    It will be interesting to see if Lee May ends the wasteful 24 hour police protection at the Ellis home.

        The 24 hour police protection is not a “benefit” like health insurance or a pension plan. It resulted from an agreement between Ellis and the police chief. May could show his independence from Ellis by ending this waste of manpower. Will he end it? I doubt it. Hopefully May will run the county better then he runs his personal finances for he has a history of bankruptcy.

    Governor’s been doing a lot of suspending lately…wonder if Cherokee County School Board member Ms. Marlow will get the same after her Grand Jury hearing August 12th?
