HERE WE GO AGAIN. PAULINE VERSUS TWO CROOKS.


IT HAS ALL BEEN SAID BEFORE…AND BEFORE THAT,  AND EVEN BEFORE THAT. AND SO, ONCE MORE MAESTRO, IF YOU PLEASE.

YOU HAVE TWO CORRUPTEES , BOTH GUILTY OF VARIOUS OFFENSES. BOTH GUILTY OF CASTING ASIDE THE OATH THEY TOOK (… ENDING IN ” SO HELP ME GOD”), UPON ENTERING THEIR OFFICE OR POSITION.

BOTH SEEKING, FINDING AND FEATHERING THEIR NEST AT THE TROUGH OF PUBLIC TRUST AND TAXPAYER LARGESS, AND USING EVERY OPPORTUNITY TO INCREASE THEIR FINANCIAL CONDITION BY HOOK OR CROOK/ LAWFULLY OR UNLAWFULLY, AND  IT NOT MATTERING WHICH.

ON THE OTHER HAND, YOU HAVE A CANDIDATE, A FEMALE CANDIDATE, FORMER TREASURER, CLERK, CLERK/TREASURER WHO NEVER HAD AN AUDIT “TO BOUNCE” NOR HAVE HER HONESTY QUESTIONED BY ANYONE IN ANY MANNER EXCEPT BY HER POLITICAL RIVALS AND THEIR COHORTS. WHICH IS “REALLY SUMP’N” IN THE BURG.

PERHAPS WITH HER TWO LOUD AND BAD MOUTHS GONE, SHE WILL DO QUITE WELL. SHE HAS THE KNOWLEDGE,THE CAPABILITY,THE EXPERIENCE AND THE HONESTY TO DO THE JOB, AND HAS DONE IT WELL. IT IS EITHER THE LADY, OR “THEM THAR HAIRY LEGS.”

IN THIS PRIMARY ELECTION-TUESDAY MAY 22- THE VOTERS WILL ELECT OR REELECT A CIRCUIT COURT CLERK.FROM RUSS COMPTON TO KAY ARTHUR,FROM KAY ARTHUR TO LINDA KAY BAKER. DECADE AFTER DECADE, AFTER DECADE–THE PEOPLE OF BOYD COUNTY HAVE HAD THE DEDICATED SERVICES OF CIRCUIT COURT CLERKS. FOLLOWING SEVERAL YEARS AGO AFTER RUSS AND KAY, LINDA BAKER HAS CONTINUED, WITHOUT INTERRUPTION, THE STELLAR SERVICE AND PUBLIC ATTITUDE ESSENTIAL FOR THIS IMPORTANT OFFICE. AT THIS TIME IT WOULD BE THE “HEIGHT OF FOLLY” TO CHANGE ANY THING ABOUT THIS OFFICE. DEDICATED,STELLAR SERVICE IS LEARNED AND PRACTICED IN THIS OFFICE. WHY SHOULD WE CHANGE IT FOR AN UNKNOWN ENTITY?? LINDA KAY HAS, AND IS, DOING A FIND JOB; THE WAY SHE WAS TAUGHT BY RUSS COMPTON AND KAY ARTHUR. LEAVE HER BE.

YET ONE MORE OF THOSE ANNOYING, UBIQUITOUS ELECTIONS. DAMN!


WITH THE PRIMARY ELECTION ABOUT SIX WEEKS OFF FOR A COUPLE OF RACES–THE CIRCUIT COURT CLERK AND THE COMMONWEALTH ATTORNEY–THE MOST PROMINENT, “FEELERS” ARE ALREADY AT WORK WITH VARIOUS CONTACTS; GETTING “THE LAY OF THE LAND” FROM VARIOUS SOURCES TO PERFECT THEIR GAME PLANS. BOTH OFFICES ARE BEING CONTESTED BY PEOPLE OF NOTE. BOTH SHOULD BE VERY INTERESTING.

THE CIRCUIT CLERK’S OFFICE IS BASICALLY A “PEOPLE” POSITION,DEALING IN RECORD KEEPING FOR THE DISTRICT AND CIRCUIT COURTS, AND ETC., MUCH IN THE MANNER OF THE COUNTY COURT CLERK.

THE COMMONWEALTH ATTORNEY’S OFFICE IS ALSO A PEOPLE POSITION, BUT BASICALLY DEALS WITH REAL OR ALLEGED CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR. IN THE BOYD COUNTY CIRCUIT AND ,INDEED, BOYD COUNTY’S CAPITOL CITY, THERE IS WORK TO DO. PAST DUE.

BEING THE ULTIMATE DECIDERS, THE VOTERS WILL MAKE THEIR MARK.

BOTH POSITIONS ARE POSITIONS OF TRUST, CAPABILITY, WILLINGNESS AND DEDICATION TO THE JOB, …AND THE PROVEN EFFECTIVENESS OF THEIR EFFORTS IN THEIR IN THEIR PREVIOS TERM(S)

STILL STUCK IN THE POO POO OF 1950’S OUTLAWRY!


I CANNOT BRING MYSELF TO ACTUALLY BELIEVE THAT AFTER FOUR YEARS OF EFFORT IN PUBLISHING THIS BLOG, DETAILING THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH OF THE 59 CONTINUOUS YEARS OF CITY-KILLING CORRUPTION BY AND BETWEEN THE BOOTLEGGERS/GAMBLERS / AND EVERY MAYOR EVER ELECTED SINCE 1953, ALONG WITH THE MAJORITY OF CITY COUNCIL FOR THE SAME NUMBER OF YEARS, HAS BROUGHT ABSOLUTELY NO PROGRESS IN ELIMINATING THIS OUTLAWRY, OR THE ELECTED AND APPOINTED OUTLAWS.DAVEY IS STILL PULLING THE STRINGS, WITH HIS ERSTWHILE PARTNER AND COMPADRE/ CONVICTED BOOTLEGGER/RUMRUNNER “RANDY” AS MAYOR OF THE CITY…WITH AN EVER OBLIGING COUNCIL AT BOTH THEIR FINGERTIPS.

EACH GAMBLER,BOOTLEGGER AND BOOKMAKER PLEDGED ABSOLUTE LOYALTY TO THE ELECTION AND REELECTION OF A MAJORITY OF COUNCIL AND THE SAME TO WHOMEVER “THEY SELECTED AS MAYOR,” WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT WHOMEVER WAS ELECTED WOULD SEE THAT RAY CASTLE WOULD REMAIN “CHIEF OF POLICE” (AS THE ENFORCER OF THE MAYOR’S AND COUNCIL’S PACT WITH THE BOOTLEGGERS.)

TO HAVE THE PACT IN PLACE, IT WAS NECESSARY THAT CHIEF CASTLE REMAIN “THE CHIEF.” THE LAST TIME THAT CHIEF CASTLE RAN FOR OFFICE (ACCORDING TO BOYD COUNTY CLERK RECORDS) WAS 1949. IMMEDIATELY AFTER SOLIDIFYING THE PACT IN LATE 1952–THE YEAR BOOZE WAS VOTED OUT–THE MAYOR AND COUNCIL (LAWFULLY) CHANGED THE MANNER OF SELECTING A POLICE CHIEF. REQUIRING THE POLICE CHIEF TO BE AN “APPOINTED” POSITION FOR A TWO YEAR PERIOD, INSTEAD OF AN ELECTED POSITION FOR A “FOUR YEAR TERM.”

“KEEP RAY AS CHIEF AND WE…THE BOOTLEGGERS, WILL WORK FOR, VOTE FOR AND PROVIDE WHATEVER IS NECESSARY TO SEE THEM ELECTED.” —EVERY MAYOR ELECTED OR APPOINTED SINCE 1952—AND THE MAJORITY OF EVERY COUNCIL ELECTED OR APPOINTED SINCE 1952 HAVE STAYED THIS COURSE…BOOTLEGGER,GAMBLER AND BOOKMAKER ‘FRIENDLY,’ SOLELY TO PERPETUATE THEMSELVES AND THEIR CHOSEN SUCCESSORS IN OFFICE’.” SIXTY YEARS AND COUNTING…

FROM A STRONG,VIBRANT CITY OF 5000 POPULATION, A HIGH SCHOOL, THREE ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS, THREE DRUG STORES,FIVE SERVICE STATIONS, THREE FULL SERVICE AUTO GARAGES, THREE CAR LOTS, NEW FURNITURE STORES,DRY GOODS, CLOTHING STORES, HALF A DOZEN GOOD RESTAURANTS, TWO HOTELS AND MORE. WE NOW HAVE WHAT??? WHAT? WHAT DO WE HAVE NOW?

WE HAVE ONE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, THREE FAST FOOD SHOPS AND ONE DRUG STORE. NOTHING MORE. NOT EVEN A YOUTH CENTER. ALL, THANKS TO THE PACT.THANKS TO THE BOOTLEGGERS, GAMBLERS AND BOOKKEEPERS, CROOKED COPS AND ONE CORRUPT ADMINISTRATION OF MAYOR AND COUNCIL AFTER ANOTHER MAINTAINING THEIR ALLEGIANCE TO THE PACT, THE CITY DESTROYING PACT. THE UGLY AND OBSCENE CITY-KILLING PACT…ALL WITH THE SCREAMING SILENCE OF THIRTEEN CHURCH MEMBERSHIPS, THEIR MINISTERS, PASTORS,REVERENDS, DEACONS, ELDERS AND PREACHERS…ALONG WITH AN AMEANABLE AND

Hasn’t Gorney worked out the details yet?


Hasn’t Gorney worked out the details yet? My my, just a little knife cut–according to the “street.” Also, according to the street, JJ appeared on the Huntington TV news, as one fellow put it, “as a deer caught in the headlights of a semi!” Perhaps he was just pondering how he and Gorney and Mayor Bootlegger/Rumrunner were going to handle this. Ahh, the privileges of power and position. Elders of this type of situation will silently come to the fore and make the adjustments with the “higher powers that be,” a mere two blocks away, and all will be well again in the bootlegging capitol of Boyd County. It has been so for almost 60 years, and thusly, will be so again, and again…and again. ‘Taint it the truth!

OOPS!! “WHO IN THE HELL CALLED FOR THE COPS TO COME WITH THE MEDICS?”


THE LOCAL ELBOW BENDERS “ON THE CORNER” AT DIVISION, HAD A “RICK PERRY MOMENT” AS IN “OOPS” WHEN A MEDIC WAS CALLED TO THE LODGE TO TREAT A KNIFE WOUND.

DIALING “9,” THE CALLER EXPLAINED THAT THE VICTIM HAD A KNIFE WOUND, THAT HE TOOK BLOOD THINNING MEDICINE AND THAT THEY COULD NOT STOP THE BLEEDING!

THE CALLER WAS NOT AWARE OF THE MEDICAL RESPONDERS OBLIGATIONS IN SUCH MATTERS. THEREFORE, WHEN THE CALLER MADE MENTION OF A “KNIFE WOUND,” THE RESPONDERS FOLLOWED REQUIRED PROCEDURE.

WHEN THE MEDICAL RESPONDERS APPEARED AT THE LODGE, THEY HAD–ACCORDING TO PROCEDURE–BROUGHT A COP. WHOOPS!

I HOPE WOODY WAS NOT SERIOUSLY HURT AND WILL RECOVER NICELY, BUT I DO HAVE OTHER THOUGHTS ON THE MATTER. AS THE LODGE HAS BEEN “DOWN” SEVERAL DAYS, AS IN “CLOSED,” WHETHER THE LODGE IS JUST BIDING TIME, WAITING IT OUT AND SEEING WHAT THE FALLOUT WILL BRING, AND ALL THAT STUFF GURNEY WILL HAVE TO DEAL WITH BEFORE REOPENING.

WHAT ALL THIS REALLY BOILS DOWN TO–ON THE WHOLE, IN THE MAIN AND THE WHOLE SHEBANG IS CLEAR. WHO WAS THE COP? IS HE CITY OR COUNTY? IS HE HONEST OR CORRUPT? HE SAW IT ALL, HE KNOWS THE LAW. WHAT MANNER OF COP IS HE? THE NEXT FEW DAYS WILL CLEARLY DISCLOSE THE ANSWER.

lICENSE HAVE BEEN AVAILABLE TO THE LODGE SINCE JULY 15,1998 (FOR MORE THAN 13 YEARS.) WE’LL SEE, WON’T WE?
lICENSE REFERENCED: KRS 243.270, SINCE JULY 15, 1998.

BUT, THAT WOULD MEAN THEY WOULD HAVE TO PAY TAXES! GRACIOUS, WE CAN’T HAVE THAT. ALCOHOL TAX, CHARITABLE GAMING TAX AND ALL THAT BUSINESS FILING WITH THE kENTUCKY REVENUE CABINET. MERCY ME! WHAT A BUNCH TROUBLE…AND WE HAVE NEVER BEEN BOTHERED WITH ALL THAT STUFF. WHY, WE HAVENT PAID SALES TAX SINCE BEFORE LOUIE NUNN TOOK IT FROM THREE CENTS TO A NICKLE.

AND OF COURSE, WE COULD NOT HAVE OUR ONE ARM BANDITS,OR ONE BUTTON BANDITS. THEY REPRESENT AT LEAST HALF OF OUR TOTAL REVENUE! WE JUST COULDN’T AFFORD THAT. GET GORNEY! GET’M ALL. PULL OUT ALL THE STOPS. GET ON IT!!!
