Re: Gannett newspapers jounalists repremanded

I don't have a dog in this fight so I could care less about the watch guy but Old Scout has this one right when he said "I just love the way that the media has him tried, convicted and ready for execution when the police haven't even finished the investigation yet." What this post was orig...

Re: Gannett newspapers jounalists repremanded

What many in the news media forget is that personal opinions belong on the editorial page not expressed as "News." Gannett was attempting to show that they have some integrity as a company. Newspapermen(News Media of the Past) at one time were often seekers of the truth but that day has pa...

What is this Community Development Authority for anyway? "A CDA is an independent public body appointed by a mayor and common council that can be created by communities to carry out blight elimination, urban renewal programs or projects and housing developments." The whole thing smells of ...

Re: Campground in Bradley Park?

I think I heard on the radio that the Tomahawk's Park and Rec was holding a meeting to develop a business plan for camping at the park. Sounds like a done deal.

Re: Golden Eagles on the Jersey

Big birds. They've been there for at least three or four years. Their nest is not to far off the beaten path on the Flowage. I don't want to give the exact location in fear that someone may molest them. We see them every day along the River south of the dam. They often roost along the open water sou...

Yep, Plagiarized. If your unable to write your own stuff at least put quotations around the material you copy. Lemming.

An amazing thing happened on my trip to the post office this morning. Flagmen working the traffic on the new bridge.

Bridge

If that bridge is passable it should be opened if and when traffic is not interfering with the actual construction. I heard on the WJJQ that some people have crossed the bridge and the Police Department is now announcing that they will write $340 tickets to anyone caught crossing it. I think the res...
