    Save my prayer Aghast, there are others that need it far more than I do. It's not disdain, it's about taking personal responsibility for your actions and praying for the strength to do so. It's about stepping up, taking responsibility, helping someone out...and doing so by setting an example and not just "praying your way out of it." It amuses me how the slightest difference in religious belief is construed as shame, guilt, disdain, finger pointing, etc. Guess that's why most wars are fought over religion. The politics discussion fell off the rails here. At least we'll have 2 more years of moving forward and not the agendas, lawsuits, and slander.

    Shame on you, G. Hayes, for showing such disdain for prayer.

    Get a life. Good for Heath. You need prayer. I imagine Heath is praying for you and all of the other misguided citizens though you don't appreciate it. Be careful of the finger you point. Look down! Don't you see at least 3 of your own fingers pointing back at you. Get a life!!!

    People don't sue for no reason? Wow, I guess all lawsuits are justified then!! Laughable. The people are awake, this is why they're not voting for someone that is suing them, the taxpayers. As for prayer, Heath tried that idea when she was on the council, and we took care of her in 2007! Whenever someone wants to run for office without their own personal agenda getting in the way...we the voters are ready to consider it!

    People don't sue for no reason. Why did the citizen sue the town and town officials? Why is the town footing the entire bill when there is a personal lawsuit involved. Wake up, People!

    How could the mayoral race have been a landslide in Belhaven when only one-third of the votes cast were for the mayor's position? Thus, the incumbent only received about one-third of the total votes cast. Why would nearly one of the people voting not cast a vote for the mayoral candidate of their choice? Belhaven needs prayer right now!!! Laughing 2, you are in need of serious counseling. Please dial 911 immediately and ask for assistance as you are a danger to yourself.

    Belhaven politics are always amusing. At least the outcome was just. Not sure how Fisher expected to win when she was suing the town and spreading viscous rumors at the same time. This isn't the first time the voters told them they're not interested!

    Ellen Allens group of losers has kept their record intact, a perfect o-4! Even with an Obama look a like Mayorial candidate they fall again in embarrassing fashion. Please get a life, preferably somewhere else.

    The Ellen Allen crowd loses again in Belhaven!! I am sooo disappointed, and I mean that from the bottom of my sarcastic heart!!!

    Not happy! Change is needed in Simpson and Boyd needed to go...yes, something does smell fishy for sure, as usual with him involved!!!
