I have also quit the CWJ. I did not want to cancel my subscription, I wanted to support a local paper, but I got so bored with the articles about the dam repair and the refinery start up every few days that I gave up. It appears to me that the reporters never leave the building on W Mt Vernon St. There are so many subjects that I think of each day that could be investigated or written about. The paper has never been as good as when the Joplin family ran it.
sorry newspaper

The Commonwealth Journal isn't fit to house train your dogs on.

The only thing good about the local paper is the crossword puzzle. For some reason, the editor and publisher seem to think that news stops at the city limits sign. Fellas, there is a big world out there, and some of it could impact Pulaski County! There are politics other than Hal Rogers and Mitch McConnell. There are companies that are looking for areas to expand. There are opportunities for earnings capabilities beyond the confines of Somerset. The name of the paper is the Commonwealth Journal. Unless the commonwealth is only Somerset, the name just doesn't apply.

Not as far as the so-called CJ is concerned. I gave up on them years ago. The so called thing seems to be written by second graders and the so-called editor's comments were about kindergarten level in their thought processes. Now, who can guess, based on that wen I gave up on them?

Today's headline is a hoot. "Citizens join the batle against local gas prices." What the heck is a 'batle?'

The CJ is one of the best small newspapers in Kentucky. But obviously most Kentuckians are illiterate ... especially the ones on Topix.

The American Newspapers have been replaced by Television News reports and Internet reporting, reporting Breaking News, as it happens.

It served its purpose when times were at a slower pace in life, prior to 9-11.

Even the comics section was the first page most people turned to, to read, laugh and relax after a days work.

Now we have cell phones that have multi-function capabilities, even if were are driving, riding, or (sometimes) flying.

Times have changed,.........

The Commonwealth Journal is always full of misspellins and gramatical erors. It kind of makes us look kind of stupid to outsiders.
