Wilfed Boykin - A dedicated teacher vs Class Clown
(commented on May 7th, 2020 @ 1:47 pm)
Wil was in his youth also an opera singer and a Spiritualist. Several uncanny things happened while I was in his presence. At one time in 2008, we were walking together in London around Charing Cross Road, animatedly discussing the opera singer Janet Baker, when we both simultaneously and abruptly halted in front of a staircase that led up to a nondescript second-story. We somehow were strangely and in fact absolutely COMPELLED to ascend the staircase, and at the top, uninvited, we opened an unmarked door, and suddenly and unexpectedly found ourselves in an old-fashioned London gentleman's club, with damask red carpeting, flocked wallpaper and low ceilings. There were older gentlemen seated about, reading newspapers and taking tea. But, to our utter amazement and delight, on all the walls were maybe a hundred photographs of... Janet Baker!

Richardson's Resolution to Re-open Beaufort County Fails 2 to 5
(commented on May 5th, 2020 @ 5:03 pm)
True conservatives need to realize that just because we won an election doesn't mean we the war. This would have passed if the conservatives had been deployed. Phone calls by wealthy self centered babyboomer elites won this one because they organized and had the phones ringing off the hook. We have to play smarter.

Beaufort County's Financial Wizzards
(commented on April 21st, 2020 @ 9:09 am)
Thank you for correcting me for my lack of understanding of your actions and statements. I know you from your appearances on the Commissioner's Meetings and your statements on this site. You don't know me! I am not a liberal progressive using tactics "right out of the ultra liberal socialist play book" or the "liberal play book". I am also not an ultra conservative who hides behind the same fear mongering as the ultra left. I am also not intimidated by the rhetoric of either side. President Trump is my president, and his policies by and large reflect my vision of the direction America should be headed. He makes some outrages statements at times, and that is frustrating to me. But he is getting most of his Agenda for America done.
My hope is that you could concentrate on all the people of Beaufort County, conservative and liberal, republicans and democrats and unaffiliated to get done what is the best for our county without labeling them. Once elected you are a representative of all the people not just the "party". Thank-you and I look forward to all of my commissioners working together to keep Beaufort County Great!
Beaufort County's Financial Wizzards
(commented on April 19th, 2020 @ 4:27 pm)
Hey mr. richardson. What is a wizzard?
And, since you didn't ask any questions, that makes you as worthy of your criticism as everyone else. And while I am at it, just what have you done in 14 years to help the citizens of Beaufort County. You have contributed to the 22 percent increase in taxes by not offering
a. a better alternative or
b. a compromise.
You have duped your supporters into thinking you have tried to save them money on their taxes, when all you've done is cast a no vote to issues that were going to pass anyway and you knew it. You can't take credit for protecting your supporter's money when you have not provided wise financial counsel other than "I am not voting for that, and I'll tell you why." And your why is simply that you don't want to, or you don't like the person(s) who submitted the idea or it looks like you voted to not raise taxes.
I for one, see you as the sham you are. And I hope the new board of commissioners is not foolish enough to elect you as the new chairman. OR maybe they should and then your tenure as commissioner will come to an abrupt end as your total lack of leadership and wisdom will be further exposed.

Once again: WHERE WAS DON COX?
(commented on March 5th, 2020 @ 4:03 pm)
Wow! Don Cox had the "nerve" to call someone lazy? He is one of the laziest men I have ever seen. He stays on facebook the majority of the day trying to get some recognition and praise for himself through his constant food post,etc.

Don Cox is one of the most negative individuals I have ever encountered. He is an egotistical, know-it-all, but he doesn't know much at all in reality.

Governor Cooper Vetoes HB 370
(commented on April 2nd, 2020 @ 1:58 pm)
Stan Deatherage I would encourage your readers to look up the interview on the internet with Fox News! They report we decide. I am a conservative Republican and I support the core values of the Republican Party!
Governor Cooper Vetoes HB 370
(commented on April 2nd, 2020 @ 1:56 pm)
I would like to comment on one of the questions in this poll regarding HB 370.

Speaking of left wing dreams we have a sheriff of Beaufort County that said on Fox News itís a sheriffs right to hold or not hold a criminal illegal for ICE. He guesses they the sheriffs are doing whatís in their heart he said. I say A sheriffís right over the safety and welfare of the citizens of this county, our state, our country they are to serve and protect?? Isnít that in direct contrast on what Trump is doing? Absolutely!! Trump called out Cooper for vetoing the bill and our sheriff saying itís a sheriffs right! What is going on here?
Side note- as of now holding criminal illegals for ICE is a request to the sheriffs- the N.C. state representatives voted and passed a bill called HB 370 requiring sheriffs to hold criminal illegals for ICE and not release them back on the streets and in our counties. The democrat governor vetoed it. And this was our sheriffs response. He didnít stand against Cooper vetoing the bill instead he said its a sheriffs right to not hold them. Itís on Fox News video. You can look it up! Unbelievable and wrong!!!
And might I add as long as this is only a request letís say a criminal illegal is released back on the street by a sheriff that saids he will work with ICE although just a request and he releases a criminal illegal back on the street that commits another crime perhaps of a violent nature. The sheriff can then say well it was only a request and he slipped through by accident. I didnít have to hold them. Itís not a thou shalt itís only a request!!
A sheriffs right over the safety of the citizens of our county. Need I say more? Something is not right!!!
Johnny Anderson Addresses Beaufort County Commissioners Regarding Cory Anderson's Death
(commented on February 18th, 2020 @ 8:39 am)
February 17,2020

As much as we wanted to call, we could not! It is against the law. It is policy.

This is not an exact quote as we donít recall word for word but this is what we were told
by the sheriffís jail Lt. Kathryn Bryan with Chief Deputy Rose present also. This was in May 2017.

We asked Chief Deputy Rose if he would get us a copy of that law. He said he would. He never did.

He would even tell the county attorney at a later time he had given us a copy of the law or policy.
But that was not true either.

But looking back how could he have given us a copy of a law that didnít exist?

We had gone to them for help. We even told them that day we were on a mission to try to make sure this didnít happen to another inmate and their family. We did not know the laws or who was responsible for calling but we wanted to try to see this didnít happen again and to find out who was responsible for calling.

After that meeting and being told they could not call Coryís emergency contacts we would contact and visit officials with Vidant hospital.

We knew we had to find out what had gone so terribly wrong. No other family or their loved one should go through this.

From there and moving forward looking for answers and making endless contacts with many other agencies we would find out in time that there was no such law to support what we were told by Bryan and Rose.

We found out what they had been telling us from the very beginning was not the truth.

So we ask ourselves why would or could they so easily be untruthful to us and why?

Again while looking us straight in our faces, and we were so very emotional that day, tell us as much as they wanted to call us they could not. It was the law.

No they were not telling us the truth!

The sheriff made a decision on those two days. He made a conscious decision. He could not have been following any law. There is no law prohibiting him from calling an inmates emergency contacts.

So we continued on.

Then in 2019 as we continued to search for answers the sheriff told us that he did not want to call and he did not have to call!

Because he didnít want to call and he didnít have to call? Yes he said that.
But why or wouldnít he want to call?

You know a young man in your custody has been admitted to ICU with pneumonia and sepsis and you have their emergency contact number and you tell the family you didnít want to call, you didnít have to call.

That is not a reasonable nor is it an acceptable answer.

A decision not supported by the law. Not supported by ethics. Not supported by humanity? Not supported by doing the right thing. Not supported by anything.

Why would he not call the emergency contacts given by Cory for just such emergencies?

Inmates are asked for emergency contacts, not just here in Beaufort County but all over the country, there are medical and ethical reasons for this, and the inmates are told these are the ones that we will contact for you in case of serious illness or injuries.

Why do or would they tell inmates this if they canít call? There is no logic there.

Or
if we are to believe what the sheriff has told us that (he didnít want to call Coryís emergency contacts that he didnít have to call)

Shouldnít they be telling the inmates in Beaufort County when they ask them for their emergency contacts that this means we will call your emergency contacts if the sheriff decides he wants to.
That he doesnít have to call but if he decides he wants to call he will but if he doesnít want to call he will not.

Does that sound right to anyone? Again is that logical?

These are some of reasons we knew something was missing from Coryís story. There was no logic behind what we were being told.

There are so many things that just doesnít add up. It makes no sense at all. Why would we be told something not true from the very beginning with their stories continuing to change.

Something is so very wrong here.

We are thankful for those that will listen as sometimes it just has to be put in words, these things we know to be the truth.
We have and are living this.
If we were not I too may find it hard to believe. But I tell you this is the truth.
We have been living this since May 8,2017.

The sheriff said he would do the same thing all over again.

We seek truth, accountability and justice for Cory and for others so this will not happen to another family and their loved one.

As from the beginning we are thankful for your prayers and support.💙
