To Dean Cockrum. Dean I lived at the corner of Elm Street across the street from Mark Twain school. I used to mow W.S. Babb's lawn. The Cutter and Rose were good friends of In-laws, Howard and Dorothy Griffin. Are you related to Nollie Jean Cockrum?. She was in my class at Charleston High.

I don't know what the parents from East Prarie teach their children about having children but its a shame when you can have a new car your one of your baby's daddy's pays for a home that you own , work a job when it's convenient and pay your Childsupport when you feel like it but expect your other baby daddy to pay each and every month on time because he owes you get a grip up there pay for your children the other parents are emotionally and finically responsible ALL the time we don't have new cars and homes and most of all we have jobs all the time not just when we feel like working I hope the persons this about do get to read this and understand what I'm saying Get It!

Just read the weekly article of Rep Hodges and saw what I consider is wrong with law makers. He touts bi-partisanship the out of the other side of his mouth trashes his opponent and the GOP. SE Mo needs to not vote for more of what we have in the current WH.

What Is Civil Rights? Do Civil Rights really exist today? It seems like to me that Our freedom that our soldiers die for every day are going to hell in a hand basket. What are they really fighting for? Lot’s of our American soldiers die, or get body parts blown off, for our freedom, Therefore, the freedom we as Americans have, we are losing everyday to the corrupt Government Affairs, And Law enforcement. Also once the soldiers arrive home some missing parts, They now are being treated like dogs. Growing up in the early 80’s I always heard that we as Americans would eventually loose our freedom and our country would become a Communism country. Our rights as a citizen are becoming less and less. Do we not own the right to choose something that pertains TO our own lives, Such as wearing seatbelts, smoking in our vehicles, and wearing helmets? I think the way the law enforcement handle things are uncouth, they lie, And basically do what they wish because, Us citizens will not fight for our CIVIL RIGHTS! LIKE our FOURTH ADDMENTMENT THE SEARCH AND SEIZIER LAW. The Law should ask permission to search your vehicle. So therefore, AS FAR AS I AM CONCEREND THEY GET AWAY WITH IT BECAUSE THERE IS NO ONE TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. LETS PULL TOGETHER AND PUT HONESTY PEOPLE IN THE LAW ENFORCEMENT WHEN ELCTION TIME COMES AROUND. AS FAR AS MISSISSIPPI COUNTY !! PLEASE HELP ME TO GET THIS DONE. THERE ARE SO MANY LIARS,CHEATERS, AND THIEFS IN OUR COURTHOUSE AND SHERRIFS DEPT. OH YEA AND LETS NOT FORGET OUR HATEFUL DISTRIC ATTORNEY DARRN CANN.. I BELIEVE THAT ITS WRONG TO WORK IN THE COURT HOUSE AND LIE SO GOOD , AND GET AWAY WITH IT, USING THE COURTHOUSE PHONES FOR PERSONAL CALLS, WRITING BAD CHECKS AND THEN ASKING FOR THEM TO BE COVERD. OH DON’T FORGET TAKING IT UP ON HER SELF TO PUT TAXES ON HER X-HUSBAND TOPAY FOR 2 BOATS THAT IS TITTLED IN HIS DAUGHTERS NAME. THAT’S JUST SOME OF THE WRONGFUL DOING INT THE COURT HOUSE. I BELIEVE WE NEED GOOD HONEST PEOPLE And God fearing Peolple IN THE COURT HOUSE AND THE SHERRIFFS DEPT. IF YOU ARE WILLING TO FIGHT WITH ME ON THIS BATTLE. I WANT YOU TO CONTACT ME with coments. EMAIL ADDRESS; Peace_salon420@YAHOO.Com Before the new elections come up! “We the People” That Place the people in Government? Lets look for the really smart, wealthy and honest people. Here in Mississippi county.! We need to find out who is best qualified for the positions that are the most honest people. So lets start in some of the churches around, excluding Elm street Baptist. Because that’s where most of the untrustworthy law enforcement go to pretend , just to make them look good! They Will be Judged according to their works,”saith the Lord”

Americans net worth is down 40% in the last 3 years. Does that sound like the private sector is doin "fine"? Nov is the time for people to express their disapproval/approval of current Federal policies. I suggest we use common sense, not feelings when we pull the lever. Ask yourselves if this is the America we want or expect and vote.

Local area Landlord decides to immediately kick another Veteran out into the street! When are veterans going to get a fair shake? Especially when the veterans rent wasn't late are nor due? this poisonist landlord entered the premisses without permission nor at a proper time demanding that the veteran immediately get out or else this person would have them removed by legal force! It was a good thing that the veteran was decently dressed when the Landlord took their very own key and unlocked the door. There was some 13 days left on the rental agreement which had been paid up in full. The Landlord attempted to claim they did not recieve the claimed late rental amount in which the veteran had documentation that proved otherwise! Why must our veterans continue to fight a battle like whats currently going on overseas are even Vietnam as it were right here in our homeland called America! Why must the people who defend your country and mine have to fight for the basic rights which most Americians, who have never laid their lives on the line except as . The Federal Goverment Of Our People has stopped all proper Military Burials We as Veterans must carry our own insurance to recieve a Honorable Military Funeral. So in otherwords' although a person becomes a veteran and served the country honorably without his are her own burial insurance the amount written on thier DD214 isnt worth anything or the paper it was actually printed on! Some may claim that this statement isnt even accurate' to prove otherwise simply ask a family that had to pay for their loved one to properly be interred'. This might be getting off the track of the aforementioned issue of becoming homeless'. How could those who have never been a veteran know what a veteran must go through in their every day battle to survive on their home soil that they help protect. When will it ever end!

I have just recently moved back. I have to agree w/Alicia on her comment. The trailor court is atrocious. What happened to E.P. having a dog catcher? The dogs are running wild and have their own housing.


Submitted By: AliciaSubmitted: 1/1/2011
the traillor court on s martin by morgans grocery has literally gone to the dogs. its in worse shape than the dog houses on the outside of the trailors. isnt there a building code or some kind of inspection that has to be passed yearly by hud or city inspectors. one of the trailors is kept open for the dogs to have access to the inside. im thinking that if the alderman lived close by that this eyesore wouldnt be lookin this way

Pic of Mark Twain brought back lots of memories. It was in my old neighborhood and I attended 1-5st grades, 51-55. Buck's was a couple blocks walk for a five year old for candy. Miss Clack was my 1st grade teacher. Cutter and Rose Bryant lived across the street and Rose would invite me over for pancakes, she was a true treasure. WS and Vivian lived on two house from mine and were great neighbors. Living in Texas now and often think of Charleston. Dean Cockrum
