concerning the thread on the BHS teacher and everyone wanting her name. There seems to be alot of questions on the street as to how the Guard determines who's name they use and who's name they don't. For example... brawl at us pizza was in the paper as a story but the name of the business was not listed. Was there ever ant pics of the SS country club burning? Numerous letters to the editor disregarded. guy goes 100 miles an hour through school zone and hits BR marine and it was never in the paper. I have read several articles in the Guard were they savagely attack people and embarrass them with pictures and names! Picture of guy taking a sobriety test when there is so many others that take one. Were is all the pictures of them? How come he was the lucky one? How come the secretaries pic wasn't posted? Some people we call out and draw attention to and some people we don't? Why is that Batesville Guard?

in a phone conversation I have with the assistant editor on the subject I was told the only reason no names were mentioned was because all charges so far have been dropped.

All very good questions. Small town politics at work. I have a child in the Batesville School District and am very concerned. My child is at a Magnet school right now. If the same "leaders" are at the Junior High and High School I will seriously consider transferring. As for the Guard, they will not run a negative story about the Batesville School District. I don't know why as a juicy story such as this would sell some papers.

Should not matter as she was still fired from a public school job. When the guy who used school equipment was fired his name was published many times. This is a sorry excuse by the Guard.

oh I agree completely. I wasn't agreeing with it at all just replying with what I was told. But seriously is it any surprise?

There were photos of the SS Country Club fire only it was after it was put out since the fire started in the early morning. The Guard withholds names and other information if it causes problems. What that means is if a scandal broke out about David Wyatt the Guard would not print the story until the AP (Associated Press) did a story. Remember in the editorial pages the David Wyatt columns had his name attributed to them but now they no longer do and as such if the information is incorrect it doesn't reflect on David Wyatt or the Guard. The interest of the Guard is not to upset anyone, especially people with money because they need advertisers. If your company runs an ad then your company will get more coverage. Thats why you see more Eagle Mountain Assisted Living photos than Rolling Hills or Wildwood. A more recent case of the lazy reporting or lack there of earlier this month there was supposed to be a circus come to the National Guard Armory, but it was cancelled. The Guard never asked questions to find out why it was or contact the Armory. So a couple days later when the Associated Press ran the story then the Guard printed it. Pat Jones plays kiss ass to elevate her ego and try to look important. It's a very sad situation when an organization such as the Batesville Guard proclaims to be a leader in the community but then shits all over the community. If they cared at all then they wouldn't be afraid to report on the issues, instead they wait until someone else does it and then pat themselves on the back for hard work of copy and paste.

Great point! I agree 100% with everything you said. It troubles me how the Guard has become a gossip rag and they pick and choose who to protect and who to humiliate. They have no regard for News.
