Thats a compliment coming from you. I seen ya in person.. LOL

OK, God could have made Rick and Taz  much better looking, but none the less he made them. I really am much more light hearted in person than it may appear on this board. Not really the type to mince words or hold back my thoughts and feelings though. I want D.N.s kids to have a meaningful life and be happy. Rick if you watch the "Hovind" video's he thinks people, like the animals were much bigger in the pre-flood world. You could be directly related to Adam.  P.S. your still ugly.

I could see me getting off a boat, and raiding a northern European village.. Sounds like fun to me..

I would add, more like a Norse Viking (IMO).

Thank you I think?? 

Mark, I don't think Rick cares if you find him attractive or not, as a matter of fact,he probably prefers you ARE'NT attracted to him.
But even in jest, remember that words from a Christian's mouth should be upbuilding.

Rick probably doesn't care about my opinion either, but just for the record,in case there are any pretty single ladies out there who haven't met him, he isn't ugly at all.  He's sort of Norweigen looking.

Well that proves he has a sense of humor.
I'm sorry to say Rick or Taz are not the missing links that prove we "evolved" from monkeys. Although they are not much different from what is currently being taught to our children as evidence. The "piltdown man" was believed to be THE missing link for 40 years ( until the guy that filed down an apes jaw and meshed to a human skull admitted it was a hoax). Lucy was found by a guy who was given grant money specifically to find the missing link. He found her two weeks before his grant expired. A few bones, and a couple 1 inch pieces of skull. The artist rendering had human feet, although no foot bones were found. The evolution myth is being perpetuated by greed and the almighty dollar. No missing links have ever been found for any know biological entity. This alone is definitive proof of creation. God created Rick and Taz.

The knuckle draging is what draws women to me, thank you for pointing that out..
Are you still looking for the missing link? Have you met Rick?

This is rumor, but I heard he didn't get a ticket. Rumor also has it she was wearing dark clothes, and was in the road way.
So what happens to the guy that hit her? I've always wondered about them things.

« on: February 07, 2008, 04:21:34 PM »
Yes, but that was 46 pounds ago.

It's basically just good homemade style food.  Not spectacular, but good, like many of the places around here.  Rick, did you really eat all that???

Thanks for the compliment. I am not running, and I am also satisfied with the status quo in the eastern district, for the most part.
I personally don't know David Dickey. OK folks if he has been around here and done all Rick says some of you know him. Whats the word. Hope he gets on this board. It would be good to have someone like JB and Gary that will talk to the folks good or bad. Hell it would be good if he has a interest in our county's law problems and willing to deal with it!

PS: Rick I still think you would be a dam good commisioner but I like ours here in the eastern district.

I don't know many people or politics in the Western District, but I am friends with one guy who does, so I called him. His name is Larry Southard, and Larry was considering running but has decided against it. Larry and I served on the Fair board together, and I know if Larry tells me things are so, I can trust that fact.  He said he is going to put his support behind David Dickey.. I asked him about whether he thinks David is pro law enforcement (To include letting the voters decide on this matter), and he said he thinks he is. He told me when he sees David he will ask him to contact me. He tells me that David is a former teacher at Laquey, and has been a Superintendent in other schools. David is currently working helping Crocker Schools with their administration issues.

It's all Eastern District, the problem is in the Western District. I don't own any property, my banker does, I just pay him to let me use it, and he's probably getting tired of that too. LOL
Besides you have to live on the property. Thanks for thinking I am rich though. If you are a GS 8 or up you make me look poor.. If my business at the shoe store doesn't double soon I may be gone... Looking for a $50,000.00 a year job, any offers? LOL

Rick with all the property you own, none is in the eastern district. Go figure:)

Rick, is Buckhorn in the Western District?

Health News / Flu on Fort Wood
« on: February 06, 2008, 03:46:14 AM »
The Fort Leonard Wood community is seeing an unusually high number of Influenza-like illness.  We would strongly encourage all areas on post to make sure that their folks have had the Influenza vaccination or Flu mist. The flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses.
The flu spreads in respiratory droplets caused by coughing and sneezing.
It usually spreads from person to person, though occasionally a person may become infected by touching something with virus on it and then touching their mouth or nose.  It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. Since there are no known cures for the flu, prevention must be the goal.  The most effective way to prevent flu is to get the flu shot. Other prevention measures include:
1. Wash your hands using soap and warm water.  Use hand sanitizer if a sink is not available.
2. Don't Cover Your Sneezes and Coughs with Your Hands.
3. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing.
4. If a tissue isn't available cough or sneeze away from other people and into your elbow.
5. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
Contributing factors include but are not limited to the following:
  Close quarters in the barracks
  Lack of adequate sanitation in the barracks
  No chance for Soldiers in training to complete personal hygiene tasks such as showering due to lack of shower time.
  Pushing soldiers that aren't feeling well to continue to maximize their exercise.
 Enforcement of:
          Guidelines as posted above
          provide masks to those that are coughing
The environmental section will be contacting POCs to do "spot checks" in the barracks to ensure that we are maximizing our support of our Soldiers in training.
More information can be found at the following websites:
POC:  COL Mimms Mabee, Chief,Preventive Medicine
Emergency Operations Center
Fort Leonard Wood, Mo 65473
573 563-7135

Well if he is not willing to put Law Enforcement on the ballot, I am prepared to start relentless bashing. LOL

The Sheriff’s View #6, Week of Feb. 4 to 8, 2008

Welcome aboard once again. As I write this column on Saturday afternoon on the second day of February I see a landscape that is not covered with the eight inches of snow we had been told to expect. And that is a very good thing to see for many reasons. But the number one reason for us is because we do not have the four wheel drive capability that we need to operate in such an environment. So we as a department have dodged another bullet.

It was an unusual week for us during the past seven days. We had a change of venue in a murder case from way outside our area that required two full days to complete a pre-trial motion in our circuit court. And that required more bailiff action on our part to keep third floor in operation. Plus we had to assemble a special transport team to move the prisoner for two trips so we used up a lot of man-hours this week on court duty.

Then there was the “shots fired” call on Red Oak Road in the Buckhorn area. I am not sure what the responding Deputies expected on this call but they ended up with a vehicle stop that led to three in custody with one rifle located. And one slightly out of season, recently deceased deer due to gunshot wounds, in the back of the truck. So we called in our friends from the Enforcement Division of the Missouri Conservation Commission and let them handle this catch.

Then on Friday night we had some unexpected action from the Con-Link Inmate Transportation Company. It seems they were delivering an inmate to us from out of state when their onboard GPS unit told them to turn down Bobwhite and Bobcat road in the Crocker area in order to reach the Pulaski County Jail. The details are a bit fuzzy on this incident but it seems that when they hit the end of the gravel road something went bang with their vehicle. So we ended up arranging for their unit to be towed to a garage. And we transported eight inmates plus two guards to our jail. The final count is that we will have seven extra inmates to feed until the Con-Link van can be repaired. I guess the good news here is that it was not an aircraft transport.

Our jail list had climbed to some 76 inmates this past week and was slowly starting to fall when the Con-Link people dropped in to visit. We had several sent to the Missouri Department of Corrections this past week. And with luck several more probation and parole cases will complete within the next few days and open up some more space for us. The daily ebb and flow of inmates from the jail is sometimes hard to follow as bonds are completed, court action completed, 24-hour holds expire and inmates are taken back to DOC that had been brought here on writs for court.

The case number/ calls for service count stands at 812 on 2-2-08. What can I say on this one other than we are off and running for another record year. I would love to say the so-called economic recession that may be in our near future would slow down our calls. But that will not happen. In fact it will increase our calls because more people will feel the need to take some other person’s money or property. So theft, robbery, burglary, and bad check numbers will climb. We will be busy with even more calls for service.

The recession will also impact our ability to serve civil process papers. The Commissioners did not authorize the funding for our proposed second process server position to be paid from the civil fee fund for 2008. And that is unfortunate because a recession will also generate a lot more civil papers to be served as people default on loans, home foreclosures occur, divorces are filed, wage garnishment papers are filed and just a ton of extra papers to serve. We will be busy and we will be behind on the paper service.

The past week has been quite busy for me. I did two days of bailiff duty, entered the last of the racial profile reports into our computer program to be tabulated, and surfed the Internet for some police related grants. I may have found a grant we can use but it is way to early to give you any details on the grant at this time.

We have also been vehicle shopping. I have a few dollars saved in the civil fee fund and I think we may have found a cheap used vehicle for sale that we can use. I will pass on those details whenever we finalize the sale.

So we have been a busy bunch of beavers. We shall continue to work and try to move the department forward. In the meantime as I close out the column today I would ask all of you to drive very careful and to stay legal. We can find room for you in the jail if necessary but we really could do without your business this week. The lights are ON!

I think JB should run, surely he can spare a couple hours a week ........

Yes you do have to live there, and neither Gary or I live there.
Do you have to live in the area ie western district?
Gary or Rick both would work!

I too used to say make the welfare recipients take drug tests, but recently I decided that the kids will be the ones who suffer, not the parents. So now that idea gives me mixed emotions, and I was probably the first to recommend it on this site.

News Release
Pursuit and Drug Arrest
Pulaski County Sheriff J. B. King
Jan. 28, 2008
At approximately 35 minutes after midnight on Jan. 27, 2008, a Pulaski County deputy on routine patrol noticed a vehicle traveling east on I-44 from the 145mm that had improper taillights. When the deputy got behind the vehicle he saw that the car was crossing over the centerline and driving off the right edge line. As the vehicle reached the Buckhorn overpass and exited onto the ramp the deputy turned on his overhead emergency light to stop the vehicle. The vehicle failed to stop.
The vehicle began to run stop signs, make turns without signals, and continued to refuse to stop. The chase continued onto the outer road, Richland road and finally onto Roscoe Road. The vehicle stopped in the driveway of 25580 Roscoe Road. The driver exited the vehicle and began to run away from the car. Following a short foot pursuit the Deputy was able to catch the driver and attempt to arrest him. A struggle started that was complicated by the actions of a female passenger from the vehicle who attempted to interfere with the arrest. The deputy was able to complete the arrest of the driver after the use of a chemical spray. Responding backup officers took the female passenger into custody.
During the incident the deputy had watched both people in the car throw items into the grass or under another vehicle in the driveway. These discarded items proved to be small plastic bags containing methamphetamine, marijuana, and morphine sulfate pills. In addition other drug paraphernalia devices were located. Additional drugs were found during a search of the vehicle.
A statement of probable cause was sent to the Pulaski County Prosecutor requesting charges from this incident. One count of possession of a controlled substance was filed on each of the people in the vehicle. Warrants were issued for both subjects.
The persons charged in this incident were; Tony J. Trotter, age 48, of 25580 Roscoe Lane, Waynesville, Mo. and Cynthia R. Kelley, age 32, of 25580 Roscoe Lane, Waynesville, Mo. Judge Colin Long sent an appearance bond on the charge of drug possession for both subjects at $50,000.00 cash. Both are currently held in the Pulaski County Jail.

The Sheriff’s View #5, Week of Jan. 28 to Feb. 1, 2008

Welcome aboard for another trip around Pulaski County with the members of the Pulaski County Sheriff’s department. We had a busy week, a very busy week. Most of the time this past week I was swamped and I hope I am up on the department news.

The Commissioners have adopted the 2008 Pulaski County budget. It will not become final until it is filed and sent to Jefferson City by the 31st. I have had the time to look it over and all I can say is that this will be a very lean year of the department. We shall do our best to “make do” as I wrote about last week but there are going to be a lot of mad Pulaski County citizens who do not understand that “make do” applies to the call at their home.

Sheriff Carl Watson of Texas County released to the media a few facts about his department operations in 2007. Texas County Deputies responded to 2,065 calls and served 2,955 papers. They made 117 felony arrests in 2007. And they had 40 inmates on their jail list the day he issued the media release.

Texas County was once referred to as the poorest county in Missouri but they currently have a brand new Justice Center with a 72-bed jail under construction. And the deputy rumor mill tells me that Carl just ordered a fleet of brand new Yukon SUV’s for the deputies. I will see Carl soon and I am not sure I even want to check this rumor out because if he did order Yukon’s in same year that I got zero car money for the fourth year in a row, I may cry. I do know that we cannot refer to Texas County as the poorest county in the state anymore. I think Pulaski is now ahead of them on the list. It is simply amazing what a law enforcement sales tax will do for a county.

The case number/calls for service count stands at 652 for the month as of noon on Saturday the 26th. It will be interesting to see where we stop for January. I do expect a busy year.

This past week marked the end of a 22-year-old Pulaski County murder case. John David Brown appeared in Pulaski County Circuit Court and admitted that he shot his friend Mary Nobles in the back of the head and killed her on August 25, 1985 in Pulaski County. We were never able to determine a reason for his action. But his voluntary plea in court did help settle one issue. If you were around Phelps and Pulaski Counties when his first trial took place in 1989 you may recall that his defense attorneys at that time tried to allege that an officer shot and killed the church caretaker near Doolittle and then tried to pin the blame on Brown. Their premise was that Brown was framed. There was a certain spin in the air that Brown was just a good old boy whom the cops done wrong. I know that a lot of the officers involved in the 1989 case were extremely angry with the defense team.

Well boys you can relax. Brown himself has set the record straight. Brown freely admitted in court that he shot a long time friend in the back of the head and killed her. Brown’s voice was strong and solid when he made the admission. Nobody in the courtroom had any doubts about this issue. His confession in open court with regard to this case should settle any last doubts about his 1989 conviction in Phelps County. I am sure any members of the 1989 Phelps County jury that read these words will enjoy this column.

I would once again like to issue a public thanks to all of the people who helped the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department make this case. As the lead officer in this case I had to contact a lot of people for assistance. Once I explained the type of case we were working no one turned us down for anything we needed. I would like to issue a special thanks to Danny Cordry of Buckhorn and Terry Pettyjohn of Plato for the donation of their heavy earth moving equipment for two full and payment free days of effort. Another special thank you goes to the university students who came down here from Columbia, Missouri, and searched in the smelly pond mud for the tiny skull fragments. I know it was a chance for them to take part in a real forensic field trip but from their reaction as they began to find bones I think it became a very special occasion for them.

My thanks to the men who came down with the students, Dr. Danny Wescott from the University of Missouri with his five anthropology students. And the same to Columbia College Faculty member Mike Himmel and the fourteen forensic science majors he brought along. . My thanks to the US Forrest Service and to their Enforcement officers who assisted us. And once again a thank you to Chief Doug Yurecko and the Waynesville Rural Fire department for the firefighters and equipment they sent us for the dig.

And last but not least my thanks to the members of my reserve Detective unit who worked long hours on this case for free. I would love to include their names but they have already told me not to do that. Our department did a great job working this case and I am quite proud of our efforts. This closes out a very intense and interesting chapter in the history of the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department.

I may have been carried away just a bit with the Brown case for I seem to be over the suggested word limit already. So I shall close this column with my usual request for all of you to drive safe and to stay legal. The jail is open and the lights are on!

That reminds me that my sister is coming in from Tucson this weekend, and I asked her to bring me some Green Corn Tamales, and two Greasy Tonys Roast Beef Subs with her. When I fly into Tucson, I stop on my way to her house and buy a sub from them. Some things you just love..

We love Stefanos.  I actually had to pick up a gyro and take it to Texas for my Dad because he said they're the best he's had since we lived in Chicago.

News Release
Murder Case Plea
Pulaski County Sheriff J. B. King
Jan. 23, 2008
At approximately 10:00am on Jan. 23, 2008, John David Brown entered a plea of guilty in Pulaski County Circuit Court to one count of murder in the first degree. Brown appeared in front of Pulaski County Circuit Judge T. L. Storie for the plea. The murder charge stemmed from a shooting death that occurred in August 1985 in Pulaski County. The shooting victim, Mary Nobles, had been listed as a missing person from August of 1985 until May of 2005. In May of 2005, Sheriff Mike Rackley of Dallas County and Sheriff J. B. King of Pulaski County reopened an investigation into the circumstances of her disappearance. Detective Lori Robinson of the Lebanon City Police Department assisted them in this investigation.
The investigation led the officers to a secluded pond in Pulaski County, which was drained and searched on May 22-23, 2006. At that time sufficient remains of Mary Nobles were located to provide a positive identification. John Brown was then charged with one count of murder in the first degree. Judge Storie sentenced Brown to a life term in the Missouri Department of Corrections. At the conclusion of the court hearing the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department transported John brown to the Jefferson City Correctional Center.
