I think a once good Newspaper is now suffering a slow death. What takes less than 5 minutes to read, and prints an opinion more often than actual news is no longer owned or printed in the County. The editorials printed often imply High Standards form the individuals they critique, yet they are ignored by the Editorial staff themselves. A recent News story of "The Mayor not plowing snow" taken from this Forum site earned Front Page status, while actual news only deserved obscurity. I believe The Times will expel its last breath before the end of the year. They have lost subscribers and advertisers, as well as staff. I wish I could say "good job Times"
"Our Mission" as printed by The Times -
The Timesí mission is to serve as the community watchdog by accurately reporting the news that affects and reflects the concerns and values of Clinton County, and in doing so, earn the readersí trust as a reliable, credible and well-respected information source. As a community watchdog accurately reporting the news,in my opinion, I dont think so. A well respected information source, in my opinion, I dont think so. Hey you WILO staff, a great opportunity to grow your business.

WOW....good work Elaine or faithful follower. What is sad here is you are writing propaganda that WILO wants you to believe. The only people that listen to partyline and read the paper are city employees so your theory is baseless. You obviousely do not get the paper as inserts are expensive and are daily occurences.

My theory, Pippenger made party line famous as we know it. Jan 2012 no one will be listening. So ...WILO good luck in keeping your advertisers..

Toe-a-burnen: Your opinion stinks just like your toes. Alan, is that you preaching at us again? It sure sounds like Elaine .....maybe she threw in the Rossville location to try to slip one past us, again.

Many people I know renewed subscriptions to The Times after Terry Ward was escorted out of town. Newspapers are having difficulty for certain. If we don't buy local, we won't have local. As for me, I buy local and I subscribe to The Times.

What I don't subscribe to is The Elaine Agenda. Elaine and her follower (Alan, is that you?) need to get a clue.

I is true what you said about Terry Ward. Since he had left I did subscribe to their paper.

I still once in a while listen to Wilo's Party line but it pretty much is the same thing. You look at their schedule of guests on their website and it is the same people over and over. The Mayor, Clinton County Sheriff, Main Street Director, YMCA Director, Chamber of Commerce, Clinton County Prosecutor, etc, etc, over and over. Not to mention it gets so boring listening to the same people calling in all the time like Larry and Don. Larry usually calls in about 2 or 3 times per show with a bunch of useless information.

I use to like listening to Elaine but I have found that she is a liberal with a microphone. I have nothing against her personally but her views aren't what most of the locals believe. I guess that is why the only people who call into the show is Larry and Don. They are about the only ones who feel the way she does. Plus I have found her facts to be off base on many occasions.

Vern Rocks!

Kevin Kevin Kevin, You big bully You. Unlike some of you rednecks, Iím not a physically confrontational person. I never place myself in what one could consider to be a physically confrontational realm. So, you and yours may take your indirect ideal threat and stick it up your exits. if you and your klan canít take it, donít dish it out and keep your derogatory commentaries off my post. Game point. You lose panty waste !!

Fred, this will be my last post as I don't like talking to fake people, thats not my style. Nothing in my post was derogatory and nor have I ever posted on this site until now. When you get the courage up and can finally be a man, please contact me.

Mr.Tuffy,
So that you may better understand, please allow me to explain in remedial terms. Firstly, I donít have to prove my manhood to you or anyone else, especially where there is a propensity for violence as you have tried to incite. In my world, when you revert to threats and or physical violence you lose. Secondly, along with this being (your) last post, please encourage (your) wife to follow (your) lead, a least as far as my post are concern. Thirdly, rest assured, I have your address on file. Lastly, you are still panty waste and (your) propensity for violence deems (you)ďthe loserĒ lol lol

You're so chicken s*** you won't even post your own name. Now put up or shut up. You're pretty brave when you can hide behind a fake name and spout all kinds of lies and filth. It won't help you keep your job. It may take a while but there are are people who should be able to find an IP addy. You're a typical Pippenger supporter: a spineless coward with with nothing better to do than make crap up.In the real world, where most of us live, you're nothing but a little worm.

You big crybaby. Better run away and hide, but before you do you'd better change you drawers since you probably crapped them when you got called out and put in your place. I'll just bet you're setting at home shaking like a leaf and crying like a little baby, you little coward. Pull up your big girl panties and act like a woman. Hint..wink..nod.wink..nod. BOO HOO!

I looked in the phone book and did not see a listing for a Wizard of Oz. Iím retired so I have no job to keep. Therefore, finish eating your free donuts and get back on patrol. Oh, shut up!!
