The first thing I saw on that page was coding errors. Wonder how much that cost.

http://www.phelpscounty.org/

Look at the web site for Phelps county.  Where does this info exist for Pulaski.?  I think this is the point.

The prolem is because they have no clue about what it is they are buying. We need to start getting qualified people for these positions. Technology could become a local industry, but not with these guys at the helm.
 
 
 
I am not sure where the dollar amount came from, but I do know it can be done for MUCH less than that.  My site is nothing fancy but does the job, www.repdavidday.com and if you look under the tab for "148th District Directory" it has contact information for almost any government agency you could want in the state/county.  I also have numerous local links (not near as many as Rick has), links for kids, political links, etc...

If the county wants a site that is great, but there is no way it should cost anywhere near $5,000.  I keep mine updated which for me means putting new pics on now and then, press releases, articles, and it takes me less than 30 min. per week.  Again, not fancy but gets the info out for folks that want it.

Just my thoughts on the proposed cost of what I read.

City Government Opinion / Re: Waynesville Cemetery
« on: October 13, 2007, 10:26:38 PM »
My opinion is it is an uninteresting story. LOL.. I agree it's heating up. It is now time for those in power who want to be re-elected to pretend they are actually doing something. These are the times when roads get paved.
 
This article created such a buzz, I thought the Web might be interested in weighing in.  This committee was formed about a year ago by the mayor.  Sounds to me like the April city races are beginning to heat up in Waynesville.

Oh Bill Farnham, yes he reads it daily, he used to write in the old board. I misread what you wrote. You can trust me when I say, "All the politicians read this site." They may pretend not to, but by virtue of their position thay are all paranoid, and more concerned what's written on here than what they put on.

 
“We could get a lot of interesting links on it, links to Fort Leonard Wood, the churches, the schools; it would help sell our county,” Farnham said.

I like Bill, he has done good for our area here out on hwy28. I only have one question. Has he looked at your site. You have the links he thinks this county needs. Dam if it ain't broke don't try to fix it!!!  Rick you talked up Ransdall here and I know why. We voted in a professional politician and got what we voted for. I hope we have learned our lesson on this.

On the radio I thought I heard Bill say he wanted to hire an Economic Development person. Isn't that the Commissioners job? Pretty soon the Commissioners will have a full staff and they won't have to do anything for their pay.

I backed Ransdall because his opponent was Tim Berrier. That I thought was clear. Timmy burnt his bridge with me years ago, I was nice to add to the flames. On election night I pictured a world war II bomber spinning out of control with flames coming out it's ass end. ROFLMAO

Yes Bill Ransdall reads this site, he called me once because I somehow had his ip blocked.
 
Don't worry. They will "find" the $5K.  They can whenever they really want to.  They just can't find it for LE is all.  Rick, does our good friend Billy ever lurk here that you know of?  If not, then how does he think he knows about us "gossipers"?  Frankly, I think we need to recall him and kick him out of office.  Hear that Bill?

The Sheriff’s View #42, Week of Oct. 15 to 19, 2007

Welcome aboard for one more tour throughout Pulaski County with the Deputies of the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department. This past week has been a very frantic week for me. I have been so busy answering telephone calls, returning calls, and meeting with people that I am not sure I know what the Deputies did this past week. But that statement is not exactly accurate because I have been on the computer since 6:00am on Saturday morning writing a news release that covered about five cases we have had recently.

We had a minor bit of excitement Friday night when we got a report that two helicopters had landed in a field just off Rt. O near Dixon. When our deputies got to the scene they found a pair of Missouri National Guard aircraft had landed because of an equipment issue. One helicopter later returned to Jefferson City and the other stayed on the ground. Our Deputies guarded the craft until an MP detail from Ft. Wood could arrive on the scene to take over the guard job. There was no crash, no injury, or no damage in this incident. A simple case of an unexpected visit in the night.

Friday afternoon we had a report of a tractor-trailer eastbound on I-44 that was pulling a stolen trailer unit. The vehicle was reported to us by the Laclede County Sheriff’s Department and was about to enter Pulaski County. Within minutes Capt. Cristoffer stopped the truck at the Buckhorn overpass. We asked the Missouri State Highway Patrol for assistance with the commercial vehicle violations that we found associated with this unit. The final result was two citations issued by the Patrol for violations and the driver was placed out of service. That part did not matter too much because we placed the driver in the Pulaski County jail and had the stolen trailer removed by a local tow company. All in all it was a good catch. I would like to say job well done to Capt. Cristoffer!

Our full time and reserve Detective unit has been busy of late with a total of three death investigations within the past fourteen days. Two of the cases were suicide and one case was undetermined but most likely related to a drug overdose. In addition they assisted the Texas County Sheriff’s Department and the Missouri State Highway Patrol’s Division of Drug and Crime Control with an investigation into the theft of a large amount of copper wire that occurred in Texas County. Our Detectives located a person of interest in this case and conducted an interview for the Texas County Sheriff.

In addition on Oct. 11th our Deputies investigated a case were a five-year-old child was abducted near St. Robert. The child was located unharmed and one suspect was taken into custody. A felony charge of child abduction was later filed on him the Pulaski County PA and he remains in the Pulaski County jail in lieu of posting a $50,000.00 cash only bond.

So I think I can say that we have been busy this past week. Our case number count this morning stands at 7,121, which means that we have gained 165 calls for service/cases since last Sunday. But the bad news is that for all of 2006 we only had 7,212 calls for service. I believe this means that we will set a new record high in 2007 and the only question is how high will that number be?

On Thursday of this week I traveled to scenic Hermann Missouri for the monthly meeting of the Board of Directors of the Lake Area Narcotic Enforcement Group. We had a pretty good meeting. One fact that surfaced at the meeting was that so far for all of 2007, in all of the counties that make up the LANEG group combined, we have only seized a total of 7 meth labs. Everybody is reporting drastic drops in the information about meth labs that we used to receive. And this pretty much follows the statewide totals on meth labs seizures. The bad news however is that everybody is also reporting no shortage of meth in the local market due to massive imports by the drug couriers. Like I said last year, at least we do not have the massive dump of hazardous chemicals throughout our local environment like we used to have. The sad fact is that any controlled substance will always be in demand on the illegal market.

I did miss one bit of news last week or rather I did not have room for the news last week. We recently sent four officers to Alabama for training. We had found a real nice deal on training where we could get free training, including airfare and lodging, so we sent four of our senior officers. The weeklong course helped them develop in the areas of leadership and personal development. In addition each came back with the necessary POST approved course to become a generalist instructor for Missouri POST approved training. The only thing this one cost us was the gas to drive to the airport in St. Louis and the work hours for one week. Now that we have added four instructors to our department we can proceed with a plan we have to increase the training of our officers.

Over the past two years we have pretty much come to the conclusion that with the small number of officers in our department it is impossible to get all the officers together at one time for a training session. So we are going to move to small groups of three or four officers at a time to complete a course. And that means we needed more instructors. My personal opinion is that the officers cannot have too much training. Every subject we can expose them to in training makes them a better asset. In fact I can say for sure that the other departments that hire our officers away from us do definitely appreciate the well-trained officers we supply them with. Who knows someday we might get smart and pay our officers a decent salary and we would get to keep them.

I seem to be over once again on the word count so once again I will ask you all to drive safe and to stay legal. Our jail budget for the year is shot and we do not want your business. But we did have a supply of light bulbs left over and the light will stay on!

Oct. 13,2007
At 9:40pm on Oct. 12, 2007, a resident in the Dixon area near Rt. O reported that two helicopters had just landed in a field near his home. Pulaski County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the scene and located the helicopters. The aircraft were from a Missouri National Guard Unit located near Jefferson City and had landed because of an equipment issue. There was no crash, no injury or damage on the ground reported. One helicopter later returned to Jefferson City and one aircraft remained on the ground. Pulaski County Deputies secured the aircraft until Military Police officers from Ft. Wood arrived on the scene to guard the craft.
 
At 2:43pm on Oct.12, 2007, the Laclede County Sheriff’s Department notified the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department of a tractor-trailer unit with a reported stolen trailer that was eastbound on I-44 at the 143-mile marker in Laclede County. Capt. Tom Cristoffer of the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department located the eastbound truck at 2:55pm and stopped the vehicle at the Mo. 17 and I-44 overpass in Pulaski County. Additional Deputies and one local Trooper from the Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to back up Capt. Cristoffer. Several violations of the commercial vehicle code were observed and a request was made for a Commercial Vehicle Enforcement (CVE) unit from the Missouri State Highway Patrol to assist with the investigation.
 
The investigation into the reported stolen trailer revealed that the Green Bay Wisconsin Police Department had taken a stolen vehicle report on the unit on Oct.2, 2007. The trailer unit was searched by a drug dog with negative results and was then taken to a local tow company for storage. The Patrol’s CVE officers placed the driver of the tractor-trailer unit out of service and two citations for violations of commercial vehicle laws were issued. The driver was taken to the Pulaski County jail on a 24-hour hold while the criminal investigation of the stolen trailer unit continues.
 
On Oct. 11, 2007, Pulaski County Deputies responded to 22710 Hector Dr., St. Robert, Missouri (outside the city limits) for a reported kidnapping of a five-year-old child. The Deputies were able to locate the child who was not harmed and one suspect was taken into custody. A statement of probable cause was sent to the Pulaski County Prosecutor and one count of child abduction was filed on Bruce C. Bagley, age 37, 22693 Hector Drive, St. Robert, Missouri. Bagley’s bond was set at $50,000.00 cash only and he remains in the Pulaski County jail.
 
At 6:35pm on Oct. 9, 2007, the Pulaski County Ambulance District was notified of an unconscious and unresponsive person at 13900 Haystack Lane, Dixon, Missouri. At 6:37pm assistance from the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department was requested. When Deputies arrived on the scene it was determined that the subject was deceased. Detectives from the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department responded to the scene for a detailed investigation.
 
The deceased was later identified as Jason R. Mellroy, age 19, 13900 Haystack Drive, Dixon, Missouri. An autopsy was performed and at this time the probable cause of death is a drug overdose however the results of the toxicology tests will not be known for some time and the investigation in this death continues.
 
On Oct. 5, 2007, at 10:40pm, the Pulaski County 911 Communication Center reported a person had been shot at 22865 Hardy Lane, St. Robert, Missouri. The location was not in the St. Robert City limits. Upon arrival on the scene Deputies from the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department found one person dead from a gunshot wound. Detectives from the Sheriff’s Department were called to the scene to conduct a more detailed investigation. The deceased was identified as Albert J. Eagan, age 25, 22865 Hardy Lane, St. Robert, Missouri.
 
At this time all indications are that Mr. Eagan died as the result of a self inflicted gunshot wound. The investigation continues.
 
On Oct. 2, 2007 at 9:03pm a Pulaski County Deputy on routine patrol, who was accompanied by a reserve Deputy, observed a vehicle going west on I-44 near the Mo. 17 overpass make an unsafe lane change. The Deputy conducted a routine traffic violation stop on the vehicle. The driver of the vehicle was determined to have two active warrants for her arrest. Her Missouri driver’s license was revoked and the insurance coverage on the vehicle was expired. A male subject in the vehicle had an active felony warrant from the Sheriff’s Department at Colorado Springs Colorado.
 
The Deputy observed items in the vehicle consistent with narcotic use and a search of the vehicle resulted in the discovery of a small amount of methamphetamine and heroin. All three subjects in the vehicle were arrested and taken to the Pulaski County jail.

I umm. LOL
 
there is a great difference between nudists and swingers. Nudists believe its just  natural to walk around naked .they arent a group that trades women or has sex in front of each other......at least the true nudists. Now if it was a swinger type nude joint then I could see rasing eyebrows......but not naturalists.

Web site considered for Pulaski County

Published: Friday, October 12, 2007 5:11 PM CDT
 
 
Darrell Todd Maurina Daily Guide

Pulaski County could soon get its own site on the Internet.

Presiding Commissioner Bill Ransdall told county commissioners during their Thursday morning meeting that when U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill was preparing to visit Fort Leonard Wood this week, one of her staff members attempted to locate information on the Internet on Pulaski County including the names of county officeholders, but couldn’t find anything.

 
Some web links that do exist are wrong, Ransdall said, with the Missouri Secretary of State’s web site directing those who search for Pulaski County to a site for Phelps County.

Ransdall said some elected county officials are paying for their own web sites out of their own pocket, but said “it would make our life a whole lot easier” if the county had a unified presence on the Internet.

Commissioner Dennis Thornsberry agreed but questioned the cost.

 
 
“We’ve talked about it before; the question is how will we pay for it,” Thornsberry said.

Commissioner Bill Farnham said web sites such as those maintained by Waynesville and St. Robert are expensive.

“For the last couple of years, we have tried to put the money into the budget to build a web site,” Farnham said. “It would cost us about $5,000, and with the financial condition of the county we did not have the money to do that.”

 
 
Ransdall said it’s costing the county not to have a web site.

“Somebody was searching for Pulaski County and got the gossip site; I don’t think that’s where we want people going to find out about the county,” Ransdall said.

Ransdall said he thought he could find a local business to donate the time and effort to produce a web site for Pulaski County, or possibly have Waynesville Technical Academy students do it as a class project.

 
 
That’s a good idea, Farnham said, but he cautioned that said it could be a problem to get a person to maintain the web site to keep it up to date.

“We could get a lot of interesting links on it, links to Fort Leonard Wood, the churches, the schools; it would help sell our county,” Farnham said.

That quote is in the article too. I believe it was a County Commissioner meeting. I will post the article once Daily Guide puts it online.

Bottom line is, he doesn't know the first thing about the internet, and now he want's to throw tax payers money at it, and that is not the answer to his dilema. His hopes are that it will some how diminish this sites importance, that's where he is wrong. But I assure you this will open the flood gates on him.


I haven't read the Guide but I was at the meeting where he said it ...  I was sitting right next to him and he said "PHELPS COUNTY".  Luge

I have had Pulaski County on the internet for years, they should have been thanking me. I have for years been storing county web pages for free for different departments, even built them for free, and thats how I get thanked?

Ransdall is just pissed he can't control me. Building a site no one sees won't change anything but your budget.

Sneak Peek Sheriff's View / Re: Sneak Peek Sheriff's View
« on: October 07, 2007, 06:41:20 PM »
The Sheriff’s View #41, Week of Oct. 8 to 12, 2007.
Welcome aboard for another column. This is column number 41 for the year of 2007. For those of you who missed column number 40 last week there is a good reason why the column did not make it to print. The death of my mother in law on Sept. 28, 2007,created a lot of turmoil for my family and I chose to be a husband and father for several days instead of writing a column as the Sheriff. In fact Friday Oct. 5th was my one and only day in the office last week so I am fairly sure I do not have all the details of what occurred while I was absent. But the good news is that my return briefing stressed the fact that we had a very quiet week.
So I shall start this week with the calls for service/case number count, which stands at 6,956 early Sunday morning the 7th. Two weeks ago in column number 39 the count stood at 6,465 so we gained 491 calls for service in two weeks. Since we are just shy of the 7,000 mark and we still have most of October and all of November and December to go I once again will predict that we will set a new record high in calls for service. Like I have said many times now the massive growth of Pulaski County is creating problems for the Sheriff’s Department and we desperately need to add more employees to our roster. But then again if you drive around in the county you can see the massive growth with your own eyes.
The dispatch totals for the month of September are now available. We received 4,930 telephone calls, which brings the year’s total to 49,367. The front window had 1,667 visitors and for the year 15,883. We had 23 calls about animals. Since March 2007 that total has hit 308 calls. The dispatch unit found two more warrants at the front window for a total of 25 since April of 2007. Beginning with September I had the Dispatch unit start tracking domestic violence calls. We had 24 domestics in September. I am kicking myself because we should have been tracking these calls all along. Somewhere down the road if we have the figures to back us up we might be able to get some kind of grant for a Domestic violence officer. But even if we do find such a grant we would have to produce enough money from the budget to pay 25-40% of the yearly salary for such an officer.
And that is not going to happen. For the past three years I have asked for additional officers and jail staff in each budget. I received zero new positions. So our odds on getting a new domestic violence officer would be slim.
In fact I now dread even starting the next budget cycle for the Sheriff’s Department. The reason that I dread this is because I have had just enough time to skim the newly released 2007 Missouri State Audit for Pulaski County. Dismal reading would be a positive statement about this report. The very first page of the audit, in the yellow sheet introduction, paints a disturbing financial picture for Pulaski County. Let me quote, “The poor financial condition of the General Revenue fund, which was noted in our prior report, has continued to deteriorate.”
That one sentence pretty much tells me that 2008 will be another year in which I hope we can survive. Why does that one sentence disturb me? Simple, the General Revenue fund is where we get the money to operate the Sheriff’s Department. The General Revenue fund is fully funded by a ½ cent sales tax for Pulaski County. In 2006 the funds received by Pulaski County from this lonely sales tax amounted to $1,763,000.00 something. This lone tax revenue mechanism has been on the books for several years now with no growth or nothing else added. On the other hand prices for goods and services that we need have shot upward. Even worse the DEMAND for our Sheriff’s Department services have also shot upward. The rubber band has been stretched to the point of rupture. The bottom line for me, and this is my own opinion, is that Pulaski County is in deep financial trouble. We MUST add more revenue sources to the County funding. Our failure to do this and do it very soon will have major adverse and very nasty impacts on the operation of the Pulaski County government.
But I shall do what I need to do and that is to fully report the needs of the Department to the Pulaski County Commission for the 2008-budget year. It will be the decision of the Commission as to what happens after I present my budget. The Pulaski County Policy handbook more or less states that the Political direction that the County will take and the ability to get the government job done, rests in the hands of the Commission.
I sort of got off track so let’s skip back to the audit. I have already posted the three major sections of the audit that deal with the Sheriff’s Department on both of our local web based Internet information sites. They are the Pulaski County Web and the Pulaski County Insider. You can read the sections there or you can go to; www.auditor.mo.gov and download the entire audit for free. If you would like a hard copy the auditor’s web site will tell you how to order a copy.
Why am I presenting the information about the audit? Simple, it is an unbiased report on the operation of the Sheriff’s Department. A report card from the teacher if you would like to use that line of thought. In a few spots we did not do very well but for the most part we did just fine and I am happy with the audit results. The areas where we did not do very well have already been addressed and corrective action taken. There are some gray areas where the audit report is critical but if you take the time to read all of these critical remarks and balance that with the responses and reasons for our actions then I think you will say we did fine. Or at least our action was reasonable under the circumstances. In any event the bottom line is that this is YOUR Sheriff’s Department and you should know what we are doing.
As I have said before the position of Sheriff is the main law enforcement officer that you the people elect. You need to have the facts and basic information to help you make that vital choice. I seem to have stood on my soapbox again for quite a few words and once again I seem to be out of space. Please drive careful; remember the annual fall deer herd road rage madness will start soon. Please stay legal, our jail budget is just about expired for the year and we do not need the additional expense. We do not want your business at the jail. But the light is on!

2817
Hate to sound biblical, but these things will not come to pass. It's all double talk.
 
"I cannot wait to hear what the expected income is for the other methods of funding that have been proposed.
1.  What will the porn tax bring in per year?
2.   What will the Internet tax produce?
3.    Change of statute will give $50K for the Circuit Clerks budget.

       Has anyone read or been told what each of these will do? Like I said I would love to hear. By the way a .5 sales tax will produce about $1,763,000.00 per year. Should be more when Lowe's kicks into high gear."



                Well it is now Oct. 6, 2007, and I am still waiting for some new revenue to appear. Has anyone heard anything on any of these proposals?

Thanks.
 
The recommendation of Plan E is to build a new bridge as close to the old one as possible, keeping the old one open during construction.  That is my understanding.

Does that mean they are going to modify the existing bridge, or re-route a new bridge?
 
I just received a call/e-mail that the District MoDot recommendation to the state level folks of MoDot is to go with recommendation E, that would keep the road open during construction.  This is only a recommendation from the local MoDot Dist., but I can tell you it is the recommendation that normally matters.

Thought you might be interested.
