There are serious things about to go down concerning vanderbeck's friends in the city. I bet he won't report on it. If he does, the 'reporting' will be in favor of Little frankie and his cronies. It's coming very soon.
How serious

I also heard something. Maybe this is what you are talking about?

.Evidently a 'freedom of information' request has FINALLY been fruitful. Several possibly incriminating documents had supposedly been withheld by one or more city officials and the Mayor's 'new' airport board.

These documents, which are supposed to be a matter of public record, had been reported as "missing". The evidence allegedly shows a possible criminal conspiracy between some Pikeville City officials and their so-called 'new' Pikeville airport board.

Immediately after a so-called mayor, "LITTLE" frankie Justice, beat the hell out of a sissy, wimpy little cowardly editor of our ONLY local newspaper, APPALACHIAN NEWS EXPRESS, Jeff Vanderbeck appears to have equally cowardly fallen in lock step with the questionable politicians in Pikeville town and Eastern Kentucky. That's the YANKEE way?

I hope everyone who reads the childishly, red faced, angry smutt campaign launched by vanderbeck this past weekend understands that many subserviant underlings have shared in BIG money from the crooked antics of Pike County politicians. Perhaps this rabid attack is striving for that personal benefit?

Perhaps Mr. Vanderbeck is on someone's "PAYROLL" now? We can assume and then investigate.

Vanderbeck is actually "alledged" to be a journalist!

Is he also a theoretical physicist? Possibly a nuclear scientist? YEAH!! Then I am a star ship captain. "Beam me up Scotty"!

Just read his personal and obviously biased, red faced, anger riddled and vindictive assault on County Judge Wayne Rutherford and accompanying glorification of those allied with his own friends in the Town of Pikeville.

We in Appalachia have had our share, and much more, of such big feeling 'reporters' as Jeff Vanderbeck.

I contend that JEFF VANDERBECK is of the lowest class of politically controlled fake journalists as has ever been forced upon us, the honest citizens of our Cumberland Plateau.

When the first amendment to the U.S. Constitution is abused, as it apparently is, we all suffer.

Shame on you JEFF VANDERBECK!

It is becoming more obvious with each vicious attack by the ANE, in favor of a select number of highly suspicious characters such as Little frankie, that the honest people of this area have NO voice.

How can you sleep at night and face your family each morning?

Viciously directed political articles by Mr. Vanderbeck are indicative of an ever increasingly corrupt political 'system' which makes victims of us all.

What makes what wayne does any worse than what frank does? Seems that frank has the vanderbeck guy in his back pocket.

Both wayne and frank are unsavory in my opinion. But the ane only sees one way and thats franks way.

ANE avoids anything to do with the merions branch scandel. Let me repeat scandel. Why if the ane is truely looking out for corruption within this area do they avoid this situation? For a small fee the information can be obtained through the freedom of information act. Does the ane do this? No.

This property was hailed from the start to be for housing. Where are they and why havent we heard any information about it donovan? But i do hear a lot about a golf course. Seems the great senator doesn't like rubbing elbows with the common pike countian over at mt public links. And i also hear that the summitt engineers folks will be in line for some of that money to be spent. Kinda smelly when jack sykes is on the airport board that let the property go for a song and dance in my opinion. Just as smelly is the situation where jack resigns from the airport board as a result of his illness then suddenly changes his mind and asks for his resignation to be recinded. I am sympathetic with jacks illness but the airport needs members that can attend month in and month out. Just look at the attendance record for the last three years and one may get an idea of how concerned these people are with the airports needs.

Now this is just some of the things ane turns a blind eye to.

This post in its entirety is my opinion. I encourage anyone that is concerned with how their tax dollars are being wasted to ask about the merions branch property grab by the city. And did they pay a yugo price for a bmw property?????? How about it vanderbeck how much diggin have you done on this matter? Or arent you allowed to do anything but talk about wayne?
thanks

When the only newspaper in an area chooses to side so heavily and completely with an entrenched and highly suspect local political machine, it leaves but one assumption to be made logically. There's something about 'if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it must be a duck.'
How can a newspaper official call himself a journalist if he has become nothing but a loud mouthpiece for these highly suspicious characters?
No other party can win any election if it's 'fixed' by the only local media outlet.
All the younger members of my family are learning what not to do by reading all those dirty accusations made by what is supposed to be a professional journalist.

I sincerely hope none in my family turn out to be such a poor excuse for a man as Mr. Jeff Vanderbeck.

What the mayor and his friends did concerning the Merian's branch property is a slap in the face to every person in Eastern Ky. I really hope to see criminal charges filed against those responsible.
You are right in everything you said and it's not going to ever be followed and reported on in an honest and professional manner until Mr. Vanderbeck stops kissing mayor justice and the rest of his gaggle of characters.
Appalachian news express has been turned into a dirty smut rag by the incompetence and cowardice of a Yankee we would love to see go back to where he came from.
ANE is an embarrassment under the totally biased control of one who is woefully inept and hopelessly controlled by self serving politicians.

Jeff Vanderbeck may live here but he isn't from here. So please stop acting like you are a native and have such deep concerns for this area. The only concerns you have seems to be the ones frankie tells you to have.

Now why is the herald leader working on the airport situation from 150 miles away and you are doing nothing. Your b s about no one wanting to go on the record is pitiful. Just request the records and the facts will be known.

Facts that make it clear why a long term sitting airport board, that had accumalated over 8 MILLION dollars, was removed and replaced by board members that dont even have enough airport concern to meet more than 3 times a year now that the money has been siezed.

So sit on your behind and write editorials about wayne while a lexington newspaper digs into the activities surrounding the local airport and the merions branch land grab.

ANE needs to go. We, the people, need a newspaper that actually prints news that happens around here. Something more than what happens in other places and ballgames. Things that go on around here never make the paper or news. Someone should start a newspaper for the Pike Co citizens, with LOCAL NEWS.
