    Van Alstyne has gone through so much turmoil the past several years. Will it ever stop? Personally we are getting tired to hearing all the bad news from VA.

    Thank goodness he got rid of the last Police Chief. For that kind of act, it sometimes takes a stranger passing thru. Godspeed! Next?

    At least he managed to do the Mayor's bidding and fire a perfectly good Police Chief who cared for the city and had the respect of the officers before he quit. In case you cant tell, there is some sarcasm there....

    Another job jumper. People you only hire someone who's actually interested in your city from within your city!
