Do you think the newspaper has enough talented investigative reporters willing to ask the difficult questions of our city, county, state, and federal government officials in light of recent allegations of government corruption and public utility companies?

No. And I doubt there's very many small town newspapers that do either.

Do I think you have completely unrealistic expectations of a small local newspaper in 2012? Yes.
Paper is a Joke

The News Enterprise is a local paper that should stick to covering tractor pulls and hospital admissions and discharges. The paper is inadequate in every way when it comes to covering news on their own, they can pick up stories off the AP wire, but they can only print as many of these as their advertising pages a lot for, you shouldn't expect to much out of a little local paper, what kind of hard hitting repoter or one who is really talented when it comes to writing the news is going to work for the NE, why would they its a joke of a paper, they should print it once a week twice at the most and report the local news of Hardin County and leave the real news to other outlets. And while were at it the printing in the paper is horrible scum marks all over the pages, and usually the color pictures are all blurry, I don't know if this is the way they print it, or if the pictures are bad, but I wish they would do something about it, they may not be able to fix the reporting but surely they can make it look better.

IT is a joke. They are afraid to touch anything that might piss a big employer off. Notice how they never give bad press to the hospital?
Consumer reports did about a year ago though.
Listed as below average in heart care.
Never made the paper.

Did you see the photos in the Sunday paper today? It looked as if a kindergardener used water color paint and was able to pass it off to the publisher as a photograph.

JOKE!

The editor has his head in the sand.

If he wanted to actually help the community he would do a story on things that actually mattered in the community.

Only reason to buy the paper is the coupons.

Fish mongers would find it gave a bad taste to fresh fish.

i remember stories coming out in this rag a couple of years ago saying, "building and construction booming in hardin county" meanwhile lumber companies and contractors had no work or sales. false story no doubt.
that useless rag is in the tank for hardin county government,and wouldnt print one story our local government tells them not to. its time to wake up!
i would love to see an honest entrepreneur start a legit paper, without being influenced by corrupt people.....i would buy it.

As I read their paper and see some interesting topics on here, I also see this news paper seems to be afraid to investigate this Base Realignment and Closure grant project in Rineyville.

There is something to all these comments, yet no one is doing any thorough investigations.

Fort Knox/Nolin scandal is another.

Worthless paper

Use to have a reporter named Newton who exposed people to include Fort Knox. They nipped that in the bud and he left. Since that fatazz editor showed up (hometown boy) they have gotten even worse. It is not worth the money they charge. If they report on anything like a murder at Saunders Spring for example, they never do follow ups. They are run by the good ole boys of the county and will never cover scandals that reflect badly on them and especially Fort Knox. Not worth lining the bird cage.

Yewah, ain't that the truth?

How aabout the county's cash cow, HMH??

The irony is that if it were run like a real hospital they would probably make more money for the counties projects.

BRAC Rineyville WasteWater Scandal rests on the shoulders of Hardin County Judge-Executive Harry Berry as the elected CEO of Hardin County for nearly 8 years. What does he say about:

1)A cover-up between LindaSimms(LTDHD)Administrator , former LTDHD Environmental Director Jerry Brackett, and former Hardin County Environmental Supervisor Scottye Wheeling, and Hardin County Judge-Executive Harry Berry, himself.

2)Numerous Builders to file for bankrupsy to attempt to avoid class action lawsuits once Rineyville citizens are hit in the pocket for this sewer, and the victims of improper septic system installations and inspections come forward.

3) Some area banks to take the heat of those home builder bankrupsy filings, only to have those bank stockholders to pay for the loss in bank stock investment dips in their profit shares as this Scandal gets more exposure.
Paper stinks

E-town is a big enough city, it should have a newspaper that reports news, ask questions and get some facts, not just agree with everything the good ol boys in business and Goverment tell them to write. If all they want is to print the lies and keep the so called leaders of Hardin County happy then quit calling it a Newspaper, call it what it is a Good ol Boy Times, because they never question anything thats said, and they just won't print anything that is brought up negative. I wish about 75% of subscribers would cancel their subscriptions and tell the paper to start printing news, maybe somehow then the message would get thru to them, that we want a newspaper that reports both sides of the news and asks at least some questions not just always reporting one side of everything.

That Scandal has County Government "Afraid" to unveil it Hardin County Sewer Mandate for Glendale and Rineyville. That Scandal also has the News Enterprise "Scared" to investigate complaints involving corruption in the health department/home construction arena.
