WHITE SPRINGS THINKING ABOUT THE FEDERAL CIVIL RIGHTS SUIT.
On Monday morning August 3rd at 9 AM there will be a special town council meeting called for the purpose of closing out the Tropical Storm Debbie Grant.
Here’s what I want to know and will ask the following questions at the meeting. Does this mean that we, the Town, still have money due us from the FEMA Grant to repair Jewett Street and 1st Street? Why was it reported differently in the Newpaper attributable to the Interim town manager Mrs. Heath? Do we owe the County still $90,000 plus dollars? Why was this debt overlooked by Pam, our supposed excellent bookkeeper and Powell and Jones our purportedly even better auditor? I believe neither one of them is worth what we are paying them for.
I will not stop until I get the answers to these questions. You listening Rhett?
Is the people’s business. Heard a rumor today that Shirley, the erstwhile Christian lady, that what gets said in town hall stays in town hall. I am ready to take her to court for such a saying, if it is true. I have asked her to confirm that she said such a stupid thing. But since she is a consummate liar I doubt she will tell me the truth.
Town hall is the people’s hall and the Town’s business is the people’s business. It is that simple. And if the Christian Liar, Shirley, wants to dispute such then let us go to trial. I’m ready.
For Megan. This is exactly the type of BS your client believes is right. Don’t want more suits, stop the BS.
I cannot believe that it was stated in the Jasper News by our interim Town Manager Shirley Heath that duplicate payments had been made by FEMA (One to Hamilton County and one to White Springs) for street reconstruction in White Springs. It was stated that we may have to return money back to FEMA. Bob Farley was blamed for not closing the account and there was an excuse that this happened to other cities due to the Government shutting down. I could find nothing where FEMA shut down and find the information again to be a fabrication.
Although we are showing the original bids Hamilton County secured below, Joe contacted Hamilton County and found that the Town of White Springs still owes Hamilton County $92,661. The Total bill was $112,661 but Hamilton County forgave $20,000. What did the Town do with the money they received from FEMA? Did they place it in the General Fund? Who will pay Hamilton County?

Motion by Commissioner Brown to approve for approximately ten (10) tons of asphalt to be placed on 12th Ave. SE and for County Coordinator Danny Johnson to issue a letter to Mr. Bell stating the approval of the Board. Second was made by Commissioner Oxendine, motion carried with a unanimous vote. 107th BLVD. (BAISDEN LAKE ROAD) – Commissioner Smith advised the Board that the bridge report for the bridge on 107th Blvd. will require extensive repairs. The Board stated that hopefully the bridge repair can be coordinated with the FDOT Scrap program. SE 113TH BLVD. – Commissioner Smith also advised the Board that the new milling that was placed on SE 113th Blvd. needs to be reworked. Mr. Bailey advised the Board that the issue appears to be the compaction of the existing ground and that tack should be added to the milling surface.
THIS ISSUE IS EVEN MORE PRONOUNCED IN MY THINKING AT THIS TIME SINCE THE MARINE WHOSE DAUGHTER (IN LA PLATA, MD SCHOOL ) REC’D A FAILING GRADE IN HISTORY BECAUSE SHE REFUSED TO TAKE THE ISLAM STUDY COURSE …INCIDENTALLY NO ALTERNATIVE COURSE WAS OFFERED. HER MARINE FATHER BROUGHT THIS TO THE FOREFRONT ….SINCE HE FOUGHT IN IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN , AND IS VERY AWARE OF HOW DANGEROUS THIS RELIGION IS…DEFINITELY NOT ONE OF PEACE.
I know there are some of you that are Democratic, and love Obama, but this is for Christians first, politics later. I do pray that it doesn’t offend anybody with the truth of the message, but it has to be sent. If you love your Lord first and your politics later, then you will appreciate this message. If you don’t, I’m sorry I judged you wrong.
When we get 100,000,000, that’s one hundred million willing Christians to BOND together, voice their concerns and vote, we can take back America with God’s help. Become one of the One hundred million… Then let’s get 200 million. It can be done just by sending this email to your friends. Do the math. It only takes a single willing heart and a fed up SOUL. God Bless America and Shine your light on Her!
i am on the stump for DONALD TRUMP. We need to take our government back and Republicans or Democrats are not proving any more than that they are career politicians.
But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
The more I read responses from our interim Town Manager, and the more I have read various items of paperwork, I do not know how our Town Officials can say they are true “Christians”.
They complain about Rev. Joe Griffin because he believes in transparency in government; they lie continually to protect their former lies; they do not care who they hurt whether by large unfounded charges to the citizens because of their mistakes they need to cover; They breed various stories to others which are outright lies and fabrications; they discrimination against certain people and commit fraud against others. These are some of the Christians in White Springs who are your officials.
Per Mr. Tipton, transparency leads to integrity and integrity is enough. Where is the integrity in White Springs?
The way it stands, who with integrity or those who abide by the law, would wish to work in White Springs. The ditch keeps getting bigger and the Town Players more corrupt each day. You might as well make Shirley Heath a full town manager because I do not expect there will be change. There will never be transparency and that is why we have our blog and request 119’s for because there is a tendency to discriminate against certain people and keep others out of the loop of transparency in order to cover up your lies.
Keep Shirley Heath as your interim Town Manager because she has been proven to be the Town’s description of a Christian. And who cares about efficiency, Pam can remain as she is and sooner or later if the State does not catch what is going on in White Springs, God surely will.
Karin for the blog.
It’s FRAUD is what it is, perpetrated by White Springs on the shareholders of British Petroleum. Want a story, read how one citizen cried foul when his town told a big whopping LIE.
Here’s the law:
817.03 Making false statement to obtain property or credit.—Any person who shall make or cause to be made any false statement, in writing, relating to his or her financial condition, assets or liabilities, or relating to the financial condition, assets or liabilities of any firm or corporation in which such person has a financial interest, or for whom he or she is acting, with a fraudulent intent of obtaining credit, goods, money or other property, and shall by such false statement obtain credit, goods, money or other property, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor of the first degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083
In the latest edition of the Jasper News it said that the town had applied for a cost reimbursement of lost tourist revenue of $40,000.00. This happens to be an out and out LIE. We’re 100 miles from the coast for goodness sake. No Petroleum washed up on the Banks of the Suwannee River this far in-land and even if it did it didn’t affect tourism one little bit.
The town has made a false claim to secure money from British Petroleum which in addition to FRAUD is also Insurance Fraud.
More to come on this story as the facts come in. And Mayor Miller (at the time) oversaw this travesty of lies perpetrated by the self confessed pedophile Townsend.
It doesn’t look as if the council will be taking any hiring action soon, at least not me. I have been following your blog and noticed some disturbing news. At this point (being powerless to help) I will say this: the next town manager will have his/her hands full; however, the very first thing that needs to be accomplished is the establishment of a citizen oversight committee made up of members of the community and representative (diverse) of the population. The committee should have direct access to the town manager and the council; it should have access to all town business and records, and its members should have the right to speak at council meetings as a group, or as individuals. Remember, transparency is the first step to integrity, and integrity is enough.
