Lawrence County Fiscal Court 4/17/18

SHORT COURT!

SHORT COURT? FC eight minute meeting. SHORT COURT? FC eight minute meeting.


The Lawrence Co Fiscal Court met for the regular meeting Tuesday morning at the old Lawrence Co. Courthouse and they weren't fooling around.

The 10:00 am meeting lasted eight minutes. 

One local political wag said the court won't do anything that would slightly affect their chances in the Primary. All four magistrates and Judge/Exec. Osborn are up for election in six weeks, and all have opposition. In fact Magistrate Earl Boggs, a veteran politician from the Blaine area is challenging for the judge/exec. position in the Republican Primary. 

Those in attendance were Judge John Osborne, Magistrate Rick Blackburn, Magistrate Earl Boggs, Magistrate John Lemaster, Magistrate Morris Howard, Sheriff Garett Roberts and County Attorney Mike Hogan.

Louisa has really went down hill in the past few years. As the biggest city/town in LC it is recognized as the main part of LC. I don’t live in LC but used to and its just so hard to travel through there anymore and see practically nothing anymore. All I hear about is drugs drugs drugs. I really hate to see what Louisa has become. Please step up community powers and get this back to a respectable town.

Quoting BSNreader:
Wonder why the Big Sandy can write a news article without putting their political opinions in it? Oh yeah, that’s right. They are a newspaper rather than a news blog.....



Big Sandy News? I didn’t know it still existed. Tons of news organizations put their political opinions on things. Do you watch or actually read the news, 75% opinion on the news they’re reporting. I for one like the news and opinions, it’s great for debating on the news that has been reported. No one reads BSN anymore.

Maybe they didn't have any people there for public comments because the circus was in town at the last one!
