County Employees Abusing Internet?

Computer security was the main topic of discussion at a mandatory meeting for all local elected officials and department heads, both state and county, at the Jefferson County Commissioners’ meeting, Tuesday.
Brad Eisenhauer, Jefferson County Information Technology officer, informed the commissioners at their board meeting two weeks ago that he was very concerned about internet usage, especially in the courthouse.
“The courthouse had maxed out their internet capacity,” Eisenhauer said.  “This means that there are a lot of personal  devices, cellphones and tablets that are hooking into the county internet.  People are also using YouTube and music sites such as Pandora which takes up even more bandwidth.”

Candlelight Vigil


October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Hope Crisis began the month with a Candlelight Vigil on the Courthouse lawn. Shaylene Smith, survivor, not only told her story but urged everyone there to pay special attention to the children to teach them the right way to handle anger and above all else, teach them self worth so they don’t experience what she went through as a young adult.
