Mr. Smola, I have some questions for you.

When Barry Amos in 2002 told 14 year Town employee Tammie Brock, that she could either resign or she would be fired and a bad report put in her file for reference in getting another job:

1. Did Barry consult you and the Council?
2. Did you approve of this blackmail?
3. Why was she released?
4. Did the council have a public hearing?
5. If the Council met in Executive Session did the Council make their decision public as required by law?
6. If not, did the Mayor sign the required affidavit that no action was taken?
7. Is releasing employees one of Barry’s duties assigned by Council as required by Tyrone Law?
8. Do you know who started the rumor that she was fired because there was money missing?
9. Was there an investigation about the missing funds?

The voters wants to hear from our candidate for Mayor on this? Would Mr. Letourneau and Mayor Lee please answer or any other person on council at that time>

My term in council started in January, 2003 and unfortunately I have no knowledge of the situation. Even if I did, I would never violate Miss Brock's privacy in a public forum.

Do you think it would be a good idea to find out if our Town Manager exceeded his duties and could you tell us if he has the sole authority to remove employees. Thanks again, I will concentrate on those who were on Council.

Mr. Smola, I am so overwhelmed and pleased that you responded to one of my 8 questions. Have you suddenly had a change of heart here at election time? I really did not expect a response, since I wrote you 3 detailed letters this year about hardships created by Ordinance 454 which at the time you were on Council, but choose to ignore all my letters.

Let's see;
1.the guy that is gonna sue you for having the town draft a letter saying they didn't want him back at the ballfields. You did that before there was ever a trial.

2. Then there was Hank Zanek, you publicly ridiculed at town hall about his RV tag.

3. Tracy Young about his house being on less than an acre.

I would say you have never been bashful about trying to humiliate anyone!

After refusing for 10 months to answer my questions, you finally answered one question, albeit an avoidance answer. But that’s okay, it’s a good start after being on Council 5 years. It’s like a baseball player who goes 0-5, then gets on base on an error. It doesn’t help his batting average, but everyone’s pleased. Now if you’re elected Mayor, the citizens want you, to build on that answer. I’m going to make it easy for you, a couple of big fat batting practice pitches right down the middle. Do you know if Barry Amos was ever assigned duties by the Council as required by law? Is one of his assigned duties, the right to fire employees without Council’s approval? Remember, winners never quit and quitters never win!

I have a couple questions. I do not know the whole story of your plight.
1. Could you have upgraded your property to approaved zoning?
Upgrading = more renter's money and more choices in space
usage. (Just my thoughts)
2. Were you paid fair market value for the property?
The buildings on Tyrone Paletto Road were run down and needed major feature improvements. Could you have done this to update and improve upon the look of the town?
I am not trying to make you mad I am just asking you questions and giving you my opinion.
I have riden up and down Tyrone Palmetto Road since I was boy going to see my grandmother. The last time I saw those buildings they looked run down and looked neglected.

Aren't you suppose to be out there treat-o-tricking with the rest of the kids?
Look, dudleydo, Mr. Shelly’s buildings are not run down. It’s well keep better than any other building around downtown that are in the same uses. Go check it.

But how about other building in mid-town Tyrone? How about the Bennett’s Antique building, and the others behind it. It’s pretty bad. How about the Glass company, the metal building at the corner of Castlewood across the school, the vacant 2 story house near the city hall, the metal building next to the new library , the storage building where the guy were shooting cats. Is Barry and Amos are going to bulldoze all these building too? Oh how about your grandma’s house off Palmetto Road the one with a purple hat mailbox. .And the rest that Barry & Smola don’t like.

Now, Why out of a sudden you sounded like an ignorant and can't spell right? Are you playing games DudleyDude?

Your last sentence was:

"Now, Why out of a sudden you sounded like an ignorant and can't spell right? Are you playing games DudleyDude?"

Would you like a "do over?"

1. you have no idea what you are talking about

2.The guys buildings were not torn down! You are a moron talking about things you no nothing about. Mr Shelly's deal was nothing like you are talking about jackass! You are running your mouth without any of the facts. You are just an aimless person, going in an aimless way. I hope after those questions, no one responds to you ever again.

You have to take a prozac or zanex before you hit the boards if you have to, but you don't want to have to change names do you?

Look old fella do not have a coronary. I said I did not know all of his problems. I know he filed against the town. I know he claims it is against an ordinance. I asked questions hoping for an explanation. Morons do not ask questions however jackasses get defensive and act stupid.
Take a nice big breath and those little pills that help you and lets start again. The Ws.
What happen? Where was it? Why was it? I am not asking for the long winded it is everybodies fault but the simple version.
Can someone do that with a little clarity.
Oh, and by the way precious suggar My grandma did not live on Tyrone Palmetto but there was a lake there that allowed swimmimg at one time. I believe it was the Deatons.

I am chilled. Thank you very much for asking.
I seemed to have ticked people off and they freak out. I have asked questions to people around town but everyone has stories and the are pretty wild and grew. It as almost like the game you played as a kid where you sit in circle and whisper something to someone and see how it matches what was really said. There are so many people slamming Amos I am not sure if he is satan or an ordained king because of all the amazing amount of destruction that these folks claim he has done. You ask a question and you are attacked for your looks. Some of the responses to things I have said or asked had made me afraid some one was going to stroke out. Is this normal for the bloggers in Tyrone. Is this a normal reponse? Can you offer some of them a good doc I think they need one.
