Ragsdale documents

Readers might remember that a few days ago we published a report about abuse of taxpayer money in Mike Ragsdale's office. Several readers made note in correspondence with The World that they couldn't get through to the links we had posted-and we did have problems getting the links to this critical documentation available for mass consumption.

That issue has now been resolved. Here is the documentation of Mike Ragsdale and the Director of the Office of Neighborhoods overcharging the taxpayers for an unnecessary trip to Nashville.

Here are the documents relating to the Mayor's Bear Creek "retreat," the misuse of federal funds, and the over $1,300 shortfall currently being picked up by the taxpayers in Knox County.

Most importantly, you can now view the documents within the original story as it was written the morning The World broke it.

You rip off Lewis Cosby's work
and claim it as your own --
"Most importantly, you can now view the documents within the original story as it was written the morning The World broke it."--
and have the nerve to accuse anyone else of plaigiarism?

Jeebus, you're one puffed-up potentate here in your own little "World."

Coward who refuses to identify yourself;
I ripped off of no one, and I discredit no one, least of all the very courageous Lewis Cosby, who chooses to expose the misdeeds of certain public officials.

Our work is quite independent of one another, but I am more than willing to admit that he has done far more than I have-anyone Ragsdale calls a "showboat" needs a public commendation.

Lewis Cosby is a fine citizen but anon you have no idea what you are spouting. Sometimes stuff crosses paths without proper credit given due to a mistake. David had this info and sat on it for a few days because of an unrelated issue. So do not hide behind anonymity and expect to be taken seriously.

The documents relating to Ragsdale trips and expenses are public records/documents. Lewis Cosby is pleased, as he has indicted to me, when his volunteer work is circulated.
The important thing is for Citizen taxpayers to recognize where, and how, their tax dollars are being spent.
This should be a great consideration when your property taxes are raised again to pay for this abuse.
