Greetings ~ This is david, publisher of the News Report circulating in Union Co / Blairsville. It's been a little over a week since distribution began, and I thought I would do a quick update and make some comments.

~~~# 1)~~~
I have had ZERO REQUESTS FOR RETRACTIONS. I want to repeat that NOBODY has come to me and formally denied a single fact or allegation in my News Report. If everyone will please reference page 3 of my News Report, then you will see under the sections "Disclaimer" and "Retractions" that I clearly indicate a strong wilingness and intention to retract or correct anything that is brought to my attention as being false. NOBODY, not Lamar Paris / Jeff Langley - nor anyone else mentioned in the News Report - has uttered even a small peep nor suggestion to me that anything is incorrect.

HOWEVER, I am told that in front of a small group of mostly supporters, Commissioner Paris did call me a Liar, and did curse at Linda Pittman. But to me - not a word.

~~~# 2)~~~
I have watched with growing anger and disgust the cowardly personal attacks made on innocent people as a result of this. I want to especially offer my apologies to Mr. Harold Cook for the disgraceful treatment he has received as a result of offering to distribute the News Report. For the record, I do not know Mr Cook personally, nor did I ask him to do this. It is my understanding that he has done it because he believes and knows that what is printed in the News Report is true - and he is simply courageous enough to stand for the truth. I can tell you I have had shop owners tell me they would love to distribute it - and some are quietly - but they don't want their name attached - because they say they FEAR retaliation by the City or County. Or they FEAR the economic sanctions or slander campaigns similar to what you see with Mr. Cook. That right there is a red flag - when local businesses FEAR those that are in leadership. So it is good that some stand - that others may begin to not feel so alone, and slowly be emboldened.

~~~# 3)~~~
I want to clarify something legally to everyone. Linda Pittman (ACOG) and myself are separate entities. I am solely responsible for the publication Union County News Report. It is the beginning of many publications I am planning throughout the Region, including more in Union County specifically.

~~~# 4)~~~
THIS IS A MESSAGE TO EVERYONE WHO READS, AND HAS A BRAIN, OR AT LEAST A SMALL BIT OF COMMON SENSE......

I want everyone to consider one thing. My News Report contained specific facts and allegations. These posters here offer nothing but personal attacks. No one can or will point to a specific fact and talk specifics. No one has been able to refute a single allegation. For Example, NO ONE has denied the Judy Spiva coverup. I am still waiting for the town to start DEMANDING ANSWERS from Lamar Paris and the District Attorney... DID JUDY SPIVA STEAL MONEY? HOW MUCH? WAS IT PAID BACK?

I'D ALSO LIKE TO SEE hard hitting questions about the Audit from people.

* Where has the $411,259 been hiding that the Auditor said was from the leftover 1998 Splost?

* Can he produce & explain the 20 checks that the Auditor says no one authorized?

* Who where the "few" county employees that took $24,139.00 in excessive “Compensated Absences” that were Above the Allowed Limit?

ON PERSONAL issues, one might ask the Commissioner if he paid all the back taxes required on Parcel 082-010??? Can he explain why the Tax Assessor illegally remapped his property in order to give him special tax conservation status?

DON'T LET THE COMMISSIONER CONTROL THE DISCUSSION - MAKE HIM ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS. THERE ARE PLENTY OF VALID QUESTIONS THAT DEMAND ANSWERS IN THAT NEWS REPORT.

MAKE HIM ANSWER!

Peace,

My thought is that the Spin Doctor won't address the allegations, except to attack the messenger He'll talk in generalities, not specifics. He may go off into never, never land, even.

Thank you. I am truly humbled. I also second your comment that Linda has stood fast. Amazing woman - and these personal attacks on her by cowards - are not helping their case.

If you do not want a copy of the newspaper you will have to write to the address on the back of the paper and give us YOUR ADDRESS. That way you will not get the next edition. Simple as that.

I would be very disappointed if Lamar responds directly to these lunatics. He's smarter than that and wouldn't lower himself.

Hey, David, how many citizens of UC county have contacted you about your news letter?

3,000 copies and how many responses?

Now, be honest, little Mountain.

Agreed! I guess if we like Lamar and are sick of ACOG and TMV we are idiots on this site. Lamar keep up the good work.

Yes, on this site, but its the only place we are in a minority. I have enough confidence in Lamar and the county's fondness of Lamar not to let this forum conern me. I do love to stir the pot when I'm bored.

You sure are bored a lot. What's the matter your wife not like you any more? Maybe she just likes someone else.
