Yah, they're still down Thurs at 8:21am. One thing I notice about them is they only work Mon - Fri. No news on the weekend!

There's a rumor out there you are Warren Judge?? We already know alot about you- you live in the Village, you ride a bike, you've told us the restuarants you frequent, etc etc. If you wish to truly remain anonymous, you may want to consider posting less personal stuff about yourself on this website. Just saying.

Who is "we"? By the way, WE have heard rumors about you too...

Glasspilot, you can always watch the local news station or read the two local papers for up to date weekend news. Uh, wait a minute... nevermind.

The Outer Banks Voice is nothing but an Internet Rag started by two out of work a##holes, one a dried up bankeer and the other a dried up editor who got fired by the Virginia Pilot paper. I would rather read the Coastland Crimes. But both are so slanted you will never get real news.

It's always made me laugh that the Coastland Times Sunday paper comes out on Saturday.

I have Direct TV, so no local station. Local papers? A real paper is published every day and has state, national and world news. VP for me.

I look at it on occasion but let's face it, it is a blog dressed up as an online newspaper. Biased? You bet. It really is a shame the Va. Pilot gave up the NENC local news. We have a market without a service. The Times is what it is, and the Sentinel is little more then an ad flyer for the Elizabeth City car dealers with some spitballs mixed in from the "Editor" The Raleigh N&O is what I read and it too is a liberal rag but it keeps me touch with my state...we do live in NC you know.

Please, ladies, gents, readers -- expand your minds past the Voice, or read larger volume real or at least somewhat less slanted "news." The Voice is just, as many former writers in the OBX area know, and as stated above, a rag. Maybe less than a rag, as a rag has more use. Best stated is the Voice is an internet blog. Too bad the Voice, and other type like internet "sources" are simply a chance for the less able to appear more able. Anyone in the profession, or having studied the profession, easily understands the value of such a type "news source" is simply minimal. However, it does give a chance for dried up prunes like me to comment and write more on such trash. Too bad -- So many good writers and news-types out there watching the profession wither from the likes of this defective news product. Clear out the employee trash, and then let us have a proper internet or printed newspaper for the OBX. No, I cannot start one, as I have just about exhausted my fingers typing this little vent here :) I am an old prune too. If you’re going into the profession stay away from such type news media as anything similar to the Voice (or similar rags). Readers better you go to the YMCA or like places throughout the beach area and listen to the gossip, much more reliable than the Voice. Yes, occasionally I do read the voice when my former associates in the profession call me to explain how they have used “it” to demonstrate to students in their journalism classes they teach as the “do not do this” example. Maybe an article about the Voice staff member who, some years ago, worked for a realtor and vacation property terminated or nicely "let go" for hacking into the protected database pay files? Just heard that gossip at the YMCA a few days ago.

Retired Writer you hit the nail on the head and I don't doubt the "rumor" based on some experience I've had with that organization. No it is not a "newspaper" although it may provide some from time to time. The principal there has a bias, an agenda if you will, and its to the left of center. Lets hope those in the area who read it, and happen to read this...will wake up and see it for what it is, one step above a gossip column.
