Jake was paid $500.00 a week for what the samething every year last year the mayor told him we want some new bands next year that didn't happen he also told him he wanted things in the park for our youth have you seen any of that? nope what you did see was when was asked to do something he always had something better to do. He was not fired, his hours were cut back but his was not the only. Before July 4th he went and cleaned his office out then he told Mr. Siwinski that he had resigned just read the paper because that paper is the sh!t. When Jake first took this job he did a very good job and then went down hill from there over the years. As for me I hope that they get the right people in there and bring stuff to this town for the youth because that is further of this town.

Don't believe Cupps were all the Problem & a little Gospel Music is good for the sole. A little Rock & Roll is good too, so split them up & let everybody be Happy & let the music & Good Times Roll...

Lets get one thing straight!,,, Jake's job was NOT terminated...... He was cut down to 20 hours a week meaning part time..... So Jake went on sick leave and never told anyone so after his time was up, that's when Jake was let go..... and another thing, the committee is made up of ALL volunteers!!!!! So if you have anything you want planned I'd say lets all meet at their meetings and tell them what we want!,,, I think they meet every 3rd Tuesday of every month.....

One thing snake lady is right about. Jellico sucks. Move as soon as you can, and as far away from some of those people as possible. I'm trying my best too and just can't afford it yet.

You are definitely showing intelligence when you talk about leaving here. This town's people have absolutely nothing to offer and no desire to make things better.

I read the paper that Mr. Bennet was given and he was terminated not the position. If anyone has sense they would have attended the council meetings, and they would know the truth. There were a few people that wanted Mr. Bennets job ( not saying any names) and they are good friends with the mayor and his wife. So Mr. Bennet was fired and several women assumed the postion so to say. Personally the only way you can get anything done around here is to be in the mayor's click. The mayor was a great mayor at first and done very well, but as he progressed he made bad decsions and some mistakes as every mayor we have had and will have has done. They cannot please everyone in this town so there will be people mad all the time. I dont approve of what he has done and he fired some people that didnt need to be fired, it was childish. I hope and pray that the mayor will try to the right things and that he will make some good decisions for the town and its people.
