Chairman Bernard holding Mystery night meetings at the courthouse?
night (Tuesday, 8/22/06) a citizen watchdog stumbled onto
something worth reporting to citizens.
is a summary of what the Citizen Watchdog reported to TWG:
22, 2006--Telephone call conversation—
CWD (Citizen Watchdog)—Is this the Watchdogs?
TWG—Yes it is.
CWD—What’s going on at the courthouse?
TWG—No idea. Why do you ask?
CWD—I was going through the cut through road behind the
courthouse to McMichael’s and saw Jack Bernard getting out
of his truck and going into the courthouse.
TWG—Was anyone else there?
CWD—Well, a woman with short blonde hair and a man, a pretty
got out of the truck with him.
TWG—A pretty tall guy?
CWD—Yeah, he was a big guy with shorts on. Looked like he
bald on the back.
TWG—What kind of truck was this?
CWD—A burgundy Toyota truck.
TWG—Was anyone else at the courthouse?
CWD—There was only one other truck, a small white pickup

see anyone else?
for calling and for keeping your eyes open.
Bernard’s involved I know something’s going on.
We don’t know
if any other commissioners were involved, but none were
seen by the CWD. However, because the Commissioners
recently spoke about holding meetings away from the public
eye so they could "discuss things"
it makes us wonder just what was going on.
citizens keeping their eyes and ears open and letting us
know what is going on. We have our own suspicions as to
whom the 2 people were with Chairman Bernard. All this will
come out sooner or later, and with the help of all citizens,
Chairman’s Bernard "special" meetings can be stopped.
