I was told that he sort of got super glued as in see you later but not by his choice. Articles were way to controversial and sometimes had mistakes that should not have been made.

Wonder if the same people if who ran the last city manager off ran Clint and the newpaper editor off?
Dead preachers found floating in the creek, TV man dead, the last city manager leaving so sudden wonder if Clint was threatened or too scared to stay?

Is the news now control by the local click?

I could not understand any of the articles he wrote because he rambled so much. Plus most of the stuff he wrote was made up or half way true. I honestly think he just made crap up as he went. I quit buying the paper because of him.
Good Luck Clint

Well do some think he was the best reporter ever to work in Lewisburg, got the story and most of the facts even the deatils even thou, I am sure he was mislead by some?
Some may just wonder if he was run out of town or threatened in any way?
I for one will miss him and wish him the best!

Wonder what if Clink had discovered or was about to expose?
With the election coming up and the last city manager leaving town so fast who knows?

Who will now watch the election count and voting machines?

From what I read about Clint's articles, he called a spade a spade. perhaps he came "to close" and like the past city manager, left town. Imagine that, face down in Rock Creek is not very inviting.

He might have called someone a spade when they were really a CLUB or HEART. Hahahaha. Clint has been moved for poor writing at least two times before he came here. One in winchester and before than in Shelbyville. Lewisburg was his last stop in a long line of being moved around. Ask Mr. Jones in Shelbyville the owner of all three newspapers. He was very very inaccurate when it came to reporting the news with many mistakes that in one case almost lost Lewisburg a big business investor several months ago. Ask anyone on the IDB board. He did not live here and did not care what happened to our town. he wanted to make the news rather than just reporting it. Karen Hall on the other hand will do a good job and is very reliable in her reporting.

Are you saying was it the industrial recruiter at city hall with his past connections, with Mr. Jones and the IDB board that helped to got rid of the last city manager and Clint?
Does it seem did Clint report the news, facts and people, while did others tried to control and distort what Clint reported?
Did Clint like the last city manager could not be controlled or intimidated in their work, but got run out of their jobs with, lies and some local so called jealous cover ups public officials?

If his credentials were so marked from Winchester and Shelbyville, why was he hired and how did he last so long? Have never personally met this man, curious, can you give me an example of him "making the news and not just reporting it?
Perhaps the circumstances of his life did not allow him to live here, so do others make that choice, several.
The auto industry is all around Lewisburg yet the latest supplier located in Pulaski, why? Industries hire scouts to look at communities, physical appearance, schools, taxes, labor force, and social harmony.
Jobs..not here..the best and brightest go off to college and stay, no jobs here unless they become a teacher. The churches are gray and it is just a matter of time before more of them lock their doors.
How long and how much tax money has been spent on the IDB and are we any better off now? What is the future?
Finally, maybe he reported the news the way he saw it, to your point an "outsider" Surprised he lasted as long as he did.

No dumb-ass, he released a story that was to be held until thatcompany had received all its incentive bids from the state and local governemnt as negotiated by our state against other states that wanted the same company. Clint's early release of the story almost caused that company to pull out and go to the other state.
would have cost Lewisburg thousands of dollars and almost a hundred jobs. Again you only want to look for a controversy and really don't know what you are talking about. Give it a break B.L. or whoever you are. And the sky is not falling, chicken little. By the way give us specifics about these coverups with specific names and dates. Just what I thought, you are an idiot.

No he was not hired here but was moved here by Mr. Jones because Winchester and Shelbyville had the same problems with him that he caused here in Lewisburg. Again many of his reports were flawed or he was trying to make the news by reporting something before it happened and that was not his job. He also played favorites when it came to politics which is a no-no for a reporter of his caliber. His job was to report the news. Lewisburg is in much better shape with Karen Hall. She is not a tabloid reporter like Clint was or is. She has and will do a good job for Lewisburg but don't look for the usual tabloid reporting of the past. Last, him and his wife live in or near Franklin in Williamson County where houses are much expensive in price and property values are out of this world.

Is that not in itself breaking the sunshine law and even if Clint released that report someone had to give it to him and did that someone do that to get clint introuble, then blame poor old Clint?

Clint is a Reporter that reports the news but are some local public officials sunshine law breakers who set up reporters and city managers, city council men to take the fall?

Why blame Clint? If Clint was told by some city officials insider about that industry before that should have been told or reported?

Then would Clint as a reporter been doing wrong not to report it for when Clint was told did that not make that report, public knowledge and news worthy?
Even if he was told to hold the report, if those so called public officials were not breaking the sunshine laws, were they setting clint up to blame him and get him fired?

Do some think Clint like, Mcrady, and the last city manager all were set up, used just so those could be shut up and got rid of?

The last is 1st, Williamson County may have higher property values but they have better schools and Marshall County has the 3rd highest tax rate in the state. Several people in the courthouse live in Williamson County where property values are "out of this world"
Not familiar with newspaper operations but don't they all have an editor to monitor reporters?
So Clint lived elsewhere, outsider, where is Karen Hall from, you seem to know a lot about her.

Clint or the paper could have never released a story unless some insider at city hall or on the IDB had given him the information now could he?

Even if he released any story, who gives any public officials the right to tell the news media what they can or cannot print?

Read the Bill of Rights

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Do some think Clint and the news paper editor was set up was it by his so called friends at city hall and on the IDB board?
Was it about like the city manager who left town with little to no explanation to the public?
Do Lewisburg public officials, want a cover up corupt town, where the press and people can be under their control?

I wont't reveal who I am, but he once quoted me and trust me, it was very fabricated. It was not a bad quote in the sense putting me in a bad light, just the opposite, but nonetheless, it was mostly fabricated. I never bothered to say anything because it didn't amount to a hill of beans, but if I was an official of Lewisburg, I could just imagine the fear of saying anything to him.

She is good I might agree! But she is a she! Can the powerful crooked public officials if any, pull the wool over her eyes much easer than Clint?
Will she put in the time late at nights hours, attending all the different meetings, asking the right questions, digging for answers even at the local coffee clubs and meeting places?
We all could see how tired Clint was working hard, losing sleep, look half the time he was a sleep!
Clint was the best reporter Lewisburg ever seen and did more good to help keep Lewisburg Free and open government than anyone man ever has!
She will need all the help she can get!
Clint seem to never really know who his friends really were! Hope she does!

Totally agree. He took entirely too many liberties. He is not a reporter. He's a tabloid writer. Constantly on a political witchhunt for some kind of corruption and when he couldn't find it, he'd make it up. Good riddance. Maybe Bob Lowe can find out where he is so he can go kiss his @$$.
