broke 1 year, 7 months ago on Library Board appointment discussion tabled

What about the Northwest Branch Library? The Library Board of Trustees managed to do that renovation without ANY help from the commissioners. What makes them think that now all of a sudden the Library Board is too dumb? I personally think Gaines and Hayes and just trying to make themselves look good because they refuse to admit they are initially responsible for the two library branches closing down. They are the ones who approved the library's MAJOR decrease in funding....and then want to act stupid and act like they had no idea. Plus, does Gloria Gaines have any professional insight on how to renovate a $5 million library? At this point I can't tell if she and John Hayes are really this stupid or if it's an act. Thinking it's the first.

broke 1 year, 8 months ago on Craft steps down from Library Board

Guess the Commissioners got what they wanted. So sad. Dr. Guy Craft was one of the few people that really cared about the library.

broke 1 year, 8 months ago on Hayes in, Black out on Library Board

2 board members term expiring....1 black male and 1 white male. Gene Black (white guy) never misses a meeting while Dr. Hill (black guy) misses them all the time. Yet, they choose to take Mr. Black off. Someone needs to check into the bylaws on that one.

broke 1 year, 11 months ago on Library director dies of apparent heart attack

I am a library employee and I can promise you that Ashley was the nicest, kindest boss to work for. She fought for her employees and truly cared for the libraries and its patrons. It really angers me that a few people from our community would harass her relentlessly about the library closing two locations. She was a wonderful person, boss and friend. She will be missed!

broke 2 years ago on Burr seeks library chairmanship

If Burr can claim he helped put the first man on the moon....then I want to claim that I helped invent the IPOD. Sounds about right to me.

broke 2 years ago on Burr seeks library chairmanship

The only way Burr can keep those librarys open is if he himself gets out his check book and pays the bills. What part of "the county has no money" does he not understand.

I have a child with Downs Syndrome and I can say 100% that prayer DOES work. Yes, my child still has Downs but he has overcome every thing that is put in his path. And that is ONLY because of prayer. He was born with cancer and it just poof went away...tell me that's not prayer. Yes, prayer works! God does not answer every prayer, and I don't know why but I do know that he makes no mistakes and my son is NO mistake. So, yes sir.....prayer works and my son would be dead with out it.
