GNLCDC Wants to Sell Property

After a problematic series of transactions to buy property from the Town of Jonesboro several years ago, the Greater North Louisiana Community Development Corporation (GNLCDC) now wants to sell that 4.25 acre piece of land. And since the land was purchased from the town, GNLCDC Chairman Herbert Simmons, Jr. said, he felt the town should have the first opportunity to buy it back.

Simmons’ offer came during last night’s meeting of the town’s Board of Aldermen.

Said Simmons, “At this point in time, We do not plan to develop that property.” He added, “Since the property came from the town, that we would offer the town the first right of refusal to purchase the property.”

Simmons went on to say, “That land deal left a terrible, terrible, terrible taste in my mouth, because I was accused of having some kind of collusion with the mayor when that happened. That really did a lot to me, in terms of what we tried to do for this town, to help build Jonesboro.”

The property transaction between the town and GNLCDC had been problematic over a period of nearly two years, even becoming the subject of a criminal probe by the Jackson Parish Sheriff’s Office (JPSO). The purchase was finalized in late 2011.

The council voted unanimously to have the property appraised, subject to the approval of the town’s Fiscal Administrator Ken Folden.

Earlier, during the public comments part of the meeting, several residents expressed concern with drainage problems during the recent heavy rains. Most problems appeared to be with stopped culverts and ditches that needed cleaning.

Notable with her comments was recently returned Jonesboro native Vicki Riddle Duke, who expressed concern about the physical appearance of the town.

Asked Duke, “Did we just give up? Do we just don’t care?” She added, “We have to work together, and that seems to be something that a lot of people aren’t wiling to do.”

In other business, the council discussed nuisance abatement, with Police Chief Wes Horton saying that notification letters had gone out to property owners. Horton said that none of the owners had requested a hearing.

After that time period, Horton said, the town can take action to “abate” the nuisance. Those costs would be added to the taxes owed by the owner.

Also discussed was the advisability of adding additional signatories to one of the town’s checking accounts. Folden said that he didn’t think that necessary, as he and Mayor Pro Tem Devin Flowers were already authorized signatories.

    In other words what Herb is trying to say Is the hotel deal fell through.

  2. Oldman Says:

    Let’s see how much money he makes off of it.

  3. Anonymous Says:

    Was grant money used to buy that land.

    • I want a grant too please Says:

      If so, what do you care? A grant is a gift…and if you sell the item (gift) you bought with a grant, you can pocket the money….whoa…more money in the pocket of the grant receiver….what a great idea…..

  4. Uncle Sly Says:

    Does any one know of any economic development they have brought to Jonesboro? Other than their new building and salaries for their employees. Not saying they haven`t. Just curious, Want to know if Alexander spent my tax dollars wisely.

    Mr Simmons has a lots of things he done. He built a subdiversion and made a apartment out of the post office.

    • Missy Springfield Says:

      di·ver·sion (dĭ-vûr′zhən, -shən, dī-) noun

      1. The act or an instance of diverting or turning aside; deviation.
      2. Something that distracts the mind and relaxes or entertains.
      3. A maneuver that draws the attention of an opponent away from a planned point of action, especially as part of military strategy.

      Perhaps you meant Subdivision …like a neighborhood with new houses…..

      Would you happen to know how his sweet wife is doing?

    • Uncle Sly Says:

      Does the post office apartment depend of government help? I am wondering about private enterprise that would actually create jobs not depending on government. If the subdivision is private enterprise, that is good.

    Interesting term Dr. Simmons (the Dr. is for a law degree) used “…offer the town the first right of refusal to purchase the property…”

    Right of first refusal (ROFR or RFR) is a contractual right that gives its holder the option to enter a business transaction with the owner of something, according to specified terms, before the owner is entitled to enter into that transaction with a third party. In brief, the right of first refusal is similar in concept to a call option.

    Wonder if Dr. Simmons is saying the TOJ has a ROFR from the purchase document in place OR if he is just being kind and offering TOJ the opportunity to purchase the property back?

    Town has all ready spent that money…sorry …perhaps there is another person who can get a government grant to purchase it from you.

  7. Anonymous Says:

    Why would the TOJ wamt that property back. Is there someone else coming in to Joneboro that needs this piece of property,

    If the town does buy it back it should be a greatly reduced price, not anywhere near the appraised value. TOJ is not in a position to pay appraisal price for that property.

    Let Herb find another investor to buy the property. Isn’t he in the “development” business. With his contacts he should have no problem finding a business to come in and snatch up that “good” deal.

      If it is across the street from the prison, I might be interested at ten dollars an acre

  8. Oldman Says:

    I think we should keep a close eye on this.There is some reason for (dr.)simmons to be putting this piece of property back on the market.He could need the money or one of his cronies has something up his sleeves to get more grant monies.You can’t trust a democrat as far as an blind man can see him.You ought to know that by now.I think you will see some changes in the next election.

    A republican congressman got the grant for them.

      But he was at one time a Democrat,a Liberal Democrat at that.

      • Donald Marion Fowler Says:

        At the time of the grant, Rodney Alexander was a dyed in the wool Bushit butt kissing repugnicant. I notice that O^^M^^ is still offering his version of the truth. I think simmons wants to sell because of the trouble is wife is in, you know the MISSING DOCKET CAPER. It just may be that the deal is about to fall through because of the possibility of her being convicted of a felon and he is trying to get the GNLCDC some or all of their money back. If I were you Jonesboro citizens, I would keep track of the money he may get and if any of it ends up in his pocket, I think you have another problem. I didn’t think there was someone more stupid that O^^M^^ but simmons with the law degree may challenge for that title. When reading O^^M^^’s comments you have to keep in mind he quoted an article that called Obama “de debile” and quoted another article that said there was life on Mars. He even advocated getting rid of entitlement programs the result of which would be an increase in jobs even though he predicted that about 15% of those who lost benefits would die. O^^M^^ is as crazy as a loon and you have to temper your answers to him because he has health problems and heart problems.

Pres.obuma and the Democrat party have done more harm in the last 12 years,as our country has went down hill more than in the last 200 years combined. By far obuma has been the worst president we have ever had as a country,just look before and after he was elected.

                      My thoughts of the tea baggers are well known. I answered your copied from another person14 point manifesto but it got erased as many of my answer to your illiterate rants have been (when the truth is presented to you, you tend to run from it). I really liked that 14th point about family values – talk about hypocrisy: just look at Vitter the whoremonger who will be the next governor of Louisiana and McAlister who seems to listen more to his Johnson than his brain. Where do you get the idea that you can rank our presidents as good bad or ugly. Here in Texas we say “Remember the Alamo” and “Remember Goliad” while all Bushit and the repugnicants can say is “Remember Afghanistan” and “Remember Iraq” which were two unfunded wars that helped grow our debt and cost the lives of thousands of Brave and Heroic American Men and Women. For what reason? Bushit went after Bin Laden but changed to Iraq when he discovered (or at least President Cheney) there was oil in Iraq. My guess is that you copied the 14 points from an article written in the Jackson Idiot by the Queen of Tea Bagger, Blanche Shows (nee Bishop). I say that because you do not posses a brain cell capable of putting something together that is coherent. Oh, by the way – it was you who told me your name and address and telephone number. Now use your inferior brain to figure out how.

    Is there anyone out there that sees a connection between a desire by simmons to sell the land he purchased with grant money and his wife’s missing docket? is there anyone out there that even cares about this issue? If the town repurchases the land, an intelligent person would “follow the money.” It ain’t simmon’s and should not go into his pockets. My feeling is that if the hotel he wishes to build looks anything like his apartments in the old post office, he ain’t no developer.

    Was there anything mentioned in the Jackson Independent (AKA The Idiot) about the docket caper, the land sale, the arrest of the councilman, or the murder? I doubt it but I betcha that the ancient Doc Jeffries had something in there about sports or his perception of Jackson Parish history. They need to take his pen and paper away from him, sit him in front of the TV with his trusty remote and forget about him. I am only interested in the four items I mentioned in the first sentence. If any intelligent person has info about those, I would appreciate it if you passed it along. Also wondering about the race for mayor of Jonesboro. Who all has indicated that they would be running?

      • Donald Marion Fowler Says:

        B. S., I am a taxpayer in Jonesboro and Jackson Parish and that is what peaks my interest in the happenings in Jonesboro. At the moment there are four good stories that are not being reported on by anyone: simmons docket caper, councilman being arrested and that same councilman had a rape occur at his residence; the rape; and mr. simmons attempting to sell land back to the town (and who knows where the money will go: I would watch his pockets!) Then there is a election for mayor coming up and it’s looking like a close associate of the former mayor is wanting the job, as does a super duper car washer. Then there is the guy from one of your funeral homes (he ought to know how to bury the town), and a current council woman,. Now B. S. (Billy Stringer?), what have I said that’s not worth saying? Where I live (Terrell Hills) is well protected by our police force (you know, that thing that Jonesboro doesn’t have). Now I imagine (as any intelligent person would) there are illegals all over San Antonio but on a per capita basis, I would imagine that Jonesboro has more. I don’t consider myself hateful to anyone that matters. I have been called a liar but when I ask for proof, I get no response. Two other low lifes have accused me of having sex with my granddaughter and I come back to them with the harshest language that I can and I don’t give a rat’s rectal region what people think of my responses. The two bastards won’t tell me their names because they are cowards who like to hide behind the anonymity of ANONYMOUS. Now I hope that what I have said answers your question about my interest in Jonesboro. Just curious, how long have you lived in Hodge or Jonesboro?

Some ranchers, that own their own grazing land, call the ranchers who graze cattle on government land welfare ranchers. I somewhat agree. I thought you were against welfare. Right wing terrorists are causing more and more trouble in this country. They should be dealt with accordingly. I hear from more constitutional experts lately than ever in my life. There is no such thing as complete freedom in a civilized country. One country called Somalia has no government at all. You can do as you please but don`t expect to live very long.

        Uncle Sly just to let you know I will reply,today I have to go doctors visit. Have a good day

      • Oldman Says:

        Uncle Sly,one thing you said I’m having a hard time with.What you said about right wing terrorists don’t make sense,who was trying to run over the people,who had the snipers,who used tear gas,this should be handled in state court not fed.Why does blm need all these weapons,they are not an enforcement group,all they are to do is manage the land and make improvements.The rest is left to the state courts.What about federal hyways can they put a use tax on them and when you don’t pay they come get your house.who’s going to defend you then.I’ll bet you’ll be walking then.That’s why we have the constution for is to keep govt in check. Do you want the constution null and vold
        or do you want a police state. Look at the other countries that don’t have a constution like ours ,where are they at.There is no such thing as complete freedom you are right on that,that what we have laws and the constution for.I think the liberal socialist democrats are trying to change this country ,and I think it’s for the bad.Are you an liberal socialist democrat like dmf ,or you for a free country? Got to go will get back later. Have a good day

        • Donald Marion Fowler Says:

          Man of few brain cells, please tell us just what a “constution” is. I don’t think that we have one of those in the good old US of A. And BLM land is federal so any problems are federal and tried in a federal court. You are so f-ing dumb that you have big L’s and R’s painted on your shoes so you can get them on the correct foot. Adios space between the ears.

When you shop, don’t forget the Vaseline for your next tea bagging get together. Oh, by the way. If you own land in Mississippi and someone attempts to homestead it, that’s a state issue. You are talking about personal property land. I see that you survived your trip to the doctor which disappointed me. I really wanted to see if they could transplant a hemorrhoid from your rectal area to your nose. That one that should shut up is you. I’m still laughing at the “constution” spelling. Talk about dumb,. You support something and can’t spell it. Have you ever read it in it’s entirety?

I don’t stoop that low to find my friends. Adios, Space between the ears. You want to stay on topic then answer this question: what is the status of simmons and the sale of the land?

Of course, I could get more fun out of the obituaries if certain names would appear there. Have you written yours yet? Mine is ready for print; all they have to do is fill in the dates No gossip is just not like Jonesboro. The people usually are pointing fingers and accusing people of eating chocolate ice cream instead of the town favorite – vanilla. Adios Chief Space Between the ears.

        • Uncle Sly Says:

          Enforcement agents were there to protect the contractor hired to remove the cattle. There were death threats and some bad people there. Even Glynn Beck has acknowledged this. Sad to ask, but how long do you think the state park would last without a man with a gun to control things. All people just won`t do right. One of our forefathers said there would be no need for government if all men were angels. The argument that the feds own too much land and could turn some over to states or private enterprise could be made. However, as of now the federal government owns this land. I would be mad just like bundy if it were me. However that would be tough titty because I don`t own the land. I`m sure all courts have flaws, but handle these matters in the same courts as the Simmons caper? you have to be kidding. No, I would be called conservative on most issues by people that make up labels for people. I am just not narrow minded and right or wrong can think for myself. If I pointed a gun at an enforcement agent at the state park to get my way, I would expect to be arrested. Same goes for the so called patriots at the bundy ranch.

          • Oldman Says:

            Would our forefathers who fought the British for this land be called Right Wing Terrorists? I think so by the British.Law enforcement in the U.S.A. should be left to the states,with the states being able to call on fed help if needed.I own land in Mississippi,if you homestead on it am I supposed to get you out or do I get the state or the Feds to do the job?DHS is not the policeman of the states,that is not their job.

            • Uncle Sly Says:

              If a squatter settles on federal land, who is called. The feds. If a squatter settles on state lands, who is called. The state

              • Oldman Says:

                Uncle Sly, I thought that Bundy homesteaded the land,am I not right?Why is the big percentive of fed lands are west of the Mississippi?If a squatter settles on my land who is called? There’s more to this than what we know,I would like to know who will benefit from this.I just believe if the Feds within their rights they would not have waited 20 years to do something don’t you think? Why is every fed agency buying guns,ammo,tanks,armored trucks?I saw this morning where DHS has a order for another 25,000,000 12ga 00buck, when you add this to the other millions ammo,what are they prepping for? Too many questions and no answers

                • Donald Marion Fowler Says:

                  Your first mistake was where you said “I thought.” That’s a process foreign to you and your empty head. And what in the hell is “percentive?” The reason most of the BLM land is west of the Mississippi is because westward settlers so no value in it and passed it by. The XL Pipeline offers no benefit for the USA. It crosses our country posing a danger to our environment and eventually is passed on to foreign countries where the USA has to compete for it. If the oil were of good quality, if the oil stopped in Houston and was for the USA exclusively I would be for it. Ammo is being purchased so that there will be enough on hand to rid the country of its number one enemy – the tea baggers like you. Not all tea party people are bad but you take the cake. Do you have any more pictures of the people on Mars? Aren’t you worried about an asteroid hitting Jonesboro and wiping it off the map? And to fill your Westboro Baptist Church beliefs, aren’t the missing plane (MH370) and the Korean ferry disaster the work of God punishing the world for homosexuality? Adios, Space Between the Ears. Sleep tight – there might be someone looking in your window, lurking in your attic. I just love reading your crap. It’s better than the funnies!

                  Uncle Sly,you have made some good points.I don’t understand why the Feds waited 20years to start this unless they didn’t have a use for the land until now.I would like to know you is going to make a profit off this.I keep hearing about the Chinese want it for a solar cell farm.There’s some stuff that we citizens don’t know about,if it’s our land we ought to know.They are not doing this just because Bundy owes back lease money.If the govt. were out to help us what about the big pipeline from Canada? Thanks for being able to argue in a civil tongue,that’s something some people on here don’t know how to do.I’m for less spending,less welfare,more jobs,better military,no dummies in gov,less govt and better education with better teachers among other things.Everybody should have a job and be able to work at a common labor price or better.Education would set the price. The main thing is less govt. let the people have a say,they can do a better job than big govt.

  24. sunrisesunset Says:

    What is the title of this article? It is not the GNLCDC offering to give the TJ first right to purchase the land back from them (GNLCDC). The majority of blogs herein strayed way, way off topic. Shouldn’t we stay on topic for Walter’s sake since he works very hard to bring us the latest happenings in Jonesboro? Maybe there should be another site entitled “Anything Goes”.

    Of interest in the same article is concern from a citizen about the deplorable condition Jonesboro finds itself in. Why can’t Jonesboro be cleaned up? It is despicable and sad to drive over the streets of Jonesboro. People…..you, who rent your property to others……do you not care about your rent houses. Some of you rent to scumbags. As a result, your house looks like that. Is the almighty dollar more important to you than seeing Jonesboro restored to its former self? Maybe you should take note and be willing to clean up the mess.

    Government by the few, especially by a small faction or persons or families.

    It’s the kind of government you (and I and the rest of America) will have as long as the repugnicants bow down to the almighty dollar and let the Koch brothers complete their purchase of our government. Ah, but you are to dumb to understand what is happening.

    Remember the Vaseline for your next tea bagging get together.

    To make certain that my post is on subject: has simmons completed his deal with Jonesboro to sell the land back to the city?

    • Donald Marion Fowler Says:

      Sunrisesunset, I get the same action when posting. As they say down south, there ain’t no telling where my post will end up.

      Donald, have not read todays (4-24-14) JI, but will let you know if there is anything in the paper about the GNLCDC land deal. Also, I will check for anything on the missus Simmons, but, I think both of us know the answer regarding her.

      Chief Space Between the Ears, I see that you are now posting under another name. By reading your dribble, you can be identified a mile away. I don’t read Blanche Shows (nee Bishop) for the simple reason that she is the type of tea bagging person that I have a strong dislike for. Her articles are meant to incite, not inform and as for her being an “author” what has she published other than a cook book?

      Good morning my little Liberal, socialist Democrat Buddie,anymore lies I need to know about

      • Donald Marion Fowler Says:

        What is happening with Simmons (both of them)? That is something that affects Jonesboro and its citizens (which apparently you are not one, living outside the city limits). What is happening with the councilman accused of having a firearm in his car (among things) and in whose home a violent rape happened? These are things that should be a point of discussion but instead you choose to go after me without any facts to back you up. I ask again, as I have many times before, list the lies that I have told. Tell me about Benghazi. Tell me about Bundy. Tell me about the IRS scandal. You profess to be up-to-date on current events, so tell me about them. All of these things the blond bimbos of fixed news rant about as if they are important and you have been told by them (that’s the only way that you know about something is when you are told something is wrong).that they are true and correct. I don’t know if you dropped out in the 9th grade or not and really don’t care but your comments show that at some point in your life your brain quit working. Logic is something that you can not handle. For decades the deep south voted Democratic because a republican (Lincoln) freed the slaves but along came a Southerner named Lyndon Johnson and he passed the Civil Rights Bill. At the signing of those bills he proclaimed that with his signature he had given the deep south to the republican for “generations to come” and your dada started voting republican and you have continued that tradition without knowledge of how it came about. You would rather see a black person denied all of his civil rights than be your equal. You are a dumb little twerp that doesn’t know shit from shinola and as such, you and your kind are a major part of the problem. Get your Vaseline ready for I a certain the tea baggers of Jonesboro are getting ready for a meeting.

          Mr. Fowler the reason I keep this up with you is no.1 you come across as a big bully to me.no.2 you try to act like you are smarter than any body else.no3 you like to think you know more about the world than anybody else.no4 to be honest I think you will vote for the Clinton witch for preisident before you would vote for a good rep.By the way if it weren’t for Fox news we would not get but one side of the story.Right now there about 200 job bills that the Democrats will not pass.What about the big pipeline that obuma has put a hold on,1000’s of jobs lost. Look I’m not about to sit here and list what’s wrong about the Liberal Socialest Democrats,cause it would take a week at least.I guess the main reason I don’t like you is that you are a liberal Socialist Democrat and you can’t see what it’s doing to our fine country.I can’t believe you don’t want a better future for your grandchildren than you had..I am not against the black person one bit,I’m against not working and paying your own way.I’m against big govt.and all the give away programs they come with just to get the votes and stay in office.By the way everybody can not have new cars,new houses,boats ,big vacations,drink beer ,smoke and a lot of other things.Those things come after you have supported your family and made a good citizen by paying your way.
          And working.I also don’t believe in killing babies just because the mother doesn’t want them or care for them. It’s wrong and hells going to be full because of it.You are just as guilty as them if you ok it. Thank bout it. Have a good day

          • Donald Marion Fowler Says:

            In your words I am a bully simply because you never have an intelligent answer to what I post. And I like getting under your skin with the truth which you are unwilling to accept. I don’t care if you are a tea bagger and I would never think of trying to convert you to my beliefs as you are constantly doing with me. You are the most gullible person that I have ever run across and my bet is that if someone from fixed news told you that if you screwed a light bulb into your ass hole and bit the tail of an electric eel, the light bulb would light up. Also, I bet that at one time or another you’ve dropped your drawers and farted into a flame to test the blue flame theory. You’re that dumb, son.

            I have never professed to be smarter than everyone but I am so much smarter than you that I have trouble believing that anyone would take you seriously. I don’t mean to be cruel but I do believe that when you die, the IQ of Jackson Parish will rise by a point or two. My advice to you is to keep your mouth shut and your stupidity will never be an issue.

            I am certainly not the best informed person on the planet but I do read newspapers daily, political magazines (including those with a repugnicant slant), listen to some radio programs (mostly that dumb ass blowhard Rush Limbaugh), and watch the news channels (including fixed news sometimes). I do believe that I can speak intelligent on a number of subject but your limited brain cells would prevent you from understanding what was being discussed. Here is a question that will demonstrate your stupidity with world events – Putin (former KGB leader and current president of Russia) is acting like a former world leader Who am I talking about and what am I referring to? Don’t know do you, Chief Space Between the Ears?

            I am voting for whomever the Democrats place on the ballot. I see you voting for Rand Paul or Ted Cruz. And in state elections you will vote for Vitter the whore gitter and the French kissing family value man from the 5th District. So much for family values.

            Name the 200 job bills that the democrats are holding up. Just use the “S” or “HR” number. You can’t. The XL pipeline is your only “job bill” that you know about because someone told you.

            I do tire of being called a socialist but when I consider the source (a teabagging son of a bitch that doesn’t know his ass from a hole in the ground) I just ignore it. My concern is that WE LET THE BRAINLESS LIKE YOU VOTE!

            I must point out that you have yet to list my lies that you say I have uttered.

            In closing I won’t THANK about changing my views on abortion.

              Do you really think obuma is a great president and the democrat party is the best party in that they know what’s best for our country? Once and for all I would like your views on how this should be run.Do you believe in the constution or what parts should be changed? Should the President be able to change some laws with a stroke of his pen without congress having a say? Should the govt. be able to arrest a citizen of this country without just cause? Should we have an income tax or a sales tax that everyone would pay to fund our country,that would be the most fair way don’t you think? I could go on and on but that would over load your feeble mind you being a liberal socialist democrat don’t you think? Have a good nite dmf,you’ll wake up but it might be too late.

              • Donald Marion Fowler Says:

                I have never said that Obama was the greatest president ever, but he is certainly not the worst. Have you ever heard of Franklin Pierce or Herbert Hoover? Assessments of how a president performed should await the passage of time so that all pertinent information about his actions can be considered in context. Only a fool like you dares to judge without all of the evidence.

                During my 20-years of military service (which from what I understand you were able to avoid) I fought for the greatest document the world has ever known – THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION. Do you dare think that hauling logs during that time was in defense of the Constitution? Now, don’t get me wrong, hauling logs is an honorable profession that I would never knowingly denigrate but it ain’t fighting for your country. To paraphrase a line from a movie I enjoy, “unless you’ve taken up arms to defend your country, shut the F up and just thank us who did the fighting to guarantee your freedoms.”

                You know nothing about executive orders either. George W. Bushit signed 291 while Obama signed only 176. Now I know that Bushit served eight years but that is 36.4 executive orders per year: Obama in his six years is averaging 29.3 a year. Enough said. Bushit is the winner!

                Please be so kind as to name a few people who have been arrested without cause or due process. This seems to be one of those subject where your head is up your rectal region and you are just trying to find something to say.

                The state sales tax is for the state to operate its business, like repairing state roads and bridges and such. Mister Smart Ass, answer this question: without a federal income tax where will the money for our defense department come from to prepare for war and arm its personnel? you hear what others say and just parrot them as if they are speaking the truth according to the Gospel.

                As usual, you ignored everything I spoke of in my last post but you were able to get that old liberal socialist barb in. When you know nothing about a subject you just ignore it and hope no one notices. I asked you who did Putin remind you of and that drew a blank although you keep referring to Obama as that person. Think about it awhile and maybe when the smoke clears from around your empty head, the answer will come to you.

                Last but not least, I really find it hard to believe that Chief Space Between the Ears wrote the post to which I am responding. It’s too coherent and has none of the incorrect grammar or sentence structure which sets OLDMAN apart from the intelligent species.

    Mr. Fowler you need to read Blanche Whows piece in the local paper this week.Don’t you think she hit the nail on the head with this article? She knows how to get the truth out in a way that people understand.I’m proud she is from Jackson Parish.

      I thought she had been pecked to death like a chicken.

      • Donald Marion Fowler Says:

        One can only wish!

      • Anonymous Says:

        She states that Fox News is the only news network you get the truth on. I guess she hasn`t heard of InfoWars and News Before it happens. She wrote enough for half a book on Benghazi. Mostly plagiarizing Fox News. That is why she is too busy for local issues.

    • Donald Marion Fowler Says:

      Turd Brain, who is Blanch Whows?

  34. Oldman Says:

    Mr. Fowler,cat got your tongue, you are mighty quite today.

    • Donald Marion Fowler Says:

      Turd Brain, are blind? I have posted four or five articles directed just to you. Find and read them (or get someone to read them for you)

  35. Oldman Says:

    donald marion fowler,James Bradford has come out for Jonesboro Mayor. Runoff between Holder and Bradford? Mike Holder or James Bradford ,which one Mayor? Anyway you go,Jonesboro wins. The rest need to drop out. These two are the only ones with Jonesboro’s betterment in mind. What do you think?

    • Donald Marion Fowler Says:

      James Bradford or Mike Holder? I guess that you are for Blanch Whows. Isn’t she the tea baggers choice?

    • Anonymous Says:

      What about Renee? What is wrong with her?

      • Donald Marion Fowler Says:

        At the moment I have no opinion about any of the candidates except Car Wash Freddie. He’s a loser no matter which way you look at it. Renee? Fine person with experience but in Jonesboro, people tend to shy away from experience (just look at CTIC Thompson).

  36. Donald Marion Fowler Says:

    Listen up everyone, Oldman the Brainless Twit reads Blanch Whows in the Jackson Idiot. I guess that he likes being pecked to death at those tea bagging parties.

    • Oldman Says:

      Liberalist Socialist Democrat fowler, listen up,at least I pick the right people.Take away the wind and you would be a little pussy cat,I think we all know that here in Jonesboro.So be a good little boy and go get in your rocking chair and be quite, please.

      • Donald Marion Fowler Says:

        You still haven’t answered any of my questions so either your are waiting for someone to tell you the answers because you don'[t know the answers or you’re just plain dumb. I think both are correct. Putin did something today that one of your heroes did some time ago. Now, which of your heroes am I talking about. The reason that I call you turd brains is the fact that you don’t know shit from shinola.

      • Donald Marion Fowler Says:

        Chief Space Between the Ears (AKA Turd Brain), I just farted. Sure wish you were here to interpret it. The way it smells I think it was trying to make a point about you tea baggers.

        • Oldman Says:

          Liberal socialist democrat wannabe,you and obuma would make a nice pair,both of you are dumb as warmed over do do.I have asked you question after question and no answer yet.Always trying to be a smart arse.You have maybe called me more bad names 9to1 than I have.you are a book smart idiot that don’t his but from a hole in the ground. Good nite dumb arse.

          • Donald Marion Fowler Says:

            Chief Space Between the Ears (AKA Turd Brain),I have answered every one of your questions: you’re just too dumb to understand intelligent conversation. I ask you again -LIST ALL OF THE LIES THAT I HAVE TOLD. You can’t for I haven’t lied ONCE in all that I have said. You are such a pussy that you won’t post under your real name or is it because you are ashamed of it? Have you found out the name of the person Putin is acting like? I am going to explain why government has grown over the years – in 1790 the US population was just under 4,000,000: today it is over 300,000,000. Our nation has grown from 13 states to 50 and things like automobiles and air planes have been invented and there is a need for regulating these new fangled thangs (thought I would use language you might understand). You probably don’t see the difference so I will use a little down home explanation that you might understand: You get married it is just you and your wife and your need is for a small home. Children come along and there is a need for a larger home : more children come along and you need a bigger place to live. I doubt if you will even understand that. You are a wealth of stupidity and you need to cash in on that by KEEPING YOUR F’ING MOUTH SHUT. You are anti-abortion but you want to stop entitlement programs (and by your own words about 15% will die but that will be OK because they are probably worthless blacks which is OK with you, you self-righteous pigmy brain.) I have things to do now so adios Turd Brain. Go look for those lies that I have told. Go look for them. To make it fun you can pretend that you are looking for Easter Eggs. Don’t forget to get your wife something for tomorrow (I know she is not your mother but it would be a very nice gesture. I bought my wife a $3,000.00 wedding ring from Kay Jewelers to replace the one she has had for 53 years). Give my regards to Blanch Whows

            • Oldman Says:

              Listen Fool I’m not going back and look up every lie you told as it would take too long.I have better things to do with my time. Yes I’m anti-abortion and proud of it.I’m all for feeding people that are hungry.They can get a job and buy their cigs,beer,dope,gas,telephones,and not buy things with the food card.You can buy just about anything with the Card.A senator in NH wants to let them buy guns and ammo with the Card.He says they need better protection like everybody else.A person needs to be able to eat that’s fine.but not pay the rent and everything else with the Card.Listen you dumb arse hillbilly I did not say a thing bad about the Blacks,that’s just you trying to start trouble.Your parents must have home schooled you for you to be so dumb.they should have flushed you down the commode.Put the books down and get outside and learn something dumb arse.One more time you are a stupid liberal socialist democrat,good nite put your panties on so you will not mess the bed up.Your wife might let you borrow a pair of her old ones if you’ll be good.Good nite

              • Donald Marion Fowler Says:

                Turd Brain, just as I thought, no answer to anything. You are too GD stupid to put up a good argument about anything. A person with a single brain cell could remember negative things like lies but that appears to be beyond your capability. You love using the term liberal socialist democrat so much that I am beginning to believe you have an orgasm each time you use it. I am also beginning to wonder if you have to take off a shoe to count to eleven. Come on. Think of one lie that I have told., Just one, Turd Brain. Just one. I’ll give you a little help – I do have more than $14.27 in the bank, but not much more. Don’t tell me your feelings about blacks for they come through loud and clear in your writings. As I am allegedly a liberal socialist democrat, I see you as a dyed in the wool southern bigot. Name the senator from New Hampshire that would allow people on entitlement programs to buy guns and ammo with “The Card.” I remember you once wrote about life on Mars and then came back to write that you “actually did believe that at one time (recently too for you had a picture of a man with a backpack on and a lady Martian hanging out laundry in the background) but after some research you realized you were wrong.” I betcha you will say what I just wrote is not true. Now unless you have something to say about the problems in Jonesboro, I would rather you shut the F up and don’t respond to anything I write. You can bet that I won’t be mentioning your name for I feel that my association with a blithering idiot tea bagging sob will hurt my image. Adios for good, Turd Brain.

                • Oldman Says:

                  I’m sorry when I said the senator. from N.H. wanted to be able to buy guns with the card(food stamp card).I was wrong it was the N.H. Rep Timothy Horrigan a Democrat that is trying to get it passed.All Democrats are alike,all Liberalist Socialist Democrats are alike counting you Donald Marion Fowler.You all speak out of one side of your mouth and lie out of the other side.Do you not think it’s murder when you kill a baby that’s heart is beating and would be born a live if carried to full tterm? If you cause the woman to abort and the baby is dead like in a car wreak or a shooting then you are guilty of that babys murder or manslaughter .What’s the difference? It’s self serving idiots like you that are tearing the U.S.A.down. L.S.D. D.M.F.

                  • Donald Marion Fowler Says:

                    Turd Brain Fool, what is a “wreak? You’re so GD dumb it’s pathetic. Still won’t answer any questions but continue with the attack on a woman’s right to do with her body as she chooses. And you probably had another orgasm for you used the word liberal socialist democrat. And MFer I am getting tired of you calling me a liar without a shred of evidence to support the allegation. Either offer us some proof or shut the F up. Can you understand that, you Turd Brain? Go read some of the tripe your sweetheart Blanch Whows writes but don’t do it while driving. You might wreak.

                  • Donald Marion Fowler Says:

                    Hey SFB, Timothy Horrigan is a STATE REPRESENTATIVE in New Hampshire. New Hampshire has two representatives that serve in Washington, DC – CAROL SHEA-PORTER and ANN KUSTER (both are democrats). Horrigan has sponsored 8 bills and one comment in the NH house this year and not one of them has a thing to do with the food stamps. The one comment that he made was about the first senator elected from NH after the passage of the 17th Amendment to our Constitution (Constution as you like to spell it). As always you have trouble with facts. Must have gotten that information from fixed news or more probably just pulled it out of your ass (arse as you so politely say).

                    • Oldman Says:

                      Good nite Mr. Liberal Socialist Democrat Fowler,hope you rest well.The password is [ What does it matter now,anyway]
                      Remember that now when you vote in the next president election.

                • Oldman Says:

                  dmf the democrat party are keeping the blacks as slaves so they will vote for the Democrat party and keep the party going.They do this with all of the entitlement programs and freebies. The blacks would do a lot better if they just dropped the party and voted for the best person for the job.

                • Oldman Says:

                  Donald Marion Fowler,talk bad about me but just look at that trash you talk,I hope there are no young kids on here.If the young find out how you act you being a teacher and all,they will think it’s alright to act that way. I just hope you did not act this way while you were teaching. What do your wife,kids and grandkids think about this? Please try to act more civil,this is supposed to be a place to hashout different views and work to have a better place to live. Not a place to get mad at each other,I also am guilty of this to,quit talking this trash Ok? Good nite

                  • Donald Marion Fowler Says:

                    All I can see that you are guilty of is being dumb ass stupid. WHERE ARE THOSE LIES I AM SUPPOSED TO HAVE TOLD? WHERE ARE THE ANSWERS TO LEGIMATE QUESTIONS THAT I HAVE ASKED OF YOU? You just let your ass do your talking and can’t back up shit that you say.

            • Oldman Says:

              For road maintenance and other expenses,get rid of the income tax and then go to a national sales tax, it would be the only fair way to do it.Rich and poor would pay the same when they bought something.No tax on food but tax everything else.I’ll bet dmr would find something wrong with it.

  37. Oldman Says:

    After my post at 5:56am today I have not heard from Flower.Flower said that whom ever the Democrat party put up he would vote for that person no matter what he stood for or who he was.That is the wrong reason to be voting,don’t you think?That is voting for the Democrat party and not the person running to serve in that office.There could be a better person running from some other party that could be elected.We need to be looking beyond the party and be looking for the right person.The Democrat Party was a great party at one time,but they have gotten out of touch with the people and to some intent so has the Republican party. DMR is book smart but he is one more stupid fatboy.All ways bragging how smart, how well read,how many jobs he’s had,his years in the armed forces,and a pile of other things and he’s still a liberal Socialist Democrat.And a sorry one at that.

    • Oldman Says:

      I misspelled Donald Marion Fowler wrong. I wrote Flower and I meant Fowler.

    • Donald Marion Fowler Says:

      Assface, one normally waits for the political convention to see what type of platform the put together before announcing support for one candidate or another. Both conventions are yet to come so one does not know exactly what will or will not be on the platform. For the repugnicants, however, one knows what they stand for (do away with the affordable care act, cut entitlements, do away with several departments of the federal government (education and the epa for example), oppose equal pay for men and women, anti LBGT,
      oppose immigration reform, expand the military, oppose a minimum wage, just to name a few. That’s enough to turn one’s stomach and direct them toward a forward thinking party and my vote will be democratic and hopefully for Hillary Clinton. The repubnicant choices are simply barnyard fecal matter – Mark Rubio, Ted Cruz, Chris Christie, Jeb Bush, Rand Paul, and that idiot Scott from Wisconsin. Tea Bagging turds favor Rand Paul and I would imagine that would be your choice.

      You still have failed to answer any of the questions that I have put before you. You know, WHAT LIES HAVE I TOLD? WHO IS PUTIN ACTING LIKE? Here is a new one for you: WHY DIDN’T YOU SERVE YOUR COUNTRY DURING THE VIETNAM WAR? I know for a fact that log hauling is not an exemption, BUT COWARDICE MIGHT JUST BE. DON’T YOU EVER CHALLENGE MY MILITARY SERVICE (OR THAT OF ANY OTHER PERSON): WE HAD GUTS TO DO SO AND BELIEVED IN OUR COUNTRY

      My educational level is well established (as your lack of education is) and the number of jobs I have had and the pensions I draw are none of your GD business, Turd Brain. And you need to freshen up on the Constitution (or as you call it – the Constution). It would help your educational level if you ditched fixed news and rush Limbaugh and glenn beck and sean Hannity, and greta van ugly and find a good news source, one that isn’t so biased. And if I were you I would quit reading Blanch Whows.

      • Oldman Says:

        Other words you will vote for whoever the Democrat Party tells you to,that’s what it amounts to. You said yourself that you would vote democrat.One other thing I have never hauled the first load of logs in my life. There you go again talking about something you know nothing about.
        Goodnite L.S.D. D.M.F.

        • Oldman Says:

          One other thing [ What does it matter now,anyway ] bye

        • Donald Marion Fowler Says:

          Why don’t you respond to any of the things I said in my 5:47 of yesterday? Whether or not you have hauled logs is not the point. You are just a dumb ass ignorant hillbilly stuck in the mire that is called Jonesboro. Why didn’t you served in the military? What jobs have you ever had? Who got you to join the tea baggers? WHERE ARE THOSE LIES THAT I HAVE TOLD? As I am computer illiterate, you’re going to have to explain what LSD means. I know about the drug but in computer talk I am lost and when I don’t know what you are saying your words are lost. Clue me in, Turd Brain. Did your Martian buddies give that word to you while you believed there was live on Mars and did you pick it up in the comic books that you read faithfully? Gotta go see my doctor this AM, so little feller I will be gone most of the day. Thanks for helping pay for my doctors. You don’t know how much I appreciate it. With only $14.27 in the bank, I need all the help I can get. And in case I didn’t thank you before, thanks for the free hearing aid and the free glasses you poor tax payers paid for.

          • Oldman Says:

            [What does it matter now,anyway] ? L.S.D. D.M.F.

            • Donald Marion Fowler Says:

              You’re the one that doesn’t matter. Just an insignificant North Louisiana illiterate hillbilly. I am only speaking of you, not the other citizens of Jonesboro. Still afraid to answer my questions. Which fear is worse – answering my questions or serving your country during the Vietnam War? WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO LIST THE LIEST THAT I HAVE TOLD? You do realize that when the repugnicants cut entitlements, there goes your social security. Your support of them is sort of like shooting yourself in the foot.

  38. Donald Marion Fowler Says:

    Unless you are talking about the topic, I ain’t responding unless OLDMAN The Brainless One says something stupid, which to-date has been his every post. THE SFB DDA YAODMFAH WILL NOT ANSWER SIMPLE QUESTIONS ABOUT ACCUSATIONS HE HAS MADE ABOUT MY VERASITY. HE’S JUST A COWARD AND A DUMB ASS WHO IS GOING TO VOTE FOR THE PARTY THAT WANTS TO CUT OFF HIS SOCIAL SECURITY. TALK ABOUT STUPID.

    • Oldman Says:

      Bye. Bye ,don’t let the door hit you on the way out,D.L.S.D.D.M.F.
      Dumb Liberal Social Democrat Donald Marion Fowler if you know what that means

  39. Donald Marion Fowler Says:

    Wednesday, 21st of May has arrived and we anxiously await the arrival of Chris Smith’s little newspaper the Jackson Independent. The question is, will he allow to be printed anything about the issues affecting Jonesboro or will it be a large dose of Doc Jefferies and his belief that he is a newspaper person with something to tell. Maybe it will be his wife, Betty and her barely understandable dribble. Of course the tea baggers will a an article by Blanche Shows (nee Bishop) and she attempts to convince the readers that she knows something about state, national, and world events. Of course, there won’t be anything negative about anyone and certainly we will not learn an iota more about the missing docket, the land deal with simmons, the rape investigation, or the arrested councilman. Why bother the citizens with news they deserved. The Jackson Independent if fast becoming irrelevant and my guess is that it will soon vanish into oblivion where it belongs. I started to subscribe but was convinced that Charmin was a better investment.
