Is it just me or is the NGN (main section) getting smaller and smaller. Before long we will have to find another source for the outhouse.

I never was a Norm fan but have to say he did mix in a few interesting things besides just the obvious propaganda.

Seems like an entrepreneurial hillbilly could see the opportunity that is presenting it's self and set up a true newspaper and offer a viable advertising venue at the same time.

I've noticed that the paper itself is not hardly as wide physically as it used to be. Course, that does make it easier to use as toilet paper as you point out.

Norm was a cool dude.
West is skered of ACOG and is kissing butt!
Not Butthead's, but ACOGs.
He pissed his pants, fired Norm, and is still getting sued.

heh heh heh

West is a dude with no balls.

No itís not just you, everyone realizes that the NGN isnít serving the community as a real newspaper should or would for that matter.

The paper is really a bore, and ever since the change, I donít receive my paper (now a day later on Thursday) until almost time for the next.

Everyone knows that Opinions and Editorials are one sided, and biased, as we know is common for some papers openly leaning toward certain political philosophies. But , for crying out loud you would expect some level of professionalism, attention to pressing news of interest, and investigative reporting with regard to issues needing scrutiny and question.

Blairsville isnít a community filled with children, from whom you are appointed to hide truth. We are adults ready willing and able to address the tough issues that may face our families, lives and homes.

The North Georgia News certainly has more than a duty and responsibility to provide the basics in area news expectations. It has the obligation.

So, from my perspective the NGN needs to make a very simple decision --- do your job--- live up to the duties, responsibilities, and obligations of a professional news outlet.

Provide this community with honest, reliable, and unbiased reporting of the all the news of interest to our area, or step aside.

But acog can't just present the facts. They have to get personal. At that point credibility is hurt.

Thank you Law for your post. You are right. As our legal organ, they have a higher responsibility than the average rag. Don't know why you got all those negative icons on your post but don't let that discourage you.

I am sure you and I would not see things eye to eye on every subject but it is nice to see a post that has had some actual thought put into it.

Who in the world would think we would ever miss Norm? I was one of those wishing he would leave, but now i am so sorry for getting what I asked for. Norm is gone. Kenneth West, your paper stinks.

Does anyone know where Norm went? Where is he writing now? Did he move? Where is he living? I might subscribe to the paper he is working for now so I'll have something good to read.

Well here we go again, did you see the front page news on the July 4, 2012 edition? Why is the union county clerks training article breaking news? In reading the article is seems to be a ploy for the current judge to publish a campaign advertisement . In the article it states basically his qualification that he has said in his campaign ads in NGN. It seems to me that this is a bias campaign ad to look like front page news. I think not. SHAME ON YOU DUNCAN , or should we call you Norm Cooper. Is it only that it is an election year that it is front page.

If my memory serves me correct, the NGN did an article last year on this same training class and there was a picture of the people who attended the class, and it was not front page new.
