Subject: Hello

Mr. Meck,

I finally found you again. I am originally from Geneva, AL and use to
listen to The Coach and The Meck every night when you were on the air. I
think it was 103.9. I had the honor of meeting you at the P-Nut Festival
one year and you took me to your van and gave me a T-Shirt. "It's Time to
Smell The Cornfields Baby" I will never forget it. I wore the shirt to
school and my buddies would always ask how did you get that shirt man? I
would always say I have connections.

I graduated in 1997 and joined the U.S. Air Force.
I was stationed in Oklahoma, Japan and currently in Ft.Walton Beach, FL.
Nothing like the south.

I was wounded on 2 March 2007 in Iraq by an IED and currently healing at
Walter Reed Hospital in Washington D.C.
I was looking through the internet and I found you and information on
your new show. I just wanted to share my story with you, so I decided to
email you.

I always respected you for what you believed in and how you
expressed yourself. I remembered a quote from you that went like this "
It's not how you start the game of life, but how you finish it. That is so
true. God has a plan for me and tells us in the bible that he will allow us
to prosper. I don't always understand why I got hurt, but I know god has a
plan for me and I look forward to seeing his new plan for me when I am out
of the hospital and back home in the South. Mr. Meck I want to Thank You
for a few minutes of your time and I look forward to downloading some of
your radio shows. Take care and God Bless.

Thanks,
Mark McDuffie

Please pray for our longtime listener and friend .. Mark McDuffie.
A Brave young man and soldier.
Mark .. Thanks for sharing and blessing our lives.

You may email Mark [ themeck@themeck.com] . We'll forward your thoughts to him.

THE MECK REPORT - Ventilation Ordered for Powell's Retaliation Jail Utility Closet


THE MECK REPORT

"The only thing in the middle of the road are yellow lines and dead animals."
"More scoop than Baskin Robbins."

Ventilation Ordered for Powell's Retaliation Jail Utility Closet
The Meck has learned that John Powell and the city have FINALLY decided to give Lt. Duane Herring ventilation for the Retaliation utility closet in the jail that he was moved to last Sept.

POWELL'S RETALIATION
Lt. Herring [almost 23 yrs in the Dothan PD] was retaliated against by John Powell - Chief of Police
because the local union [International Brotherhood of Police Officers]
voted to send a letter to Atty. Gen. Troy King asking the AG to investigate
Chief Powell for ticket fixing allegations. [ criminal activity]

Lt. Herring is Vice Pres. of the local IBPO.
Then union Pres Steve Hamm [under pressure from Powell] pointed the finger at Lt. Herring
as being the architect of the letter.
The letter was actually written by then union attorney Banks Smith.

Timeline: The AG's office confirmed receipt of the union letter in late Aug 06.
Mid September [Less than a month] Lt. Herring was moved by Powell to the Retaliation Jail Utility Closet.

Note: The city says they don't recognize the IBPO. The IBPO has thousands of members nationwide.
Just because you don't believe something exist .. does not eliminate its existence. [ Just ask Chester]
If you don't believe in gravity .. Try jumping. The law still exist.
You might not believe in a certain law or a noise ordinance .. but it still exist.
You might not believe you have an alcohol/drinking problem. That Denial confirms the problem/existence.

Denial is the prelude for ultimate problems.
Just like the city has today.

JOHN WHITE'S BIG CHILL
Chief John White Esquire exposed John Powell - Chief of Retaliation and his brilliant Deputy..
Larry 'Jethro Bo ' Draughon and drilled the city leadership with embarrassment and
shamed them in a 7 hour hearing/teaching session Monday pm.

Less than 12 hrs later .. Workers started measuring and have started drilling through the security wall in the Dothan City jail to give Lt. Duane Herring [what the Animal Shelter has] and he
hasn't had for the last seven months - Ventilation.

Since Chief John White Esquire put a chill on John Powell and the city leadership ..
[and left them on a ventilator]
The word is Lt. Herring might even by-pass a fan and get some AC in the Retaliation Jail Utility Closet.

The security wall at the jail is reinforced with concrete and steel.
How much will this cost the city to try and continue to cover-up the obvious retaliation by Powell ?

THE COVER-UP
It would be so easy for Powell and the city to admit their mistakes and move Lt Herring
from the Retaliation Utility Jail Closet .. into an humane environment where he can work without
jail inmates banging on the glass window screaming at him and Lt. Herring having to evacuate the
utility closet for 2 days because of pepper spray [ that was used on an inmate].

As we've all seen in life .. It's always the cover-up that you always pay the most for.
The retaliation and now the cover-up will probably cost the City of Dothan millions as the city leadership continues to back John Powell - Chief of Retaliation.

It will cost John Powell his job.
He should have already been fired by CM Mike West ..
but the CM has a hard time admitting he blew this hire - BIG TIME.

John Powell must be removed as Police Chief. Today.
He has destroyed our police dept and is ruining our city.
He is not qualified to be a Police Chief. [That's not exactly breaking news from Christopher Columbus.]

Thanks for forwading THE MECK REPORT to your friends ..
and helping shine light on this darkness in our hometown - Dothan.

WRITE ON.
