It's amazing to watch the reaction by a crybaby like vanderbeck after OUR much, much, much, much more intelligent and morally superior members of the Fiscal Court made light of scandalous efforts to force the appointment of cronies of the town of Little frankie to regional boards.
Thank you, Magistrates and your County Judge, for putting that little wimp in his place.
The demise of political corruption appears closer with each bitch slap applied to their mouth piece, jeff vanderbeck!

Wayne has embarrassed the paper again. More people watch pike tv and read topix than read the paper. Go Wayne T.

Topix is untainted by political corruption.
ANE seems to be so tightly controlled it's no longer a viable source of anything other than ridiculously one-sided rhetoric.

Is the agenda of the newspaper to REPORT the news? Or as it appears with this paper to modify, add and delete from the news so it suits someones agenda?
I have many issues with our County Judge but I am offended by what I percieve as personal attacks on him by vanderbeck.
I wonder how much coverage would be offered had Mr. Rutherford assaulted the editor in a downtown saloon?
In addition when anything is brought up about any possible issues concerning the city officials or the puppets they send out to do their bidding on boards or councils you turn a blind eye or say there is no one willing to go on the record. Shame on you. Shame on you for going on the record yourself and stating what someone might have said or what you think they should have said.
Shame on you for turning a blind eye on the sale of Merions Branch and any possible wrong doing by the airport board in ignoring other appraisials. Shame on you for failing to pay the small sum to request the records from the city.
Thumbs up for the Fiscal court and especially Mr. Harris for stepping up and at least asking for the records so that the city/board could be cleared or exposed. Thumbs up for Mr. Harris and his persistance in exposing the Nunnery apprasial that for a time could not be produced by the city. I find it strange that the Nunnery apprasial was the highest apprasial but somehow was not used. The airport board has a responsibility to serve the intrests of the airport. Not the city or county. And its in the best interest of the PEOPLE and the PEOPLES AIRPORT to sell the property for the highest ammount. Not the lower.

"Is the agenda of the newspaper to REPORT the news? Or as it appears with this paper to modify, add and delete from the news so it suits someones agenda?"
So well said. I don't think Jeff Vanderbeck even realizes there are astute individuals, such as you, who are capable of scrutinizing our only print news media.
Vanderbeck comes across as being so deeply involved with the small, but politically powerful,'machine' so entrenched in Eastern Kentucky he fails to realize there are real live individuals out here who have educations. There are those who will take time to read and recognize his BIAS and journalistically challenged rambling attacks so viciously and childishly leveled against selected officials not approved of, at any given time, by his personal 'friends in high places'.
I don't think anyone at ANE (definitely not Vanderbeck) understands what "JOURNALISM" really is.
The press is a mighty powerful tool which, when controlled by a select few, becomes a very powerful WEAPON. Shame on advertisers who support such a suspected 'politically controlled' excuse for a NEWSpaper.

After reading todays edition I have a couple questions for the ANE. Please tell me the back issue where you reported on the Marions Branch situation and what did your research reveal about the sale?
Please show your readers the canceled check for the Freedom of Information request to unearth the facts that we the people paid for by and through the Fiscal Courts efforts. You ignored the peoples pleas to look into this matter and I hope the people eventually ignore your paper.

I was embarrassed for donavon blackburn this evening. I watched channel 99 as he and some member of his city commission praised themselves in a pitiful attempt at 'damage control'. I have never heard such BS on that channel and there has been a huge amount of BS from the city during these 'excuse' presentations.
What would we expect to be said between those two I call liars? They are both up to their eyballs in suspected wrong doing and there was not ONE person there to ask questions or debunk what appear to be an hour long attempt to cover up what they have done.
ANE will probably parrot what was said by those two cozy cronies.

Jeff will make them feel better!
#10 Mar 9, 2013
Has anyone seem Barry Chaney and Donovan on Pike TV? They tried defending the Purchase of the Marions Branch property. I felt sorry for them. Do either of those 2 have college degrees?
#11 Mar 9, 2013
Vanderbeck always seems to have supporting info that appears to support his agenda. Or possibly theirs.
Why didn't vanderbeck use the Freedom Act to get the FACTS
Revenue Diversion Folks.
#12 Mar 9, 2013
Just read the ANE. Also read all the information that the court provided through the Freedom Act.
I wonder where Vanderbeck is getting his information........Six apprasials?????????? Even the city doesn't state that there was six apprasials.
In my opinion I believe Vanderbeck meant that the city had SIX airport board members in their back pocket. Not six apprasials. Again in my opinion Jeff should take better notes when getting his propaganda from Frankie in my opinion.
The previous comments in whole is but my opinion and are not presented as fact, merely my opinion just as Mr. Vanderbeck does in the ANE.
Check the facts Jeff. SIX apprasials. Why haven't you asked about the " AS IS " questions brought up concerning the apprasial funded by the city?

After watching Mr. Blackburn and Mr. Chaney spend an hour grinning at each other on channel 99, just the two of them, defending the city of Pikeville against....UHHH...Wait a minute....UHHH..Aw shucks...I forgot who was there to represent the 'other side'? Maybe I just missed someone else who surely was involved. NO? Oh..Man..That wreaks of bias from many sources.
Many issues are yet to be faced and addressed/defended by Little frankie and donavan Blackburn.
Of course Bill Hickman and the 'remaining' airport board members are definitely not immune to prosecution if corruption is proven.
I want the TWO of them, along with Bill Hickman, to define "Revenue Diversion".
I want to know WHY Mr.DeBourbon was replaced (So childishly and spitefully by Little frankie) with a totally unqualified and unaware Bill Hickman when Mr. DeBourbon held an FAA pilot license with advanced aviation ratings and decades of managing an airport.
Why? Little frankie, did you appoint the totally unqualified, inept, but loyal "Bill Hickman" to replace such a highly qualified board chair?(Oh...I did use the adjective "LOYAL", didn't I?)
Could you have caused your 'eleventh hour' appointee, Bill Hickman, to break the law by having him assist you in what appears to be an illegal take-over of property by deception?
Tell us Little frankie...If you are so willing to reverse that travesty by selling back the property, does that mean your own personal vendetta against Mr. DeBourbon and your red faced angry replacement of him on the airport board with a 'subservient' to you has brought you to a very satisfying personal (and possibly lurid)'climax' of your arrogant internal anger and fit throwing?
Tell us Little frankie and donavan blackburn: If this shameful episode does not incriminate you two and your friends, Will the two of you breathlessly roll over and ask "Anybody got a cigarette?"

Does anybody else remember when Vanderbeck waited on tables at Chirico's when it was in the old Pinson Hotel? How did that clown ever get put in charge of the newspaper?!?!?
#15 Mar 11, 2013
In my opinion Frankie liked his service then, and NOW.
#16 Mar 12, 2013
He definitely appears to be "servicing" Little frankie now.
Ol Donavan Blackburn (I watched his charade again on 99) said he had invited media and they/he was attending the self serving meeting between he and Barry Chaney from the frankie commission. I don't have to wonder WHO that 'media' person was. It never spoke nor appeared during the pitiful self emasculation of Donovan and Barry.
As I scrutinized the program's contents a second time, more damaging deflection was seen.
The word 'intent' was used way too many times to be credible in Blackburn's attempt to explain away the charges against the city and its airport board.
I hope to NEVER again be exposed to the sickeningly over used and parroted "COMPREHENSIVE PLAN".
Blackburn repeatedly alluded to the "BIG PICTURE" and I suppose that is in some way expected to exonerate Little frankie and his subservient airport board.
I'm sick of childish rhetoric and deflection. I want something shown to actually justify the bizarre shenanigans and political gymnastics performed by our elected officials behind our backs and behind closed doors.
Donovan Blackburn can repeat "comprehensive plan" till his head explodes and it will, in no way, explain just what is being hidden by such as the sorrowful Merion's Branch cover-up.
Also the public has asked thousands of times: Why did Little frankie help fund the meanest, sluttiest, nastiest anti-Chris Harris video that could have ever been conjured up by a witch or warlock? Magistrate Harris' small children were exposed to it but Little frankie, Ray Jones, Jr. and others neither apologized nor explained the vicious attack on his family)
Donavan Blackburn, do you support and defend frankie's huge contribution to that video?
You defend the little fart in every other way!
