I agree 100% MCN,IA will not report anything that may move McNairy County, Selmer, Adamsville forward. Neither will any paper do any investigation reporting. Like you stated they do not go against the status quo.
There has to be some "movement" to report on any. How is that a newspapers fault. If the county progesses they will report. Spectrum is a good example. Why dont you think before you post nonsense?

What did they really say about Spectrum? Spectrum was adding 26 new jobs,,why not some reporting as to how it was that Spectrum could add 26 new jobs? Was the jobs made advailabe through a grant? Did Spectrum just take this as its on because business is great. What was the pay? where should people apply for a job? What are the jobs? Send a reported to Spectrum to ask questions?

Sophie and Katherine have the same writing style and IP address. No big deal.
So, you think its okay for some family members and some friends of the deceased to threaten people and businesses while their grieving? Is that some sort of grieving process? That makes no sense.
NO...it obviously isnt justified by someone DYING, Im sure there is a much better reason to be emotionally out of control right now. Not trying to argue with you and I know some peoples comments and even their actions could be considered extreme. The fact remains that apparently some people find it more effective to make it as hard as possible on those trying to be malicious. Right or wrong. Their hearts are filled with lovw for that man and they will surely continue to let him rip and be remembered for the man he truly was instead of the animal that he is portrayed as. Drugs can do so much to people. As hard as it may be please try to remember that he was a victom of a terrible disease--addiction. And please dont judge because from what ive seen, the ones who judge the most are the ones who end up getting a taste of the madness will strike close to home. whether it be themselves or worse, someone they truly love and think that they are above such things. It happens. Please just try to see their view and if ya cant empathize then just dont judge.

Jackson, who was easily re-elected to Congress on November 6, may have to resign his seat and serve time.

Jesse Jackson Jr. speaking at the 2008 Democratic National Convention.

CHICAGO - Amid reports that he may have misused campaign funds, Illinois congressman Jesse Jackson Jr has hired a lawyer to handle negotiations with the federal government on possible plea deal in which he would resign from the House of Representatives and spend time in prison, media said.

CBS 2 television reported on Saturday and Fox News Chicago on Monday, citing an unnamed source, that Jackson hired Dan Webb, a former U.S. attorney in Chicago who represents defendants in high-profile corruption cases to represent the 47-year-old lawmaker.

Both reports said Jackson, who was easily re-elected to Congress on November 6, may have to resign his seat and serve time in prison under terms of the deal being negotiated.

Webb and a spokesman for Jackson did not immediately respond to requests for comment from Reuters.

Last week, the Chicago Sun-Times reported that Jackson was under investigation for allegedly misusing campaign funds to decorate his home and to buy a $40,000 Rolex watch for a female friend. Reuters has not confirmed the report.

Jackson, the son of civil rights activist and former presidential candidate Jesse Jackson, was treated for at least six weeks at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, this summer for bipolar disorder, a psychological condition marked by extreme mood swings. He has been on medical leave from the House since June and has not been seen in public.

In addition to his health issues, Jackson has been the subject of a House ethics committee probe over an alleged bribe offered by a Jackson supporter in 2008 to then Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich.

The bribe was said to be intended to entice Blagojevich to appoint Jackson to the Senate seat vacated by President Barack Obama. Jackson has admitted to lobbying for the seat, but denied knowing about any money offered to Blagojevich, who has since been convicted on corruption charges and imprisoned.

In October, several newspapers, including the Chicago Sun-Times and the New York Times, reported that Jackson was being investigated by the FBI for possibly misusing campaign money. The FBI would not confirm the reports.

Yes he was just Re-Elected.

Mr. John Curtis was one of our great citzens. Because of men like him we're free today. He was a fixture on main street as a Pharmicist at Rexall Drugs for years. He was always helpful in any capacity he could be.

He was a great American and I salute him for all he was to us. RIP Mr. Curtis

Yes he was a gangmember but thats beside the point here. His beloved family are tax paying citiens of Selmer so they shpuld take extra care on how they write it up about him.
