Sunset on the Delta

Dear Scoop Readers and Contributors,

Sorry about the long absence, but I have finally gotten settled in my new home... in Savannah, GA. It has been quite an ordeal... finally selling my family home, and most of my possessions to seek "greener" pastures in my latter years.

Greenville will always be my home, but it has changed... and unfortunately not for the better. I am near retirement and will be doing consultant work in a local hospital. Savannah is breathtaking and reminds me in some ways of the quaint "old" Greenville that I knew as a child.

I leave behind many good friends, co-workers and no doubt many enemies who have disagreed with my "opinions" over the last 7 years. The important thing to remember is that they were "opinions"... things that we all have, but rarely get to share in a public forum. The "Delta Scoop" has truly been an enjoyable outlet and forum for me to host... but it is time for me to step down as blog master.
I wish nothing but the best for Greenville and its residents. I hope someone will continue this forum, perhaps under a new name with "new" ideas to stimulate conversations.

I can honestly tell you that hosting a blog is not difficult with today's technology and Google. I have genuinely enjoyed hosting the "Scoop" and believe that WE have contributed to the betterment of
Greenville... through our opinions, criticisms and recommendations, needed changes came about. Our voices were heard!

I have always been loyal to the complete
anonymity of myself and all contributors. It is not important who said what. It is important to simply let your voice be heard! I will not take down the "Delta Scoop" for those who enjoy the comments section. Hopefully, someone will come up with a new blog, but until then, you can continue to post your comments here on the Scoop. I wish you all peace and prosperity in the future. I will never forget my home town.

I am not good at good-byes, so I leave you with this quotation from former President Carter at his farewell address to the nation:

"We live in a time of transition, an uneasy era which is likely to endure for the rest of this century. During this period we may be tempted to abandon some of the time-honored principles and commitments which have been proven during the difficult times of past generations. We must never yield to this temptation. Our American values are not luxuries, but necessities – not the salt in our bread, but the bread itself."

Forever,

Forthright

I think Greenville needs a few more Fred Sheds set up around town. You can get hot tamales, catfish, many sno cones, hub caps, some bags and thangs , bbq, smoked sausage, etc. They come in various mexican colors, some even have a rock walkway with a small a/c hung out of a not so square hole.
Did i say we are looking more 3rd world here in Greenville everyday.
The nicest addition to Greenville which is the new McDonalds now has Hawaian Shaved Ice right across the road in a Fred Shed and you also go a few yards and get those fine cut ribeyes for 15 dollars.
With all of this going on would i ever think about voting for a existing council member for Mayor ?
Hell No !
No excuse for putting this crap all over a once beautiful and proud city.

Why didnt the DDT show all the people running for mayor? It only shows the Democrats.
I hate to see this site shut down.
Cant someone start up a new one so we can continue our communication.
I dont have the time to mess with one. Someone should step up to the plate!!

Right! This is our only chance to be heard. There must be someone retired who has the time. I hate to lose the Scoop. I have learned more truth from this site than in 20 years of reading the DDT. I wish Forthright the best in his retirement and for getting out of Greenville. I wish I could leave but I can not leave my grandchildren.

I would be glad to host the site but have no idea how to set it up. If anyone knows any ideas please post it on here and I will research and try to get one going. I also have learned a lot from here since I moved to Greenville. I would like to have a positive site where people could not only post their ideas, but actually get action from them. We can turn this into more than forthright has let it become.

That is because it is a Democratic Primary. General election is later, November I think.

Don't worry forthright soon we will all be moving from this hell hole. Those of us left will have to move if G'ville stays on the same path it is headed down now. Sometimes it takes just one family member to move to get the ball rolling. In my case I think I will show the rest of my family the way to move and they will soon follow. Even if it takes every nickel I have somehow I will get my grankids away from here so they can have ample opportunities to grow somewhere else. See you on the other side of prosperity....

Our president Obama wants to raise the debt limit so he can continue to go on extravagant vacations and spend our money like it s his own. Not only does he go supposedly for business but takes all his entourage. But heres a quote he said about raising the debt before he was voted to become president by stupid people who just wanted to say they voted for the first black man in history. Now heres the quote Obama said about raising the debt limit:

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government can not pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”



-- Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006


But now that he s president it s ok to raise the debt limit. HE S A LIAR and always will be....

G'ville needs to have just a panel not a mayor to run this small of a community. ELECT MAYBE 7 PEOPLE TO SIT ON A BOARD TO WORK FOR THE CITIZENS. That way when an issue is put to a vote no one is able to stack the deck in favor of anyone. If a council member gets out of line the citizens can vote them out at replace them at anytime. It is working all over the country by doing this and the council members know if they don't do the right thing they can be removed at anytime. Kinda like being fired at your job by not doing your job. Hey it keeps them in line just like being fired from your job keeps you in line.

She knows she doesn't need or want the whites vote or friendships. There is not enough of the whites to help her in her quest to destroy this city before she leaves. WE, THE BLACKS WILL SHOW HER A GOODTIME AT THE PARTY AND MAYBE POP A FEW CAPS IN SOMEONES ASS WHILE WE ARE AT IT. YOU KNOW WE BLACKS CAN'T PARTY TOGETHER WITHOUT SHOOTING SOMETHING OR SOMEBODY.

I was leaving Kroger on Hwy 82 East today and a lady walk toward me and ask me if I was from greenville. Yes ma'am I am. She pointed to this round metal tag on her blouse and ask if I knew this man. Yes ma'am I do. Would you vote for him? No ma'am, never. She said thank you and got in her car. I felt bad about my abrupt answer, but not about the way I feel. As she was getting in her car, I told her that I apologize if I came off real negative, but I know who the person is (hopefully not her son). He has 8 years on the council and has not made a difference. Please ma'am vote all elected officials out of office.

Greenville – The former home of Greenville Mayor Heather McTeer was in foreclosure, according to a trustee’s notice of sale that appeared in the Tuesday edition of the DDT.

Since the legal notice, McTeer said she made a deal and stopped the foreclosure. The deed lists the owners as Mcteer and her ex-husband, Abe Hudson, for the 1976 McClain St. property. The mayor no longer lives at the house and has since moved

He is in bankruptcy as I hear!!!! The home from the outside looks horrible. Is this the 1st legal notice? Looking for a deal in this town, lowball it for $50,000. Another 75,000 to clean it up and u have a deal.

We need to have a police state around GWHS. Why open a new prison in Washington County? Use those guards @ GWHS. It may look bad to do such a thing but in the long run it may reduce crime at the school by 10%. I hope our mayoral candidates will address this issue. The Gville Supt. was playing dodgeball on the issue today. Replay his "always going to be some problems we can't control". Maybe that's why the community comes together against a white school board.

I tend to think MLK's movement shaped American ideals in general. His message awaken deeply rooted democratic principles in most people. He is one of the most influential Americans (not blacks) in history period. It doesn't have anything to do with rap music, bling bling or crime. I completely disagree with the racist imbecile that claimed that the MLK memorial did not belong in the National Mall along with the other ones. Is he also going to say that Jefferson doesn't belong there because he had a love child with a slave?

Anonymous said...

10:23 I think you missed the point. They didn't say MLK ideals and principles weren't good. They were saying that the blacks today don't get it or don't care to listen to what MLK stood for. The blacks today haven't got a clue what he did to change their lives and are worse than their ancestors ever thought of being.

From Sunday's 07 Sept. 2008 11:48:04 EST, Televised "Meet the Press" THE THEN Senator Obama was asked about his stance on the American Flag.


General Bill Ginn' USAF (ret.) asked Obama to explain WHY he doesn't follow protocol when the National Anthem is played.


The General stated to Obama that according to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171...


During rendition of the national anthem, when the flag is displayed, all present (except those in uniform) are expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. Or, at the very least, "Stand and Face It".


NOW GET THIS !!


'Senator'Obama replied:


"As I've said about the flag pin, I don't want to be perceived as taking sides".. "There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression.." "The anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all that sort of thing."


(ARE YOU READY FOR THIS???)


Obama continued: "The National Anthem should be 'swapped' for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song 'I'd Like To Teach the World To Sing'. If that were our anthem, then, I might salute it. In my opinion, we should consider reinventing our National Anthem as well as 'redesign' our Flag to better offer our enemies hope andlove.It's my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren. If we, as a Nation of waring people, conduct ourselves like the nations of Islam, where peace prevails - - - perhaps astate or period of mutual accord could exist between our governments ......"

When I become President, I will seek a pact of agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity, and a freedom from disquieting oppressive thoughts. We as a Nation, have placed upon the nations ofIslam, an unfair injustice which is WHY my wife disrespects the Flag and she and I have attended several flag burning ceremonies in the past".


"Of course now, I have found myself about to become the President of the United States and I have put my hatred aside. I will use my power to bring CHANGE to this Nation, and offer the people a new path..My wife and I look forward to becoming our Country's First black Family. Indeed, CHANGE is about to overwhelm the United States of America "


WHAAAAAAAT, the Hell is that???


Yes, you read it right.


I, for one, am speechless!!!

Those of you that voted for change here is a little change for you. You dumb asses.


The overall poverty rate climbed to 15.1 percent, from 14.3 percent the previous year, and the rate from 2007-2010 rose faster than for any similar period since the early 1980s when a crippling energy crisis amid government cutbacks contributed to inflation, spiraling interest rates and unemployment. For last year, the official poverty level was an annual income of $22,314 for a family of four.

Measured by total numbers, the 46 million now living in poverty are the most on record dating back to when the census began to track in 1959. The 15.1 percent tied the level of 1993 and was the highest since 1983.

Broken down by state, Mississippi had the highest share of poor people, at 22.7 percent, according to calculations by the Census Bureau. It was followed by Louisiana, the District of Columbia, Georgia, New Mexico and Arizona. On the other end of the scale, New Hampshire had the lowest share, at 6.6 percent.

The share of Americans without health coverage rose from 16.1 percent to 16.3 percent — or 49.9 million people — according to Census Bureau revisions. The increase was due mostly to continued losses of employer-provided health insurance in the weakened economy.

Don't be stupid the next election.

Obama is aiming for Socialism. Ideally in a socialistic society everyone must work and contribute.
On paper it sounds good but with our current society the mentality of "entitlement" would literally destroy it. Too many people that don't want to work or contribute.

Dear President Obama:

You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike
Any of the others, you truly scare me.

You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you.

You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive
Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no
Visible signs of support.

You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth
Growing up in America and culturally you are not an American.

You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.

You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus
Don't understand it at its core.

You scare me because you lack humility and 'class', always blaming others.

You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned
Yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to
Publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail..

You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the 'blame America '
Crowd and deliver this message abroad.

You scare me because you want to change America to a European style
Country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.

You scare me because you want to replace our health care system
With a government controlled one.

You scare me because you prefer 'wind mills' to responsibly
Capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.

You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose
That lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of
Living in the world.

You scare me because you have begun to use 'extortion' tactics
Against certain banks and corporations.

You scare me because your own political party shrinks from
Challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals.

You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider
Opposing points of view from intelligent people.

You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both
Omnipotent and omniscient.

You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything
You do.

You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the
Limbaugh's, Hannitys, O'Reillys and Becks who offer opposing,
Conservative points of view.

You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.

Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will
Probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.

Lou Pritchett sent this to the NY Times but they never acknowledged it.
Big surprise. Since it hit the Internet, however, it has had over
500,000 hits. Keep it going. All that is necessary for evil to succeed is for
good men to do nothing.. It's happening right now.

Put me in charge of food stamps. I'd get rid of food stamps for Ding Dongs or Ho Ho's, just money for 50-pound bags of rice and beans, blocks of cheese and all the powdered milk you can haul away. If you want steak and frozen pizza, then get a job.





Put me in charge of Medicaid. The first thing I'd do is to test recipients for drugs, alcohol, and nicotine and document all tattoos and piercings. If you want to use drugs, alcohol, smoke or get tats and piercings, then get a job.





Put me in charge of government housing. Ever live in a military barracks? You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair. Your "home" will be subject to inspections anytime and possessions will be inventoried. If you want a plasma TV or Xbox 360, then get a job and your own place.





In addition, you will either present a check stub from a job each week or you will report to a "government" job. It may be cleaning the roadways of trash, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we find for you. We will sell your 22 inch rims and low profile tires and your blasting stereo and speakers and put that money toward the “common good..”





Before you write that I've violated someone's rights, realize that all of the above is voluntary. If you want our money, accept our rules.. Before you say that this would be "demeaning" and ruin their "self esteem," consider that it wasn't that long ago that taking someone else's money for doing absolutely nothing was demeaning and lowered self esteem.





If we are expected to pay for other people's mistakes we should at least attempt to make them learn from their bad choices. The current system rewards them for continuing to make bad choices.





AND While you are on Gov’t subsistence, you no longer can VOTE! Yes that is correct. For you to vote would be a conflict of interest. You will voluntarily remove yourself from voting while you are receiving a Gov’t welfare check. If you want to vote, then get a job.

This G'ville site is done it looks like. The people here in G'ville can't even keep a good site going due to being so one track minded and stupid. No wonder we can't get new industry here. We are to stupid to know how to attract anyone other than a chicken shack to fry us up something to keep us the most obese state. We can't keep anything like a blog going cause some don't like to here the truth about our one horse town. If it's so great here then why do we all go to jackson or memphis to shop or see a doctor? If thats the case it can't be that damn good here. G'ville has turned into a ATM machine for the Gov't programs run by the crooks that run in here and get rich off or the poor and elderly then flee before they get caught. Thats why it's such a turnover in doctors and such. We are so stupid some of us just can't get thats whats going on.

wikipedia regarding Greenville

Crime

It should be considered of utmost importance that anyone considering visiting Greenville realize that the town is notorious for its bad crime, often considered to be among of the worst in the country. The downtown area in particular and much of the town north of Highway 82 (this highway often seen as a sort of "dividing line" by many) is continuously ridden with theft, assault, and much more, sometimes even in daylight and in popular areas such as near the library or churches. If one must go into more dangerous parts of Greenville, it is still better to do so in the day, and to be accompanied with other people; it is less dangerous for a female to go along with males. The most that can be done to protect oneself is to use the most common sense as possible, such as always locking one's car and never leaving valuable items inside, staying away from dark and deserted areas and not taking dangerous routes when it isn't necessary, and not drawing too much attention to oneself (i.e., wearing expensive jewelry or females wearing too revealing of clothes). While police have made some attempts to monitor and patrol downtown Greenville more, many residents complain that the town's police force is still highly ineffective. Much of south Greenville - for example, along Highway 1 South near the Nelco Movie Theater and Country Club, South Main Street near the Bowmanor Subdivision and Bayou Road, and the area surrounding Cypress Road - is considered to be generally safe and inhabited by middle- to upper-class families, although some crime occasionally drifts into these areas as well.

[edit] Racism

It should also be noted that Greenville is a town of ever-present and prominent racial discord, despite moderate progress since the 1950's. Many older, more upper-class whites (a small yet powerful minority) in particular still harbor views of varying degrees of racism, although this phenomenon is significantly less common in most middle-aged or younger whites (yet still very pronounced in others). Socializing and mixing with blacks too much could possibly be discouraged by some middle-aged white parents today, though it would have been a lot more common a few decades ago. Conversely, some blacks (whose race accounts for about 70% of the town's population) hold to what is commonly referred to as "reverse racism;" for example, it is often hard for a white teenager to find a job in local fast food or retail establishments where the management and all the employees are black. A visiting black man could possibly be looked down on by a white man, and vice versa. Both races often tend to form their own areas in the town, with a few middle-class areas being more or less mixed.

Most of the crystal meth is produced south of Bowman Avenue. Ownership and management of fast food in this town is controlled by whites. I'm not talking about ur tamale & hot wing shacks either. Buyers of the above products are north of 82. But who is making the money?

As a long time resident of G'ville, I know how G'ville was and how it is today. In 1969 G'ville was named QUEEN CITY of the delta and industry was booming. In 1969 there were 87 industries in G'ville. Now today there are only 5 or 6. G'ville had two malls at one time and the population was around 60,000 people in the city limits. Now G'ville is mostly black and number one in poverty nationwide. I'll tell you why it has become this way. PRIVATE SCHOOLS brought all this on.There was no way the majority of the whites could afford to send their kids to private school making just above minimum wage. Therefore soon they had to move to places so their kids to go to public schools. This caused the working tax base on this town to dwindle to nearly nothing. When a town loses half of its population and most of its tax base then the town is doomed. Now with just only 30,000 people and half of those don't own a house or property then that makes the tax base even worse. So you wonder why our roads have gone to hell along with this town, not a CITY ANYMORE,. wHEN MAYBE 15,000 ARE TAKING CARE OF 30,000 THE MATH JUST DOESN'T WORK.......

62% OF THEFT FROM WALMART IS COMMITED BY NON-BLACKS IS A LIE!!!!
I being an ASSISTANT MANAGER FOR THE LAST 5 YEARS KNOW EXACTLY WHO'S COMMITING THE THEFT. IT's blacks stealing us blind and the other blacks looking the other way when they are doing it. We catch them everyday working as teams at the checkout counter. Or it happens while unloading the trucks on the back dock. Merchandise dissapears before it even hits the floor inside the store.

Anonymous said...

I didn't know that. 62% of the employees @ Walmart are stealing. As an assistant manager you need firing. The black employees only make up 57% of total employees. Management like you makes up 78%, so who is stealing?

Private schools saved what we have left. Would I send a child to a public school in Greenville for a top of the line education? Really???? Just tell me how my child today in Greenville would get a top notch education. They couldn't 20 years ago...Nothing has changed about education. If you can't control and teach your own then leave mine alone.

Anonymous said...

11:24 Are you a dumbass that can't read. I didn't say that 62%of the employees are stealing. I said that 62% of the stealing by whites is a LIE. Most of the stealing is done by blacks being helped by some employees helping them steal by looking the other way or even in helping them steal by not checking them out at the counter by not scanning items they have in their shopping carts. I am a black man and have worked in several walmart stores all over the south and G'ville has been the worse I have ever seen when it comes to merchandise dissapearing from the store straight off the dock. 95% of the employees are black here in walmart. So you tell me that our cameras lie about what I see happening.....The cameras don't lie. You need to get the right figures for the G'ville store before you TELL MORE LIES.....

Cause all of us blacks have a handicap permit because we deserve it for being held back from the white man for so long.

This is a public announcement from the MS. HIGHWAY PATROL: A law has been passed that many are not aware of. It says that a vehicle is not to ride in the left lane except to pass another vehicle. Once it has passed the slower vehicle it must move back into the right hand lane or it will be issued a ticket for driving in left lane. You have been warned so stay out of the left lane unless you are passing!
