    Thank you for the kind words. I know everybody thinks I’m a “Jr.” but Daddy was Ray Lee and I’m Ray Hal.

    But, like old Cas use to say – any publicity is good publicity . . .

    Thanks again

    I knew that, why I stuck a Jr. on the end, I really don’t know. I fixed it.

    Congrats on the appointment, if you are anything like your Daddy and your Grand-father then thats enough said for your worth ethics. You will certainly earn your keep. Buckle down and for certain one name you will not see is mine in the files.

    The Knox County Commision is a joke! The people of this county overwhelmingly said they did not want Jenkins in a judicial role if I recall he finished a distant third. I am sure the “puppet masters” hands were all over this one as well. It’s time we tell the “uppet master” we are tired of him and his DA tactics
