Brown and no longer. She has never taken blame for herself or her boys. Her boys do not love a quiet life. Each boy of hers has had dwis, countless arrest and have been married or unfaithful to ever one of their wives. Donna Brown should be more concerned with her capabilities to do her job correctly than throwing parties, babysitting in her office or which plastic surgery she’s going to do next. She has covered up her own divorce filing to Billy Brown and tried to fastly file for her son during his divorce filing. Donna Brown has made a mockery of our Courthouse and it needs to stop. She just like her sons have made our county jump through hoops to keep them out of trouble. If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck then it’s a duck. The constant lies that our District Clerk tells is unjust. Why would we want her back in office? Her posts on social media really have me concerned! She has lost all sight of reality. Have you ever asked yourself why all of her sons have been in constant trouble or why they have been unfaithful. They take after their mother. Let’s elect an official that can do her job and not worry about her next breastfeeding augmentation or have her trouble maker sons get away with anymore unlawful acts.
I understand that Ms. Brown manages and is responsible for almost $1 MILLION of public funds (our funds) each year. How can we trust her to manage our money when it’s obvious she cannot mange her own?
i see phil is running for office again heshould be in jail the way he ripped off liberty co.during the storm slimmbag an all of the people cleaning up after the storm watch what u vote for
"I am tired of these politicians throwing mud to try and get elected instead of using the brains and hard work." It's not mud they're slinging, and it's not just the politicians that are the biggest fertilizer problem in our county. It's BOTH sides of the street that have issues, the Democrats get away with so much illegal activity and they're supporters turn a blind eye. The Republicans can't lift a finger for fear that the Demonrats are going to file a complaint like little two year olds. GROW UP for God sake you little pansies!
The passage of alittle time has caused a little argument and a little bet among friends. Can someone please tell me how many times Mark Beausoliel pled the fifth when asked about the theft of one of the District Judges mail? I say it was 39 times.
Well, you lost the bet, LOL!! Beausoleil took the fifth ONLY 29 times. If you ever want Beausoleil to know something, simply write it down in a letter and mail it to Chap Cain at the courthouse. I BET he'll get it.
Whether it was 29 times or 39 times that Beausoliel took the fifth, he should have to stand before an ethics commission and explain why he deserves to keep his law license. Stealing a judge's mail and cash payoffs in the courthouse are allegations that officers of the court must answer to keep the public's trust.
Suggestion for Mark Beausoliel: GO OUT AND REPAIR YOUR REPUTATION BEFORE RUNNING FOR PUBLIC OFFICE! At least wait a few years before your latest scandal and give voters a chance to forget or forgive. You keep running and running and running.You remind me of that Shauberger man that did the same thing. He lost by more and more and more every time he ran.
