She has been at the Standard since 1998, starting as a reporter/photographer. She mentions leaving for college in 1992, so she is late 30's in age.

An organization is only as good as its members.

The local paper has been in a gradual decline from the first day Lisa Tolliver set foot in that building as editor. It is now nonreversable, even the gal with the boys name can 't put the Standard back together again.

I wonder if Lisa is one of the reasons none of the reporters ever stays.

Who cares reading about her niece, her family feud. Real news there! Yea thats worthy of 50 cents a copy.

Good bye Lisa, you've done your damage here.

She is actually pretty smart for getting out before the newspaper industry hits rock bottom. She even chose to go work for the government, that's even smarter. You know the government isn't going anywhere.

Hail! I am Joe O'Bryan, Election Officer Sheriff for the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

Lisa Tolliver is leaving outta' Bardstown on a fast train...probably because of ME.

Please feel free to read my "Good-Bye" sendoff comments, here, as they can be read and have been posted directly below her Swan-song exit essay, in the ONLINE version of the KY Standard...


They say yer' leavin' me.'m I 'sposed to make it, wit' outchu'? You were sorta' my hill-billy boy's writin' muse...muh' inspiration!

[I think I luv' you]

Sometimes I thought aboutchu'...when I wuz' all alone.

The way you used to squat and pee, all over a Kentucky Election Officer's Sworn written testimony...pissing on the fire in my words, and blocking them from reaching the public. I confess.[Blush! What a boner, folks!] You make me so proud...I do believe I'm gonna' haff' ta' get muhself bronzed...Kentucky's only [known] censored election officer!

Sometimes, I just wanted to reveal, so's the whole world could see...I wuz' gettin' it...and gettin' it good....straight from you...all over me.

Girl, you have been...such a 'turn-on'!

Where'm I ever gonna' find another Small Town Sexy Censoring Editor, with such a beautiful face...on such an amazingly empty head...such as yer' self?

Sweetheart. You may not be unique...'cause Jamie Sizemore, KY Standard Publisher, and President of The Kentucky Press Association, has been at least as stoopid, and even more guilty than you are...but...I just think you're phenomenal.

I mean. As 'That Man In Time' I know. You weren't sent to me, by Fate, in the form of just 'regular' dumb...'cause 'dat don't turn me on.


Fate didn't just make you even...extree-speshul' Kentucky dumb...'cause Fate knows. That'd only be gettin' my attention.

Naw, Baby doll, I DO believe you must've been sent to me...fresh from the Heavens as...Divinely Dumb.

And I'm a former Altarboy...On a mission from God and to my Country. I think you understand...I jes' cain't hep' it.

I could sure use a girl like you and I'm gettin' off on all of it.

[sniff, sniff]

Please darlin' please. Tell me that you feel the crush I have on you...and promise me that you'll take me 'witchu...where ever you may go.

[insert insanely maniacal laughter here!]

I thought PLG and the KY Standard were "boots on the ground coverage". Sounds like in Lisa's case it's "boots in the air coverage". Lol

I dunno', Fhyllis.

It's pretty much what it says on my [delivered:past tense] Official Election Officer's Sheriff's Report.

You'll be readin' all about it...once I get the State-wide Media Blackout recognized and resolved.

'Bout hurt my feelins'. People been kickin' me in the teeth. Stompin' on my writin' fingers. Got der' daggone nasty Gnat-see commie boot down upon my neck.

Seemed like a good time, at the time, to let 'em know who they were dickin' wit', so I pulled muhself up wit' my writin' stick and pulled a full John Wayne on 'em.

Said,'Let's Duke it out'!

Put the o' Joe Dimaggio on 'em. May have knocked one outta' the ballpark. Cain't say it ain't so...don't come up in here askin' again.

Put my size 13 BillyJack [writing] boot [write] upside they silly heads...and told 'em ahead o' time that thar' warn't a danged thing these corrupt fools could do, about any of it.

They was all spell-bound. I'm a VERY effective writer, and as such...pretty much...they wuz' totally helpless as they watched me do it.

I say I say. I'm so good. I may hafta' get muhself bronzed...Kentucky's ONLY censored election officer.

Hey! Did you know?

That document is so sacred, that I have to fill it out...git' it delivered...signed and dated...even if it's blank!

So you just know, when I used it...for the first sad time in American History to cite a newspaper for political censorship...there was bound to be a ruckus.

Same kinda' stuff that goes on over in Red China and Afghanistan...happenin' right here in hill-billy Kentucky!

Fortunately. I was watchin' over my failing Democracy and wuz' able to nip that chit, in the bud...'cause I'm watcha' might call...a VERY effective writer.
