• The fact that both sides are attacking The Advocate proves one thing: you must be doing a heck of a job!

  • Luminary,

    We'll watch out for the zealots, vigilantes, demons and mad dogs. Every source has an agenda. That doesn't mean their concerns shouldn't be heard and investigated. That's what a newspaper does.


    I hear you about voting them all out of office. I might have voted with you last night when Gabe called me, but that seems a bit rash upon reflection. In my experience, most locally elected officials are good people. The exceptions shouldn't overshadow the rule.


    Good advice to try to stay about the fray. We'll keep trying.

  • I agree, vote them ALL out: sheriff, city council, mayor, DA <<<<< once again, VOTE THEM ALL OUT.

  • I'm afraid you guys had this coming when you took ANY side in this fiasco. Editorials, when labeled as such, should beĀ  welcome by the public. But the declaration that the DA was wrong minded in the indictment of City officials has drawn a line in the sand. Again, the newspaper has a role in the community. I suppose your past and future reporting will determine that role.
    Interesting that both sides seem to think the VicAd are against them and contributing to the opposing side. Could it be that both sides are overly defensive? Again, understandable given the nature of various charges, and the size of our community.
    Unfortunately, the false accusations and "behind closed door meetings" are only adding to the general publics confusion. And in turn, our paranoia.
    One conclusion? SEND THE WHOLE BUNCH BACK HOME AT ELECTION TIME!!!. My God, third graders would exhibit more common sense and self control than our "leaders".
    Chris, I can understand how it would be horribly difficult to be objective when hit the "hang-ups" and "late night" phone calls from both sides. Try to stay above the fray.
