Sandra Smith manipulated the damn station out of the family and then it was able to be sold so she can continue to have a lifetime job. I remember when I used to go to the station almost daily and I also remember when Sandra used to work at Pilot Life in the same building. I knew Herb real well. However I ain’t going into that part.
Well the word on the street was the owner of WHIG-TV Herb Greenberg died at Sandra’s house. It was on the street that they were going together. Damn makes me wonder who else is she may be going with.
This morning I just happened to turn the tv to Whig something I normally don’t do because I can’t stomach them racist. But since my stomach was already tore up I said hell go for it. I looked at them to ignants Clint Williams and Wayne Holloman and damn you just can’t make this stuff up.
I hear folk say they try to call in to the talk show but they screen calls. I didn’t expect to get through but I did.
I asked them since they wanted to talk about it was not unanimous that all council members didn’t say it was a hit list. I said do you not think they talked about it in closed session so therefore when Knight said all of them said they didn’t say it that was the reason why he said it I know how politics work and I told them I would bet them my paper check that I bet they discussed it in closed session. I said you racist get up here and twist stuff and I said bye.
They ended the show by saying don’t take their word for what is going on with the city, look at the video. They say at the end look at what AB Whitley said and Bill Long. So what in the hell the purpose of looking at the whole thing for if you gonna tell them to look at Whitley and Long. Hell when they look at it they will see them but nope they want to get their point across through Whitley and Long.
But what I liked the most is when Clint Williams said when he and his wife moved to Nashville, but ain’t that something because to live in Nashville is not in the city limits. Oh but because I don’t live in Rocky Mount I can’t have a voice. Them Devils are a liar.
Read about the purchase for yourself, WHIG-TV Sold.
The Gate Keeper’s response: Been hearing about the conditions over at the jail so now it is finally being reported on. Looks like Nash County has some issues too however it do not stop with the jail. Maybe 2019 is the year of EXPOSURE.
Two local leaders who agree on nearly everything are at loggerheads over what to do about the aging Nash County jail.
Sheriff Keith Stone sees open bay dormitories and faltering equipment as security issues.
“We’ve got staffing issues — a 30 percent turnover rate — and it’s unsafe with inmates roaming around the dorms. We’ve got murderers in there with a guy who shoplifted at Walmart,” Stone said. “The jail can’t be fixed with cleaning and painting.”
Robbie Davis, chairman of the Nash County Board of Commissioners, said a lot of jails across the state use dormitories and maintenance issues can be addressed without remodeling.
Jailers describe a constant battle to keep operational a jail built sometime in the 1970s with a 1990s addition.
Stone recently invited the county commissioners to tour the jail.
Davis said he hasn’t done so, but he spent a night in jail as a young man and has no desire to see the inside walls again.
Commissioner Mary Wells took a tour. An octogenarian, Wells was advised by senior county officials not to go because of her low immune system. She’s now sick in bed, according to a source in county government. (Read more)
The Watch Dog response: Wow no comments from the racist folk who comment on everything that goes on with the Rocky Mount City Council. Oh but this involves Robbie Davis who has been outspoken against the Rocky Mount City Council.
After nearly two hours of cordial conversations about event and programs affecting the school district Thursday night, Nash County commissioners and the Nash-Rocky Mount Board of Education held a lengthy, heated discussion about the construction of the Nash-Rocky Mount Early College High School on the campus of Nash Community College.
The high school, which now meets in mobile units on the college campus, is slated to move into Building C on the college campus once the college’s new cosmetology building is completed and renovations to Building C can be accomplished. Nash County commissioners have already set aside $750,000 in funding for those renovations, Robbie Davis, chairman of the Nash County Commissioners told members of the two bodies at the joint meeting.

I have been actively engaged in politics since the late 80’s and I have seen the way issues and people are dealt with. Folk don’t want to call it like it is because they are either scared and/or want to just simply play it safe while nothing changes.
I represent the everyday folk those who don’t know what is going on and when they hear sound bites on the TV and hearing folk talk amongst them as they come and go, they simply don’t understand what the real is at hand and who the folk are that are truly the problem. This is because some don’t want to stir up yep that’s right, but they act as if they want to see change. Well change do not come by chance but by only by fighting. The only way to fight is to fight with calling out the trues so that folk can know what they are up against. One can’t fight if they don’t have a personal interest in a fight. Folk without a personal interest in a fight will simply choose to just walk away but not knowing that they are going to be beat down when they should have been told why they were going to be beat down by the folk in the know.
I have said this before, when the Rocky Mount City Council was about to become a black majority it was reported in a Common Ground Meeting that the white powers that be said that if the Rocky Mount City Council became a black majority that they would move out of Rocky Mount. They said the council would be a black majority but the white powers that be would have the money. Well they have been fighting this black majority council since they took office. It reminds me of the same situation when we voted in the 1st Black President, the Ignant Racist White Folk have been fighting him from day one til now although he is on the way out of office. But the difference with the city council they can’t seem to get these guys voted out and the main thing is they can serve until voted out unlike the President has term limits.
How the talk of the split came about. Nash County Commissioner Robbie Davis white male brought it out. He is the spokesperson for the powers that be some white and some black. Robbie and friends have a problem with the Rocky Mount City Council so they do not want the black majority city council to appear that they are doing all they can to make Rocky Mount a better place to live, work and play. Thanks to the whites on the council who are trying to do what is best for all folk in Rocky Mount but not not limited to. Davis and friends do not want the Rocky Mount City Council at the table so when you are not at the table you are on the menu. Davis and friends do not want the Rocky Mount City Council to give money towards the school system making up the gap difference from which the monies come from Edgecombe County Public Schools so they try to scare the hell out of folk in Rocky Mount by trying to paint a picture of what is and what ain’t a problem. The school situation as is only problem is that the schools on the Edgecombe County side of Rocky Mount has been neglected while the schools on the Nash side has been kept up and/or new schools have been built.
In the beginning all of the Nash Commissioners even the Democrats Fred Belfield, Lou Richards and Mary Wells voted along with Robbie and the other Republicans. Then after some folk questioned the Democrats they spoke out that they were against. But then recently Belfield came up with a plan but was rejected so the vote was all in favor again. But the most recent is now the Belfield and the 2 other Democrats say they didn’t get all of the information and felt they were pushed to agree with Robbie and crew so they sent out a press release stating such. But why did they vote again with Robbie and crew if they felt like they were forced to.
Folk it is not about the school split. It is about POWER!
Oh but folk don’t want to talk about these trues and want to beat around the bush. This is why it takes so long for change because folk don’t say what they mean and mean what they say. Well I ain’t the one!
Now Run & Tell That!
The Political Agitator’s response: Whew the comments after the article though.
In an article in the Aug. 4 paper about the school split, it said that Mayor David Combs has presented a letter to Nash commissioners and to our state lawmakers indicating that the city of Rocky Mount is against the splitting of the school systems along county lines.
Well, that is not true.
Mayor Combs cannot speak for all the citizens of Rocky Mount when he has not surveyed the citizens.
The citizens have not been allowed to vote on this. (Source: Read more)
The Political Agitator’s response: Sources say that Robbie Davis has an issue with the Rocky Mount City Council especially Councilman Andre Knight so this is why he is pushing this so hard. This is what white privilege is all about a wealthy businessman that has an issue with a majority black city council. There were a couple of whites who said that if the council became a black majority that that is all they would have because they (the whites) had the money. Well so glad this council has been working together trying to make Rocky Mount a better place to live, work and play. Oh we know what happened to the bond referendum Nash Commissioners got the money from Edgecombe County and little to no money were spent on the schools on the Edgecombe County side of Rocky Mount.
Local and state officials want to see the proposed split of Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools put up for a referendum vote.
“Let the people in the school district decide,” Nash County Commissioner Robbie Davis said. “If they say they want to keep things like they are then we as commissioners should get our nose out of it.”
All students living in Rocky Mount attend Nash-Rocky Mount schools whether they live in Nash or Edgecombe counties, except students who live in areas of the city expanded into Edgecombe after the district was created.
Nash commissioners recently voted to divide the school district along county lines, which would send about 2,000 students from the Edgecombe side of Rocky Mount to Edgecombe County Public Schools. (Source: Read more)
The Political Agitator’s response: Someone said that Bob Murphy firing was connected to money being given to the school system and Robbie Davis got mad with him.
Members of the Nash-Rocky Mount Board of Education might have found a friendlier audience in a hornets nest than the one they got in a special meeting of constituents Monday night.
The folks who filled a room at Rocky Mount High School weren’t happy. And who can blame them?
It’s hard to conceive of a more botched up way of firing a superintendent. Word leaked out months ago that Dr. Anthony Jackson was likely to be forced out of his position before next fall. And yet school board members continued to stay mum when asked repeatedly what was going on by reporters … by parents … by teachers … and even by county commissioners. (Source: Read more)
