Dick Farell leaves editor post after 36 years following a Dover police report catching him in a car with a woman in the early hours. Times Reporter does not have a comment section-why? Rumor has it that "the woman" works for the Democratic party and there is a glaring conflict of interest regarding endorsements and reporting.

#2 thanks for adding your bright and insightful comments to the discussion - why bother to respond at all? Perhaps if you or your family members had been sliced and diced in TR editorial comments you would feel differently. This man had a lot of power to endorse electoral candidates and influence public opinion about a number of issues including the murder conviction of a local woman.

Democratic candidate for Tusc County Commissioner?
If she cheats on her husband of 30plus years with TR's editor Farrell I would not trust her to serve in public office. Shame on both of them for embarassing their families and loved ones.!!!

Why did the paper point out the indiscretion? Why not just say he left for personal reasons?

I agree, why did the paper include that information in the article - it makes no sense-cheating on your spouse does not usually result in termination - why not just say he resigned or retired?

Such a upstanding pillar in the community with so many opinions for all levels of society. My question who in the hell made him God!! I never did think he could write an editorial without his right hand puppet man Jack Shores whispering shit in his ear anyway. It's amazing how one can go from Boy Wonder to just Boy in a matter of moments.(Thank God for tilt wheel)(Dick will know what I mean as he has written about so many who have fallen on tough times! Welcome to the club, cub reporter. It's too bad they are no longer printing the Grit newspapr, it wopuld make a great place to start over, Dick!! I know I did after about 86 of your faboulous sesationalized front page articles.

newsprint, obviously you are not a fan, it seems like you know more about what happened than the TR is willing to share- Please give me the 411- why did the TR dump him after so many years - it can't be just for cheating and acting like an ass!

Amanda Spies Bornhurst, are you sure you and Dick weren't in on the Anthony Harris Case? Are you sure you and Dick were trysting in the back of the newsroom? I thought the Prosecutor's office and the TR were one in the same.

Lily, when the former Prosecutor's' office and the T/R were in "lock step", it only make sense once Amanda's mouth, pant suits, and inabilities wrere exposed (i.e. Harris Case) were out the door so goes the the Editor's only hope of sounding like he knew what he was expounding on...certianly a sad state of affairs!!

Isn't objectivity the first thing students are taught in journalism school? Shame on you, Dicky boy!

I think you got the wrong information. Farrell wrote a scathing editorial and endorsed the Republican candidate for County Prosecutor which probably cost her the election. Farrell is a booze hound who has womanized for years but I doubt he and Amanda were ever "friends" in any sense of the word

With all that infuence let's hope one could get a little action, be they Democrat, Independent, or Republican,(Sarah Palin wasn't in town was she?)

How appropriate his name is "Dick" What pisses me off is his editorial on the Marsha Mills murder conviction. He seemed to think he knew more than the 12 jurors who convicted her in the murder of that little child. Dick let me introduce you to Karma - payback is a bitch

Everyone in the community has accused the Times Reporter of being "in bed" with the Democratic party - yikes who ever knew how true it was- I guess it was not in bed it was in the back seat.
Close enough!

So does one really need to declare their party affiliation in order to screw up someone's 36 year career of being all knowing...where in the hell did he get half that crap he wrote of?? Pillow talk??

Dick, how about a 1,000 word essay that would recap all the things you wrote about that you weren't really sure of (extra paper is O.K. if needed!!)

Oh yeah, you can also "hang that document out to dry" if needed.

You don't think the D.P.D. was going "peepers' do you?

Guys, next time, just pat them on the ass (oops, I mean just send them on their way) it would have saved you a lot of paperwork, and I am sure it would have given you a chuckle or two down at Dunkin'(You can do it we can help! Sorry, that's Home Depot!) But I know you get the idea.

Certianly there were a few larger capers (no pun intended Dick) going on that really neeeded your attention.

Especially if you were three weeks behind in the "ol paperwork department!!(I just hope that report was in triplicate, press hard three copies!!)

newsprint- what did Farrell do to you - it seems like you have experienced his arrogance first hand!

Can someone please sort the fact from fiction for me. It sounds like that town is nothing short of Peyton Place.

Please don't judge us all by the actions of a few idiots
