   No falling out with my good friend James whatsoever.  And if you believe my only support is the Union, its obvious you don't know me. I do my best to represent everyone,  not just the Union. I promise nothing but do my very best to accomplish whats asked of me. I work for the Citizens and could give 2 cents about a personal agenda....

Does anyone know of any businesses considering the cleared land near the Credit Union (across from Walmart)?

The Steelworkers did not endorse Sheldon Butts or any other candidate. The AFL-CIO did.
Big difference.....

As a sitting council member you have a responsibility to enforce the zoning ordianace that council put in place that the steel mill property was to be downzoned after being idle for over a year. Are you saying you are not going to do your job?
One more side thought for you Tupelo the only person the steel workers endorsed did loose. Maybe I was wrong about the union influence? I'm glad I was wrong.

Odd man out???? Also, I never said the mill wouldn't reopen. What I said is that we must start to plan and begin discussions if it does not. I will always support those workers and the mill. Anyone heard of a potential new buyer???
If they're liquidating assets, mill managers should contact the mayor and municipal administrator about the city buying the mill's office complex for use as a new city hall.  There are many beautiful trees on the property and it has more than adequate office space and parking.   Less expensive for taxpayers than building on the old site, and without the foundation problem  More square footage leaving room for growth.  Quick sale for property otherwise difficult to market for the mill. (Who else would want it?)  Win-win.

Where is Paige the racist Sawyer? I would have thought he would be running around screaming how the city needs him back. I don't think I've seen him on Front street the whole week.

So the betting window is now open. Who will win the primary today?

I bet Tupelo is the odd man out along with no chance for Lee Padgett. I think Lee would be a great city councilman but the Scovile machine will never let that happen. Tupelo pissed off the steel workers with his comments about the time has come for the mill to move on.

Hey speaking of Lee Padgett whatever happened to the guy that got arrested for picking up Scovile's campaign signs after he got beat for mayor? Funny how we never hear about the ending of these cases.
The rumor mill on front street is the equipment is all sold and it should be leaving soon. Anybody have concrete information?
There are a bunch of cars parked in the lot next to the steel mill's offices.  What that means, I don't know.  But one thing is certain, given the city's zoning ordinance, any plan to reopen the mill is likely to become a hot issue in the upcoming municipal election.  Fasten you seat belts, candidates, you may be in for a rough ride.
