    Ronnie that was very embarassing for you and your family. Cookston, stop hating on Mr. Jordan, do great things and you just might be like him. McAdams, please enroll in somebody's college when you are out of office. I think that will help you understand the importance of an education. A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Oh and take the police chief with you.

    Greenwood will always be a third world town as long as King David is in office.

    As usual, the Posse - in this instance Jordan - are uninformed, unprepared. Waiting 'til the last minute and asking for a resume', discussing how the nomination / application process was conducted proves just how negligent and out of touch this guy is.

    Although Jordan had the opportunity t attend college (decades ago), he didn't bother to finish. I've heard the man speak - apparently he didn't major in English, economics or logic.

    I am appalled at the ugliness that goes on in the city council meetings! Has a resume ever been requested from other police chiefs by the council members?
    Why must every appointment be met with hostility if the appointee is not a person of color? Can't we just all get along without all the fighting? Most of the council members profess to be Christians, but I certainly can't tell by the way they attack each other. May God help you all!

What's this?
