[snip] Cook assured Clay County residents they will be safe.

    Late last week, Illinois Circuit Court Judge Michael McHaney of Clay County ruled in a lawsuit that “all citizens of Illinois” are free from Governor J.B. Pritzker‘s tyrannical orders. This comes after arguably unethical tactics by the Illinois Attorney General to delay the case by trying to remove it to federal court, and the United States Department of Justice filing a Statement of Interest in the case in support of the lawsuit.

    GREEN COVE SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) — A Florida sheriff says he will deputize every gun owner in his county to put down any violent protests his deputies can’t handle alone. Clay County Sheriff Darryl Daniels gave no indication in a three-minute video released Wednesday that any demonstrations are planned in his suburban Jacksonville county. Daniels also said he would protect any peaceful protests, but added that if anyone starts “tearing up Clay County, that is not going to be acceptable.”

    It’s a decision the governor said will endanger Illinoisans — and open the door for others to file suit. Pritzker was made aware of the Clay County Circuit Court ruling Monday afternoon during his live COVID-19 briefing. “Rep. Darren Bailey’s decision to take to the courts to try and dismantle public health directives designed to keep people safe is an insult to all Illinoisans that have been lost during this COVID-19 crisis, and it’s a danger to millions of people who may get ill because of his recklessness,” Pritzker said. “At best, no one is better off because of this...

    Construction of two of the three sections of the multi-lane First Coast Expressway running through Clay County and neighboring Northeast Florida communities is behind schedule, according to Florida Department of Transportation officials, who cited a variety of factors for the delays.

When completed, the expressway will span 46.5 miles. It be a connecting road outside of the existing Interstate 295 Loop between Interstate...

  • Vote for Garland Hogshed!

    04/14/2006 6:14:10 PM PDT · by Congressman Billybob · 15 replies · 636+ views
    Today I saw several signs urging me to vote for Garland Hogshed. Now, I don’t know Mr. Garland from Adam’s cat. Not whether he is a Republican, Democrat, liberal, conservative, incumbent or challenger. I only know he’s running for Commissioner in Clay County, North Carolina. But he has a sturdy Southern name which belongs on a local official hereabouts. That brings us to the subjects of this column, local officials and early primaries. Unlike most states, North Carolina has a very early primary, May 2nd. Why is this? Many times I’ve read the bromide that “America has two major parties,...

    The Clay County Commission voted unanimously before an audience of nearly 200 to leave a plaque of the Ten Commandments on the wall of its chamber. The plaque is one of several historical documents -- which include the Bill of Rights -- that are on display, said Commissioner Jimmy Sams. The display has been up for several years. The Commandments went up first and were followed a couple of weeks later by the other documents. "I knew the ACLU would say something, and we just didn't want that to happen," Sams said Wednesday. "But it happened anyway." County resident Jesse...

    North Texas DA boasts perfect record on felony cases Legal eagle-eye on the ball 12/14/2002 Associated Press MONTAGUE, Texas - Tim Cole's first case as a young assistant district attorney wasn't exactly front-page material. Even the result of that Wise County tractor theft case - a conviction and an unusually harsh 45-year prison sentence - probably didn't raise many eyebrows in the legal community. As it turns out, it should have. Since that 1991 conviction, the three-term district attorney for rural Montague, Clay and Archer counties has never lost a murder trial. In fact, he has won all of...
