i wouldn't pay a nickel for advocate. they print story's thats not true. garbage. i sure wouldn't depend on the advocate for information. i don't spend one dollar in the big city of barbourville i go to corbin or middlesboro.
i do buy it, but EVERYTHING you have said is correct. There has been many mistakes made in their stories and unfair opinions given. As far as sports go, the sports editor needs to go. Get one that attends all games and all sports. The sports section should be huge. We may not have "the big league kids " here, but they are Knox Counties future and someone's kids! Even educational events are skimming barely getting in. Thieves and rapists, etc.. Get more attention than anything!

There might be mistakes, but let's not get into that area on Topix, shall we? What have they printed that is entirely not true? Please, name one article and source it. You can't. I'm not asking for your opinions, just the facts that you seem to readily have available.

Please, tell me how one sports writer can attend "all games and all sports"? Do you understand how ridiculous that is? Their sports section is the best it's been in years, but the anonymity of Topix let's you people who don't have a clue get on here and have something to rant about.

And they have a Very Small staff that have to do everything from interviewing people, going through court documents, taking photos, writing the actual articles and delivering the papers to the distribution sites around the area... I have seen the same reporter do a interview and take photos for the article, go into the office and write it and in the afternoon drive around filling the paper boxes and dropping papers at the stores... It's a Tiny Paper with a small circulation and a handful of dedicated very hard working people putting it together so we actually have a Home Town Newspaper in the first place and they make Very Little money doing so...

I think the Staff and Publishers of the Advocate should be applauded for keeping a Barbourville Paper alive through hard times as it has been a Barbourville Landmark for over a 100 years and the loss of such a Treasure as a Local Paper would further send the community in a downward spiral.....

If You want to make the Paper Better get involved instead of complaining... Write your own articles and submit them to the paper... Go to the Sports Event and write about the game.... If you have a point of view write it up and send it to them... I have had 6 articles published in the paper over the years and I can say if you have something interesting to say they will publish it... But to expect a couple of reporters to cover ever story every single person thinks they should is an impossible task... The Advocate can never be More than what the community makes it...

Good idea, maybe after we write it we can deliver it too. Oh and dont forget the 75 cents you can pay just to see what you wrote.

75 cents... Let's see ya know I can't actually think of anything I can buy for 75 cents other than the paper... Oh wait..Yes I can... Air... Air down at the station is 75 cents... And a small bottle of water is about 75 cents... Even a Slim Jim is a buck and a quarter... Talk about a petty argument... A Blank Roll of Kraft Paper of about the same amount as the Advocate is $2.25 at WalMart...

I'm sorry Q but I will never agree with you concerning the Advocate. I can understand why you like them but I'm not trying to get an article published. I'm not telling anyone not to buy their paper but on the other hand I cant blame them if they dont.
The Advocate backed the Fiscal Court's decission to kill the jail;tracker when the Advocate didn't stand on the side of free speech and the Freedom of Information Act. These are principals the Newspaper business are founded on and are the reason Newspaper's even exist.

Now the Advocate is trying to capitalize on the Fiscal Court's decission by printing the photo's of the same people the Court is claiming to protect. I have to say it doesn't look right to me and it doesn't pass the smell test. You and the Advocate can claim people can still get the information and I agree. But everyone know's the people's right's have been limited by the Fiscal Court's decission.
