Rhonda Barovsky is very well known in the legal community as being completely unquailified as Child Custody Evaluator, Special Master or Mediator for Family Law. Rhonda does not possess the educational background to make legal decisions for children and their families. She is highly unprofessional, unethical and cannot be trusted to be unbiased. Do not agree to use her services in place of a judge you will never get rid of her and the damage will be far beyond repair.

I have lived in Lauderdale County for many years, but have grown more and concerned about the way that some of the city alderman in Ripley have been doing business. This past week, they have agreed to put Mike Allmand's offer to settle his $6 million lawsuit against the city on Mondays' executive board session. If the city accepts one of his two offers (1. to pay him 80% of the 60 million or 2. to reinstate him as president and CEO of the combined utilities and to pay him all back wages and benefits), then he will drop the suit. Funny, that all of this comes to the council as the Tennessee Supreme Court will rule on the the lawsuit Tuesday. This after the lawyers representing the city have won every decision so far in this case and are confident of a win on Tuesday. Yeah, here's a choice--pay his millions or pay him nothing.

I have some photos of Elk Garden about 1905-1906. My wife's family comes from that part of the country. If there is any place I can send these photos by email please let me know. I don't want their historical significance to be lost. Please contact me at grwriter@hotmail.com & put Elk Garden in the subject line.

Thank you,
Gerald Robertson

I am new to Homestead but have been in Key West 25 years. I am interested in FEC railroad history and memorabilia and this seems like a great place to acquire some new information.

I live here on a 5 acre avocado farm with several hundred chickens. In Key West I was the Chicken Lady and owned the Chicken Store for seven years, until I lost my lease. It seemed to me the chickens were the heart and soul of old Key West, and it seems to me that the railroad is the heart and soul of old Homestead.

Do you have anything you would like to share with me?

It seems no one cares that there is a predator running around Duncan
Not only is he wanted for child support evasion on 2 cases in Duncan but an additional 6 cases for 7 boys with 6 different mothers, and 2 more pending paternity in Calif
He is 41 and married to a 20 year old that is pregnant again His back support totals over $500,000.00 so far and climbing
He is notorious for meeting woman and taking them for everything they have And hiding assets in thier names He has an unbelievable criminal back ground including assault and battery on the mothers
When the parents were notified that thier daughter was married to a monster, they responded by saying they didnt want to say anything to her because they didnt want to lose touch with her
Contempt charges have been filed but he cant be located to be served

The only season thats not particularly wonderful in Rangeley is in Spring, which is fondly known as "Mud Season" for a good burger, try Parkside and Maine, great service, .. prices are fair. The Rangely inn offers decent meals as well although for some reason they're not open for lunches. Lodge Fancy, the Loon Lodge for stay and dinners, the ambiance is great. For breakfast, try the Gingerbread house for the special occasion, the BMC diner downtown is really good, old town feel and everything is good for a hearty breakfast, nothing fancy here, just good eatin'. Bald Mt. is an excellent day hike, approx 1.5 hrs. gets steep at the end but worth it. Kayaking up the river off 16 is fun, drive up and put in and have a 2nd car at the end to haul gear. Moose sightings most everywhere up 16 and 17. IGA grocer has most you'll need. FISH,Dunhams Fish Market has fresh fish of all kinds they sell from the truck in town, really good smoked salmon if you can get to them before its sold out.

I received sad news this morning via the news that Greg Melton, the Sherrif of Carter County, was found dead in his home of a gunshot wound. It seems small town values have completely flown out the window in our small town of Grandin. For a town of less then 300 people, there sure is a lot of unchecked crime. Vandalism, drugs, burglaries, murders, ect. There is no end to it, it seems. I moved here from a large city with lots of crime hoping to be in a place where a person could feel safe. I know there will be some crime wherever I go. I am not blind to that. But in a small enough town that everybody either knows or is related to everybody else, there really is no excuse for this type of behavior. It is time for the citizens of Grandin to stand up and say "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH". I drive through town late at night on my way to work and see young teens roaming the streets unsupervised. Moms and dads, where are you? In a town like Grandin there is nothing for them to be out there for at night.

Our town is a very special place to live. We are a small town with a big heart You can sit on your front porch and enjoy the days with mostly peace and quiet.

We have two convenient stores with gasoline. We have an Italian restaurant on Main Street. We have a Family Dollar and also a Dollar General store is currently built.

The residents are very friendly and will welcome new people into town.

Greenville, in the Lakelands of Western Pennsylvania
is a safe, snug haven - a peaceful little town of under 6,000. Big industry has left which leaves clean air and water, and many bargain priced houses. Three museums ( Canal, RR, Historical ), good schools and Thiel College, exc. Symphony, near 4 state parks, 5 lakes, fine fishing. Good game/deer country. Large Elk herd just outside of town. Eagles nest in Pymatuning where the ducks walk on the fish. No beggars or street people because the police are tough on crime, but helpful to honest citizens. Walk our safe streets day or night. Exc. golf and fine dining at
The Greens. Good horse country - near Amish farms with their experienced horse handlers, carpenters, quilters,
& childcare experts. Your dollars will go much farther here than elsewhere. For info, contact Mim at
cfiler@columbus.rr.com

This county is evil. Bum Hess on the County Commissioner Chair has a conflict of interest that the Attorney General doesn't address. He is in a public office and gets all of the contracts to repair the public schools. If anyone else tries to bid they are ignored. He hires unlicenced contractors and gets by with it, but if anyone else hires his same sub contractors he reports them. He and his brother who is a principal beat people when they are drunk and cheating on their wives. When the sheriff is called in the young man who was beaten was told he better not mess with a couple of drunk Hess brothers and then the young man was thrown in jail. It is disgusting how the sheriff's department is run by scoundrels who do whatever their cohorts tell them to do.

New Milford is a great town to raise a family. One of the few problems is the mayor. She is actually against things like the town library.
Mayor Murphy does not even use the town library and has told others that she does not like it. She actually uses the library in another town.
Every year she does her best to undermine the library services and force the employees to look for new jobs.
She makes it clear that she doesn't care about the people who use the library or the people who work there.
By the way- I do not vote Democrat. I vote Republican.

I was born in Limestone, N.Y. and raised in Sinclairville.
My father, Elmer, ran the pharmacy there.
It was a nice town to grow up in in the 1920's and 1930's.

Well I have been in Milaca sense I was in the fifth grade and well looking back over the years I have to admit that I really love this tiny town.

Now that I am ninteen and currently serving in the United States Navy I can only say that I can't wait to see the world but when I return home I can only say that me and my fiance will agree to this.

That we return to this quiet hometown of Milaca, MN.

I am writing a small article about Perrytown. I recently met Dave Rose, Mayor, and was looking for some interesting facts about the city. I was also interested in who else would be on the "podunk blog" what better place to be.

Hope, NY is a very small community located halfway between Northville and Wells, NY. The Sacandaga River runs thru it. It has beautiful scenery all seasons. The community is friendly although reserved. As a new resident, no one really goes out of the way to welcome a new neighbor, but if approached , are helpful and friendly. Many of the residents have been here most of their lives and live simply. Most services require travel as there are no stores, gas stations or any other facilities in the town. Wildlife is plentiful and weather is usually calmer than the more northern parts of the Adirondacks. I am still adjusting to the life here. Everyday is an adventure.

It is a nice town to raise your children in because the crime rate is low. The down fall though is that there are no job opportunities.
