Re: “Sheriff Luttrell Changes Mind, Will Run for County Mayor

Mad Merc I think you need to go back to school and learn how to read, because I said that I was one of the first graduates from the "Citizen Academy's " class. You sound like to me to be of the "good ol red-neck idiots" . Sherriff Luttrell is one of the best Sheriff's that this county ever had, and its people like yourself that cannot see the good things that he has done for this community. Maybe you need to go to the jail and take a look around at all of the positives things that he has done for the inmates and the people who are hired to guard the jail. NOW IF IT WERE THE CHIEF OF POLICE FOR THE MEMPHIS POLICE DEPARTMENT THAT WAS RUNNING FOR SHELBY COUNTY MAYOR I BET YOU WOULD BE THE FIRST ONE TO STAND IN LINE AND CAST YOUR VOTE FOR THAT "GOOD-OL BOY " .

Re: “Sheriff Luttrell Changes Mind, Will Run for County Mayor

I am one of the first graduates from the first Citizen Academy, and I know first hand about how Sherriff Luttrell handles things concerning the jail and the problems facing Shelby County. If Mayor Wharton were still the mayor of Shelby County, that would have been okay with me also because I have the pleasure of meeting him also. I honestly think that Sherriff Luttrell will make a great mayor, and all of the people who think that he will not need to go to Memphis and live. Nobody asked them how they liked to have all of the crime that is plaquing this county, but he sure is trying to do all that he can to get this situation under control. So to you Sherriff Luttrell, I Gail Fouts will vote for you as mayor of Shelby County over any other person running for mayor. If there is someone who thinks that they can do a better job than he can needs to step up and run for mayor of Shelby County. You are entitle to your opinion, but until you see first hand how he handles things then please do not judge him as you have in the above comments. GO SHERRIFF LUTTRELL!!!!!

Re: “Was Calipari Worth Every Dollar . . . and More?

As far as I'm concern, there is nobody worth the money these people pay for the coaches, players, etc, when there is so much unemployment, people going hungry, single women who are working two jobs to make ends meet, senior citizens who are having to make the choice of whether they eat or pay their rent, utilities,put gas in their cars,whatever the normal citizen in this country does to make an honest living. You say,'Yes they should pay them this big salaries, but what happens when the people who come to these games cannot pay for the tickets, WHO DO YOU THINK WILL PAY THESE BIGWIG COACHES, PLAYERS, ETC.? It will not be the president of the school. It will be us JOHN OR JANE DOE CITIZENS who will have to pay these people their salaries with MORE TAX INCREASES OR MORE PROPERTY TAXES. What they should say to these coaches is this"Coach Cal you want to play coach of Kentucky or FOR U of M, then here is the deal. You be the coach, and for every game that you win, then we will pay you lets say $100.00 and if your lucky; and we get a FULL HOUSE then we will pay you $200.00. How many caoches do you think will be willing to be the coach if they put it to them that way? Not very many, but they want the schools or the people in the community to pay this ENOROMUS SALARY THAT THEY THINK THAT THEY ARE OWED OR DUE, but where do you think that we the people of this community will get the money to pay this salary? TAX INCREASES, NO AIR-CONDITION FOR THE KIDS GOING TO SCHOOL, NO PAY RAISES FOR THE POLICE, FIREFIGHTERS, SHERIFF DEPUTIES, DOCTORS, NURSES,TEACHERS, OR THE PARENTS WHO WILL BE PAYING FOR THE COLLEGE TUTION THAT THESE COACHES WILL BE COACHING AT.

No we need to take a stand and stop all of these players, coaches, etc. from getting salaries so big that the econimic communities who pay these salaries do not have to worry about paying their electric bill, house payment, rent, groceries, clothes, medical expenses, medicine, gas for their cars, and just the everyday neccessities that the average citizen has to pay on their minimum wage salaries. Take it from me, if they had to go to the mailbox and look in there and see a disconnect notice from MLGW, phone bill, your house payment is past due and you are facing foreclosure, no medical insurance because it either means you keep your job without medical insurance; or loose your job; what would you choose?, or your child comes up to you and ask you what is for dinner and there is nothing to eat because you do not have enough money to buy groceries, then they would understand why so many people think that they do not deserve these salaries. I am one of these people, and yes I have gone through all of the above mentioned items, and it urks me to think that they get paid $4.65 million dollars a year and all they do is yell, scream, cuss, throw hissy fits if they loose and blame everybody but themselves for them loosing the game. GROW UP AND LIVE LIKE MOST NORMAL PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY $7.50 an hour for 8 hours a day and live like most of us do pay check to pay check.
