How many times will County Commissioners Chairman Tony Gurley gavel Commission Stan Norwalk out of order today?
Gurley, a Republican, and Norwalk, a Democrat, have been going at each other since Norwalk was elected in 2008. For instance last month, Gurley accused Norwalk of using his diabetes as a political ploy to stall for more time so that Democrat Betty Lou Ward could be elected vice chairwoman.
Gurley said he and fellow Republican Commissioner Paul Coble even came up with a special "Stan Norwalk Quarter" last year when Democrat Harold Webb was chairman.
Gurley said that whenever Norwalk said something they felt was outrageous, both he and Coble would want to respond. But Gurley said Webb would only recognize one of them to speak after he and Coble both raised their hands.
As a result, Gurley said Coble would take out his quarter and flip with one of them calling heads or tails. The winner would raise his hand to be recognized by Webb.
