Most people who work for the county knew that something like this would happen. I mean, after all, after the monies were spent on security for the judges parking, and all the money spent for the sniper trial, makes it a little hard to swallow. We have went 5 years without a raise, but yet, the county has all this money to blow. My only hope is that one day, the commissioners and a few select judges, have to learn to live with less money. When it comes to eating or paying your electric bill, what does one do? Of course you try to pay your bills, and do without everything else. Kudos to all those in power, hope one day you also have to suffer. And to all those who come after us when the employees with the knowledge leave, good luck, cause you are certainly kneed it.

i agree, seems like a great amount of money was spent to get results of this act,and still in my opinion,justice was not served.two families are left in the dark,with no closure.but then again, judge bloom dont have to walk very far to get to his courtroom. heres an idea,hire a shuttle to get them from the parking building to the courtroom. makes about as much sense.and another thing,maybe the marshall that was told to leave it alone 9 years ago,should run for public office,sherriff maybe?this could have been taken care of years ago, just my opinion.

The Legislature voted to give each of the commissioners a $10,000 pay raise - which will now be $30,000 per year. Plus, as you know, these commissioners are allowed to work in their regular high paying jobs. The working class doesn't stand a chance. We are reamed..........
