Maybe they started out with good intentions. Maybe all they wnted to do was help right some wrongs in the county. Somewhere along the way the gentlemen behind the edgar county watchdogs lost sight of what they had set out to do... Now blinded by hubris the edgar county watchdogs have evolved into a tactless group of extremists that do more tormenting than watching. I have become embarrassed for the county and embarressed for them. I love living in this county and would like to see it prosper. With all the negative publicity this group brings upon the county, I fear that this will hinder prospective people or businesses from comming to edgar county.

I'm embarassed to say I live in Edgar County. If our elected and appointed officials would abide by the laws and do what is right we wouldn't need the watchdogs. You may not like them but they have opened several eyes in this county as they do as they dam well please! Sometimes it takes a prick to deal with pricks!

They definitely do more harm and stir more trouble than they do positive things. Most of the stuff they go crazy over is just nit-picking over their interpretations of statutes and laws. Just because they interpret it a certain way doesn't make it fact. They are awfully arrogant and disrespectful to our city officials. But what do you expect from a disgruntled janitor and a volunteer fireman. Bitterness.

What eyes have these guys opened? I don't know of anything substantial that has been brought to light by these guys. If there has i would like to know. I would like to have my eyes opened. As of yet all they do is annoy me with their cry wolf tattle-taleing. These guys haven't gotten one person arrested for law breaking...no one has gone to jail because of them. KNow why? Because no one is breaking the law and the piddley stuff they bring up no one cares about. Obviously their opinion isn't law.

What will you people say when Federal indictments are handed down on Kami Miller and her family?

What will you say when the guy who ran the airport and not is in charge on the county board has to leave office after the state comes down on him?

You have to be blind to think laws haven't been broken. Just because people haven't been arrested doesn't mean they didn't break the law.

I think their goal was to stop the corruption more than send anyone to jail. The ones that need to go to jail are the ones that refuse to stop the wrongs they are doing like the airport crap.

Maybe if the states atty would quit spending 2 years chasing after 18 yr old boys fighting a simple traffic ticket he would have time to fight public corruption. Unless he's part of the problem. . .

I have to laugh when people make it sound like edgar county is some kind of lawless old west town. I'll believe what they say when the law is brought down on these people with evidence and not just a webpage and words...so I'M still waiting. Still waiting for kami miller and the airport guy...as of yet nothing real has happened to them...just talk. It seems the police and judges don't respond very well to just talk.

They didn't expose Kami Miller, they just embarrassed her. This deal was already in motion way before these idiots got involved.

The airport is nothing more than a great big witch hunt. In a couple of weeks, it will die and they will try to pick on someone else.

I do read their "Journalism" daily.....its a great way to start my day off with a laugh.

meh is right. The watchdogs just injected themselves into those 2 situations. kami miller got caught from an internal audit and the airport is a dispute between management and a renter. Sry to burst your bubble.

They are cowards. They hide behind their website. They very rarely confront a problem directly and offer help. They do things behind turned backs and then massage the truth to fit around their opinions. They are past being capable of helping the county...too many people doubt their legitimacy at this point. Well the people that actually matter anyway.

Look who's hiding - ROFLMAO - behind a screen name on topix.

Must be time for a new Disclosure to come out - like clockwork, chit talkers start about a week before new issue. All you are doing is driving up sales! Keep it up.

I'm still blue in the face from holding my breath on their previously promised indictments. At least John accomplished going back to school after he was canned from St. Mary's.

For all the topix noobs. The watchdogs and their buddies pour over topix and keep a close eye on it so they can respond in their defense. Cowards was most likely one of them or a close friend. FYI
