    Another mindless rant. Your posting is full of your slanted perceptions and biased opinions. We would all be curious as to where you get your 'insider' information. You aren't a news source. Alicia Leonard called you out on your proclivity to shamelessly interject your own words into a 'cut and pasted' news report. You are a rumor monger that takes joy in making malicious claims about people that you don't know personally. As for your accuracy, it's the same as a broken clock.

    Do you live in DeFuniak Springs? If not why are you so concerned about city government there?

    Public records may not lie but Kaydence does. She distorts, she lies, she gives opinions out as facts, she spreads rumors, and contrary to what she would like you to believe, she does not speak for the majority of citizens in DeFuniak Springs.

    Mr. Douglass,

    My dear departed father use to tell me all the time..."never argue with an idiot, they will only drag you down to their level and beat you with experience" and I think in this situation, it's time to take his advice.

    Have a good one sir.

    Lynda Diane, I sincerely hope your father didn't teach you to become the rude, disrespectful person you are today.
    Bottom line, the firing of Mr. Lucas was bad for the city of DeFuniak. It is an embarrassing display that has neighboring communities shaking their heads and wondering why this town can't get it's act together. Not only was this is a waste of taxpayer dollars, the move leaves the city without a permanent city administrator or a finance director. After the city has chewed up and spit out 7 city administrators in five years, who in their right mind would want this job?
    Worse than that, this divides the community along racial lines. The black leaders present at the special meeting voiced their confidence and support of Danny Lucas. Even Mr. Graham did something he rarely does when he broke ranks with the other councilmen and opposed the termination vote. The DFS city council may not care but this was ugly and definitely not a 'good look' for this quaint little southern town. I'm reminded of the protestors at the 1968 DNC who chanted "the whole world is watching." This shouldn't be happening in the 21st century. Are people really stopping Ron Kelley at church and congratulating him on ruining this man's reputation?
    Cue up the banjo music, bob bob.....

    Speaking of rude and disrespectful Mr. Douglass, it has been you that refused to answer any questions asked of you and verbally chastised me, calling me a liar among other things, constantly throughout this thread.

    This is the very first post where you have actually discussed anything remotely related to the thread you created and then used to brow me me because I don't agree with your agenda.

    My daddy taught me to stand up for what I thought was right and not to fall for all the BS rhetoric passed among rumor mongers like those you have associated yourself with and I do.

    As for Mr. Lucas, I suppose the City would have had less crow to eat if they had waited for the lawsuits that would have surely followed Lucas' tenure here since he became very adept, very quickly about ignoring sunshine law and state statute which he demonstrated several times prior to his dismissal.

    Yes, the black leaders did speak very eloquently and voiced their confidence and support of Danny Lucas however, they, like you and even myself are not privy to the day to day operations of the City in regard to other issues Mr. Lucas single handedly created for himself. Honestly, even in this day and age I would never expect the black community to move against one of their own because historically those that do are viewed as "Uncle Toms" even though that may not be the case. It was no shock that Wayne Graham voted as he did and I would have expected nothing less from a man who has historically sat in Council meetings and won't open his mouth, offers no suggestion to help move the City forward and doesn't even seem to understand his own position as an elected official. I actually voted for Graham in 2017 (mostly because the alternative was a fate worse than death) and I thought that given a few months to get his feet wet again that he could prove to be a far better Councilman than what I have witnessed to date.

    Yes, the NAACP was there in full regalia (at the urging of a few whites) who wanted to make this a racial issue where none existed. Again I say to you this was not an issue of the color of Lucas's skin it was an issue with the color of his character which, in my opinion was sorely lacking.

    Whether this looks good on a quaint, little southern town is debatable because small towns are known for drama which is quickly forgotten until the next election cycle, where it starts all over again.

    We are however in agreement that right now the City has much work to do and until I see for myself that they simply aren't doing anything to right the wrongs of the past I will continue to support the Council. The Council also knows I'll call them out in a New York minute if their actions keep us tied to the past. Those days are over....moving forward.

    My agenda is to expose blowhards that bilge propaganda 24/7 like Lynda Diane, Kaydence, Misty, Linda Morse, and the rest of her personalities.

    I've pointed out her racist tendencies and was belittled by her tiny little blood thirsty gang of wannabe important nobodies.
    She even criticizes others for not using their real names, which is hysterical, considering her string of aliases.
    Don't worry, she's only paid attention to by about six people and they are all as impotent to fix anything as she is.
    She's nothing but angry, opinionated and utterly unimportant.

    She will brag to you that she runs this place, and if you cross her you will be banned, but like everything else she's just bloviating nonsense.

    Lol!

    Last time I looked, Kurt owns and operates this forum and he tolerates all the trolls who show up occasionally to spread their BS...you included TM.

    You are also under the very misguided impression that I care one iota about followers. No one here is forced to read anything I post but I will say that with over 2000 reads on this thread you and others hang on my every word. :floor::floor::floor::floor::floor:

    Thanks for your undivided attention.

    emojis, the language of 14 year olds and those of that emotional and intellectual age.

    That type of clumsy, ham handed reverse psychology is also indicative of the undeveloped mind,
    I haven't responded to a single one of your posts in a year since last pointing out your blatant and unchecked racism.

    You may find yourself to be amazing and influential, I don't. I was responding to someone else.

    OH YEAH, I had completely forgotten that you called me a "racist" because I made the comment that a county vehicle stolen from Melanie Nippers' office and reported 3 weeks after the fact was probably in Mexico. Several people told you that your attack was unwarranted. Bcc Vehicle Stolen

    As to your response to anything posted here, they are just more of your unchecked attacks on anyone you disagree with. The fact that you have meticulously taken the time to count who you believe my "followers" are is a tad creepy and stalkerish not to mention you obviously wanted my attention or you wouldn't have posted at all.

    I don't know where you get off saying
    because that's a bold face lie on your part much like the lie you told when you called me a racist. I am a poster here nothing more, nothing less and again, you can skip anything you don't want to read! I don't "run this place" but if I did, you would have been gone a year ago.

    You give me far more credit than I actually give myself saying, "I think I'm amazing and influential". I don't believe I'm either of those things. I am just a citizen and taxpayer of Walton County with some pretty strong opinions about the dirty politics that go on around here.

    This thread is about the firing of the City manager in DFS. Have you got anything you want to add to that or do you just want to obsess over me? I'm betting on the latter!
