The Register-Herald declined to print that Beckley Police arrested one of their editors last week at their newsroom and charged him with the sale and transfer of narcotics.

Are we supposed to be surprised? When Frank Wood took over from Rob Hammond, it fell apart. We choose to take The Charleston Gazette now.

No, it won't appear there. I haven't posted on Topix for years, but this is one of the only forums for truth that exists in this community, and that's a sad statement.

I've heard it was the editor, Butch Antolini, but I'm not sure about that. I hate to speculate, but he was charged with possession while he was at The Dominion Post in Morgantown. Actually, I don't mind to speculate: if they would have held their own staff to the same standards they set for the rest of us, we'd know who it was.

It was a lower level employee not an editor. Still, you're right. They kept it out of the newspaper.

That newspaper only prints what it wants to. I stopped getting it yers ago when they told my husband that they didn't print any crime that was a misdemeanor or had been plea bargained down. Lo and behold, the very next day they printed several stories about people being arrested for a midemeanor, which included a misdemeanor arrest of Jack Whittaker. The newspaper also puts a story on the front page if it makes a certain cop look good, even when it is far from front page news.

so true, it won't be in the paper at all. If it does appear it will be in the wrong section or candy coated. If it were an ordinary citizen and made a certain cop look good, it wold be on the front page.

Think about all the newspaper kept hidden. Mountain State University stole millions of federal loan dollars and duped poor students who wanted to better themselves into signing those loans. And the paper knew about it. They knew about the Beckley Mayor, who sits on their board, and all the millions he's funneled into his own pockets through the Beckley Coal Mine and the Beckley Intermodal Gateway Project.

No surprises here. Dawn Dayton is a weak female who cannot provide the leadership necessary. Carl Antolini isn't even an editor. He's an advertising manager who is in over his head and knows nothing about journalism.
