People, stop being door mats for your corrupt local government. In what another county in Tennessee has it not been one black commissioner ever, but Sumner County. If there has not been one commissioner of color, then name them. I am not talking about City Councilman. The current Commissioners during this term, allowed the abuse of the kids in the American Rescue Plan of 2021, which was enacted into law on 11 March 2021: RE: Compliance with Section 2001 of the American Rescue Act of 2021 (Employment and Secondary School Emergency Relief Funds, Enacted on 11 March 2021 TITLE II—COMMITTEE ON HEALTH, EDUCATION, LABOR, AND PENSIONS Subtitle A—Education Matters PART 1—DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION SEC. 2001. ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOL EMERGENCY RELIEF FUND. (a) IN GENERAL. (b) —In addition to amounts otherwise available through the Education Stabilization Fund, there is appropriated to the Department of Education for fiscal year 2021, out of any money in the Treasury not otherwise appropriated, $122,774,800,000, to remain available through September 30, 2023, to carry out this section. (b) GRANTS.—From funds provided under subsection (a), the Secretary shall— (c) (d) (1) use $800,000,000 for the purposes of identifying homeless children and youth and providing homeless children and youth with— (e) (f) (A) wrap-around services in light of the challenges of COVID–19; and (g) (h) (B) assistance needed to enable homeless children and youth to attend school and participate fully in school activities; and (i) (j) (2) from the remaining amounts, make grants to each State educational agency in accordance with this section. (c) ALLOCATIONS TO STATES.—The amount of each grant under subsection (b) shall be allocated by the Secretary to each State in the same proportion as each State received under part A of title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 in the most recent fiscal year. (d) SUBGRANTS TO LOCAL EDUCATIONAL AGENCIES.— (1) IN GENERAL.—Each State shall allocate not less than 90 percent of the grant funds awarded to the State under this section as subgrants to local educational agencies (including charter schools that are local educational agencies) in the State in proportion to the amount of funds such local 20 USC 3401 note.

(k) (l) (2) AVAILABILITY OF FUNDS.—Each State shall make allocations under paragraph (1) to local educational agencies in an expedited and timely manner and, to the extent practicable, not later than 60 days after the receipt of such funds. Accordingly, contact me or IM me if your kids did not receive the laptops or wi-fi Congress approved. Review the underlined text and notice the words expedite and timely manner, which has not been complied with on this 30 day of April 2022, more than 1 year later. Notice the not later than 60 days after receipt of funds. Maybe, the State needs to tell the people has the funds been receipt for and when. Maybe the District Attorney can answer when the funds were received? People when you make a bond and the offense is reversed, then your bond funds be paid back to you and in twice the amount. As you will see you suppose to get a certified order and provide to the Director of Finance: 40-11-205. Refund of forfeiture payments on reversal. Money paid into the treasury by virtue of a judgment of the circuit or criminal court upon a forfeited recognizance shall be refunded to the party paying the same, upon the reversal of the judgment by the supreme court, on appeal or writ of error duly prosecuted. The commissioner of finance and administration shall give the party a warrant for the money upon the production of a certified copy of the judgment of reversal. [Code 1858, § 5184 (deriv.

(a) Any contract, agreement, promise, transaction or other similar undertaking, entered into between a professional bondsman and any other person or persons, wherein the bondsman charges, demands, contracts for, accepts, collects or receives any sum of money, fee, compensation, premium, gratuity or other consideration, return or favor of any character, in consideration of the bondsman's performance of, or the bondsman's promise, offer or attempt to do or perform, directly or indirectly, any of the acts or things declared to be unlawful by §§ 40-11-307 -- 40-11-310, are declared to be against public policy, illegal and void. (b) Any person or persons, who pay out money or part with any other thing of value under the contract, agreement, promise, transaction or undertaking may file suit, for that person or for the use of that person or persons for whom the person paid the money or delivered the other thing of value to the bondsman, in any court having jurisdiction thereof and recover the consideration so paid or parted with and, in addition, a forfeiture in an amount equal to twice the sum of money paid or twice the value of any other consideration parted with or both, as the case may be. People of Sumner County, provide me the case number of the reversed offense, and I will assist you in obtaining what is due to you by the law, which has been presented to your own eyes, not a second set of rules. Instant message me and the process must begin
Each of you know of the theft in the bonding process with Ray Whitley and the 18th Judicial District of Tennessee. It is your jobs to uphold the law, not make a second set of rules to suppress and oppress the law. This is basically theft under the color of the law and I have reported many to the Ben Crump Group. Since each of you want to suppress the people for the sake of "Power is Money" is over. Many will be prosecuted.
Does anyone know what's being built next to the Burgerking in front of Goodwill?
Dear neighbors and friends, As many of you have seen, we are battling a high density proposed subdivision in Cedar Hill, TN. There is no development of this size in our area. The closest is in Springfield city limits. The proposed rezoning has been through planning and zoning twice. The first time it was voted down unanimously, the second time it failed to even get a second. Now the developers are taking their case directly to the county commission and we need your help. If this can occur in a small rural community like Cedar Hill and in violation with the 2040 Robertson County Comprehensive Growth Plan, then this can occur anywhere in our county. In my opinion, passing a rezoning or development that has not been approved by the Zoning Commission, sets a dangerous precedence that will allow developers to bypass the zoning commission regularly. We’ve seen the growth all around our county. We’ve seen the proliferation of urban sprawl jump from cities to now rural communities. Our community is not against growth, we’ve repeatedly said that our community will back R40, which could be one house per acre on 115 acres. At this moment, the developers refuse to build anything other than R20. They have not presented the county with a preliminary plat with the houses or lots on it, so an R20 rezoning without this information could be 149 homes as stated or it could be 300 homes. The fight for Responsible Growth and adherence to the 2040 Growth Plan is in progress and we need all of our neighbors in every community to join us and contact your local commissioner and ask for them show their support for Responsible Growth in Robertson County by voting no on the proposed high density subdivision in Cedar Hill. This development will be more dense and intense than the city itself. The wrong decision on this matter will forever change the image of Cedar Hill from a rural community to another suburb expansion zone where it will continue to leach out. The developers already have a large acreage of land they've procured on the other side of the street that we feel may be the next high density subdivision if this one is approved. The moto for Robertson County is Minutes from Nashville and Miles from Ordinary. We’re asking that you show support to this motto and not where we’re headed, which is Another Suburb and Nothing Extraordinary. As we near our elections where we’ll be choosing the folks who represent us and our county, we ask that you contact your local commissioner and ask them to support Responsible Growth for our county by voting no to the proposed high density subdivision rezoning in Cedar Hill. We would greatly appreciate your support and help and pray that the battle in Cedar Hill will be the catalyst for responsible growth in Robertson County where growth can be achieved and the rural and agrarian landscape and heritage of our county can be preserved by adhering to our county’s adopted growth plan. If you have a minute to share this with friends, family and your neighbors, we'd be very appreciative of your time as well.
