Thank goodness. Hope he boots everybody connected with the Cooks and starts fresh so we can have a truthful paper instead of a Cook political flyer.

Thought it funny that Mr Red Boiling Springs' paper had all school menus listed but RBS(a month ago maybe)and all year round has Red Boiling Springs sports news on last page if there at all. We have Little League, Softball, Baseball, and Basketball. Probably the most ignored is the successful girls volleyball program. Jr High girls undefeated so far. Maybe we should teach them to serve footballs over the net for some coverage?
While I may be biased, a newspaper should NOT. Report the news without all the hidden agendas.

Also tired of Mr. Red Boiling Springs' hidden agendas in his so-called newspaper. Hope the new owner reports the news fairly.

Didn't know about the RBS jr. high girls volleyball success --- this should be reported on.

Does Marcus Darnell have connections wth the family that owns Citizens bank? Why doesn't he have a banking job if he is connected? Where did Darnell come from before here? Is Darnell registered as a voter and if so what is his " stripe"?

Mark is son of Charlie Darnell, Board of Citizens Bank. He used to work there. He was a People's Bank in Hartsville, but that just closed.

I don't know much about Mark Darnell, but i do know he'll have to be a real low life sorry piece of crap to ever compare to John Cook. I hope he has great success with this paper, the less ability John Cook has to stir up trouble the better our county is

There is only one person covering both Macon County School...all their sports...with no help. If parents or fans are concerned about their team not being covered, maybe they should pick up a pen and paper and write down some stats for their sports reporter. Even better, grab a point and shoot camera and help out. It's a big job for one person to be solely responsible for and I'm sure EVERY TEAM is just as important to the reporter as the ones who makes it into the paper. Ever think that maybe the reason those teams make it in the paper is because, instead of nagging about it not being covered, parents and fans actually help out by submit information. Be a team player, or stop nagging. Oh and P.S. Red Boiling Springs has football too. Who ever wrote the above comment should not be so arrogant as to forget to mention them!

I believe the Darnell boy is the one who announces football for the local radio. Surely if he does that for them he will cover it for his own paper. I agree with GetaLife as my child has been in sports. It's hard to be everywhere. Usually there's a good photographer among the moms and dads and usually a scorekeeper. Newspapers depend on ads to keep going. It takes everyone in the community contributing plus a few reporters that bust their--- to make it happen. Sure hope he pays 'em good. They have some good ones that care about the community and the news they cover. That's what has kept them alive. Just my opinion.

His Mistake

Scottsville, KY

Why would Darnell get rid of the best reporter in Macon County? Lisa Spivey is a darn good writer & reporter, an asset to any paper that is lucky to have her. Why did they keep Debbie Gregory? She might be a nice lady but as a reporter she doesn't fit the bill. Debbie does Ok when talking about her daddy or writing little cutsie things & maybe a human interest story but as a true news reporter she is sorely lacking. Without a good & respected reporter like Lisa, I can honestly see the Chronicle folding. Lisa is liked & trusted by everyone who has ever come in contact with her and Mr. Darnell made a big mistake by letting her go.

Mark is also a MCHS and a West Point Grad and served our country in the military. His son, graduated from MCHS last year I think, was actually born in Germany when Mark was stationed there. His wife is also a very nice lady.

I wish Mark all the best and hope he continues to improve the Chronicle. I really think we need two papers here in Macon County.
