Good Morning Semmes: Everyone Can Help

Law enforcement agencies across the country have received a lot of negative press this year and just like most published news, the bad press far outweighs the positive. Negative press flavors the atmosphere our law enforcement personnel work in with a foul stench. Fortunately, yes fortunately, thousands upon thousands of ethical and conscientious law enforcement personnel contine to go to work every day in the stench. They are there for us. Facebook is loaded with questions and comments such as “Would You Come To The Aid Of Your Local Law Enforcement.”

The Committee Of Secret Correspondence

CITY OF SEMMES FIREFIGHTERS
IN NEED OF FRIENDS AND ALLIES
During the American Revolutionary period, freedom fighters knew they were going to need allies to help them gain their independence. They knew also there would be a need for secret communications between themselves and their allies. It was then that they created The Committee of Secret Correspondence in order to communicate with friends and allies alike. The Committee of Secret Correspondence used secret agents to gain intelligence, friends and allies to perform undercover operations and friends and allies published information in order to gain support. Semmes Fire Department personnel, although probably unknowlingly, have created a new modern version of The Committee Of Secret Correspondence.

Good Morning Semmes
Tuesday, August 9, 2016

Yesterday a parcel containing a variety of documents was received at Talk Of Semmes. Also, a hand delivered signed statement was placed in my hand. As eager as I am to get to the bottom of the rumors and allegations I wanted to publish them right away so the public could see them – but I hesitated. A little later in the day, I had a phone call from a person I had called earlier in the day asking for an interview. I was blasted with both barrels!

Is Mayor Judy Hale Reading Your Confidential Information?

Editor’s Note: The following is unsubstantiated. Although I do not question it’s authenticity, it is my personal opinion that Mayor Judy Hale has violated several laws if these allegations prove to be true. I have not had time to pursue these allegations – they are just rumors and gossip. But, whether gossip or rumor, they are widespread and come from those in a position to know. Some of the current and past employees of the City Of Semmes have come forward.

Good Morning Semmes: Monday, August 8, 2016

I am sure many perceive my actions as a campaign directed against city hall and it may very well turn in that direction, but for now, I am looking into all incumbents, all candidates and the rumors and gossip passed on to me. I love discovering the truth and let the chips fall as they may. I have been hired, in the past, to work for both defendent and plantiff. I was not hired to take sides but only to find what I could find. That’s what I do.

The Spirit of Jezebel

Good Morning Semmes,

An editoral and personal opinion of the author, Terry Platt. I am not an in-your-face Christian. It’s not that I am shy or timid, it’s just that I prefer to use a more subtle approach to sharing the good news. But, every once in a while I just have to take a more direct approach and offer interesting thoughts, ideas and articles with you. When I woke this morning I knew this was what I wanted to share:

 
30 Traits of the Jezebel Spirit
Jezebel is a spirit, but it finds access through uncrucified flesh.  Although the Jezebel spirit is described in the Bible as being a woman, it does not actually have a gender.
