Comments

Ray has earned the right to be reelected by fairly and faithfully representing all citizens of this county. Ray understands that while he is elected from his district his vote affects all citizens. As a proven representative of the people maybe it's time Ray ran for higher office.

I have a couple of question as to the circustances of the fire caused by Mr. Nutting. One, was it a burn day? Two, what will his punishment be for this fire escaping onto the property of another?? Americanaboveall

I have no knowledge of Mr. Nutting's background. I did vote in all elections. The question is, the burn message that ALL of us are supposed to call before burning states clearly that if you burn project gets out of hand and burns onto the property of another, YOU will be held liable. I have heard rumors that this is the case with Mr. Nutting's fire. If so, then, what will be his punishment for this event??? Americanaboveall.
