You're kidding, right?

It seems that some people have called us complaining that Sheriff W.D. "Billy" Stokes has stopped yet another publicly-funded vehicle driven by someone that works for the county's emergency operations center.

According to our source, a school bus was stopped last week by Sheriff Stokes. The driver, who is a dispatcher (Stokes and the dispatch have been battling it out for a while now), was told there was something wrong with her bus.

Still, there was no citation given, according to our source.

Stokes has claimed in the past that he doesn't specifically target or harass EOC workers.

Then what was wrong with this bus? Since there is no citation then it becomes — as it has in the past — a game of he said/she said.

What really went on that day?

Like the lollipop commercial said ... "The world may never know."

I really wish you were kidding about this, but I don't think that you are. Surely there is someone who could sit down with Sheriff Stokes and have a serious talk to get to the bottom of all these (I want to use a word here but I am afraid that it wouldn't be all that nice) actions.

WHAT is he thinking?

What about Sheriff Stokes' Wal Mart parking lot fiasco over the weekend?

What happened at Wal-Mart? Crazy as it may even be, I bet I'll believe it. That man needs to STEP DOWN and let the residents of the county elect a sheriff that WILL do the job he was elected to do!

With all these complaints against Billy Stokes is there not something our county can do about getting him out of office? I am so tired of reading in the Standard and other papers about his latest fiascos.Enough is enough already!

As I hear that it was indead a school bus and it was about noon. So if this is right and it is that means it had to be a Pre-School bus and so it cannot be a he said, she said because there would have been at least one monitor of adult age other than the driver.
