The Gilmer Free Press


Unfortunately, this seems to be the prevailing attitude of the Gilmer County Commission and it becomes more obvious every day. Appears they’ve taken a page from Ron Blankenship’s play book.  President Kennedy admitted to meeting about the Recreation Centers future behind closed doors.  Oops!  If it were not for citizen outcry to keep that Board along with the Commissions fear of losing votes it would be gone today just like our schools! It is the feeling of some local citizen leaders they will attempt to give the Rec Center to the College next.  Time will tell all if we can still hear it.  The Gilmer Free Press gives us information we would not otherwise receive and a voice they hear loud and clear in spite of their denial and don’t forget it. Remember Bill Simmons holding up one of its articles he disagreed with in the BOE meeting? You’ve heard Ramsey and other “elected” deny they reads it but when he didn’t like what it said he showed up.  They all do.

Has there ever been a mistake?  Probably, no one is God or perfect but not too many and that’s for sure.  We have all read necessary corrections and polite apologies on the GFP. Only if a prominent name complains will you see that in the counties only printed “news source”. No minutes from any meeting are ever published by its editor though its reporters always voice record them.  It is a DISGRACE to the freedoms established under the Constitution of this United States for anyone to attempt to suppress our rights to free speech and public information!  Anyone doing that has something to hide. That is the only logical conclusion one can come to.

Using public office to influence Tax Payer choice of which business to support is unacceptable but easy to do in a small county where we all know each other. To persecute this site out of a misguided sense of self righteous, self protecting indignation even more so.  Really Commissioners, really EDA?  How many businesses are you going to drive out of our town to keep the money in your own pockets and eliminate competition for limited dollars? Seems the more we give you free reign the more we lose! Take a look around.  Oddly enough you all swear you support broadband and internet technology. Is that only if it supports you?  So it would seem.

Many, too many of us, have heard the owner of this free publication, a successful local businessman that actually serves the public (along with his beautiful family), a contributing tax payer and citizen of the U.S.A., put down, insulted, called a foreigner, a terrorist and other bad names because of the transparency and accessibility to public information provided by the Gilmer Free Press.  Such talk by elected officials on the street to divert attention from their own short comings is an affront to the dignity of public office, it shows ignorance, convinces others we ARE backwoods hillbillies and it is TIME FOR THIS UNPROFESSIONAL NONSENSE TO STOP!

Did it ever occur to one elected official to change their own bad behavior?  Do they think maybe, just maybe they should follow the laws of this state, obey open meeting laws, conduct themselves in a moral and ethical fashion and consider what the tax payers want or need?  NO it doesn’t. They don’t want to take responsibility for their own bad conduct and all they want to do about that is SHUT THE PEOPLE WHO DISAGREE WITH THEM UP. Don’t know about you but my vote just changed for the next several election cycles and it won’t be for more of the same.

Salwa Amin from MTV’s hit show, Buckwild, was booked into the Central Regional Jail in Flatwoods, WV early today February 11th on felony drug charges according to Central West Virginia Secret Seven sources. Apparently, Salwa was in the possession of drugs and had intent to sell those drugs, which is of course a felony in the state of West Virginia, unless of course you know IKE MORRIS or you are in the Church of Ike and live in Crooked County down by the Crooked River, and then you can always walk on the drug charges like Doug Cottrill and Doug Morris son of the Lord of…
