I have recently moved back to the Richland County area, after many years away. I was born and raised in rural Richland County, just a stones throw from Jasper County. I returned to spend my retirement on a small piece of property, left to me by my father. I was in Olney a few days ago and came upon the disclosure newspaper. I was amazed by what I read in this local paper. The area I grew up in, was nothing like what I read in disclosure. A neighbor told me "That Jack Howser is a trouble-maker & and his rag is a hurtful piece of trash. Upon asking another neighbor she said " That paper keeps all the Fat-Cats in this area in check" . One thing is for certain, the mention of any of this at the local coffee shops sparks akot of conversation, as I found out. Even up in Newton this person/paper are well known. If everything this paper prints is fact, I am disgusted of what my home has become. I seem to lean towards the honesty of the paper. Since coming back I have heard of many nasty events in Richland County. These things range from the firing of a softball coach because of sexual orientation to murder cover-up. So, I ask the people of Richland and Jasper County, is this man and his paper legitimate or just a bunch of BS ?

If you have just recently returned after a long absence, you are in for a lot of surprises. Settle in for a long, long winter....

He loves for people to talk about him, whether good or bad, so he poses as other people on here and starts conversations about himself, sometimes with himself, just so he can see what people will say about him.

Yes, the publisher and Disclosure are legit. Are all the stories true? Not in my experience. But many of them are.

Winston is right, you have no idea what you've missed.

Has anyone told you about the recent string of police brutality cases? What a shame.

I have not heard of any police brutality case. I also have found their web-site. Mr. Howser / Disclosure seem to pick on the younger kids. This bothers me a bit. While I do not condone underage drinking, does it need to be splashed all over the media ? I'm sure we all made mistakes when we were teens, I know I did. The humiliate them in this fashion in unfortunate. On the other-hand a parent allowing underage drinking to take place in very wrong. From an outsiders point of view I say this to Jack Howser. You seem to be a good journalist and care about your community. However, attacking children/teenagers is wrong. I wonder do you support or donate to any teen programs. Wouldn't it be far more fulfilling to reach out and help misguided teens, rather that humiliate and belittle them. Being a teen in my generation was not easy, I can only imagine what it must be like now. P.S. If you do donate and support, my hat iss off to you.

The Disclosure News Magazine reports the stories the Olney Daily Mail will not print. It amazes me each month when Jack/Angela's issue of Disclosure comes out and I see a story that is going on in Olney and the Happy, Sappy Daily Mail has not uttered one word about it. I also enjoy finding out which farmers are "On the Teat."

Good God Jack will you ever quit...you have absolutely no shame. Using this forum to toot your own horn is so low even for a devil like you. "Angela and Jack are both great people". Yeah she thinks you're great and you think she is great and you both think yourselves are great...and that is where it stops. And you read this "drivel" on here because it's all about you...your ego wouldn't dare let you ignore it. Sh*t stirring...that is what the Disclosure is all about...you are so miserable with your own pathetic existance that it makes you feel better to drag others down below you. You both have the talent to be fantastic journalist...unfortunately you have thrown that away to publish this trash. Disgraceful to say the least.

I agree with Rastous. Ask Them. The thing about the Disclosure paper is that most of what they print is to establish the truth about rumors. It's stories we've heard and they do the dirty work and give the details and in somes cases it's not nice,but it is from good sources or court records. No local paper will print anything about the judges,lawyers,cops and the affluent.

does anyone remember that song "who's cheating who?" WHO CARES?????? I got a underaged drinking charge at 16. I was in school full time, had 3 cars (all within 5 years of being new, and FULLY paid for thanks to busting my a@@ with 3-4 jobs since i was 12) and got off work at midnight one night and was 3/4 way through a beer and the police showed up and even told my parents that i was a good kid that was just in the wrong place at the wrong time so did i deserve to be splashed on some overgrown man childs wet dream idea of a "newspaper" NO. Granted, anyone stupid enough to make their myspace public is a complete moron but there is a reason that the (in jacks words "happy, sappy ODM") local papers dont print minors names. shall we mentions the dirty deeds of his children when they were minors?- well heeeeelllll no cause that'd be wroonggggggggggg!!!!

Yeah come on out and try to shut me down JR, I'm on a rampage. The fact that the Howsers do not support any kind of program or outreach to teenagers just proves my point...they are not trying to "help" these teenagers by shaming them into seeing the error of their ways, as they claim. They just like to torment them because they actually enjoy the misery of others...it makes them feel better about their own shortcomings. Just like bullies on a playground. And the only thing it is accomplishing with these teenagers is it is making them angry...and angry teenagers do angry things. Seriously do you really think any of these kids are reading about themselves and thinking "crap I better straighten up, so they won't write about me any more". Heck no they are going to be defiant and angry and things will probably get worse. Obviously some of these kids are lacking in decent parental guidance or they wouldn't be acting this way. Why would grown adults such as the Howsers want to make it worse for them? Because they enjoy it...which makes them sick and evil.

It is I Steamboat. But I forgot to sign in the last post. Anyhow. Johnny ole boy it is plain to see you are not a regular reader of Jack/Angela's fine News Magazine, The Disclosure. He writes about his tribe just like he writes about any other little outlaw. I believe Jack writes about little alkies to bring shame to them so just maybe they won't get tanked up and get in a car and hit one of your loved ones and send to meet there maker. Comprenday? Maybe you ought to thank him. Glad to hear you work several jobs. Keep up the good work and just say NO.

Mike I respect your opinion, I really do, but at the risk of stroking Jack's ego any more than it has been by this thread that bears his name, you have no idea what this man is capable of. He and his wife are tenacious little boogers at best and borderline crazy at worst. They will stop at nothing to further their agenda, whatever that may be at the time, and right now it is to find out how the people of Richland county feel about them as they are fixing to move there. That and the fact that Jack loves it when people are discussing him. I'm wondering if that number of posts is what he has posted since registering as Rastous, or the total he has posted here under all his other names. Not sure how that works but shouldn't be too hard to figure out. Is it possible for anyone to have that many posts in eight days? lol.

It would appear my lean was wrong. I have read sevral past issues, supplied by my neighbor this evening. There are many stories which I feel have merit and should be reported. However, the attack on the teens is just wrong. Mr. Howser also seems to have no respect for law enforcement. I would be interested to know if there are any local law enforcement officals that Mr. Howser approves of. If you are trying to shame the kids into being good citizens,what kind of message does it send to them when you bash law enforcement, but expect them to conform to your opinion of what they should be. How do you expect to be taken seriously. In one of the issues I noticed that Mr. Howser reports on a local police chiefs divorce and also bashes his child for underage drinking. What is the relivence of the divorce, why even report on his divorce. That does no-one any good, it in no-way helps anyone. Why report it ! But since you did report it, two parents divorcing might explain why the child has turned to alcohol. Just maybe the boy could be helped if people gave as much attention to programs, and services to help and assist these teens, rather than harrass and cyber stalk them. My first thoughts on this Mr. Howser and his paper were favorable. But now that I have spent the better part of a day informing myself, I just feel a bit dirty. Shame on you Mr. Howser

As I have said before, some things are better left unsaid, New and Old Resident. There are interesting and informative articles in the Disclosure, but they lose all credibility when they throw something personal in there that is just meant to embarrass or hurt someone. Just because it may be true doesn't necessarily mean it needs to be told. Especially when such things are usually unfounded rumors or gossip. Rastous calls the Howsers great people, when a few days ago, as Steamboat, he claimed to not know them personally. Well, great people they aren't...great people would not stoop to such levels.
