Some of the Everett area and clearville area are not receiving the shoppers guide now for over for weeks. We have made multiple calls to the Bedford Gazette asking why and we are always told they will leave the carrier a note in their box. The next week I was told to call the carrier but I do not feel that’s my job to call their employee and do their job. The next week we were told the carriers mailbox was full of complaints and we were guaranteed we would receive a paper this week. So I just checked with multiple people and no one has gotten one. So here we go again we will all be calling the office again. Wonder what lies we will be told this week. I even sent the gazette a message on Facebook asking why and I received no reply. If they are not going to give the shoppers guide part to the whole Bedford county then they need to make their advertisers aware that they are paying the same rate and not getting their advertisements to over half of Bedford county. We just need an answer it of the gazette why this is happening and if the carrier is no delivering them then she needs fired. Please see what you cab find out for us please. I don’t want me name published please. I am a very private person but my family depends on the flyers and coupons in that paper weekly and have not had them for over for weeks.

I am sending this in concern of my grandchildren going to this school.

I just read this post made by a Tussey Moutain High School Student. If this is true, someone needs to take action. Things like this just cant be left go. That is how tragic things happen and then everyone is in shock and just cant understand how it happened. Lets not let this kind of thing happen in our school !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To whom it may concern, as you know we are a very small school district here at Tussey Mountain. Word gets around rather quickly. Whether it would be whats for lunch, or what happened the class period before. I bring to your attention something that has been not only on my mind, but as well as some other students. We have a certain individual who threatened us saying ‘I’m going to kill everyone in this school, and myself’. Some of you might know that this person was not punished in any way, shape, or form for saying this statement. This individual was not punished in any way because he has a disorder we know as Autism. Why not, you might ask? I myself have been wondering the same thing. Despite numerous attempts before, by myself and others to see that some sort of action was taken up, no teacher, principal, or staff member wants to do a thing about it. So I have taken it upon myself to show you all how much the school district cares about these threats that are made. You might recall and event that occurred on December 14th, 2012, the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. 26 dead. Families left to mourn the deaths of their little children. The shooter was diagnosed with Aspergers. Closely linked to Autism. I’m just saying we might want to take action on this. Things like this cannot be left untouched. I’m sure it has made some students a little uneasy knowing threats like this were made. Our school simply does not worry about these matters I suppose. After the events that occurred in Newtown, something should be done. Please note that if you feel the need to screenshot, copy and paste, print this out, or do whatever with it, feel free to do so. If you feel the need to take it to a teacher, principal, or other staff member, please do. I can talk to them forever about this situation. I have expressed my opinion on this matter, not only for myself but all students at Tussey. Thank You, a concerned Tussey student.

After a fall on the ice last week, I visited my physician who told me I was going to need physical therapy. She told me I had options of where to go and left it up to me. I know the hospital has therapy but the hours aren’t the best for me. ProCare has been here a long time and know Chris Witt is the therapist there because I work out there. I pass Mile Level every day but recently noticed a new name, Drayer is located right next to Mile Level. I hadn’t heard of Drayer before and looked them up. They seemed very reputable but looking further on google I noticed Drayer was recently purchased by the investment firm of Goldman Sachs. This is the same Goldman Sachs investment company that in 2008 received a 12.9 billion dollar bailout in tax payer dollars then proceeded to pay huge bonuses to its employees and fire lower level employees. Anyone that feels similarly about Goldman Sachs should avoid using a healthcare company that espouses profits like Goldman Sachs as opposed to me the patient and my injury.

To the good residents of Tatesville; An incident of Attempted Aggravated Assault occurred in the village of Tatesville on sunday august 12th. Two individuals Bradley Robinson and Richie LaSalle arrived at a location between Brallier Station

 Rd & Big Bend Beach Rd., during the afternoon hours and Brad Robinson did repeatedly threaten to harm & or “kill” an individual with a golf club. As a concerned member of the community I do believe that we should initiate a neighborhood watch to assist our friends and neighbors. Please report any suspicious behavior or loud disturbances to the PSP at 814-623-6133. Thank you for your cooperation.Sheila Woy-Bambling

i just wanted to pass on some info to y’all so that you could inform your readers.
I have been getting phone calls from various numbers but it’s the same ppl, with a sales person telling me that I’m eligible for free alarm systems if I put a sign in their yard advertising their business. I’ve told them numerous times no and then the man asked me ‘well how do u protect your home?’ – when i told him it was none of his business he began cursing and threatening me. I reported it to the do not call list and the government fraud website. Then I did research. Their scam works 2 ways, they either con you into giving them your bank or credit card info “for a security deposit they won’t charge anything” and/or if you say your not interested they then target your home to rob it because they now know your home isn’t protected with a security system. What I understand, these con-artists travel from city to city. If you try calling the number back, half the time the number is out of service or it’s an auto system that hangs up on you – (A real legitimate business would not operate like this, which I told the one man who called and he promptly hung up on me.)
From what I read, they suggest telling the operator that you already have a security system, this should make your home less of a target.
I just wanted to try to inform as many ppl as possible about this. I don’t want anyone to get robbed or hurt from these scumbags.
Thank you

Just wanted to pass along that at the old East Freedom elementary school in East Freedom Blair County there is an open house for a free medical clinic that is opening. It is partnering with Nason hospital and area doctors and it is opening for those with little or no health insurance. This is going to be awesome for the surrounding communities. The clinic will be open to start one day a week. Then as more doctors and or physicians assistants and or nurses come aboard to help then it will expand to more days a week. We do expect it to get busy fast. It’s being opened by a program called Through. They have a website
It’s www.through4life.org

Dear Editor
I am writing to ask that you help support International Guide Dog Day on
April 25th by letting your readers know how just important a guide dog is to
us that are blind or visually impaired.
Over the past thirteen years my guides… have kept me safe every single day,
quietly leading me around obstacles and protecting me from unheard cars and
trucks as we cross busy intersections. They truly give us the confidence to
travel independently and safely. In a very real way, they save our lives
each day in very simple ways, with no fanfare or celebration.
My guides have been from Guiding Eyes for the Blind (www.guidingeyes.org)
and came at no cost to the recipients. They live to help us and thrive on
the love and praise we give back to them every day! “Working” in harness,
our guides are so focused that they sometimes appear to others as being
aloof, but believe me they are not! They do have a life! They can be
fun-loving crazy dogs when off harness and leash back at home. Many people
do not know this, so we want everyone to know our guides have a wonderful
life being able to travel with us everywhere we go.
Please help us celebrate the “gift of miracles” that these wonderful
companions are to us and for all that they do to protect us. My special
furpersons provide me such inner peace!
Thank you,
reader from everett

    I would like a simple question answered what does Bedford co. Correctional facility do with the money they make from holding state inmates? One block this passed week had no air conditioning and water laying on the floor. This passed winter during a cold spell there was no heat. One man was there 9 months to my understanding that was 27000 dollars paid from state to Bdcf. That’s one inmate !!! There are many state inmates there where’s the money gone ??????

    HELL-O HELL-O. THE ELECTION IS TODAY AND WE ALL HAVE A VOICE AS TO WHO WE WANT TO “BULLY” US FOR A TERM IN POLITICS. (WHICH ASS KISSER WILL YOU PICK?) WE ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE CHILDREN BEING BULLIED BUT IGNORE THE FACT THAT WE ARE ALL, THAT’S ALL, BULLIED BY THE BIG ASS GOVERNMENT THAT WE HAVE ALLOWED TO BECOME OUR DECISION MAKERS. FOR ME PERSONALLY I HAVE HAD MY FILL OF IT AND VOTE TO AT LEAST CHANGE THE “EMPTY POCKET AND THE FACE OF THE ELECTED OFFICIAL TAKING MONEY FROM THE TAXPAYERS”. STOP THE MONEY GIVEN TO THEM BY THE RICH AND POWERFUL. THE GREED IN AMERICAN POLITICS IS DISGUSTING, DEGRADING, INSULTING, AND SHOULD STOP. BUTT THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN UNTIL WE END THE CORRUPTION. STOP IT, STOP IT, STOP IT.

    ONE OF MY FAVORITE ISSUES IS THE LACK OF INFORMATION GIVEN TO THE PUBLIC BY OUR ILLUSTRIOUS “BEDFORD GAZETTE”. (I MEAN THAT AS AN INSULT OF THE FIRST ORDER.) HOW CAN THEY CALL THEMSELVES A NEWSPAPER WHEN MOST OF THE NEWS IS ANCIENT HISTORY. I LIVE FOR TODAY AND TOMORROW, WE SHOULD HAVE LEARNED FROM YESTERDAY BUT WE HAVE NOT. WE STILL HATE AND HARM OURSELVES AND ALL OTHERS. HINT; BEDFORD GAZETTE, IF YOU PRINT THE NEWS, (THAT’S NEWS OF TODAY), MAYBE YOU CAN SELL PAPERS LOCALLY AT THE SAME RATE AS THE ALTOONA MIRROR, MY PERSONAL FAVORITE.

    WE ARE AFRAID TO SPEAK BECAUSE THE MEDIA WILL RUN RAMPANT WITH A “WORD MISSPOKEN, MISUNDERSTOOD, OR EVEN USED VICIOUSLY BY OUR FELLOW AMERICANS WHO HAVE THEIR OWN AGENDA. STOP IT, STOP IT. SIT AT THE TABLE AND DISCUSS\NEGOTIATE OUR DIFFERENCES AND MUTUALLY AGREE ON A SOLUTION, A SAFE SOLUTION.

    NOW THAT THE ELECTION IS OVER PERHAPS ONE, JUST ONE OF THE OLD BOYS OR THE NEW BOYS WILL FIND THE TIME TO LOOK AT THE ISSUE OF INTERNATIONAL LEGAL; LEGAL STATE ISSUES AND LEGAL COUNTY ISSUES RELATIVE TO NATURAL GAS STORAGE IN BEDFORD COUNTY. I HAVE BEEN “OUT THERE” FOR FOUR YEARS TRYING TO GET SOMEONE, ANYONE TO HAVE A CONSCIENCE. NONE HAVE APPEARED ON THE HORIZON FOR FOUR YEARS. ONE CAN ONLY HOPE AND DREAM THAT SOMEONE CARES WITHOUT THEIR HAND OUT WANTING MONEY, MONEY, MONEY.

    PEOPLE ARE SERIOUSLY SICK, ANIMALS ARE DYING, THE PLANET IS HIGHLY CONTAMINATED, PROPERTY IS CONTAMINATED AND AREAS ARE DECLARED DISASTERS. GOD CREATED THE EARTH BUT MAN WILL DESTROY IS FOR GREED. HOPE YOU LINE YOUR PINE BOX WITH $$$$$$$$.

    PA HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVE ACCUSED ME OF BEING A TERRORIST BECAUSE I ASKED TO KNOW WHAT NiSOURCE, COLUMBIA GAS TRANSMISSION AND STORAGE, IS STORING UNDER 125 ACRES.

    US EPA REPRESENTATIVE ACCUSED ME OF BEING A TERRORIST ALSO WHEN ASKED FOR THE SAME INFORMATION.

    NUMEROUS ELECTED OFFICIALS HAVE DROPPED THE BALL WHEN ASKED TO OBTAIN THE INFORMATION REQUESTED. THANKS FOR NOTHING!

    WE HAVE ELECTED AND APPOINTED PLAYBOYS AND PLAYGIRLS TO HELP US IN OUR DAILY LIVES. MONUMENTAL MISTAKE, NO HELP IS ON THE HORIZON.

    THANK YOU BEDFORD COUNTY FREE PRESS FOR ALLOWING ME TO SPEAK OUT TO THE COMMON PEOPLE WHO ASK “WHAT AM I TO DO?”.

    FEEDING OFF THE VOTING TAXPAYER:
    BG 8-26-13 (Lobbyists)

    Why are we providing government pensions to these private organizations (lobbyists)?

    Maybe its because we are so badly battered and beaten by the ‘political bullys/vultures” with their private $uper pac$ that own and rum the country.

    WOW! I’ll accept $204,000 a year, health insurance, limousine with a driver and pension to play the ‘game’ with the big boys and girls.

    Job requirement is ‘government expertise’; better labelled “talent to buy and sellout taxpayer interest” (a.k.a. scams, ponzi schemes, dropped balls, miscue, gamble gone awry.

    CLEAN HOUSE AMERICA and throw out the trash. Put THEM on unemployment w/o health benefits or retirement.

    RECENTLY I HAD MY PROPERTY APPRAISED AND THE REAL ESTATE APPRAISER DECLARED THE PROPERTY CONTAMINATED, WITH WHAT, HOW, WHEN AND WHERE SHE WOULD NOT SAY BUTT SHE DECLARED THE PROPERTY
    CONTAMINATED IN WRITING. WHERE DID SHE GET THE INFORMATION?

    THE PURPOSE OF THE APPRAISAL IS TO LOWER MY ASSESSMENT TAX. THE
    BEDFORD COUNTY COMMISSIONERS AKA ASSESSMENT OFFICER PRICED THE PROPERTY AT $322,000 WITH ANNUAL TAXES BEING $4,500.
    THE REAL ESTATE APPRAISAL BECAME $170,000 CONTAMINATED PROPERTY.

    THE SECOND PURPOSE IS TO INVESTIGATE PLACING THE PROPERTY INTO
    THE CLEAN AND GREEN PROGRAM BUTT NO ONE, I REPEAT NO ONE CAN
    GIVE ME DIRECT REFERENCE TO THE PA STATE LAW THAT ALLOWS CONTAMINATED (SOIL AND WATER) GROUND TO BE IN THE CLEAN AND GREEN PROGRAM (PENN STATE, DEPT OF AG, STATE REP (2)). PERSONALLY I FIND IT SCARY TO ALLOW “PAPER PUSHERS” WHO FOLLOW DIRECTIONS TO TELL ME I CAN ENTER CONTAMINATED GROUND (125 ACRES) INTO A CLEAN AND GREEN. HOW CAN ON ANY PLANET CAN CONTAMINATED GROUND BE CLEAN AND GREEN?

    I WANT TO PERSONALLY READ THE LAW IN WRITING, NOT HAVE SOMEONE
    INTERPRET FOR ME. I CAN READ AND UNDERSTAND AND ASK QUESTIONS
    UNTIL YOU AND I UNDERSTAND EXACTLY WHAT IS HAPPENING.
    MY DEADLY FEAR IS THAT I WILL AGAIN BE TOLD AND SOLD LIES AFTER LIES AND PAY A PRICE THAT AS PROVEN IN THE RECENT PAST AFFECTS THE AIR I BREATH AND THE WATER I DRINK.

    TAKE SPECIAL NOTE OF THE FACT THAT THIS IS IN BEDFORD COUNTY, PA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA; YOUR PLANET, THE ONLY ONE YOU WILL EVERY LIVE ON.

    I HAVE TALKED TO 6 DIFFERENT ATTORNEYS ABOUT THIS ISSUE AND THEY ALL, YES ALL, STATED THAT THE ISSUE IS TOO BIG, TOO BIG FOR THEIR FIRM. WHERE DO I GO FROM HERE? JUST WHERE?

    ANY SUGGESTIONS CONSIDERED. BEEN DEALING WITH THIS ISSUE FOR 5 YEARS AND WILL CONTINUE TO MY LAST DAY ON THIS PLANET!!!!!!

    ALWAYS, MARY ELLEN

    In response to Jack from Bedford and his comments concerning Drayer physical . Drayer Physical therapy is the only place I would seek therapy and help for recovery from a sports or orthopedic related injury . The staff at Drayer Physical Therapy in Bedford on Mile Level , is extremely qualified and professional . I received tremendous help and gained improvement that I doubt that I could have had at any other therapy facility . Their concern and follow up on my condition impressed me . Their care was genuine and thorough . I learned allot too about how to help myself continue to improve. I would highly recommend Drayer and I have heard that many orthopedic Doctors are also referring patience there because of the consistently good results . Jack , I understand why you recommended some other place because of your friendship with someone at the place your receiving therapy but I am recommending Drayer simply because they seem to be very good at what they do .

    i have been a resident of the everett boro all my life and have always felt like it was a great town and bedford was a good county but lately i don ‘t feel that way, mainly because of the everett boro police department i understand they have only limited people on staff but they let way too much slide in one because they are friends with someone or they don’t want to do the proper paper work involved. i have seen and heard of many times that a law is/was broken and they don’t do anything about it.i have heard of an individual that stole 3 cars within a weekend and he got only probation and he was also suspected of stealing out of cars but nothing was ever done other then some questioning. then there is the fact that the boro has on several occasions have picked up underage drinkers and done nothing but take them home. these are the reasons some children never learn a lesson cause they think if they know the cop on duty then they can get away with it. now what is wrong with this picture? when i go to my job i don’t get paid just to get sit around so why do some of these police officers? we the tax payers pay them to do a job so why is it only sometimes, i can understand letting some things slide but so many times is doing nothing for the youth that are causing trouble that they continue to do what they want and again as long as they know or their parents know the cop on duty its ok.their was an incident just the other night at the sheetz in everett that a parent was drunk with 4 children under the age of 16 screaming and yelling about her daughter could kick some other girls butt and how she was gonna show them, she also went on to say that it happened right beside the boro office and the officer on duty just told the woman and the children to go home…..this is whats wrong. he should have done his job and arrested the woman for public drunkenness and turned her into cys but instead nothing happened. i can only hope she and the children made it home ok. but what can we do to change?maybe we just let it go and hope we never really need the boro cops to help we people are in need, or maybe we rally and say its time for a change.

    I’d like to thank all the folks that attended our successful Appreciation Dinner on Saturday, June 22nd, at Chalybeate Springs Ministry, Inc. We had a great meal, with prime rib prepared by Jean Bonnet, and wonderful live music by “AJ” and John Topper. It’s amazing to see all the improvements that have been made in the building during the past year!

    American Greed Continues:
    Last month the price of gas/oil in Austintown, Ohio was $3.29.
    Today the price is a WHOPPING $3.89 FOR 90% GAS AND 10% WESSON
    OIL. FORGET METHANE GAS SMELLS, THE EXHAUST FROM MY MUFFLER
    SMELLS LIKE ONION RINGS, FISH, FRENCH FRIES, CHEESE STICKS, DIFFERENT BUT WHAT ABOUT FUTURE GLOBAL WARMING. MY RESPONSIBILITIES NEVER END………………….

    CONTINUM ON THE ATTEMPTS TO OBTAIN A REFINANCE ON MY MORTGAGE
    HAS PLACED ME IN THE POSITION OF “ANGER MANAGEMENT”.
    FIRST, THE ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES, WELL KNOWN TO THE FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS IN BEDFORD COUNTY. (FRONT PAGE NEWS OVER THE YEARS OF ‘BULLYING’ BY GAS DRILLERS AND THEIR POLITICAL CLOUT AND FINANCIAL BANKERS (BACKERS). ARE A HUGE BARRIER TO THE APPRAISAL OF 125 ACRES. APPRAISED AT $190,000 BY AGENTS; $424,000 BY BEDFORD COUNTY COMMISSIONERS. APPEAL DENIED IN 2012, THEREFORE I MUST PAY $3,500.00 ON A WORTHLESS, YES WORTHLESS PIECE OF PROPERTY, I CANNOT REFINANCE AND CANNOT NOT SELL. (LOOKING FOR RELIEF.)
    PERSONAL COMPLAINTS ABOUT MY TRAVELS TO FINANCIAL BUSINESS IS MY PERSONAL REQUEST THAT THEY AT LEAST READ THE GOVERNMENT EXPLANATIONS REGARDING ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES.
    SECOND REQUEST IS THAT THEY DRESS IN SOMETHING OTHER THAN A SEE-THROUGH DRESS AND FLIP-FLOPS, YES FLIP-FLOPS. INSULTING DRESS CODE. ALSO REQUEST THAT THE ‘MILK DUDS’ AND ‘PLUMBERS CRACK’ BE COVERED. THIS RELAXED DRESS CODE HAS GONE TOO FAR. WHY BOTHER?
    TODAY’S HEADLINES: IRS, NSA, AP AND THE GLARING FACT THAT ONLY……………..15% OF THE REGISTERED VOTERS IN THE TINY BEDFORD COUNTY OF REGISTERED VOTERS SHOWED UP ON MAY 21, 2013 SENDS A MESSAGE BUT NO ONE CAN READ OR FOR THAT MATTER ‘MAN UP’ AND SPEAKETH THE TRUTH.

  10. mary ellen mcconnell says:

    american greed in bedford county.

    I have been TRYING since MARCH 2013 to refinance my mortgage
    but after multiple visits to the numerous financial agencies
    in Bedford County, no success. BARE MARKET.

    The financial institutions have their hand out and many have
    inserted it in your pockets. BEWARE, they are not there for
    you, as is well known, they want your money for their stockholders. wall street, harrisburg and washington.

    Another recent gut wrenching knock on the door, was a “new”
    farmer who wanted to plant corn on the FARM. The figures
    presented were from $16.00 to $60.00 per acre. HOLD ON THERE!

    After listening and taking the proposal to the Bedford Farm
    Bureau and the United States Department of Agriculture the
    REAL FACTS are the “new” farmer in last year’s corn market
    was paid $7.00 per bushel with a 100 bushel yield per acre.
    THAT MAKES HIS PAYMENT $700.00 PER ACRE. (REMEMBER THE LAND
    OWNER IS TO SIGN ON THE DOTTED LINE FOR $16.00 AND/OR $60.00)

    With corn being used for plastic, horse feed, dog feed, people
    feed, cooking oil and of course, DON’T FORGET NOW WE MUST BUY
    COOKING OIL IN 10% OF EVERY GALLON OF GAS WE BUY. IN 2013 THE
    CORN SUPPLIERS IN THE MIDWEST HAVE WEATHER PLANTING ISSUES AND
    YOUR IMAGINATION WILL CERTAIN SEE THE PRICE OF A BUSHEL OF
    CORN GO OFF THE CHARTS.

    NOTE: according to USDA and BFB if the planting is well done
    the profit could be not 100 bushels but as high as 300 bushels
    which puts the profit, at last years prices as high as $2,100.00 per acre.

    How much of a moron can I be signing a contract paying the
    landowner $16.00 or $60.00 per acre. I like the “Old standard
    agreements where the landowner received 1/3 of the profit and the “new” farmer received 2/3 of the profit. BUT because of the AMERICAN GREED ACT that exists in today’s BULL MARKET ANYTHING GOES.

    BEWARE THE KNOCK ON THE DOOR IS NOT TO HELP YOU BUT TO STEAL FROM YOU..

    MEMO: (Mary Ellen Mouthing Off)

    I did not get the job. I went to a Bedford County Employment Agency in response to an ad for a dishwasher. I filled out all the forms, agreed to a background check and took necessary exams.

    After Eight (8) hours of standing and washing pots, pans and dishes I was told two (2) days later the assignment had ended with no reason given…

    I’m 70 year’s old, own a piece of property completely contaminated with environmental hazards but I must pay thousands of dollars in real estate and school taxes

    only to have my name on the incorrectly certified court filed deed and lease. B—-S—-. I have no other rights of ownership. (Eminent Domain overrides ownership

    as of July 2010).

    I have two jobs already; First to stay alive to collect a retirement income; Second as a caregiver which is by scheduling only; Third was to be as a dishwasher;

    Now, if I’m lucky beginning January 1, 2014 the Fourth will be as Tax Collector. (If I’m lucky in May and November).

    Special note should be made of the fact that the Employment Agency asked questions to complete a credit form for them and perhaps the employer to receive

    monies from the Taxpayer Funded Employment Fund. They receive these “Credits” with the exclusive use of my name and Social Security Number;

    via Federal Government (aka Politicians) rules.

    I am tripping out angry about this for many reasons; one it happened to me; two is happens to anyone; three this is unmerciful; four the future looks grim

    for us all; five the Superpac Employer does not, I repeat does not have the “Man Up” ability to explain the reason for termination.

    “I have a Dream” to survive and help the next generation understand and cope with the mess we are in and the mess they will inherit.

    Always, Mary Ellen McConnell, Clearville, Pa.

    P .S. DID AGENCY AND EMPLOYER MAKE MORE MONEY WITH MY NAME AND SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER

    THAN I DID WORKING 8 HOURS? YOU BETCHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. Humpty Dumpty says. says:

    To the Tussey Mountain Voters, Taxpayers and Sports Fans!
    Here’s one you are going to LOVE . Before a school board member steps down from his position he made the statement that the board is going to try and sneak in a FOUR year contract for the A.D.. If this is passed it will cost you as tax payers $60,000. dollars alone for his salary , which does not include what he turns in for reimbursements . This A. D. has done nothing to help our sports programs. He works against against coaches and does not back themas he should . Talk about a conflict of interest as A.D. he referees track meets , basketball games and he’s even the game manager at these events , with extra pay .
    Maybe like coaching jobs his job should also be open to search for the best candidate for the job , instead of making it his retirement cushion.
    If you feel as I do there is a meeting April 15,2013 so before hand maybe you should pick up your phones and talk to a board member or go to the meeting at the TUSSEY MOUNTAIN High School at 6:00 p.m. After all it’s your tax dollars at work.

  15. rebecca says:

    I’m writing in regards to a comment Mr.Higgins made during a drug bust. In his statement he made he used the word”junkies”.As a professional shouldn’t he have said “drug addict”? I agree that this county has seen more than its share of drug related crimes and problems. And as a recovering “junkie” myself who has worked very hard to stay sober,regain trust,and prove myself to be a( good citizen I find that remark very offensive. Not all addicts want to continue that life style.Not all addicts have no shame,embarrassment,regrets and no sense of right and wrong. Not all of us brag or feel proud of the things we have done to wrong innocent people,most of who we are close to and love deeply. As for me I’m thankful the law caught up to me when it did or I may not be alive today.However I know that calling me a “junkie” at my hearing or in a statement about me would not have had a positive impact on my recovery. It was the support of my family,the few positive N/A meetings this county has,and yes the “old” county jail guards that treated you like a human that made a deference on my attitude,my self-esteem,and my motivation and outlook on life that helped me realize I am worth something more than how I was portraying myself. And needless to say those gaurds are no longer there and I believe one of the reasons is just that. That they have a heart and went above n beyond their duty to listen and care amd give positive feedback to us “junkies” who needed to hear that even though we made mistakes its never to late to grow up,ask for forgiveness,and become a better person and try to help the next struggling addict! Addiction is a disease,at first it may be a choice but it no longer turns into a choice it becomes a sickness and yes there are some who are not ready to become better and do the right thing but what about us that are and have?????I just believe that Mr.Hig??gins using the term junkie shows prejudice as a professional he should have chosen a better word.Then again who am I????? Ill tell ya who I am….I AM A RECOVERING “JUNKIE” AND ILL GUARANTEE THAT IF YOU DIDNT KNOW ME THEN, TODAY YOU’D NEVER HAVE GUESSED THATS WHO I WAS.

    Thank God for that..

  17. Lori Miller says:

    Well then I apologize for misinterpreting your statements to me. The information about Mr. Higgins that I brought up was public information so I dont feel as though that was an attack, just a general statement. I do agree with you that it has become difficult to trust anyone in this day and age but this was just a total shocker to me and I was outraged. I do believe that I would have felt the same way even if I didn’t know the person the statement was made about because again I just felt as though that was something that should have been kept to himself. Furthermore, would you not agree with me that the statement, if it had to be made at all, should not have been made in front of an entire room of people?? Perhaps a little more discretion should have been used. I don’t want to sit here and keep debating this issue with you because we could go back and forth with this all day and I do thank you for your time and effort into this site as I frequent it on a daily basis. I just thought that perhaps I could have more input from the community on this, or at least anyone else who has had trouble with him on ANY level. I was actually surprised the amounts of comments I received on FB about various incidents with him and the way that they have been treated by him in the past.

    i dont believe anyone attacked you. you came on here asking about higgins conduct. you have to remember we live in a world were we cant even trust out neighbor anymore. that was not an attack on you. so let me ask you this. you said you dont know higgins personally yet you decided to bring up about his cheating on his wife. which is cool, dont you think that was an attack on someone you dont know?. i just asked you a couple of questions. and voiced my opinion in response to your’s. there is no attack going on against you. you are mistaken

    I’m not trying to hide anything at all. I thought, perhaps I was mistaken, that court of any kind is a professional setting. There is a judge there, various attornies and yes of course, the criminals there. So are you now telling me that a judge or an attorney is not a professional?? Hmmm, really wish i would have thought of that. This was not a personal attack on you or this site and I’m having a hard time understanding why you decided to attack me just because I won’t give you someone’s name to blast all over the place. I’m also not understanding why it is SO important for the name of this individual to be announced when the nature of this discussion was clearly just a question about whether or not it is appropriate for a District Attorney to slander someone’s name such as he did. If you read back in further posts you will see that I clearly stated that EVERYONE is entitled to an opinion of another but that I found it unprofessional for it to be stated in a setting of such. I don’t personally know Mr. Higgins and this was the first time I ever had interaction with him but from what I witnessed…I am not impressed. That is all, thank you for your time.

    so you dont want to announce his name, which tells me you are trying to hide something, why dont you just tell us who the accused was??, and further more, who are you to decide what is a professional setting and what is not?, i find it a bit funny you think a building full of accused criminals is a professional settings. my guess is the person he called an idiot is most likely an idiot. just because he is the D.A. does not mean he cant a personal opinion. you seem to have a personal opinion of the D.A. dont you ?

  21. Lori Miller says:

    In my opinion, the defendants’ name is irrelevant in this letter. The points have been stated without naming anyone in order to avoid further embarrassment. Perhaps you don’t see the relevancy in my question of him cheating on his wife but in MY opinion, he has no right to call anyone an idiot when his actions were clearly idiotic as well. Everyone makes mistakes and everyone has the right to be forgiven for what they have done as there is no judge other than God. My point of all this ranting is the idea that he PUBLICLY called someone out of their name in a professional setting and that is definitely not how someone of his supposed stature should be conducting themselves.

  22. BCFP says:

    so what is the defendant’s name?, and your asking how higgins holds the title he does, the voters voted him in that office 3 times now. what does higgins cheating on his wife or getting into a bar fight have to do with anything he states as his opinion concerning this unknown defendant ?

  23. Lori Miller says:

    Mr. Editor, the incident that im speaking of happened at Central Court in Everett on December 19th at approx. 1030 am. This was all stated in front of the ENTIRE roomful of people in the Victim/Witness room. Mr. Higgins also stated that “the only thing the defendant hasn’t done is rape or murder” which is NOT true. I have known this man for lots of years and i know his criminal history and believe me when i tell you that he has a past but not to the extreme that Mr. Higgins implied. I have known this man to make sure that elderly that lived in his building were fed everyday, had a homeless man that he fed everyday, took care of a person with seizures for approx. 3 yrs and assisted me, being a severe diabetic for approx. 2 yrs and if Mr. Higgins thought he knew the defendant so well, why wasn’t any of this stated?? The victim even told Mr. Higgins that the sentence was a bit extreme to which Mr. Higgins replied “if you all think this man is such a hero, you can all leave here now and go home and cry about it”. Now, this man, Mr. Higgins has been in bar fights and got caught cheating on his wife publicly so I am now wondering how he is even still allowed to hold the title that he does. I understand he is voted in by the people but I’m also wondering do those same people know how this man really is???

  24. BCFP says:

    can i have more details. like where was this at. bedford courthouse or central court in everett. plus who are we talking about when you say the defendant.

  25. Lori Miller says:

    I would like to pose a question to all the readers on here. Why is it that DA Bill Higgins is allowed to make PERSONAL comments about a defendant or their case in a room full of people who dont even have anything to do with the case?? I personally witnessed Mr. Higgins walk into a room this morning to notify a “victim” what was going to happen with their case and specifically called the defendant “an idiot” in front of EVERYONE in that room. The defendants sister was sitting there listening to everything Mr. Higgins was saying about the defendant as was I and after hearing that I finally stood right up and told him, out loud, how unprofessional that comment was and his response to me was “Really?”. Well, yes Mr. Higgins, REALLY. I do believe that EVERYONE has a right to their own opinion of another but to express that opinion in a professional setting, in front of people who don’t even know the defendant or anything about the case is unacceptable. No matter the reason the defendant was there, it was NOT Mr. Higgins’ right to publicly name call this person. All this coming from a man who was publicly caught having an affair….now I ask this…Who is the idiot here?

    In regards to all the judge ling money mishandeling, totally believe he’d go there. Someone should look into his past cases where the ‘judge’ acted soo professional toward the parties involved. There are transcripts of how his attitude was, apparently something was bothering him. If he goes down on this money thing and can no longer be a judge for Bedford County – good!
