    Re: Ranger council-member asked to resign..

    Didn't he also take a glidder plane without permission and crashed it around Ranger a few years ago?

    If they don't watch out down at City Hall, he could wind up Mayor of Ranger.
    (the Mayor's health is in limbo, the mayor pro-tem has pressure from the home front to resign, etc. etc. Then the "Ranger Bully" pushes for the kid to be made Mayor with the reason....."RANGER NEEDS CHANGE".

    This is really serious - people on City Council are intrusted with a huge responsibility.

    No. It was a powered and he was flying it with the permission of its owner and the owner was on the premises.

And the football fans losing the homecoming bonfire can't even be compared to him possibly losing his life.

    And I am now through commenting on this -- wouldn't have even gotten involved with this whole thread until the jokes started flying around about him getting burned. You should be ashamed.
    I do not consider it an accident. He set out to vvindictively destroy something that did not belong to him, without regard to his or the homes around safety. his own childish, vindictive actions could have caused others their homes as well. Maybe if more people called him on his stupid actions and held him responcible then he may have learned something. Instead, people make excuses for him, applaud and reward him when he should be corrected. As a result he continues to act the way he has always acted. Based on his behavior I do not consider it an accident, just the result of his bad choice of actions.

    Good News / Bad News.......

    As many of you have heard, we've had to stop the petition because of how the City Charter reads. That's the bad news.

    Good news is we can start it in December (his 6th month in office), will have 30 days to get the needed signatures (and we almost had all we needed now), turn it in to the Mayor and Council. He then has 5 days to resign or they must set the expensive recall election.

    Hopefully it will be his Christmas present this year and turn into a Very Happy New Year for Ranger.

    I would encourage any of you not afraid to sign the petition to either call me or Mary Botts, we are listed in the Ranger phone book and we'll get you on the list of people to see the 1st of December.

    Or perhaps we could start picketing City Hall on meeting nights. If the numbers were large enough, he might just resign and save us the work and the city the money.

    Definately the support is here to recall the boy.

    I really doubt that picketing is the way to go. He will love the attention & we all know he cares nothing about anyone or anything but himslef & his wants. At what point does daddy spank his tail end?

    Re: Ranger council-member asked to resign..

    I do not know the Boy but what I have heard from my Relatives in Ranger he is not going to resign
    under pressure he will be at the Table and brag about what he owns but yet still lives at Mommies and Daddy's Home .
    I would like to know how he paid for the Plane and Truck that he says he owns ?

    no accident! purposely setting fire to a bonfire is ARSON in any book. arson is a felony. someone mentioned today that there was no statute of limitation on arson. maybe someone could still file a complaint on "the boy." arson is not a prank. it is a felony. maybe he needs to be reminded that he could still be prosecuted if someone decides to file a complaint. isn't the fire chief on the school board? and he's trying to get rid of the fire chief? Me thinks "the boy" is playing with FIRE!!

    Maybe Daddy needshis tail end spanked also. It is a conflict of interest for Jared to run the airport and serve on the city council. After all he is handling city funds from the airport. His Dad is not running the airport. Incidentally, Bob Green was the owner of the glider Jared wrecked. Who else in town would trust the boy with their aircraft?
    There he sits on the Ranger City Council rared back like a king. Spending our tax money like he owns it. He wants money from REDC to rebuild the hangers. How many tax payers would benefit from that? Please resign "BOY".

    The Boy's daddy is suppose to be running the airport but that my friends is a big joke. No one but The Boy runs the airport. Yes, it is a conflict of interest. NO COMMISSIONER IS SUPPOSED TO BE
    HANDLING TAXPAYERS MONEY. Why The Boy just breaks the law every time he turns around and no one ever calls his hand.

    You drove around town for 8 months without a current inspection sticker....and you can't believe the police didn't notice....

    We are all familiar with Miss Early-Up and know her to be a fine citizen. She just wants what is best for Ranger and she has my permission to judge. Are you a follower of the "Fire Boy"? Sure pick bad friends if you are.

    If the real people who care about Ranger came forward and read the truth about things that have gone on in Ranger. Changes would be made and alot of heads would roll. Why judge those that want things better, Ranger is a far cry from a city to want your children to grow up in, I'm here because I have to be. I'm on the outside looking and listening in. This city needs more than pray, or bra burnings. Change is good!

    sorry honey, but not ALL change is good. i am one for change when it is channeled in the right direction. hard to support someone when they don't even know where they've been much less where they're going.

    No, he does not deserve ANY credit for the article. He copied it almost word for word. I have been reading articles for many years about the Ranger Airport. What a joke The Boy is. He thinks we are the dummies and he is a perfect example of a young man.

    Shame on the father then. Obviously this is where he learned this behavior. Perhaps momma needs to get the board out. You know when momma is unhappy, nobody else is happy either!!

    Goofy, get real, I don't park in their parking lot next to their office daily with expired tags. I would have gladly gotten mine done had I noticed. Everyone makes a mistake but she parks right next to their office & their vehicles. You mean to tell me no one mentioned it to her & she goes right away to take care of the problem. Get real GOOFY, how ignorant can they be? Do we need to take them by the hand? Do we need to advise her of what is right & wrong?

    Funny, I have not found any age group that knows him who actually has any respect for him whatsoever. Does it suprise you that he copied it all from others? Sounds just like I have always heard about him. Another good reason for momma to spank his rear end!!! COPYING. Shame Shame

    Earlyup, you need to get real. You go 8 months on an expired inspection sticker and it's a mistake, everyone makes them. Someone else does it and they are ignorant?
    Does someone need to take you by the hand and show you what's right from wrong?
    After about a year, didn't you think to yourself, "hmmmm self....you haven't had your car inspected in a while, perhaps you should check it"?

    Yes, this is true. I know that both she and Father enable anything the BOY does. The BOY can't admit to being manager of the airport because of his criminal past so
    the big lie has to be told that the daddy is the manager. Must mean a lot to them
    to have BOY'S ugly picture in the paper evvery time we get a new paper. The town Bully is a big help to them.

    Time flies, gfy! At times, complications in our lives push thoughts of inspection stickers right outta our minds.

    I think early's comments are the fact that the expired sticker was parked at city hall next to either the chief's car or a patrolman's car every day and either none caught it, or ignored it, or told the owner and they ignored it which left the police to again ignore.
    I know I once drove for a few months on an expired sticker. Don't care how observant or organized you are, some things just get past you. I only noticed because someone pointed it out to me. I was surprised I had not been ticketed or notified by law enforcement. But, to me, they have bigger fish to fry than to follow everyone around and check registration, insurance and inspections. Yes, that is in their job descriptions but which would people prefer....Mr. Officer driving around writing tickets for expired inspections/registrations, or putting "real" criminals (druggies, burglarers, rapists, etc.) behind bars? I check number 2!
    But, I digress and we're again off topic.

    The problem here is earlyup's statement is not true. The Judge has not been able to drive her truck since Oct of 2008 due to a shoulder injury which required surgery. She was unable to use her arm to pull herself up in the truck, so family, friends and co-workers drove her to and from work. I like to deal in facts, and this is a fact. The truck that earlyup talks about has not been parked at city hall since Oct 2008. Are the sticker and tags expired on the truck? I don't know. But I do know that it has not been parked at city hall and ignored by the PD as earlyup stated.

    Yeah, that is a good job for Chief Elton. Lets nominate him to do just that every day. It won't hurt him to go around the city hall parking lot and check a few cars.

    Shame on you possum!!! Then he wouldn't have as much time to drive the new car to the restraunts to take his breaks or eat lunch. At least it isn't getting many miles on it.
    What was it bought for if not to use for patrol which he won't do. From what I understand, he refuses.

    I know I once drove for a few months on an expired sticker. Don't care how observant or organized you are, some things just get past you. I only noticed because someone pointed it out to me. I was surprised I had not been ticketed or notified by law enforcement. But, to me, they have bigger fish to fry than to follow everyone around and check registration, insurance and inspections. Yes, that is in their job descriptions but which would people prefer....Mr. Officer driving around writing tickets for expired inspections/registrations, or putting "real" criminals (druggies, burglarers, rapists, etc.) behind bars? I check number 2!
    But, I digress and we're again off topic.
    I think my comments to earlyup were directed at the fact that he/she couldn't believe the police didn't catch it....and earlyup didn't even catch his/her own expired sticker. Earlyup stated that these folks are ignorant and don't know right from wrong......

    And when you realize your inspection sticker thoughts have slipped your mind, surely you didn't complain about how horrible of a job the police are doing because they didn't catch you....

    You are hopeless. No use trying to explain anything to you. I did bring it to the attention of a couple of city counsel members due to the fact this is being ignored. Don't necessarily say they should have tickets but the fact that they should notice & perhaps call attention to it to the citizens would be more of a courtesy than an absolute ticket. .

    I wish you wouldn't explain anything, at all, ever. That would be perfect.

    No, I got down on my knees & thanked God. Actually, DD or my dad always keep their eyes out for nearly-expired inspection stickers on family vehicles.

    BD76, excuse me I live in Ranger & I am neither a drunk nor a prostitute as my finances surely do not reflect the latter. I am sure there are some of both of these
    in every city, some are just not so widely talked about as Rangers.

    Granny, must be one of those druggies then. If you were a prostitute here, I would think you would have to accept IOU's or food stamps.

    Say lots, now where do you go everytime I log in. I thought you were my good friend. We already know who you are.

    Early, so you say, "we already know who you are", who am I ? As for IOU'S, those are not worth a darn & I don't qualify for food stamps @ all, so unable to accept.

    Come on kmom, one good thing in five years. I wouldn't say the chief had much to brag about. Shame the mayor had to hold his hand to get it done.

    Re: Ranger council-member asked to resign..

    I know Ranger must work with a "tight" budget at City Hall. I just wish that the code enforcer could be active.

    I grew up in a neighboring county. This week in their newspaper there was a reminder that people needed to take pride in their property and clean up trash. All it takes is a letter/or telephone call to complain about unkeep property to city hall in my hometown. Code Enforcer goes out to that address. Takes a picture of property and determines if property's condition is in violation.

    If so, Code Enforcer writes property owner a letter and they have certain amount of days to clean said property. If not, then they are issued a fine and plus a $100 per day fine until property cleaned up.

    Ranger does have lots of elderly who are not able to mow/clean....but, if the rest of the property owners would be "good citizens" and keep their yards, etc. clean of trash. The town would have so much more pride.

    Saturday morning in Eastland, there were 4 men with lawn mowers and 3 men with weed eaters that were mowing and cleaning along the side of highway from downtown square out to Walmart area. (they were not city employees but the city had contracted this cleanup crew). Wish Ranger had the money to contract some mowing, etc.

    If some club group in Ranger could keep the grass mowed and flowers in the planters down by the Railroad on Main Street. That is the entrance to the downtown area .....what a positive difference that would make.

    That won't happen because everyone in Ranger is too hung over on Saturday morning to get up and do something productive. So they just keep on keepin on and the town still looks like s#!t

    NNNAAAHHHH- I have done community service since I was about 14 for various programs & will continue to put into the community when a need arises. Perhaps when school starts back we could do ours together. I hear the Lighthouse Hospice is needing volunteers. The Majestic is always needing volunteers, the hospital, the nursing homes, the Headstart programs, there is plenty to go around.

    Did some checking about community service in Ranger looks like there is a back log of unpaid tickets at the Judges office so why can't they work them out on week-ends ?

    From what I understand, the judge said they must have supervision in doing this & a few years ago she stated that it was always the same people who were always on probation. My question then & still is, why not throw them in jail till they come up with the money rather than continually seeing the same ones over & over.

    T- the city has enough law breakers to send a message. Start locking some up. I would imagine the problem would take care of itself. They would learn they will serve time rather than doing the same crime over & over.

    I thought Ranger had financial problems. Why would you want them to spend money on jail time for people with outstanding tickets?

    Re: Ranger council-member asked to resign..

    I don't know much about the happenings at city hall in Ranger nor do I really care to. All I know is that there have been several robberies and attempted robberies in my neighborhood in Ranger. The other night there was an attempt at one of my neighbors houses and she called dispatch and they told her that there was not a police officer on duty that they would have to call one and get him out of bed. It then took him almost 30 min. to get to her house and then he didn't even check it out he just passed by once without even hitting his brakes or shining his light around. I personally have NO faith in the Ranger PD. I am really kinda scared to be living here. We are desperately fixing up our house so we can move! Why in heck was there not an officer on duty?

    Mommy1- from my understanding there are only two officers & the chief. One who used to be here that was trying to qualify for disability the last time we spoke & the other is Able that sleeps on the job & always has. The chief refuses to do patrol. He sits at his desk as things disappear from evidence. Go figure.

    Earlyup, you really know this to be fact & if so how is that?, why don't you share with all of us?, or are you just talking out the _____? I don't know Able really well, however I do know he has been an officer here for sometime now & I have always heard good things about him here as well as in Gorman as an officer, so why do you feel the need to get on here & cut people down so much? I was sad when you were cutting down the city judge the other day on here, I do not understand people like you appear to be.

    Early, I can not imagine why anyone, you or the city council member, would not like our Police Chief or the Fire Chief. We are lucky to have them. I can't think of anyone who would want either job.

It then took him almost 30 min. to get to her house and then he didn't even check it out he just passed by once without even hitting his brakes or shining his light around. I personally have NO faith in the Ranger PD. I am really kinda scared to be living here. We are desperately fixing up our house so we can move! Why in heck was there not an officer on duty?
    When the dispatch said there were no Officer on duty why did she not call the Sheriff
    and have a Deputy come to Ranger .
    Something is not right with this Post and no I am not calling you a liar the dispatcher
    should have handled it in a different way.
    Besides you might as well forget Baby Boy what could he do run off the rest the Police Dept ?

    As for the police chief, I know things that would curl your hair on this guy. Just biding his time to go back to driving a truck. He hates Ranger & that is from his own mouth a number of years ago. He is obviously not what he portrays.

    Like getting on Abilene Tv and complaining the school didn't call him when there was the incident with the choking. The school should have called but
    he should of gone to the Superintendent and spoken with him rather than making things worst for the image of Ranger by going on Abilene TV. I have never meet him but the little stunt on Abilene TV, he came over like a backwoods Bozo that had his feelings hurt for being left out of the loop. Not the brightest approach for himself or Ranger.

    since you seem to know so much and be upset with everyone ,what department did you get fired from? i dont think he portrays himself in anyway he seems pretty up front and to the point to me.

    Baby Boy may fire all the cops and the dispatchers, too. I'd give him a call and put his A-- to work. He can talk big anyway. What a dumb dispatcher to tell a caller that.

    I would imagine the dispatchers don't know what to tell people. Just like people in this area trying to defend others. Blowing in the wind.
    Possum- for your info- none. Any other questions?

    Re: Ranger council-member asked to resign..

    I don't blame the dispatcher although she could have called a Sheriff Deputy. I'm not a liar and I really would not have posted on here but I just thought that the citizens of Ranger should know that if anyone ever breaks into your house don't expect the Cops to come to your Rescue. I would advise them to get a gun and put up some private property signs! I'm really starting to think that the Ranger PD is too afraid of the BAD people to protect the Good, Hard working people who make their money the right way. Really, I can drive down any road in Ranger and tell which houses are the dope houses. Just watch the traffic in and out. If they cracked down on the dope dealers then that would probably cut down on the break ins (all the druggies have to get there money to buy the drugs from somewhere.) Last Post, Just wanted to let the people of Ranger know that you can not count on the PD for anything!

    Mommy1- I am truely sorry you had to find out like that. Most of us have never counted on them for protection of any kind. That also includes some from the SO. It is a shame when you call dispatch & cringe to see what bozo will show up & pretend you are ignorant & don't know what is happening around you.

    First off I did not call you a liar I don't call anyone a liar until I get the facts first and yes I blame the dispatcher he-she should have called for back-up for the City of Ranger and if the Town was left without a law and he-she was home in bed where was the Chief ?
    If you drive by Drug Houses and know they are Drug Houses you are at fault as much as the Drug Pusher if the laws in Ranger want help call the Drug Task Force if you feel there is a dirty Cop in your town go to the Mayor or the D.A.
    Someone on the Eastland Spin ask me if I was looking for a job in Ranger .
    No is the answer I have been with the same Office for 16 years and besides
    Eastland Co. could not pay me what I make .
    I would love to retire around Ranger because I work and live in a large town .

    Lawngirl, guess I don't quite understand your thinking here, just because a person drives by a house that may look suspicous, doesn't necessarily mean it is what it
    seems, what happened to "things have to be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt? Maybe some folks are just bad house keepers or bad lawn keepers, who knows, who cares as long as their not bothering me or I witness them harming someone until then I will try to mind my own business, guess its hard for me to get a grip on folks whom do not live around here in our small towns however they seem to have all the scoop about us or @ least think they do, just bothers me. I feel bad for this person whom needed help, I do indeed wish this would have been handled in a better way, however I was not there so will shut up & hope if in the future this person or anyone needs help, help will be there quickly.

    For all of our old eyes I will post larger. LOL Lawgirl, that is an understatement when you say we have a mess here. Just keep hoping to see the big guns come back & try to clean some up again. Heard it worked pretty well the last time they were here. All that was before my time so I can't speak first hand on this. Unfortunately, it may not leave much of the area when & if they do come back.

    I was here and I do remember when it all went down. Some of the people I would not have believed had I not seen with my own eyes and yes some were in law enforcement. But you Eary did not work for the city of Ranger then. And the big bust was not only Ranger but the entire county.

    Is this the post to which you refer?
    While in Ranger recently for a routine inspection, I decided to implement a fact finding mission. Drove every street in town, and found it to be orderly, clean, well trimmed, and attractive, much more so than Cisco or Eastland. The streets are in better shape than Cisco's. Ranger does have something to be proud of, while the rest of the county spends their time surmising. Eastland is still pouting over Ranger getting the new Yellow Bird Truck Wash.

    Why beat around the bush, If someone gets their feet stepped on maybe they shouldn't have their feet out where they can be stepped on.

    That big bust was no shocker to anyone in Ranger. We all knew who they were and so did the law know. Couldn't go to anyone as everyone was in on the dealing.It just seemed they would go on forever and no one would ever bust them. They had it made for a while.

    If you drove down every street, you musta been lost cause you cannot read the dang rusted street signs. I guess that I will have to go over and ride around to see for myself. I did not know that you could clean scum that easily or quickly and it has not been that long since I was in Ranger. HOWEVER, before everyone jumps down my throat, I do know some good folks that live in Ranger. I do feel sorry for them though, cause they are trapped. Can't sell their houses for what it would cost to buy in a decent town.
