Be True To Yourself And Begin To Work On Your Stuff! We All Have Been There Done That!

Folks it is time to stop getting up here on Social Media trying to act like we all that and know we got some issues. It is okay we all have had and/or have some but you better act like you know because they ain’t goings nowhere until you be true to yourself.

It is ok we all have been there, done that and if you have not been there, just keep on living. But if you are goings through something right now, stop acting like you don’t know.

Some get on facebook trying to act like you so holy, living the good life but then you are hurting. You can’t begin to address your hurt until you be true to yourself.

I know you and you know me.

You see I have been going through some stuff recently but it is all good, but trust me I have dealt with my stuff however some is still ongoing. But I got this.

But can you say I got this? Remember the same folks you are trying to fool, they know you too!

You are not alone!

Now meditate on that first!

Then, Run and Tell That!

Tarboro Town Mayor Rick Page Refused To Resign However The Council Changed His Insurance Policy

I can’t just make this stuff up. Watch the video and see for yourself what took place. Listen carefully to the mayor’s comments towards the very end of the video.

I am trying to figure out what audit report Garland Sheppard has read because maybe there is more than one. The one I read was clear about the findings and the recommendation to the council.

I posted the following on my blog recently, “Ignant Comments On Tarboro 27886 Facebook Page, My Ignant Butt Trying To Figure Out How The Following Be Accusations/Allegations?”

I strongly feel that Sarah Peveler is Right On! by starting a petition to ask the current Taboro Town Mayor Rick Page (former Electric Department Director) to step down since he will not do it on his own. Some say this is being the judge and jury. Hell I say it is common sense. The following is not accusations, nor allegations from what I read and comprehend however my ignant ass has been wrong before.

I didn’t make this mess up read it for yourself on The NC Auditor’s Website



The Town’s former Electric Department Director (Director) inappropriately received $27,770.55 in reimbursements for health insurance payments for his ex-wife after submitting documentation asserting that the health insurance was for him. In addition, payments totaling $16,757.25 did not have taxes withheld as required by law.

Director Misrepresented Documents Submitted for Reimbursement
The Director (current Mayor) received reimbursements from the Town for payments for his ex-wife’s health insurance that he submitted as if it were for his own supplemental health insurance. He originally told investigators that he submitted documentation for payment each month and implied that it was for his health insurance. He later admitted that this documentation was for his ex-wife’s health insurance.

The former Town Manager approved a request from the Director approximately 14 years ago allowing the Director to forgo town-provided health insurance and instead directly receive the amount the Town would have paid for his health insurance premiums. The Director said he already received health insurance coverage as a military retiree and did not need the Town’s coverage. He claimed he intended to use the payment from the Town to purchase a supplemental policy for items that his military insurance did not cover; however, he did not buy a supplemental policy.

Town’s Failure to Withhold Taxes on Health Insurance
The Town failed to withhold taxes on $16,757.25 in payments provided to the Director after his retirement in May 2009. The payments represented the amount the Town would have paid for the Director’s health insurance after retirement if he had accepted the benefit. The Director did not submit reimbursement requests to show he had used the money to purchase health care insurance, meaning the payments should have been reported as income under the rules associated with a so-called non-accountable plan.5


The Town of Tarboro should require the former Electric Director (current Mayor) to repay $27,770.55 in misrepresented reimbursements for his ex-wife’s health insurance.

The Town of Tarboro should implement controls to ensure all benefits paid to employees are accurately recorded and reported in compliance with tax laws.

The Town of Tarboro should require financial arrangements outside of normal procedures to be approved by the Town Council.

5 Non-accountable plan defined—employer’s reimbursement or allowance arrangement that does not meet the following rules (IRS Publication 463):
1. Expenses must have a business connection

2. You must adequately account to your employer for these expenses
