I hate that newspaper...no objective news is available, and often the important stuff is ignored. Political bias are obvious.
The "Gossip" pages are shameful and shouldn't even be in there. Most newspapers waste only a tiny section on such foolishness. Same goes for the court/police reports. It's horrible. Classifieds? pathetic. They should research other successful papers, and learn what makes a good paper.

Well repulsed it appears you have some sort of problem with the newspaper. I see you mentioned the court notes. Is your name in those notes?? I would guess so or you would not be so ďrepulsedĒ of this paper. It happens to be a pretty good newspaper, sometimes I donít agree with everything that is written in it but then again I donít always agree with everything thatís written in the Lexington Herald either. As far as it is being bias, well I must disagree with that one also. From what I have seen and read they only report the facts and news that is going on in our community. So if you want to be taken seriously, please be more specific on exactly what repulses you. For instance whatís your name, what has been written that has made you so upset. Maybe if you would provide this info then people would look at you differently and feel sorry for your sorry tell. And if you donít agree with the above, then just donít subject yourself to the newspaper and you will not be repulsed!!

I forgot about that part of the paper, when they ask for the public opinion. That was one of my favorite parts. They definitely should bring it back :)
that was when d.l. davis was the editor. it was a real good newspaper then.

I feel that the paper should give a little more information on what is going on in the community. For instants: County crime on the rise. They should at least let the public know in what areas this is taking place. If the has been a home broken into the should at least name the area it happened they can do this without listing any names. That way people in the area would be on on the lookout and maybe even be able to catch anyone involved. The public needs to be more aware of whats happening and where at.

It was Walt Turner and it was sooo long ago. If I'm not mistaken he did a little time over it. He is actually a very kind and sweet man. He missed on purpose when shooting at Walt. That was a bad thing that he did but he really isn't a bad guy!

The charm of Salyersville is the old fashioned way things are done and the newspaper is one of best examples.If you want a big city paper then buy the Lexington paper. I love reading about the Senior Citizens and Betty's Blackboard and Todd Preston's news. If it wasn't for the draw of old fashioned things, especially Founder's Day, what would we have to draw visitor's to town. The people who live in other states love the paper and look forward to getting it every week and so do I. I don't know what gossip page the writer was talking about because it must be missing from my paper.There are many things that could be done to improve the paper but leave the rest of it alone.The paper is just like anything else, a choice, and it's your choice to buy it or not.If you don't like it don't buy it but as for me, I will look forward to getting it from my mailbox every Thursday.

I think the Salyersville Independent is a piece of "Junk Mail"! It's not worth one Penny, much less fifty cents! Besides, they can't get any story straight!! One has already heard what they print, on "Your News Today", and Ritt gets it Right!! They print stuff that is not accurate, by relying on someone's word or statement! They should get the facts, before they print it!

Doesn't Mike Prater's son, David, and Grayson Smith own the Independent now? Yea, Mike has moved "On Up", or should I say "On Down", to HELTON BRANCH! Wow! I never thought I would ever see that happen! He used to be an upstanding man!

The "Big Whigs" have gone to the Dogs!!

I like the idea of interviewing the older, more well known citizens of the county. Would be a nice addition to the paper. If they need the room, maybe they could take out courthouse notes. I see no reason to post who's in jail for what. That's only for the nosy, much like topix!
